Taking kids to Phuket for the first time meant being close to whatever we needed whenever we needed it and not too close to that "other" side of Phuket.
The Holiday Inn was the perfect choice.
The property is on the main beachfront road making it simple to just walk across the road to the beach. 24 x 7 security at the gate made it so much more comfortable.
The property itself is lovely. Lots of open air and space for sitting by the pool, in the garden courtyard, in the bar (seafront of lobby area) and a great choice of restaurants.
Being beach people we didnt use the pool but saw lots of others doing so, being low season it certainly was not crowded.
The rooms are excellent. Good aircon is essential anywhere in Southeast Asia and the aircon in the rooms was perfect. Beds were so comfortable it was hard to get out of them in the morning for the obligatory beach walk, but we made the sacrifice. Bathroom is well equipped with plenty of hot water, amenities and towels. Each room has its own balcony but not recommended after dusk due to the crazy mosquitoes. Internet worked perfectly (and on the beach too!)
Perhaps the best feature though of this hotel is the staff. From the security guys at the gates to reception to the restaurant staff and housekeeping, they were all incredibly friendly and attentive to our needs. Cant speak highly enough of them.
Oh and the Holiday Inn has an onsite nurse, amazingly we had to use these services twice in our stay and on both occasions the advice and treatment given was excellent. Top marks for this.
We'll be back next year.
