4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2009

This hotel provides everything you would expect from a Holiday Inn. We stayed for 2 weeks in the main wing. The pools and grounds are fabulous for adults and children alike with plenty of sunloungers, free towels and the (busy but lovely) beach is just across the road. The breakfasts are fabulous and the food at Terrazzo and Seabreeze buffet is also good - if expensive. The older kids club is a great place for the children to escape the sun and despite advertising as 12+ they allow younger children if the staff are happy that they are mature enough to be left. The rooms are spacious and very clean and comfortable, although the balconies are small. The hotel staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful.

Patong is busy and very tourist orientated. Expect to see McD's, KFC, Hargen Daas, Burger King etc... Bangla Road is a sight if you are not easily shocked but is easily avoided if its not your style. Outside the hotel you will be approached to buy things from shops, sellers and the words "You wanna TukTuk" or "You wanna suit" will ring in your ears!! However, it is all very friendly - its easy to just keep walking or give a simple "No thanks". If you do want to buy - decide what you want to pay and Barter!! Be prepared to walk away to get the price down...if the seller doesn't come down, someone else will!

If you like Thai Food eat away from the main streets - walk down the side roads a little and its half the price. Massage and beauty treatments in the hotel may be cheaper than the UK and great if you really want a spa atmosphere but for Thai massage, foot massage etc. try one the of many local massage places. We had 2 x 1 hour Thai massages and 2 x 1 hour foot massages for around £10 in total!! Ask for gentle though, unless you like pain!!

Try Scuba Cat for Diving/snorkelling (5 min walk from Hotel). Great for experienced and beginners alike. Our children did a "Bubblemaker" which they loved! We enjoyed the Fantasy show and the aquarium, which may not be quite as good as the UK equivalent but at around £2 each its well worth a visit).

This time of year (end of August) is rainy. We had a lovely week with a bit of rain and a rainy week with a bit of lovely!! However, its nice and warm even in the rain!

Excellent hotel, always book a room in the Busakorn wing. I have stayed there on my last 4 trips to Phuket. I won't stay anywhere else.
Buffet Breakfasts are to die for!!
Hotel location is fantastic with the best markets right across the road.
If you order room service the beef burger is amazing!!
I love this place!

Hi to all you fellow travellers, Just spent 8 Nights at this great resort, cant say enough about the way we were treated right from the moment we arrived, fast check in, rooms were ready (9.45am) great staff, great food, great service,nothing seemed to much trouble.stayed on the 3rd floor of the main wing,very quiet at night time no noise at all. Close location to everything 711 across the road,walking distance to any sort of night life you like. Stayed in there basic style of room, no complaints, cold a/c great bed and decor. I will be returning to phuket within 6mths and will be staying here again for sure.

Stayed at Busakorn Wing. Quiet and more romantic compared to the main wing which is most of the time crowded and more happening. Think it's a bit pricey. Food is good. But staff services can be further improved. Dont expect any seaview. Not too bad, but with that kinda price, will try out other resort the next time.

Holiday Inn has to be the number one choice for families. If the price is right for you then do not hesitate to choose the holiday inn. There are lots of nice hotels in patong but if you have young children the holiday inn is the one for you. The kids are catered for from 9 am to 9 pm. The kids club was well run and safe. The pools were clean and well maintained. Location is perfect, a short walk through the pool area to the beach road and a short walk through the back of the hotel to the jungceylon shopping mall and Otop markets. Rooms were clean and comfortable, The superior room perfectly accomodated our family of 4. But the absoute "piece de resistance" was the breakfast. Every imaginable breakfast item was available and also some things you wouldn't imagine wanting for your breakfast like Roast Beef with mustard and vegetables! We have stayed in many hotels (a lot of them much more expensive!) in different countries and I can honestly say this is the best breakfast buffet we have ever seen. A very relaxing experience in the middle of busy patong!

Stayed here in June as part of my 35th Birthday Celebrations. I seriously cannot fault anything with this hotel/resort. On my birthday I even had a cake from the Holiday Inn staff (i had not appraised them it was my birthday) and had 4 staff members singing in my room for it. Was a wonderful touch :)

The location here is amazing, and you feel safe in the surroundings. Sure there are the normal touts outside the hotel, But hey, you're in Thailand, and you will get them anywhere where tourists are... Live with it.

The rooms were excellenty appointed, and very comfortable. Loved the big sofa type thing for afternoon naps.

I am already looking at going back there for Christmas as it was such a good time, and would recommend this hotel to anyone.
