“Better than anticipated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Hotel was right on the beach. Pool seating was limited and not much shade but still good all teh same. Rooms a good size, very clean and tidy.
Excellent lcoation and nosie for BangLa Road not an issue. Staff friendly and mopst spoke some english. I am not sure what people expect when they complain on reviews that staff dont speak English, what do they expect ion a foriegn country.

Room Tip: If you just tell teh time share people that yiou are not interesterd they will leave you alone. Thei...

Stayed in Nov 2012 in one of their se-facing Andaman Studio. AC was not working and they did not check it, also before allotting it...too bad in hotel industry. View from our 1st floor balcony was good though as per our expectation it was covered for their spa. Did not utilise their restaurant and other facilities. Room was clean & staff was friendly. Unfortunately in the hi-tech era they had internet room not free WiFi :(( Over-all if you want to stay bang on Patong Beach, this is good hotel otherwise their are many other very good options and you can save your BAHT, too...
One good gesture...they had a wedding in the premises and they informed all the guests in-advance & tendered apology :))

If booking a room, take pool-view 1st floor rooms...

Room Tip: Pool view 1st floor

I'd just like to say watch out with these guys, they have English, Australian and I'm sure other english speaking Shisters trying to sell you some sort of time share holiday programme. They entice you with the possibility of free iphones/ipads in exchange for 90mins of your time. Before they start they make sure you have your credit card handy because at the end of their speel they want you to hand over a deposit of $1600. They don't let you see any paperwork and you have to make the decsion then and their. It was all pretty doggie to me and I can't beleive that anyone would hand over this sort of money without any background checks first.

They say "If it's too good to be true, then it probably isn't". So take care and keep your eyes and ears open.

Hotel is based at the prime location and has easy access to the beaches.
My suggestion to all would be to not use the hotel massage facility as the employee gets paid anyway by the hotel so the service is really poor compared to outside massage parlours.
Rooms were pretty neat.
Didn't find the staffs as friendly but hey the breakfast was excellent.

Room Tip: Choose the room near to the pool with balcony.

A nice hotel for budget travelers right on the beach, the ambiance was also very peaceful, the breakfast was also very good, also easily accessible to shops & restaurants. the hotel needs improvement in regard to maintenance of it's property

Room Tip: always go for sea facing rooms, not to choose city facing rooms

We booked here for 4 days. Our second time to this resort. It is a good place if you want the busy nightlife and the sea. The hotel is smack on the beach, nothing fancy but worth what you pay for. Good breakfast on the beach, friendly and courteous staff all the way. Nice small pool. We had good rooms, comfortable. Overall it was a good holiday. Willl come back.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms facing the pool

My parents came over to Thailand (from Canada) for a visit and they wanted to see the spectacle that is Bangla Road so we wanted something near the nightlife and so that we could avoid the hassles of the TukTuk mafia. Patong Bay Garden resort is smack-dab right in the middle of it all, and proved to be exactly what we were looking for.

We got two rooms in total, both were Deluxe Balcony rooms and were nothing special, yet they suited us fine. The rooms are on the verge of needing a once over though, and the bathrooms are getting a bit old and tired looking. However, what you're paying for here is the location of the hotel, which is right on the beach and a hop, skip and a jump from the main area of Patong, if not the main area of Phuket.

The overall service was fine, nothing to write about. The staff were cordial but not overly, and the cleaning ladies were very nice and friendly, which is the standard go in Thailand in my experience. The breakfast buffet was really good, they had bacon (which is not all that common at breakfast buffets outside of 5 star in Thailand, believe it or not) the restaurant is also situated right near the beach, which makes for a nice morning meal.

The hotel grounds were nice, and the area on the beach directly in front of the hotel has lounge beach chairs and umbrellas, but you have to pay 100baht ($3) to sit in one of 'em, no joke. This surprised the heck out of my canuck father, who thought the attendant was joking when he asked him for 100baht. My father just laughed at the guy and sat in the chair. It wasn't until I came out an hour later that he learned the beach attendant guy was serious. Also, the hotel pool is ok, nothing spectacular and for those who care, it's the deepest pool I ever saw in Thailand. It's gotta be about 14 feet deep, which again, is very uncommon at hotel resorts in this . All in all, a good hotel and I would recommend it if you're concerned about location and convenience.
