“Noisy, in need of good revamp and change of owner”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Sadly this hotel has lost the plot, through the Owners greed and ignorance he as ruined this hotel in a matter of 2 years. Time share people drive you nuts, noise keeps you awake. Rooms dull, dingy, musky and are in need of all new fixtures and fittings.
This used to be a good hotel given it's great location on the beach, and great for young families and older couples, who would spend weeks at this resort. Now it's only good for the nosiy, singles or groups of youngsters staying just a couple of nights causing mayhem.
Definitely NOT Worth staying here Too expensive would only give it a maximum of 1 star. The owner must be loosing money on this hotel by his total lack of respect for decent holiday makers spending good money, that's proberly why he's having a mid life crisis and killing this, what was a great place once upon a time.
My advice would be keep away at all costs, or be warned this could ruin your holiday.

This is the first hotel , I stayed ever ,so nearer to beach. Breakfast lobby is at the beach. You can touch the sea water walking 2 minutes from your room. Nice view of Andaman sea. Beach was nice and clean. Room rate was affordable.

Room Tip: Book the sea view room

My wife & I have nothing but praise for the way we were treated & the friends we have made in the Resort.We had the presentation & purchased the deal on offer without hesitation.When we said we planned to stay in Phuket for 12 months,we were offered a room in one of the Groups hotels at a great monthly rate.The restaurant is great ,the hotel location ,on the beach,is perfect,and the happy hour superb.
We highly recommend ,if you are given the opportunity,to listen to the presentation and take advantage of the facilities on offer.

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.
