“Cosy & quiet mini resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Situated about midway of Sawatdirak Road. Directly opposite of Thara Patong Beach Resort. Royal Phawadee consist of main block and smaller villas, all solid wooden structures. Plenty of plants, including palm trees and orchids on its ground. Hence mosquitoes too. Also cats. Got 2 adjoining rooms on the ground floor of a villa. Rooms are cosy and clean. Old box TV with many channels, some with poor reception. Have well stock mini fridge with can drinks, including beers with price comparable to Family Mart/ 7 Eleven. Also a safe. Shampoos, soap cakes, bath gels, lotion, shower caps provided. But no shaver nor toothbrush. International adaptor and umbrellas provided in room. Free-form swimming pool immediately after main block. Clean and well maintained. Cleaned every morning during our stay for 5 nights. Breakfast spread is satisfactory. Slight change of menu everyday. Have egg station. Breakfast area is aircon but small. The hotel is never crowded in view of limited rooms. Hence they can't accommodate large good of tourist. Good for those who wants a quiet surrounding and atmosphere. Construction of damaged part of building still going on but not so noisy. Our villa is next to it.
Advise for those interested in hawker food. Ask the price first since they charge foreigners much higher.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

i booked this hotel as our honeymoon hotel and was extremely happy when we arrived at the hotel. i managed to get the hotel's transportation service for airport - hotel & hotel - airport trips for 1500b. it was so exciting to be in a traditional thai surrounding in the middle of Patong town. it was even more exciting when we entered the room. i managed to inform and request to the hotel for a honeymoon decor prior to our trip and they managed to do it without no extra charge. The room was not so big, just nice for us both, very clean with nice interior. we missed our first day breakfast as we were rushed for our Phi Phi Island trip, but managed to have the complimentary breakfast on day 2. not so much choices but im happy they served halal foods too. during our stay there was no renovation and the stay was al calm and quite as we expected. Mnay halal foods and stalls. Make sure to book a scooter from the hotel to go about around the island for 300b per day. If you're planning to stay in this hotel during ur phuket trip, make sure to deal with Wipada, a lady at the reception. She is so good most of our booking trips around Phuket and any issues during our stay was done by her. Other receptionists there are not good with their English that you have to repeat urself several times. Overall, we enjoy Royal Phawadee Village hotel and would recommend our friends and family to go there.

Room Tip: Find Wipada, the receptionist there. Other receptionist has bad English forcing you to repeat yourse...

Fantastic quiet location close to whatever you want from a lively resort even in low season. Huge jacuzzi in room but a pity that it took so long to fill. Would certainly consider going back on next visit and hopefully having some company in the bath!

Location spot on. Really close to beach. Close to Bangla for the extreme nightlife if you crave it, but not so close it encroaches on you if you wish to avoid.

Excellent front desk. Beautiful rooms. Pool area never crowded when we were there.

Bit pricey by Thai standards but not extortionately so.

Pros: Nice pool area. Comfortable pool chairs. Air Con. Great breakfast, so many options. Great location, close to the beach and Bangla street

Cons:
Cold showers (80 deg F).
Cockroaches in bathroom.
mosquitos everywhere, I am assuming because of the greenery and plants everywhere.
Loud construction as of May 2013.
Not the most friendly of staff at reception.
I stayed in the cheapest room and it was very small for the price I payed. Not much room to walk around the bed.

Room Tip: Try to to pick the standard room. Quite expensive and you don't get much for your money. We sta...

We chose RPH for something different. the Thai huts were beautiful and the grounds were nice.
We stayed in one of the Villa's (room 501).
when we made the booking (january) the hotel told us that they had had a fire on the top floor above the restaurant, and there would be construction going on during our stay. This was very appreciated.
PROS
--------
It was an excellent room, that had a SPA bath, which was huge.
There was also a nice big balcony with overhead fan which we used every day.
We enjoyed our stay very much.
The villa is really solid and well insulated and did cut down on a lot of the construction noise.

CONS
--------
There is construction going on in the site adjoining the hotel. They were pulling down the existing building, so i am not sure if there will be a new one going up. This was on the right hand side of the hotel (if looking from the front).

The beds are hard...this seems to be a common thing in Asia. The hotel did put down 2 mattress protectors to see if this help, but it only had a minimal affect.

Just want to highlight something during our stay....
While this construction was going on next door, and has nothing to do with the hotel and they have no control over this, the manager offered us to go and speak to the people doing the construction, to see if the noise could be lessened. Even though i thought this would have no affect, it was a very nice gesture on their behalf.

Room Tip: When you book ask if there is still construction going on next door and if so, ask for a room on the...

Nice Pool and Garden Area, once you enter Royal Phawadee you´ve made it into a real Oasis in this buzzling Pattong Area. We enjoyed the Hotel very much. Nice breakfast also and professional Staff. We can highly recommend to not choose the cheapest rooms.
