We stayed 8 nights and thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. Travelling for a birthday in a party of 6 females. We had especially requested Garden Wing rooms which on arrival the wing wasnt actually called garden wing however the rooms near the Bangla Rd exit are the ones we stayed in. We loved our rooms. Friends stayed in rooms 472 and 474. If staying here I would request a room before 470 as our friends in 474 were light sleepers and could hear a little noise from Bangla Rd. We didnt find the noise a problem from our room. The bathrooms were just lovely - very modern and clean. Never have I had such fantastic shower pressure in a shower before, this was fantastic for relaxing after a full day of events. The beds and pillow are firm however we slept extremely well everynight.
Hotel hospitality - we found the hotel to be very accommodating - we had pre- arranged a cake for our arrival via email and we had a decidant chocolate cake when we arrived along with a fruit platter. The staff throughout the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful and in the main lobby always 2-3 doorman to greet you with a Sa-wa-dee!! The ladies that serviced the rooms daily were just lovely and we found them to be very trustworthy. We also blocked the toilet in our room (our fault - not allowed to flush toilet paper down toilet but we didnt read this sign until it was too late) and this was fixed immediately upon request.
Breakfast - This was just lovely - If you couldnt find something to fill you up in this huge breakfast selection you must be very hard to please. Eggs cooked any which way while you wait, selection of asian foods including rices, noodles, salads and vegies, beans, bacon, croissants, pastries, vaiety of breads for toasts and variety of jams, pancakes or french toast with syrups, yogurts, juices, cereals and a lovely selection of fresh fruit. We found the breakfast was always fresh and lovely.
Location - Well what can I say - if your going to Phuket to shop, this hotel is in a really great position. There are 3 entrances to the hotel. The main entrance which is just around the corner from Junceylon Shopping centre (great airconditioned market downstairs!) about a 3-4 minute walk with street stalls every step you take. 2nd Entrance which is the opposite way to the main entrance will take you straight to the beach about 100 metres again with restaurants and shops every step you take. Down this walkway you will find the back entrance to Tower Massage - the girls are fantastic and very good at what they do. They also have a great fish spa. We visited here several days for foot reflexology, head and shoulder massages, pedicures and manicures and hot stone massages. Wonderful and very cheap. Just down from Tower Massage is Sweets Restaurant (owned by same owner) which is great restaurant that alot of Aussies eat at. We had several meals and every meal was delicious. Very clean and very safe to eat at. The 3rd entrance (via the garden pool) takes you straight to Bangla Rd, about 50 meters, again every step you walk past restaurants and shops. At the front entrance there is also a currency exchange and a little travel kiosk which was great to get prices from. The hotel also has a tour desk which we bartered with also.
I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone wanting to do lots of shopping as it is in a fantastic location for this. We also walked to the Otop markets and several other markets are just a short walk away. As long as your not looking for chandaliers but looking for something confortable, clean and great value for money - well then this hotel is the one for you!!.WE LOVED THE PATONG RESORT!!
Garden wing rooms by the pool - no higher room # than 470 otherwise too close to Bangla Rd
