Stayed here for four nights on one of our frequent family trips to Phuket. We love Kata Beach so decided to book this hotel in the area. I must say, the 4 star rating definitely needs to come down to 3 star. The location is good with a vibrant shopping, eating and bar scene all around. Tons of kids and...

We stayed here for two weeks and have nothing other than good thing to say. Helpful, friendly staff, a decent buffet breakfast to start the day, large clean rooms and a swim up bar and great pool with waterslide to entertain both adults and children. Good location to beach, decent restaurants and bars - we'd definitely stay here again.

A good resort for families, with an excellent kids club centre and kids pools. A quiet, adults pool and special kids breakfast buffet. Concierge and travel info services genuine, don't try to over sell and efficient. Rooms are okay, a kitchen sink included in basic room which is good. Wear and tear starting to show on furniture and fittings. Location...
