Stayed for a week. Room was clean and spacious for the price. Central location in Kata Beach so very convenient. Pool area was ok but not spectacular. Very quiet of a night. Room serviced daily. Restaurant at the front does excellent pizza should you choose to dine there.

Room was big, clean and a great view. Everything is literally on your doorstep, 5min walk to beach, restaurants right outside along with money exchange and mini mart. Pool area no music or atmosphere.

We booked to stay here for 10 days although we were going to Phi Phi for 3 nights, we left our main clothes at the hotel and took what we needed. The staff were very helpful and the room was cleaned every day. It was a very big room but unfortunately we couldn't open the patio doors to the balcony... More

Good value, helpful staff, great pool, pay a little extra for one of the rooms with direct pool Access, they are great. Good breakfast. Usual ill mannered Russians pushing and shoving and noisy PRC Chinese but the resort cannot be blamed for that.

We booked the kata poolside resort last minuet. I whizzed through other reviews, looked at the price and decided I'd take the risk (as this place has a lot of negative reviews, albeit mostly the older ones) I had called and asked them to arrange a taxi from Phuket airport, the taxi was waiting for us as requested, this was...

Great value ,close to beach ,good service ,air conditioned would recommend , swimming pool is good with shade and wifi worked everywhere,staff were most helpful, we found it to be perfect for Kata as it is central to every thing also we stayed on top floor and found stairs easy to navigate if that's an issue for some people.

Not many people know about this little hotel but we really loved it. We had a pool access room which made a lot of difference. Fun to swim when ever and lounge on your balcony. Only slight downside was that it's not busy enough to have the pool's swimup bar staffed all the time, but instead they have a phone... More

9 years since we visited Phuket when we were based near to Patong which was then an Aussie Blackpool with girlie bars. But we preferred the beaches of Karon, Kata and Kata Noi. Kata Poolside proved to be ideal for us Kata beach being only a 4 or 5 minute walk, Kata Noi is a little further and over a... More

This resort is really good value for money. The room is quite spacious and is very conveniently located with a quick 5 minute walk to the beach. The staff here were so friendly and made you feel so welcomed. They were also very helpful in arranging transfers from the airport and to your next destination. The room was a bit... More

This hotel isn't the greatest but nothing bad considering about the price. The restaurants, convenience stores, souvenir stores...etc are around this hotel. The swim up bar at the pool was closed. There were ants in the room, and the room wasn't that clean but the staffs working there are nice.
