I really liked this resort. The rooms were nice and luxurious, the pool was great for sun and cooling off, and this particular resort was just steps away from the beach. The breakfast buffet was delicious, well stocked, with lovely presentation. Great wifi, big bathtub, a lot of dining and bars a close walk. The staff was helpful and friendly.... More

Although it doesn't seem so when you first arrive there, location is just amazing. Close to shops, bars, restaurants, beach, close to everything. Close, but still located in a small street which is very peaceful, thus not disturbing your sleep. Only things that I didn't like are: 1. Bathroom didn't have a window, and drainage system was bad, so, if... More

Breakfast was great . Staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel located very close to the beach, restaurants, massage facilities, etc. WiFi connection is very good. The transfer to the airport is a bit expensive - 1000 baht, but as long as I understood it is a standard price everywhere in Phuket.

Had an excellent stay here. The rooms were kept very clean and the cleaners were in every day. It's in a great location with everything available close hand. Lovely pool area with artificial grass surrounding it and nice sunbeds. Can't fault anything really but the gym didn't cool down enough to have a good workout. That's about all but that... More

Like - location is great as nearby to lot of restaurant, beaches and massage place. Price reasonable, pool is nice, overall people there friendly. Dislike - cleaniness issue. Pool not very clean and even bedsheet not very clean. Breakfast cost about sgd18 but very very very little variety available. Don't waste money on the breakfast here. Go out and eat.
