What a perfect place to stay and spend time with your family. The food was all good, especially breakfast. Lunch at seaside has a massive amount of servings, the staff are nice and approaching. I always look forward on talking to Maebel, she’s very easy to communicate with and always smiling. The view was very nice because our sun bed are located at the beach front. I will definitely go back again when have time.

Hotel's Favorite
We spent 9 wonderful relaxing nights at this hotel as a family of four including 2 teenage daughters. The staff are so friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble and helped us organise a couple of trips. The food is lovely at the hotel and we also ate at the reastaurants nearby, particularly good is the beer garden and pit thai. The views of the beach and the sunsets are beautiful. If you want a good base with relaxing days this place is perfect.

Spent two weeks here in march,everything great from the lovely clean room, to the pools and the two restaurants.The food was exceptional the Buffet had theme nights,the seaside restaurant was all carte and all freshly made this was lunchtime restaurant and at night you could use either buffet or ala carte. Staff all exceptional especially behind bar ,Zak was exceptional. Not loads entertainment at night but nice bar to relax and chat with other people, there are a few shops and restaurants locally and on the beach restaurants, but we chose to stay with hotel food as so good from burgers to traditional Thai food.tui rep very helpful, went through tui to James Bond island and caves in kayak, big Buddha and Phuket and elephant sanctuary great experience.All in all great holiday and would even consider going back and we dont usually do that.Location perfect on beach plenty loungers or by pool,people not allowed to reserve before 9.30,sea perfect to swim in.Massage brilliant I had 4 roughly 11 pound, finally worth going on long boat plenty on beach take you to island to snorkel then banana beach lovely uncrowned beach.

We spent here a very lovely holiday. The hotel is nice and clean. The general areas are kept clean. Rooms also are well cleaned daily. The pools are big and there are plenty of sunbeds available around them and also on the beach. Staff is nice and very helpful. Breakfast was good and variable enough to get your day started. Some good restaurants nearby. Recommendation especially to Pooh and Friends. Biggest asset for this hotel is the location right on the beach. The beach is n.ice and long where you can find enough activities to you liking or some calmer spots.

The first thing I will say is that the staff here are great! I had some issues with the hotel and they couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful. That said, we left after a few days and went to a different hotel for the remainder of our holiday. This is not 4 star standard. The pool area is lovely, ( although there are signs warning guests not to leave towels on sun beds and disappear!) The rooms, however, are not great at all. They smell quite musty. The paint work is scuffed, the bathrooms are dated, the pillows are dreadful. There are no lifts and some rooms are 4 floors up. Both the bar and the restaurant are outdoor - no air-conditioning and very few fans. We only had breakfast here, but compared to other hotels on our trip it was just ok. The bread and pastries were particularly poor. The area outside the hotel is not great either. It’s quite run down, (although Crave restaurant, which is just across the road, is excellent and worth a visit.) If we had paid quite a bit less, ( which we mostly do), we would have been happy enough, but given what we paid for a 4 star hotel, it just wasn’t good enough.

This hotel is a for anyone that wants to be spoilt. It is very comfortable, the rooms being a good size. They were kept very clean and the bed was so comfortable. The hotel was right on the beach. The staff were amazing always smiling, helpful and very attentive. There were some Philopino trainees there namely Maebel and Louis. They will, no doubt finish the course and go on to do their chosen career. We with them the best for the future along with the others. I spent my birthday there and WOW I certainly enjoyed it. First breakfast. The staff gathered round and gave me a cake and sang Happy Birthday and presented me with a birthday sash. Then at evening the same thing.

A lovely hotel ideally situated on the beach, offering excellent service and food with extremely helpful staff. There were too many beach bars and beach umbrellas for our liking on a stretch of about half - a mile.( past the hotel) However they offered great food and drink . The hotel is one of the best in the area. We opted for a Garden room, they were great quiet and well pointed. Lots of restaurants locally to choose from all selling the same sort of food. We found the alcohol here the most expensive of our holiday paying up to 180 bart a large bottle of lager. Gand T same as the UK . Previous resorts were priced a large beer was 90- 100 barts approx . But still still cheaper than the UK. Two lovely swimming pools which 3/4 were in the shade most of the time due to the 4th floored bedroom blocks.The hotel adopts a excellent policy regarding reserving sunbeds and they stick to it . The local market was a waste of time . But a trip ( organised by the hotel on a the mini bus, cheaper than the local taxis) was well worth it to the old town, just to have a look around for a couple of hours. There is a lot of development taking place outside Bangtao beach. If you are going to go , go now before it becomes very busy and commercial.

Pros: Bangtao Beach is beautiful and the hotel is right on it. Ordering drinks and food from the loungers was fun. The property and rooms are clean, and it is clear that the staff works very hard. Nice free 9am yoga class each day enjoyed by this beginner. Cons: Thank goodness they were able to loan me a room dehumidifier; the room badly needed it. Also, the back of the hotel looks right out on the main drag of a town I did not find appealing. Other: I am an English speaking solo traveler, and other guests who spoke English as their first language were not really present at the hotel during my stay. This hotel is very popular with German retirees and I guess it has been a destination spot for them for many years. It was fun in the morning to walk up the beach to try eating at other hotels. My favorites were the Arinara and further up the beach, Dusit Thani. They accept credit cards.
