Myself and partner stayed for two nights, enjoyed our stay room was tidy and spacious, shower good and towels provided. Nice little pool they have also. Only downside was we asked the lady to call our cab for following morning to go airport she said she had but no cab arrived and reception wasn't open this early. But defo recommend!

When I opened the door to my room, I was overwhelmed by the smell of pungent moth balls. I ask the staff for a room that did not have such a strong smell, but they did not have one. The staff was very kind and tried to be accommodating, they offered me perfumed room spray, and a menthol nose inhaler.... More

Would definitely recommend a trip here. Very clean and well priced. Ali and his staff are all wonderful and extremely friendly. If you stay here you must got o Ali's restaurant on the beach. It serves the finest pizza that i have ever tasted! Just wish we had stayed here longer! Thanks Ali

I booked this room through hotels.com. i think i was mistaken by the pics since they were all of their upgraded rooms shown. We shuld have paid the little extra because they looked way nicer than what we got. This is a budget hotel, but i just felt like the room we were in was kinda gross and it did... More

One of the main reasons I had chosen Taro was its affordability and value for money because I had planned to stay in Phuket for two weeks. It was a good decision in that respect. I had the bungalow room which was the most basic of all the rooms they offer. The room was equipped with a king-sized bed, flat... More

my friend and I stayed here for 5 nights this month. Ali and his family who own the hotel, are an absolute delight, and will do their upmost to accommodate and help. We stayed in one of the bungalow rooms, which are modern but basic. The bed is comfortable, and the rooms are cleaned daily. Nice small pool to cool... More

This hotel is not directly on the beach, its about a 10-15 minute walk down a road and across the main street. I'd recommend this hotel only if your staying in town for more then a few days as there are many places closer to the beach. HOWEVER, the hotel was quite new, and suite has a large kitchen with...
