My Boyfriend and I are staying at the Novotel in phuket for 10 days soon and I am just asking about the general quality of the hotel, staff, activities and facilities. Also any recommendations on if we should request a room in certain part of hotel etc? I am a new traveller and was wondering what to expect. Also any suggested day trip activites around the area that anyone would reccommend, or shopping? Lots of questions I know, but I would like to be prepared. Thanks.
