Crowne Plaza Phuket is a very nice and quiet place in Phuket, perfect for relaxtion.The Hotel is new and very clean. Nice Pool, not too big direct at sea side. You have more or less an own lagoon for Crowne Plaza Hotel, but the water is very shallow and during low tide the beach does not look very nice. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Food is okay , but I expected a bit more of local Thai kitchen. Large selection at breakfast buffet, but also mostly western food. The bar has nice selection on Cocktails, with some "strange" combination, like Tom Yam Cocktail, but worth tasting.
Management is getting in touch with guests personally and invites them on Friday evening for drinks and snacks at the bar,
The Hotel is 30 minutes away from the crowded Patong Beach and 10 minutes to Phuket Town, for short trips Taxi service is in front of the Hotel, but you should rent a bike (200Bht/a day) or a Car (from 1000baht a day) if plan to you stay longer.More
