This was my sixth stay at Panwa since 2003. I have visited some 40-50 hotels in Phuket through the years, including several of Panwa's competitors in Patong, Kata, Kamala and Karon.
My personal opinion is that Cape Panwa offers the best combination of price/quality/service in Phuket. You can stay at more fancy resorts, for a much higher price, but I bet there is one of the main factors in Panwa missing:
*Beautiful, quiet beach
*Shady coconut palms front the beach (many of the Phuket beaches only offers pine trees)
*Excellent service by staff both in reception and at the restaurants and beach
*Great rooms (though bathrooms are a little outdated, but well maintained)
*Wide selection of restaurants, both onsite and in the close area
*A zen-minimalistic, VERY stylish spa-center, high quality and moderately priced
*A very spaceous hotel area, compared to almost all newer resorts
Warning: Do NOT book your stay at Cape Panwa if you are going to Phuket for pure party. The hotel is located in a very quiet area of Phuket.
As you probably have guessed, I will return to Panwa:)
