I stayed here for a week in July 08 as a single traveller and returned for a night last August 09 with a friend. This place is is great, it's not on the beach but it's just a short walk away. You get your own bungalow which is modern, clean and well equipped (hair-drer,tv,dvd). It's right next to all the restaurants too. I stayed in Rico's hotel in Patong (which was also nice) before deciding to switch to Kata. Patong makes Benidorm look like Cannes but for better or worse it offers the only night life that I saw on Phuket. Kata itself is mostly made up of families, not the best place for backpackers to stay. But if you're looking for a gorgeous beach, some nice restaurants and market stalls then you'll be more than happy. While you're there walk over to Mom-Tri's boathouse hotel and restaurant, it's expensive- my friend and I just had a few cocktails in the bar- but the views over the sea are stunning and the staff were really friendly.In fact if I return to Phuket I'll blow the budget and stay there...if only...
