“Great Value !!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

We booked a room with pool access and We didnt want to go anywhere else. We chilled by the pool most of the time. The hotel is close to beach, night market and its about 10 mins drive to view point and patong.
We will definately stay there next time!!!

Awesome hotel for a great price. Central location on Kata beach area on main road. Rooms were clean and big, washroom was nice and everything was modern. The pool is dark at night but nice during the day. Wifi was spotty in the rooms at times but free. 5 min to Kata beach, 20 min walk to Karon beach.

We stayed for 7 nights, the staff are way too young and don't speak very good english or understand it very well. Breakfast was average for a 5 star rated hotel. The pool was satisfactory. The steak night was not what was expected and a shame as it put us off for the other night which they have. The buffet looked appealing but unfortunately our travel agent forgot to book us in for the night!
Although in a great place close to the Kata Beach and central to the good restaurants, needs a bit of a renovate but had a nice stay overall.

Room Tip: If you are worried about the noise factor don't choose a room off the pools as the splashing wil...

Booked two nights at this over rated hotel in Kata beach through Asia Rooms. Was a bit disappointing as it gets 5 star rating on their website but was no way close to a 3 star.
Breakfast was average and staff did not seem to be much interested in catering to guest.
The pool size is small and feels congested. The rooms are average.

On the positive side close to the beach and along the walking street where its easy to access
restaurants and bars.

We enjoyed our holiday in Kata, and the hotel itself is lovely. Rooms are colourful and spacious with large bathrooms. Room decor is Thai inspired but not over the top. The hotel pool is lovely and quite a few guests take advantage. The location is also good, just 5 minutes walk from Kata beach and many restaurants and bars nearby. The food at breakfast was also OK, not stellar in terms of variety, but it suited us just fine. The only thing I did notice, was the constant stack of dirty dishes, old towels and cloths at the swim up bar. If you have a pool bar, why fill it with rubbish?!! It looked awful and tacky and indicated to me the hotel didn't really care. The tables and cloths at breakfast were also old, ratty and not very nice looking. The tables just seemed thrown in there, with whatever fits. If there was more thought put in to the layout and presentation of the tables, it would make a big difference. It's not a huge deal really, but taking some pride in these sorts of things does matter to most hotels. We had no issues with the staff, the room or the hotel pool, but the other things did bother me slightly. I enjoyed my time in Phuket, but if I went back I wouldn't stay there again.

My wife and I stayed at the Phuket Tropical Resort in November 2012.
We have extensive travel experience around the world and found that the resort met and quite often exceeded our expectations.
Our boutique style room was on the ground floor and the veranda was a direct access in to the pool. We found both the Thai and Filipino staff to be very friendly (and mostly spoke good english).
We would thoroughly recommend this resort for small families or couples. The pool access was perfect for us but I wouldn't recommend it for for families with very young children as it is very direct pool access.
We will definitely go back and probably take our kids too, who are old enough to benefit from the pool access.

Room Tip: "Steak night" was a free flow BBQ and we were lucky enough to see it twice, so I guess it...

Staff cant speak english at all!!!, its even funny, every time you call ti ask smth its a disaster, you have to wait for five minutes till the girl who can speak english take the phone. VERY noisy inside the room, hotel not new, its not good water in the pool a little bit smelly bathroom, but its not the main problem. We paid 120 $ for room, and they didnt provide toothbrush, is it a joke? First time in my trips in Asia. And to get our internet prepaid dinner we spent 40 minutes arguing!!! We are an easy traveller, bu tis hotel really make me feel uncomfortable with everything, it was just pity to see how bad managment ruin normal hotel
