We have just got back from 2 weeks in Phuket, and we spent 5 nights at this Hotel. On arrival the welcome was lovely, cool drink, refresh towel, and flowers whilst they checked us in. The room was lovely, very spacious and lots of nice little touches such as fresh fruit. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel facilities were excellent - 2 large pools one with pool bar and a small kids one, kids room, games room, free shuttle to beach and Patong. We had breakfast included and it was excellent with a vast choice to suit all nationalities.
The hotel is up a hill and there is the taxi mafia as described by many other reviewers. To be honest the taxi mafia arent that bad they are fairly friendly we had a bit of banter with them and they knew how to have a laugh and a joke with you .The only problem we had was that when we went on a tour the minibus wouldnt come up the hill for pick up or drop off but as its only a few minutes walk down its not really that big an issue. It isnt the only place in Phuket where you get a taxi Mafia and it certainly should not put you off staying at this lovely hotel.
I would definately stay here again if we go back to Phuket.
