Clean and family friendly enough! Hotel itself and facilities are more 3 star than 4! The location makes it. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Massage ladies litter the hotel grounds. They are a bit ignorant and seem to loiter around sometimes! Rooms can be smoked in and we were next to heavy smokers so had to put up with heavy smoke on the balcony which ruined most of our chance to enjoy the view smoke free and worse, smoke entered the room via our air-conditioning! Did not stop sneezing until smokers left, two days before we did! Don't stay at Bhuri wing. Sewage smell. Food good. Big plus!

Having been to Patong beach numerous times, Kata was such a refreshing change. Much less hassle, better quality restaurants and generally better experience all round. The staff at the hotel seemed more interested than those we encountered in Patong and nice little touches like roving masseurs & manicurists were well enjoyed. Numerous pools & bars meant you din't have to get caught up in a group crowd. Would happily stay here again.

Nice quiet location and beach but that's about it. We recently stayed at the Katathani Resort. Apart from the wide selection of pools available ( 5 in total) nothing stood out as exceptional. The resort itself is quite big and is almost in two sections. We stayed in the Bhuri wing away from the beach. Rooms are clean but the hotel in general is quite dated. The entire resort can do with a make over. What let the hotel down was the service. Staff try to be friendly but hardly anyone speaks good English and communicating can become a chore. There were four of us in one room and most days we were left with only two beach towels. Getting another two took three phone calls to housekeeping! On some days we weren't even left with fresh drinking water. These are just two of numerous examples where we thought the service could be better. Perhaps we have been spoilt by staying at other better resorts but this one is average at best.

Dear TDKakkos,
Thank you for taking time to share your valuable feedback with us through Trip Advisor. We are glad that you enjoyed our quite location and beach, the wide selection of pools and clean rooms. However we are sorry you were disappointed with our level of service. Our staff is currently undergoing an intensive re-training including English lessons to improve service and communications and your feedback about the housekeeping has been also shared with the department for future improvement.

If given the chance, our team will do their best to try to spoil you upon another visit to our unique location!

Best Regards,
Customer Relations Manager

Hotel is situated along the beautiful beach, unfortunately we were unable to swim in the ocean due to the rough water, no fault of the hotel. The grounds were very well kept and the pools were a plenty. Unfortunately the same old problem of pool lounges taken or reserved at 0700 in the morning. No controls or towels removed after the time period.
Restaurants were excellent and reasonably priced. Good meals all round. Shops on site were the same price as outside as was the orders for your bar fridge, a pleasant surprise.
We stayed 12 days and booked everything to our rooms, all meals and on departure our meals, drinks, massages and the likes, what a surprise with the cost. Very very reasonable.
It was our anniversary during our stay, we advised when we booked and on return to our room on our anniversary day, what a pleasant surprise to find to lovely cakes and decorations in our room.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Would stay again.

Room Tip: ensure you get the room you booked.

We travelled to the Katathani in July 2013. We stayed in the Thani Wing. I would definitely recommend that you choose the Thani wing as it is on the beach side of the hotel and in a much nicer position.
This is the first time we have been to Thailand. We usually go to Bali at least once a year and normally stay in 5 star resorts in Nusa Dua.
The hotel is lovely and I have no faults with it. Our room was very clean and spacious and beds were very comfortable. We had lovely views of the ocean. The pool areas are beautiful. The ladies who do massages around the pools are amazing and I would definitely recommend you have a massage while relaxing by the pool.
This hotel is in the south end of Kata so it is a lot quieter area. We liked that. But if you want a busier, more lively area you might want to stay in Kata, Karon or even Patong. For us (travelling with a two year old) we found the location ideal as we could easily take a Tuk Tuk into the busier areas.
The beach at this hotel is amazing. The hotel takes up the whole beach. So even though it is a public beach, it feels more like a private beach. It is much quieter and more peaceful especially compared to the beaches in Kata and Karon.
The staff were pleasant but not as friendly and helpful as they are in Bali.
I will definitely return and would recommend it.

Room Tip: Try to choose a room on the second or third floor in the Thani wing for lovely seas views.

Hotel is in a perfect spot and spread out along a beautiful beach so excellent for families with kids. All rooms look onto the beach or pools. The grounds were immaculate and the pools are large and clean. There are many choice of restaurants. We had an excellent meal in the Italian restaurant where the food was delicious and we had some fantastic cocktails. The staff were absolutely wonderful and only too willing to help.
It is also very close to shops/market
