We chose this location because of the proximity to the Phuket airport after a long flight and it turned out to be a very good decision! Phuket is supposed to be crowded and 'over-touristy' but Nai Yang beach is a pleasant exception. Lots of locals, and very calm even in high season. The tourists that do come here are Scandinavian senior citizens, so no hassle there. The beach is nice, not as nice as the beaches on the Andaman islands but a good start if you go there after. We didn't try to snorkel but they say it's possible on the north side of the beach. But if that's what you're after you should visit the nearby islands and the marine parks. There's one main street with all the restaurants (with tables on the adjacent beach), bars, shops and travel agencies. The hotel is only a five minute drive from the airport but there's absolutely no noise from the planes. It's actually pretty cool to see them arrive and take off when you're lounging on the beach! The staff is very friendly and helpful. If you arrive late at night there's this wonderful boy who speaks English (more than the rest of the staff) and welcomes you. Yes you have to pay in advance but so what? Just get some money at the ATM on the airport. Or in the walking street of Nai Yang. And it's polite to take of your shoes, so why make a problem of it? Don't let the negative post here turn you off. The 4 rooms in the main building are right on the beach and the new rooms they're building are a little further (2 minutes by foot over the beach) up north and new and wonderful. The new rooms are like bungalows with a good shower, refrigerator with free water, good bed and very clean. There's a small restaurant right next to it, but we preferred the restaurants more in the middle of the beach. At night you sit on the beach under the stars, very romantic. Try the massage school (halfway down the walking street, not on the beach side of the road), for a massage on a table in stead of a mattress. Very comfortable and uncommon in Thailand. If you want to travel to the islands next you can buy a taxi and boat ticket together at the travel agencies. Cheaper then if you take a taxi by yourself.
