This hotel is fabulous, it is a tropical paradise where the staff are so kind and friendly. The hotel and the rooms are so clear they sparkly and the staff really go over and beyond for you. The hotel is nestled on beautiful Karon Beach, which has a lifeguard on the beach and clear flags displayed when the tides are strong, however with the choice of numerous pools, water slides and a lazy river you are spoilt for choice. The pool bars all operate on payment on checkout, acting like an all inclusive, so not to worry about money for food and drink.
Karon beach is a short walk, however in 40 degrees heat a tuc tuc is advisable and very cheap.
Patang is the opposite direction for a wild night out and equally affordable.
The food and restaurants on site are nice however a little on the pricey side, but the lunar bar has fabulous cocktails.
We had a large family holiday of ten of us, four sets of couples one with two young children, and all found that the hotel and the location caters for all ages, tastes, and whether you want a relaxing or crazy time Phuket is the place for you. I strongly recommend this hotel!
