The first thing we, that is my husband and daughter noticed was the pristine beach, and all to yourself. The property is also wonderful. Our room was facing the pool and we also could get a glimpse of the beach. The staff were also very courteous and very helpful in organising our day tours. Being pure vegetarians, we had limited choice of dishes. Even then we did not starve and managed to get something of our choice. The breakfast spread was also wide and got to eat a variety of fruits. On the whole the stay was a memorable one.

Room Tip: to my knowledge all the rooms face the beach and poolside. We were staying on the first floor which...

Amazing place for couples and families. The kids club is by far one of the best I have ever seen! The activities offered by the hotel are amazing and even have a baby elephant walking around the grounds. We stayed last year, but my kids still talk about that stay. The employees were great and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. The spa was great and the food was great. Definently book a higher floor room facing the ocean. It is worth it.

Room Tip: Again, the ocean view rooms are worth the extra money.

We are heading back in two weeks time to the most amazing place. This will be our fourth or fifth stay here and we recommend it to all our friends. The staff are incredible . If people don't like it I really don't think much in life will make them happy. We are very excited to be returning once again. I'm not sure what it be be like with one of the pools closed and the main restaurant closed but I'm confidant it won't interfere with our stay.

Front Desk was extremely helpful! They made an "okay" hotel extra special. They helped us immensely as we were scammed by some locals and they are accommodating.

The rooms had quite a bit of mold in them which caused a big problem for my mother who is very allergic. The hotel is quite old, hence the renovations, but it is still nice.

The location is good, just outside Patong Beach area and the hotel has a private beach which is very nice.

Downtown Phuket isn't so much of a "family" destination and would not recommend it to any family vacations. The spa's are amazing and definitely recommend them.

What looked like a perfect location to celebrate my 1st Marriage Anniversary,  was just a good location n nothing more.   
   There was a constant foul sea food smell (I love seafood) coming fr om somewhere at the doorside of our Deluxe Sea View room.    
The furniture had small termite like ants all over.
Our stay included Breakfast but my wife who is a vegetarian did not hve any vegetarian option. One day there wasn't even Chicken/Lamb options and even I ran out of options as I don't eat Pork/Beef.  
We had been given an Special Anniversary cake (arranged only after special requests from my Tour company in India) but it was a big mistake to eat that cake. I have never seen such substandard food at a place which demands such prices.   
The staff though was helpful & courteous.   
  I went to Sheraton - Krabi from here (again a Starwoods Hotel) but everything there was perfect!

Dear 'jaysshj'

I am sorry to learn that your experience at the resort did not meet your expectations - more so during this special occasion. I have shared your concern with what you found to be a limited selection of vegetarian dishes. We will review this and will certainly consider expanding this offering in our breakfast buffet. We do have more selection of vegetarian and chicken dishes in our dining venues' lunch, dinner, and in-room dining menus. I am sorry if we did not mention this at the time. It's great to know that you enjoyed your stay at Sheraton Krabi. We wish you pleasant journeys.

Kind regards,

the hotel is under renovation, but let this not put you off. learn from these guys how to plan renovations in a running hotel. from the pre arrival pdf mails to arrival experience. wow. everything was a clockwork.
the breakfast food was amazing. "dont be a typical indian, expecting aloo jeera in lucerne".
when in thailand enjoy asian food.
they have all restaurants open and food was impressive.

kudos to the associates for taking care of guests sometimes even without a manager. great stuff.

Everything is good in this resort: rooms (may be a little noisy), restaurants, staff, always kind and avalaible, but the best of the hotel is its fantastic sandy private beach over a fantastic and warm Andaman sea. You are only 5 km far from the night life of Patong, only 5 minutes with the hotel shuttle or a tuk tuk. May be the hotel is too big with its 450 rooms and more, but it's well organized.
2 remarks: at Thai buffet the traditional thai soup "tom yang kung" was very bad; as platinum member I was allocated in one of the few rooms mountain view (but that is just a personal issue that doesn't affect my good opinion about the resort).

Room Tip: rooms with sea view

Many thanks for your feedback. We are happy to learn that you had a pleasant stay. It's great that you enjoyed the hotel's facilities and service. Thank you for highlighting the resort's convenient location - as you correctly mentioned - which is only 5 kms from Patong and actually just the same distance from Karon, Phuket's other popular tourist district. I am happy to acknowledge your appreciation of our dining venues and that you particularly liked the Tom Yum Gung we offer- no doubt amongst the most popular dishes in Thai cuisine. We hope you'll stay with us again on your return to Phuket. Happy travels.
