My wife and I stayed here for four nights. Here's the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Excellent breakfast with endless options.
Huge gardens, pools, and grounds which made for a nice mile running course.
Decent fitness equipment.
Overall good service.
Met a nice tour operator by chance and he recommended great trips (reviewed separately see Adaman Sea Kayak).
Wi fi is not included. It's free in the lobby but depending on your room that can be quite far away.
Although the room was nice, it was nothing memorable.
Far from the airport.
Not a knock on the hotel, but all of Phuket was a bit less interesting than I had hoped.
We were encouraged to upgrade to a different room that would give us a "higher floor" that was "recently renovated." We initially decided against it and went to our room. But once inside we felt it was small so we went back to the desk and took the offer. The new room was identical, and on a lower floor, but closer to the ocean. Really? Sure it was only $30 more a night but the sales pitch was false.
