We booked this hotel as a package deal with our flights from SA, what a great hotel. Transfers were included from the airport, what a relief we didn't have to worry about that. When we checked in we were informed we were being given an upgrade, the room we had overlooked the pool. Large spacious rooms. The breakfast buffet was really great and the staff fantastic. We even had dinner one night at the hotel restaurant on the beach front, food was great and prices reasonable compared to some of the other restaurants on the beach front. Great location just off the beach. Only issue I had was that their internet was quite expensive to have in the room but we were able to use the free internet by the reception, probably a good thing or I would have been working on my holiday :-)

Just got back from staying here for 12 days, we arrived mid morning and room was ready for us within 10minutes. We had a room in the Silo wing - the room and bathroom were big and clean and serviced daily. Breakfast buffet catered for all tastes - staff very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is close to the beach, within walking distances to markets and restaurants. Tuk tuk's are readily available on the street but if you book a taxi via the hotel it will cost you 50THB less. Everything you need for a relaxing holiday is here and nothing is too much trouble to organise, will definitely go back

This was my first trip to Phuket and staying at the old phuket resort made it a awesome and memorable experience. when we arrived we were informed that we had been upgraded to a better room. The room was awesome. the location of the hotel was also great, with an abundance of restaurants and massage parlours on the resorts doorstep.
i would advise that people book at the new wing and get the pool access room.
Taxi services are located in the resort as well as tour information and booking.

Room Tip: The pool accesss room on the new wing is the best.

Just come back from spending 9 nights at The Old Phuket in Karon. We arrived at around 9.30pm Check In was quick and easy. We stayed in the Serene Wing, the room and bathroom were big and clean on our arrival. Breakfast was sufficient, pool was large staff friendly. The hotel itself is in an excellent position it's close to restaurants, markets, taxis and tuk tuks. Check Out, again quick and easy. The only downside is you have to pay for WiFi in your room, but it's free in the lobby. All in all we had an enjoyable stay and would go back again.

Visited for 8 nights in April 2014. This is our third visit to this hotel and found it as good as ever. We stay in the Pool Access Rooms and would highly recommend these rooms. The staff are very friendly and accommodating.

I have read reviews where comments were made to the contrary. However I have found here as anywhere in Thailand if you smile at the people they will always smile back. I believe you get what you give.

So a happy outlook will always evoke a happy result from the staff.

The breakfast is good and the location is excellent.

Room Tip: Highly recommend the pool access rooms.

This hotel is great if you are Russian. We stayed in a private Jacuzzi room which was fine but far away from any pools - the main pool was a good walk away and every time we tried to get a sun lounge it was either full or some people around were smoking despite the signs saying No smoking around pool - staff gave the Russians ash trays???? The pool on the roof was so small that you could not get into it or a sun lounge. Breakfast was really not brilliant but acceptable - staff at front desk could not understand English very well - the real thing is that they seemed to cater for the Russians and not anyone else. Always had to get a cab to go anywhere. Would not recommend it.
