On arrival we received a warm and friendly welcome from the Reception team in an air conditioned room. This was followed by an escorted trip to our room which had been prepared to our complete satisfaction - clean and all services working. The view from our balcony was truly stunning - this vista looked over the hotel pools and onto Karon beach. The cascading waves added to the ambiance.
The breakfast buffet could not be faulted and the restaurant in the evenings provided a very good range of local and international treats. These were served by friendly staff. The cost of food is a tad cheaper at adjacent restaurants but the quality and taste of the food served to us at the hotel negated the need to look outside the hotel. The food was quite yummy and the portions more than adequate.
Karon beach is over a mile long and ideal for pleasant strolls. An additional bonus was watching kingfishers hunt the numerous small sand crabs. If you like swimming then be warned that Karon Beach is 'Red Flagged' in the low season (May to October) as a consequence of rip currents.
Whilst in Phuket we booked a couple of tours and utilised an adjacent tour company (the hotel desk was quite expensive) and would recommend the company we used - 'Trip For Life Travel'. The Managing Director, Preeda Rattanaburi, was very helpful as well as proving ourselves a good deal.
The only downside of the stay was that our sheets were not changed daily - something I would personally expect in a hot climate.
