Never stayed there, being local, but I pop down there often as its one of the best sports bars in Phuket. Numerous screens show all types of sport, with two projector TVs. My beers are always very cold and the food delicious. Excellent bar and menu selections. The staff are very friendly and Maurice and Tiger always seem to be around to keep things friendly and efficient.
I recall one day when there was a false tsunami scare and every restaurant in Kata and Karon had closed because the staff had fled. But not O'Tool's, They were still serving with Maurice working the kitchen.
I also like to read the English papers which they get daily.
