“Great getaway for family fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

After reading some of the earlier reviews of this resort, esp regarding the rooms and food, I was hesitant to book, however I'm so glad we did. We had an excellent experience, a truly all-inclusive resort, great staff, great fun. The airport pick up was nice, and it saved the hassle of a taxi. The room was perfectly fine, not fancy but very clean and very well maintained for a beach resort. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, and you really get a feeling of space, unencumbered and uncrowded allowing you to relax even as you make the walk from your room to the main part of the resort with the pool, bar, restaurant, etc.

Our daughter was in the Petit Club for our entire stay (5 days). She had a wonderful time and was busy throughout the day, giving us some space to relax and do other things. The Petit Club GOs were outstanding with the kids, engaging them with enormous enthusiasm. They did a fantastic job. We'd pick her up at the end of the day and usually went to the beach for the last hour of daylight as the Petit Club only uses a dedicated kids' pool, no beach time.

The food could be better, however, I understand the challenge faced by the chef, who was preparing meals for a very diverse clientele. During our visit the guests were approx 80% Asian, concentrated among Chinese, Japanese and Koreans, and everyone likes their national dishes. The buffet restaurant had food stations providing specialties from each of these countries as well Thai and western food, in addition to a non-stop ice cream station with cones and sundaes as well as other desserts and fruits. The restaurant staff were very accommodating to the kids, and were always able to locate a high chair or lend other assistance, while also serving up the house wine or draft beer for the adults. It does get a bit crazy in the restaurant but it's a family resort so it comes with the territory.

After dinner there is a show put on by the GOs which is always good fun. The bar is open from morning til late, and while it is free flowing, I never saw anyone become unruly or get out of hand.

In addition to the beach, there is a variety of activities for everyone (including lessons) in golf (incl 9 hole pitch 'n put), tennis, archery, badminton, volleyball, etc and the usual collection of pool games. There is also a snorkeling trip (inclusive) which involves a 30-40 min boat trip to a reef, which is great fun but leaves only about 40 mins for actual snorkeling.

Altogether, we had an outstanding time and met some really interesting people (and their kids) and did a lot of fun activities. My hat is off to the GOs and to the mgmt for making this a great experience for a multinational clientele. I should mention also that the nationalities of the GOs also match those of many guests so everyone is able to communicate and enjoy the resort in their own language.

Thank you Clubmed Phuket for the most amazing wedding, honeymoon and family holiday. Club Med Phuket is break taking and gorgeous, it really is paradise. Our trip to Phi-Phi Island was amazing, phenomenal, out of this world, and the place of pure tranquillity, calmness and happiness. The people at Club Med were amazing, extremely friendly, the service is top class, they are humble, respectful, and gave us all an amazing time, we miss you all so much. The wedding was arranged to perfection by Pen (Club Med Affairs), it was a dream come true. The photography was stunning and was done by Club Med Lighthouse Photography. The food and cuisine at Club Med was amazing every single day, the variety was unbelievable, and every meal was delicious, I really miss the food there. The evening entertainment every night was amazing. A special Thank you to Pen, Lighthouse Photography, Siddhardht (Restaurant Manager), Maggie, Paulo, Sora, Ensley, Pew, Brendan, Guy, Prakash, Clara, Budgu, Olivier and the entire Club Med Phuket crew, for an amazing holiday, we will always remember you all and we will return to Club Med Phuket soon. It was the best holiday ever, my family and I were truly blessed to have experienced a break taking and gorgeous place as Club Med Phuket and the staff.

Thank you, God Bless and lots of love.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great and there are no noisy areas close to rooms.

The teens club in Club Med was really nice. I had lots of fun and met a few people that I won't ever forget. The g.o.'s were really chilled, happy at all times. All the people just seem really friendly. I loved the atmosphere. Some of the shows at night weren't that interesting. But the fireworks with music, the disco club at night was really really nice. I had my birthday celebrated there. Had a few tries on the flying trapeze. It was just an unforgettable experience that's really memorable.
But one thing, the service arent to the top. Also WI-FI there sucks. Still has to improve. But other than that it was awesome.

Our families first o/s holiday together very picky kids and they loved the resort,food and staff... I was worried as 2 of them don't eat Asian food but the choices were unbelievable both in the restaurant and buffet.the only time we got sick was on the night we went to Patong for dinner
The rooms were in need of an update but very clean And cleaned every morning as soon as we left for breaky! As it was my husband and my 3rd trip to Thailand we wanted a all inc holiday with the kids and when traveling with our kids we will only stay club med from now on!!! We loved it soo much for those 10 nights we came home and booked Bali in Nov! Always something on in the bar every night shows were amazing kids club team were exellent and my 11yr old son loved the golf staff. Highly reccomend

this Club Med caters to children and adults alike. there are shows every night and if you have children its the ClubMed to be. the rooms are great and the facilities are also great. the club's GO's never fail to amuse you and will cater to your every needs. the only bad experience in this Club Med is the food. not as good as Club Med Bali but still nice enough.

WoW What surprise stayed for a week in July and had a fab time. Had a room up grade to give us some more space and weel worth the extra $. Big hotel but our room was close to the enterance and beach access.

Best thing is the adult area with its own pool and cabarnas (called ZEN) Sent most of the week there and treated like a king and queen.

Food outstanding not to mention the free bar.

Room Tip: Book your day trips outside this resort and save big time.
