“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

We had a lovely stay at The Access Hotel for Christmas and New Year. The Staff were always very helpful and friendly. We loved the direct access to the pool and the quiet location. We found the spa very nice although expensive. The New Year's dinner was superb.

Beautiful venue especially if you have your own pool/spa. This was a relaxing and friendly environment. Room service Impeccable & food wonderful. We were there on New Year's Eve and it was spectacular. A huge buffet & show about history of Thailand. Fireworks were bright & the beautiful lanterns floating around in the sky breathtaking.

Room Tip: Get your own pool/spa

we stayed in access jan 2011 and thoroughly enjoyed the stay staff were polite but sometimes strained to understand my Australian accent. Room was great we were upgraded to one with lap and spa pool and we also got a cultural show bottle of wine and a huge dinner which had a full pig on spit and lots of other foods. there are bars nearby and massages as well. 7/11 is just on corner so snacks and alchohol was not a problem. we had no problems with the tours and they can be arranged there. Will go back again if possible.

The staff were so polite and always greeted us with a smile- which is one of the qualities I look for in great service.

The rooms clean, tidy and refreshing. Perhaps the best part was pool access.

The bed was great!

Breakfast was awesome, if you like to eat a lot in the morning you'll not be disappointed! There is an egg station which is was super exciting.

The restaurant was quite good also- however expect to pay a little more for the food- being that it is more 'convenient'

The hotel was perfect- my only criticism would be location- I hated driving up and down the range from Patong to Karon beach, but that is because I got sick almost everyday. If you are good with windy roads and taxi trips then this is the perfect place! You won't hear any loud partying or trucks and cars

Room Tip: We chose the cheapest room and it was still amazing!

My memory of Karon Beach, having stayed at both Patong & Kata Beach post tsunmai was a destination somewhere in between Patong's crazy hustle and Kata's more laidback feel. We thought it would be a nice combination and chose to spend 6 nites at Access Resorts & Villas ... looked good on the web, 4 stars, pool access (which has become the big & latest attraction for my lovely wife).
Our welcome was warm and friendly and very quickly we were taken to our room through well maintained gardens and lawns.
We stayed in the green wing. Our pool access room was a good size, clean, and well appointed which opened up onto a pool so clear that at times you could be fooled into thinking there was no water in it.
The staff are very friendly and it is clear they take pride in their work and the property in general. The management are obviously animal friendly (which is nice) with small families of wild but happy cats around the place which is unusual for Asia.
For us what reduces this resort to a 3 Star was the breakfasts which we thought were only average, our room while nice received no sun so we had to sit away from the room to enjoy it, the gym is very basic, and the location which sadly is probably in the most ordinary part of Karon and a good 10 minute walk to the beach and restaurants.
The place just lacked a bit of atmosphere we thought.
Good place if you just want to sit by the pool and read a book for a few days but not really why you go to Phuket.
Karon Beach is sort of trapped in the middle between what Patong and Kata can provide, really not accomplishing either that well.
Access are trying really hard and doing a lot very well but location lets them down and for similar money I think there are better options close by.
