Wow. This place is impressive. Maybe because they've just been recently renovated.
I travelled during Songkran 2014. There are two of us with an infant 20-month-old in tow.
Here's my take. The room is spacious enough and there is an awesome bathtub. (This feature is an added plus for after a long day out at the beach).
The swimming pool is not huge for laps but big enough to fit all hotel guests during Songkran (everyone dived in).
Most importantly it is clean. The pool, rooms, toilet and hotel on the overall.
Ok, let's talk about it's location. No, it is not beachfront however a 15mins walk, will get you to Karon beach. On the second and third day, the 15mins walk seemed shorter.
There are plenty of restaurants to the right and left of the hotel so food is not an issue but most days, we ate at the hotel as they were delicious enough.
The staff were friendly and helpful and I must say this. After staying at this hotel for 3 nights we went to stay at a highly acclaimed 5 star resort which shall remain un-named to treat ourselves but in comparison the staff at Phulin Resort were so much more welcoming. So when I say friendly and helpful, I really mean 'friendly and helpful'.
Oh and a little hint: You could walk through some hotel establishments as a short cut to the beach. We made plenty shortcuts walking through 'The Old Phuket' hotel.
