Secret Cliff Resort
Ranked #110 of 136 Hotels in Karon
Reviewed April 8, 2012

We stayed at the Secret Cliff for our 3 last nights on our journey. We had a nice room with somewhat hidden view (lots of trees covering). The hotel area is really hilly so it is definitely not recommended for the disabled. For being quite a big resort the pool is much undersized. We learned that we could use a pool at another resort across the street but we never did. we had some great Italian food at the restaurant beside the road although it was a bit noisy to eat there with all the traffic passing. The hotel is situated on top of the Karon Cliff right in between of Karon and Patong and have free shuttle to both areas. But now to the best thing of all, the spa. It is really clean and nicely furnished and the staff is friendly and very skilled. Try it out!
If you go to Patong, skip the shopping down at the beach road and go to the OTOP market situated at the Hard Rock Café. Much calmer, not so pricy. But still very pushy sales persons :(

Very nicely managed garden, fair restaurant, best cliff view to have a budget drink or lunch. pool is small, nice to have secret, but too lay back for young people. get a motor bike to go around . room was rejected by my wife, toilet was 1 star. okey for matured easy going people. definitely not up to 4 stars. good bargain in low season.

We checked out one of the dining guides we grabbed from somewhere and just picked a restaurant. This one looked good, lovely location. Was a winner, it was a very quiet day for the staff, so we had brilliant service. The food was great, good prices. Would be a lovely location for a wedding or gathering of groups. The resort looked lovely would even concider staying here.
Was a little difficult to get a cab but no biggy. We would go back again.

This was the first hotel of our trip, we booked it for 2 nights. Only good thing was, that in the room were extra towels and beach bag.But then it started.
On the first day I went to reception and told that our toilet isn´t working. I was there also in the next morning, problem stayed, next evening-twice. Every time they said that they will be there and the problem will be fixed.
On the second day our room wasn´t also cleaned.
On the final day the manager was there, I asked her to come and see that the problem stays, but she refused. She just stood there at the reception looked me into the eye and sayd: "we have cleaned your room every day and we fixed the toilet." I nicely asked her again to come to my room and see, but like I said, she refused.
I didn´t want to pay full price of this low quality room and service. Manager refused to make any discount and she threatened to call the police.
I've never stayed at such a horrible hotel and I don´t recommend it to anyone!

My Husband and I spent about 5 days of our honeymoon in Phuket (Feb 2012) and we have had already made our reservations back in September. The place is very beautiful and most romantic. The hotel is so clean and the service is great. The room was spacious, breakfast buffet was good and the views from the breakfast area is AMAZING facing Karon Beach.
The swimming pool is small but to die for..make sure to watch the sun sit =)
Some Observations: 1- If you need to arrange for air port pick up, please do that early because they do not check their emails much!! however, for us it turned out that the Taxi we hired from the Air port Taxi Services Desk was a bit cheaper (MAKE SURE IT IS THE TAXI SERVICE DESK infront of the airport and not the individual husslers and not the ones inside the airport)
2- The food at the hotel's restaurant is expensive but at the COCO Pizza place is cheaper! If you order room serivce the meals are even cheaper which we could not get why!!
3- Since the hotel is far from the beach, the hotel has two free shuttles that leave at 10 am and 11 am one to Karon Beach and one to Patong Beach and back.

All in all great and memorable experience. ENJOY

Room Tip: Area is hilly, if you are not fit you may want to ask for closer room to reception area although I b...

We spent 3 nights at the beginning of March in this very luxury and cosy hotel. We had deluxe room seaview, it was very spacy room, clean with very nice seaview. I can recommend this hotel to couples, who are looking for privacy and romantic moments. As the hotel has no beach it doesn´t mind, they will take you to Karon or Patong every day for free. Very friendly staff. Don´t forget to try their delicious pizza at Coco pizza!!! And have your breakfast on the restaurant terrace with wonderful view on Karon beach. Thank you very much for this very nice experience! Renata and Michal

Located 5 minutes using motorbike from Patong, great location, nice bathroom, nice bed, and nice view.
If you want to have ocean view, make sure you booked it first. Due only 6 or 8 rooms with ocean view.
Nice breakfast view, to ocean and Big Budha in the mountain.
We rent a motorbike to travel around Phuket, but if you have fund, u can choose tuk tuk. Better than tuk tuk we can rent a car, with driver and gas, it's cost 500 bath for 6 hours.
We have great time when we are there
