“Our 2nd time and not the last”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

One of the best things we ever did was buy 2 weeks of Marriott timeshare. We have been all over the world using it. The Marriott Phuket beach club which is joined to the JW Marriott hotel is one of the best.( Don't go to the other resort it is not as good) We exchanged our week in Europe and got everything we could ever want. We paid for the business class flights with our marriott reward points, We had the resort collect us from the airport, we got the apartment near the north pool we requested ( no kids in this pool most of the time) and we had a wonderful time. The buffet breakfast at the JW Marriott is fab, as long as you go hungry and stay a while and eat plenty then it is value for money. ALL the restaurants were wonderful ( we only went out to eat twice as the food is so good on site) The people who moan at the prices of the convenience store on site, I say "get a cab and go off site to the local supermarket" for me I LOVE the "convenience" of it and I am happy to pay the price. Our vacations are precious to us so we like to have everything, easy, convenient , top of the range, and the best service. As Marriott timeshare owners we expect it and get it every time. I have only 2 issues. The first is that none of the restaurants seem to have their own toilets, you have to leave the restaurant and go to the toilet. If you are eating at the sushi restaurant you have to climb the stairs to find your nearest one. 2nd we had a very very late flight on our departure. I know we can pack our stuff and use the resort all day and get changed in the gyms changing rooms BUT that is not us...... We wanted to stay in our room for half a day more...... we were expecting to pay if the resort was not fully booked etc etc but we were a little miffed that in the JW hotel you can pay for a half day extension but at the resort you have to pay for a full extra night !! I think this is a little greedy and could so easily be implemented...... if they have availability then half a day extra charge is fair. If you have not been to this resort GO, if you are wanting this 5 star type of vacation for the rest of your lives then believe what the timeshare sales men tells you......... it works just like they say it will.

Room Tip: North pool blocks are as far away from the main building as you can get, so it is a bit of a walk to...

We were 5 adults and a kid with some old people in the group. The flat was luxurious, two bedrooms and a big drawing cum kitchen with a sofa cum bed. The beds are very comfortable and also the bathrooms very big / round bath tub a hit with kids. The kitchen was useful for cooking a little. The swimming pool and kids room is very good too.

The rack rate is $500 per night and the room quality is worth it. The only question is you have to have a referral from a good friend or buy the expensive Marriott Holiday plan.

The only downside is that this is not next to the sea (but a 5min hotel buggy ride away) or the main part of Phuket where most hotels are.

Our recent move to KL required a much needed getaway. Friends gifted us a weekend in their timeshare at Marriott. We went for my daughter's birthday weekend. Unfortunately the entire time, it rained (and funny that it stayed sunny in KL), but we still had a great time.
Our outings to nearby attractions were cancelled due to the weather but the grounds afforded my kids lots of activities in the kids club and we braved the pools and beach despite a little bit of a drizzle.
They were looking forward to seeing the elephant but unfortunately it is only hired during the summer months.
The restaurants were all great with lots of variety and my daughter had a cake brought out on the night of her birthday.
The sales presentation wasn't too intimidating or pressuring. We still cannot decide if we will sign up because our vacations are more on the less extravagant side and this is out of our budget, but will be visiting again when the weather is a bit nicer during the year, perhaps summer so the kids can see the elephant.

This is the first time we were allocated the Mai khao rooms. In the past, we had always used the blocks adjourning the JW Marriott, so we were quite disappointed by the lobby area of the Mai khao - none of the grandiose and expanse of space like the JW which also receives the beach club wing. The rooms were just as good as the beach club wing, so no complains about that, but the day next, we were told we could not use the JW facilities except restaurants. The Mai khao pool was small and bare, with none of the little treats accorded at the JW side. The Mai khao side also does not have a beach front! So, if you are told you pay for the luxury of JW but get a two bedroom suite for the Same price, don't be kidded by it.

Thank you for visiting Marriott's Phuket Beach Club. The resort itself is not a part of the JW Marriott and offers a different experience for guests to enjoy. We apologize if there was confusion regarding the two resorts and hope you will return to either Marriott property on your future travels

My wife and me just spent our usual 4 holidays in this faboulus resort, may be the best Marriott Vacation Club, where apartments, service and cleaning are at the top.
This year we only noted some lowering in standard as not working fountain in our preferred pool, no towels service to the sunbeds, only basic gardening.
From december all pools are smoke-free: bad for me, may be excellent for others.
Staff is always wonderful, Cucina Italian restaurant, now open for lunch too, very good. To try: Caesar salad Italian style, Carpaccio, Tiramisù and an unbelievable Pizza (the classic Margherita is my preferred).

We just had our annual family holiday at Marriott Phuket Beach Club in early December 2013. Another perfect holiday achieved. Despite the age of the hotel,over 10 years old. The hotel is well maintained and keep up to date. Every time we visited, we always saw improvement for the better. The location is an hour drive from Patong but that also made the resort exclusive with less crowded beach. There are at least 7 restaurants in the resort and more from nearby resorts and shopping area. However, with 10 days staying each time, we are still happy with what avail.

There are plenty of children activities available for kids at various ages. They had just renovated the kids club and it is definitely a good improvement. Sea sports activities are also available with very knowledgable staffs. Those that prefer self pampering, besides the hotel spa, there are also beach Thai massage avail and relatively good deal.

The two bedrooms apartment made it even easier to have a long holiday in Phuket. The apartment is a good size with living room, dining room and balcony. Our children love the master bathroom bathtub which is enormous. The only downside was the master bed was bit too soft for our preference.

Overall, we are all looking forward to next year holiday to "the best hotel ever" (quoted one of our sons comment).

Room Tip: Best time to visit to enjoy sea sport activities is during high season, starting nov 1 yearly to aro...

I've been to Marriott's Phuket Beach Club for roughly 8 times, each time for one full week. This April 2014, I will again re-visit this impeccable place. With Turtle Village right around the corner, shopping and relaxing is so much easier. Me and my family usually never stay at the same hotel more than twice, but Marriott's Phuket Beach Club is special. With 3 different beautiful swimming pools to choose from, we have a hard time picking which one to swim in each day. Nevertheless, all 3 leaves such unforgetable memories. All staff are friendly and warm, while the sales are very generous. Whenever we re-visit, we tend to see some old faces (staffs) and guess what, they remember us! Greeting us with a warm and personal smile, bringing us welcome drinks, etc. makes our vacation the best out of best. Located just beside the beach, we can do our morning beach jogs and before we even know it, we are right in front of other hotels! (such as the Rennaissance) Once you get back to the hotel room, you can cook your own dishes. Where to get materials? Tesco Lotus, a local gourmet market is only about 15 minutes (drive) from the hotel. If you wish to go to Central (department store), it is rougly 30 minutes drive from the hotel. Where to put your kids when you want to relax? Kids club! Full of activities and cooking experiences, while they're supervised at all times! Don't worry, they won't ever get bored in Kids Club, I promise. I highly highly reccomend this ravishing beach club. See you soon, Phuket Beach Club!

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors give a much nicer view and also more peaceful. However, if you are the typ...
