Actually we should have known when we checked in. The room we were initially shown (a 2 bedroom Angsana suite) smelt like an ashtray and was very poky and dark. We were shown another suite, but it had the same configuration and did not smell much better. After reviewing a few more rooms we downgraded to an ocean-view premier room 2230 (very good newly renovated room) with a connecting regular room.

The problem with this hotel is that they have partially renovated, but have left out major areas such as the the corridors and doors and windows (which have large gaps allowing bugs to enter the rooms.)

The kids club is very large, and definitely a highlight of this hotel.

Swimming pool is a long meandering connection between 3 large pools, but lacks the usual gimmicks such as slides etc.

The beach club XANA is by far and away the best part of this hotel, clearly out soured to Attica a well known Singapore club operator.

Now that I have gone through the positives of the hotel, lets run through a few of the negatives.

Breakfast at this hotel is pathetic. 5 star hotels in Thailand set a global standard on what breakfast buffets can be. This hotel has not only let the side down, it is abysmal how poor the quality and selections actually are. Villa and Suite guests have a separate breakfast which is better, as it is a la carte.

The service is well below what you would consider 5 star. When I questioned raw seafood that had been left in the sun for over 25 minutes the restaurant staff said it would be "fine for the Chinese". The room attendant realized we could speak Thai and became very casual asking if he could go and have dinner and come back later to clean the room (halfway through cleaning) and also if we really needed ice as it was far for him!!!! Room service said that food would take 40 minutes as it was a very big order. ( 2 bowls of noodles and some chicken) We ended up getting this from the beach shack outside in 10 minutes.

The rooms are full of bugs and because of the lagoon mosquitos or what the manager claimed were not mosquitos but some type of water fly. These were all over the corridors outside the room (in their hundreds lined up on walls and ceilings. We asked for tho to be cleaned 6 times during the course of a day as they were not there the day we checked in, but there was no response.
When someone called my wife from guest relations to ask about our stay and she told the person she was very disappointed and upset, the caller laughed and said that was very nice.

When we checked out early after 2 days of this unhygienic and unclean hotel the manager tried to explain this was the tropics. When we told him in Thai that we had visited Phuket over 20 times and this was the worst experience we had had he said that it was not a common problem and most people seems happy. I wanted to point out that this was probably because most of the hotel is occupied by tour groups who fight to get to the buffet breakfast as if the food was going to run out and were probably happy to be in a hotel at all.

I know Angsana and Banyan Tree have made clear their intent to focus on the China market going forward, and I am glad that after two days in this hotel I can make clear that I will focus on not staying in any of their properties in the future.

Room tip: Spend all day at the beach club XANA

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to provide your detailed feedback in regards to your recent stay with us and for sharing both the positives as well as the areas that you felt required improvement, the latter being crucial to us in our endeavours to constantly upgrade and improve our products and services.
I understand that you had required a change from the category you originally booked as it was located outside our main resort, and despite the challenges of trying to provide another option during a period of very high occupancy, I am glad that our team were able to provide you rooms that were in line with your expectations and with a view of the ocean as well.
I am sorry that the water insects, that make their home in the lagoon during the rainy season, had such an impact on your stay and we are investigating why the situation was so severe in your particular room, as they are in fact normally only found in public areas and then again in lesser numbers.
Delivery times for room service meals do depend on the occupancy and demand, as is the case with most resorts. I am sorry we were not able to meet your expectations in this regard, but am glad to read that our staff did indicate the waiting time from the onset and that you were able to avail of the local restaurants on the beach to minimise any inconvenience.
The hotel does, as you pointed out, provide two options for breakfast, and that guests staying in our suites and lofts can avail of a more intimate a la carte breakfast at Bodega, though we do provide an extensive buffet breakfast at Marketplace, which though at times busy, has often been indicated in many reviews as the highlight of guests’ stay. Our peak periods are from 9:00 – 10:30 perhaps in part due to the visit of “Lucky”, our resident baby elephant, but we do also provided an extended resort breakfast hour until 11:00 am to allow guests to enjoy this service after the main rush.
The hotel does have a higher than normal ratio of mainland Chinese guests at this time of the year, a trend that is quite common across all hotels in Phuket during this season, but I am disappointed to read that they had a profoundly adverse impact on your holiday.
In closing I wish to once again extend our sincere apologies for not being able to exceed your expectations as we would have hoped, and assure you that your comments have been shared with the entire team and we look forward to sharing with you, the many improvements we have made on a future stay.
Best regards
Jerry J. John
General Manager

We stayed in one of the 4 bedroom pool villas right on the Laguna Golf Course for a week, which was perfect for our two families with young kids (6 years). The villa has a very large private pool as well as a sala (day bed) and plenty of garden/deck space with sun loungers and a dining table.

The bedrooms are spacious and the master has an en-suite bathroom with bath and separate shower. The other 2 upstairs bedrooms share a bathroom and the downstairs bedroom has a bathroom on the ground floor as well. The kitchen is fully equipped as is the office, complete with printer and stationary.

Although the villa we stayed in hasn't been renovated as yet it was in good condition, just some pieces, including the TVs, are slightly dated. The only thing we missed and what would have been handy to have, is a washing machine, especially for longer stays with small children, but there are cheap and cheerful laundry places nearby so it wasn't a problem at all. We had complimentary WIFI which was easy to use and reliable. The villa has no sound system or Ipod dock which would have been nice.

The Angsana resort is part of the larger Laguna development which has a number of other hotels including the Banyan Tree and the Dusit and its very well laid out with lots of facilities, greenery and restaurants across the development, all of which you can use and sign charges for back to your room which is very practical. There really is no reason to leave the resort if you don't want to, as you literally have everything from pools, beach, water sports, restaurants, golf, tennis, beach club, spa, etc. right at your door step. If you like to stay further away from the busy areas in Phuket such as Patong, then Laguna is perfect and very quiet and relaxed. The drive to Patong is about 20-25 minutes or so, which we did one evening.

Many areas of the hotel have been renovated since Angsana took over from Sheraton and these look great. The recently opened Xana Beach Club is really nice and definitely not to be missed when you're in Laguna; we enjoyed quite a few afternoons, sunset drinks and dinners here with the kids, who were very welcome everywhere around the resort.

We had bikes by the house which was great and very handy to get around, but shuttles and ferries run every few minutes on a timetable to take you to other parts of the resort as well. There are complimentary water sport activities too, including sailing and kayaking.

The Treehouse Kids Club was a hit with our 6-year olds, its definitely one of the nicest kids clubs we have seen with a good variety of activities and friendly staff. Lucky the resident elephant visits the resort twice a day as well, during breakfast and around 3pm at the Kids Club, which was another highlight for the little ones.

Breakfast gets busy at peak time, but the buffet has a large variety of hot and cold dishes and was replenished well throughout the service. I think we tried just about every restaurant within the resort as well as room service at the house for the kids, which was quick and efficient and a good alternative to dining out.

The pools at the Angsana hotel are very large and you can practically swim around the entire pool area, which is unusual and therefore really nice. Our kids couldn't get enough of the water and splashed around for hours every day. We also used the gym and tennis court and enjoyed one of the Zumba dance classes the resort has on the schedule in its studio along with yoga and pilates classes several times a week.

We booked a day trip to Phi Phi island through the resort which was very well organized including a nice lunch from the local deli. The boat and staff were knowledgeable and friendly and the speed boat was much nicer and more luxurious than some of the other local tours we saw around that day.

Angsana Laguna is a great family getaway and ideal for younger children. If you're looking for a honeymoon resort, this is not the place, but we would definitely come back if we were to return to Phuket with our family.

Room tip: For us the option to rent a house inside a resort is perfect. it gives you the space, facilities and amenities you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay with children, whilst you have access to all the facilities of the resort right at your door step.
