We were visting Phuket for a friends wedding, due to the short time scales, we needed to be in Bang Tao Bay and the Allamanda is the cheapest of the hotels on the Laguna complex. You are paying for location above all.
The suites are plenty spacious and I can see the appeal to families, however, I found the room a little "tired" and "tatty", particularly in the bathroom and kitchen. We had a little ant problem, nothing major but if you had children, not great.
The communal areas were fine and the pools lovely. Breakfast was good, if a little pricy at 570Baht. I would recommend heading to the beach for dinner, getting the shuttle ferry across and then walk back through the Sheraton.
If you have time, shop around for trips as I'm sure they were overpriced from the hotel.. Own transport would be helpful as I felt alot of money was spent on taxis!
Staff were friendly (as is the Thai way after all), howver I would say that the Allamanda is definately the "poor relation" compared to the other hotels in the Laguna complax but then you get what you pay for!
PS - For diving, I recommend South Siam Divers who can be boked through Phuket Travel. 3 dives, all equipment, food and transfer for approx £45.00 - bargain!
