Booked this hotel for one night on our arrival in Phuket - glad it wasn't for longer. Booked it on the basis of reviews on trip advisor. We had sent an e-mail the morning before we travelled to see if we could get an airport pick-up: on arrival we were told by the receptionist that she had only just read the mail. To be honest it wasn't a big deal but it kind of indicated how the rest of the stay was going to go! Checked in easily but then had to drag our own heavy cases up a flight of stairs as she was the only staff member around. Room was run down and musty and tv had no remote control. No explanation from staff member as to where anything was or how things worked. Everything was switched off or plugged out i.e. fridge, air conditioning. However bed linen was clean. Lovely location right on the beach. Hotel restaurant which everyone had been raving about wasn't open - no explanation for this - just wasn't open (seems they may have been doing some renovations?). No bar or anyone around really to ask if it was possible to get a drink. Rambled out to the resort of Kamala - did not like it at all. A bit seedy and too many touts harassing you to go into shops etc. Had decided that we would not spend more than one night before we even went to bed. Had to check wi-fi downstairs for our next hotel in the deserted restaurant as it did not work in the bedrooms. The night was even more special - air conditioning unit took off like a jet engine at about 4am which put paid to having any more sleep that night. Only cold water tap in bathroom and shower was very hard to regulate temperature. Breakfast was nice and was the one and only table service breakfast we had on the whole trip. However, you had better like eggs! I guess the moral of the story is that you get what you pay for. This was the cheapest hotel we stayed in for our 3 week trip and it had every evidence of it. However there is better value at this price or for a little more out there. Could not possibly recommend this hotel to anyone unless they get their act together.

The pictures set a certain expectation. When I got here I found an old room, rusty fridge, old furniture and an uncomfortable bed. Theres even a hole in the door covered up and stuffed with tissue paper.

As I did not like the tourist invaded beaches of Kata, Karon or Patong I decided to move to Kamala beach. This beach is not as popular with tourists, however it also offers all the amenities, stores and bars but on a much smaller and likeable scale.

The Thaikamala Village is directly located on the beach of Kamala, there is no road or noisy bars in front of it. All rooms have a great view over the ocean and a nice balcony. The hotel is calm as in front there is only the ocean and on the other side it is a bit away from the road (and therefore not easy to find). The hotel seems to be popular with older couples who enjoy a more quite vacation. These customers seem to visit on a regular basis, so the hotel can be booked out at times. There are maybe 30 rooms in the hotel. The rooms offer a minibar and satellite TV.

Price: We paid 1800Baht for high season, however if you stay longer you get a discount. This may not be very cheap for Thailand, but if you don`t want to keep looking for ages this is a good value place to stay at Kamala beach.

Positive: Great location, Kamala Beach is not as spoiled as the rest of Phuket yet. The hotel is directly on the beach and it is located calm. All rooms have a great view on the ocean. The staff is very nice and everybody truly makes an effort to make your stay as great as possible. During our stay everybody was extraordinary friendly and helpful. We appreciated this a lot coming from Kata beach. The girl at the reception was especially kind to us (unfortunately I forgot her name). The owner (French or Belgian) came over a bit grumpy, but his Thai employees made that up completely.

Negative: The rooms are very simple and the furniture is old. However the beds are good and the rooms and bathrooms are clean. The balcony offers not too much privacy as other people can look onto your balcony.

Conclusion: Being rather young I did not mind sharing the hotel with retired couples as the location was perfect and the staff was lovely. When visiting Kamala beach I would go again and I can recommend this hotel to everybody who likes a great location, doesn`t mind simple rooms and appreciates friendly staff.
