Our family, which included a six month old and two year old, was looking for a hotel with the convenience of being not too far from the airport, not too far from Patong, near a beach, room with a private pool and near local restaurants. We hit the jackpot with Moevenpick Bangtao as the small resort ticked all the right boxes.
We booked the two-bedroom suite with private pool but were given a free upgrade to the three-bedroom penthouse with jacuzzi. I was hesitant at first as I wanted a proper pool with our room but after viewing the penthouse, it was a no brainer! The penthouse was HUGE and jacuzzi was a larger than average dip pool. The large common pool was only a few steps away; and was never crowded and always at a wonderful temperature. However, don't expect a proper seaview though - the view is mostly covered by the rooftops of the shops in front of the beach and trees.
The beach club was still a WIP when we were there, but was decent enough to have our breakfast by the beach. The beach was clean and never crowded. Our only gripe was the breakfast fare, which was largely forgettable aside from the freshly made pancakes and crepes. Service at breakfast was very good, while service in other parts of the hotel wasn't of a 5-star hotel quality. But small matter!
A warning though, the resort has a lot of steps and stairs which may not be convenient for older people, or if you have wheelchairs or strollers. It was a bit rainy when we were there so it was precarious and slippery carrying our entire crew around.
