“great place, but its changed names again!”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

we stayed here 8 years ago when it was tropicana, then it was a great place hence why we came back!

staff are great, they all have weird names which are really easy to remember, golf, ice, milk etc

got a great rate concidering it was valentines day and still chinese new year celebrations. it was completely booked and we couldnt upgrade our room.

rooms are nice a big, sucks there is no free wifi on each room but lobby and pool have it.

breakfast is awesome there. omelets are declicious and a big selection of food. soup is yummy as well and is all included in rooms.

lobby is nice and big plenty of seats. its connected to the hard rock which have the most delicious burgers and trio of meats OMG soooo good.

pool on the 3rd level is right next to the kids area and we like the swim up bar but the kids diving and swiming was not so relaxing... pool on level 7 gets alot more sun as well as its on the top instead of inside the building we found it gets cold in the afternoon on level 3.

all in all its a great place. its now called DESTIT2 i believe according to the door.

will be going back here next trip also!

Room Tip: the studio room looks awesome and isnt that much to upgrade to when you are in the hotel.

We arrived early at 8.30 am at the hotel after an overnight flight from Australia. We were greeted by a young girl who could hardly speak English. We asked if we could gain early access to our room and we're advised that it wasn't possible and check in was 2pm. I had previously written to the hotel and advised them that we would be arriving early and their reply was if there was something available it would be possible.

We weren't offered a cool drink (like we saw all the other guests had received) or even advised that there was a shower on level 3 if we wanted to freshen up. We were basically told to go away and come back at 12 pm to see if there was anything available.

we knew that this was not off to a good start, so we went and had some breakfast and waited until 1pm until a room came free.

The premier room that I requested was to be pool facing with a pool view. What we were given was a balcony room on level 3 with a lovely view of concrete!!!

The room was lovely and spacious but that is the only positive. We did not have one good night sleep and we were there 8 nights. Doors slamming, people yelling and running up the halls like they were on a contiki tour! I Think this hotel caters for groups as the noise from 10pm to 3am is out of control!!!

The breakfast was your run of the mill buffet. The staff in the restaurant were pleasant.

The hotel is in a good location close to everything but that is where it stops.

Will we return to Destination Patong.... Not a hope !!!!

We traveled as a group of 4 friends to Phuket recently from 25th January to 28th January 2014... We had been allocated the rooms on 4th floor with 3rd floor swimming pool facing and the main road on the balcony side.

It was overall an excellent stay of 3 nights for us. We stayed in the Premier Rooms, with almost all the facilities you can name in a big hotel. The rooms were large enough with a good size balcony, wherein you can choose to sip on some evening drinks. If you are a rock music lover then you can find the Hard Rock Cafe just on the main road side of the building which play a louder music till mid-night.The linen and most of the furniture in the room was properly maintained and in excellent condition. But, as read in some of the earlier reviews, the refrigerator was not cooling enough though we did not complain about the same as we had 2 different rooms and the one in the other room was perfectly in the working condition...

Swimming pools looked good with glowing stars in the night. The hotel has 2 swimming pools - one at level 3 and the other one at level 7...

The Service staff was quicker to assist you...

Breakfast offered manifold options with different varieties in fruits, bakery products extending the list to many different options...

We would definitely love to stay here again, if get a chance then with family as kids too can enjoy with the different play facilities available for the kids...

Room Tip: If you hate late night music then prefer the rooms on other side than the one on which Hard Rock Caf...
