“Perfect Honeymoon”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

We are a Sri Lankan couple and spent our honeymoon at Swiss Palm Beach in October 2012. We had not made a prior reservation and walked in to see if they have rooms. The staff (especially Philippe) was very welcoming and showed us around the property and we stayed in a cozy little two bedroom apartment. Although being adventurous, safety was our primary concern and the place was very safe and there were many families staying here.
Location: Excellent central location, walking distance to the beach and Bangla road yet it’s far enough from the noise and the party scene to get a good night's rest. The room was cleaned every morning. The staff was always friendly even when we walked in late in the night after partying :)
We were at the beach most of the time hence did not have food from the hotel. There are many places to get food around the area and we always tried a new place for each meal. (There is a lady selling Crepes right opposite the entrance...Yummy!)
They also arrange tours and airport drops at a very reasonable price (much cheaper than getting a cab from the airport). All in all it was a great place to stay and we had a lovely relaxing honeymoon… We will surely return!

Close to everything (shopping, mini mart, chemist, Legends bar, restaurant, massage). A nice walk along the beach to shopping centres and restaurants. Very affordable and quiet. Hope to go back and stay again.

Room Tip: Two bedroom unit near pool (room 21) was good. Stairs could be a problem with small children but ot...

Our young family of five (10, 8 and 6) recently stayed at the Swiss palm beach hotel. We enjoyed the pool and the location was good i.e. close to the beach. To describe the hotel I would say it was uncomplicated and good value. If you wanted night life it is not far away from the main drag (Bangla road), however we found that this hotel had mainly families which suited us very well. The resturant was very good and the staff friendly and accomodating. Our room was cleaned diligently every morning.
There was some maintenance going on in the nex appartment during our stay which involved a hammer drill. We cleared out and went to the beach so it was no problem.

We would definitly stay at this hotel when we return to Phuket and would recommend it to families of 4-5 who are looking for an extended stay at a very reasonable price.

Room Tip: Rooms are all similar. If you could get a room close to the pool it would be better.

Whilst it wasn't five star accommodation, it certainly fulfilled our needs for our stay. It did lack some variety for the kids but the pool did the trick most of the time!!

The staff were superb and I would have no hesitation in going back there or recommending this place as an alternative to the five star treatment as it is practically fully self contained!!

My husband, daughter and myself have stayed at Swiss Palm Beach many times over the last five years. Last year we had noticed a general lack of maintenance, but with a change of part-management that has been addressed, and very well done so.

The restaurant, reception and grounds have been re-vamped, and the pool is maintained daily (previously not the case). The staff are long-term, and when on a family vacation we find that a good thing. They have come to know our little one and look out for her - sometimes you need eyes in the back of your head...lol! The baby-sitting services are wonderful and we feel nothing but confident.

The restaurant food continues to be wholesome and good value...yes you can get cheaper on the streets, but not that much cheaper, and it is convenient to be able to get breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks whilst sitting around the pool.

The resident driver (Mr. Somchai) is kind, courteous and knowledgeable. Rather than haggle with drivers on the street we would book him for the day to take us where ever we wanted to go on the island, knowing we weren't going to be ripped off, we would be safe, and be taken where we wanted to go....not dropped off at a travel agent for a hard sell halfway through the day!

The apartments are of varying quality (each individually owned), so if you can afford it, spend the tiny bit extra and go for a Deluxe Apartment, which has two toilets, a really well appointed kitchen and dining area, and televisions in the loungroom and main bedroom. With the change of management the kitchen in the Deluxe now includes a toaster and a working cooktop. A three-quarter size fridge is in the kitchen, allowing you to cool down a fair few drinks and keep some snacks and food cold. Some of the standard and superior apartments do need some renovating.

The apartments are exceedingly well located at the northern end of Patong, but still only a 20 minute walk to Bangla Road, or a 150 THB tuk tuk ride. There are a number of tuk tuk vendors outside the main entrance, along with a pharmacy, general store, money changer, hairdresser, ATM, coffee shop, and of course a TAILOR! Drop your laundry at the Eden Laundry situated in the lane outside the complex...it is the same price per kg as all the others, but is a better quality clean.

Swiss Palm is small complex which allows it to offer many things the bigger resorts can't i.e. you can walk from you apartment to the pool in your togs, you can consume your own shop bought drinks around the pool (you only need walk a few metres to your room for another cold one), you can self-cater if you like, close to the beach and is a quiet haven in what can be a very hectic place....but still only a very short distance to the noise and rabble of Asia. It is a great family and friends orientated holiday complex. It is not glitzy, but it is a great value for money holiday apartment resort.

To the new management...thankyou for the improvements and those to come.

Room Tip: Ask for a first floor apartment as the ground floor apartments can be a bit dark.

It was an awesome 3 nights there. My family of 4 loved it! We stayed at a standard 2 bedroom apartment no 9, and theres nothing negative to point out about the place.The service that the staffs provide was excellent! The manager was very helpful, and we even had a complimentory to check out late in the evening around 7pm instead of the usual check-out time of 12 noon which was perfect since our flight back home was at 10pm.

My family of 4 stayed at Swiss Palms for 9 nights in May 2012. We had the 2 bedroom apartment number 35. A tiny resort tucked away from the noise of the main roads. Beds firm, apartment cleaned everyday. we used the kitchen for cooking breaky daily. Lounge comfy to lay on and watch tv on the rainy day or 2 we had. Pool clean and gardens beautiful.Food cheap in restaurant and massages/pedicure ladies beside Swiss Palms were awesome and just as cheap as out on the main roads. Close to a little shop for any drinks/iceblocks etc. "Sam the Roti man" was outside every night from 5pm till late. and a coffee shop next door who makes awesome coffee frappe's. We stayed in a 4 star resort in Krabi before we came to Swiss Palms and the kids much preffered this small resort. Great value for money.......
