“Yuck water and cruddy sand”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

You're better off going down to Karon/Kata where the beach/ocean is immaculate. While in Patong, just swim in your pool...

“Not for me but might be for you”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

Wanted to write this review so people would know what to expect. When planning our 3 week trip to Thailand, we wanted to spend some time onPhuket Island. To be honest, I probably did not do enough research. We ended up in Patong which is probably the busiest place on the Phuket Island. Is you are looking for action, it is the right place but it wasn't for us. There is a lot more quiet on the island or even North of it where the beaches are as nice and where it is a lot more quiet (Kamala Beach, Kkaolak are only 2 examples). Also, Patong is not Thailand... It is very different.

“horrible !”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Unless you come there to party all night long or visit "ladies-bar" there is absolutely NO POINT to come to Patong.

Massive tourism has transform the place in a noisy, over crowed area.

The beach is awful, no point to stay.

“Beautiful Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Located along Beach road, near Bangla road.

Great beach, lots of guys sellig parasailing, jet ski etc, I was told jet skis are scams, not sure, never tried.

Right next to all the restaurants and bars, we love Molly Malones.

Other usual suspects, McD, B King etc....

Great place to spend the day chilling.
