We spent two weeks at this hotel in the beginning of March 2012, and found a hotel which is a bit datet and worn. But we were in no way let down by the promotion photos from the hotel's web site. The only thing we found not so good at this resort were the beds. In our room they were terribly hard!
The hotel truly provides a quiet retreat and a place to unwind from noisy, busy Patong. We met nothing but friendly and welcoming staff. The hotel provides both a shuttle bus within the resort, and a free shuttle service to Patong city. But the best service for us was the private beach; Paradise Beach. The resort has no beach of it's own, so as far as beaches within walking distance are concerned, Patong Beach is it. This is a public beach. We went there one day, but it is right next to the main road, which of course meant a bit of traffic noise. To go to Paradise beach you can reserve a place on the free shuttle, and yes you have to cling on to the back of a pick up truck during a twenty minutes at times bumpy ride, but it is so worth it. The beach is secluded, and has a nice little restaurant which also serves drinks on the beach. The sanatary facilities are also good with clean, functioning toilets and a shower. As a guest at Diamond Cliff you have free access. The days we weren't on outings or by the pool, we went to this beach - truly paradise!
