Reviewed April 13, 2013

Across the road from the beach so was a little disappointed when I arrived. Also seeing the steep roadway to rooms I thought I may have made a mistake booking here. Once we were taken to our room via the 12 seater golf cart , I felt much better. We booked the diamond suite and can highly recommend this type of room. It is spacious and clean and bright & breezy. We had an Ocean view which was nice. Normally we don't spend much time in our room but this was easy to do here, especially with the air conditioning on. Spent most of our pool time in the Ocean View pool area as this was quieter. For families with children the other pool area (Grand Wing Pool, I think) is great complete with water slide and basket ball net, lots to do or nothing if preferred.
People commented in some reviews on having to wait for the shuttle to take them to Lobby or Restaurants, well all I can say is that unless you have a disability or just plain lazy,why not walk! I understand that it is a little steep for some rooms but going to either it is downhill. Heh a little work out is great then you can fit in more food, you now deserve it. Try walking back, great exercise. We never had to use the gym as never used the shuttle. In saying that we always saw the shuttle so they were always around if we needed them.

We hired a scooter just across the road only about $6 per day. Didn't eat in the Restaurants other then breakfasts, which were great. Had room service a few times and that was average. Having the scooter we ventured out for most meals.

Pro's Our room
House maid service
Pine & Chad great helpful staff
Only 3 mins drive from Patong (Approx 12 min walk)
Quiet resort

Con's. Room Service menu
The repetitive music in the Grand Wing Pool Area ( get a new CD)
Most staff don't understand a lot of English, but we are in Thailand I suppose.

Room Tip: Diamond suite with Ocean View.

My wife and I stayed in a beautiful room overlooking the pool at the Diamond wing ocean view room it also had a jetted tub with a wonderful view of the forrest behind the hotel. We got there on the 5/4/13 at around 10a.m greeted by lovely staff and a nice refreshing drink. We then took a ride in a car up to our wing thankyou to those drivers as the hill is pretty steep they go up and down like a yoyo from around 5 or 6a.m til around midnight or so they are so friendly. We did not have breakfast there so cannot comment. The room has big towels and huge shower and toilet could almost swing a cat. Big bed abit hard but we didn't mind that the aircon was good to. We finally found a pretty good breakfast on the last day as there a few number 6's that taxi showed us unfortunately wrong one's but this place is called Chez Bernard no6 on Patong Beach reasonably piced 180bhat for American brekky and had dinner there as well I got a whole baked fish for 300baht which is around 10dollars aussie very nice also as everyone has mentioned Wai Thai just up or down depending on the direction you come from also good food. As for Finnigans Wake great service great if you want to watch sport as for food our experience was not good at all food out of 10 lucky to get a 1. Overall the Hotel was great and accomodating for all ages and great time.

We stayed here for the second half of our honeymoon. We found there to be some great points but don't see why it was a 4 star 'resort'
Pros
Beautiful spa in the ocean front suite
Clean rooms
Location was alright
Really nice guys on shuttle bus/ security
Cons
Food wasn't that flash
They seem to almost only care about Japanese/Korean tourists
Poor understanding of English
Rude waitstaff
No activities at the activity centre
Beds were rock hard

While we did enjoy our stay and we did enjoy the extras for our honeymoon (which we paid for) this resort fails to live up to its rating and we won't be back

We just spent seven days at Diamond Cliff. Everything about this hotel is amazing - location, facilities and a special mention goes to the Royal Thai Orchid restaurant: located within the resort, the food is genuine, spicy Thai fare.
We stayed in the Romantic Suite - a little on the pricey side but oh so worth it. Three pools to choose from, a private beach just a short drive away, as well as a swim up bar that served the most amazing pineapple and coconut smoothie.
Granted the resort is a short tuk tuk ride from Patong, but that worked for us: this was a relax and do nothing kind of holiday.

I would heartily recommend Diamond Cliff.

Hotel Transfer: We arranged a hotel transfer for the cost of (THB800 – AUD$27.00) one way from airport to hotel

Check in / check out: Fantastic – the girl who checked us in went over all the hotel information, including all the restaurants and the resort map. This was a nice touch and I have never experienced this in any other hotel I have stayed in.

Room Type: Diamond Suite – Ocean View Suite (upgraded)

Room Pro’s: Diamond Suite was located on a higher floor & had a sea view (partially obstructed by gorgeous tropical palm trees). Ocean View Suite had unobstructed sea view which was magic. Bedroom & living areas with wooden floors throughout were very spacious.
Bathroom areas in both rooms were fantastic. The bed in Diamond Suite was on the hard side.The bed in the Ocean View Suite was softer.
Diamond Suite & Ocean View Suite both came with a separate huge bath in its own room overlooking the ocean. The Ocean View Suite had a Jacuzzi bath. The bathroom also had a separate toilet and shower as well as heaps of cupboard space. Both Suites had a great balcony to watch the sunset.

Room Con’s: Wooden floors can be noisy when walking. You cannot plug in a HDMI cable as TV’s are wall mounted.

Hotel Spa: We booked in for a massage each and this was very relaxing. I had a soft relaxation massage (60min) and my fiance had a traditional Thai stretching massage (60min). Both were very good and reasonable prices compared to Australia. We paid approx AUD$130 for both. There are cheaper massages to be had outside the resort, but of course you are paying for the resort spa ambiance.

Hotel Pools: Beautiful. The Diamond wing pool (near our room) is fantastic & massive. Swim up pool bar, separate waterfall pool, basketball hoops and a little snack area for pool side meals.
We also enjoyed the Ocean View (middle) pool, located near the Ocean View Cafe restaurant – this became our favourite pool. It was large and such a great setting and we always got a sunbed here.

Hotel Grounds: The hotel is set on a steep hillside and yes, there are a lot of steps if you wish to walk around. There is also a bus shuttle that takes you to your room / lobby on a frequent basis that you can use if you don’t feel like the walk.

Restaurants / Room Service: We ate at the Diamond Hut one night but weren't too impressed with the food – the cocktails however are fantastic and the staff are so friendly!
Happy hours in the various bars are 50% off, with most cocktails being, full priced, THB190 (AUD$6.20), so happy hour is great value!
We ate breakfast a few mornings in the Ocean View Café and this was great – reasonably priced a la carte menu and delicious omelettes!
Room service is good value, the menu could do with a few extra items – more snacks than meals – I would be happy to provide these suggestions directly to Diamond Cliff if they wished.

Hotel Location: We were very happy with the location as we did not want to stay in the heart of busy Patong. A tuk tuk ride was THB200 to Jungceylon and about 10mins away. This is a quiet area but within walking distance of a lot of restaurants. Joe Downstairs, Baan Rim Pa and Da Maurizio are just across the road and are all yummy. At the bottom of the small hill is one of my favourite restaurants, Baan Kalim. There is also a convenience store at the bottom of the small hill also.

Hotel Service: A few days into our stay people were checked in above us and they were very noisy (kids running). We told the front desk manager about this and we were moved straight away to another wing and also an upgraded room type.
A big thanks to Jinny who helped accommodate this quick move – it was lovely to meet you and you are a great asset to Diamond Cliff!
A few nights into our stay we were invited to a management ‘meet & greet’ cocktail party and we had a great time! There was complimentary cocktails and finger food. Meeting the staff was great and everyone was super friendly. If you get an opportunity to attend one of these we highly recommend going along!

Overall Assessment: This resort is a great alternative for those wanting to be near the action, but not right in the action. We would definitely go back if we visit the region again.

Room Tip: The rooms in the higher floors in the Diamond Wing are great and have a sea view (sometimes partial...

We have just returned from a 2 week stay in Phuket today, my sister had booked this hotel therefore why we stayed here. This is our 4th time to Thailand, but have travelled quite extensively as a family and by ourselves. First of all, the lack of English in this hotel was appalling, I don't expect the staff to be fluent but at least to understand basic English would be imperative working in the tourism industry. The breakfast was overpriced and disgusting to say the least 649Baht per person for frukost buffet, there were birds flying out of the bread basket, very little selection, catered far too much for the Japanese guests rather than making it suitable for all nationalities and cultures. Thank goodness we didnt include breakfast, so we opted to go into town to buy breakfast every day. The room was actually very nice, we had an Ocean View Suite with Spa, very clean, spacious, and was cleaned every day (no complaints there), we were in room 1836, and had a great view. The pools were again pretty average, only one decent pool in the whole resort, I would of expected more from a 4.5 star hotel. They have a shuttle that takes guests from reception up to their rooms regularly, this was a nice touch, and a nice man that drove the vehicle, very friendly. Great gym, one of the best gyms I have ever seen in a hotel, we worked out every day because of the quality of the equipment and availability. The main pool with poolbar was nice, however they played the same CD over and over again repeatedly for 2 weeks, even when I asked them to change it, their English was so poor that they didnt understand. I definitely wouldnt stay here again.

Room Tip: 1836 - Ocean View Suite with Spa, great room, great view, close to pool.

Shuttle service up and down the hill was efficient and much needed in the heat! We had a room in the diamond cliff block, these were very large and had huge bed, seating and dining area, and a good bathroom arrangement with separate toilet, freestanding shower and a further bathroom area one end with a sink and a sunken bath where you could have a soak overlooking the sea view. Lots of large clean towels, dressing gowns, flip flops, slippers and toiletries. Plenty of free bottled water. Hotel resort was very clean.
Breakfast was nice, large choice but our experience was if you went late, the quality was not as good. Have had better breakfasts but couldn't really criticise it too much.
Did not eat in any of the restaurants during our stay, preferring to eat in patong centre.
All 3 pools looked nice, but we used the large one with the waterfall which was near to our block.
Used the free shuttle into patong on one night, in the heat it would not have been a comfortable walk into the Banglar Road area- some reviews say about a 20-30 minute walk, I think this is an underestimate.
Also went twice to Paradise Beach on the free shuttle - nice beach with facilities and we didn't get charged for the beds and umbrellas if you go on the shuttle.
Air con very welcomed, but is a bit noisy if you are a light sleeper.
Helpful security guards who stopped the traffic outside the hotel to enable you to cross the very busy road.
