Stayed at Burisari for 7 nights in early June with our son and his girlfriend. Fantastic staff and the accomodation was really good. We had 14 nights in Phuket and chose, (before leaving Aust) to move to another hotel at Karon Beach . Stayed at Centra Karon Beach Resort. Not a par on Burisari. From Tum on Reseption to Jackie in the Breakfast Buffet and Lin in the Pool Bar, you could get a better bunch of people. It is the staff that make a hotel and Burisari is bursting with great staff, I don't remember all their names apart from the ones mentioned but there all have a smile, a friendly Sawadee ka (think that is how it is spelt) or hello and heaps of helpful hints on Patong Beach. Next time we are in Thailand, probably early next year, we will definately go back to Burisari. It is central to beach, half a block, central to shopping, half a block, in a very safe area, and about 3 blocks to Bangla Rd. It has everything going for it. Loved the place.
