We stayed at the Burasari for three nights right after Christmas. We had paid extra for a room with a jacuzzi, but when we got there we were given a tiny room overlooking nothing more than an air shaft. To the hotel's credit, when we showed them our reservation slip, they immediately corrected the problem and gave us a large room with a jacuzzi on a private balcony. From that point, the service was hit or miss -- some nights we got turn down service and hand towels, other nights we didn't, and without rhyme of reason. That said, the hotel was generally a cheerful place, the staff was nice, and the breakfast buffet was decent.
However, if you're looking for a quiet getaway, this is not the place to do it. Patong is more like Panama City during spring break (keep the fraternity boys but trade the sorority girls for actual prostitutes), not a serene, quiet beach. It is very loud at all times, the beaches are crowded, and the water is not clean, plus Patong is the center of the Island's red-light district, and that's readily apparent. There are many other areas of Phuket that are quieter, cleaner, and more relaxing. You may have to pay more, but looking back, we wish that we had.More
