After doing extensive searching for a kids friendly hotel in Patong, we finally settled for the Holiday Inn Resort Patong. The hotel is ideally located accross the road from the beach in the heart of Patong. Bangla road is not too far away and if one uses the back entrance to the hotel, Jungceylon Shopping centre is about a 15 minute walk away.
Peter, the Guest Services Manager who took us through the check-in process, walked us to our room and took the time to show us around. The rooms were spacious, clean and adequately equipped just as was promised when I booked online. All the basics were available including a decent wi-fi connection. Even with the high humidity levels the rooms still felt fresh and airy and was always a welcome retreat whenever we got back from the beach, walking around Patong, a long day out touring or after some intense shopping.
There were some renovations going on during our stay but noise level were kept to a minimum so it didnt really bother us at all. The hotel has a very calm and friendly atmosphere and there are activities for the kids during most of the day. The kids loved the play area which kept them entertained for hours.
Unfortunately during our stay, both our kids became sick with food poisoning after eating some fruit at one of the restaurants in Patong and the staff at the hotel went out of their way in assisting us in any way that they could. There is a nurse at the hotel at specific times during the day and she was also dispatched to our room to check on the kids during this time. She provided helpful advice and assistance during this time at no charge.
It was really an enjoyable stay at this hotel and I would advise any parent going to Patong with kids to seriously consider staying at Holiday Inn Resort. We have spoken to some parents with kids staying at other hotels and almost every one of them said that they would rather spend the little extra the next time and stay at Holiday Inn. It is part of a group that can be trusted and with an international footprint in the industry and with a reputation that is very important to them, they will not disappoint you. Well Done!
