This hotel provides everything you would expect from a Holiday Inn. We stayed for 2 weeks in the main wing. The pools and grounds are fabulous for adults and children alike with plenty of sunloungers, free towels and the (busy but lovely) beach is just across the road. The breakfasts are fabulous and the food at Terrazzo and Seabreeze buffet is also good - if expensive. The older kids club is a great place for the children to escape the sun and despite advertising as 12+ they allow younger children if the staff are happy that they are mature enough to be left. The rooms are spacious and very clean and comfortable, although the balconies are small. The hotel staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful.
Patong is busy and very tourist orientated. Expect to see McD's, KFC, Hargen Daas, Burger King etc... Bangla Road is a sight if you are not easily shocked but is easily avoided if its not your style. Outside the hotel you will be approached to buy things from shops, sellers and the words "You wanna TukTuk" or "You wanna suit" will ring in your ears!! However, it is all very friendly - its easy to just keep walking or give a simple "No thanks". If you do want to buy - decide what you want to pay and Barter!! Be prepared to walk away to get the price down...if the seller doesn't come down, someone else will!
If you like Thai Food eat away from the main streets - walk down the side roads a little and its half the price. Massage and beauty treatments in the hotel may be cheaper than the UK and great if you really want a spa atmosphere but for Thai massage, foot massage etc. try one the of many local massage places. We had 2 x 1 hour Thai massages and 2 x 1 hour foot massages for around £10 in total!! Ask for gentle though, unless you like pain!!
Try Scuba Cat for Diving/snorkelling (5 min walk from Hotel). Great for experienced and beginners alike. Our children did a "Bubblemaker" which they loved! We enjoyed the Fantasy show and the aquarium, which may not be quite as good as the UK equivalent but at around £2 each its well worth a visit).
This time of year (end of August) is rainy. We had a lovely week with a bit of rain and a rainy week with a bit of lovely!! However, its nice and warm even in the rain!
