First I will review the hotel then patong - please think about what you are after in your trip!
The hotel was cleaned everyday, staff were friendly and we booked our trips from the hotel. I was sent an email asking if we wanted collecting for the airport which I turned down - don't take it. The airport is swamped with overpriced taxi companies that bombarded us after a stressful flight for me. Avoid these and walk out the airport in search of a metered taxi. The room at the hotel was a good size and comfortable and the mini bar is very reasonably priced too. It's in a good location for patong as far enough away from the noise to be quiet. It's about a 15minute walk from the beach but you are slowed by the shops hauling in your trade.
Patong - we were travelling accross Thailand and this was the first stop. Phuket as a whole seems nice and we saw traditional Thailand but patong is not that. It seems to be the new upcoming party capital abs has become very westernised. Food is no linger cheap in comparison to Thailand and every shop you pass calls you in for trade or try and shake your hand then won't let go. The massage parlours also go after you and I was regularly groped. If you are going to party the patong is great but if you are wanting to see Thailand stay in chalong which is much nicer. I also wouldn't advise going to patong with children as in the evenings everyone is trying to sell you tickets to the local sex shows.
