“A great place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Fabulous location, great rooms, pools, staff, breakfasts all for a good price. We obtained an excellent price "My Time" package via Flight Centre (same price as various web sites but with fabulous American buffet breakfast included daily) Stayed in adjoining superior rooms and these were perfectly adequate, personally I wouldn't pay extra for a so-called deluxe or pool side room - no privacy and no lovely balcony to sit on and watch over the antics or serenity of the pool below. Air conditioning was excellent, as was room servicing, mini bar prices, check in & welcome was exceptional . Criticisms (and I'm being picky, were beds a bit firm, towels were getting a bit tired, toilet seat was due for replacement, and some female reception & hotel tour desk staff were a bit frosty& brusque, particularly compared to the warmth and service excellence received from housekeeping, bar staff, wait staff, security, and exceptional pool staff. Would definitely stay again if visiting Patong, although wouldn't submit myself to a whole week amidst Patong's frenetic pace & full-on madness next time round - three nights would do it!

Room Tip: Superior room was great value for money and would be my choice (lovely balconies & pool views...

The Banthai Beach Resort & Spa Patong Beach is a good 4 Star Hotel. In the Center of Patong Beach. Nice Rooms. Good Breakfast. 3 swimming pools. Bars & Restaurants. I asked for a quiet room but got one next to the Housekeeping Area. Very noisy. Hotel Staff very friendly as all the people in Patong Beach or Thailand are. Got only 1 hour Free Internet per day. Otherwise you need to spend 10 EURO per day for 24 hours Internet connection. Still remains a good Hotel in Patong Beach.

Room Tip: Do Not Take Rooms between 2410 - 2419 or 2310 - 2319 or 2210 - 2219 or 2110 - 2119 as this is the si...

The first thing which comes to my mind to describe my stay at the Ban thai is the word 'happening'. This property is in the heart of patong and if you want a hotel close to the beach and close to Bangla road you couldnt get better.

Positives:-
Location is very good, walking distance from the beach, shopping, bars and pubs.
Rooms are modern and I really like the balcony facing the pool, super for smokers.
Reasonably priced.

Negatives:-
Can be noisy, definately not for the peace seekers.
Beds could have been a little more comfortable.

Verdict:-
Super choice when visiting Patong. We went with friends and it was a lot of fun. step out and party or soak in the sun and when the sun went down the hotels close enough to get back from a night of crazy partying in any state!

Would definately visit again.

Room Tip: get a room facing the pool

I went here with a friend and we got seated in the middle of the outside area just in front of the stage whe live music was playing.
It quickly dawned on me that it was a mistake to go there, because the band playing thought that we where all the to listen to them and not to enjoy our dinner, so they played really really loud. This could have been acceptable if they had been any good, bud sadly they where really bad singers and they totally ruined the evening for us.

The food was mediocre and could in no means balance they loud music, on top of all this it turned out that this was absolutely the most expensive place I had been eating in the 2 weeks I been in Patong, 2500 bath for 2 people.

We recently stayed at the Banthai Beach Resort and loved every minute of our trip. This is our second time staying at this hotel and wouldn't stay anywhere else. The location is perfect, the hotel is set back from the main road in Patong requiring you to walk down a long driveway before entering the beautiful foyer (especially at night). Being set back allows the hotel to be more private and not have street noise travelling into the hotel. There are three fantastic pools, all with swim up bars but you can't go past Pool B (the middle pool). A special thank you to Tim and Jack who made us the best cocktails and kept everyone entertained with their games and tricks. They constantly check that you are OK and their customer service is A1. We already miss not going down to the pool around midday for a swim and endulging in a few drinks! We have stayed in a standard room twice now (3rd and 4th floors) and find this quite adequate for our holiday. Sure, there's no free WI-FI, you have to walk more than 5 steps to a pool, etc but we enjoy having a view over the pool and having some privacy. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. We have stayed at the Patong Merlin a couple of times before and although this is also a good hotel, we much prefer the Banthai. Breakfast choice is vast and having Mr Egg cook you an omlette, fried or scrambled eggs each more is a great way to start your day. We are also missing not having those delicious pancakes too each morning!

Close to Patong suitable for couples or party goers. Great hotel if you arent travelling with kids. Wish our travel agent had of said we would of spent 8 days with our son somewhere else! Hotel rooms and property is split and you have to walk through pools to get to each one there s another route but we didnt find it until last few days. Staff excellant location good food good. We are in Asia I get that but have travelled to Thailand before the safety is this hotel is a real issue. Bathroom was dangerous as having to step up and in behind a glass partition if you survived falling down the step and not slipping on the tiled floor when you entered the bathroom which resembles a tomb then good on you you are doing well. Rooms comfortable clean and well maintained design is poor and not good use of space. They charge you for EVERYTHING and ANYTHING at this hotel but with a big smile lol.I would not stay again I found getting around this hotel hard work for safety reasons and am not sure how other hotel guests who were out partying navigated about this hotel after dark and full of grog as it was hard work sober! No safety rails on stairs which are quite steep and slippery and after an intial fall it was the lift for me then onwards. Disapointing as I like to keep fit. Good hotel if you like the location and your idea of a holiday is getting on the booze. Ther were alotof older aussies boozing by the pool day in day out. No kids club or activities and tv cable wasnt working at the best of times and WIFI well it was ridiculous!No activites scheduled at this hotel its purely just food booze and accomodation the hotel is rather tired. Poor sleep quality as air con rattled away all night long. You will find better value somewhere else and absolutely no amenities for children my travel agent must have shares in this place I dont know why else she would recommend it I would NOT RECOMMEND for families with small children our son is 5.Pools were good but overused and it showed in the water quality.On the whole an average hotel for Patong.

Hi, my only negative about the Ban Thai was the beds. It was like sleeping on boards. Everthing else was great. It is a wonderful location away from the hustle and bustle as it is set well back from the main road. Pools are delightful.
