Besides the excellent location, there is really nothing nice about this place!
Room is old with outdated furniture. Bathroom is no better. There is no view from the window and you could hear the air con compressors which were placed right outside the windows. The noise really disturbed us during the night.
Breakfast was simple and in the 4 days that we were there, there weren't really much changes in the buffet menu.
Front office staff were unfriendly and were really no help when we made enquiries.
We love Phuket - and look forward to returning but would not stay here again.

This was a great find for our party of 3. I, my wife and our 16 year old son. One of a few locations that can accommodate 3 people in a room. The resort was spotless, the room up to date and clean with all the amenities that were expected and required. We had a second floor balcony room overlooking the pool and interior courtyard with a view of the ocean as well. The location is great being right on the beach as well as adjacent to major shopping locations and the night life area. There are many dining locations along the beach in easy walking distance also. The resort also has a nice pool area which closes at 7:00 pm ( this is unfortunate as it's nice to swim a little later) probably due to it's proximity to the resort restaurant. We felt safe here and had no concerns walking about. The resort has an afternoon Happy Hour, it's own restaurant and bar and drinks on the beach as well. The included buffet breakfast was more than adequate, nicely served with local cuisine as well as western cuisine food available. I was also able to arrange transport from and to the airport with the hotel prior to arriving via email which worked out well. The car was waiting at the airport when we got off the plane. If we ever get back to Thailand we would stay here again. All in All a great place for the price and I would recommend this place to anyone

Room Tip: Choose an interior room as the night life in Thailand goes on till late in the evening/early morning...

Just moved from a hotel BaanLaiMai, which was 3/4 the price as this.
Paying over $90 a night & initially got a room which you walked up stairs & down a dark ally to get to.
The room is outdated, there is a shower over bath with shower curtain. Two beds have been pushed together to make 1.
Pool is small.
Not impressed with the room at all & the price tag had a discussion with staff who are really helpful & were upgraded for free after saying we would cancel. Moved to a junior suite room. Much better then the first two rooms we were shown. They all had this smell of needing to be aired out. Breakfast was ok, nothing to right home about

On a positive note, location is great, once we were moved it was really quite, security patrolled all night. Staff are friendly.

For the cost of the location I wouldn't stay here again

Perfect Location. The best I have ever found in all my previous stays.
4 min to Bangla road
12 min to Jungcyleon Shopping plaza
Deluxe Room ok and quite spacious.
Furniture old and bed a bit hard for deluxe room.
Found 2 cockroaches in 4 days - so not bad with 1/2 cockroach per day
Very good balcony
Pool very small, I did not feel like swimming.
Breakfast pretty good for the price with room
Staff reasonably good. Be nice to them and they will be nice to you.
Sea view from balcony. Take deluxe room or better.
I don't mind staying there again if I don't use the swimming pool
Bathroom stuff cheap
Room floor is not good. A drop of water and it would make it all slippery.
Make sure to check the mini bar when you check in. I found one item missing and notified the front desk.

Room Tip: just get deluxe room or better

I've stayed here from 21st June till 24th June. A really strategic place to stay. Walking distance to Bangla Road, Hard Rock Cafe and my fav restaurant Kusuma. Located by the beach where other hotels located across the road.
Friendly and helpful staff. Booking.com messed up my reservation but hotel managed to get me a room with a reasonable rate. Overall, i love the hotel and would recommend everyone to stay here!

Many things went wrong for us and our friends at this 'resort'.
Frist off, one morning my boyfriend was not feeling well so I went down to the breakfast area at 10:40 and I asked if there was any left over watermelon and they said yes, and it will cost me 300 Baht! Great customer service!

Second, we booked an island hoping experience for us and about 30 other people who were staying at this resort (booked THROUGH the hotel). We booked a private boat for all of us, and when we got to the launch spot (which was FULL of garbage) there was no boat. The one boat they had was already full of customers (with a broken toilet) and they tried to usher the 30 of us onto that boat... there werent even enough lifejackets for the people already on the boat. We all paid 1100 Baht each to go on this experience and the hotel did not give us anything back. They told us if we wanted a private boat, it was 5000 more (even though we already had discussed this).

Thirdly, there is a restaurant RIGHT out front of the hotel, so if they stick you in one of the front rooms (overlooking the road) don't expect to get any sleep.

At night, there are very large rats running around, So gross!!!

I really do not recommend this hotel... there are much better, customer oriented, friendly, clean options near by.

Room Tip: IF you choose to stay here, which I do not suggest, you NEED to get a room close to the ocean, other...
