This hotel is supposed to be a 3-star property but I would rate it a lower 4-star..
The hotel is a few minutes walk to Patong Beach via small side road. It's perfect for people who want beach access but who also want to be away from the hubbub of the main road. It's also only 5-10 mins walk to Jungceylon, one of Phuket's biggest shopping centres, and the bars on Bangla Road. Perfect location for just about anything.
I stayed in the newer wing (Wing 1? I cannot remember so please check with them first before booking) and the room was HUMONGOUS with a nice balcony (not much of a view though). This wing is a 2-storey wing a bit of a walk from the main building. Rooms here are more updated than the rest of the resort with a few touches of the "spa" look in the bathroom.
Rooms at the main building are smaller. Old but well-maintained. The higher floors have a bit of a sea view from the balcony.
I do not recommend the rooms at the building directly in front of the main one. They seem to be the oldest and the sickly green walls did not appeal to me very much. I was told however that they were the rooms of choice for wheelchair bound guests as it's the most accessible of all the wings and they have free standing showers instead of tubs.
Pools are nice and big. If you're too lazy to go to the beach, you can hang around here too.
Minibar prices were surprisingly not too expensive.. compared to how other hotels charge.
Buffet breakfast was adequate. Not such a big spread but all the essentials were there. The spread doesn't vary much though so after your 3rd day you kinda get a bit tired of it.
