My partner & I stayed for 7 nights 27 March till 3 April. Check in at 9pm was very quick and easy. We were kindly upgraded from a deluxe room to a premium deluxe (in what is called the garden area, wing 1). This room (no 370) was probably around 4 down from the access road to Soi Bangla and although outside we could hear the doof doof music, inside with the air con running (which was very good) we could not hear a thing!!!
The bed (king), as previously mentioned throughout these reviews, was very hard but with a word to the lovely cleaning lady was remedied in no time with a topper, which made a huge difference. The room itself was cleaned beautifully every day, with free water provided and everything very well maintained. This is an older hotel so don't expect new and luxurious but this room was quite adequate for a week long stay.
The bathroom was very spacious with wonderful water pressure in the shower (we also had a bath but was not used). Be aware, you may NOT flush ANYTHING down the toilet, this means NO toilet paper!!!!! After a day or so we adjusted but it was a bit of a shock to start with, lol.
Yes, you have to pay for the in room safe but as we had done our research we were aware and happy to pay. Breakfast (which was included) was more than adequate in choice, although aside from the egg station, things were never hot (just warm). Still very nice though, with changes to the menu every day.
We used the pool in the 'garden area' and the pool guys were lovely (the pool was spotless). The pool itself is just a simple rectangle surrounded by trees which provide shade for those who wanted it. Plenty of sun lounges for all. It was nice to cool off after returning to the resort after exploring Patong. Great people watching area too, lol.
Location of the resort was fantastic, we had no need to take tuk tuks or taxis, we could walk through any of the 3 exits to get to the beach, Jungceylon shopping centre and the main Patong Rd. Soi Bangla was just a few hundred metres away with some amazing sights to be seen, fantastic people watching and more bars than you can poke a stick at :)
Overall we would return to the Patong Resort Hotel, our stay was great with no problems whatsoever and the location can not be beaten.
