Reviewed July 29, 2013

Very close to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Pool and Jacuzzi my favorite but staff will ask you to leave by 7pm. Also doing some renovations at the lobby and pool during the time of our visit, hopefully the hotel will be prettier after their update.
Wifi only available at the coffee shop, anywhere else you have to pay.

Overall, not very pricey but don't expect too much from the service, you only get what you pay for. :)

This was our third and final hotel stay on our 17 day holiday in Phuket.
Having stayed at 2 five star resorts before this, we found this hotel a bit less luxurious, but still comfortable and clean.
Having pounded the pavement with my loving shopaholic for hours every day, the room was comfortable and the AC was excellent.
The pool was fantastic with a deep end where you can dive in!! and a great atmosphere with friendly travelers and also friendly staff, especially the lovely young lady at the poolside bar (a real character), who understood us and interpreted for the other staff who found it difficult to communicate.
The bed was a bit hard in our opinion and wifi in our room rather than the unairconditioned lobby would have been nice, but we didn't pay a lot for the room anyway.
Located right next to Bangla Road which is so busy at night, except for the Buddhist Lent where all bars were closed for 2 days.
Also about 2 minutes walk to the beach.
Breakfast was not fantastic, but we had been spoilt at the last 2 resorts.
For our first 3 days we had prepaid breakfast, the next 3 days we paid a lot less outside for a better breakfast.
The hotel is having renovations and the normal breakfast room was not open and the area near the pool was being used. That might have been the reason for cold bacon and eggs.
We didn't dine in as there was so much choice with great value outside of the Hotel.
Overall if I needed to stay in Patong again, I would stay at this hotel with good value and location.

We started our stay in Phuket at the Patong Resort Hotel simply because we were in town for Dental Appointment before moving out to Cape Panwa. This hotel certainly didn't disappoint. The room was comfortable (except the bed was extremely hard) but the pool and the breakfast were lovely. We weren't disturbed by any renovations or noise from the Nightclubs. We were only about 500 meters from Jungceylon Shopping Centre and also our Dental appointment. Staff were friendly and there were an array of computer terminals to use. Highly recommended if you want to be close to the action (or appointments)!

Room Tip: If you want quiet at night, make sure to ask not to be in rooms near the Nightclubs!

The staff were incredibly nice. I loved staying here especially that we got our room upgraded. The staff are always smiling and willing to help. The pool is beautiful. When we stayed they were doing some renovations but still it was a great stay. I would definitely choose to stay here again.

We have just spent 3 wonderful weeks at the Patong Resort.We have stayed in Phuket many times and tried various hotels but this one stands out for friendliness cleanliness and you just can't beat the location.We were warned the main building was being renovated but the staff are going out of their way to make sure you are not inconvenienced, and unless you sit in your room all day it isn't a problem.Free Wifi is now available in the coffee shop.The pools are huge with plenty of sunbeds and shade if required.

Room Tip: High floor in main building for great views

Great location right on Bangla, but thats pretty much it.
Firstly had trouble getting all my "friend" past security after a night of go go dancing.They wanted too much money to take happy snaps whilst I was getting down and dirty!
Staff were rude as they did not know who I was! was at least expecting a "the champ is here" from them.
Also not enough mirrors so took longer to get ready before a night out.
Next time going somewhere else where they apprieciate the champ!
Day spa was terrible got a spray tan and ended looking all tandoori, not happy

My wife and I travel frequently to Thailand and usually stay at more upmarket accommodation but circumstances meant we ended up booking Patong Resort hotel. After reading some of the reviews we didn’t know what to expect, well what a pleasant surprise. We had a room facing the second pool away from the main building and it was absolutely wonderful. The staff couldn’t have been any friendlier and the location is a real bonus. It was fantastic for my wife to be able to enjoy all the Bangla Road night life and still be able to duck back to the room if she needed to use the facilities (If you have been to Thailand before you will know what I mean).
The room had heaps of closet space and the beds, although a little on the hard side, were still fine, you can always ask for a topper if you need one. The room was always kept spotless by the house keeping team who always went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. One of the girls brought in a wonderful bunch of flowers and gave them to my wife to thank her for giving her a tip.
Ignore some of the negative reviews, I can’t for the life of me work out how anyone couldn’t enjoy this hotel, sure if you want a 6 star experience then book somewhere else and pay 10 times more. We had a fantastic three weeks and will definitely be back next year and intend on staying a month.

Room Tip: Go for the upgraded premium rooms and ask for the wing away from the main building
