My husband and I spent 5 days here in mid-March. I arrived here a week and a half into our 2 week Thailand vacation with wax impacted upon my eardrum which was really bumming out my vacation. Upon explaining my problem to Starr he and Jay immediately arranged an appointment with his doctor at the hospital in Phuket. Within a two hour period after checking in, I had a taxi to the hospital, saw the doctor who fixed my ear, and was back by the pool at Friendship Beach ready to resume vacation! Now THAT is service! Pool is marvelous. Food is great. Staff very responsive and friendly. Live music on Friday nights is nice. My only complaint is that the Europeans who stay here smoke incessantly. Yuck. Being from the US, I've been spoiled by our no smoking laws. The resort is kind of isolated unless you have a vehicle. The main road is too trecherous to walk so we rented a motor scooter (cheap and fun! The taxi service in/around Phuket is a racket) from across the road for several days to go to Rawai and beyond. Thank you, Starr and staff, for a wonderful end to our vacation!
