“We loved At Panta”
Reviewed March 8, 2010

My boyfriend and I stayed at At Panta last month and loved it. I really don't understand how its getting all these negative views. We thought it was stunning, the pool was beautiful (we also had it to ourselves on evening, bliss!) Our room (Poolside Thai Villa) was exquisite. I think the other reviewers may have stayed in the cheaper older rooms, in which case I would greatly recommend to anyone staying at At Panta (or any resort for that matter) pay the little bit extra to upgrade to nicer rooms, we did it at all 3 resorts on this trip and havent regretted it once.

Another common complaint by people was its a bit far out of the way. All I can say to that, is Google Maps isn't that hard to go to. Do a little research on where the resort is before you book like we did, therefore leaving out any room for disappointment. We found it a nice change after staying in the middle of Patong beach. Also, we hired scooters for 250baht per day, so drove ourselves from At Panta to wherever we wanted to go.... The stunning Surin Beach was only a ten min bike ride away at the most.

The staff were very friendly. The only gripe we had, was we were eagerly looking forward to the poolbar cocktails, but waited around in the pool for happy hour and no-one came to serve us.

Other than that, we thought it was a beautiful resort with very friendly staff.

The expression "I wouldn't board my dog there" was designed for At Panta, unless your dog happens to like hearing rats scurrying around the roof at night. When we complained, they merely said sorry.
The service is exceptionally slow. We stayed 3 to a room and we had to ask every day for a third towel when there were 3 beds in the room and we were paying for it!
The selection of food is poor and to make matters worse they rarely had the items we selected. It isn't the highest quality either. It's not inedible but I wouldn't recommend it either.
The location is not great so be aware of that if beach proximity is important to you. They offer a shuttle service to Surin beach but it's a joke. You have to book it in advance although the sign outside says nothing of the sort and when it does arrive (late), they squeeze 6 people into a small saloon.
I should try to end on a high note (for those of you still comtemplating this place), the swimming pool is not so bad!

This place is best avoided.

This place was dreadful! Horrible location (not near any beach whatsover), and they jack up the taxi fares. Absolutely nothing to do in the general vicinity of the hotel, which is next to a busy road, so expect lots of traffic noise. The stream that looks like a river in the photos is a breeding ground for mosquitos, so expect to be eaten alive at night. The one restaurant serves terrible food, but the bugs seemed not to mind it. I've stayed at much nicer places right on the beach for half of what this place charges. The staff were mostly friendly and helpful, but nothing could overcome the shortcomings of the so-called resort.

They make good use of their monopoly position due to the poor location. Because of the bad location it's hard to go anywhere else for dinner etc. So the food is bad and far too expensive, i got a gray banana shake (supposed 2 be yellow) dinner is a 1000 baht for a mediocre chicken satay and a mediocre curry.
Rooms were spacious and spotless though. But the cab fares were outrageous they charge 600 baht for a 15 minute trip to the airport which showed up 15 mins late and the engine fell out in the middle of the street.

In short not worth 4000 baht + 1000 for dinner + 600 for taxi, take another resort.
