The Old Phuket is tired,run down and in need of maintenence. The rooms are large ,Queensize bed,day bed,single. the whole room is painted white including the floor -which makes it difficult to clean as the floor and walls are grubby . The towels and linen are a delicate shade of grey and stained . The only room make up is the beds made -the bathroom has not been cleaned in 5 days . The staff are offhand and unhelpful at reception .The breakfast buffet is ok if you get there early before the food has been sitting for 4 hours or so . .Pity the fruit wasn't fresh and more variety ..

Day 14: After finally arriving in Phuket at around 5.30pm we caught a shuttle bus into town which we thought would take 30mins or so from the airport. 2 and a half hours later we finally arrived at what we thought was going to be our normal 3 star hotel but turned out to be a pretty decent resort which was definitely one of the best we have stayed …
Video Girl and Battery Boy decided to leave the Siam Supper Club when he started speaking to a real estate agent named Ihsane, from Belgium when she tried to sell him a condo in Phuket.
Video Girl conveniently dropped Ihsane's business card in the bin as they walked out to their waiting car and returned to the resort.
As they walked into their villa Battery Boy said, "Would you like to have a swim before we go to bed?"
... for a few days still. Alex also bought me back another coconut in the afternoon which is completely my new favourite thing!! Late afternoon we went for a drive on our moped following Simon on his so that we got a bit more practice. We went up to a viewpoint with an amazing view of the beaches and on the way up saw the elephants that you can ride! The drive was very hilly and had loads of twists and turns so I had a few more wobbles but it's just ...
... usual kind of tuk-tuk, ie the three-wheeled kind you find in India. In Phuket a tuk-tuk is basically a very small Suzuki van with bench seats laid longitudinally in the back and a doorway cut into the metal. No belts. Watching Patong disappear rapidly in a haze of headlights and engine noise, I was reminded of nights back home tearing around country roads in a high-revving 875cc Hillman Imp. The Suzuki really was tiny but the driver hustled it along at a good pace.
