I ended up in Patong Bay, a combination of all things crazy. It's truly the city that never sleeps with busy streets, shops, bars, anything and everything. My first day I was walking back to my hotel and got caught in a type of rainstorm so powerful I thought the world was coming to an end. I ran to the closest cover while it downpour ensued. I …
Today we travel to Phuket! Due to having so many problems with the last time we went on an aeroplane we decided to get up extra early in case of any problems, thank god we did. We got to the airport with no problems the taxi didn’t rip us off and we got there really quickly. When we went to the screen to look for our flight …

Sunday rolled around and I had to say goodbye to Laos. I did one farewell walk around the city and through the morning market before climbing into the back of a tuk-tuk and heading off to the quaint airport. I was able to better appreciate the location of the airport with a few hours to kill waiting for my return flight to Bangkok. It indeed was a …

Historical Traveler Reviews The Royal Paradise Hotel Patong
I went to Phuket last week with my friend.And I stayed at The Royal Paradise Hotel for b5 days. Excellent service. Good value. LOVE the view from my room.. it was superior room, Paradise Wing.
I stayed here recently in April 06 in Deluxe room Royal Wing. Gorgeous room...great service and excellent value for money. Good location for night life entertainment...close to Patong beach. Oh!...the spa is great too.
It was the third 4* hotel in thailand I have stayed in. I stayed in the new wing for two weeks. It had all the normal standards I expect. Two men on the entrance 24hrs a day ect. Room service was fine. Other than I would like to try other hotels, I would be happy to stay there again. My only down comment is that it is at the end of a rd full of gay bars. I am not gay and it was not intimidating, but I might not of liked it with a young family.
Just returned last night, terrible hotel compared to the one i stayed when i first visit to Phuket. Surprised by the rating of getting 3/4 * hotel...should rate it down below 1! Let me tell u the reasons why...
Stayed for three nights . The rooms in the new Paradise wing are very new (So new thet they were still finishing off and some noise was heard from above) with stunning modern bathrooms .I would really advise that you pay the extra few baht for these rooms as the main hotel is looking a bit dated now . Breakfast was OK but the hot food was always only lukewarm.
Good hotel, great value for money
I have just completed a two week stay at the Royal Paradise Hotel. My room was spacious, well appointed, and comfortable, with a great view of Patong Beach (I was on the 21st floor.) I didn't eat at any of the hotel restaurants, so I can't vouch for them. I can testify, though, that the service I received was polite and efficient, and I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. A tip: I found very significantly discounted prices for the hotel at an online booking service.
Good luck if you have to deal with this hotel. We were booked to stay there right after the tsunami hit in Thailand. Of course, we did not want to go to the area at that devastating time and asked to get a refund. According to my travel agent, she had no trouble getting a refund from any hotel in the area and we are the only ones still battling. After much cajoling, they finally agreed to refund all but 5% of the costs and this has yet to be refunded, six weeks after the disaster. Emails go unanswered and the credit card company is still in the fray. Save yourself a potential headache and avoid this hotel.
