This hotel is fantastic. I was traveling to Thailand for my 21st Birthday and had heard great reviews about this hotel.
I traveled with my boyfriend and another couple, on our arrival the other couple were put downstairs and us upstairs. there room was a lot better and I was a little upset that they had the better room and it was my birthday. I went and told reception and without any hassle they changed us to a downstairs room that was also set up for a honeymoon and it was lovely.
The pool, the staff, the service were wonderful I could not fault if I wanted to. Right in the middle of all the action, 10 minutes to the beach, 5 to Bangala night strip.
This hotel is great if your looking for something very central, great service and a really nice hotel, looks better than a lot of other 3 star hotels in Patong :)
The only advise I have to make your stay a little better ask for a downstairs room, which have a separate rainforest shower, the upstairs rooms have the shower and toilet together and the shower Is not great.

Today actually started with a gym session believe it or not, it felt like I'd completed the 1000 steps when I finished. This morning we had a activity booked in for 10am, we were off to the Patong Zip Line (flying fox). There were 5 of us in total, 3 guys from Paris and the sisters. We all took the smaller course which consisted of 10 zip lines, 4 abseils and 3 sky bridge walks. The first few goes on the zip line were quite scary but then it was heaps of ...
Caught shuttle in to Patong - raining quite heavily but managed with umbrella to stay dry. However - we are not disprins so we won't dissolve. Checked out markets - and did some haggling for bargains. Ate at Mr Goods - soup for $7-good value. Had the Thai massage in accommodation package - omg it hurt!! I guess I needed loosening up. One of the attractions is Bangla Rd - which definitely comes to life at night. You ...
... 5 drug induced hrs to which I lost feeling about 20mins into the flight - discovered that the Mansells are a very plucky team smuggling water onto planes, skipping customs queues.... A law unto themselves! After arriving at Adelaide airport we started the mad dash to get Emma and Zoe to their respective productions and us home to literally mountains of washing. I had never felt so tired in my life (well except for the first 6 months of Zoe's existence). And that my friends is a ...
05:00 - We checked out of our hostel at about 11:00 and headed to Patong, which we heard is the place to be in Phuket. We found an awesome backpackers hostel right on the beach front and close to the main strip. After checking in we went to the beach with the Canadians, which was rammed with tourists. After eating we went back to the hostel and just chilled and played cards with a group ...
... next to a bar and a pancake seller. it was much quieter here but still quite busy. We chilled, dosed and read and without moving we feasted on King Prawns, corn on the cob, breaded chicken and fresh fruit shakes. The beach hawkers were all characters and the food was so good. Peanut butter and Nutella pancake completed the food frenzy. Topless sunbathing isn't allowed and modesty is ...
