Big rooms, clean, staff helpful. As a party of 7 we stayed in Dorm room and deluxe double with an extra bed. This hotel is ageing, but gracefully. Facilities are good, location in Phuket town fine. We would happily stay here again.

In the late afternoon, I went for a swim and watched the sunset from the ...
... 8 hours. Loved traversing the country side of Thailand though.
We were running late - Thai time - and we started to worry. We asked the attendant whether there was more than one stop in Phuket - was there one near the airport. We knew there wasn't - and that we would cruise right by the the airport and that the bus station was 30 minutes further - then we'd have to find transport 30 minutes back to the airport. It ...
... ended up choosing this great Mexican restaurant. Torturous as I couldn't eat any of it. Nachos, quesadillas and hot chips for me. 2 x free margaritas for Stu. It was a lovely night sitting out on the balcony watching the sun go down. After a quick cheeky ice cream for Stu and Zoe on the way home we all went to bed for an early night. Stu of course had to wait up for the stupid washing to finish drying but I was sound asleep early - I needed ...
