Will return again.
This was our second time at the Horizon & like the first we had a Ball. Food first class, staff the best, we will return in a year or two for sure. Thank you all ance again. Reg & Valerie Mills Western Auatralia.
I loved the horizon! the place looks fantastic, the food at the baluchi is exceptional and the staff are the friendliest and most helpful i've encountered. having forked out a fortune for a crummy little place in miami earlier this year i was a bit dubious because of the rates here. needless to say i pleasantly surprised by the horizon. I would happily go back and recommend it to anyone.
Great, but construction next door
There is contruction for a hotel ongoing right next door, so exercise caution in booking this hotel. Although the ammenities are excellent, and the staff generally helpful, took me 2 days to finally switch my room during my stay, but even after moving more to the back of the hotel can still hear the constuction inside my room, and it wouldn't be such a big deal but they continue on late into the night, sometimes 9 or 10pm. Even relaxing by the pool you can hear it, so going to the beach is the only way to avoid it.
Terriffic place to stay
We and our two best friends had 8 great nights a week ago in this almost hidden hotel yet virtually opposite the beach in the center of patong beach. It is very quiet and cosy with big rooms, both ours on the 1st floor overlooking one of two pools. It has obviously had major work in the past few months since the disaster. So everything is new and clean. All the staff were very friendly and obliging and helped us whenever we needed something. Breakfast was included for us and was very good. The standard of food in the main (of 2) restaurants was not to our liking and we found much better quality at a lower price within a couple of minutes walk outside of the hotel, and this was the only thing to let it down a bit , for us anyway. We travelled on an upgraded package and would definately go back there again.
LOVED THE HORIZON HOTEL
Stayed at the Horizon for 7 days in November 2004. Beautiful hotel and very friendly staff. Rooms very immaculate, cleaned daily. Peaceful yet entertaining and like your own little peace of paradise. Would reccommend anyone to stay there if your in for a cheap yet great holiday.
My partner and i had a fantastic holiday at Horizon Beach Hotel, Patong Beach in october. The people are so friendly, standards are exceptional in the hotel the whole area was so magical and romantic. We are so saddened by what happened on december 26th although we realise there was a lot of damage and like alot of other tourists who have been to thailand know that phuket and other areas will be up and running again. Whilst we were staying at Horizon Beach we used the massage parlour quite a few times we do hope the ladies there are safe. We also made friends with Atit who works in reception we hope he is safe along with the rest of the staff. May we wish you good luck on your reopening. We shall be back to Phuket in November 2005.
My wife & I stayed in your Hotel for 14 days in Sept.2002 & had a wonderful time. We hope! to be able to return in Sept/Oct. this year if all goes well with the re-building of Phuket etc. we will keep in contact with our travel agent who should be up to date with everything.
Wishing you all the very best of heath & luck, & hoping to be with you all soon.
Regards & best wishers Mr. Mrs Reg & Valerie Mills
Enjoyed the Horizon Beach Hotel
My Husband myself and 3 friends stayed at the Horizon Beach Hotel in November. The staff were very friendly plus we had a beautiful buffet breakfast every day. The rooms were excellent . We were central to everything + beach 2 min walk. Overall very impressive.
For the price very good
Staying at the Horizon Beach for the second time we found it to be just as good as our first stay in 2002.
Staff are very friendly and keen to assist.
Pools are good and the hotel is in a great location.
This is the second time i have been to this hotel and i think it is great. The rooms are large and serviced daily. 2 bottles of water were left each day and 2 beach towels. The buffet breakfast was also good value as it was included in the price. 2 good sized pools are on premises and the beach is just across the street so you can select one or the other very easily. Not a noisy hotel and patrons were very friendly, a gym and creche are also available I found everything to my liking and would defenitly go back again

... eating and drinking. At one point I had to use the bathroom, and that experience was a hoot! Our server saw me get up and came over. He knew what I was looking for without any words spoken, the next thing I know I am following him through a maze of vendors and bars. The bathroom was a tiny opening in a wall that led to a lady sitting at a table, he gave her money and she gave him toilet paper for me. Not the nicest place to ...
... no paperwork, no nothing. Just take the keys and go, pay when you get back or up front your choice. Drop the car off with the key locked inside and put the money under the mat. No worries! Almost everything we have experienced so far has been so different than Australia. Obviously the cost of everything is so much cheaper than Australia (Ginette and I had an amazing Thai lunch for $3 for both of us) but its also that these societies just have a different approach to risk. ...
... so it worked out just fine, but it was a tense moment.
The minibuses drop off along the main road a few kilometers from the airport, and as we started heading that way, a family was kind enough to take us to our hostel near the airport for us. The hostel was fine, and we got through to our gates without further incident. Emily and I couldn't get on the same flights, so we parted ways for the trip home, where we would meet up again in San ...
... to find in a day care centre, they served us up chicken curry and rice and also a big bowl of herbs, veggies, dried fish, chili's that you would just help yourself to on the table. The food was delicious the setting and the atmosphere sitting there was something else, Rats were running around the floor picking up any scraps as they fell from tables, cars and motorbikes were screaming past and all the locals seemed so happy just sitting around with their families eating beautiful ...
