... high schoolers in the US wouldn't be able to pass these tests, let alone an adult).
I had wonderful practice conversations with a beautiful young Thai, Muslim woman who works on a marketing team that sells and rents high end condos in Phuket. It was interesting to be able to teach her some real estate concepts (mortgage rates, time share, occupancy, resale value, amenities).
We also talked about boyfriends. ...
Went upto pool on roof, but it was a bit boring so we decided to go down Panwa beach, swam out to the jetty, snorkelled and sunbathed. Was there most of the day. Headed back to the hotel to get ready to go for a meal ranked no1 for Cape Panwa, was just by our hotel, and definately worth going, really nice ...
... was like stepping onto another planet. After the dirt and grime of India with very little shopping areas you can call nice. To step off into a modern clean glitzy airport was amazing. It was nice to see Starbucks, KFC, McDonnalds all things we associate with home. It was a short stop of just 4 hours so we grab something to eat then check in again. This for us ...
Now I do realize the old adage of early to bed early to rise but did I have to take it to such extremes 1.30 is no time to be bright eyed and bushy tailed. But at least I put it to good use and loaded my photos updated Facebook and finished my book can't wait for the 2nd hunger game movie to come out. I have decided Im allergic to snorkeling as I've come out in a itchy rash only on my ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Laguna Beach Resort Thalang
The Laguna Beach Resort is one of five hotels that flank the three lagoons in this 3km long upscale hotel complex on Bang Tao bay. (The other hotels are the Dusit, Sheraton, the upscale Banyan Tree and the poor cousin Allemanda.)
Great holiday with teenagers
What a great hotel. Stayed for the last week in September with 3 teenagers, 2 eighteen year olds found plenty to do. The 14 year old quickly found others his age and spent all his time with them. The staff were so friendly and helpful, rooms great (worth getting the rooms with beach views).
Lots of cheap seafood restaurants on the beach near the hotel, but the hotels food prices were still reasonable.
Pool area with waterslide a great bonus. Excellent band at night in the bar
Quality staff and great place for families.
My family and I stayed here the last two weeks of August 2005 and we couldn't have had a better time. The staff were extremely friendly the facilities were great and the kids club a godsend.
Fantastic value for money, great freindly service, nice rooms, lovely people, great facilities what more can you ask for.
We are returning here next year for sure, the first time we will have revisited any place and int the last 4 years we have been to Mauritius, Mexico, Malaysia and here, speaks volumes.
We have just returned from a week here and had a great time. The check in was very efficient, you are greeted with a drink, cold towel and presented with a small flower garland. The rooms in my opinion need a bit of TLC especially the bathroom which was a bit grubby. However, the relaxing tranquillity of the place and the friendliness of all the Thai people, whether in the hotel or the beach huts make you soon overlook these small things.
Just spent 8 nights (2-10 June) at Laguna Beach Resort, one of 5 resorts in the Laguna Beach area.
We went in the summer holidays with our three children aged 4- 15 and we all had such a special and exceptional time there. No it is not cheap to get there but it is once you are there .
I stayed for 2 weeks at the Laguna Resort on Phuket. It was very quiet - but that's the holiday I wanted. I did a few trips around the island and if you want lively - then Patong is the place I must say that Phuket is a lovely island and the weather (I went in February) was 35C - brilliant. It was a bit humid but that's expected and there were surprisingly few mosquitoes. But if sunning yourself isn't your thing there is absolutely lots to do on Phuket so you'll never be bored - from elephant rides to visiting the islands (the James Bond Island trip is essential). The people are so nice and the food is gorgeous and reasonably priced. The only expensive thing is wine. 2 years ago I went to Barbados and I have to say Phuket beats it hands down. It is like having a vacation in a really different culture that has retained its authenticity, but with all the mod cons at hand. A great place - but next time I'll try staying in Patong and see if I can keep up.
Wasn't the best
The main fault was everyone coming to use the pools here from every other hotel in the bay. The location was superb, the staff couldn't do enough for us-so friendly. Great for the kids, they loved the elephant(hotel pet). For those wanting the ultimate in luxury try the Banyan Tree, this place is so tranquil and luxurious.
Laguna Beach Resort was nice but wasn't the best.
One of my friend has adviced me Laguna Beach Resort, but I think I won't... We are totally dissapointed with he things that we faced during our stay... At first day, as we entered the deluxe room of the hotel, we found a watermelon seed in one of the white unused towels, we found an underwear of an unknown person in on of the drawers in the room... Other than these even though we asked for a pair of slippers, we received them after a 5-hour-period when we called them again... Above all the lady who brought the slippers came into the room without asking our permission as if she is one of our neighbour or a close friend... When all the problems written above were explained to the guest relations, we received a wonderful basket of fruits BUT two black dotted napkins accompanying it... All of these might be very slight problems but if you stay in a 5-star-deluxe holiday resort you have the right to ask for those details... 2-star hotel can also serve you the bed, the room and an average service but details make the difference between a five and a 2 star... Here we are talking about a 5 star deluxe hotel having insects in the room... Overall the service was poor and the reception was confusing but Phuket itself was marvellous...
We have travelled to many places around the world with our children but this is the hotel they like the best. The reason is that it has the best childrens club and activities we have ever encountered bar none. The club has its own clubhouse and swimming pool plus a whole raft of youth leaders who take the kids and put on loads of activities - 1 every 45 minutes - throughout the day to keep them interested. Not just cooped up with a video, really good things. They even brought a little elephant in on some days, they went swimming, they did crafts, treasure hunts, beach games, exploring, temples. It was really great. The hotel is beautiful - liike a lost city from Indiana Jones. The swimming pools are all like that - sort of themed and you can swim through tunnels and arches. There is also a fantastic adult activity programme - all included. Swimming lessons, sailing lessons, windsurfing, art, parasailing, tennis.... The rooms were large and well furnished and you had a large patio with a day bed on it. The bathroom was great with a shower and a sunken bath - more temple theming. There were a number of restaurants but you could easily walk down the beach to some local ones.
