Great! Taxi from airport is 900 baht and taxis into town/other popular beaches are round 500 one way. Service is very nice but there is a slight language barrier. Right on the beach and good (semi-overpriced food)... not much else you can ask for!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"resort? More like motel"
we only stayed two nights and that was more than enough. The airport/hotel shuttle service they offer is the same price as taking a taxi, so right off our reasoning for booking this hotel was slightly off putting. It basically feels like staying at an overpriced motel. While the beach is quite nice and the breakfast buffet is good, the overall feel […] seems run down, outdated and a little sad. The rooms have awful sound proofing and ours looked out onto a fairly busy road. The clientele here seems to be older people and families. There are several restaurants along the beach but the food is not that great at all. Overall, unless you're getting a great deal (maybe say $60 or under) I'd keep looking for other hotels.

Great staff, really quiet, building needs updated and minor repairsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cool place, right on beach."
Right on the beach, breakfast was awesome, and water was beautiful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a very nice time at this place. Our room was a few feet away from the ocean. Very clean. Staff was very friendly. Loved the pool. Breakfast was tasty and lots of choices. We didn't eat dinner there much. There are a couple of restaurants right next to the hotel. You can walk to them on the beach and they are significantly cheaper. We ate lunch […] and dinner there every day and for 2 people it costs between $8-$12 total. Would definitely stay at this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Super comfortable, it's on the beach, breakfast was good. Also some really good food options right next door on the beach. it's a little out of town... cabs are expensive, so rent a car at the airport and you'll breakeven and have more freedomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet, Beautiful and on the Beach!"
Hotel was beautiful. Right on the beach! Small hotel and very quiet. Off the beaten track a bit so you as long as you don't mind quiet - perfect. Rooms were large - bathrooms were great. Mini fridge and safe in our room. Breakfast was included in price - large choice of foods. Restaurant (with service on the beach) on site as well as other restaurants […] on the beach for other meal options. Beach chairs on the beach are also available. Infinity pool if you don't want the ocean. Down side - beds were a bit hard. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Everything you need for a relaxing holiday"
We had a lovely couple of weeks in Panwa. Great place to go if you want everything you need in one place. Taxis into town can become expensive at around $30 for a round trip.. If you simply want to relax by the pool or beach and eat the local food( although the hotel menu has western option) both in the hotel and at the great little beach bars and restaurants...then […] this is the place for you..

"Exactly as it said it was"
We got a great deal for the Christmas break. Pictures and reviews seemed to good to be true but it is exactly as described. Great beachside local shops and restaurant if you dint want to eat at resort. Resort is out if the way but there are taxis or hotel cars. Everything is very very laid back. Would stay again for a do nothing holiday and catch up […] with friends the perfect week. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel and amazing staff"
I chose the hotel as it was right next to the beach. The staff were amazing. We have a baby and sometimes we needed child care so we could have time to do some activities. It was arranged and staff went out of our way to make sure that we were comfortable. The hotel itself was lovely and we will definitely be returning within the year.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is a bit dated. Staffs at the check in was OK but too lazy to offer a customer welcome drink! because it run out of a water to make a drink! Room is clean breakfast is so so. Will not stay there again because it is far from the action. If you like quiet then go for it! I will stay near Karon beach next time!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Panwa Beach Resort - lovely"
Loved it all as it was a last-minute booking and actually just what we wanted. A little remote for some maybe, but not a problem as far as we were concerned as just wanted a few days total R & R.

Good hotel close to beach but breakfast staff not at all friendly actually found there manner quite rude.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We would have returned, except for..."
We generally had a good stay at the hotel. It's on a quiet area of the island with a good beach when the tide is high. We enjoyed the pool a lot. We had some problems with our room safe which they sorted out. Expensive prices at the resort, but with a few inexpensive restaurants on the beach. However, we won't be going back as they tried to double […] charge us for the taxi that brought us to the resort at check out. We paid the older driver directly 1000 baht which included a 100 baht tip. He acted as though he had only received 100 baht from us. They presented us with an unsigned charge slip for the taxi. I explained the situation, but they still claimed I owed them money. Based on a few other things (luggage that was delivered late to the hotel which staff seemed unaware of until airport people spoke with them on the phone, misquoted prices for the breakfast, being told different things on whether to pay shuttle drivers directly or not ) it's hard to say if this was staff incompetence or them trying to get extra money. Either way it's unacceptable. Too bad. I would have liked to go back there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Fantastic Staff BUT..........."
We loved the resort and staff. The only problem for us was there should have been a warning about the rocks that were hidden on the beach. Very sharp. We also had problems with our tv channels. They never got it fixed the 8 days we were there. The resturant staff were the best!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Calm and romantic"
The resort is really good but somewhere aging also.Situated at calm and serene place, far from the city noise, having their private beach, very good and spacious rooms with high standard facilities inside, very supportive and friendly staff. If you are looking for a place in the middle of the city and with all the activities nearby, then this is not […] that place, this is more for couples who wanna spend some quality time in their own space. We as a couple really liked the place and found it complete value for money. Thanks. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great getaway spot with incredible views!"
Was an excellent resort to stay at if you are trying to get away from the crowds, but still be able to enjoy your stay. Perfect location with allot of scenic views. You could even see the big Buddha from the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Panwa Beach Resort is great!"
Great location, right on a pretty good beach, lovely sand, swimming good when tides are in. Breakfast good. Pool lovely and whole hotel gives a great impression. Good, quality hotel. Location is a bit remote, but that is a good thing. Two great restaurants literally on the beach, which are great. Favourite is On The Beach. Two massage places as well […] and a pancake place. All on the sand, you can watch the sunset or listen to the waves as you get a massage. Cape Panwa is a 5 min drive and has more restaurants and bars, plus a Indian restaurant which has the best Indian we've ever eaten. Hotel offers transfers to Phuket Town and to the night markets on Sat and Sun nights. Also has a tour desk offering visits to Phi Phi and James Bond Islands, including caves and elephant rides, etc. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"In the middle of nowhere"
Everything is okay, but... location. Hotel is far away. There is nothing, what you can reach by walk. Taxi from airport to Panwa Beach Resort cost same as one night in hotel. Overpriced breakfest. Problems with wifi. They gave me password for using wifi in room, but i couldnt get through. Nice beach, good for children.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"It doesnt deserve four stars."
It doesnt deserve 4 stars. Old furnitures in the room, they dont clean under the bed, kid's club room is full of scattered toys and other items. Beach is nice but sea is so shallow and full of rocks. Staff was nice but I wouldnt recommend this hotel to my friend as a four star hotel. You dont get what you pay for.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Panwa Beach Resort Phuket Dear Guests, Thank you for your review and I am sorry to read that the hotel was not to your taste. Please kindly note that we have started some room renovations. Kids club was full of scattered toys, probably children have played there before. When is the low tide you can see the rock, however at high tide it's perfect for swimming and more importantly you can swim year round as we are protected from the monsoon wind (May to October). Again thank you for your comments. With kind regards, Claude Sauter General Manager Panwa Beach Resort, Phuket
"Seniors loved it!"
We are a senior (65ish) couple who stayed at Panwa Beach Resort for 25 days in Jan/Feb13. We had great time and enjoyed the hotel. It is far from the "action" which suited us fine. Most guests were couples, ranging from newly-weds to seniors in their 80's. A few families with small children also had fun on the beach and in the pool. The staff were friendly, […] helpful and accommodating. Hotel food was good, but a little pricey. We had a rental car (not for the faint of heart!), so we ate out often. 2 beach restaurants were very close and more economical, also a great place to meet people from the many yachts parked in the bay. The hotel has only stairs so guests have to be able-bodied to get around. The beach is sandy, but at low tide rocks are exposed making swimming trickier. Some of our photos are from our 3rd floor balcony, some from other parts of the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Superb. Marvellous. Outstanding"
The hotel was in a very quiet area and absolutely superb. The staff were lovely, friendly and very helpful. The room was excellent and views of beach fabulous. I would thoroughly recommend it for a quiet, peaceful stay. The surroundings are ideal and real. They provide shuttles to the neighbouring towns if needed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is a little way out, but this was just what we were looking for, it does have everything you need and is in a fantastic position, right on the beach, with fantastic gardens.The rooms are big, spotless and very well furnished.The breakfast was fantastic, and the dining room is overlooking the pool and beach, wish we were still there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Whillst out of way that is part of the attraction the hotel, there is ample transport readily available. The grounds are very well maintained and the staff are very courteous and helpful. My partner and l had 2 wonderful weeks and Panwa Beach is definitely on the agenda for a return visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms could do with renovation. Public spaces are pleasant and service from staff is good. The beach restaurant provides a break from thai food if you're staying for a long time. Best thai food was from the beach restaurants on the beach nextdoor. Ideal for a quiet holiday to Phuket as it's a bit out of the way from the lively towns. I felt that the […] price should have been £20 less per night. Overall 3* is fair for this hotel. We enjoyed our stay here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nothing else nearby...."
Wasted 3 nights of our holidays by staying at this property. Too far from city or potong area. Every time you need to pay exorbitant price for going to city or any other leisure trip and almost 1 hour extra travelling both side. Since there is no other option for travelling, hotel travel desk charge almost 2-3 times of the normal rate. I won't suggest […] any body to stay in this hotel....

"Good value for money"
Overall the hotel is pretty good value for money. The breakfast was fabulous and the location good if you are looking for a quiet spot in Phuket, away from the crowds. The beach is quite nice and shady and not busy, which is great. The only annoying thing was that our final bill was totally incorrect as they tried to charge me twice for the cab service […] from the airport and hadn't accounted for the credit they charged us when we checked-in and as I questioned the bill, it took quite a while until it was confirmed that I was correct even though my receipt showed that it was paid already. The other thing I didn't like is that they charged for the water in the fridge. This was the only hotel that charged for the water, which is a bit off a rip off. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely beach but far removed and a bit rundown"
The service was pretty decent, the beach was very nice--it's in a bay, so the calm water was lovely. The place was clean and nice, good food, but pretty remote from anything so not many options for food. If you want very, very quiet, then this is your place. The rooms have very old TVs, but they do have some cable, only a few channels in English though. […] The furniture is sort of old and the mattress was as hard as a ROCK. Literally, the most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept in. They did help by adding a small extra top-cover, but it was still very, very hard. This place was decent but not great. Overall 3/5.

Olimme toisen kerran samassa hotellissa ja luultavasti menemme kolmannenkin kerran. Uimaranta on hyvä nousuveden aikaan, laskuveden aikaan käytetään uima-allasta. Aurinkotuoleja on riittävästi. Lähistöllä on 2 edullista ravintolaa, kaupoille lähtöön tarvitaan taksia. Klo 22 jälkeen alueella on täysin hiljaista ja muutenkin paikka on hyvin rauhallinen.

"Rekomenderas för en romantisk vecka"
Ett trevligt hotell med oerhört trevlig personal. En lugn och härlig omgivning med en oerhört fin utsikt. Pool området var bra med ett pingisbord som man kunde låna gratis. Stranden kändes exklusiv med många krabbor och spindlar. Havets grund var det enda negativa då det bestod av mycket lera och stora stenar. Oerhört genuina restauranger på stranden […] under kvällarna. Kvällsmat vid stranden känns precis som att man är på en öde ö mitt ute i havet. Rekomenderas för en lugn vecka! Vill man hitta på något extra någon dag så kan man hyra scooter från hotellet för en billig peng. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Отель в принципе не плохой, но совершенно нет моря. Отлив такой, что выражение "море по колено" нужно воспринимать буквально. И так вот по колено в воде можно идти практически до места, где пришвартованы катера и лодки. Очень плохая прибрежная полоса, да и сам пляж. Мало того, что очень много больших и маленьких кораллов, так еще и полно битого стекла […] от бутылок, банок и т.д. Босиком НЕ ХОДИЛИ-ОПАСНО. Еще большой минус - наличие китайцев и казахов. Они заезжают партиями( или семьями), стоит жуткий гомон. И те, и другие очень непосредственны. Вообще не обращают внимания, что помимо них есть еще люди в отеле. Вся разница в том, что одни гомонят на китайском, а другие на русском, но с плохим произношением. До этого мы всегда отдыхали на Самуи,разница феноменальная. Второй раз на Пхукет уже не хочется. Но в принципе, людям, которые не обращают внимания на такие детали, как много шума и отсутствие нормального моря, могу посоветовать этот отель. Достаточно чисто, убирались каждый день, вполне адекватные завтраки, обедать и ужинать можно в соседних прибрежных ресторанчиках: вкусно, быстро и дешево. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
