"The happiest hotel in Phuket"
This is our fourth stay at the alpina and we will be staying again.This hotel is the best value for money we have stayed in.The staff would have to be the friendliest and most helpful we have ever had in a hotel.being on flat ground and not up a hill,being able to walk straight outside to decent restaurants,massage,a7/11,taxis and shops makes it so […] accessible for all our needs. Shuttle every hour to the beach where they have dedicated alpina sun loungers and umbrellas,even a pool boy to look after you.fabulous swimming pool which is 1.7 meters deep and the best pool access rooms I have stayed in.Good breakfast every morning and a cocktail party once a week.Kata beach is a lovely area not too quiet but worlds away from the hustle and bustle of Patong .Management at this hotel are doing it right and I commend them on giving us a home away from home.Thank you for another wonderful stay.

"Alpina Phuket Nalina review April 2013"
The hotel is located approx 1 hour from the airport. We organised transfer from the airport to the hotel directly through the hotel without incident. They were on time. The driver was pleasant and courteous. The hotel was ready for our arrival and check in went without incident. The room and pool were both clean. Staff were helpful, efficient, and […] pleasant. The hotel has a tour desk, massage and spa centre, and taxi service. There are tuk tuks and taxis directly outside the hotel which are also easily accessible. Buffet breakfast was excellent and food delicious. Air conditioning worked perfectly. We didn't have too many issues with language. We had a pool villa. I loved the fact we could open the balcony door and access the pool directly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A great little hotel with value and friendly staff"
I booked and travelled with a friend to this hotel for 7 nights. In general I was happy with the hotel, the staff and amenities, although it was my first visit to Phuket and if I went back I'd probably stay somewhere closer to Patong. The buffet breakfast was great, plenty of food, friendly staff and if you get it included in your deal it's even better […] value. It was a little out of the way of the action. It is a family hotel and we found it quiet at night. Having spent 7 nights there I wouldn't stay any longer than that. The hotel didn't make it clear that there was a cocktail evening and we were disappointed that we missed out. Food was good, very well presented, good value and tasty. If you're looking for an above average budget, friendly hotel stay here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Loved the hotel and location. Staff were fabulous apart from at morning breakfast buffet. Had to pour own tea coffee in the end and food was probably suitable for Europeans but not Australians who expect a more American breakfast. Would recommend spending a bit extrA to get a room with adjoining pool access. That was fabulous.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Average Hotel ,"
it is an average Hotel, Swimming pool is big and enough chairs to relax by the pool. Location is not very good, there are few stores and restaurants around but if you want little more options, you need to walk for 20 to 30 min or take a cab. (we walked) Food inside the Hotel was good. but you have lots of options outside. we only had breakfast and couple […] of times ordered room service, other time we ate out.

Perfect, "escape from it all" location. Beautiful surroundings. The LARGST outdoor swimming pool I have every enjoyed. Great SPA facilities - lovely accommodation - recommend the option for direct pool access from our room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A great place to stay while in Phuket"
Great hotel. Nice decor. Beautiful well maintained grounds. Lovely large pool. Staff very friendly. Tour services offered at hotel lobby. Lots of shopping and restaurants nearby. Free shuttle to the beach hourly. Relaxing atmosphere. Has spa facilities. Buffet breakfast was very good with a large selection of dishes.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic resort & room layout!"
The resort layout is superb, all rooms centred around the pool. The balconies are fantastic to laze and relax all day long, more so for the ground floor rooms with direct access to dip pool at the balcony. Beach towels are also placed direct in the bath. There were some minuses too...bath water running yellow for the initial few minutes...no housekeeping […] on the 1st day and we only got back after 12midnight, the reception aren't able to bring us fresh towels...jacuzzi tub not functioning...dresser chair sandy. The minuses are still liveable, will be back to stay again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very nice resort with friendly staff. No complaints at all and we enjoyed all aspects of the resort.Genuine Expedia guest review
We felt a little unwelcome during our stay. The cleaning staff were excellent, but reception and bar staff average. The Internet connection was slow and at times non existent. The resort was ok but looking a little tired in areas.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good for a week"
Stayed in the hotel for a week. Ok location but would be great if it was closer to the beach. The rooms are spotless and the beds are hard but huge. The buffet breakfast was a great way start the day. There is a taxi stand out the front making it easy to get anywhere in Phuket. Having a pool access room was great. My wife really enjoyed spa. Negatives: […] The staff service is poor, internet works on and off and the tv reception is shocking. Also, no hair dryer in rooms. As with most other reviews 3 star accommodation. So if you can get the hotel at a good price it's well worth a visit. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel but def request a pool side room."
We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and found the overall quality of the hotel to be good. The cleanliness and comfort of the rooms are ok. The hotel is located near Kata beach ( about 15/20 mins walk) and there is a shuttle bus that transfers guests to the beach every hour. I would def recommed a pool side room if I was to stay again as we were located […] on level 4 with no pool access and limited view. Also the WiFi was very poor as we were so far away from reception. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet spot to stay"
The hotel was beautiful and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We got the room with breakfast buffet included and found that by the end of our stay (7 days) we were over the food because it was basically the same items every morning. It was very well priced and I would recommend it to people if they wish to be a little bit away from the hustle […] and bustle. It is a fair walk to the beach and about a 20 minute drive from the night markets and the main shopping centre. So we spent a fair bit on taxis and tuk tuks. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better Improvement needed"
The place is generally nice. The room is spacious and well equipped. But the Wifi is terriably slow and television channels so few that even local channels are not available.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value and quality"
Overall - great. My wife and I had a swim-up room which was a boon. Beds are rather hard but we got used to them. Cheap food across the road. Quiet and we almost had the large pool to ourselves! Not close to beach but free hourly transit service and free sun loungers/umbrellas. Our children and we enjoyed the free breakfast and wi-fi.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was really a good experience with this hotel and staff. The location and area is too good, the only thing is its too far from airport.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for Families"
Family of six, stayed 10 nights. We stayed in three Nalina Classic rooms. Rooms were in excellent order, clean and air conditioning worked very well. The pool is excellent and the fitness room well-equipped. We enjoyed the Buffet Breakfast each morning; no complaints. The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the beach, and Kata Square. Shuttle bus to beach […] provided, but was sometimes hard to catch - seemed to be a loose schedule. Free WIFI is next to useless, except around 3 am!!! Overall we enjoyed our stay at Alpina immensely and would happily recommend it to families. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovey hotel for all"
The hotel is quite big and our room was towards the back so it was a bit far especially from breakfast in the mornings. There was some building work opposite which created some noise and the temporary accommodation they have built for the workers isn't the most scenic view! Having said that we were really pleased with our stay. The food was great and […] not too expensive. The pool was lovely but didn't catch the sun in the afternoon. There was a free bus to the beach which took about 5 minutes. Beach is awesome, clean tidy and stunning. The drinks reception on the Thursday evening was a nice touch. Breakfast was very nice. We used the hotel taxi service to collect us from the airport, took the stress away and was good value. We also used the lady in reception to book our day trips, she was very helpful. Overall a lovely hotel in a really good area for couples and families Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, great facilities, great relaxation"
This resort complex is in an excellent location and has all you need for a great holiday. The staff are helpful and the services make for a lovely lot of options. We paid for the basic Classic room and were VERY pleased - it was an excellent size and a great bathroom. The weekly Welcome Cocktail evening was a lovely touch. The on-site Gaia Spa is very […] good and just out of the door is a street with the Thai massage services at great local prices. Like all the hotels at Kata beach, you are not on the beach but the hourly shuttle bus works well and the hotels spot on the beach is just excellent Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely pool area"
The pool was a lovely area its just a shame that it doesnt open until 10am and closes again at 7pm. You couldnt get pool towels before even on request. We had 3 people staying in our but everyday i had to call down to the office to get a third bath towel. The hotel from the street view needed a good paint and to be renovated but once you are thru the […] lobby it was quite nice. Its in a great location with only a short walk to the beach. The staff spoke great english and i had no trouble explaining things. Do not stay here if you need internet access. The wifi was constantly down and the only place you could get a decent signal was the foyer. Not convinient for a supposed 4.5 start hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Pool acces room was a lifestyle, started in building 4... Very dated/run down. Helpful staff moved us to building 3 without hesitation, much better location and updated facilities. Great location if you don't want to be in the main crowd at Patong. We hire scooters and only a short ride to anywhere...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Too good to miss this place!!!"
We had a wonderful time, staff were fantastic, from cleaning through to Managers. Meals at resort superb. Pool was a joy. No trouble in recommending at all. Peaceful away from hustle of Patong, excellent for family's..We will be back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to relax"
Great hotel, friendly staff, good location. Sat on balcony watching electrical storms at night...amazing. Good room service, food costing £3-9, various bands playing light jazz to classic hits. Good restaurant across the road, 3 course meal plus 3 large beers £10. Rooms cleaned everyday, including bed linen changed. Wi fi worked most of the time, periods […] of delays loading youtube. Free shuttle to the beach every hour, or 15min walk. Breakfast buffet had good selection of Thai and Western food. Peaceful and relaxing, should have stayed longer, have booked a 2 week return trip for April. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"4star and worth considering"
This was my first time to Thailand and although the resort/hotel had a nice Thai theme through it all it still had the usual comforts and practicalities of most western hotels. The pool was great and plenty of loungers available with a convenient pool side bar where the guy would bring your drinks over to you. The spa/health place was amazing and very […] professionial. We got our massages half price due to it being off season (Aug). The staff were very polite, friendly and always happy to help, although their English wasn't great we kind of fumbled through it. If we had a major problem it could have been quite difficult. We booked a tour through their booking counter and the lady there spoke good english and was very helpful. The resort was starting to look a bit run down in a few areas, mainly just water damage but after seeing the monsoons you could see why. But they didn't seem very quick to repair any damage. It was back off the main street and right in between Kata & Karon. If you don't mind a 10-15min walk to either main centre it was good. Hourly bus took us down to Kata beach a few times which was great, otherwise a walk there via the shops took about 15-20mins (as you have to walk around the Club Med grounds). Personally I'd rate it as a 4, but I think it was really good value for money and suited us good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly Staff But Resort In Need Of Refurbishment"
The staff were very curtious and friendly. The food was very affordable meals inside the hotel restaurants were on a par with eating outside the resort. Complimentary drinks and nibbles on Thursday evening gave opportunities to meet other guest. The pool was lovely however needed to be cleaned more often. Only disappointment were the rooms, which were […] not what they appeared to be on the internet. Rooms were old and rundown, also the airconditioning seemed to be noisy, dirty and leaked. Rooms are in need of a refurbishment. p.s. There needs to be a wider variety of music played around the pool. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was AMAZING. Everything you would ever want from a hotel this one has it. We arrived around midnight, handed a drink on arrival and wet towels to cool ourselves down, was the perfect start. We stayed in the nalina classic room, it was huge, spotless, our own private balcony looking out onto the pool, bathroom was huge, bed was so comfortable […] and it was so big you could have fit 4 people in it. The free buffet breakfast was delicious and so much variety to choose from because its a hot and cold buffet. The surrounds of the hotel itself are very well kept. I also got a massage in the spa, it was a bit more expensive in comparison to the massage parlours on the street but it was so relaxing and a lot more professional than the parlours on the street. On Thursday nights there is free drinks for one hour and the staff get together with the guests and chat. The room was cleaned every day with fresh towels every day also. The staff were so polite and welcoming. The hotel was also very well situated,only a short walk to Kata beach and the main town area where there are shops,markets,pubs and resturants also it is only a short walk to Karon aswell. You can get a free shuttle bus to the beach every day and they provide beach towels umbrellas and sun loungers free of charge. If your looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday and 5 star accommodation this is hotel for you. I will definitely be returning to this hotel Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"walking distance 2 beaches, restaurants,& shopping"
I've only got good things to say about Alpina, great service with a smile. My stay at this resort can only be described as fantastic, I absolutely loved everything about this place, from the warm & friendly staff to the great buffet breakfast, all in a lovely tropical setting. The pool was I'mmaculate and cleaned on a daily basis as was my room, It's […] nice to come back a from walk and find your bed made, fresh towels , 2 complimentary bottles of water, oh I almost forgot they have a 2 for 1 happy hour which makes drinking pina colladas all that more enjoyable. The hotels restaurant had great selection of western style foods and traditional thai which would rival any first class restaurant anywhere in the world at very reasonable prices, and it's those little touches which might not mean much to some , but really leaves a lasting impression on me and that's the neat little folds they place on the ends of the toilet paper and boxes of tissues. There is one more thing that really impressed me and that Is, every Thursday the hotel holds a free cocktail party for all the guests of the hotel which Is a nice way for the hotel guests and staff to Interact and get to know one another, and a way for the hotel to get feedback from there guests as to how there enjoying there stay and make sure there needs are been met. To all the staff thank you fire for making my stay a fun and pleasant one, in the words of Arnold Schwarzenegger " I'll be Back" Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Impressed Impressed !!!"
Impressed 1st by the complimentary drink at the reception desk then the room itself I booked a single and it came with 2 beds pushed together to make a fabulous giant bed i was impressed. The dining room and the meals are just first rate and such excellent service. The breakfast was just superb an all you could eat buffet and staff are just so courteous […] again I was impressed. The Spa & massage treatments rooms are of such a high standard and the massage itself was so superb I booked one each of three days i was there and I just mean good old fashioned Stress Relief massages (nothing untowards).All staff in treatments were of such high standard and so professional i would go back and back again.

Welcome was late at night, but not greeted well. Room was booked as queen bed but was given 2 double beds pushed together with wall mounted lamp shades in between.

Excellent hotel with fantastic staff, the keys to the rooms need to be updated and minor repairs here and there but nothing that should bother the normal person. The pool is really nice and big and the surrounds are well maintained. The food is good and plenty of it, the only problem is you cant eat it all there's too much , so not a bad problem to […] have.The rooms are large with good size bathrooms and a wet room which was nice. Comparing what you pay and what you get you come out well ahead, a nice resort. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

This place was great, the hotel it self feels super safe and the pool is clean and great to relax in. Only issue is if your looking to go out a fair bit the only reall place to go is patong beach, if your just looking for a relaxing holiday than highly reccomend itGenuine Hotels.com guest review
To be honest after staying here after reading so many negative reviews i do not know what people are whinging about! the hotel was great! in a quieter location but to get more action you just walk! Food at the hotel was great, breakfast was great compared to most other hotels i have stayed in around Thailand and sorounds. The spa service was out of […] this world.

"Great place, we'll be back for sure!"
The hotel was very nice although a bit outdated. What we loved the most was the personnel, always super keen to help you, incredibly polite and friendly. This place is ideal if you want a time-off! with a large pool (warm water) and a bus to take you to the beach every hour, it's ideal if you want to relax and enjoy yourself.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent stay, Wanted a quiet place to stay after spending much time before in the hustle and bustle of Patong. A walk to the beach, and short scooter ride to patong if you wish. I just wanted somewhere nice to stay with my GF, and this was it. Great food!!Genuine Expedia guest review
