Great value. Amazing Rooms and Pool
Great room in the heart of the city. Great pool. Delicious breakfast. The room is definitely a value for under $50. All the amenities you'd expect from a 4 star resort.

One night was enough
staff was great. Hotel not at all what we expected. Funky bathroom, cheap coffee, beach was close but you had to go down the street around a wall to get to it. Felt shortchanged on any food or drink we got there.

Be ready for a downgrade
When I arrived at the hotel, they downgraded me. They had overbooked the pool-access rooms and therefore downgraded me to a room upstairs for my first night. In return they offered me a free meal at the hotel's restaurant. So if you book the nice room, just be aware you might not get to stay in it the whole time you're at the hotel. Someone in the hotel's office doesn't do a good job of managing their bookings, so just be aware of that. Also, the front desk staff should know how much taxis cost to various destinations, epecially the airport. But instead of being able to tell me that information, and instead of offering to get me a taxi, they just said I could go find a taxi on the street. Other hotels offer better service.

Getting downgraded is no fun
I got downgraded when I arrived. I had booked a room with direct pool access. It's the nicest room they have. But they oversold those rooms. A family arrived right after me and had the same thing happen to them. The hotel put me in a similar room, but obviously without pool access. To make up for it, they offered me a free meal in their restaurant. No thanks. Much better food elsewhere in town. The next day when I moved into the room with pool access, I discovered the sink faucet was installed incorrectly. The faucet was sitting at the very back edge of the sink bowl and there was only a 5cm/2 inch gap between the faucet spout and the bowl. Putting my hands under there to wash them meant most of the water fell behind the sink onto the counter. The bathrooms in both rooms are set up with a large glass pane separating the bathroom from the sleeping area. The sink faces the glass pane. There is no mirror above the sink, so it's hard for guys to shave. Given the annoyance of being downgraded, then being in a room with poor construction, I decided to leave early and find a better place. Phuket island has fixed rates for taxis. I thought I knew what the rate was going to be but asked a manager at the front desk. She said she didn't know but I could go out onto the street and hail a taxi to find out. Normally, the hotel staff offers to help you get a taxi, but not at this hotel. Don't be surpised if you get downgraded.

Poor Management
There was no real management. Nice building. Some of the rooms face directly onto the pool so you can dive or enter the water from your patio: a neat concept. Lots of very young girls and boys running around to serve you, but they didn't understand hat they were doing. When I pointed out mosquitoes in the room, they got some insect spray, but then they charged me for the spray.
