September 2017 Review of Chanalai Hillside Resort
Pros: Location in Karon, close to beach, friendly staff, service, decent breakfast, and value Cons: Lots of tourists, can be loud, slow wifi, and amenities Conclusion: Great value, friendly staff but can be noisy at times but recommended. First time to Phuket and we chose them based on their reviews and proximity to the town and beach. We knew we didn't want to stay in Patong so this resorts is more family friendly and met our needs. The rooms are spacious and clean, housekeeping does a good job and the staff are always friendly. There's not a tremendous amount of amenities; just the basics: breakfast, pool, in room service, etc. There's a roof top pool that offers more privacy than the common pool downstairs. A few things to be aware of: there are a lot of tourists that are on tour buses and can be crowded. A lot of them. Also, the toilet was a bit frustrating to flush; you have to hold down the handle until it fully flushes. Wifi signal in the upper floors is very weak; they need a repeater or extender so it can be frustrating. We had an incident in our room where the door divider between rooms was opened while we were away. This was a bit alarming since we didn't leave the room that way but hotel management quickly resolved the issue and agreed to move our room to another. They comped us for our shuttle back to the airport plus some snacks. They do care and try hard to accommodate all guests. Overall a great stay at a great price point.

Lovely Hotel - Wish it had better wifi
Overall I was very happy with the Chanalai Hillside Resort. I booked a "Superior Room," which was terrific. At first I thought it was odd that there was a giant window between the room & bathroom, but later noticed a blind that could be lowered. I didn't use my balcony, but had a lovely, open view (I did notice there were some balcony rooms that looked out onto a wall, & others that looked across the pool to the other side of the hotel). The hotel is up a hill, toward the further edge of the Karon Beach area. It's a bit of a walk to get into the main hub of shops, but you can also catch a tuk tuk. Keep in mind though, cabs and tuk tuks will not be driving by the hotel by chance. The hotel staff were all very friendly & my stay was very pleasant :-). My biggest disappointment was the wifi :-(. I had read other reviews were people had issues and sadly I experienced the same. One night I returned to notice several people on their laptops and phones in the lobby because that's where they could get signal. I mentioned my signal issues to the desk and was told they would check it the next day, but I really didn't notice any improvement. Since it seems to be a consistent complaint it would be nice if they could work to really improve it. My sole other disappointment is that evidently they can not call a cab for you. At least that's what I was advised. I was told I would need to go elsewhere to book a cab to the airport, which is unfortunate but perhaps standard

Fair 4.0
Terrible service - no care for guests
We stayed for 3 nights in the hotel. First night we arrived late (approx 1am) and check in was fine, we called before to ensure we could check in this late. The only issue we had was that we had been put in a twin room when we had booked a double room, we mentioned to reception who said the hotel was full and change in the morning. This wasn’t too much of an issue and we went back down in the morning. When we went down, they said okay we will change you at 2pm, so again no problem. At 2pm, we came to reception, they said please empty our original room, we had already packed up but there was no offer to help with bags etc. We waited at reception for around 15 mins and then were given another key. This was a double room as booked, however there were ants in the room around the fridge and coffee making facilities. We told reception and they said they would send someone. 30 mins passed and no one came so I got a cleaner myself and she wiped the ants off the wall - but only into the room and then left... we decided we would clear it up ourselves, however ants were in the room for the remainder of the stay as they were getting in through bathroom tiles. All in all, there was no attentive service to help us, we were made to feel bad about raising these issues as the hotel staff were busy, but I find the issues we had not acceptable for the price and standard. Breakfast was distinctly average and the restaurant itself was extremely hot. Wouldn’t stay again, poor value.
