The hotel, not resort as listed on Expedia left a lot to be desired. For one, they trade 5 star reviews for free shuttle rides. In the business world, this is called a scam so I would not know why Expedia would continue to subject their users to this type of place considering there are dozens of reviewers in the past making the same statement. It would also be nice if the hotel updated its photos as this place now looks nothing like it used to. I do not recommend this place for anyone as it is very remote and extremely hard to get to the beach from here. It is on the opposite side of the busiest road in the town and the vehicles never stop to let people go by. On top of that, the 2km walk which would normally not be a problem, is not for the out of shape. We are both in shape and we struggled on the way back. The staff is rude. I made my comments on the check in and was subsequently harassed by the owner or manager who kept calling my room and then knocking on our door. I suffered food poisoning in the city and told him to leave me alone but they bothered us for 2 days straight. Very unprofessional. I’ll be contacting Expedia next. Avoid like the plague!

Overall very disappointing for a 4 stars hotel, feels more like a 3 stars honestly. Hotel facilities have not much charm like you expect from a Thai hotel. The biggest turn off was that the cleaners don’t do their job properly (don’t refill the body soap and the shampoo unless we run out and have to ask réception, don’t clean the shower or bath...). The sheets were clean but the pillows had a dusty smell which made me sick at night being allergic to dust. Breakfast was a bit disappointing with food variety and freshness of veggies/fruits. Food at the restaurant is clearly overpriced compare to town prices so better skip it. The staff was rather nice even though English was not very good for the majority of them. The gym is pretty small and is missing more equipment in order to do proper full body training. Again the floor mattress were super dusty and should clearly be changed for guests comfort. The shuttle for the beach was convenient even though the service stops at 4 Pm so if you want to go to beach or dinner after 4 PM your only option is to take a taxi to town which will be rather expensive for a 5minutes ride. Me and my wife since we love walking tried the way back to hotel by foot but the road is very busy road and not safe at all with cars running full speed and no path for pedestrian; highly don’t recommend to do that, it was a stressing experience. I have stayed at 3 hotels in Phuket so far and this was clearly the worst in our experience so far.

The bar staff was so friendly and helpful as well as the bellhops and taxi provided. Rooms were cleaned. We never got our vouchers for helping save the planet each day with the towels being cleaned

I have been double booked and I have been charged 415 U.S dollars which they need to refund me. but unfortunately after talking to expidia they said I won't get full refund. also it takes 45 days to get my rest of money back. This is wrong. It was thier mistake and they should be responsible.
