Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely staff, beautiful spacious room, loved the pools and restaurants. Morning buffet had a great variety. The spa staff was also lovely and had a perfect and relaxing massage there. Was a 15min walk to Karon beach and there was shuttle service to take you there too

Real luxury - the rooms are beautiful,spacious & spotlessly clean - we had wonderful sea view from our balcony which was real bonus. There are lots of pools that meander themselves throughout the rooms, it really is a masterpiece of design - all have swim up to bars, with great snack lunches served, it really is decadent. The gardens resemble the Amazon, it really had the wow factor. Restaurants were pretty good, breakfasts were amazing (other than poached eggs which were a watery mess). So, why not a 5 star rating :- 1. No draft beer - just cans, very expensive at that 2. Poor selection of wines, again very expensive 3. The place is complex to navigate with slopes, hills & steps everywhere - other than a small scale inadequate map that you can download to your phone, there isn't anything, signage is very hit & miss. This makes it quite intimidating when you first arrive & certainly affected our enjoyment during the first few days. 4. We didn't like Karon Bay or Phuket for that matter - far too busy & frenetic Finally, I have to say something about the staff - they are amazing, nothing is too much trouble, just lovely people. We would like to single out Maew in the Charm Thai restaurant for our particular thanks - she provides amazing service, very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, bubbly - just brilliant at her job.

This was a wonderful place for our five day stay. Very helpful staff. Good food. Beautiful setting. Shuttle service to beach and town available, but a little inconvenient for timing. Could get a taxi anytime, though, and fairly cheap.

Mandarava resort is stunning, set in the mountain side with beautiful foliage throughout just added to the calm, tranquil, fragrant atmosphere. We loved the position of this hotel, close enough to the busy, noisy colourful resort of Karon when you venture out, but to return to Mandarava was always a pleasure. Our amazing room (6108 swim up) was towards the top of the resort which given the heat was a challenge at times however the stunning views and sunset were spectacular. We loved all the pool options, however the Pomelo adult only pool was our preference when we stayed in the hotel, very calm and chilled and Tayueng and Golf made the best G&Ts. Food and beverage here is excellent (international brands) plenty of choice and both restaurants were excellent including the exceptional service. The staff throughout the resort are so welcoming, friendly and professional and are a credit to this hotel. Every where is exceptionally clean, when ever you used the bathroom facilities it was like you were the first person to enter, hand gel always present throughout and oil burners adding fragrance, housekeeping excellent. We had a couples massage in the Cheeva Spa, it was excellent and so relaxing, prices are reasonable, definitely value for money. We throughly enjoyed our stay at the Mandarava and should we return to Phuket we would definitely stay here again, enjoying the all inclusive option which was incredible. Thank you Mandarava, you added to our excellent holiday experience in Thailand. 🙏

We had a Horizon Grand Deluxe room which was set high up on the resort amongst the trees. We liked the privacy of it. Room really needed a chest of drawers as we had to leave things like shorts, swimwear, underwear in our case which is annoying. The air con was great and much needed in the extremely hot and humid weather we had. The bed was very firm which suited us and we slept really well. Would have been nice if there was an air conditioned area to sit in after checkout rather than the open lobby. We had a 3 hour wait and were hot and sweaty by the time we left for the airport. The resort is very hilly but they do have shuttles to take you up and down if needed.
