The hotel is tucked away from the central busy part of Phuket! The service on arrival and through out our stay was brilliant! Warm, friendly, helpful staff. The hotel itself has stunning views, well maintained, clean, modern and has a good vibe. We took tons of photos but none do justice to the actual breath taking beauty of the place!...

Awkward check in: shown to room with different description to that which I booked. Was asked to wait for 20 minutes until "my room" became available. Waited over 1 hour and 40 minutes. Visited reception several times but was told to continue waiting. Despite waiting for so long, no one came to speak to us. I returned to reception and...

We spent six days at the Panwa Beachfront resort, overall had a good time, breakfast is OK, fresh and good variety, our room was facing the beach, great views with high tide and large enough, only downside is that we had a connecting room (door instead of wall) so it was noisy, they were fully booked so we couldn't be...

I simply cannot fathom how some of the 5 star reviews relate to the hotel I have just checked out of after a 5 day stay. This is the first bad review I have left a hotel, but I feel utterly compelled to do so. Staff are simply rude and unapproachable, customer service is absolutely non-existent. Facilities are no more...

Unfortunately, the best part of our stay was the initial view from the lobby when we arrived - it all went down hill from there. The customer service is non-existent, and we often felt as though we were inconveniencing staff when making simple requests, not a good attitude towards their customers.
