This is a beautiful hotel. The service is awesome and the staff very friendly. Beautiful pool and beach access. Rooms are nice and comfortable. However- a few things before you book: The hotel is out of the way, which limits the availability of stuff (you have to shuttle into town). There is only one restaurant available. The food and drink... More

My girl friend and I booked two nights here for last week and enjoyed it so much that we stayed an extra two nights. The service was impeccable and friendly. The setting and the view are superb.

We were booked into this hotel for 21 days. The staff were very friendly and could not do enough for you. The food served at breakfast was very tasty. Our one bedroom was poolside so was noisy as one would expect. The beach was very rough and rocky but we were close enough to walk 15 minutes towards Cape Panwa... More

I stayed in A404. It is super spacious - a big kitchen , a big living room , two bedrooms and two toilets. And of course, a big balcony. Breakfast has a limited range of choice - but it is definitely enough. Nice swimming pool with two cute cats. the beach is fantastic!

beautiful beach, nice pool, good breakfast, friendly staff, clean and big rooms, location is not that close to the town, but you have 2 times per day free suttle to phuket town and back. poor wifi... sometimes work perfect sometimes not at all. when the tide is low you can not swim in the sea.. take upper floor rooms----> view!

Cannot praise this hotel highly enough. Firstly because they took us in in the early hours of the morning as the nearby hotel have over booked and would not admit it.
