Stayed here for 2 nights with my family and did not find it a good hotel. The staff were difficult to get information from and the rooms were below average for the price. The location was good for the beach and the hotel did run a shuttle to the beach and had chairs that you could reserve (first come first...

The hotel is so, so. The positives are the rooms (large, well equipped), and good location for both Kata and Karong beach, as well as trip to Patong, Botanical Gardens, Phuket town etc. The minuses are that the hotel is full of budget travelers, spending time by the poll smoking and drinking beer. Not too cool. Also, the hotel is...

The Kata Palm was exactly as you might expect in a resort hotel, all that let it down was the service. The rooms are nice, large and well equipped. The pool is excellent and pool entrance rooms are a bonus. It's not cheap, infact for Thailand it is expensive but all in all it's great, and for the occasion we...

I had realised this as soon as I reached the reception desk, and told the receptionist when I was checking out. She had...

I stayed here with my husband and 6 month old baby for 7 nights (after a frustrating stay at the Alpina) and was pleasantly surprised. The lobby is nothing special and compared to the previous hotel seemed small and understaffed. However, check-in was relatively straight-forward and we were greeted by the helpful older lady at front of house who kindly...

Stayed 9 nights late sept early oct and overall good experience. We had 2 ground floor rooms interconnected with pool view. The lock between rooms was on the kids side which was a bad design.
