Been coming here for years that now is coming to an ending until they built up another somwhere else. They had a so amazing staff that you really connected to. Always Calypso by night. They had good food, drinks and music. A second family close to the heart.

Great late night live entertainment. Calypso cover band singers are very good. Servers are friendly. HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you enjoy chilling with some friends and drinks and listening to fun cover band songs!

We stayed at Calypso because it was one of the more affordable hotels in Phuket at only 400 baht for a fan room. I wish we hadn't. The room was small and basic, whilst the bathroom looked like a garden shed that had been constructed in the precious little space available. The shower was just a cold tap with a... More
