We stayed here for 8 nights. It was like living in a rain forest without the rain. It was so peaceful. The staff were very friendly and in particular Am who was a trainee and served us coffee every morning. She always had a lovely smile and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was amazing and there was plenty...

Before we went to the Mandarava we’d read that it was up a steep hill but didn’t think much of it as we’ve stayed in other places where people complained about that kind of thing only to get there and wonder what they were complaining about, but this place really is on a big hill with a LOT of stairs...

Staying a week. Third time in Thailand and third place I've stayed this trip. The pools are lovely, but there are a lot of mosaic tiles come loose and sitting on the bottom. Agree with a previous review as to hogging beds with towels. Have seem people unable to use the pool whilst chairs have been "kept" untouched all morning....

Stayed for 8 nights and had a great time. Rooms were well presented and staff very friendly and accommodating. Very hilly. Resort has courtesy buses to take you to and from your room, but still very strenuous

It's a very beautiful place, different groups of rooms have access to different pools which are kept between gardens or almost we can name them jungle! You will see your neighbors around, good pool bars and as all Thai people, friendly personnels are serving

Wow! this place is simply stunning. I could find no fault in the resort, the staff, the room, the stunning grounds, the food. However, I did not like the location. It's not a particularly nice area and there is no private beach. The beach is a 15-20 minute walk away and although ha nice beach, I prefer private beaches. I...

We think this is the best resort in the Karon beach. There´s no one thing we don´t like. We have been there 4 times now and hope we´ll come back next year also. Environment is beautiful and close to nature. The rooms are like own bungalows, well decorated and clean. In the hotel area there are many stairs but we...

We were very pleased with Mandarava & I would recommend it as a pleasant place to stay in Phuket. Check-in was quick & painless & we were soon being driven to our room. The room was very, very nice. It was in the newest phases at the top of the resort. Large bed & large bathroom. We paid for a...

We stayed in the Mandarava Resort for 7 days beginning of March. Fabulous place but beware that it is very hilly and although the resort has buggys to take you around, you do still have to walk up and down steep slopes to get to pools etc. Rooms really nice - very sorry we did not book a pool room...
