“Wish we stayed longer!”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

Only stayed here for one night but had a great experience. Good location: 5 minute walk to the main strip with bars, restaurants, and shopping and a 10 minute walk to Kata Beach (don't bother searching for hotels directly on Kata Beach, they either are very rare or don't exist). Yet far enough away from the buzz to relax and enjoy your poolside Chang beer bought at the nearby 7-11. Also have a frequent shuttles to the main strip and to the beach for those unable or unwilling to walk. Rooms were modern and beautiful with rainfall shower and huge bath tub. Our room also had direct access to the amazing pool with a private patio (worth the extra money). Overall, clean rooms, good service, great food. Wish we could have stayed longer. Will be back.

We have only just returned home from Thailand having gone to celebrate our 25th. This hotel was perfect. The pool is fantastic, we had a pool access room which was lovely, huge bed, beautiful bathroom and access direct from your balcony into the pool.
There are some mixed reviews for this hotel but for the price you really cannot go wrong. It is down a long driveway, but there are always buggies on hand, and once you are out on the strip you can find everything you want either way you walk. The beach is not far, and we hired a jeep to explore for 1000bt a day. Well worth it to have a look around. Patong is a drive away, and a taxi or tuk tuk will charge 400bt each way.
If you want peace and relaxation this is a gem, the staff were always polite and really nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast buffet was more than adequate, and we also sampled the BBQ, not cheap but well worth the money for the amount of sea food etc, it really was all you can eat. The hotel was busy when we stayed, but is never felt crowded.
This was our second trip to Phuket and having sampled the Centara's appalling service last year, we thought we would give a smaller hotel a try and were glad we did. i

Room Tip: Pool access rooms are lovely

I got to hear these words from the staff many times over my 3 nights stay at the resort...
I'm surprised to read some of the reviews raving about the hospitality and service in this place, I guess I had a different experience. So, here goes:
A big part of my average rating has to do with the service at this place (and location)..
On the day of my Anniversary, I was getting late for a dinner reservation at 'Mom Tri's Kitchen' (No. 1 restaurant in Kata, and with good reason), which is about a 7 minute cab ride away. So, I asked for a taxi at the reception and prompt came the reply 'No Can Do'. Does the hotel not have a taxi- yes it does but it's out... well then can you just arrange a local taxi to come to the reception- 'No can do'.. the reason for this reply was not explained (unless you would consider repetition of the phrase multiple times a reason)
We stayed in a private pool villa which was actually pretty nice (see photos attached), It was spacious and clean with modern amenities like a great sound system with an ipod/iphone dock. Now, I have stayed in many private pool villas in my life and I enjoy the private swim thoroughly but in this case the pool was, quite honestly, just a semi jacuzzi... it was waist deep and really small. it does have two nice jacuzzi jets to massage your back when you sit on the elevated portion... it wasn't bad but just quite small.
When i asked at 11pm one night, if they could tell me how to switch on the light in the pool.. promptly came the reply, brace yourself, 'No Can Do'- the lights are centralized and cannot be switched on at this time (by the way, the previous night the light in the pool was on well past midnight). So it is entirely at the staffs' discretion, when to switch of the light in YOUR pool and they don't take requests!!
Well could I order some food perhaps,,,'No can do'- Kitchen closes at 10pm. And this, in a place like kata beach where the strip is happening till 1am.
The Location of the hotel is also extremely annoying. One has to walk a 300m stretch to get to the main strip. A buggy will drop you to the strip but when you are heading back to your hotel after a tiring day on the strip with shopping bags, there will be no buggy service to ferry you back and you cannot call for it. Now the biggest difference in walking this stretch as opposed to other hotels we saw, is that this stretch has guest house rooms running alongside it, as opposed to all the other hotels (located in a similar set back from the strip) is that they have bustling shops and bars which makes the walk eventful and fun rather than a drudging chore.
Other Pros and Cons:
Cons: Food is atrocious. We tried the included BF buffet- horrible. Some room service- chewy rubber burger. If you need to have food at this hotel opt for the Thai cuisine.
Pros: Room is large with good amenities and clean. The buggy staff is actually pleasant.

The Biggest flaw with this hotel is it's service- the huge language barrier(need more English speaking staff) leads to a major communication gap all contributing to the bad management and sub standard service that I experienced.

Do I recommend this hotel---- 'No Can Do'

Room Tip: We stayed at private pool villa No.1102 which seemed like a good option because it has only one othe...

We stayed here on our honeymoon trip for 7 days. The hotel was lovely with a nice pool and beautiful surrounding nature. The staff were always friendly and helpful, the smile always on their faces. The hotel offers shuttle bus to the beach every hour, or they can drive you to the main road and from there you can walk to the beach which is a 5 minutes walk away.
If you want to save yourself the trouble of arguing with the taxi/tuk tuk drivers about the price the hotels personal taxi drivers charge the same price and are more decent in their prices even at short trips.
If you are staying at Metadee ask for the taxi driver Mr. Nine, a very friendly and nice person, who will charge you honestly and take you wherever you want.
As for the hotel, a 4 star hotel with a 5 star feeling. It wont disappoint you
