The JW Marriott Phuket is a world-class hotel. The rooms, location, and amenities are second-to-none.
While the room rates are quite reasonable, the food and drink are expensive (and you really do not have many other options in the area). Definitely make sure breakfast is included in your rate - it is simply the best; fill up and you will not need to eat lunch. (Tip: I would not recommend the hotel's Andaman Grill - we paid $30 for an appetizer that was neither good nor filling. The Siam Deli had good food at fair prices.)
We loved the beach and swam in the ocean every day. It is secluded and extremely clean. There were flags warning of jellyfish sightings, but the hotel is simply being cautious. Do not miss out! (Tip: Bring extra tubes of sunscreen! It will run you $20+ at the hotel or the nearby Turtle Island grocery.)
The hotel is a ways away from the tacky and seedy nightlife of Patong Beach, and thank the Gods for that. There are convenient shuttle buses if you want to go to other places on the island, so do not let the hotel's location give you pause.
Overall, I highly recommend the JW Marriott Phuket!
