I went to Phuket on a family vacation. The idea was complete relaxation!!!
Location: I think that Holiday Inn Resort is one the most ideally located hotels in Phuket. It is just opposite the Patong beach. patong beach is very lively and full of tourists and water sport activities. Loungers are available on the beach at 30 bhats for full day. Water sports is expensive though negotiable....please negotiate well before using.
Front desk: Good and responsive. The pre-booked rooms were kept ready and alloted without any problem. Front desk staff were courteous and polite.
Rooms: we had asked for family suite in the general section as we had 2 kids with us. Family suite was very good, especially the kids room. It was made on PIRATES theme. Though 2 rooms were connected together, we had only 1 bathroom to use, which was not sufficient for 4 of us. We later shifted to rooms in BUSAKORN wing. BUSAKORN wing is a special wing where are rooms are considered to be better than the regular wing. There is a separate restaurant and swimming pool exclusively for the use of BUSAKORN residents. Room rates are slightly on the higher side. We enjoyed the privacy and better rooms of Busakorn wing.
Food: there is a Thai restaurant in the Busakorn wing, Italian restaurant in the general section and a continental restaurant in the general section. Food is good in all these restaurants. Though, it is better to try food outside as there are lots of varieties and cheaper too. The side streets near the hotel are full of good eating joints. Just walk and explore!!
Breakfast: one of the best buffet I have had. Too many choices and good taste. Not be missed. Wake up on time for breakfast!!
Activities: There are lots of activities for the kids as well as adults. If you are with kids then this hotel is a good choice as the activities can keep the kids busy all the day. There is also a swimming pool for the kids.
Security: I could see a security guard near the lift in the general wing. However, the same was missing in the Busakorn wing. In general, the security is good.
General: The general "service with a smile" attitude was missing in the staff in all the restaurants. But it was not a worry as other services were really good.
You can get towels at the swimming pool which can be carried to the beach.
There is a coffee shop in the hotel.
There is a convenience store too in the hotel where you can get water, ice-cream, cookies, etc.
There are lots of travel agencies, massage shops, restaurants, pubs in the vicinity of the Hotel. Take a walk and explore. the area is very safe.
