More quiet area of Phuket, perfect for families or if you want to be a bit further away from nightlife of Patong beach. Close to nice beach and a market. Good breakfast and 3 different swimming pools. I would say good value for money. Staff were very helpful.

This is a dated three star property situated on a hill. So unless you are very fit to climb a few stairs, you can give it a miss. The hotel has three swimming pools, all clean and well maintained.
