The hotel is located quite far from the heart of Phuket (Patong Beach / Bangla walk). The room is big & clean. Pool is small, but can accomodate 9 of us. The staff can speak english well.
If you want to go to Bangla Walk / Patong Beach, you can ride a tut-tut for THB300 per trip.
Behind the hotel, there's a restaurant which served good & cheap food (Aladdin Cafe).
You have to remind the staff to clean up your room daily. If not, they wont have the effort to clean your room. There was one day, i asked them to clean my room while was away. Unfortunately, they didn't.
Stayed there for 4 days, and guess what, they never clean up my room. I don't mind since i didn't messed up with it.
The internet connection is good, reliable & fast.
On my first day of staying, there was no running water during evening time. The receptionist told me, the water will be back in 30 minutes, as i didn't mention to him that my face is all covered with facial wash!
Checked in & checked out was so smooth, they let us to check in early, if the room is empty & ready.
They also let us to hangout in the lobby while waiting for our coach to pick us up.
Overall, is just nice, cozy, small & affordable hotel.
Price is cheap, clean, but it is too far from the beach, no elevator. taxi, bus are easy to get.the seven eleven is near by. The swimming pool is too small...no space, not too bad to stay here, we are forty people for tow night and reception are friendly
We stayed here for 7nights, great place. Very clean, good service, good wifi, nice pool (bit small),decent eggs on toast. The manager is lovely, she even brought me on her motorbike to exchange money late at night. Very helpful staff, helped us with bags and organise trips.
Only bad thing was had to ask for room to be cleaned after 2nd day, but after that it was spotless everyday.
We stayed here over New Year, we paid 32 GBP high season and the hotel itself is lovely, VERY clean, rooms are big with own bathroom (hot) shower! and TV with a few english channels. The staff are great, very friendly and really could not do enough for us. First couple of nights we stayed on the 3rd floor but as the hotel got less busy after new year we asked to move downstairs, after a word with 'big boss' they moved us to a delux room right next to the pool.....lovely!! :) every day when we opened the french doors the sun shone in, perfect :). We rented a bike from the hotel itself for 250bht so we could explore the island. The hotel is situated about 10 mins from Patong beach and the main strip although we only went there once as it was quite busy, instead we choose to go to the other beaches such as Karon. All in all we loved spending our holiday here. Yep big thumbs up!! :)
WOW Im the 1st to review!!? Guess not many knew of this place yah... Hhhmmm… ANYWAYS…
I checked in here on 14th April. Paid USD 33 for 1 nite stay in the deluxe room without breakfast + free wifi.
Hotel: Building is in a very good condition. Actually I think the hotel juz took up the middle portion of a long building… But nevertheless, the portion that belong to the hotel is decorated very nicely. I kinda like the exterior texture & colours. It gives u a warm & cozy feeling. The interior is neat & tidy, decorated with a mix of modern & old furniture. 1st impression of this hotel – NOT BAD.
Location: Hotel is at the tip/beginning of Patong. As ur transport drive up the hill, u will see Welcome to Patong City sign. 2 minutes after, u will see entrance of Sea Pearl Villas Resort. And as ur transport drive down 2 minutes after that, there will be like a short cross junction… juz look straight ahead & u can actually see the hotel sign.
The entertainment area, most restaurants, Bangla Road & the beach are quite a distance away. By walking, it will take you about 30-40 minutes. BUT not too worry, for those who knows how to ride a bike, even without a license, go rent one! Walk 3 mins along the main road there’s a the petrol station and less than 50 metres opposite, exactly at the cross junction there's a minimart named S&G Residence. Get ur scoots there. Rental of a scooter cost u only 200 Thai Baht / USD 6.50 per day!
Staffs: You will be greeted at the reception/front desk area by casual dressed, young, frenly, sexy ladies. Hmmm.. that’s a 1st for me! And oh, the porter is frenly too!
Room: The Deluxe room is big. Enuf room/space to run around & throw clothes all over. There’s closet in the room. TV with a few decent channels. No safety deposit box.
Bed: The bed to me was ok. But my partner found it too hard & got up in the morning with quite a bad backache. There’s no extra pillow other than the 2 that’s already on the bed. Think it wouldn’t hurt if they could throw in more pillows.
Bathroom: 2 minus point - 1st it is not the usual square or rectangle shape bathroom. 2nd it is small. Odd shape bathroom + small area = Claustrophobic. But it does have washing essentials! So that’s a thumbs up.
Pool: There’s a small pool juz outside my room. 2-3 steps out the sliding door & into the pool!!
Hotel guests: Saw a handful of Caucasians.
