Over all this hotel is great! The rooms are excellent and we have seen the hillside and the poolside rooms, the hillside rooms have awesome views but some guests loved the cable car at first but tired of it. The cable car and pool are the two things at this hotel which i thought were amazing, must have cost a fortune to build at the time.
The breakfast was nice but weird, not use to having pad thai so early in the morning.
We stayed at a pool side villa above the ground floor room where you can swim directly from your room, very nice and quiet, restaurants are great tasting but too expensive for phuket, especially the japanese one. The pool bar was awesome, great place to meet people, especially Aussies. If you get tired of paying inflated prices for food and drink and taxi or tuk tuks to town then hire a scooter in Patong for 150 baht a day, little bit dodgy riding in patong but you'll get the hang of it, i made it back after 15 changs (thai beer) one night, Happy hour at the bar 5:00 till 7:00 is the best time to drink and say hello to Juob at the bar for me. If you want a nice quiet hotel to escape the rat race of Patong then this hotel is great, even better if you have a scooter!
