Stayed here with my partner and we were greeted with a welcome, cool drink and warm smiles. Everyone here is so friendly that we were made to feel at home from the minute we arrived. The hotel looks out onto a sandy beach which is literally 20 seconds walk away. Or you have further comfort around either of their two pools. I'm always armed with good intentions towards hotel gyms - ie I only use them when I'm feeling guilty of large breakfasts, which the Crowne Plaza delivers daily. The menu comprises healthy to continental to English to Asian dishes and a team of chefs are on standby. They do a wonderful poached egg by the way, not as easy as it sounds. We had a relaxing time here, recharging the batteries as well as having days out. I'd advise hiring a car from the airport as it allows you to be more mobile and is much cheaper than relying on daily taxis. As Arnie would say - "I'll be back"!!

Visited this property as a walk in guest, with intention to relax at the pool and have some food at their pool bar.
The area is welcoming, staff in front desk showed me around the hotel and informed me about different activities available at the beach. Pool is clean and there is always staff to look after you. You can also rent a canoe or paddle board (200 and 300 THB per hour) so you can visit the nearby islands. The closest island takes no more than 20 minutes trip with the canoe, and it was nice to see the local life of the people who live right next to the beach area. Although the hotel beach is clean and clear, if you swim a bit out the water gets dirty, as Phuket port is right next to the hotel.
The only negative points of this property are:

- Payment for using the pool is 400 THB if you are a walk inn, which is not a good strategy to bring outside guests. Before visiting, I already had in mind spending money on food and drinks at pool area, and I found this extra visit charge excessive. (That is why only 3 points review, if not it would easily be a 4 or 5 point).

- Extra charge for canoe and paddle rent. Some properties offer free use of this equipment, such as the Pullman Phuket Panwa (which also offers free entry for walk in guests) just next to this hotel. If this service was free to use, the guests would spend more time on the property and get physically tired, which would mean spending more money on drinks and snaks in pool bar.

Otherwise, the food is served in generous portions (excellent pizza) and they have some good promotions for their draugh singha beer during happy hour (buy 1 get 1 free). The staff is also very pleasant and can communicate in English.

I hope that in the future the entry fee will be cancelled, as I am now living in Phuket and would love to visit the pool area regularly during week days with a group of friends.

Phuket was my last stop on my two week trip to Thailand and before landing, I had been suffering an URI with a fever. This beautiful resort with the amazing ocean front view was therapeutic and offered me an opportunity for convalescence. The beach, although not the best was quiet and just enough for me. What really bought this place over the top for me though, was the incredible staff. I couldn't believe the level of personalization I recieved from this attentive, polite, responsive, professional staff at this hotel. They even knew my name and room number before I could provide it.
DON'T book this hotel if you are looking for a great beach and excitement. DO however consider it if you enjoy a stunning view, relaxation and great service.

Such a beautiful place to stay. After 4days of being in Patong Beach all I needed was relaxation. Breath taking views when we arrived made me feel at peace instantly. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone. The staff are amazing and so genuine. The food was amazing and so enjoyable to eat and wasn't expensive.
All you could ever want in one place.
Thank you to all management and staff for making our honeymoon something to treasure and remember always
