Reviewed 7 May 2011

the grand ville has a few things going for it, a small but nice pool with a swim up bar being one. it is important though to have a room by the pool i would imagine as the property is on a quite steep hillside. the rooms are spacious enough, have working air-conditioning, mini bar and shower. the tv has only thai channels. bar prices are ok as are the menu items. the food is ok but not good and the breakfast is poor to middling.
There is an area by reception that looks like it needs to be demolished so I wonder how long this place will survive. Having said all that the staff were nice, they have free WiFi and bus into town so i could stay again.

Patong ville is natural environment, location near entertainment and close to the sea.
We really liked this resort and would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here in nov. and could have been there at the same time and the same deal as the last reviewer, The price was $849 for the package,at that price you dont expect 5 star there was a lot of confusion at the checkin but i blame jetstar they organised it,some people were moved to other resorts. We found the place good value for the money the staff spoke very little english,only 1person could understand & talk english but were in there country ,the room was clean, the staff excellent,the food very good nice pool,nice gardens,the place just needs a spruce up, free transport to town was good Im glad we were away from the patong /bangla rd. area We would stop there again if such a deal came up

This hotel is the faulty towers of Phuket possibly Thailand, we were collected from the airport and when we arrived were told they didn't have our booking! The staff then proceeded to make phone calls hiding under the front reception desk laughing! After an hour of dealing with a 'Trainee' despite asking for the resort manager, we were given a room. The sun lounges by the pool are cracked and full of mould, the shower curtain had mould on it also and the glasses were dirty. Then they expect you to attend a seminar and try and get you to buy into timeshare, what a joke DONT STAY THERE!!

It looks great on the website however in real life very average to poor - the entrance and reception is old, paint peeling, run down. Up the stairs the pool is a lot smaller than it looks, totally overgrown, very hemmed in, one restaurant which is mostly outside, the spa is closed (for good by the look of it). It advertises luxurious and meticulous rooms, average at very best would be more like, air conditioners etc old and there is no where to go, it is isolated on the poor side of town. In my opinion it looks like its on the slippery slope to closing. We were booked in for 6 nights and stayed 1, we asked for our money back, which was another story and in the end we booked out adn a local tour driver took us away to choose another hotel in Patong by the sea.. Please note we did do this and from then on in had a fab time.

sorry it was at Absolute Bangla Patong but I believe that they have same standard. I went with my boyfriend, he's a white guy but I'm Thai. One off their staffs who gave us service treated me very bad but gave service to my boyfriend very nicely just because he is a white guy or whatever reason was. But we are not going back there again. I complain to the head office how she treated me, then they told me to write comment to the MD. I complain to the MD as like as they told me to, but there is nothing happen. I have never heard anything back from them ever!
I really hate people to look down on other people, and if they want to keep doing this type of business they shouldn't have let this type of thing happen.
