“Probably very nice in it's day but slightly run down now”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2012

Stayed with family in a Deluxe Studio Pool Access for 6000 Baht per night.

Room was spacious with a double bed and a fold out sofa bed for the kids. Outside we had a small terrace with direct access to the pool. On the terrace a spiral staircase led up to the roof which was one common sun deck for all the rooms in our building. All in all pretty cool but all of it slightly worn, the pool felt a bit dirty, paint was peeling and so on.

Bangtao beach is a short walk away and Surin beach a slightly longer walk.
The included breakfast was decent but far from luxurious.
Wifi cost extra but worked well.

Hard to fault for us and going back again in May 2012. We found the staff to be superb, very friendly and very helpful. Not really a kid friendly hotel due to location, but that's just fine by us. If you want the hubub and noise go to Patong but after spending many years in Phuket, we think Surin area is a great little spot and with a motor bike or car, easily acquired, the world is your oyster.

Room Tip: Taste resaurant on Surin Beach is 5 star but closes generally for wet seaon mid-May. Italian Resaur...

I was staying at the hotel for 10 days - 2nd year in the row I've done this. It sounds small, but the internet voucher was inadvertently thrown out by one of the cleaning staff - this is no problem on its own. I explained to the staff the situation but they refused to do anything about it. Further, my flight out of phuket was at 6pm at night and to extend my checkout anything past 2pm, they wanted to charge me. There was no manager on duty and staff were pretty useless.

Maybe I'm asking too much, but when you're in a town with plenty of accommodation options and I had already stayed there once before, I would expect a bit more customer service.

Won't stay here again - too many other choices in bangtao.

We stayed in the Kris Resort for 8 Nights and loved it. The rooms are hughe and the bathrooms are big as well.
The only negative point is that the beds are really hard.
The beach is 5 Minutes walk away, as well as the restaurants and small shops.
All in all a great Hotel with excellent staff!

Service crew were pretty inflexible, we booked the deluxe room which is very very very spacious for 2 people yet the service crew was inflexible and did not allow 6 of us to squeeze into one room. If they are afraid of the noise that we will be generating, they should have no worries, there were no other guests who booked the deluxe rooms.

Breakfast was included in the pricing as well and if you are looking at quantity over quality for your breakfast, then you should have no complains. Cleaniless is a big plus for The Kris but its location sucks, totally. Although Taxi services are readily available, The Kris is totally far from Phuket Town and Patong Beach.

Not recommended for tourists who are looking to spend most of their time out of the resort.

Service was VERY rude, location is average. Meal not included in price. Wouldn't call a taxi to the airport only their overly expensive shuttle service. All staff (excl cleaning crew) rude, abrupt. Do NOT book a stay at this hotel!!
Location to good beaches too far.
Stay somewhere at Kamala instead

the staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a deluxe room and it was good and clean. The hotel has a rooftop terras where you can take a drink or eat something. The beach is a 10 minutes walk, there are a lot of nice beachclubs were you can have a great sunset.
