Had a late arrival into Phuket Int'l Airport and did not want to drive a rental car to Rawai in the middle of the night. Reserved a bungalow/villa style room w/breakfast on www.agoda.com. They do offer transportation but I did not arrange it in advance. Should have done so. So, I sprung for a driver to take me to the hotel at midnight. Safe with no waiting. DIspatcher was in customs hall/luggage area. Asked for 500 Baht which is a fortune. I said NO. Agreed on 300 Baht which is about $10USD. Had porter get my bags and load the car. Tipped him $3 which is a fortune.No problems at all. If you need Baht, there are ATM machines when you exit the Customs Hall. I paid their dispatcher desk directly and was on my way. Tipped the driver $3 which is also a fortune in Thailand. He was very, very happy. I absolutely WOULD NOT HAVE found this hotel at midnight, if I had rented the car that night. It is a 3 minute walk to a lovely, unpretentious beach and adjoins a National Park. I recommend that any foreigner drive in "daylight hours only" when renting a car and driving to their resort. You must acclimate yourself to driving on the left, with steering and controls on the right. Not fun at all but can be done with focus and concentration. Airport Resort Hotel was lovely. Immaculate, welcoming, small pool, internet for a small fee (50 Baht per hour), fridge, bottled water, comfy King Size bed, chilly a/c, huge bathroom and breakfast for a small additional fee. The breakfast exceeded my expectations for this type of place. Fried eggs, ham, cheese, toast, carved pineapple, bananas, delicious coffee. My only complaint would be the orange juice which was similar to Tang. No big deal with such great rates. I noted that if you bought anything that was supplied in the room, the prices were beyond reasonable. On average, $1 USD for sodas, chocolates, chips, etc. Unheard of in the USA. $2 for a beer. There is a small mini mart steps from the hotel. If you walk to the beach area, there are tons of places to eat and barely any tourists. Even a tailor, laundry, shops, massage, etc. at extremely low prices. This place is quite a find and I recommend it to anyone who flies in and needs to shower, rest, eat and recover. Also, a great place to spend the night before you leave on a flight the next day. The staff could not have been nicer! I will stay here again. Oh...and very, very quiet for being so near the airport. Thank you for a splendid experience!
