Total Dissappointment

From the start of our check in we were already regretting booking this hotel. On the first night and second night the electicity failed on out block of rooms resulting in late night maintenance and then a missed breakfast next day. Then a charge for alacarte breakfast on our bill. Some of the pool staff were rude and tried charging us 20bhts for ice at the poolside. We felt that the hotel policy was to try and get as much extra money from the residents as possible. We submitted our starwood prefered guest membership number at checkin and were never advised that there was a 300bht all inclusive offer per day for children's dining. We could have saved over £150 on our childs lunches and drinks! Where is the service in that. The only advertisement of this offer was by the currency exchange desk. Duh! Why bother. When querying this at check out we were told tough you didnt submit your number at check in. The offer stated you didnt have to be a member but could apply on the spot and claim the offer. Why were we not told of this whrn we

Great location, not a great hotel.

Half way through my stay the hotel painted the room next door which sent powerful fumes into my room. I was graciously upgraded from a garden to a sea view room. Then the trouble began. It was an adjoining room and my neighbors were a very loud family. For three straight nights, my TV went on automatically at 4:30 am. I reported this to the hotel staff twice and they assured me that nothing was wrong. After three straight unwanted wake up calls my restful Thai vacation was over.

Great private beach

We went for a few days for our honeymoon. If you want to go to Phuket for the beaches, this is perfect because there is a large, private beach. The bathrooms were old but the rooms were clean.

Satisfactory!

Overall, it was pleasant and satisfactory. However, we were slightly disappointed by the degree of attention with respect to certain matters. For example, upon check-in, we issued a credit card for incidentals and the like. The person who took down this information made a mistake by failing to write down the correct credit card number. This resulted in an unexpected letter from the hotel advising that our credit card was no good. We advised them of their error, which they corrected, but this caused unnecessary worry and time to rectify as we had to call our credit card company to ensure that there was nothing wrong with our credit card. We were advised by the hotel that they would not charge us for the phone calls since they were caused by the hotel worker's inattention. However, upon check-out, the hotel invoice still included charges for these phone calls. Eventually, the hotel corrected this error as well, but it caused us further unnecessary delay. We would expect the hotel and its staff to pay more attention to detail as part of our experience staying at a hotel of their caliber.
