Swimming pool is a sizeable one which is not crowded. An old hotel but value for money. The aircon is noisy but immediately allowed to change to another room. Staff is courteous and always smiling. There are many restaurants near the hotel
Beautiful hotel, in a nice part of Phuket. Great multiple swimming pools. Large room with mountains, pools, big budda, and beautiful scenery. A few blocks walk to the beach. Clean and friendly atmosphere.
Good for sleeping in quiet place, but not good enough to eat in. Room was clean with good services, 2 free water bottle every day and pool was nice ... But food was so good in thailand that the breakfeast and diner purpose in the hotel seems fade, not a lot of fruits on the breakfeast, when you see on market the choice there is you can ask you but why?. Diner: we eat one time it was not bad but not so good and second day when we came back a 9:30 they tell us it's too late for diner which was suppose to close at 10...so we eat all the week outside and it was the better thing to do to travel through the large choice and flavor of thai food (just 3 restaurant in less than 150m from the hotel have fantastic food/streetfood/seafood to serve).
First let me say that this was a great hotel for the price Staff are very friendly Reception is efficient Breakfast buffet has many choices . The hotel is at the end of one of the best streets for massages and for small local restaurants There is a bus every hour to the beach (which by the way is one of the best on Phuket) And beach towels are supplied The pool is really pristine and has a spa area as well as a children’s area Now the downside - the rooms are quite tired and the beds are on the firm side Ask for a lower pillow if you don’t like high ones There are also a lot of tour groups but that makes breakfast interesting ! Having said that every room in the main buildings look out to a lovely mountain We loved our stay Special thanks to Sudarat for her friendliness every breakfast time
We stayed at the hotel for a week and was happy with the facilities on offer. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and looked after us during our stay. We had a pool access room which was great as we enjoyed days at the pool which was lovely. The food was nice and we ate at the hotel for dinner and lunch on a few occasions.
We enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in the pool access room, which was big and comfortable. Daily housekeeping was available. Staff were friendly and helpful. Pool was fantastic. Plenty of choice for breakfast. We would fefinitely stay here again.
Excellent hotel, outstanding attention from the lady in the reception (by the way, my congratulations to her, we arrive on october 11 at 6-7pm), excellent room, it had everything, it has been the best hotel on my asian trip. But the wifi was terrible. As a teleworker i need to check emails and do VPN connections all the time, it was a shame that the internet was so bad that I have to use my mobile phone as an access point. Pool was wonderful, they have a shuttle bus to the beach as well, and is pretty near that you can go by walking. 100% recommended i hope you solve the wifi problem.
We enjoyed our stay at Alpina, in a pool access room. If you are looking for a resort with an ocean view, this is not the place. It is set back about 700 m from the oceanfront, with a view of a hillside behind it where you can see the top of big Buddha's head. We enjoyed seeing the mist on the mountain some mornings. Our initial room was pretty basic but had all we needed - a lovely rainfall shower and pool access in a very private part of resort - room 3108. It had a view of the hillside and its lovely mist in the morning. It was away from main pool but we could swim to the end of this pool then climb out from ladder to get to main pool for happy hour. After the first 5 nights we'd had problems with our toilet and I got in touch with reception, who promptly moved us to an upgraded room - a grand suite with pool access. This room was amazing, with a jacuzzi, kitchen, lounge, king sized bed (not two beds pushed together) and pool access right near the poolside bar. I recommend this room - 2101. This room had a view of the pool access pool and main pool. Heaven! Stay in block 2 for pool access if you want to be closer to main pool and reception. Stay in grand suite pool access for a special experience. Stay in block 3 if you'd like more privacy - just remember you can't see main pool from there. Everything including ocean is walking distance and flat. So no hills unless you're taking the shorter way to get to Kata night markets (highly recommended). And that's a short hill. Consult google maps to get directions. Shout out to the bartenders who made us great cocktails - try mojito and piña colada at happy hour. Two for one - so 100 baht each. Also we'd like to thank reception who responded to requests and problems quickly. I felt for these guys who often say good morning to guests without so much as a reply. We can't thank you enough. First 3 photos are of room 3801. They also decorated our bed honeymoon style. Remainder are resort and our second room - 2101.
We have just finished a one month stay and it was just awesome. Would have loved to stayed for much longer. A slight hiccup with internet in the first couple of days was quickly sorted out by the lovely Cathie who took the time to come and see what our problem was and she had it fixed in no time. This is an older hotel which is well maintained. We were lucky enough to have a poolside room and it was just lovely. All the staff were amazing. Special thanks to Toi and Por for their sense of fun and their humour at breakfast every morning. Thanks also to Rpon for keeping our room in tip top condition. We can't wait to get back and stay hopefully longer next time. We have nothing negative to say about Alpina and its staff. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Wonderful friendly and helpful staff went out of their way to ensure our holiday was special. To the "boys" at the pool bar - you were amazing. Restaurant food was the best we tasted in Phuket. Our room was clean and well appointed. The resort was handy to beach and local markets. Would visit again. Thank you Cathy and staff for a memorable holiday.
