Kata Poolside Resort

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Room ok, except some funny things: the madrass was much smaller than the bed, opening plexiglass window between the bathroom and bedroom. Safety box is included. Once we forgot to lock the safe and somebody did it for us without telling us. After trying to open it in vain numerous times, I called the reception and a lady came to open it for us. Wifi was suprisingly fast, 10 - 20 Mbits, except once when it slowed down to 0.1Mbits. We stayed in the second building. Wifi in th reception and the first building were ok. It took 2 days before the staff recognized the problem after I pointed it out. The beach is quite near, about 5 min walk after we managed to cross the street. The Kata beach was quite crowded already in the beginning of November. The Lobster and Prawn restaurant was quite ok, they offer 10% discount for hotel guests and 10% extra based on the bill.

Me and my friends stayed here and its fantastic. Great room sizes, nice pool and the staff are lovely not to mention the location which is perfect we even found a little sports bar called the tavern down the next soi if your looking for football or rugby. All in all a fantastic place for all

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights recently after last staying here years ago and its good to see this place has retained its good managment. The rooms are spacious,clean and quiet being back from the main road The restaurant and room service makes veey good thai food at readonable prices The best thing about this hotel is where its located only about a few hundred metres from kata beach Just out front of the property is numerous shops and places to eat The kata bus station is close also so you can get around to karon,phuket town and patong for about 40 baht per leg Highly recommended

It's not perfect, a little tired perhaps but for the money it is excellent value. A very nice pool area (I would recommend a pool view room) Service is nice and friendly. The breakfast is ok. Lots of Russian guests there. Very close to the beach and there are some decent restaurants nearby.

Room is spacious,clean,A/C is quiet and efficient ,free wifi,security box in room,hair dryer,umbrellas,beach towels supplied,walking distances to beach,shops,money exchange,200 bht for all you can eat breakfasts,great restaurant(Prawn and Lobster)happy staff,well worth the stay 3 weeks.

The rooms are quite nice and spacious, the pool was always clean with a shower to rinse off with. There is a 25% discount on evening meals, but that usually brought it back to what other places were charging. I felt the staff lacked enthusiasm compared to another hotel which was maybe a 4 star hotel. It seemed the staff restaurant staff would only acknowledge you if you stepped foot inside the restaurant. But overall I would recommend this hotel for its convenience to the beach. It basically has sit all, just the staff lack enthusiasm andfriendliness

Nice hotel in kata beach Near the beach Many restaurants around, swimming pool of the hotel is very nice and animated. Staff smiling, Very clean Rooms perfect, I recommand it for any type of travel, solo, work or with family or friends.

First time vacation alone with my son. Four weeks Thailand and staying in Kata Poolsite Resort. Mid July, very low season and no one around. Big swimming pool, close to the beach (5minutes walk). Friendly staff and breakfast was okay. If you stay in the back it's a long walk to the entrance. Enough space to park your motor bike.

12 rooms have view over pool, with 4 having direct access into the pool off balconies which is a great concept though the pool ladders need replacing and pool needs maintenance. Our room was occupied by smokers prior to our stay which made it not so pleasant for us, otherwise the room was clean and tidy. Breakfast was average, staff were friendly.

Just arrived at this hotel after the driver we booked through the hotel to transfer us from the airport to the hotel was over an hour late!!! Double the price of a normal transfer!!!!!! Not even an apology from the staff... We get to the hotel only to find that the rooms we booked are not inter-leading rooms even though we requested this over 6 weeks ago. We then find out that none of the rooms in the class of room we booked are inter-leading!!!! But no one bothered to tell us in the 6 weeks between making the booking and our arrival. Very happy to take your money but not prepared to either apologize nor to do anything to help. Manager is very unfriendly, unhelpful and even aggressive. Staff totally disinterested. Referred us to Agoda to sort out. Made us call them on our phone. Even though it was the hotels fault!!!!Unbelievable!!!! DEFINITELY DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL!!!!! There are other much better hotels all over Phuket!
