What a beautiful hotel. Away from the hustle and bustle of the more popular spots but spectacular. Friendly staff and close to the departure spots for excursions. Excursions can be arranged at the hotel. The breakfasts are great and their live music evening with buffet is amazing. Rawai is also close to the Big Buddha

This place is absolutely awesome. Would give RAWAI palm beach beach resort a 10/10 . The rooms are great and the people are awesome. The pool is huge and the pool bar is great. Rooms are big and clean. Staff are brilliant. It’s a awesome place to stay.👍😎

I don't want to write something that will take you the all day to read! So, for a country like Thailand, the hotel was amazing, the food was amazing. But if you're traveling to Thailand you don't want to stay in the hotel!! Please don't do it.. Enjoy the country!! I can only give 4 starts for a small failure : The furniture needs to be repaired.. Our room got some old furniture. But just like I've said, for a country like Thailand.. 5*

We spent 2 weeks on deluxe pool access room (late january). We enjoyed our stay but there is something to fix also. Let’s start with the bad things. Housekeeping was the worst we have seen a while. When you are on holiday you don’t want to stress out if you get toilet paper, towels or daily complimentary water replaced. They took out towels and do not replace them etc. We also needed to clean the room by ourselves. Housekeeping needs a big step up. If you use a lot air conditioning, room indoor air gets damp and stale. Surfaces gets moist also. Air conditioning should be improved. Ok then the good staff. Location is good. Resort is on the west/south end of the Rawai beach road. The closest money exchange, mini markets, restaurants very close. Hotel has own taxi stand and shuttle service to swimming beaches. Rawai beach is working beach and great location for island hopping. Not very touristy area. Local bus to Phuket town goes beside hotel. The pool access room was very nice. Just a bit worn out. Pool access room has own private terrace with sun beds and private pool access. Room has reasonably priced mini bar which has room for your own drinks too, in room safety box etc. Wi-Fi was ok. This room was the reason we came here. Staff were always nice and smiley. Including house keepers. We ate breakfast every day and on pool days we ate lunch at the Jamaica lunch restaurant. We didn’t have dinner at the hotel. Breakfast was nice. We think it’s probably more than a lunch buffet than breakfast buffet. Lots of warm dishes to eat. Fresh omelette can be ordered also. Special thanks to lovely “coffee lady” who always kept our mugs filled up 😀 Jamaica lunch restaurant has basic Thai food, burgers, pizza, salad etc. Food was ok for the price. The pool area was very nice. We had room on upper pool. Pool was quite quiet all the time. The lower pool was more populated. For kids there is man-made mini beach. Our overall stay was great and we would stay again if get back to Rawai.

A very nice place, warm welcome loads of smiles. Room is really good, very large, great sea view. Staff very helpful with arranging trips. It's best to hire a bike to get out to places in and around Rawai. The beach is just for boats to Moor up on and you can't sunbathe, rent a bike and head to Karon or Kata beach 15 mins away. Breakfast standard but cooked to a good standard. Beware that on checking in you will be required to hand over 3000 baht as a deposit I've never done this in Thailand before but on checking out you get it back bit of a pain really. Our room was clean everyday but was set in the far side of hotel grounds and on the 5th floor. Air con good WiFi below average. We had a nice stay here staff are friendly and help you out but due to a few negatives I give it 3 stars.

Quite a nice place. I little far from the main parts of Phuket but if you want somewhere that is not too busy but still has other things to offer at night this place will suit. If you can get a pool access room, it is well worth it, you get your little private pool area with your own sun lounges. Great rooms plenty of space.

We stayed for 11 nights from mid Feb. We had seen mixed reviews and were a little uncertain of what to find. We were pleasantly surprised having been allocated a floor 5 room to find a spacious bedroom and lovely bathroom area. Breakfasts were ok, good choice. The cooked wasn't always hot. The two themed night dinners were exceptional and good value. Excellent pool. Staff all welcoming, kind And friendly. The beach near the hotel is not a swim/sunbed beach but the hotel runs shuttles to two very nice beaches every day , always reliable . The area is actually fairly quiet, by Phuket standards , but enough happening within 15 mins walk. Having travelled to other areas on trips if you want lots of night life etc it may be a tad quiet.

This was our second trip to this hotel, the first was 3 years ago, and the hotel now shows signs of wear and tear - which is a shame as it's a good hotel. Bad points were the lack of sunloungers around the pool, most are gone by 0800 !! Breakfasts are now a rushed afair, they have introduced a counter for eggs, bacon etc but it lacks complete personal touch. Sure the wait is less but all fried eggs are pre-cooked and cold - if you ask for a fresh one to by fried they will not oblige, bacon is always under cooked and fatty. Good points are great pool, large rooms and good location on Rawai beach. Staff are friendly.

Didn't stay here but it looked really nice so we decided to go in for dinner one evening. Big mistake. We both ordered off of the Thai section of the menu being in Thailand and all. It was the worst meal we have both had in our 3 weeks in Thailand, no flavour, very little veg in a vegetable dish, one potato, 3 small pieces of broccoli and some small pieces of onion, there was supposed to be nuts in the dish I ordered but they were missing, Very poor attitude from the manager when we pointed out our disappointment. Got the feeling the staff didn't care. The person that created the dishes (I won't call them a chef) defiantly needs retrained.

The deluxe suite was comfortable, clean and spacious with the plunge pool being a highlight. The food at the restaurant and cafe was close to being disgusting and the breakfast buffet was very average. Stay here if you are not a foodie.
