Recent guest reviews
Lovely staff and nice hotel and breakfast. We were a bit disappointed with the pool area as it didn't get the sun all the time and there were'nt enough sun loungers but when we went to the beach all was forgiven. The beach, the sea, the fruit shakes, everything was perfect and we realised our hotel was perfectly positioned and we were very lucky to have booked Sugar Marina Fashion.
Our stay here started off somewhat badly when we got put in a hot room at the back of the hotel. The view was of a gutted apartment next door and didn't look like we expected from the photos online. We asked for a new room and were upgraded to a suite that was much better, with a view of the pool. The staff was really nice and accommodating. They set us up with taxis etc., very easily and conveniently. I think that the place just needs a little maintenance here and there before it becomes run down. Our overall experience was good. You can rent motorbikes from the hotel. It's centrally located near Kata Beach where there are fun activities. Short motorbike ride to Patong.
I have stayed at this hotel for about a week for our holidays over the new year's eve. In the overall my experience has been good. The room was big with a nice balcony and it was quiet. On the downside it was very difficult to adjust the temperature of the shower and the breakfast despite the variety of food available was of average quality with tasteless pastries and fruit. Maybe the savoury option wad better. The check out process wasn't completely smooth. Before they let us leave they had to check that we have left the flip flops and the beach tatami mat in the room. Our shuttle bus was waiting for us to go to the arport and they had also many other customer's rooms to check. The pool inside the building is very small and the water rather cold. So we never used the swimming pool. In thw whole however my experience has been rather good. The location of this hotel is perfect literally 5 mins from the beach and from restaurants and shops.
The hotel is well located in central Kata. Looks good online with trendy photos and clean rooms. Room was fairly average. Cleaning staff do a decent job every day. Breakfast is pretty good for Phuket. They do charge for everything i.e. 50Baht for a bucket of ice. Room check at checkout was odd and was accused of breaking a glass - which wasn't the case and they did say that it was fine eventually, but they don't let you leave until they've inspected the room. All in all the hotel is fine for what you pay.
We have come here for over 5 years, both as a couple with no kids, now with two in tow. This time we stayed in room 1108, a great option for us (couple with a 4 year old and 9 month old). Would give a higher rating, but their prime season rates are just silly.
- We had been staying 3 hotels on our holiday and this hotel is the best of all yet the cheapest.... - Love the room since its super clean and full of room facilities - Great location (short walk to the beach, plenty of restaurants and tour company) - Lovely swimming pool view - Worth the money If we go to Phuket again, definitely gonna come back here!!! Just a bit to comment; Low variety of Breakfast
The hotel is located near the beach in the centre of Kata and is one of the Sugar Marina hotel chain. My room was quirkily designed in a 'British designers' theme. Pros - good location, nice modern rooms and the contents of the mini bar were free! Cons - swimming pool was a bit small (mind you, why would you use it being so close to the lovely beach?) and breakfast location (Black Pearl restaurant) was a bit frumpy (although the food choice and quality were fine)..
Pretty good value for money. nice rooms and very close to Kata beach whilst still in a quiet street off the main drag. The bed was pretty poor though - double bed was actually two singles pushed together. That aside though, I'd stay there again.
Stayed there for 6 night in November. Hotel in good location, nest to the bars, stores and just few minutes away from the beach. WIFI not the best, keep login off after a while. Pool very small. Well, you got for you paying for. I enjoyed my vacation in Phuket, but not so much my stay at this hotel.
We spent in this hotel 3 nights. It is a pretty good value for money. Pros: The staff were friendly and speaks English. On the second day we realised our TV is not working and let know about it the staff when we went to have lunch (10.30pm). After about 30 seconds two guy appeared in our room and inspected the TV. They could make it work so they take it off. After we get back to the hotel (in 1 our) there was a brand new working TV. The beach is about 1 minute straight walk. You got everything around what you need but it's not as busy and crazy as Patong. The towels and the bedding was perfectly clean. Cons: If you have a careless neighbour who likes watching TV in the middle of the night prepare with earplugs. Strange looking dirty towels in front of the elevators. The bathtub was not looking clean and it also had some limescale. There is a glass door between the bathroom and the bedroom although you can pull down a shade but you can still enjoy the view as your loved one making a No.2. :D
