Firstly - Patong is a DUMP!! It's like the Blackpool of Thailand or something. It's full of obnoxious Australians... If you want to look at sleezy lady boys and visit dubious "massage parlors" then this is the place for you.
The hotel - the food was overpriced for what it was, nothing like the standard of food we'd had in the rest of Thailand. At breakfast my husband ordered me an omlette and it was still uncooked in the middle.
Again, it was full of loud obnoxious Australians which ruined the last 4 nights of our holiday. The evening entertainment was hilarious but only because it was soo terrible.
The positives - The location, (although others may find this a negative) it was about a 10 minute drive, on the free bus provided by the hotel, into Patong. which was good because Patong was gross(but others may want a little more going on around them) The beach was beautiful though and very quiet which was nice. The pool was also really nice and plenty of beds so we were all fighting for them! The hotel was spotlessly clean and the staff helpful.
I wouldn't stay here again.
