We have been looking once again plenty of nice hotels and after having dropped off many nice ones, these tree are on the list. And we just can not make a decision between them. Maybe someone can help us with making up our minds :)
We are a big family with children aged 4 - 17. We like a bit of shopping, nice restaurants, lovely beach, clean and beautiful hotel, snorkeling, kids love good pools and waterslides...
Earlier we have stayed at Karon, Kata, Kamala and Khao Lak south beach. And loved everyone of them. We have visited Phi Phi for one night, Naiharn beach and Similan for day tour, waterfals, elephant trekking etc trips and on next holiday we are not planning to do anything special. At least not at Khao Lak. Just enjoying the rest of holiday and lovely weather (hopefully).
The hotels we have stayed at are Sunwing Kamala, Phuket Orchid resort, Centara Kata, Khao Lak Emerald and Andaman Legacy. And we have liked every hotel. All of them differ a little from each other, so there is not any special type of hotel that we like. Just need to be clean, big pools and a child-friendly hotel with good breakfast. Lovely environment and beautiful plants and decorating is a bonus though.
If the teenager was not traveling with us, we would probably choose Apsaras or Kantary. But I am a bit worried if the young man will enjoy at all if the place is too quiet. He does not go on wondering himself anywhere, but enjoys for example nightshopping with us. But maybe he would be satisfied if we just visited Khao Lak center for couple times.
But would it be more life at Nang thong?
I am really confused. I have read so much about these beaches and these hotels and just have gotten more confused.
Thank you for every effort!
