This is a budget hotel located between Kata and Karon beaches in Phuket. It is a good mid-range option in a somewhat overpriced area of Thailand. I arrived late at night and the man at the front desk didn't speak much English, so the experience might be different if I had checked in during the day.
The room itself was very clean, but very hot. And the a/c was quite poor so it took most of the night before it was cool enough for me to get a decent sleep. There is a tiny "minibar" in the room but since there is no power when you leave the room, nothing in there is very cold either. The bed was fine, if not a bit on the hard side. The wifi seems to only work in the lobby and not in the rooms (or not in my room anyway).
The included breakfast buffet was very good, and the restaurant where it is served is quite charming. The pools looked excellent and it is a short walk to the beaches. I thought Karon beach was the nicer of the two.
I booked one tour through the agency in the hotel, and it was decent enough and good value. But every other shop in town is a tour agency as well, so do shop around.
