Let's start with the hotel nice place would have normally give this hotel a 4, but haven't done because it is ripping off its guests with the cost of transport. I asked to day to book a taxi to the airport and there wanted 1400 baht, I walked into the town and got it for 800 baht. In UK £ that's a £12.50 saving or +40%.
If you book a taxi from the hotel to Patong 400 baht, £10 to travel 3 miles a total ripoff.
These are the same prices everywhere on the island, whether it's a tuk tuk or taxi, there is very little bartering in fact nil with most drives.
Metered taxis are good if you can get one,
We have been to Bangkok and Chang Mia in Thailand and both places we travel by both tuk tuk and Taxi at one third of the cost we are paying here in Phuket.
I would not come here again, it's a RIP OFF island and as tourists we need to stay away.
