“Did not want to leave”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

My family spent three nights relaxing here after two weeks traveling around Thailand. It is just the place to loll by the pools, swim up for cocktails or fruit shakes at the bars, walk out to the beautiful beach, and watch the beautiful sunsets. The rooms were great - roomy, clean and all mod cons. I found the staff very helpful, there is free wifi in the lobby and a handy minimart virtually on the premises. There are great cheap restaurants on the beach right outside, or good food in the hotel itself. The only thing that would make it perfect would be hotel transfer from Phuket airport. Otherwise, we can't wait to return.

Very nice hotel... nice pool or should i say pools(there are 4-5 of them)...just on the beach, though most of the rooms are too far from the beach... The service was just pathetic and the staff totally unhelpful... We were given one of the worst rooms, because our flight had got late and we reached late.... When we requested to give us a better room, we were told that it has been alloted since we were late.. and nothing can be done!!
We stayed there for 4 days but the hotel couldn't book us a bike. We were asked to come early in the morning to the reception and to book one for the day. |The weirdest was that you need to give a certain amount of minimum order to avail room service, else they charge you extra......from the hotel's restaurant!!
Very far from Patong and other happening areas!! Kamala beach has a some good restaurants to eat though, but no 'nightlife'.

We had prebooked and were stuck, but wouldn't return to it ever!!

My wife and I stayed at KBR for 3 nights in February 2012. We were upgraded to a "bungalow" room located just steps from the pool/restaurant nearest the beach. Room was clean and very comfortable. Pool and pool bar were great, restaurant served excellent food. Ah, and NO KIDS!!!...that was great. They are at the resort next door having their own good time.

Head to Laem Sing Beach, just north of the resort for a really nice beach without all of the hotel traffic. Water is beautiful.

Scooter rental is 400 baht direct from the resort. I highly recommend that as a way to get around. Get out and see Kamala. Lots of good restaurants, shopping, and bars.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

I have just stayed at Kamala beach for 7 nights and had a great stay. The resort is huge, but somehow it does not feel this way. We wanted to relax and found that a hotell without children was perfect in that respect. The atmosphere here is relaxed. The grounds are well taken care of and the room very clean. The food at Prime Kitchen by the Sea is very nice and not expensive. We tried almost every Thai dish on the menue and they were all very nice!

But, we had requested a twin room and upon arrival it was confirmed that we would get just that. But when we entered the room it was a double bed. Not a major crises, but when you travel with a friend you like to have your own bed and not share. The guy that helped us with our luggage said someone would stop by from house keeping and seperate the two beds that made up the double bed. We could have done that our selves, but a big double madress was on top of the bed(s). We waited for a while, but nothing happened. We both called the front desk and went down to talk to them. And they were not very helpful. Nothing could be done. I asked why they confirmed that we got room with twin beds when indeed we did not. Their only response was that we had a suite (we booked a regular room) and should be happy about that. In the end we decieded to share the double bed. My impression is that the staff is helpfull up to a point, but when asked to help out they shut down.

Would I stay again? Maybe. I think one visit to Kamala Beach is enough for me. Nothing very wrong, it`s just that one visit is enough I think

Another thing: uopon arrival to Phuket International Airport DO NOT go for a taxi from the company based to the left just as you walk into the arrivals hall. I don`t remember the name of the company. But the guy that persuaded us to go for their offer wore a beige t-shirt. The driver also wore beige. The reason for my warning about them is that when we were on our way from the airport all of a sudden the diver turned of the road and parked in front of a house without explaining why. Feels kind of scary when a taxi does this. The driver went in to the house and we were left in the car and understood nothing. All of a sudden a girl opend the car door and wanted to know if we had booked a hotell room and booked taxi to go back to the airport. We had booked our stay. But she tried to talk us into taking the same taxi service back to airport after our stay was over. As if......When we said that we would think about it and could call, she said that they did not accept booking over the telephone. She then left the car and the driver came back and we arrived at the hotell safely. But it was a bit scary!!

This was my 6th time going to Thailand and have experienced this kind of thing a few times before and do not like it!!
