My wife and I stayed here for a week during December 2013. This hotel is located in a quiet and peaceful area a few minutes from the Main Patong Beach. So if you want to stay in a quieter area away from the buzz, this is the place to be.

The hotel is nice and clean with big spacious bedrooms. The staff were very friendly and helpful all the time. The hotel has a good and clean pool.

There are a few minor things some people will not be happy with. The hotel doesn't have a very good equpped restaurant. The breakfasts were good if you arrived early. Breakfast were served from 06:30 - 10:30. If you arrive around 08:30, breakfast is cold. We wanted to have dinner at the hotel one evening and we were the only people wanting to eat at the hotel. We waited adout 40 minutes for our food. One kind of get the impression that the hotel doesnt really want you have your lunch and dinner at the hotel. We ended up having two dinners at the hotel next door.

We were very happy with the room. It was very spacious and the house keeping services were very good. We had an issue with having no hot water a few times but nothing to serious.

The hotel has a shuttle service the drives to Patong and back a few times everyday. We also arranged for the shuttle to pick is up at the airport at 03:00 in theh morning and the driver was on time and very frindly!

All and all, if you want a luxurious stay this hotel will probably not meet all your standards. If you want a good place to sleep with a good view this will be just fine.

Don't get deceived by how simple it looks in the outside. Once you are in the room, you will see for sure how nice and big the rooms are. Quite a surprise really. Everything is clean esp. the floor. We had a room fronting the sea so it was just nice to relax at night sitting at the terrace, drinking beer, listening to the sound of the waves while you can hear distant partying going on.

All the tours we had was booked by the hotel and all was smooth sailing and on time. It was nice to stay here and they are very reliable.

Oh, and we love the buffet breakfast. A lot of choices as well :)

My Partner and I had a 2 week holiday in Phuket, we stayed in this resort for 1 week for R&R, we really enjoyed this resort, the staff were friendly, our room was large and the views across the water and over to the other islands reminded us of Hamilton Island(great barrier reef) without the price tag. We had a great relaxing time as we were just outside and away from the hussle and bussle of the heart of Patong which was only 10 minutes away by shuttle.

I've spent 6 nights at Absolute beach resort and very happy for my accommodation. All the rooms have nice view to the beach. Swimming pool is excellent where i could spend and hour everyday. Staffs are very friendly and helpful. The only thing i didn't like which was insects like mostiques in room sometime, cause this resort base on a hill and green trees are surround. Internet is free and very fast in room.
Tri Trang beach is in walking distance from resort, Absolute beach resort's beach is small and not very clean that why i had go to Patong beach and Tri Trang beach for swimming.
All in All, highly recommend this resort for a couple and people like quite place to relax.

Absolute Beach Resort is only three months old. The rooms were very clean and nicely appointed. The pool area was beautiful. It was nice to be a little away from the hustle of Pattong Beach. I would recommend the hotel as being very clean and quiet. Pool area was fantastic, and often we had it all to ourselves!

There is a cordoned off beach, however the bottom is all rocks, so we only went in once and stuck to the pool. Drinks at the pool bar are considerably more expensive than the mini bar in the room. We bought drinks from the 711 and took them to the pool. We were in a room near the pool, If you want a view, it is a long hike to the pool down stairs.

While the resort is lovely there are a few negatives:

- Trips into town were pricey at 300 Bhat which is around $10AUD. There is a free shuttle which runs a few times a day (we didn't find the times convenient).
- Staff couldn't understand the most simple of requests. Checking in and out took an hour on each occasion.
- There are lots of stairs. We are young and fit, I would not reccomend this hotel to anyone who will have an issue with climbing multiple flights of steep stairs
- There is no internet - although this is available at the next hotel which is a short walk
- Not the best hotel to bring a Thai "friend" back to. Staff were very judgemental and tried to charge for the extra person even though they were not staying overnight. Security were hovering outside the hotel door when she was leaving
