CRM-Astudo, Front Office Manager at Sawaddi Patong Resort & Spa, responded to this review, 5 March 2012
Greetings from Sawaddi Patong

I am very happy to hear that your overall experience was so good from start to finish on your recent stay with us. Indeed, we are always aiming to please guests as much as we can and thus we are happy to relocate guests into quieter rooms as and when asked as you found.

I see you have also had a good experience with are chef and kitchen staff there. I will be sure to pass on these complements to them, something of course they always delight in hearing from guests about the food they create.

I will also pass on your general comments about how efficient and well run the resort was which is also always so pleasing to hear.

We hope to see you again of course if you find yourself back on the island.

Sincere regards from all of us here.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Sawaddi Patong. The staff was pleasant and accommodations were generally comfortable. The resort was previously a Best Western property that was purchased and renovated a couple of years ago by the Centara resort group, which runs some nice hotels throughout Thailand. Rooms are spacious and the pool area is large and relaxing. The in-room free wireless was a nice amenity but unreliable. The resort is slightly out of the main area of Patong, which is good for noise and crowds, and it runs a one-way shuttle to the beach several times a day. The walk back is a straight shot and takes about 15 to 20 minutes. We had a very decent dinner one night at the restaurant; however, the breakfast buffet was below average, with most of the “hot” foods being stone cold, even at 6:30 a.m. Stick with the made-to-order omelet and noodle soup stations. Be wary of the sliced fruit (surprised by the number of guests who think it’s perfectly fine to pick through buffet items with their hands rather than using the provided serving utensils). Overall, the resort was a decent value for money.

Just a note on the area…Patong Beach is extremely crowded, touristy and party oriented. If that’s the scene you’re looking for, then it’s a good spot. However, we spent a good amount of time touring around Phuket province, and there are certainly some quieter, more pleasant beaches, including Kata and Karon, which are near Patong. Better yet, skip Phuket altogether and spend your coastal time in Thailand in the Krabi province. It’s more serene, while still offering plenty of quality accommodations and restaurants. You can also easily get to Ko Phi Phi and the other popular day tour destinations from Krabi.

I was here twice in 1 trip, first time was for 4 days before heading off to Koh Phi Phi, the 2nd time was on my way back to Bangkok from Koh Phi Phi for 2 days. The location of the hotel is a little far from the beach, but being new to the area I didn't mind the walk as it gave me the chance to explore Phuket. Eventually we rented scooters from next door and the travel to and from the beach made it easy and convenient.

First impressions of the hotel/ room, "WOW, all this for only $30USD!?" The hotel was attractive from the outside, the rooms were very clean and big, had a nice view of the pool from the third floor both times, bathrooms were big and also clean. Everything was very modern.

The day I left the hotel to go to the Phuket airport, I forgot to check my safe and left my passport and some cash in there, I called the hotel and they got someone to run my passport and the money I had in there to drive it up to me. Unfortunately there is plenty of traffic in Phuket and the hotel was quite far from the hotel. I missed my flight.

Would stay here again though if I only had to pay $30, it was a steal of a deal!!!

I stayed here for 4 nughts with my 3 kids and anither family. Do not stay at the ground and basement rooms - mosquito infested and smells. Breakfast was the worst we had in any hotel in our travels - can't believe how anyone can get breakfast wrong even their bread was served fozen you had to toast it twice! My 4 yo was alseep im the room and the head waiter refused us to take toast up to her room.

The walls are so thin we had to endure our neighbour's nightly rendevous with his 'Thai girl friend' - not good when you have small children.

Location is on a run down laneway with cheap dodgy shops and is 15 min walk to shopping district. This is inconvenient especially on a hot, humid day when streets all smell of rotten sewer.

Do NOT stay at this hotel. Stay closer to Jungcheylon shopping centre where its more central to everything especially if you have kids.

The people who stayed at this hotel tend to be 20-30 yo males who belong at a backpacker hostel so i guess the better reviews are all relative. We are 40 yo with young children of high socio economic background and have just come back from KC Resort at Koh Samui (5star) and loved KC- true 5 star. Sawaddi is not 4 star it claims to be more like 1.5 star.

Room Tip: Stay on top level facing pool. Do not stay at basement level - we were given one and paid 300 baht p...
