“Good location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2012

Stayed at the APK Resort & Spa for 15 days. Hotel it is in a good location the staff down stairs are very lazy cleaning staff very friendly. The rooms are not sound proof my husband had to bang on the wall one night at 2am & tell them to turn down the music as we had not had a decent night sleep for 4 nights you could not shower unless the whole bathroom flooded The breakfast is not what you call a nice meal they do not cater for anyone but Thai we had to ask for cutlery very morning to butter a slice of toast the staff could not careless. The pool is not very good & is not safe for children.

Room Tip: The rooms are all the same very noisy & have no view I would not take children to this hotel

Stayed at APK Resort and Spa from 2nd March 2012 for 14 nights. Did not want to believe the poor reviews but found out for myself that they are all true !

The first night we arrived the receptionist upgraded our room as the standard room we have booked was not available. The upgraded room was quite nice but was at the front of the hotel on the very busy road, it was difficult to sleep that night with the traffic noise. The second day we moved to the standard room which was very small compared to the upgraded room we had on the first night. The balcony was only big enough for one person to stand on and the view was off the next building and the local RAT running up and down the road !

What others have said about the rude, very unfriendly staff is all true. The receptionists have very poor spoken English and did not smile all the time we were there. ( It costs nothing to say Hello or Good morning or even just a smile ). They were so unhelpful and clearly did not want to be working there !

The tables in the restaurant were dirty and covered with insects. I only ate there on one occasion and that was because it was raining outside. The staff are not interested to serve you any food or drinks, they just stand around talking. The only drinks they had there were coke, singha or water and they charge 50 t/bht for a small bottle of water, when you can get bottled water at the seven eleven shop down the road for just 8 t/bht. They dont have any ice either. The food i ordered was disgusting, i wouldn't give it to my dog ! We had paid for breakfast but only ended up having breakfast there once. Breakfast should be until 10am so we went down at 9am on our first morning there. The food was left out in the heat with flies everywhere. All the fruit had gone and there was no juice or milk left ! The choice of food was just bread covered with flies or curry, rice or noodles ! The worse breakfast i have ever seen.

The roof top pool area just needs to be knocked down. There were about 10 broken sunbeds available and 4 chairs. The pool is very small and dirty with missing tiles.There is no pool bar, if you want a drink then you have to go downstairs to the restauant to get one and wait 30 mintues for someone to finally serve you. Terrible service.

The hotel is more like a 2 star and is very dirty. It is situated on one of the buisiest roads in Patong. The traffic comes to a stand still between 4pm - 9pm and it is very difficult to cross the road without being knocked down by a motorbike/scooter.

Unfortunatly, it is not possible to find any smile at the APK Resort and Spa. You will definitely find a better hotel where you will feel welcome and treated correctly.

Room Tip: Stay at another hotel !

The room is totally small,the wardrobe is broken,water in the bathroom is very small and i have to take long time to finish my shower.The info and photo of room is misleading.However,the location is good and it take around 15 minute to walk to patong beach,the services is quite good.It is not worth for the price and no next time for this hotel.

Room Tip: Do not book for the economic room if you request for more space, the room is totally small.I can get...

The room was quite nice and clean enough to stay there. The room also had a balcony (don't expect to have a nice view as you will just see the next building).

The food at the restaurant can't be recommended. Also, the tables in the restaurant were quite dirty. The staff was not interested to serve any food or drinks. They even didn't have a problem to continue telling that they don't have any Coke, Sprite or Fanta.

I made the reservation directly at the hotel. One of my criterias was that the hotel has free WiFi. The staff told us that there would be WiFi on the ground floor. Soon after having made the reservation I wanted to try the Internet. The staff just didn't tell me that the Internet is only working in the ground floor of the main building (this hotel contains about 4 buildings).

At the last day of my stay, the reception called me at 7am to let me know that my friend and I should come downstairs as the bus is waiting for the tour we booked. This call ended in a long discussion as they almost wanted to charge us the price for a tour we haven't booked!

As APK Resort & Spa offers their rooms at a rather cheap rates, many young travellers stay at this hotel. The behaviour of this guest is not the best. This might be the main reason for the unfriendly behaviour of the staff of APK Resort & Spa.

Thailand is famous for it's hospitality. Unfortunately, it's not possible to find any smile at APK Resort & Spa. You will definitely find another hotel where you will feel welcome and treated correctly.

Room Tip: The rooms all seem to be nice.
