“Good Points and Bad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2010

I don't know what they use as a potpurri but when we opened our room it stunk of it and the kids didn't want to go inside. It was some mixture of Menthol and mothballs and wood gone mouldy. We put it outside and over the day the room became fresher. Once the overpowering musky smell was gone the Rooms were nice and clean and serviced daily. We didn't hear any noise of Traffic as previous reviewers suggested but our rooms were in the middle of the resort. The Big pool was beautiful to swim in and the resort had a lovely feel about it. Our Breakfast was excellent probably the best of our trip. Not buffet, Made to order, fruits, croissants, danishes, cereal, poached eggs, bacon, sausages, the works. Its not in a great location but as another reviewer said, I don't understand people complaining about location its easy to see and know this by looking on any map before you come. They offer a free shuttle service to the beach so I find no problem with resorts in slightly out of the way places with cheaper prices offering a shuttle. One time the manager picked us up in his ute and let the kids sit in the back of it. We loved it, with the wind in our hair, the kids laughed and waved at everyone the whole way home. Its these personal touches that make a stay memorable.
Aside of the smelly room at first we had 3 wonderful days at Panta. There was an electrical problem in our room on the last night which was very annoying but one of those incidences that are out of the blue and not really the resorts fault. But we did feel it wasn't handled with very well. And I agree with others that Internet should be Free when staying at a Resort.

We stayed here for one night, were welcomed with friendly smiles. The room was clean, spacious and well equipped. It was very quiet during our stay. We ate at the resturant and was very expensive with additional costs. Over all we really liked our stay however it was a long walk to places, they did have shuttles but I think you would need to get a scooter for a long stay

At Panta is beatiful, its also great to be away from the "touristy" places. There are temples just around the corner. It is a bit out of the way but, if you turn right on the road and walk 10 minutes you'll get to Thalang's centre which has food shops, motorbike hire and fast internet that is A LOT cheaper than at At Panta. They rip you off there for sure. They actually charged me twice for my room (i've since got a refund) so make sure you check your bank statement after! The beds are very hard (thai style) but you get used to them. Having a farm next door was great too.

I highly recommend hiring a motorbike/scooter. Once you get used to the choas its actually a fun and cheap way of seeing phuket. We went to a pub with a band singing in Thai, nobody spoke english and we don't speak Thai, it was the best night we had we had so much fun hanging with the locals and they made us feel very welcome!

Its a beauiful, "Thai style" hotel, the free breakfast is good. But I do recommend eating, drinking, and using internet elsewhere to save money if you feel the need. But it is Thailand so in the scheme of things it really doesn't cost that much, its just more expensive than Patong hotels, however it is more genuine and peaceful...esp after coming back from an evening out in Patong!

My boyfriend and I stayed at At Panta last month and loved it. I really don't understand how its getting all these negative views. We thought it was stunning, the pool was beautiful (we also had it to ourselves on evening, bliss!) Our room (Poolside Thai Villa) was exquisite. I think the other reviewers may have stayed in the cheaper older rooms, in which case I would greatly recommend to anyone staying at At Panta (or any resort for that matter) pay the little bit extra to upgrade to nicer rooms, we did it at all 3 resorts on this trip and havent regretted it once.

Another common complaint by people was its a bit far out of the way. All I can say to that, is Google Maps isn't that hard to go to. Do a little research on where the resort is before you book like we did, therefore leaving out any room for disappointment. We found it a nice change after staying in the middle of Patong beach. Also, we hired scooters for 250baht per day, so drove ourselves from At Panta to wherever we wanted to go.... The stunning Surin Beach was only a ten min bike ride away at the most.

The staff were very friendly. The only gripe we had, was we were eagerly looking forward to the poolbar cocktails, but waited around in the pool for happy hour and no-one came to serve us.

Other than that, we thought it was a beautiful resort with very friendly staff.
