Close to patong shops and bus to JungceylonPosted Sep 27, 2017
Pros: Liked the friendliness of staff - Had a wonderful kids party that was free and staff were wonderful with our son.
Cons: Charging extra for a room with pool access to a pool that is too hot to swim in - Shade cloths or something over the pool would be great.
Location: Bus every 15 mins to the Jungceylon mall, trip to the Old Patong Market is lots of fun.
Was nice staying here - Liked the pool with the waterfall, we booked a room with pool access but it goes to a pool in the full sun with no shade so it was too hot to swim in, hotel didn't mind moving us to one closer to the other pools. The buffet breakfast was quite crowded and had to wait for table and then wait in line for food and to cook toast. Loved the regular bus to Jungceylon mall but this hotel is up a hill and you need to wait for their bus to come down and bring you up - Alot of the tuk-tuks were not allowed up, not good when you have a hot grumpy 5 year old with you!
place is clean and very relaxing with beautiful viPosted Jul 14, 2017 on Hotels
Worst service we had as there is incident of theft by staff on the day we check out and we were lock out of the room before even checking out even being inform that we will do a late check out during the booking and checking inn.and we been keeping hanging with scape goat excuses. Manager on duty gave as assurance that will response and compensate but till today no reply. It's not the resort that giving the issue but it's the people ..hiring wrong people 1st and last for us to come back to a 4 star resort..

Best of both WorldsPosted Apr 29, 2017 on Hotels
The Novotel Phuket Resort provides a great compromise between the comfort and facilities of a resort while offering the commodity of being right in town and next to the beach. We overall found Phuket to be an overcrowded, overpriced giant tourist trap, but this hotel ended up providing a great retreat from the madness of the place and saved our stay... I can't really fault it for much. The rooms are decent, we had a fantastic seaview and a balcony. The staff was very nice and helpful, the hotel restaurants are good and not that much more expensive than in town . The pools are nice, there are facilities and activities and a convenient shuttle into downtown. A few nagging details which could make it all even better: - The breakfast buffet's food quality leaves to be desired, especially the pastries, ironically. - OK, glass-walled bathrooms are in fashion... but why put the privacy curtain outside the bathroom? Whoever is in the bedroom decides if and when they want to see whoever's in the shower... It's just weird. - The internet connection is good, but you constantly need to re-logon by re-entering the password every time you move around the hotel. It's annoying. - The shuttle to downtown stops around 7pm... it would have been useful to have it running until later, even at a reduced frequency. Those are small details and did not prevent us from thoroughly enjoying our stay, which I found to be great value for money.

Best of everything at NovotelPosted Apr 17, 2017 on Wotif
Couldn't have imagined such a great introduction to Phuket on our first visit here. The whole resort and staff could not have been better. We will be back again now that we have discovered such a gem to stay at in beautiful Phuket .

Great poolPosted Mar 30, 2017
Pros: Close to beach malls and resaurants
Cons: Service around the pool had to find staff to take food and drink orders
Location: Great views from room balconies
Seafood buffet a must. Breakfast average but view from resaurant in the morning was amazing
