What's the price
With such a cost of the tour, there are a lot of additional costs. Even sun loungers and umbrellas on the beach are paid. Upon arrival, they take a deposit of 200 USD (although the site says 100 USD or 3000 THB) and do not even expect that it will be returned to you. Be sure to find some services that you unknowingly used. Mini-bar is paid, but there is no price list in the room. We ordered bathrobes ourselves, but we learned that they were paid only upon departure.
Even the slippers in the room turned out to be paid props.1/1
I advise you to ask when you check in to immediately remove all paid options from the room, so that later you don’t have to prove that something is missing. We had breakfast included. Everything is beautiful, but the portions are tiny, it is inconvenient to take 50 small plates, and you already have to pay extra for additional items on the menu.
Alcohol is very expensive, nothing is free.
Pools are small. There is a beautiful panoramic pool, but you can’t swim up to the edge of the side for a photo, the hotel staff will immediately yell at you. I agree, it’s not the safest side, there is a chance of falling off, but why not put additional fences there?
Most of the holidaymakers in January 2023 are Chinese, they also have 10 days off for the Chinese New Year. The audience is noisy, they think only about themselves, very loudly sort out the relationship between themselves and with the staff.
There are few parties in the hotel, only a couple of times a day there were DJ sets by the pool, and Chinese tourists need a holiday, so they constantly listened to music in their speakers or just on their phones.1/1
Otherwise, that is, outside the hotel we felt great. Phuket is a heavenly place. Great people, more than half of Russians are on the streets of resorts and on excursions. Many have come for the winter. Here all problems are forgotten, people just enjoy life. Prices have risen slightly. I don't know what's wrong with real estate, they say there's an unprecedented rise in prices, but for cafes, food and excursions everything is within reason, almost like in our past trips.
They say they don't look a gift horse in the mouth, but for us this horse turned out to be very expensive. As a result, the tour was not very comfortable: it is better to choose hotels within your means.
