My wife and I stayed at Le Meridien, Phuket, in 2009, and loved the experience. Normally we don't stay at the same place twice, as we prefer to see and experience different locations when we travel. However, for health reasons we needed a relaxed, less hectic holiday this time around, and we knew from our past experience that we would get that at Le Meridien. Le Meridien has much to offer, as the below sample will hopefully demonstrate: - Fantastic breakfast buffets looking out over the pool and ocean. Lunches on the beach. Dinners at a variety of restaurants and price points, all within the resort. Scheduled activities - like water aerobices. Unscheduled activities, like beach massages. Unique experiences such as Valentine the baby elephant who visited the resort twice a day to pose with the tourists, accept food and the occasional handful of money for his handler. The convenience of being only a 5 minute taxi, bus or Took Took ride from the heart of Patong BUT also having immediate access to the private beach fronting directly onto the resort for when you just want to get away from the hustle and bustle. The friendly staff who go out of their way to be polite and assist in making your holiday as relaxing (or busy) as you want it to be. All-in-all we had a terrific holiday - again - at Le Meridien. Highly recommended for families or couple.

Great rooms, exceptional service. Beautiful views. The only consideration with this property is the location. It's 25 minutes to Patong and the taxi costs 1,400 round trip or about $42. It really starts to add up tima and money if you go back and forth. If you just stay at the resort it's really nice. The property does show a bit of it's 20 year age and the rooms can be a long walk from the elevators; overal, the room itself makes up for any deficiencies.

My wife and I stayed here a few nights as part of our honeymoon. We were a little concerned when we first arrived because the entrance is off an old, sketchy "road". Fortunately, the hotel itself is very nice and the rooms are great, but privacy is somewhat lacking; the villa porches look out at each other and part of the shower wall (that other people occasionally walk past) is partially see-through at night. The receptionist staff were polite, but no one who worked for the resort/spa were as friendly as the most miserable person we saw in all the rest of Phuket/Thailand. They seemed unhappy with their job, which we attributed to them having to deal with obnoxious people (the majority of the people staying there). However, the staff was still nicer than what you would find in a place like New York City. The breakfast buffet was not very good and had few options. We also ate dinner there during their special "Thai Night". Unfortunately, we had better and more authentic Thai food at a local tex-mex bike stop for less than half what we paid at the resort. At the spa, I got the Golden Tulip Deluxe massage, while my wife got a head and foot massage. In both cases the massages were painful, despite repeated requests to use less pressure. When my wife asked the masseuse to avoid certain locations, they would concentrate on those locations instead. Shortly after the massage, we both developed rashes. The spa was nice enough to provide us with antihistamines when we went to talk to them. Overall, the atmosphere was unpleasant. There are multiple agents going around trying to sell time shares for the resort (they are going private) and most of the other guests when we stayed there were impolite. Lastly, the resort offers a free shuttle to a nearby beach. The scenery is beautiful, but the beach is overcrowded and incredibly touristy. There are so many great beaches in Phuket and many have little to no people at them; you are better off going elsewhere.

The location is perfect...just up the hill, about 5 minute walk from the beach (not to mention the feel safe away from the water in case something bad happens). It is right in between Kata and Karon, which makes it so easy to shop, eat, and pick one of the 2 beaches to spend the day on. The breakfast was good; the service was excellent; they have a fire show and a Thai Boxing show once a week plus a buffet - it's definitely worth the money. The only somewhat bad thing about the resort was the internet...I thought there would be a in-room connection, but you actually have to go to the restaurant or the bar to use it; also, it's wireless, so if there is bad weather then the connection will be week. I'd say that if you don't care for the comfort of checking your email on your laptop while you're having breakfast, then go across the street for other internet needs - it's much cheaper. (yes, you have to pay 750 baht for 10 hours, or other plans) Overall, this was an amazing place and I definitely recommend it.
