The hotel was very nice and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. Very close to the beach. Other reviews mentioned a scary bridge to cross to the beach but while we were there they installed a new one! The road can be a little scary to cross too but they always had someone there to help you.

Stayed here for 4 days and 3 nights. The staff were super accommodating and helpful! They helped arranged for our tours and even made suggestions to help us maximize our trip. They also assisted us with our airport pick up to our hotel and accommodated our questions even though it was already super late.
We picked the Hilton because although there were probably 20 other places to stay that looked adequate and were possibly a little cheaper we hadn't been to Thailand or east before and thought Hilton would be a safe choice and to be fair the photos looked nice. The hotel did not disappoint, it was a huge complex with beautiful gardens well looked after and easy access to the beach. There were three pools one with a waterfall and slide and there was always plenty of sun beds available. Our room was on the 12th floor and looked at the Sea with a balcony which was beautiful at sunset. The staff were friendly, polite and helpful and we didn't have any issues with service. The food was fine plenty of choice but quite expensive compared to local restaurants. Our only criticism is that it did feel a little more like a business hotel because there were a few conferences on when we were there and that some of the outside areas by the communal lifts could do with an update.
The Mandarava Resort and Spa was perfect! Everyone there was super friendly, the pools were amazing, the breakfast buffet options were endless and the surrounding area was beautiful! I am soo pleased to have picked this resort if your at all worried about the amount of stairs there is I overheard some other guests ask the bell men for a ride to their room and they were more than happy to do so! The daily beach shuttle was perfect easy to arrange and there was also pick up times from the beach if need be, walking to Karon is also an option as it is not that far. If you wanted to explore different areas of Phuket the resort has a list of destinations and prices at the front desk just let one of the receptionists know and they can book it for you then and there! We did this a lot and explored all over we got back to the hotel by tuk tuks and just bartered the price to what we paid with the resort which they all agreed on in the end :) overall I would definitely recommend this place to everyone! I am beyond pleased with how my stay was! Thank you soo much Mandarava
Its new! Super clean! Really really nice staff. But room could use some personal touch it looks very sterile. Very plain. And the water temp will change suddenly making for an interesting shower experiance. But sleepy quiet area close to cheap eats and low cost shopping. New hotel being constructed next door so early morning noise! But nothing hotel could do about that. Very clean though and fair price
Nice hotel with friendly staff but a little run down. Restaraunt was excellent but cooking facilities inadequate for anything other than a toasted sandwich or quick microwave meal. Kids club was disappointing, was more of a baby sitting service as opposed to a program with structured activities. Overall however good value.
Only 3 km south of Patong, this beach is famed for its five-kilometre long white beach sand that squeaks under your feet. Mostly single row sunbeds decked along the stretch offer unsurpassed and unblocked views. Turtles are periodic nocturnal visitors to the beach. Recreational activities at this beach include paragliding, windsurfing, snorkeling, and volleyball. Thai Massage and reflexology are also offered on the beach.
