Rated 5 out of 5 by Unya Paradise Available on Earth
No doubts, this resort is the best known for its nice long beach with a lot of funs should you like swimming in the ocean or in the massive pool. Staff are all attentive and extend you with warm hospitality. The newly refurbished rooms have very stable water temperature and the water pressure of the rain shower really elevate your bathroom experience. Always love it, always come back, always recommend to friends and family.

Le Meridien is located in a quite spot between Karon and Patong beaches and is away from the hustle and bustle of Phuket.
Both beaches are a 5 to 8 minute tuk tuk or taxi ride away and due to its hilly location, walking is not an option.
The resort itself is amazing. The are quite a few swimming pools, also for kids but I feel the landscaping around the pools can be much better with some facilities like water slide and overhead covering to shield from the sun.
The kids club is a very welcomed option. Parents can leave their kids with babysitters over there and with plenty of activities within the club, kids are sure to be kept entertained.
The resort also boasts tennis and squash courts as well as rock climbing and a giant chessboard.
There is also a fixed schedule of activities to suit all tastes and ages.
As expected though, water sports on its private beach are more expensive than what you find at Patong Beach.
Breakfast is ample but you don't find smoked salmon if thats what you also fancy.
We had a pool facing room on the ground floor and made the mistake of leaving the balcony window open and that let in a few mosquitoes and even a lizard so you might want to exercise some caution on that.
I feel the resort should have a proper launderette. I am sure people hardly use the laundry services at the hotel and because of its location, it is not really practical to take your basket of clothes to the dry cleaners so management should explore this option. In any case, we could see people hanging out several clothes on their balconies and this doesnt look good. A launderette would certainly solve this problem and also provide a convenience to many people !
Other than that the resort is a must visit if you want peace and tranquility !

Rated 3 out of 5 by TF0105 An average hotel
A pretty average hotel. Expected more. SPG recognition is low - did not get any upgrades. Hotel is a bit old. Good location though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JimBarb This hotel is like a resort!
This hotel is amazing! It has gorgeous swimming pools, lovely flotation devices, great poolside service, private ocean beach, fabulous waves, a baby elephant that walks the beach daily, super-delicious restaurants. I would come back to Thailand just to stay at this hotel for two or three weeks!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jep24 Great Beach Hotel near Patong
This hotel has a secluded beach front location, yet it also provides easy and quick access via taxi or tuk tuk to the shopping, restaurants and nightlife of the Patong entertainment area. Almost every room has an ocean view and a balcony to enjoy it from. I was disappointed in not getting a suite upgrade for this stay, but the room I received was very nice. As a platinum member the breakfast benefit included access to a private restaurant with champagne and cooked to order dishes in addition to a buffet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Athanase The Beach is the best !
We stayed 6 nights in that hotel with 2 children.
The facilities are good with a kid club, a play area, the great swimming pool and easy access to the beach.
The staff though some of them hardly spoke english and made several mistakes in our food orders. And some were not very friendly by replying in Thai.
