    Russ, I stay at the Holiday Inn resort, Patong. They have a great pool. Beach across the street, 50 meters. Shops many at Jungceylon centre 10 minute walk. The place is very family friendly, kids everywhere!. The permanent management of the resort is European so its very well run. Not to far from the fun, but not to close also. I have stayed here every year for the past 5 years on a 10-14 days holiday. The resort has baby sitters listed from memory in there hotel directory in the room. The place has great customer reviews, its in the top 1 or 2 hotels of Phuket usually. I get my rates and book here http://www.phukethotels247.com/ almost 7 years ago

    Holiday inn is a great place i agree, i do not think you will get a better resort in Patong. In the high season it books out early. The Euro Manager is really good, he helped us out last year when one of my kids cut his foot on some glass at the beach.Try ihotelthai . com for a booking here or some where else in Phuket. over 6 years ago

    Personally, I'll avoid living at patong beach. It's way too crowded and commercialised. I've stayed in serenity resort last month at rawai beach, it's nice and peaceful. Getting around from the resort is best when you rent a car. It's the best way to get around the island. over 6 years ago

    I'm not sure you still need it, but here goes: Center of Patong is noisy and crowded, but you can try the hotel below. I stayed there and it was a 15-20mn walk to Patong Center, but they have free tuk tuks at night to go there and you can catch cheap transportation during the day as well... The beach right in front of the hotel is great, but not so crowded.

    Check out this link, www.sawadee.com, which basically covers all hotels in Phuket, Pattaya, Bangkok..and I use it since year 2000, very reliable!! For location in Phuket, if you prefer quiet night, I believe Karon or Kata is better, but you may have to take a taxi-cab or tuk-tuk to Patong. But, for convenience, definitely Patong is better!! over 6 years ago
