It has become really run down and the enclosures are in bad shape. There's also a lot of empty enclosures now so not a lot to see here. The animals don't look happy. I should have spent my money elsewhere.

Lousy, dirty, low maintenance is what I saw, many cages empty and 80% of animals here are birds. Waste of time and in my opinion it is a waste of reputation to Phuket city as well.

I visited this zoo on Saturday and was not impressed. The grounds seemed poorly kept, the animals malnourished, there were no signs or any information about what the animals were. There was no loo paper, and the toilets were utterly disgusting. I expect more for...More

One the filthiest places I have visited! In need for a major revamp! Animal enclosures are dirty and you can just tell those animals are not happy! We left after 20mins!

We decided to go to this Zoo on the suggestion of our driver after our first destination. We were mostly impressed. Staff were pretty good, crocodile show was cool but our only let downs were the elephants chained by the ankle. And the mummy monkey...More

How on Earth it is OK to be so cruel to animals! Please send them all to sanctuaries! I cannot believe and cannot understand how you all sleep at night! Disgraceful!!

When are the animals going to be properly taken care of?! Elephants chained up is not proper treatment for them or any animal for that matter!! I will never visit your horrid place! These poor animals deserve to live in freedom!

Hi understand that the golf course is under maintaince. So is the golf course closed now? We plan to stay from 25 to 31 Jan 2015 and would like to play golf. Also want to ask are the pool villas close to the beach? How long does it take by walking. We have a one year old baby with us and would like to ask for crib inside the room? Is it possible? Free of charge?
