Rico's Bungalows
Ranked #42 of 56 Hotels in Kata Beach
Reviewed 22 October 2016

2 families travelling together, we stayed here for 6 nights.
We had room 9 which has a king bed and a queen bed so we fitted in very comfortably.
Our friends had 2 side by side rooms.

Really tidy place,gardens well looked after, very clean pool.
Rooms cleaned daily including windows, bathrooms aren't fabulous but at the very good rates no complaints here.

Locations is very close to the access to the beach and among the resturants.
Kata beach access is to limited to a few entry point as the Club Med has a massive property dominating a fair stretch of beach.

We much prefer NOrthern Thailand so unlikely to go back to Phuket but if your going this is a great budget option I would happily recommend

Room Tip: Room 9 if you want 2 big beds

We only had a quick couple of days here but really enjoyed it. It's suited us fine to have cheap, simple accommodation with a pool right outside the door. The staff are lovely & the beds are comfy. It's in a great position along the Kata strip with restaurants, street food & everything else just a few minutes away. And when your at the Bungalows there's no outside noise. We'll be back.

Stayed here for nearly a week...great place and great staff....rooms are along 3 sides of a rectangle, with about half having direct pool frontage...all have patios...
Bathrooms are simply but clean, and the rooms are quite good. Daily cleaning service, and 2 free bottles of water each time.
Some good restaurants very close by, and only a 5 min walk to the beach.
I'd definitely stay here again without a 2nd thought.

Room Tip: Low, middle and highest # rooms are towards each end of the complex...others front the pool...

We booked 2 bungalows ar 750 bath per night per bungalow (low season).
There is a long corridor from the street to access the resort. It consists in about 15 bungalows around and facing the swimming-pool.

The standard bungalow are big enough : big comfortable bed, a big closet with a safe, a tv and dvd player (there are plenty of dvd at the reception).
The bathroom looks a bit "old" but ok.
They provide 2 complimentary bottles of drinking water everyday. There is a small fridge.

There is a small terrace with 2 chairs and a bench in front of each bungalow.

They provide beach towel for the swimming pool. The resort is clean.

No breakfast included, you can go to Rico's restaurant next door. We haven't tried.

Wifi is fine.
Location is really good to access Kata beach : 8 min walk max.

Payment is only by cash. There is a UOB bank ATM just outside the resort.
