“The Bell Pool Villa”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

I would personally rate the Bell as being a 4 star hotel trying to be a 5 star. The rooms are very spacious and decorated fabulously. The pool is fantastic as well as the food from the restaurant.

We did have a few issues whilst we was there, one being that the Internet in our room wasn't working and the second the housekeeping staff would not look the front door after they had finished. I raised these points a few times and sadly the staff didn't ahead to my requests until I had to escalate my concerns to the manager who resolved the Internet issue within the hour. I was upset at the fact the staff had lied to me saying they were having technical problems rather then inform me our bungalow had limited access due to the wireless range.
To the credit of the manager they offered us free dinner and drop off and pick up for free to kamala beach area.

If you are going to travel around, the cost for using the car to and back to kamala beach alone is 150 each way. Kinda expensive if you ask me. they do offer a shuttle service, but this is at set times..

Overall nice place but if the staff could put that little more effort in, they could have this as a top class resort.

What a great way to spend Easter !! Private pool area ! Great service and the ability to organise your own chef to actually cook with was ideal. Living and sleeping areas separate, with the ability to be able to just jump in for a swim was fantastic. Easy walk to the local beach, with shuttle service available if needed. Breakfast selection was fantastic as was the service.
Will defintely be back to experience the privacy, the service and the atmospher again..

Room Tip: all the rooms were the same.. it just depends on the number of people you want to bring along.. shar...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

I spent 4 days in this resort in Oct 2011, and the villa was absolutely fabulous. The pool was big, good for family of 4. You can have baby cot added free of charge. Each villa has a fully equipped pantry with coffee machine, microwave, fridge, other utensils and cutlery/glassware. You can also borrow DVDs from the front desk for kids (DVD in the living room). There is no communal pool as the in-villa pool is really big enough for a family. Dining choice is limited in the Bell so we mostly dined out except one night we had a in-villa BBQ, which was great!! Do try!! The only thing is comuting as taxi is difficult to get in Phuket, so it takes around THB 500 everytime we need to go out. They do have free shuttles to the beach and patong.

Room Tip: All villas are surrounded by plantation with full privacy.

Super villa and pool- total privacy.
Food ok and not too expensive.
Nice staff, but not five star, a bit uproffsional- no matter what you called for icecream, pinapple shake massage- they could never order or answer rigt away but would have to call bask.
Restaurant closed at night because of renovation- we stayed with ou 4 year old and would have like food from the restaurant at night- we were not informed before hand. We got take away from outside the hotel wich was ok.
Massage overpriced and not very good quialyty- in the brouchure it say you get flowerfoot bath and refreshment- but we just had the massage on the floor on sunbed madress and we had to clean up ourselves afterwards- not very luxueryous...
But all in all beatutyful villa and fantastic pool- wich compensate for the small faults..

Stayed with this resort from 21st to 23rd March 2012. We were a big group (of 13 people) and had rented the 4 bedroom villa. It came with a private pool which was excellent. The kids had a wild time in the pool. The rooms themselves were very comfortable. If you are looking for privacy and quality time with your family/friends, this is it. Its very near to Kamala Beach and just a 5 min drive from Fantasea. The staff are very friendly and cooperative. The breakfast is quite a lot (although it is included) so you have to order accordingly so that you dont waste it. The quality of food is very good. They have vans if you want to go to Patong Street or anywhere else - these are chargeable. It is slightly out of the way and around 45 mins from Phuket Airport but the drive is worth it. Although i think if it was nearer to the main road, it would have been a much better deal. Overall, it was a good experience and i recommend it to others too.
