The danger here is that I start to review Phuket, if you're reading this, I'm going to assume you have already worked out that Phuket is a fantastic place to visit offering a bit of everything, so I will try to focus on the apartment.

Jaap made everything really easy for us down to detailed directions to the apartment complex, if only we'd remembered to bring them with us! Tip one - keep the directions and a map handy at all times, taxi drivers will get lost, thank god for pre agreed prices... If we had hired a car at the airport the directions we'd been sent would have been excellent, unfortunately we decided we'd use taxis to get around, and some of them couldn't find the site even with a map! hence the marking down on the directions.

On arrival the management office made checking in very easy, they (like most Thai's) were very welcoming and friendly. The apartment is on the second floor (third if you're using US reckoning) down one and up six flights of stairs - there is no lift - so pack light!

The apartment is well presented, with pretty much everything you need. The kitchen (which we only used for breakfast) could probably be used for a full evening meal but why waste the plethora of local restaurants, cafes and eateries? The living area is simply a sofa a coffee table and a TV with DVD player, the TV receives Setanta which plays European Rugby - so I don't know/care what other channels were available.

The bedroom has a king size double, we found the mattress a bit hard, but that is down to personal taste and to be honest we slept well every night. there is plenty of storage and wardrobe space and a safe for your passport and spare money.

The bathroom is spacious and has a bath and a shower although it takes some skill to keep the shower water in the bath and not spread across the floor.

There is a large balcony, where we spent most of the time we were in the apartment, it over looks the lake and swimming pool, and is a fantastic place to spend an evening watching the lightning.

The pool is fantastic, very well maintained, the only drawback is the lack of shade, so remember to reapply your sun cream regularly.

Layan beach is a gentle 10 minute stroll, and is wonderfully under used. It was practically empty every time we visited, there is a bar and a restaurant there as well as a tourism booking place, where we hired a scooter to get around, which was safer than expected as the roads are not terribly busy.

We only bought beer and breakfast stuff from the shops and there is a reasonable choice within 20 minutes ride including Tesco Lotus, 7-11 and the Big 1. We found these as we rode around and a map of where to find them would have been useful.

Overall we loved this apartment, I have already asked for availability for next year, it is an ideal location if you like what Phuket has to offer, but don't want the extremes of Patong or Phuket Town forced on you all the time.

Next year I'll arrange a taxi to pick you up from the airport for maximum convenience, so the taxi driver will be able to find the resort even when you didn't bring the directions! I am looking forward to welcome you back next year, either in this property or in the 3 bedroom penthouse when you will be coming with friends & family.
