Booked this hotel directly via the web, they offer 40% off the regular rate on their own website which I think is about the right rate for this hotel.
Situated right on the beach, the outlook from the restaurant is fantastic. Breakfast is really good, cooked to order ever day & served right on the water.
The hotels offers a one-way transfer from the airport which is great because transport on Phuket is always a challenge but in Bangtao you really have no taxis at all - just a few guys that run the local transport & they have you over a barrel every time you want to go anywhere. There is just enough around the hotel to get by - minimarts, pharmacy, restaurants etc. but if you are here for (say) more than 4-5 days you better enjoy just lazing around reading a good book.
The hotel is old, rooms are dated but very clean. The cheapest room at the hotel (at around $30USD) is best avoided in my opinion - they are smallish and have no window for natural light. I went for the next grade up and thought my room was great for around $65USD it was very, very big & had a window overlooking the sea.
The pool is tiny, not enticing at all but I found this got me out onto the beach & walking up along the shore line was just so much fun with many local Thai traders selling drinks at regular intervals, small market stalls and even a few outstanding restaurants right on the sand.
Bangtao is nowhere near as comercialised as Patong, so if you are looking for an island getaway without the hassle and negatives of Patong, this is certainly worth considering.
