Sofitel Phokeethra Krabi Golf & Spa Resort is a great resort, especially the speed boat service to Hong Island. Great fresh fruit juice in breakfast. Great swimming pool. Relax in this resort is a great idea.

I will start off by saying, yes this hotel is beautiful, yes the pool is amazing. We cannot fault the hotel in this regard. Our room was OK, from the pictures on the website we expected something a little nicer. It was quite small and the bathroom seemed a little tired.

We found the staff good, however checking out proved difficult and the girl assisting us had little to no understanding of what we were asking her to do. A gentleman behind the reception was very helpful and assisted her through it (perhaps she was in training). It is hard because obviously there english is much better than our Thai however we found compared with other 5 star hotels we had stayed in within Thailand it was much harder to communicate.

The reason I say this hotel was not for us, was simply the location. We knew that it was not in the middle of town (which we usually prefer) however people have written similar reviews regarding Karon in Phuket, so we expected something similar. We felt quite iscolated, there is a nice selection of small local restaurants and the prices/food are great. However we found ourselves at a loose end by about 9:30pm every night.

The shuttle to Ao Nang was good, but it was difficult as you have to nominate a time you wish to return, we found this a bit restricting as we generally just see where the night takes us and do not like being time restricted. Never being to Krabi before if we were to return we would definately stay close to Ao Nang.

We loved the trip to Hong Island and would reccommend this to anyone staying at the hotel, the island does get very busy during the day, so I would reccommend snorkling early. We hired a canoe in the afternoon and made our way around the whole island which was fantastic. The hotel does offer lunch to be provided however, there is a little restaurant on the island and a kiosk which sells drinks/snacks etc. We had a huge breakfast before we went and found we didn't really need a big lunch anyway.

Also, I have noticed many people complain regarding the expensive internet service in the room. There is a business centre in the hotel lobby with 3 computers offering free internet and printing. This suited our needs while on holidays perfectly.

All in all, the hotel was nice, but as I said not for us. If you enjoy staying mainly at the hotel and not venturing far during the day. Enjoy hotel restaurants and early nights then this hotel would suit you perfectly.

This is a really well run hotel, great staff, organised activities and very well maintained. The pool is fabulous, there's a par 3 nine hole course in the grounds, a beach across the road and the trip they run to Hong island is a nice touch. They also run a daily list of activities you can take part in such as Thai cookery school, Thai language lessons, Fitball, Windsurfing lessons etc. if your looking for something to break up the day relaxing by the pool. There's free internet access in the Business Center which has 3 computers which is nice when most hotels seem to charge for it.

My only two faults with the hotel would be it's slightly isolated location next to a beach that isn't great and there's no restaurants etc. right outside the front gate so you need to organise your own transport to nearby areas or get the hotel shuttle to Ao Nang at night. Also in a Las Vegas casino style way you'll find you'll be easily parted from your money, the breakfast is extremely expensive in Thai terms, I couldn't justify it so only had it once. The onsite restaurants are also quite expensive but if you want to escape to Ao Nang instead for your evening meal you have to pay the shuttle "tax" of 200 Baht per person return which would get you a meal in most Thai restaurants. I know it's quite a trek to Ao Nang but maybe the hotel could subsidise it due to it's location and lack of other options or offer a free shuttle to the area outside the Sheraton which has some restaurants. The Mangosteen in Phuket for example done a free shuttle to Nai Harn beach during the day and Rawai for night time dinner due to it's isolated location.

Overal though, I couldn't see how anyone could be disappointed with the hotel itself and it's nightly room rates are great value for money especially if you can get a breakfast included rate.
