Review Summary

Photos and Review by

Pros

  • Friendly, family-run budget hotel
  • 45-minute drive from Phuket airport
  • Clean and comfortable rooms with balconies
  • Large cupboards and fridges for longer term guests
  • Small rear garden with swimming pool
  • Ground floor restaurant serves Thai and international food
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout

Cons

  • Set on a busy street
  • Long walk to the beach
  • No gym or spa

Bottom Line

The 20-room Palmview Resort is more of small and friendly budget hotel than a resort, set away from Patong's beach and town center. The location on a busy street over a mile from the beach is not ideal, but rooms are spacious and clean, with good amenities for longer-stay guests. Cheap rates reflect the setting and general caliber of hotel, though you might get slighter better value for your money at the nearby Valero Guest House.

Scene

Small, family-run budget hotel with a friendly vibe

Wedged between other businesses on a boisterous and busy street, the Palmview Resort is clearly one of the budget-end options in the area, though it's not without its charms. It's housed in a modern, four-floor building with Thai-style touches,clad largely in mock-brickwork, while interiors feature terra cotta tiled floors strewn with wicker furnishings, and walls decorated with numerous pieces of Thai art. Beyond the lobby, a small wooden bridge connects to a relatively secluded pool garden dotted with palms and overlooked by undulating balustraded walkways. A small family-run property, Palmview provides friendly and familiar ambience to longer-term guests or those on a budget who are happy to overlook the slightly noisy location for simple and clean accommodations.

Location

Five-minute drive from Patong center in southwest Phuket

The hotel is located on a busy hill-road that runs parallel to the main thoroughfare of Patong resort -- a popular tourist spot in southwest Phuket. The street is lined with cheap bars, fry restaurants, and phone kiosks. Many of those working in the city live in this area as it's about a five-minute drive from the town center. It's at least a 20-minute walk to the beach, so a taxi is recommended, while the island's capital -- Phuket City -- is about 25 minutes away by car. Phuket airport is a 45 minutes' drive to the north and flights from Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport take around an hour and 15 minutes.

Rooms

Clean, balconied rooms include large cupboards and minibars

The Palmview Resort has just 20 rooms, all of which are clean and simply decorated with white walls, tiled flooring, and traditional wooden furnishings and wall art. Air-conditioned rooms are spacious and extend to basic but well-maintained bathrooms, while all rooms have sliding doors opening to furnished balconies. Wi-Fi is free of charge but old flat-panel TVs have limited channels. Catering to longer-term guests, cupboards are large and minibars are often full-size fridges, but many rooms overlook the noisy street and a tangle of electric and phone cables.

Features

Relatively secluded garden with palms and small pool; little else

To the rear of the property is a small garden with an equally small swimming pool surrounded by a few sun loungers. A ground floor restaurant looks directly onto the busy road where diners can enjoy good, simple food and smoothies while watching the flow of Patong street life -- dishes and drinks can also be served in-room or poolside. The hotel also offers free Wi-Fi throughout, as well as motorbikes for hire and airport transfer arrangements.
