We stayed as a couple for a week. The room we got had a mesmerizing view of the mountains. The room was clean. The Breakfast buffet had delicious varities. Although the hotel had no room service, it is surrounded by many restaurants and street food vendors. The Kata Beach is very close, its a 2 minute walk through a shortcut to the beach.

Although the hotel had no room service, it is surrounded by many restaurants and street food vendors. The Kata Beach is very close, its a 2 minute walk through a shortcut to the beach. Also, the hotel provides free shuttle services to and from the beach at various hours. The famous Kata Night Market is just a 5-minute walk away from the hotel. Around the hotel there are many tour agents that give away great deals. Overall, The hotel and the area is great to travel for couples and families. Would love to visit again. Read less

This was my first experience of a big hotel ; i usually prefer boutique or smaller places. This runs like a factory ; very impersonal. Not judging on basis of this but imagine i had to go up and down 7 floors (via lift) 3 to 4 times because my key card wasn't letting me inside the room. I had the room in one extreme corner of the floor as we were… Read more
This was my first experience of a big hotel ; i usually prefer boutique or smaller places. This runs like a factory ; very impersonal. Not judging on basis of this but imagine i had to go up and down 7 floors (via lift) 3 to 4 times because my key card wasn't letting me inside the room. I had the room in one extreme corner of the floor as we were given a bigger room with kid. It was quite frustrating. The front desk people treated me like they were just not interested in helping me out ; they talked to each other in thai and then one of them asked me the question in english. This just left a very bad in my mouth. I am very respectful to people who help us out in any form and i expect that respect as well immaterial of any other factor. The only thing that i stuck me was their focus on re-usables - the water bottles were glass bottles which were replaced every day rather than single-use plastic bottles, the shampoo, bodywash, handwash etc were filled up in the fixtures just like homes so that there is little less plastic waste. My only grudge was the size of shower, my husband is 6ft tall and could barely fit in. The location is quite nice in terms of night life as we could go to the Kata night market on one side and some amazing eateries on the other side. The beach is a different story though ; if you don't know which route to take, you could be walking for miles. Read less

I have been a member of Accor plus for last 6 years and have stayed at several Accor hotels but I have had the worst experience at ibis Phuket Kata. I payed for 2 nights (13/04-15/04) but due to Songkaran festival there was lot of Jam in Phuket so had to leave early from hotel and reach airport. My only submission to the manager was that to mark my stay as I would be awarded extra points for the same, at the hotel she agreed but when I left she canceled my stay and didn’t award me any points. WiFi doesn’t work at all in rooms. Beautiful property. Unsympathetic staff. Next I went to ibis Siam, MERCURE Bangkok Makkasan, both had very helpful and generous staff. Read less

Four of us decided to try the Ibis hotel in Kata beach. It was a cheap option so we were not expecting great things. Well what a pleasant surprise. This hotel was so good we are definitely staying there again next year. The standard Ibis rooms are small but comfortable. The airconditioning worked really well. The small bathroom was functional and clean. The queen sized bed was extremely comfortable. We had a little balcony overlooking the pool area.The pool was lovely and looked after very well. We never had trouble getting a pool lounge.The pool was well situated in the middle of the complex with a nice little garden area. There was an open area with a bar and comfortable loungers. They made delicious mango smoothies and great coffee. Breakfast was adequate especially if you have an accor card and take advantage of the 1/2 price food. For two of us our breakfast cost 8 dollars aud.The position of the hotel is on the Main Street and you can take a short cut to the beach. It was only really a quick 10 minute walk. A huge thing to us was that this hotel was not on a steep hill but on flat ground. That meant we could easily walk everywhere.Then to finish our stay off nicely we had the loveliest staff, Everyone working at this hotel went out of their way to be nice to us.Thank you for a great stay. See you next year Read less
