This is by far the best ibis hotel I’ve ever stayed and for the price it charges, it’s absolutely amazing. Ofcourse I do not escape a five star service but the hotel facilities are awesome here.

This is by far the best ibis hotel I’ve ever stayed and for the price it charges, it’s absolutely amazing. Ofcourse I do not escape a five star service but the hotel facilities are awesome here. I stayed with my family and everything was great. Its got a lovely pool area for a swim and is very secluded from the noisy Patong area. Still it is close to the kata beach which is serene and beautiful and is close to great food stalls and shops around. The reception staff did help me book a lot of tours around and were helpful with suggestions too. I didn’t try the breakfast but the spa was amazing as well. The hotel rooms also has a balcony overlooking the pool. Would totally recommend to anyone staying at kata area. Read less

Pros Great location, to the left restaurants & shops, to the right plenty of bars Friendly & helpful staff. Room can be cleaned everyday if you wish with bottles of water each time. Comfy bed & pillows. Hot shower. Great wifi. Great air con. Large pool with plenty of sunbeds that aren't all taken by 8am. Not far from the beach where you can hire beds etc. Cons Hotel is popular with Russians and Eastern Europeans which wouldn't be so bad if they weren't so rude. Queue jumping at the Buffett, letting their children throw stones around the pool area. Read less

I stay too many hotel in Thailand​ but Ibis Kata is the worst​ reception and restaurant​ staff service that I found. I will tell to every​body that I know if they come to Phuket, they should't come to stay here because they will get a bad experience​ from here as same as me.

We visited Thailand for a 1 week getaway with my fiance as a second time in this beautiful country. We didn't have much time to organise the trip so was a sort of last minute trip, therefore hotel was chosen without much research. Location is really good, we loved Karon beach which is only 15 minutes walking distance from hotel. Plus restaurants are all on the doorstep. Hotel facilities are really nice, pool and lobby area is a great place to rest and chill out. Breakfast was good, I loved the local touch with pad thai and fried rice. Staff is the best, very friendly, specially Trew(not sure the spelling) at the restaurant. One morning during breakfast, she overheard that I was waiting for eggs tray to be refilled and she run to kitchen and brough us me and my fiance a plate with some fresh eggs, impressive and really appreciated customer service!!! As a negative point, rooms are very small and bathroom tiny. In overall our stay was lovely. Read less
