  Manathai Pool to Die For
by pperera
 
 

Our stay was with three children (Aged 8,4,1) in the Manathai Hotel. The service was impeccable, service very friendly towards the children and the general feel of the hotel was welcoming.
This hotel would suit a couple, but a number of families seemed to have checked through whilst we were there, the facilities are more suited to people without kids.

Unique Qualities: We stayed for 9 nights and were made very welcome, and it was a real struggle leaving the beautiful room and for the elder boys - the swimming pool. The beach was not difficult to get to, although a 100m walk away, didn't allow for swimming as the rip tide in late July and early August is too strong.
We stayed in the Duplex Suite, the rooms were very nicely laid out, clean, and very well provisioned. This suite included a downstairs entrance into a good sized Lounge, with access to a balcony which looked onto the side of the Twin Palms hotel (not so pretty) but with a view to the beach if you leaned out from the balcony, and a nice view of the beautiful swimming pool.
This hotel would suit a couple, but a number of families seemed to have checked through whilst we were there, the facilities are more suited to people without kids. We used a very nice baby sitter, provided by the hotel. In terms of location it was well positioned to the beach, however was a 45 minute journey to other attractions on the island. We always used the very reliable bus service which left from just outside the Antique shop every 15mins to Phuket town.
