pool at swiss palm patong

Has anyone stayed at the swiss palm resort in unit 4 and if so what standard is it? we have stayed in unit 7 for the last couple of years but have been told is no longer in the letting pool. Also the pool filtering system had broken down last yearleaving us with a week of being unable to swim in it...does anyone know if it has been fixed?

The pool fitlering system not working has happened the last two years we have been at the Swiss Palm....and on both occasions the management did little to have it fixed. I am guessing it is becuase it is low season and the unit owners don't want to spend money on getting it fixed...but they are still happy to take our money.

Last year both my daughter and mother ended up with ear infections...a harrible end to our vacation. Let's hope it is fixed this year.

We were at Swiss Palm for 5 mths of low season last year and the pool was fine, (must have happened when we were away for a week). Maybe the company that looks after the pool had to wait for a part, nothing to do with the owners of the apartments. It was fine when we left at the end of October, amybe email the hotel and ask them.

Hi Cathy, thanks for your input. We did notice you weren't there for some of the time we were there...hope you were off having a great time somewhere else.

We did email last year prior to arriving, and got the standard answer of....."all is fixed". Whilst we were on the ground last year we spoke to management on three different occasions within the week the pool was unswimmable, but got a nod and a smile..lol!

Hopefully all will be good this time around as we do love the place.

Have you seen inside Unit 4?

Cheers.

Hi Cathy, Yes it is a 2 bedroom near the pool on the opposite side to the office. We know from experience a couple of the units in the complex need a bit of tarting up and didn't want to hit the ground having to change units. I remember 2 years ago one the first five units was being renovated, but couldn't remember which one. cheers
