Nice Boutique Hotel from the buzz of Phuket. It takes 10 minutes of uphill walk to reach the Hotel. Pool is nice but had a lot of mosquitoes in the evening. Perhaps due to mountain area around.

Thanks for visiting, you are Absolutely Correct.

Although, I have gone out of my way to preserve the positive aspects of the Thai experience such as hospitality, we have also deleted the aspects which many world travelers don't like such as touts etc.. At Pacific Club you'll find many features in design, amenities, and service which are normally associated with higher priced International Standard properties rather than local properties. Yet we deliver them at a reasonable (let's say "Thai") price. That's probably why we were named #1 best bargain resort in Phuket by the Traveler's Choice awards ( #21 in all of Asia).

We don't mean to knock what folks generally might consider the "Phuket Experience" but let's face it, your holiday time is valuable and there are some aspects of hospitality which are considered to be "international standard" and some local establishments miss the target on them. Some of the differences we offer:

* International menu with reasonable prices
* English language cable TV channels such as HBx,
FOx, CNx, etc.. Local places have a crappy collage
of Free to Air stuff.
* Free Wifi throughout the resort that works
* Full security without being in your face
* Top quality bedding and linens
* International standard mattress which aren't hard
* Complimentary Herbal Steam Sauna
* Private, exclusive, no hassle attitude
* No questions asked satisfaction guarantee

On the mosquitoes, it's the other way around. Being slightly elevated, Pacific Club has far less mosquitoes than properties located on the lower flat ground where most hotels are located. Mosquitoes are attracted to standing water and there is no standing water within 300 meters of Pacific Club. Right now is the wet season so some of them make it up to Pacific Club. Also, within our grounds we have lot's of water features, but none are standing water, all have waterfalls, and all are chlorinated. We don't even allow potted plants with wet soil or water on the premises. I guarantee you, for every mosquito you see at Pacific Club, you'll see 5 at most resorts. Please don't take my word on mosquito habitat and breeding necessities, Google it to reach your own conclusion !!! :-)

Happy Traveling,

Uncle Eric

Stayed for 5 nights in the 2 bedroom suite and was glad we made the right choice. Booking direct with the hotel was a right first step as they offered breakfast and the price was cheaper (with longer stay rates). wifi all around the hotel and in our rooms was really good.. the amenities were clean and pool towels were readily available at the top floor.
We had no issue with the location.. it was easy to find (with the directions available thru' the website) and space to park our rented car.
Uncle Eric (the owner) even took note our stay & our son and made sure we were well... and I guess the place is so well maintain as Uncle Eric lives on-site..
The whole apartment was cozy and perfect for our 3 adults and a 5-year old.. with plenty of space for us to relax and unwind... did I mention the rooftop pool that is totally awesome :)
Overall, this is the best hotel/resort we stayed in Phuket.. with 2 other in the list (one being a 5*) on previous trips.. wished we found this place earlier.. but nevertheless glad we found this wonderful 'oasis' we can call "home"... it really comes close... in terms of comfort and warm reception we recieve.
We will definately be back at Pacific Club for our next trip...

Stayed here for 6 nights and I am happy that we decided to stay here. We did the booking from the hotel website and got the room + breakfast offer.We stayed in room 302.I have a lot of good things to say and a few not so good things. Will start with the latter first

1. We were travelling with a 7mth baby and our flight was supposed to land at 11:20 PM. So, we booked the airport to hotel shuttle from the hotel website. I also sent a mail to hotel regarding this and got quick reply confirming our shuttle reservation. On the journey date, I sent a reminder as well. However, when we landed at phuket, there was no one to receive us. We tried to call the hotel but no one picked up. We waited for half an hour and finally decided to take a taxi after mid night and reached the hotel. We were later told that the shuttle was sent from the hotel and the driver could not find us. The hotel did not charge us for the shuttle but it was a real pain waiting out side the airport at mid night with the baby crying.

2. The resort is a good 10-15 mins walk from the main road. This was not a problem for us since we had rented a car. if you don’t hire a bike/car, then going to the beach or nearest 7/11 can be a pain in the neck especially in the hot and humid weather.

3. As others have said, getting hot water from the shower requires special training. I could not master the art during my stay 

Moving on to the goodies .... 
1. The atmosphere at the resort is very peaceful and calm. Our room had a sea view as well and it was a treat to have our evening tea at the balcony.
2. Excellent breakfast! There were so many choices available. There was a thai menu as well and it changed every day.
3. We requested for a baby cot and it was immediately sent to our room. ( complimentary)
4. On day 1, we could not go to the market immediately to get some fruits for the baby. So, we requested for some fruits and the staff quickly sent some to our room. I know these are minor things, but these small things show how willing the staff is to serve their guests.
5. At our request , an electric iron and ironing table was also sent to our room.
6. The roof top pool is excellent. It is pretty well maintained and clean
7. The rooms are spacious, airy and clean. There was a microwave available which was a big plus in our books since we were travelling with an infant.
8. The food at the hotel restaurant is very tasty and reasonably priced. Room service is also good.

Overall we had a pleasant stay at Pacific Club Resort and would recommend it to others as well. Even more so to those travelling with their little ones 

Room Tip: Some rooms on 3rd and 4th floors have excellent sea view
