Stayed here during a recent SCUBA trip. This quaint little place is not far off the main drag in Chalong and all the action. The bungalos are clean and gave hot water shower, small icebox, a/c, cieling fan, small patio and a TV. The bed is a pad on a box frame. It may be a little hard for some but it was great on my back. They have a nice pool which was nice after a day of diving or just to cool down. The staff is super friendly and greets you with a smile as you come and go. The have a two for one happy hour from 5-6 which serves up some good mojitos and other beverages. I will stay here on my next trip as I had a relaxing time and great sleep.

You can find much nicer places to stay, however if you are planning to go diving with See Bees, it is a very convenient location. Walking distance to the See Bees office and then they transport you to the pier with the boat, etc. However if you want a resort experience, Palm Garden is not it. Quite far and inconvenient to the beach, find a place with a beach attached, there are plenty of those in the area and you can ride a taxi anywhere you need to go.

My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights during low season in Phuket.
The price was reasonable for the facilities offered, around £24 per night including breakfast.

-location, very tranquil and relaxing with a lovely atmosphere
-offers moped hire for 250BHT, taxis here are very expensive so this was a fun cheaper option for us
-food, the quality of dinner and breakfast was superb
-the staff are very friendly and efficient, especially with organising our taxi and boat to Phi Phi
-cleanliness, towels changed daily, outside paths and pool swept constantly during the daytime
-the pool, great size, has a mini water feature and jacuzzi seat
-the gardens, really well kept and a haven for birds and insects
-constant and reliable wifi all over the site
-rooms are mellow with a hint of traditional Thai yet some modern fearures

-location, way of the beaten track. Taxi drivers from the airport have a hard time finding this place and there's not a lot of amenities in this particular area of Chalong unless your interested in diving
-the staff leave shortly after 6pm so there is no food or drink served after that, it's just what is in your mini bar (which is expensive!)
-the electricity went out several times during the thunderstorms and there was some sort of animal wrecking havoc on our roof during the night which made it difficult to sleep

N.B. The pool doubles as a diving pool school although the German guy was lovely and the divers never got in our way. There are dozens of shops for diving gear around the corner.

All in all a very good, quiet place to stay!

We spend two weeks before and after our liveaboard in this lovely hotel. The location of it is just few minutes from the main street to the pier where you can find restaurants, cafes and bars.
The room was small but it was ok. They provide free wi-fi and we didn't have any major problems with the signal in the room.
The pool was perfect and it's realy nice that they don't close it in the night like big hotels. It was very pleasent to go swiming when ever you wanted to go.
Breakfast was tasty and we allways found something to eat. We also ate few lunches/dinners and it was delicious. If you want they can bring you your meal to your patio.
The staff was very kind and they would do anything for you.

This hotel is off just off the beaten track away from everything which was great.

It is a short 10minute walk to the local bars and restaurants.

The rooms are all around a pool. Great chill time around the pool!

My room was simple and clean. It was great for a couple nights.

The staff were amazing and helpful too.

Overall a very pleasant stay. Thank you.
