I will withhold my final review until the double billing for the one room I occupied (#201, 4 nights, checked in May 4 and out May 8) you collected from the online booking service and from myself directly. Simply put, you received funds twice from the same guest for the same exact same dates. for only one room. I will wait a few days for you to adjust this double billing and issue a credit to my credit card, or I will be forced to file a "dispute" for services NOT received with the credit card company.

Stayed: May 2017

It is always a feeling of uncertainty about booking an unfamiliar hotel. There are so many questions inside your head such as “is the hotel going to be ok to stay?”, “Never stay here before, is it going to accommodate my mother-in-law mobility issues with certain bathroom styles of toilet and steps?”, “Is the room clean?” and many more questions?????? But we decided to give the Pago Design a go. It was a pleasant surprise to us as the hotel is just like home away from home. The location is great for us as it is so close to my brother’s and my sister’s house & not far from Phuket Town .

Our room is located on the second floor. It was a family suit with private pool access from our room’s balcony. The room contained a big living area; kitchen and lounge room, one bed room with great size bath room and huge balcony. The room is great to host visitors. Room service meals are great at reasonable cost.

“I was in heaven, this place had all my favourite local style breakfast dishes that brought back my childhood memories” – I said to my mother-in-law when we turn up at the buffet breakfast. Everyday breakfast is a great selection of traditional Phuket breakfast; savoury and sweet. There is a small corner to those who would prefer cereals, eggs, bacon or toasts and also number of tradition Thai dishes which varied each day.

Staff from Front Desk to Housekeepers and Restaurant staff at the hotel are very kind, pleasant, friendly and accommodating.

My mother-in-law had also experience a pool access room where she can relax by the pool.

My sister had also booked a pool access room for her parent-in-law who came from France. They are also impressed by the hotel especially their staff. Both of them are not able to speak English. They thought they will have some difficulty in communication but there are two staff members who could speak French.

I would recommend family and friends to stay here.

Room Tip: Recommend the Room 201, a family suit

Stopped here for a night as we was heading back to the airport to catch our flight back to Bangkok. Nice little hotel with a lovely pool area, Staff are very friendly. restaurant menu and food wasn't bad! The only down side was the room being on the small side with the sink literally being in the centre of the room. Also in the night we could hear what sounded like someone trying to get in the room from the balcony, Turns out in the morning it was the aircon on the outer wall coming on and off lol. Nice location with a family house outside making pan cakes! You could go and sit with them while they was eating. the airport transfers like most places was very very expensive! I recommend you flag down a cab.

We extended our stay an extra night in the Phuket area, but had to move out of the resort we were staying in ... they were completely booked, so we moved here for our last night. The room was very comfortable and spacious. The pool was one of the largest I've seen in a Thai hotel. Everything was very clean.

The only thing that kept me from giving it a full 5 star rating is that they seem to cater more to Asian tourists than European or American ... which is not so much a criticism than an observation. The staff, though they spoke English, it was obvious that, at least the ones I came in contact with, struggled with it quite a bit and had a very heavy accent making it difficult to understand at times. Please note, I am married to a Thai, and am used to an accent and don't expect people to not have an accent ... it would just be helpful if those in a tourist associated industry spoke a little better English. Plus, there are a LOT of Europeans visiting Phuket who speak English as a second language, too ... 2 people trying to communicate in a non-native language to both can lead to some difficult times communcating. Also, I was personally a little disappointed in the breakfast, as it also catered more to their Asian guests than Euro/American guests. There were a small amount of breakfast items I was used to, but the vast majority of offerings would appeal, mostly, to their Asian guests.

Overall, though, it was a very nice stay and I'd recommend it.

This hotel is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main Town area. In fact you will have to drive away from the main road to find this place. The rooms are clean and nice. You can even opt to have rooms that are right at the swimming pool. This means that you could access the pool from your balcony. If you do not have your own mode of transport, it is not a real issue as you can always have all your meal from the hotel. Just skip the Raw fresh water prawns. I had a nice trip to the doctors after that.
