Great value for money, conveniently located at a reasonable distance from the airport, and close to a giant shopping mall called Central Festival in Phuket Town. Great pool by a marina. Bedrooms very clean, quiet and cosy. Staff a very polite and helpful. Buffet breakfast was mediocre. There was also an excellent Supermarket in the complex, very well stocked with varieties, even hard to find quorn (vegetarian food). Will definitely stay here again.

We were staying here at one of the resort villas, the concept is good, but with more empty shops than open ones, and only a couple of good restaurants out of the many it was a let down.
The fact that you can not ride your scooter inside is stupid and stops people from wanting to come in and look around. The walk from the scooter park to the restaurants is about 15 min, in the hot heat. And then there is noting much to see.
The security are rude and middle gate.

Good things - great scooter rental at the from entry - behind the taxi stand - very nice man, very good deal $200 baht per day, great scooter
Great laundry service - by taxi stand only $30 baht per kg
And the best, Massage is at Toi so by the taxi stand turn down the side road and last shop - great service and 1/3 of the price of the overpriced hotels and resorts.
Food market is handy
Fantastic Italian Resturant
Marina is a waste of time. And Villas are very run down, dirty,

I was visiting Boat Lagoon on business. We decided to have lunch and look at the facilities at RPM which is literally right next door. It only took us 2 minutes from Boat lagoon by car via the main road. However it took us 45 minutes to get back!! Despite the fact that these marinas are next door to each other they don't have a simple access between the two. It's ridiculous. We had to drive miles and do a u turn in crazy traffic. I can't believe that they can't see how stupid this is. Maybe they are locked in a petty competitive war rather than realising that a rising tide lifts all boats. If the two were connected more visitors would be happy to visit both at the same time.

The east side of Phuket closes up early. Really early. It may be what some people are looking for but for most people staying up late and ordering food or walking around all night trying street food is one of the main reasons for visiting Phuket. Our hotel was there as part of a time share marketting scheme we were a part of for a free stay. We got a boat tour to Phi Phi Island which didn't last nearly long enough. If you get a chance to stay on Phi Phi Island for a while, do so. Plenty of other tours on offer from Boat Lagoon but if you want to go to Patong Beach, it will cost you about 500 to 600 Baht each time which isn't cheap by any standards. Thats just one way. So it costs us about 40 dollars Australian! There are a few good restaurants around the area though but everything closes really early and not much to do after hours unless you travel a fair ways. I hope this review has been helpful.

I live basically across the road from boat Lagoon and I'm starting to just love the fresh & new concept. The villa market is my spot. I'm always in there. Some of the restaurants are spending some money on proper chefs and management. I'll point those out more.. (but definitely worth the visit) the hotel is an eye sore and needs a huge upgrade. Hopefully that will happen sooner then later. Im Excited to see how they develop that place further in the coming months...
I will say those restaurants that think they can still serve terrible food with bad service in the boat Lagoon.. look out.. some places are starting to go above and beyond.. delicious...
