10/10 Exceptional

Room was spacious with a nice balcony and cleaned well every day. Plenty of bottled water supplied and bed was perfect. Staff were always friendly, polite and accommodating. Easy walking to beach, restaurants and bars. Sure, there are some small cosmetic maintenance issues but that’s expected under pandemic circumstances.

6/10 Good

This is not what I would call a 4* hotel, it may have been previously but it is very tired and has seen better days. The bedding and towels were clean but at times were threadbare. There were no facilities available. The few staff that were available were friendly and very helpful. If you're looking for spacious cheap and cheerful accommodation this is it.

Third time staying here and not really fair to compare it to the first two times, due to Covid. Still good value for money with wonderful staff.

4/10 Fair

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The property was extremely disappointing. This is NOT a resort. It is a hotel. There were no amenities. Just a pool. The daily breakfast was day old rice, noodles with eggs made to order. Sliced bread and jam. Coffee and room temp juice. The water pressure was weak. WIFI worked intermittently, not working more than it did especially in the rooms. There was NO room service. The front desk did not answer the phone after 9 pm. The slats in my bed started to fall and the center of the bed sank. It was never fixed while I was there. The rooms were big and we did have a kitchen with fridge I am sure this place was nice 20 year ago... but not now. If I could, I would ask for a refund.... Do not stay here....

2/10 Poor

I stay in this property in February 2020. I have booked a "Deluxe room with garden view" and I was assigned a ground floor room with no view/privacy (staff members would park their bike just infront to our glass door). Also some furniture in the room was damaged. I complained to the manager and her reaction was apalling, she said that the room was the "right one" and she was aware about the wrong description but it was not her fault (I would have expected the manager to apologize and offer immidiately another room). I informed the manager that I would have had to take this to expedia and she replied "call them". Obviously i did call them and she assigned a different room. I would reccomend to avoid this hotel, there are some good rooms (this is why some people give a positive review) however the hotel is not nice at all, needs extensive maintainance, the pool area is not inviting at all and the restaurant provides very poor food and service, cleaning of rooms is also inadequate. It feels as a 3 star hotel maximum. Never again!

Private pool with dated rooms
We had the 3 bedroom unit which comes with private pool. this was a great bonus and made our stay. The unit is very dated, kitchen not in a great condition. Rooms are very noisy and light as curtains do not block light out. The beds are very hard and pillows very uncomfortable. The bathrooms are good. The breakfast is nice but no atmosphere at this hotel. About a 15 minute walk to the beach and lots of massage places and restaurants about 5 minutes away which is handy.

Avoid Phunawa resort Phuket - poor value for money
We paid £700 for 4 nights and we were very disappointed with our stay at Phunawa resort. At the time of booking we knew the price we are paying is expensive but thought were paying for quality hence the price. Unfortunately this was not the case. This hotel is basic at best and does not warrant being a 4 star hotel, in our view. lists Phunawa Resort hotel as 4 star but that's very questionable. I decided to check the hotel online and most websites list it as 3 star, which we believe is a lot more accurate. The Wi-Fi is near non-existent and was very disappointing. We complained about the wifi every day, and to their credit they tried fixing it but it was a bigger issue. We have up in the end and purchased data on our phones to get internet. Breakfast is very simplistic and the air con is very loud in the room and it is a struggle getting sleep. The bathroom seemed to have some sort of mould on the tap and there was random holes in the walls where they've changed wall switches. We complained at the hotel about some of this but nothing was done about it. We complained to and they told the hotel but the manager refused to do anything about it. Definitely not a good experience and wouldn't recommend it at all. The location is not great and you will need a shuttle service to get to the beach and a taxi to get to the city centre. Taxis will charge you min 300bhatt to take you to the local areas. You are however 15-20 minute walk from Karon beach.
