Nothing like as advertised!

Bradford, England, United Kingdom

75% of the staff looked like they didn't want to be there. The room smelt of damp and the wardrobe smelt of sweat. Ants were visible in the room both on dresser tables and floor. The hotel is very outdated and in need of a facelift. Many trip hazards by the pool. Ann at the Taxi & Tour desk is a waste of space. Was not interested in helping when making tour enquiries. So much so i had to walk away. Pointless her being there. Taxi to airport is overpriced! They charge 1600 Baht but you can book it yourself for 800 Baht. Breakfast was ok, beautiful sunsets from the pool and a stone's throw from the beach. Cleaners are nice and the chef at the egg station is polite and nice.

I honestly do not understand how this hotel could get so many 5 star reviews. Where do all these people usually stay - Azkaban prison? Really makes me wonder about the authenticity of these reviews. This is what got it sold to us, and I just don’t understand how all these people could rave about this place... It’s honestly beyond my understanding. We stayed at other hotels in Phuket in the past and wanted to try something new - but now I wish we would have stayed at the previously tried and tested places. Please just trust me - there are much better hotels out there! Look at my reviews if you like. Don’t fall for this trap! We arrived to this hotel after staying one night at Marriott Hotel near the airport. Wow what a contrast!! We left Marriott feeling so uplifted and rested - and the moment we walked into the lobby of Beyond Hotel we could feel the mood change. The check-in process took about 2 minutes. There was no info given on what is where, and how. We were given 1 key (!!). And I mean a key not a card. We were taken to our smelly room pretty quickly, through the dark dungeon like corridors. After seeing where we would be living for the next 2 days - I felt like I needed a drink - as one needs to be highly intoxicated in order to be able to stay in such an environment on their holidays. The only thing this hotel has going for itself is the location with easy beach access and ocean views. What a waste of space though as everything else is just terrible! The staff have zero idea about hospitality. Decor is VERY dated. In fact - we felt like we were taken back to the 80s. Room was dirty and SMELLY! Corridors and other hotel grounds are just gloomy. The pools are tiny. I actually had zero desire getting into them, which is not at all like me. The facade of the building is crying for renovations and TLC. The buffet breakfast didn’t have much of a selection and tasted very average. Dishes placed in ‘vegetarian corner’ actually had meat in them. And when I asked about gluten free options I was told that I had to pre order for next day - which I had. The following morning I asked about my order and no one had ANY idea about what I was talking about. Never mind the fact that on arrival to the breakfast room not a single person greets you and wishes you good morning! They also have a pan they call ‘special of the day’ without any explanation of what it actually is. Should really be called ‘surprise of the day’ if you ask me. We got a pool access room and one day I found the door leading to the outdoors open as cleaners forgot to lock the door after cleaning the room - leaving it open for the whole day. Like hello McFly!!! I was pretty pissed off about it, considering there’s no security to be seen anywhere. Overall a feeling of gloom and doom is everywhere. I actually felt so uncomfortable being in this hotel that I have chosen to spend most of my time out and about. The place is just extremely dated - and feels like it had no work done since the 1980s. Glad we are only staying 2 nights. But on the other hand it’s 2 days of our holiday wasted!! Stay away!! In my opinion if you are paying anything over $100 a night for this hotel - you are overpaying! Take your money and spend your precious time elsewhere.
