We stayed at the Sunwing Kamala resort for 5 nights. Our children aged 4,11,12 yrs old had a great time. They would have been happy to stay in the resort pools all day! Our 4 yr especially loved Bernie and Lollo’s appearances throughout the day. There were plenty of activities for both young and old in the resort. The breakfast buffet had a huge selection that we all enjoyed every morning. Studio room had plenty of room for all 5 of us and our luggage +++. Had poolside massages every day we were there for 300 baht/hour. Our girls loved the hair braiding services too. Short walk to local shops and restaurants. Easy distance to Patong by car. Would definitely stay here again.
This is not a place to stay for a quiet relaxing trip. For families with older children (teens +) I would recommend somewhere else (perhaps the Sunprime resort next door). Beds were hard and uncomfortable and the walls felt paper thin. You could hear the cleaners and other guests moving around making it difficult to sleep. Location was good if you're not planning on travelling around Phuket much, there were plenty of options to each and the beach was at your doorstep. Taxis and Tuk Tuks are expensive in Phuket (compared to Bangkok), so I would choose somewhere more central if you're planning on visiting other places in Phuket.
A good resort for families with children. Many pools with water slides and daily activities for young kids. Direct beach access from the resort. Dining options are plentiful with many restaurants within a few hundred metres of the resort.
Sunwing is in a great location and right on the beach and the pools are wonderful. Kids loved the slides and going from pool to pool. The staff at the kids club were wonderful but we found that the Thai people at the hotel and in general are not very friendly. Having been to Thailand 10 years ago the difference in the service and how westerners were treated has changed enormously. We didn't let it ruin our holiday and would recommend the resort as it's fantastic for families with children.
The staff were friendly, the resort had 8 beautiful pools and lots to do if you wanted to do it, also a very beautiful place to relax and have a cocktail or two.
great for kids - some things overpriced
Thank you to all the staff of Sunwing who again made our stay magical. We particularly like how everything is thought of...
Been a few times now and find the resort lovely but next time may try next door ..love the location ...
Sunwing was a great family resort. Location was excellent and close to local markets and restaurants. Highly recommend this resort for families.
Great hotel for families and as always Thai people extremely helpful. Special thanks to Monte at the front desk. With the number of families at the hotel it still didn't take long for them to remember our child's name and call him by name as they passed by. Or pick him up and make a fuss of him.
The facilities were quite impressive from the baby room, miniland (like a crèche that have activities for all ages during the day) the pools were fantastic for all ages with plenty of activities throughout the day. Food was much better than anticipated when comparing to other hotels. Children eat free and there is always something they'll like.
It really wasn't an expense to eat at the hotel everything was priced quite reasonably so you don't have to always head out. Nightlife was good for all ages at the resort and nice restaurants along the beach to choose from. Great steak restaurant not far either.
Minimart on site catered for most things and was cheap to stock up on snacks and drinks. Wasn't much they didn't have on site in case you forget something.
Taxis are priced accordingly so the bigger the group the better it will be for you, otherwise hire a car if you wish to explore around Phuket. Night market nearby and was very good to find that souvenir without inflated prices and a chance to give your negotiating skills a whizz with the locals.
Overall a great family experience and holiday that we would stay again.
Had a relaxing stay in the resort, loads of pools to swim in, quiet clean rooms with wifi for teenagers to keep in touch with friends. Great location - on the beach and walking distance to local shops, night market and FantaSea theme park. We went in low season and had pools to ourselves many afternoons. We enjoyed our two bedroom room with views over the pool. Recommend this as a great place to stay for families.
A fantastic value for money treasure of a resort!
Couldn't fault Sunwing, the family really liked their stay. Rooms are clean beds are comfortable. We had a family room which i would highly recommend. It's a quick walk to the beautiful beach which have bars and restaurants on it and just off the beach a street of shops and more restaurants. If you like Patong it's 400baht one way it's only about 10 mins away there is a taxi service out the front or tuk tuk. The buffet breakfast was good, the restaurant food for lunch or dinner was really nice and kids eat free off the kids menu. Overall had a great holiday and would definitely stay here again.
We had a wonderful stay.
The only constructive criticism we have is that more shade over the pool area would have been better.
We also felt that we could have had a better room allocation. We are a family of 5 with teenage children. The bedding consisted of two King beds and a day bed.
We are aware that there were rooms that contained 5 beds.
Overall great place to stay.
The brilliant thing about the Sunwing is that it is catered towards kids and families. Lots to do in surrounding area as well as the resort. Lots of pools. Close to the beach.
We really enjoyed Sunwing. The room was great, and so was the location and close proximity to the beach. The kids eat free offer at the restaurant was great and food was really good. It was disappointing that the main pool was closed for the duration of our stay, but understood. Kids club and entertainment was good but more geared towards younger kids ie up to 7. Lovely restaurants on the beach, shopping in Kamala and wide variety of massage options. Rooms were a bit noisy at night as noise seemed to travel,
I think when a room is booked for 3 people and paid for 3 beds, there should be 3 cups, 3 glasses, 3 chairs - we had to ask for the extra glass & cup and only got them on the day we were leaving - the chair we moved over to our poolside terrace from the pool area.
Otherwise, great holiday and poolside room - magnificent. Word of advise, don't book a Happy Baby room unless you have kids - sooooo many kids in that huge pool.
I would recommend this resort to anyone. The surrounding area is not busy and hectic like patong there is enough for you to do for dining and entertainment a great place to unwind. Resort swim up rooms highly recommend, and go and visit Pau at the swim up bar he knows everything about aussie cricket.
Will definitely be returning!! Loads of pools, quiet, busy, bar, slides etc so plenty of options! Hotel is aimed at kids, loads for them to do and the staff are so caring and keep them entertained whilst you eat dinner etc. Massages on site are fab! Water aerobics etc. Kids eat free in the restaurant. Constantly cleaning, can't fault it!!
This is a resort aimed at Norwegian and Russion clients. As Aussies we were one of only a couple in the whole resort. Entertainment was provided in a foreign language (Norwegian?)
Service was basic but the kids had a hoot!
Great restaurants in walking distance which has amazing service and were affordable.
Everything close by like 7-11, money exchange, restaurants, beach, Friday night markets. Resort caters for everything and meals are similar price as near-by restaurants and great quality. It is a quiet area, if you are after more action, Patong and Karon Beach cater for more tourists. This is an ideal area for families with young children.
Location is great and resort is set up for families especially young children.
Quite a distance out of town, transport is required when going in and out of town - no free shuttle offered.
Great resort for young children and lovely beach access.
Two families with 5 kids between 2 and 8 years. 8 pools, cheap food at the resort but close enough to other options. Kamala is a small and quiet which is great for family activities but not so much for shopping, etc. Having said this, Patong is only 15 min away. Loved it.
My family and I Spent 2 weeks at Sunwing Kamala beach and thoroughly enjoyed it. Quality accommodation. Would recommend. Located in quiet area for families. Beach a little disappointing but could have been the time of the year.
We went to Sunwing, Kamala Beach in June which is the slow season. Though it is supposed to be the rainy season it did not rain much. This was a nice time to go because it wasn't too busy. The resort is wonderful. Lots of pools with shallows ends making it suitable and safer for kids. The pools were clean and warm and our kids loved the water slides. The food at the resort is really good, both Thai and Western alike. Can't beat the free kid's meal with the purchase of an adult meal deal!! The beach is a very short walk away also. Highly recommend this resort!
We enjoyed our time at Sunwing very much. It's in a fantastic location right on the beach and you can stroll out on to the beach and enjoy a meal or just drinks whenever you feel like it. The service at Sunwing was fabulous, we were surrounded by happy and friendly staff who made us feel very welcome. There is also a small shop on the premises where you can purchase practically anything and another big bonus is the on-site ATM.
Enjoyable hotel with excellent pool facilities in a superb location.
