My thoughts about the hotel
I really did my research before I booked this hotel. And my expectations I had before arriving to The Nap Patong was met and more.
After a week in a small scuba diving liveaboard room I was very pleased with the size of the room that I got. It was very spacious and good planned. It had a big wardrobe space where I had my bags and could hang up the wetsuit to dry. Perfect! The bathroom was enormous with a really big shower as well. And it had really good water pressure so I could shower my hair with no problems at all. Score! In the main area of the room there was two queen size beds, I choose this room at fourth floor over the one with a king size bed on second floor. But it actually turned out great. Because I stayed at The Nap Patong by my self this time I got the one bed to sleep in and the other one to have stuff on and sit on during the day when I was in the room.
The room was connected to a private balcony with a view over the pool area. It was a really big balcony with lot of space to sit. There was a sofa and a table and a drying rack to dry wet bathing clothes and towels.
My room had a great and quiet AC that worked perfect and set the room temperature as I wanted. The room also had a mini fridge with free bottled water, always great to have fresh water nearby. I experienced that the room was very clean and fresh. I didn´t see any dirt or bugs anywere and that was a really good thing for me. The hotel offers free wifi and surprisingly that was quite fast internet. Yeey!
Food at The Nap Patong
Since the hotel offered room service and I was very tired after all the diving I did, I decide to order a club sandwich and a fresh pressed orange juice the first night at the hotel. It was delicious and can really recommend it if you are tired after a long travel or so.
Not to forget, the breakfast. Oh, yes the breakfast. It was REALLY good. There was a huge selection of things, everything from eggs, sausages, thai food, pancakes, a lot of fruits and vegetables. A huge selection of cereal and yogurts and of course some juices to choose from. Everything was very fresh and warm and I was very full when I left the breakfast area for my daily adventures. If I came back to this hotel with Daniel I know I would travel with one happy and satisfied man!
From the first steps in to the hotel and my room I felt very relaxed. It was a good atmosphere around with all the water and the other guests was nice and polite and we nodded at each other when we met in the elevator. The staff were fantastic, especially the lady in the SPA. Read more about it here. The Nap Patong is located in a place where it´s near to everything but not in the middle of everything. It´s neighbor with a good resturant as well as a supermarket which is always good for more food and water.
I will definitely recommend this hotel if you are going to Patong. And I will for sure come back to The Nap Patong in the future.
