Have booked flights to Phuket for end of December (four nights) and need recommendations for hotels - want somewhere decent but not overly expensive. Prefer to be by the beach and have other places to eat nearby so as not to have to eat at the hotel. Some nightlife would be good but don't particularly want to be stuck in middle of Patong. Wife will need a gym or she'll go mad!
Would appreciate hearing from people with recent experiences of Phuket hotels to share. Thanks in advance.
