Excellent location close to beachs/restaurants

Posted 24-Dec-2014
Pros: Location and helpful staff
Cons: Less children but then again it was just before Christmas
Location: Very close to both Kata and Karon beaches. Loads of local restaurants at very reasonable prices Fantastic boat day out with 3 dives with Dive Asia
If you aren't fit the walk back to the hotel is a little strenuous after a couple of Changs. Get a Tuk Tuk or cab instead. Staff were very helpful the only problem was there were a load of kids in the hotel during our stay and parents don't seem to want to control them. I have to stay mainly Malaysian not British!! Other than this we would definitely recommend the hotel to others

Massenabfertigung in renovierungsbedürftigem Hotel

Posted 19-Dec-2014
Eins vorweg... Das Personal war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit - recht viel mehr gutes kann man leider nicht sagen. Hotel abgewohnt - erstes Zimmer feucht modriger Geruch Zimmer 109 - Klimaanlage tropft Amaturen rostig - überall Staub und klebriges Zeug auf allen Ablagen. Dusche mit Schwarzem Schimmel in den Fugen - laute Nachbarn bis 23uhr. Alles dokumentiert und bei der Rezeption angegeben - neues Zimmer 222 / Zimmer ok - Amaturen und Bad wieder rostig und schimmelig erste Nacht ruhig - am nächsten Tag wird eine 6 köpfigeFamilie über uns einquartiert??!!!!!!! Lärm wieder bis 24uhr - und nur ein Sorry . Frühstück --- max zwei Sorten Obst und jedes mal Wassermelone / manchmal Café ok manchmal eine durchsichtige braune Brühe -- Säfte alle Instant und schmecken landestypisch süß künstlich... Der Rest is massenabfertigung ( keine Ahnung warum das soviele loben Aber das haben wir in deutlich billigeren hotel wesentlich besser erlebt) Wer mehr als 100€ pro Nacht zählt Ist leider selber schuld mehr ist es auf keinen Fall wert. Anlage ist deutlich abgenutzt... Ich mach viel Sport aber der Berg zum Hotel hat auch mir den letzten Nerv geraubt. Nie wieder Avista!

Very comfortable hotel.

Posted 15-Dec-2014
Pros: Great swimming pool area.
Location: Location voles to beach and town. At the top of steep hill which could be an issue for less mobile customers
Overall very positive, enjoyable stay. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Loved the pool area. Very comfortable with plenty of sun beds and sun shades for those that need them

静かなこじんまりしたまずまずのホテル

Posted 15-Dec-2014
朝食は一通り揃っており味も問題ない。これは良いというものはないがまあ美味しい。 部屋はwifi.TVともにOK,お風呂はバスタブもあり、広い。ベッドルームとの間はガラスで丸見え、だがロールカーテンはある。 ややカビ臭いがこの程度なら問題ない。 最後に、ホテルの立地だが、坂の上にあり歩く人には苦しい。お年寄りと子供連れはタクシーに乗るは人は良いが歩く人には勧められない。日本人は殆どこない。

坂の上のフレンドリーなホテル

Posted 15-Dec-2014
ビーチから少し離れていて、ホテル手前には急な坂を登ります。きつい人はトゥクトゥクを利用すればよいでしょう。ホテル内も階段が多いですが、スタッフの対応も良く部屋も清潔で快適に過ごせました。

nice & very comfy hotel

Posted 14-Dec-2014
Pros: room size..staff...
Cons: to bring more comfort for family traveler, pls consider a pool with an average depth (around 0.8-1m will be perfect). improve the cartoon channel.
Location: lucky we rent a car so we dont have to deal with the steep hill to get to the hotel. near to the kata beach and the shops surrounding
stayed for 4 nites...everything was superb and the only things we have an issues was the pool was to deep my my 6yo boy (kid pool was to shallow for him) and the cartoon channel always not available..not sure why but my kids only managed to watch that few cartoons channel twice only through out our stay there.. food was good and as a muslim, we have a very limited food during breakfast.. staff was superb friendly n nice..

Beautiful View

Posted 13-Dec-2014
Pros: Accommodating and helpful staff members.
Location: Kata Beach is a 5 minutes walk and there's karon beach which is approximately a 20 minutes walk.
We were greeted by warm and welcoming staff members and had a breathtaking room view of the kata beach.

Lovely, pleasant stay

Posted 25-Nov-2014
Pros: The location of the hotel to the beach was good, the size and layout of the rooms were very reasonable and all areas were kept well cleaned.
Cons: The only downfall I found was that the beds were very large however not very comfortable - a bit on the hard side for me.
Location: Locaton to shops, night life and supermarkets was good however the rather steep hill was a bit of a problem - we had to get tuk tuks upto the hotel.
I have just spent 10 nights at the Avista Resort and Spa in Kata Beach, Phuket. The hotel was excellent, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the cleanliness of the hotel was spot on.

Lovely hotel - amazing holiday!!

Posted 24-Nov-2014
Pros: Hospitality
Cons: Bathroom fixtures & fixings in need of some updating.
Location: Fantastic location, in walking distance to Kata & Karon beach, plus lots of night life. Hong Kong / Jack Fashion design is good for suits & dresses!
Lovely, friendly staff, clean hotel in a great location. Breakfast was approx £10 each, but there's a great little place (3rd restaurant along) doing a lovely breakfast for a couple of pounds, it includes fruit, cooked breakfast or omelette, 2 x toast & tea or coffee really nearby (right at bottom of hill, then about 100 meters on left hand side). A shop called Hong Kong / Jack Fashion design is good (professional & good value) for made to order suits & coats and they're just along from the Avista hotel!
