My husband and I are traveling to Phuket at the end of February, and based on my research, I think the Kata area would be good for us to stay. However, I'm having difficulty making a decision about the hotel where we will stay. We are a couple in our late 20s and want a hotel that is walking distance to the beach, shops, and restaurants. I was considering the Metadee or the Avista, but have seen some negatives about both hotels based on reviews so I'm definitely open to other suggestions as well. Our budget is about $100-$200 per night. Any suggestions or input based on others' experiences would be greatly appreciated. Thanks you!!
