Run by Phil and Jo, who are the loveliest couple I've met, Villareal Heights offer clean, comfortable rooms for outstanding value. Jo gave us a little tour of Kata and pointed out good restaurants. Nothing was too much trouble, from chasing up our dive operators, to booking airport transfers, giving us free coffee vouchers, organising a spa experience for us, to posting postcards! The service at Villareal really is the best part about the place. Wish I could give it 7 stars for service instead of just 5!
The room was a little dark, as we were given one facing the back of a cement wall, but it came with a kettle, fridge (with free water replenished daily), tv and ensuite. The room and bathroom was kept spotless - I felt really bad tracking in sand from being at the beach! There is also a lovely pool and cafe on the grounds, which we regrettably didn't have time to use.
Location wise, Villareal is a little further from the centre of Kata town, which can be a blessing given the noise and madness that a night in Kata can be. It is about 10-15minutes walk uphill across a busy street, so would not recommend for older folk, unless you have your own car or motorbike, or are planning to tuk-tuk/taxi everywhere. We walked everywhere and it was no hassle at all as everything is pretty close by.
Would recommend Villareal to all my friends!
