You can't do much better than Amata if you're looking for value in terms of accommodation in Patong/Phuket. For a reasonable price, you get comfortable, clean rooms with good basic amenities and most importantly a location that is unbeatable as its located at the heart of Patong and 2 minutes away from Jungceylon which makes it extremely, extremely convenient.
After reading a lot of the reviews about the new vs old building, I felt a little let down when they told me that the rooms i had booked (deluxe) could only be found in the old building and that the new building contained all the standard rooms only which were technically a downgrade.
In the end we had nothing to worry about as the rooms in the old building were actually pretty alright. They were reasonably clean and well-equipped, beds were comfy and the lights all worked. Our rooms were on the 6th floor and though they were the infamous outward-facing rooms, we still had a pretty nice view of the hillside behind Patong. In terms of noise, there wasn't much getting through at night.
Breakfast was adequate and should suffice for most. They pretty much cover the basics - toast, eggs, bacon, ham and a some local dish like fried noodles or rice with some juices and yoghurt and coffee and tea as well. On a side note, the room service was inexpensive and tasted quite good.
Service was impeccable throughout. The staff were extremely helpful at all times so kudos to them. The swimming pools are small no doubt but still good for a dip. The roof top pool is a must-try experience!
I would definitely stay here again on all my trips to Phuket unless I wanted to go to the beach every single day as it makes for a great base to be situated at.
