Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Amethyst in December 2011 between Christmas and new year. We booked through agoda and paid around £22 a night. We got off to a rough start as the receptionist firstly told us there was no room available but offered us a room at a nearby hotel. After asking for our money back due to the inconvenience he then told us 'actually' there was a room for us. Once the issues were resolved and he kindly helped with our bags we were pleased to find a nice fresh and clean room. It had a balcony, good air con, tv, safe and complementary water. There was a 'wet room' with shower, sink and toilet. For the price the Amethyst is ideal and in a good location. Close enough to road and the beach but far enough to not have to hear the racket! It has shops, quiet bars and restaurants within easy reach and nearby taxis and tuk tuks. The only negatives I could say are:-
*several mix ups with members of staff over room and booking
*my boyfriend and i got bitten under the sheets at this hotel and not really affected elsewhere (stayed at several hotels on this holiday)
Despite these negative points I would certainly stay at the amethyst again and for the money you can't complain! I would definitely recommend.
