Andaman Cannacia Resort
Ranked #30 of 56 Hotels in Kata Beach
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We recently stayed for a 14 night trip. the hotel looks as pretty much described on the web, although there are areas which definately need a little TLC.
Reception staff were very friendly and always someone to help translate with the english..we had to move rooms as unfortunately on the 1st floor deluxe, it felt like we was in a dungeon as was facing a huge wall which meant no natural light was received in the room, a little dissapointing since it was our anniversary and this was requested when booking..we did manage to move room with little problem and although no sea view was much better than initial room given..Rooms are large and huge beds, which are nice.
Positivies:

Nice quiet location and wonderful views from hotel over the ocean and mountains (the hill is a steep walk but managable if you are fit and healthy...shuttle services are provided
Friendly staff

Negatives:
The service around the pool is pretty awful and there is none, this could be improved very easily and would appreciated by the guests!

You are charged for WIFI and this is very expensive and very slow...I think this should be free since all the bars and restaurants are free to use.

Breakfast not great and fresh fruit selection could be improved
Not enough sunbeds so therefore maybe they should place some hammocks or mats around the grass area...people put their towels on their sunbeds and then go for breakfast...so be warned to do the same if you want one!

We tried the buffet thai night and was not impressed with the food...although a good selection, most of this was cold from the hot plates and at a cost of £15 not good value..
We ate in the restaurant once and the food was much better here and a good selection. although still cheaper to eat out and so many nice places to try in Kata.

The negatives did not spoil our holiday and i think they could easily make some changes for these little improvements...as is I sadly would not return to this hotel..This is good value, but feel there are probably hotels for the same value a little better...

Room Tip: do not book any Deluxe room on the 1st floor as terrible views...Opt for the 2nd if you are booking...

We had a very nice room with a huge bed. We were very satisfied with the room choice, top floor wedding-suite with Jacuzzi on the balcony. Awesome.

Breakfast was good too, but could definitely be better. A little more variety would be nice.

We liked the fact that the hotel is not located by the beach, but on a hill. The view from the pool is great. The walk to the beach doesn't take long (10 mins max). The hill is quite steep. For younger people, even the ones that are not in shape, it is no problem.

Overall the hotel is very clean, well maintained and quiet. It's exactly what we were looking for. The staff was also very nice and helpful. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be close to Kata, but doesn't need all the noise. We give them one minus for the stiff prices of the wifi/internet. This should really be better and of course for free for the customers.
Maybe next year this will be included ;)

Room Tip: Beautiful hotel. Friendly staff

We arrived at midnight with two young kids to discover our travel agent had booked us for a stay here on the wrong dates! The hotel staff were so helpful and soon had a room ready for us - luckily! They were then very helpful in sorting out our stay, and very friendly towards the kids. Pool area was lovely with lots of pools and areas for everyone. Rooms were nice and big, clean and comfortable. We loved the location, as it was peaceful and beautiful. We found a path behind the pool area that takes you down to the main road, then straight down another path you are at beautiful kata beach. We mostly took tuk tucks back up as our kids 2 and 4 were a little heavy to carry up the hill, but we could have easily done it on our own. Breakfast was great, with heaps of variety. There was always at least one reception member who could speak good English, so we never had any communication problems. In all, we would stay here again!!

The hotel has poor, ill maintained rooms and surly front office staff. My safe and flush was not working and not repaired on the first day. I couldn't sleep well and the air conditioning was weak. The location of the property is on a steep hill and it is not convenient to walk to the market or to the beach. I wanted to check out after day one but could not as I had prepaid. I was happy to change my hotel on my last night in Phuket.
The breakfast is ok but it's difficult to communicate to get a decent omlette made. Phew...never again!

Andaman Cannacia Beach resort is really a beautiful hotel. We were there between the 14th and 21th November 2012.
The room was big, really clean and really quiet. The bed was very comfortable and just huge.
The breakfast are great, a lot of choice of fruit, pancake, bakery or sausage and every kind of eggs cooking.
The staff is friendly and try always to help you. We were upgraded in another hotel of the peach group (peach blossom) and thanks to them, we had a pool vila (private swimmingpool), it was amazing.
The Cannacia hotel is very close to the beach (5 min walk) and there are a great choice of bars, shops and restaurant around. It's not Patong but there are already really a good choice.
I read on tripadvisor before to go there that the climb to go to the hotel from the beach was really hard but it's OK and you will do just 1 Time aday (the night) after dinner because during the day, there is free shuttlebus.
I Will definitely recommend this hotel and won't hesitate to come back.

We had a very nice room with a huge (!) bed. The bathroom didn't have a window, but was also spacious and very clean. We were very satisfied with the room choice.
