Reviewed July 31, 2013

On previous visits to Phuket we have stayed in accommodation ranging from private villas to 4 and 5 star hotels all of which have been wonderful in there own right.
On this occasion the main purpose of our trip was to allow my wife to have some dental work carried out.(Which by the way was sensational with a very satisfactory outcome...recommended!!).
We chose Amata initially as it was low cost and almost next door to the Dental Clinic.
From the moment we arrived until our departure 14 days later we enjoyed the great value for money,service and attentiveness from all the staff. Our Deluxe Pool View room (730 in the new wing) was basic but clean with a comfortable King Size bed, balcony and view of downtown Patong. Location was perfect with a great Thai and tourist atmosphere. Breakfast was substantial and enjoyable.The rooftop and ground floor pools provided for welcome relief upon return to the hotel after a days activities.
But the overwhelming feature of this place is the people. All staff were so kind and helpful from reception to restaurant, security and bell boys. Congratulations Amata and thanks!! Khob Khun Krap!!!!

This place is not quite as flash as the pictures show but it was still a nice place to stay and I would go back. The rooftop pool is great, its about a 10 minute walk to Bangla road and 15 to the beach so we didn't have to pay for taxis which was good. The staff are all very friendly. It's definately a great choice if your travelling on a medium budget.

We stayed twice at the amata and really enjoyed both our stays. The staff were friendly, particularly the guys at the front desk, near the pool. We got a free upgrade because we had to wait 10 minutes for our room, it was unnecessary as we had arrived early. But it was a lovely treat, the room was fab, it over looked the main street and was surprisingly quiet. Great quality for the price.

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.

Room Tip: As high as you can get

The location was great! we got around Patong mostly by walking and cheap food was around the corner. There was also a shop near the hotel offering tour packages and it opened till late so we could book tours scheduled for the next morning spontaneously.

The hotel staff are friendly and service was good. When we first arrived at the hotel, we were warmly greeted and offered glasses of fruit punch. Also, when we had problems with the safe in our room (it was spoilt), the housekeeping staff were very friendly and patient in helping us out.

The rooms were clean and spacious, only bad thing was the view from our balcony, so we kept our curtains closed most of the time. What I liked about this room was that it had triple beds, instead of the usual double bed + 1 foldable extra bed that most hotels offer.

Room Tip: A room with a pool view would be better.

We stayed here at for two days and found the Resort to have everything we needed and more. The staff were lovely, we had safe car parking, The pools and spa were lovely and clean. The deluxe rooms were clean and large with a lovely sunny balcony with pools views, They had a huge selection of TV channels, even Santana which has Australian Rugby. They had a fantastic large range for the buffet breakfast too. Close to all the night life of Patong but quiet when you get to your room. Ideal place to stay. The bed was harder than we like.We would stay again.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are good..

Our room was pretty large, very clean and the bed was really comfortable.

However a few improvements, especially to the roof top pool, which frankly was a wasted opportunity, would have improved our stay no end. So prioritising this would make a huge difference!

Nevertheless this hotel was good value for money and very well placed.
