“Be fussy!!”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Myself and my friend stayed at the Amata just recently only returning home today 11th January.
Although our room was described as a standard room, it was very far from 'standard.'
There were stains on the walls and there was a leak in the bathroom which left the floor
treacherous. The bathroom window wouldnt close. There was a glass door leading onto
a very narrow verandah where one could touch the roof of the building beside us. Because of the lack of natural light the room was always dark. We had to get an upgrade and paid a considerable
amount of money for it but were very happy with what we got. The staff were pleasant and
helpful apart from one or two on the reception desk. Our room was kept spotless and well
supplied with towells and toiletries. The bedlinen was snowywhite and there was a big window leading onto a good sized balcony. Room service was very prompt.

Room Tip: If you are getting the 'standard' room you need to enquire if there are windows and a balco...

Firstly, some things advertised about this hotel is incorrect. There are only superior rooms in the new building, if you book a deluxe you will be in the old building and have to upgrade at a cost. I stayed for 13 nights and after upgrade was given a room on the 8th floor, where the rooms are much better. I found a pigeon nesting with two eggs on my balcony, after they were removed the pigeons kept returning and the mess was terrible. The balcony, bathroom sink and bathroom floor were not cleaned for the duration off my stay. My sheets were not changed at all. They did not check or replace anything in the fridge again for the duration of my stay. The rooftop pool and chairs was never cleaned and were really dirty. There was a bottle on my floor outside the lift that was there for a week before someone actually removed it, needless to say the floor was not cleaned either. They advertise 6 bars, the rooftop pool had a small fridge with a few drinks and there was no food advertised but if you did want something it came on a plate from the restaurant in the other building, 9 floors down and across the other side. The rooftop pool was never open at 11am. There was a small bar at the other pool and one in the restaurant, which you could access when it was open. The restaurant closed at 7pm, so I could not sample the food as I don't eat before 7pm. The breakfast was not worth the 280baht. The staff were all friendly, with the exception of one female on desk in new building. The Wifi worked well, after I had to ask for it to be fixed when I first arrived. Had no TV for 3 days till they fixed the ariel. If the cleaning was done I would say this was more like a 2 star hotel, but only in the new building, the old building a 1 star as the rooms were smelly and the furniture was so badly stained and old. There is a kettle in the room but nothing else. It is very close to Beach, Bangla Road and Jungceylon. Pool towels were provided. It was not worth the money I paid to stay over xmas and New Year.

Room Tip: The best rooms are the superior rooms in the new building with pool view. But maybe not too high for...

Do not stay at this hotel the staff are the rudest most obnoxious staff i have ever stayed with. I paid $100 for one night i was refused outright the priveledge of second card key for the room so as not to have to wake partner. Charged 200baht for a late checkout of one hour as our transport was only coming in the afternoon. Upon forced checking out(earlier than we asked as the room was aparrently booked and needed to be urgently cleaned) we asked for our bags to be kept in the luggagge room for 2 hours and be available at 3:00pm so as not to keep the other passengers in our transport waiting. Upon return our bags where nowhere to be seen and nobody could recall anything regarding request however they knew exactly who we were as they demanded the 45 baht we owe them re minibar. A 25 min run around followed in which time one porter aparrently went to collect our bags another another leaned on the pole next to me and made rude gestures and cursed about our roundeyes in thai, 15 mins latr our popularity with our minibus colleagues waning we decided to get our own bags which we now realised stil sat in our unmade unoccupied room. Pls do yourself a favour if you respect yourself enough to not be snickerd at or outright ignored do stay here

Stayed here for 1 night before moving over to the Casa Jip (which was better).

The positives: Staff are good with English and hotel is in a convenient central location. The rooms are a decent size and the hotel itself looks to be quite clean and spacious.

The negatives: Wifi was down when I arrived and stayed down for the next 24 hrs. When I queried this I was given conflicting stories during which a member of staff openly lied to me (I only found this out later). First room I was given had a dirty bathroom and I requested a move. Second room was nicer but note that the beds are firm. I was housed in the 'budget' wing which doesn't have an elevator. Also note that a lot of noise from the corridor can be heard in the rooms at night.

Verdict: An average value-focused hotel. There are better options elsewhere.

Room Tip: Try not to go for the budget wing if you can avoid it.

Very clean hotel, large room, nice bathroom. Good firm bed.

Unfortunately very poor sound insulation - can hear noise from several nearby rooms, resulting in one sleepless night. Also certain inconsiderate guests using entire corridor as their private space making a great deal of noise.

Rooftop pool is actually swimmable at around 12-13m, although the water taste (it's Phuket) and pigeon poop around the edge do not bolster your appetite for dinner. Can Thai pigeon poop be cleaned off I wonder?

Somewhat depressive staff insisted on charging me 40 baht for the one water I drank from the fridge, despite the fact that the cleaner did not always deliver the promised two free bottles. Shame - a little give and take there and a smile might have ensured my return on the next visit.

Good wifi, works even from top floor. Maps in lobby available only in Russian - great for brushing up on the Cyrillic.

At USD 57 per night however (including service + tax, after Agoda's phoney 60% mega-discount based on laughable initial rate), I rate the value as average even for Christmas week. There are still Mom & Pop places that will rent you a reasonable room for 450 baht in Patong.

First trip to Patong for a decade. Disappointing to see that they still cannot even run so much as a bus between Patong and Karon & Kata, preferring to hand the business to the Tuk-tuk and motorbike mafia - the latter now quoting THB200 just for the few kilometers to Karon. The Thais will eventually be eaten up by their greed once they've completely trashed their environment.

Room Tip: Top floor room nice, even on side facing away from pool.

Great location in busy Patong, large, clean room with a balcony. Friendly staff and nice pools with extea pool towels provided. Please note this is not on the beach but the busy main backstreet but near malls and a 10 min walk to the beach.
