Disappointing - no english spoken by guests & staf
The room airconditioning, hot water, & pool
We were very disappointed. The majority of the staff had no English at all. The staff were pathetic in the dining room particularly in the evening. Water would be brought but no glass.Could not understand what you were trying to order. Tables not reset at breakfast. As a 70 and 75 year old couple originally offered a room on the 3rd floor. A supposed Deluxe pool room looked over a building with airconditioners. Eventually given a ground floor room around the pool. A grilled ham and cheese sandwich was made of warm bread. A club sandwich came with prawns in it. A good Manager might be able to improve the service.

Great Phuket Beach Resort
location, staff, large room
Our stay at the Amora Beach Resort was wonderful. The location is only 20 minutes from the airport...transportation was arranged by the resort for a fee. The resort is located on the beach, but also has large beautiful swimming pools. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially with arraning tours. The room was clean and the food was good. It was definitely a nice place to stay...much better than staying in the Patong area.

Relatively nice hotel with convenient beach access
Beach access
If you want to go to the beach and just stay in/close by your hotel area the whole time, this place works. The hotel is located right next to the beach. There are restaurants all along the beach. You don't need to even leave the hotel. The beach is nice and clean. The area in front of the beach where all the beach chairs are gets fairly crowded. One thing we did not like was that all the beach chairs had towels or something on them very early in the morning (6am-7am) but no people came to sit in those chairs for half the day. People just claim the chairs all day long even though they aren't there for the whole day. Its the same way at the hotel swimming pools. We looked down at the chairs by the pool at they were all taken by 7am! Since we weren't able to find any chairs at the beach area in front of the hotel, we walked a little ways down the beach and rented other chairs for the whole day for 50 baht. It was part of a restaurant and in front of the beach that was almost empty. The beach in front of the hotel is super crowded. The hotel breakfast was pretty good. The staff there did not seem to speak English very well so there was some difficulty in communication if you do not know any Thai. It seems to be a popular hotel for Europeans There were no local or Asian people there at all. The guests are mostly older couples and at night it is very quiet.

Good Beach Access
Nice and easy beach access
The hotel is perfect for the beach but is starting to show a bit of age. The breakfast buffet was cold. The area is quiet and pleasant with trees and beach to enjoy. The staff were a bit forward as I was asked for a tip when exchanging money. There was a nice display of Christmas lights at the hotel that made the holiday feel more like Christmas.

Nice affordable resort
For the quality of the place, it's very cheap
have stayed before and liked that the area is not overly busy even in peak season. rooms are clean and comfortable and were upgraded this time due to renovations. pools are nice. staff generally friendly and helpful. airport transfer was waiting on arrival (at additional cost). breakfast was included and was quite nice. generally though(from both visits) would not bother with other meals at this resort particularly not anything that isn't thai. because it was off season many restaurants nearby were not open (and either needed to be or were in the process of being rebuilt as many are right on the beach) but there are still sufficient eateries nearby. was resort was quite empty in october which was great, generally had pools etc mostly to ourselves! surrounding area is quite lovely to walk around and the beach is long, white and a great place to stroll with a nearby town at one end and other upmarket resorts/shops at the other to see with restaurants/bars in between.

Bit far to reach, very quiet
quiet, close to beach
The hotel is close to the beach but a bit far away to the shopping area (Laguna Village). To go out you need your own car or need to call a taxi. It's quiet but the room is pretty basic. Unless you are looking for a quiet place just to do some swimming, you won't find a lot of fun there.

Good alternative to Laguna hotels
Beach access and great pools
great facilities and access to the beach. Kids will love the pools. Less isolated than the laguna complex down the road and better value.

Quiet Relaxing and Very Pleasant Resort
Swimming pool
We stayed here for 4 days after hectic Bangkok.It was such a nice change,We wanted quiet,and that is what you get,so it may not suit if you're looking for action.Seemed we we're upgraded to a beautiful poolview room,which was so nice,the rooms are a little dated as is the resort,but clean and spacious.Breafast was good and the ladies doing massage on the beach we're pleasant,and good value.I would definately come here again,and recommend to anyone who just wants to chill out.

Lovely, peaceful haven
The gardens and swimming pool are lovely
A large, airy, well furnished and decorated room. Comfortable, king size bed. Nice bathroom. Bed linens and towels spotlessly clean and changed daily. The gardens are beautifully laid out and a short walk takesvyouvdirect to the beach. Had breakfast daily - a reasonable selection of Asian and European food, with eggs (any style) freshly cooked on request. Only complains that most 'hot' food was only Luke warm. The hotel is a short tutk-tuk ridevfrom the villagecwhere there an adequate selection ofvrestaurants and bars. Would be happy to return in the future.
