Good hotel, but little bit old and need to modificate with new safety boxes, new electronical door loks (I lost one key and payd for that 1500 baht - very expensive), not have Wi-Fi internet connection, and internet access is very bad in the lobby and too expensive

Nice & Relaxing
Quiet, On the Beach, Lots of Trees, Nice walking distance to restaurants/shops
Not the newest resort, but we loved our stay. Staff were helpful, breakfast was yum, the resort was always clean & right on the beach.
Sugar Cane restaurant was amazing. Beautiful food & great service & only a 2 minute walk from the reception.

Great Hide Away Hotel
Secluded location, great pools & beach
We had a great room, View of the one of the pools & garden but could see clearly all the way to the ocean. Beautiful! Pool on the other side of the complex was fantastic. Food was good. It was very peaceful and relaxing. Beach was super clean and the water was warm.

Resort not like resort
Only the main pool is acceptable in this run down hotel resort.
Please do not be fool by the pictures from this website..
It pains to call this place a resort when it is more like a half way house..
The food is also very bare and nothing to beat about..
Beer is charged at 180 baht for a big bottle.. phew..
There is nothing around this hotel.. it is a dead place...

Good Hotel at Bang Tao
The room is big and spacious, the building is a little bit old but clean. Breakfast is good. Close to beach and Laguna golf course
I stayed at Amora for a golf tournament trip. It was so closed to the course that I went to. 10 minutes drive to the Laguna Golf Course. This hotel is apparently not aiming to the euphoria of Phuket entertainment, so don't expect for cafes or great pubs surround the area. But it was really close to Bang Tao beach. You can walk and enjoy the sunny and clean beach of Bang Tao.
The hotel is less noisy and not too crowded. You can easily relax to enjoy the atmosphere of Bang Tao beach.
The facility is also ok. There are 2 big swimming pools if you are not really in the mood to swim at the beach.
Overall, it was a good budget hotel for a specific purposes, which for me is to play golf. I recommend this for families and golfers (especially those who consider value of money).
Hotel Feature Tip:
Ask for a shuttle service from the hotel, because it was a lot cheaper than calling a cab (cost 500-700 baht). Or rent a car for +/- 1500 baht per day so you can drive yourself to Patong whenever you want it.

The pool was lovely. The beach was quiet. Our room was adequate, clean and quiet.
Weenjoyed our stay here however due to monsoon weather th beach was covered with rubbish, which was very disappointing and meant our only option was to lie by the pool. The resort and pool are fine and its a very quiet area if that is what you are looking for.
The taxis out front are very expensive. My husband hitched a couple of rides with the locals. They are very friendly and were more than hppy to give him a lift back from Tescos

Fantastic Deal outside the high season
Big garden, big Pool, good food in the restaurant, Clean Hotels
we stayed at the hotel outside the high season. Fantatstic. Occupancy was about 10%. I do not know how noisy it is in hot season. I can definitively recommend the restaurant.
Do not go to the tailor at the beach they do not know how to measure. although cheaper than in singapore where I am currently staying it is not worth to ask them for a tailor made shirt. Sleeves were too short and tight.

Pools lovely and clean and very good size. Rooms nice if a bit dated. Proximity to beach great.
Hotel overall good and clean if in need of a bit of updating here and there. Main beef is with the bar prices. Our first night the lounge bar which was meant to be on happy hour from 9-11 was closed so they sent us to the restaurant bar who wanted to charge us full prices. No way, 160 baht for a large Heineken, I don´t think so. Staff were at the beach bars all day and I only ever saw then serve drinks when it was happy hour. Make the prices reasonable all day and you might sell something!
The village was very quiet. Don´t walk to the village by road, use the beach, much quicker and nicer.

The position by the beach was wonderful, the staff were always polite, helpful & friendly
We loved the hotel and its in a beautiful position. Food was excellent. Wide choice of food for breakfast, restaurant in evening was good However due to lack of clientel only one restaurant open.
The whole area was suffering from a lack of tourists (May 2010) and though it was a lovely spot at times it was just too quiet.
Staff were always helpful & friendly.
Quite expensive to go anywhere else on the island.
But generally loved it.

Would not recommend
Very close to beautiful Bang Tao beach
I would not recommend this hotel at all to any of my friends. The customer service was shocking - the staff even tried to obtain higher prices in relation to taxi's then it should have cost. We had an incident with a taxi and the staff would not call any other taxi company for us - they wanted us to use their dedicated taxi service, in which we did not want to as they taxi driver yelled at us. Worst experience in terms of hotels ever!
Head to Lotus Restaurant in Bang Tao (not in the hotel!)
