karen W. from United Kingdom
Stayed 8 nights in February 2013
not much atmosphere
breakfast, pool and big bed
Overall the hotel was fine, although it lacked atmosphere and I feel the cost of the accommodation was overpriced and didn't deserve the advertised 5 stars. The hotel was full of russians who were unfriendly. The hotel was up quite a steep hill, so walking into town and the beach was fine, but the walk quite hard work - i feel this should have been mentioned.

Nice Hotel
nice pool
During the low season, the hotel offers the good rate. It is the medium size hotel. It's quite new when compare with the nearby hotels. The location is a bit up hill. You've to walk up hill. To go to the beach, it's 10 minutes walk.

Clean , Nice hotell. Big room. The Hill up to the hotel was shorter Then I thougt after reading some comments here. If you don't care for the exersise, take a tuktuk. the hotell was near the beach. pool was good With Nice beds. Only thing to pick on here was the internett speed, that was bad . Could definetly Stay at Avista Again.

Cosy room, clean facilities
Great service
Check-in was effortless and fast, and the staff led us to our room within 15 minutes upon our arrival. The room was really wonderful! The balcony was also a great place to catch the sunset. We have heard much about the dreaded climb up the hill and it was indeed a sight to behold. I had to walk slowly with my companion (who was recovering from a foot injury) and climbing up and down the hill was a little taxing especially if one had to be extremely mindful along the way. There were plenty of places to dine at. The beach was also nearby and the hotel provided a free shuttle service to and from the beach in the morning. We both had a very enjoyable time and would definitely consider going back again!

Very nice hotel in a quite area
Large rooms, great pools, tasty breakfast
We enjoyed all each of days of our stay at Avista. The room was large with a nice balcony. Clean and spacious pools where our 3-year old child was having a lot of fun. He also enjoyed the kids club a lot. Very good breakfast selection, lots of fresh fruit and bakery. We were pleased to be presented a complimantory bottle of champagne a day before our departure - a nice gesture that makes you feel special. The hotel is located on the hill which we did not like first. But after a day or two we all, including our grandmother, got used to walking up and down several times a day and it turned out to be a great excercise! Location may be a bit quite for those who like to be in the center of fun. But it only takes 5 minutes to get to all the cafes, bars and shopping area.

Lovely hotel suitable for family with kids
Swimming pool, breakfast, room size
A lovely and quite hotel with a lot of facilities including even a kids club with so many toys inside. My baby(15m) just loved there. They also have a kids pool so this hotel is very suitable for family with young kids. Location is on a small hill, only 5 min walk to the beach. Breakfast is very nice, not the same everyday. Highly recommendation!
