Just average
friendly, clean, proffesional
Their signature pool was closed due to maintenance, & with hotel exterior refurnishing (noise, dust, etc.) we left the hotel all day. As a resort with the circumstances above, management needs to give communication or consideration to the construction situation. Staffing was good except one breakfast male worker was not friendly at all. WiFi connection was good and room and hotel was always clean. I cannot comment their restaurant (or bars).

Great location Poor management
Location and discounted room
The Kata beach area is a great location for a Thai beach holiday. My disappointment stems from the way my family and I were treated by Mr Anu the Duty Manager. Following a simple discrepancy on the hotels listing on Agoda, he insisted that we pay an extra 4,000THB so that he could provide breakfast my two children for our four night stay. Once we began to question this he starting shouting and making a scene. I will certainly visit Kata beach again, but not this hotel. We booked a room with four beds and were told it only included two breakfast . No problem with that the problem we had was on arrival all we were handed a 4000 baht bill whenwe said we would skip,the breakfast we were then told it was hotel policy and we would have to pay it. Bearing in mind we had just arrived this is what we faced we were really upset. After which we where then threatened we a further charge for having f our people in a four bed room imagine. This was because when we booked it would not allow us to put the number four in the box. However I though that as it was the more expensive four bed roomm this would not be a problem. The duty manager then tried to book the same room on line and he could also not add a four. Well that shut him up. Basically the best thing about this hotel was the maid who was really sweet and hard working and Kamu who meets and greets . If you have kids don't bother . Probably great for couples two,in a room who have breakfast included.

Good hotel but not memorable
Convenience, value, breakfast
Had a good stay at the Avista, it is convenient base for visiting Kata, but as a base rather than a place to spend time. Staff were efficient and polite, and the breakfast choice and quality were good. Didn't eat there in the evening so cannot comment on other food, the bar and restaurant looked very quiet. Pool is ok for a dip but no real ambience. Allowing large groups of wedding guests to monopolise the pool bar, including playing their own music is not particularly pleasant for the remaining guests. Less mobile guests might find its elevated location tricky.

Swimming pool under construction
It was okay. But the pool was under construction throughout our stay which was a major set back as we were not notified in advance during the time of booking.

Old yet room was okay
Staff were friendly and helpful. The food was okay but very limited to one dining restaurant only. The pool was not too big and there was another smaller pool but it was closed?
