Got upgraded to a suite at no charge (which is something they do often if a better room is available). Very clean place, great staff and a pool that never had anymore than 4 other people at it. 10-15 min walk to both Kata and Karon beach. there are lots of restaurants within a 5 min walk

Good place, helpful friendly staff”
Cleanliness, bed comfort, staff
Stay was good, Phil and his wife were helpful. You need a scooter to stay on this location unless you are planning tours with pickups. Bit of a far walk to karon and kata beach. With a scooter you can explore more, about 200 baht per day for a rental so not bad.

Good stay, Good hosts, Good value”
Hosts were very helpful, wifi-tv were welcome, beach gear for use was free also very welcome
Service was very good. Hosts personable and helpful. Family room was spacious with 2 double beds. Air conditioning was very welcome and worked well. There were utensils in the family room (and kitchen sink/cupboard and refrigerator) that allowed us to keep some food on hand and beverages. Bottled water was provided each morning (as well as coffee in the room, nescafe tubes/hot water kettle). Room and beds made up each morning and room cleaned.
Heated shower which worked well. Small dining table for four was helpful for a variety of other than eating activities.
A fair number of electrical outlets so charging devices and batteries was easy.
Wifi was good.
Pool was available up the block a short walk and we used that a few times....when not walking down to the beach.
The walk to the beach is not long about 10 minutes.
Host advised us on getting a rental car for touring around and that was a good suggestion. We saw a lot more of the area, visited more beaches and got to some different temples and shopping sites. Renting through the host got us a good price (I know I checked several car rental places before taking our host's offer of finding us rental car).
Good value. We would rent again.
Thanks Phil and Jo and family and "crew"

Great family run hotel with brilliant set of hosts”
Great host (Phil), very close to the local market and family friendly
We had a wonderful stay in Phuket at Hotel Villareal. Even though this hotel is not on the beach but we we actually preferred this because it was quiet and not as congested. Phil was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about what things to do, where to eat, etc. He went out of his way to arrange ferry tickets to Phi Phi Islands and transportation to and from the pier on a very short notice. You could just get to Phuket and leave the rest to Phil, who'll be more than happy to help you out in whatever way possible. A very family friendly place as well. I would definitely recommend staying here and would come back.

Great place, great hospitality ”
Quiet and convenient location, knowledgeable, English speaking staff, Jo's coffee
We had a wonderful week in Phuket at the Hotel Villareal. Note if you stay here make sure to have them pick you up as it will be hard for a taxi to find this location, especially if you get in after dark. This hotel is not on the beach but is a quick walk to the beach. We actually preferred this because it was quiet and not as congested. Phil and Jo are extremely helpful and knowledgeable about things to do, where to eat, etc. and Jo makes the absolute best coffee on the island. This is a very family friendly place as well. I would definitely recommend staying here and would come back.

Staff really cares about u”
Staff very helpful, easygoing, quite good location
Clean, simple but nice. When I booked I did not specify I had a young child and the hotel was fully booked, hence I could not upgrade my room that was a bit tiny for 3 of us. However the owners worked things out and they helped us to get a better room. They really work extra miles. Good experience

Great Hospitality from the Owner!”
Great Service, Big Room, Value for Money
Love the initiative of the owner to drive us around to show us some of the recommended food places and areas to go. Booked our island trips from the owner as well as it was the same price as booking ourselves. Room was really big for the price, highly recommended if you wish to stay away from the busy patong beach or phuket town.

A pleasant stay in a quiet area”
Value, Hospitality, Quality
I was looking for a place away from the crowds when I stumbled upon Villareal Heights in Kata. The reviews were raving about this place so I decided to stay here.
I wasn't disappointed. One of the owners, Phil, took my family and I around town to show his favorite spots and even treated us to drinks. He, his wife Jo, and Beverly were friendly. I've never quite experienced hospitality like this before so it was nice.
-Value: Reasonably priced and good for travelers on a budget or want to save money
-Quality: Family Studio room was spacious and very clean. Had a microwave and fridge and a basement bathroom.
-Hospitality: Like I mentioned, Phil is a pretty cool guy. He and Jo seem to go out of there way to talk to guests and make them feel comfortable.
Atmosphere: Nice and quiet
-Location: It's tucked away on a small street and it can be hard to find when arriving. Because it's in Kata, you'll also expect to pay around 900 baht or more to take transportation to get there. Good for those who want a quiet stay.
-Non-Thai: Not really a con for me and my family since we speak English but the owners and staff are not Thai and that may be an issue for Thai visitors or those wanting a more "Thai experience".

Hospitality at its best!”
Phil and Jo, the owners are one in a million. They have spoiled us and treated us more than we expected them to. They treated us like their own family.
The owners are the best owners I've known so far. These two are a power couple. They treat you with the best hospitality this world has to offer.

Great stay at this hotel!”
The staff were incredibly helpful, we had a fantastic room which was clean and spacious and there was a lovely pool which had a great view.
Our stay at this hotel was a really good experience. The staff helped us with everything we needed, from ensuring that we got good value for money, providing sound advice about getting around and organizing a rented car for us. Everything was very efficient and friendly and I would definitely stay here again.

Amazing Staff, great wifi, comfy beds”
wifi, service, comfy bed & mattress
Great place to stay with amazing personal assistance from the owners. Awesome wifi and love the soft comfy beds (so much nicer than the normal hard Thai beds at most hotels). The owner went above any beyond - even showed me around town and the best places to eat and get massages and even arranged free transport! Rooms have nice big fridge. Also there is a big DVD collection to choose from for movie watching. Location is about 15-20 min walk to Kata Beach. 20-25 min walk to Karon Beach.
