    the hands-on approach by the owners
    the proprietors are a rarity in this small hotels, bed and breakfast business. we came to stay a few days and could not love the room and the locationmore. as things do come up in the tropics, we had to move and they could not have been more accomodating. stood behind 'customer is always right' principle and accomodated our needs even to absorb the loss, not caused by them, but to make transition easier. they were polite, correct and principled. i will recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone..

    The most friendly hotel in my Phuket trip”
    Phil and his family hospitality, the cute dog, good eating (makan) places nearby - nice bakery, the pad thai shop (lonely planet)
    this is our last day of our phuket trip. switching from westin siray bay to kata, we hope to have some nice local foods, catch muay thai, elephant trekking + atv the next day. our taxi fetch us from siray bay to villareal height. he seems not familiar with the location, but he called the owner before hand so not that bad. when we arrived by taxi, phil has come out from his office to welcome us. their office is like a family living room, very cozy with his wife, son and a cute dog. our luggage are handled by his petite helper. after some chit chat with phil, he suggested to us that he can fetch us around in this area and show us where are the good foods.we are very happy as food is very important to us. we then quickly went to our room, change and come down again. phil already waiting for us in his car, we impressed on his efficiency. phil drove us around and show us a couple of good food. we have tried a very good masaman curry for lunch, kwong restaurant for seafood (we are seafood lover stay in singapore, the standard here not on par yet), very nice bakery for breakfast next morning, and a must go "the pad thai shop" featured in lonely planet. the location seems not very easy to find by the locals. but phil has been patiently explain to the drivers (for the tour that we signed up outside the hotel). good service! i booked taxi from the hotel to airport on the last day, the taxi is in very good condition and price is better than outside taxi. phil and his wife even let us stay the room for late check out as our flight is night flight without any charges! the helper even help us to change the towels on the day of check out! we are impressed with their service standard and hospitality. they very genuine and helpful person. they really made our day in kata. it was a wonderful experience at kata because of them. we will certainly be back to stay for few more days as we talked to phil's wife, she said she still have many insider places to share

    Close to the beach but far enough away to be quiet, this hotel is modern, comfortable and elegantly styled. What sets it apart though is the owners, who were exceedingly warm and helpful. They were genuinely interested in my comments about their hotel and facilities and nothing was too much trouble. When I inquired about getting a taxi, they drove me themselves. I highly recommend Villareal Heights Hotel.

    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 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.

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.

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.

    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. Pros: -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 Cons: -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".

    Best hotel experience in Kata/Karon beach”
    Awesome staff, comfortable rooms, quiet area
    The taxi driver that we hailed at the airport did not know where the hotel was at first so that was a bit stressful. But from the moment we arrived until we left a week later, the hotel staff (Phil, Jo, and Diane) made our stay one of the most memorable in Phuket. Phil, who’s British, was great in introducing the area to us when he personally took us around town. He also helped us get breakfast just down the street. We got an upgrade on our room to one that has view of the mountains and the courtyard/road but noise was never a problem even with road traffic nearby. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable with daily maintenance and good internet. The friendly staff went well beyond expectations to make sure we felt at home. They suggested restaurants and places to go. They gave honest suggestions on day tours. It’s totally true: you get what you pay for! Then they did all the bookings so we had no hassle at all. The hotel is about 15 minutes from the beach by foot which is great since it makes for a nice walk after delicious meals! When they booked our taxi back to the airport, we felt sad to leave such a nice and friendly place. We will definitely be staying here if we are ever in Phuket. Highly recommended!

    Right when we arrived the owner and his staff gave us a warm welcome, a beer, and a personal tour of the town so we knew where we were. Amazing.
    My boyfriend and I had a fantastic stay. My only complaint is that it was too short. We were a close walk to the beach and there were restaurants and shopping the entire walk there. The owner of the hotel gave us a lot of good information about where to eat and what to do. They can help you plan tours and excursions in the area. We left on Christmas Day and one of the staff members even gave us an ornament to take with us. The customer service here was better than any hotel I stayed at in my two weeks in Thailand.
