“Awesome stay due to the above and beyong hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

My overall experience in Phuket was ok, be it from sightseeing to tours to shopping. But what made my stay in Phuket enjoyable and worth it was the never ending friendly hospitality from the hotel owners, Jo and Phil.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Villareal during mid March. Upon arrival we were instantly upgraded to another room because they felt we would have a better view (we didn't even request it!). Everyone was so welcoming and friendly. The rooms are comfortable and have everything you need.

Jo and Phil are just lovely. Jo makes awesome coffee and their croissants are to die for! its not oily and its a treat to eat! Phil kindly offered us a lift on his bike to the local market and surrounding restaurants and Jo took us on a mini tour (free!) to a lovely lookout place at a restaurant/bar, went to feed some elephants and recommended a beauty/spa place and took us there.

They go out of their way to see your day is and make your stay as comfortable as possible. Highly recommend this place as you cannot go past the friendliness and kindness of Phil and Jo :)

I had such a wonderful stay here! It is in a good location, only about a 5minute walk to Kata or Karon beaches, and away from the more touristy feeling hotels (which was important for me). The bus to phuket town etc. stop on the road outside, and there are a couple of true-thai style restaurants close by. My room was clean and comfortable with a very decent shower, and all amenities including free wifi! And they were nice enough to change my room to one one with a view - thank you! Phil, Jo and Diane were so welcoming and friendly it was like you were family, and they are full of useful local knowledge. Highly recommended.

Great, clean, comfortable room (with a free upgrade without us even asking) friendly staff, and helpful owners. Definitely recommended.

Definitely follow Phil and Jo's recommendations for restaurants as we had some of the best meals of our lives, especially at Mamanoi Originals!

Hotel is very clean. Hotel owners are amazing hosts and full of advice for local attractions and restaurants. Great morning coffee. Rooms are nicely decorated and beds comfortable. We would gave stayed longer if they had rooms!

Firstly when we arrive at a hotel the welcome is most important, what we got was superb. As a family/group we were made very at home by Phil and Jo with drinks and food before showing us to our family rooms. Whether it be first thing in the morning or late at night, someone was around still being very welcoming and happy to help. Phil was very happy to drive us around on occasion to where we wanted to go or to where he recommended. The rooms were politely cleaned to a high standard each day by the lovely Burmese girls. All in all, perfectly placed in between Kata and Karon with everything in walking distance. Would definately stay again.

Stayed for 5 nights, in a deluxe room. The room was basic, but had everything you need. We travelled as a 3 and paid for an extra bed which was very uncomfortable, so I wouldn't recommend this, the normal bed however was fine. Room was clean to a good standard.
Phil was really helpful, took us to see some sights on the first day, ended up feeding an elephant! I also got unwell whilst there, he personally took me to the doctors, which was really nice of him!
Really conveniently located, 10 mins from kata, 10 mins from Karon. Near loads of good restaurants so eating out is not a problem.
For the price, I'd recommend this place for sure.

Excellent from start to finish. From the moment we arrived at Villareal Heights the service was outstanding. We were made to feel welcome as if they have known us all our lives. The rooms are very comfortable, spacious, beautiful decorated though out with sofas, wall mounted flat screen TV and DVD player where there is a wide selection of films for all ages based in the lobby. The rooms are cleaned everyday and supplied with fresh towels. Some rooms have kitchenettes with a microwave and refrigerator or just a refrigerator.
In the lobby you can purchase croissants, freshly made coffees, teas fruit juice and cereals also a selection of beers or wine.
There is also a large swimming for guests to use.
They offer different trips and I highly recommend the John Grey boat trip where you canoe through the caves to see areas of great beauty. Food is freshly cooked on the boat. The main guide provides educational information tied with humour. One word to describe "unforgettable".
If you are going to holiday in Phuket then I highly recommend Villareal Heights for your stay.
