“Decent basic hotel”
Reviewed 26 July 2011

Arrived late in the afternoon without a print out of my reservation because I was short of time. However they offered me a computer with internet to print out my confirmation, for free. Very positive start of my stay. I was escorted to my room through a small but well maintained building. Entered the room to find a nice well equiped room with everything you might need. Iron with ironboard, safe, coffee/tea, free water and a good size sattelite t.v. Bathroom was particularly spacy and the shower looked like it was just recently placed.
The swimming pool is a good size for a small boutique hotel like this and also the restaurant looked very well maintained and inviting. Unfortunately due to business I did not have the time to try this restaurant. They also offer a rather inviting Spa treatment menu, which was also very reasonably priced.

Why three stars and not four? Well there was a issue with the cleanliness of the room and especially the bathroom. All the tabs, from the bathtub till the sink and in the shower were all very dirty. This is clearly something they do not clean on a regular basis while this was not from 1 day. Also the glass for your toothbrush was dirty and on the dark brown box with spare toothbrush and razer were also toothpaste stains.
Also in the room there was a table with two traditional Thai seating mats, these were also dirty just as the window behind this table.

All in all a nice hotel, and a good price quality comparism. Good location just on the side of Phatong and I can imagine for people with a smaller budget this could be the hotel to spend your holiday in.

Room Tip: I was in a ocean view room which gave you a really nice view of the bay

doown the end of the front esplanade of phuket bay is situated the avantika resort opposite the little jetty where the cruise passengers come in ....great rooms , comfy, excellent pricing and typical hard asian beds, but that comes with all the hotels in the area.

Loved time here rooms were fantastic. Double double bed sea front balcony with bathroom that opened into bed room. Spotlessly clean each day. Beach just over road so could pop back for swim to cool down when needed. it is by the ramp south end of beach so nice & quiet with little passing traffic. Walk to Bang La takes ten mins if not shopping. Great retreat for couples well worth a stay.

This hotel did not meet our expectations which were quite high given the quality of pictures in the brochure and on the internet. When we arrived at the hotel we were surprised at how run down the lobby and the grounds appeared. Since we arrived early and the hotel room was not ready, we took the liberty to walk around Patong to see if there were other hotels available in case the hotel room was not satisfactory. Fortunately, we had paid for an upgraded oceanfront room and when shown the room were satisfied with the quality that it didn't warrant extra costs at another location.

What I liked best was the service of this hotel and the friendliness of staff and management. Daily breakfast was freshly prepared and of good quality. Location is convenient to beach and to the nightlife of Patong but far enough away so you were not disturbed by the the revellers.

I was disappointed there were only 5 chaise lounge chairs in the pool area. If you like a plush mattress you will be disappointed as this was very firm. Beach close to the hotel is not the best as there are many small fishing vessels due to the proximity of the pier. However, if you walk 500 yards it is fine.

All in all not a bad place to stay, however we were just expecting a lot better.

It is a wonderful hotel with elegant local charm. The staff are very helpful with happy smiling faces. Its a small, hotel rooms no more than 20, therefore it is very quiet. We had our room upgraded to Delux Sea View. We loved the room very much. Just be careful, the ground floor rooms to the 2nd floor rooms are damp and smell of mold.

Not on Patong prime area yet absolutely walking distance to main shopping area. Near by the hotel, there are Seven-eleven and Family mart. Beach is right in front of the hotel, much more quiet than Patong beach, we were very happy that we didn't get hassled by beach sellers.
We absolutely go back to Avantika again.

I travelled from Hong Kong with my boyfriend, sister and her best mate and it was the first time we had visited Thailand. We chose this hotel based on the great reviews by other people on TripAdvisor, and we hoped it would be as good as they said....

We arrived late at night but the staff were happy to settle us in. They upgraded both of our rooms to the Balcony View from the Pool Access rooms. The room was already air conditioned, two bottles of water, tea and coffee were supplied every day free of charge. Room was very clean throughout our stay.

As our group was between 18-25yrs old we had already planned some trips or had ideas of trips we wanted to go on. The hotel reception was only too happy to point out reliable trips to go on. My sister and her friend had a trip arranged for them by the hotel at short notice for the next day to go snorkelling and visit Coral Island. I was impressed by the service of the lady at reception at her persistence in booking that particular trip for my sister. The trip turned out a success and my sister got some great underwater pictures.
We also booked Kok Chang Elephant Safari and SimbaSea Trips to PhiPhi islands. Both were fantastic.

Of particular note is the helpfulness and friendly face of the hotel owners' daughter; she runs 24hr housekeeping. She always had a smile on her face and sat down with us and pointed out all the places to see around the south side of the island. She also recommended non-tourist local areas to visit.... e.g. deserted beaches away from heckling crowds.

My boyfriend and I also had a joint massage with the body scrub. It was my first time having a massage. It was so relaxing, very good service and the smells were heavenly from the oils, scrub and body butter. I absolutely recommend the Aloe Vera for sunburnt skin! All massages are full body rubs and you are naked. Total cost was £60.13 between the two. Excellent value for money.

The thing I would fault is the speed of the service at breakfast time and the dishes you order don't always arrive at your table, so you have to chase these up. The value of the food is more expensive at the Hotel than the food booths near Hard Rock Cafe. Watch out for the 17% additional charges at hotels too - these add on more than you might think for a meal or a few rounds of cocktails. The 17% dont apply to food stalls!

Swimming pool isn't busy, internet access is by payment card with a code.

Nice place. We paid about $65USD. Very good deal. A bit down the beach, but a $1 tuk tuk ride. About 1/2 mile from the night life which was good. We got massages in the lobby while we waited for our room. They just came out and offered. They didnt have our internet booking (booked the day before) because their internet wasnt working so if you stay, make sure you print your booking. No problem though. Decent pool. Nice bar.
The only 2 negative were that our "pool access" room was actually not. You could open the door and squeeze through all the plants to get to the pool but only in an emergency. :) There are pool rooms though and they looked nice. The rooms are nice as well. The other is the beach right outside the hotel was really gross. Lots of garbage. This place is a good deal though for sure.
