The hotel room was perfect accommodation for a stay in Patong. The rooms were extremely spacious and clean. All furniture sets are new as well as linens etc etc. It was only 2 min walk to the beach and 10 min straight to the centre of Patong Bangla Road. You dont even need to rent a bike or car, Almost all the places, restaurants, shopping centers are within walking distance. We couldnt ask more for such as conveniences as Amaya Beach Resort Hotel. We felt lucky because we just checked in right after they opened the resort. We enjoyed our time very much to stay at Amaya Resort and we def. would come back again.
There is also Iris Pub at the corner of the hotel which some nights we preferred to hang out in there for a few drinks while listening live music. Thanks again to all hotel staff and management.

It was new hotel in Phuket town. We are surprised of nice concept and decoration. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They try to help always. Room still smells new furniture and all our rooms has pool access :). We complained about air-conditioner but these staff just came and fixed in 30 minutes (It is not often happen in Thailand :)). They have small kitchen, We loved nice foods with cheap price and these management keep kitchen doors open to customers if you like to see. Beach is only opposite of hotel every morning we were on the beach.

Amaya beach Resort is new so everything is new and clean. We even had our own private jacuzzi. Room leads out to the pools so we had a private balcony into the pool area. This hotel is opposite the beach so it is easy to walk across. Plenty of restaurants around selling fresh sea food. Buffet breakfast with everything including lots of fruit. A place just to relax and unwind.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor all lead to the pool.

Ok, where to begin. Looking for a hotel in patong near maximum fitness, we walked by this hotel and booked directly at the front desk. The staff were really nice, took us to a room to show us what it was like, being open for only 3 weeks this far, it's a beautiful, clean hotel. 3500 baht a night, just a few steps from the beach, what more could you ask for right? Well.....they certainly have a LOT of kinks to work out!!!

Problems started with our first rooms airconditioner. The airconditioner wasnt working, would blow cold air for an hour the get hot. So we had troubles sleeping in the heat. I have to say though....the manager John is very nice and tried everything to help us get the airconditioner fixed. We ended up moving to a different room on our third night.

New room.....airconditioner works great!!! But.....through the night sounds like something is trying to break out of it or its ready to fall off the wall. So again.....no sleep. We got tired of complaining about the last airconditioner and dont want to deal with this one. We are on vacation, we just want to relax and enjoy ourselves, not spend our time complaining.

Every morning the housekeepers clean the rooms, open the sliding patio doors and the main door at the same time. Sure enough....every room they clean, the main door slams shut and you hear everyone slam as the clean the rooms down the hall. So much for sleeping in!

Just a few other things that were strange about this hotel: can only get clean beach towels every 3rd day, no laydown loungers at the pool or anywhere to put your stuff when you go for a dip, cant bring your own water or drinks to the pool or they "fine" you, only one room key per room, no patio chairs (although we took the chairs from inside out to the patio), asked for a second pillow, they said no they dont have enough but then our second room had 2??? Mini fridge in room so small only holds about 6 bottles of water.

I would like to emphasize that the staff at this hotel are excellent. All very nice, helpful and John the manager is great. Although I feel bad writing this review so negatively, you must be aware of what you are getting into. I imagine in time, getting all the kinks worked out, this will be an excellent hotel! Just give them time to get settled and it will definitely be worth a try! For now.....I feel like I am going to lose my mind and wish we did nit pay for a full 3 weeks here.
