We have stayed at the Amata four times. This time unfortunately will be the last. It seems to be under new management and in only one year it has gone from very good to very bad! The rooms are still charming, but not very clean anymore and they need urgent attention. The restaurant can only be described as DIRTY! We had to insist on the table cloths to be removed every morning as they were standing from dirt. The eggs at breakfast were unwashed and therefore dangerous. The rest of the buffet was insufficient and messy. Complaining didn't help. We never bothered with dinner as every night only offered yet another bad buffet and so we went across the road to the Two Brothers Restaurant which is great. Clean, friendly and cheap.
The Amata also started allowing cheap Russian and German tour groups in. The Germans as expected, covered ever beach chair in towels at 5am although they were going on day excursions and only got back at 4pm. Nobody from the hotel bothered to do anything about this. The Russians got drunk and loud on the beach most nights. So no peace and quiet anymore either! The Pool is lovely but can't be used as there are no deckchairs at all and it's surounded by the dirty restaurant. Never saw anybody using it.
It is such a pity, it used to be a great resort. The resort next door The Sandoway Resort is absolutely fabulous. Definately our next choice.
