Me and my girlfriend stayed at the hotel for 10 days after a friend recommended it to us. We had high expectations and were not disappointed at all. The staff were very friendly and allowed us to check in early as we were very jet lagged after almost 24 hours of traveling, this was very much appreciated.
The rooms are very big and we were really impressed with the entire hotel. The staff could not do enough for you and nothing was too much trouble.
Shortly after arriving me and my girlfriend both became unwell (we had felt ill on the plane so nothing to do with the food or hotel before people get the wrong idea), the manager Sumant was very helpful, offering water, light food and contacting us to see if we both felt better and whether there was anything they could do to help.
The food was very good both at the Vista and Sizzle restaurants, in particular Bee at Vista really looked after us. The pool bars were also great. Noi at the main pool was very friendly and made very good cocktails.
The only minor issue we had during our stay was that reception kept adding 2200 baht per night to our bill for dinner despite us being half board. They corrected the issue once but when checking out it had be added to the bill again. Slightly annoying but they were apologetic so we didn't mind too much.
The location is very good, up in the hills and away from the hustle and bustle of Patong beach. It's only a short ride away on the free shuttle which was very handy. You also have freedom and paradise beaches nearby which were great.
Overall we had a fantastic stay and really enjoyed our first trip to Thailand. We are already planning our next trip to the Avista Hideaway!
