Nice beach!! Nice area!! Awfull room.Posted Feb 15, 2013
Pros: swimimpool and the bach
Cons: room and bed
The hotel itsef has a nice area, lots of green, an excellent swimimpool and thebeach....fantastic!! Beach is quite, clean, white sand, and eventually you can find an ellephant wlkingin the beach. But...the rroms are awfull!! Bed is really bad, old, not clean paintng in te wall and the doors, thesafe never worked and mine, was one of the best, pool view! I would recommend Phuket, the beach, the girl tha arranged all tours throughout the islands, but not the hotel. There are nice resorts around, better then Amora. Look around in Laguna.

Thank you Amora - we will be backPosted Nov 1, 2012
Pros: All staff but especially the Taxi/Tour ladies and the receptionists and our housemaid
Location: It was good, it suited us. It was about 1kilometer from the main road and you could walk up or get a taxi for 100 baht one way
This was our first time at the Amora Beach Resort, as we wanted somewhere where we could have time out after a hectic year, and we loved it. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a Deluxe Pool room which was great. All staff were friendly and made us feel very welcome. The swimming pool was huge and was kept spotlessly clean, also the beach was clean and the both the sea and the pool waters were warm. There were plenty of restuarants nearby and the one that we went to most was the Sugar Cane - lovely food, and not expensive. Even the food at the hotel was not expensive. We will definitely go back to Amora next year as we were simply spoilt, Angela

Good hotel, great pool - location not the bestPosted Aug 25, 2012 on Hotels.com
Really enjoyed our stay here - clean rooms, good buffet breakfast (apart from birds flying in/out of dining area). Staff were generally OK - some of the dining room staff weren't very helpful/friendly. Free Internet in the lobby was slow and intermittent at times. Lovely large pool, kept very clean. No real complaints and would stay here again. The beach isn't great - wouldn't recommend staying here if you want a lovely beach. It's dirty and worn out buildings. Some renovations at this hotel also going on. Location is OK, but without your own transport, it's not the most convenient. (We hired a car, so it was no problem). A supermarket (Tesco Lotus) is 1.5km away, with other shops and restaurants also in the area. Local taxis are always waiting outside the hotel eager for business! Tour desk at hotel arranged day tour for us which worked fine. Good range of cable TV channels in the room.

Amora disappointmentPosted Aug 8, 2012
Pros: Breakfast staff, followoing a swim each morning which is my ritual the friendly mob at breakfast was a pleasing way to kick off the day.
Cons: Front office and management
Location: Nice and quiet
This was our third visit to the Amora Beach Resort in Phuket, the room was pleasing the bed rock hard, servicing of the room was very good in regard to changing of sheets and new towels both bathroom and beach on request. The service from the staff at the breakfast restaurant was exceptional as was the pool staff. The front office staff left a lot to comprehend, very negative on local market trips as advertised as an outing which we had used previously. The major upset was that the hotel was approx. 30% in capacity and when we requested a late check out were told that this would be at additional cost, after three visits and this holiday being for 18 nights found this very disappointing as result we would not recommend to others or be returning ourselves.

Nice stayPosted Jun 21, 2012
Pros: Favorite things breakfast and the pool
Cons: No free Internet and the extremely hard bed
Location: 1st time to Phuket. You have to get a taxi to go everywhere. Probably 3/4hr to Phuket town and possibly to Patong. Good to just relax.
Arrived after 10:00pm. Check easy the girls behind the desk were inviting and friendly. We were given 'freezing' cold towels to cool off and a juice. They upgraded us to a deluxe room free of charge. the room was large and spacious. Tiled floors, king bed, large bathroom, writing desk, cupboard space, TV with 90 stations mostly Thai but a reasonable amount of English shows and to my husband's delight the Golf Channel, two single chairs with a coffee table, small verandah overlooking the pool and plenty of room to move around. If booking ask for a ground floor room as you just walk off verandah straight into the pool, so convenient. The bathroom was clean but being white the grouting did need some attention. We ordered off the room service menu the dearest item was tenderloin steak 490ba but 10% service charge and 7% tax has to be added on to bill. Breakfast included Thai foods such as noodles and fried rice, seasonal fruits, French toast, eggs, cereal, sausages, rissoles, ham, tomatoes etc you wouldn't go hungry. The pool is magnificent and extremely clean. There is also a pool side bar. No free Internet. You can purchase 1, 3 or 7 days. 3 days cost 590ba approx $20AUD. The resort has a tour desk to go to patong beach or Phuket town costs 350ba round trip and leaves several times a day. Staff helpful and rooms services well each day. Russians must love this place they are everywhere.

Cheap and cheerfulPosted Jun 6, 2012 on Hotels.com
It was ok. Room a bit musty and breakfast sucked but it's convienently close to the airport. The beach is nice and there are plenty of Thai restaurants no more than 15mins walk or cab ride away.

Our favourite spotPosted Dec 7, 2011
Location: Bang Tao beach - beautiful
We have stayed here 6 times over the past 10yrs. Although the hotel is starting to look a little tired from the outside we still feel it represents excellent value for money. Located right on the beach it also has loads of lovely grassed areas and two pools. Although almost full on this occassion it still did not feel busy, unlike neighbouring hotels which in comparison looked crowded, loud and too busy. Not 5 star but this is reflected in the very reasonable room rates. Staff are very friendly and professional, rooms spacious and all with either pool or garden views.

AmoraPosted Sep 2, 2011 on Hotels.com
Monsoon season so the staff did their best keeping the beach clean but no swimming with the debris. Pool was good and some dishes on the menu were surprisingly good. !st time to Phuuket so hard to compare to another Phuket resort. Phantasea show was better than expected.
