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,

My son's mouth was wide open when he saw the room! He was very pleased with it. I had booked a 2 bed pool villa.
The room was big and spacious with our own pool and a view of the sea. Perfect for some family R&R.
The one and only restaurant was ok, not really authentic but the service from the staff were really attentive.
The only downside of the resort is that it's far away from any shops, we needed to get a few snacks for the children and my husband rode on a bike provided from the resort...it took him 30 minutes.
I would highly recommend the hotel if you are after some quiet R&R but if you need something with a bit more action and buzz I would recommend staying closer to Patong.

I had a short stay and was upgraded, the staff were lovely and it would have been a nice place to hang out, a lot smaller than the Dusit Thani where we had been staying previously. I assume it would be quieter around the pool, the elephant fountains were nice.
I love the proximity of the hotel to the beach. It's very convenient for my family as I have 2 young kids, I could just whisk them between the hotel, swimming pool and beach within a few steps. The beach strip is relatively clean with well maintained beach chairs. Right inside the hotel is a 7-11, which is really convenient for us to get snacks and drinks.
However, I felt that the room was a little small for my liking and the beds a bit hard. it also lacks a bath tub which my boys love to play in.
Overall, it was a slightly better than average stay as I would credit the convenience access to the beach.

The hotel staff (Boyy) was very helpful and friendly. Even before we arrived he helped us arrange things for when we arrived such as car pick up service from the airport, renting bbq, transport to Layan beach etc...
The villa was newly refurbished and felt like we were the first group to stay at villa 11 because we smelt freshly renovated villa.
Everything was new and fresh however, it contained problems such as sewage, there was a problem with toilet flushing in one of the bedrooms, master shower had blockage took a long time for the water to go and water was everywhere after shower and the kitchen sink was blocked. The staff were very helpful and helped unblock nearly every day of our stay. The villa needs to look into fixing this problem as it was very annoying for us.
Overall, I would definitely recommend the villa due to the service from the staff there. There were a few beaches nearby and convenient if you had a car. It's away from the hustle and bustle of the Patong town centre. They do however need to fix plumbing problems to ensure customers' stay more at ease.
