    Treat yourself -- you deserve it

    This is in a good location. Take a daily walk to town and back up the hill to the hotel for good exercise. The pool is great with many relaxing lounge chairs, including some that are in the water, which I enjoyed. The staff was helpful and attentive. They made a mistake on my room service bill. I changed my mind when I ordered, but they charged me for both dishes. The front desk worker deleted one of the dishes without a problem. I recommend that you get receipts, though. I was lucky that they believed me.

    Beautiful setting and lovely pool. Decor is elegant and staff very helpful. Too bad the rooftop bar was shut due to Covid.

    Worst hotel I’ve ever stayed at

    this is a motel pretending to be 5* External rooms no internal space Located by open sewer room had shanty view. Was told not to use balcony due to mosquitoes. Soiled sheets and towels, dirty lobby (soiled cotton bud on floor whole time) this during covid crisis. Internet patchy and doesn’t work properly. Pool dirty, lots of leaves, full of drunk people playing rugby all loungers in the water loud and not relaxing at all. Local area dump. Open sewers, unhygienic restaurants and bars. Shops very expensive paid £20 for ritz crackers, cheese and a coke Staff unhelpful rude made us pay deposit for room even though we payed in advance and tried to keep for 2 weeks after check out citing banking clearance. After one night we left and returned to Bangkok. Staff tried to make us sign a waiver before we left (we refused) taxi they booked did not arrive and when it did was twice cost of one from airport Would recommend staying elsewhere. After our experience I will never stay in another sofitel again

    Great hotel. The chef is a comedian

    We loved the room, the service, the friendly staff and the pool looked great although we were out and about and only used it for an hour. We were so disappointed with the food at this hotel though! We had dinner on the roof top the first night and the food was laughable we sent two dishes back it was just too disappointing. Then we tried to order some things room service and it was just as bad. We were essentially forced to eat elsewhere as the restaurant there was rubbish and you get much better food on the street. Disappointing when you want to stay at the hotel, relax and just enjoy the food! We think the chef might have been a child who was just playing around in the kitchen 😂

    The pool bartenders could not make a proper cocktail, awful tasting drinks and constantly making incorrect drinks!! The breakfast was disappointing, the hot food was never even warm and dirty dishes not cleared. The worst was a burger that was absolutely horrible!! The burger was a special that week at the pool and it was not even meat!! It was brown gristle and cold! It was not edible!! HORRIBLE burger!! You would think a 5* Resort could make proper drinks and serve edible food!! We will NEVER stay at the Avista Grande again!! Last year we stayed at The Horizon Karon and it was perfect!! We thought we would try the Avista Grande, what a mistake!!

    The food situation isn´t good. You have to provide half board when ist booked and have basics products (chips & basic iceceam) in stock when you describe yourself as family hotel / restaurant. The Staff in the pool area is stunning and mega friendly. The property is very looked after.

    Loved our stay at the Avista Grande. Think there could be more pool lounges as people hoard them from early morning for the whole day. Breakfast was ok but we preferred cheaper local food for 1/10th of the price. Drinks are pricey (ok in happy hour though) and are strong & delicious, the boys at the pool bar are awesome. We had a beautiful stay for our honeymoon.
