The Amata Grand is located a short walk from Bangla Road and the Patong Beach - far enough away so that it's not too noisy and busy but close enough to be able to walk to many places. The hotel is not a 5 star resort but facilities are adequate, new and clean.
We were located in a non-view room (that is, our juliet balcony was overlooking the hotel next door) with two large single beds, tv and bathroom. The beds are quite firm (which apparently is quite common in Thailand) but reasonably comfortable. The air conditioning is quite loud but you get used to the constant hum. The bathroom is fairly large and houses a toilet, shower and sink. The shower does not have a bund so you must shower carefully so that you don't completely flood the bathroom. It seems to be an interior design oversight - they clearly were going for aesthetics over practicality. Overall the rooms are modern, fairly spacious and clean. Wireless internet is available throughout the hotel.
There are 2 pools - one located at ground level and another on the roof. There is no shade available so don't forget your sunscreen. The pools do not have a swim up bar (as advertised by Ezystay) but are new, large and quite nice - the roof top pool is an infinity style and has a great view of Patong.
Buffet breakfast was included in the price, however, it was nothing too exciting. Word of note to the caffeine addicts - look elsewhere - the coffee is atrocious (Surprisingly the Coffee Club is a pretty good option - just down the road at JungCeylon).
The staff were absolutely lovely. Their English is pretty good and they are very helpful. Unfortunately for them we had some unlucky experiences, nevertheless, they were quick to sort out the issues and always did so with a smile. I added an extra star to this rating due to the staff friendliness, performance and response!
At the end of the day the Amata Grand Hotel was pretty good - if you're looking for luxury, look elsewhere but if you want location, value, cleanliness and friendliness then the Amata might be suitable for you.
