To start with, we were upgraded to a bigger room which came as a pleasant surprise! The room was *huge*, very clean and comfortable.
Phil (the owner) is one of the most helpful guys I've met. He drew a map for us to travel around and helped us with all the bookings (phi-phi island, fantasea, scuba diving) at decent rates. He has an answer for everything and goes out of his way so you have a memorable trip!
Beverly at the reception is a sweet Thai girl, who again is lively and helpful. My 5 year daughter made friends with her and wanted to spend all her time at the reception area.
Breakfast was good, a decent spread of Thai and continental stuff.
They have a library of book and dvds that you can take to the room. A small cafe that Phil and Jo (Phil's wife) run for a quick coffee/bite.
There are 2 buildings, one with the pool that has abt 4 floors (breakfast is served here) and the other with 2 floors, where the reception is. We were on 2nd floor in the reception building. There is no lift in this one, which means you need to take your luggage upstairs yourselves.
Also, this place is a little far away from the beach (about 10-15 mins on foot), so if you want to stay in the middle of action, you might get bored here. We had a car, so did not mind it.
All in all - Throughout our 5 day stay on the foreign land, we never felt away from home, thanks to everyone at Villareal Heights!
Phil, Jo and Beverly, incase you are reading this - A big thank you from us! :)
