“The Amethyst - a quiet haven”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

Located on a side street within easy walking distance of the beach and nightlife, the Amethyst Residence was a quiet haven in lively Patong. The owner, Gary, provided advice and support on everything from snorkelling sites nearby to travel across the island and over to Phi Phi. Room décor was pleasing and the accommodation comfortable. The only minor drawback was that in my case the shower was an integral part of the washroom – so the floor could get a bit slippery.

Accommodation didn’t include breakfast, but eating facilities are nearby at the intersection to the side street. The APK Hotel cafeteria is on the SE corner – but I recommend the little place on the NE corner – where meals were a fraction of the price and the service friendly.

After the many positive reviews on TripAdvisor I was expecting better.

I found my room to be dirty, a simple 'rush job' clean with hair in the bathroom, dirty towels, etc. Main issue was broken shower head that could only be hand held, and hard to control water temp (more of general problem in most of Thai hotels).

However the free wifi was fast and the location is handy to Jungceylon and the Patong nightlife, while the staff were friendly.

I didn't give the hotel an opportunity to fix the problems as I only stayed 1 night and needed rest rather than testing complaint resolution skills. Just expected better.

I am sorry the guest did not complain about the condition of the room when first checking in, as the issue wouild have been addressed immediately. During this, our first high season since opening, we have been fully booked and on occassion have struggled a little bit to have all our rooms clean and ready for new guests checking in. I really question the 'dirty towels' comment and the broken/loose shower head has been fixed. There is no problem with water temperature control, it simply takes a minute or two for the hot water to come out but after that, there is never a problem with maintaining a constant temperature. All of the issues mentioned could have, and would have been addressed within minutes had the guest taken the time to call the front desk. I have also take steps to ensure that this situation will not happen again in the future, having rooms double-checked before new guests check in. We pride ourselves in working to maintain the good reputation that most of our previous guests have created for us.

I stayed in this hotel for a month from October until November while I was taking a course to teach English. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this hotel. The people at the desk were very pleasant and helped with absolutely everything that I asked for. The room was clean and a good size. It was not very loud as it is down a soi from the main road. The walk to the beach takes about 10 minutes and it is close to Jungceylon and Bangla Road. I will definitely be back at the Amethyst Residence.

Caution 1 - Smoking is prohibited. I am sure half the people won't like such a hotel.

Service ain't that great, not very friendly like other Thai hotels.

Great location though, hardly 5 mins from Bangla and 10 mins to the beach. Rooms are good, newly built, no elevator though. I stayed there for 2 days and than changed my hotel, all my friend were smokers.
