"relaxing and pleasant resort"
my 3 days stay in the club was relaxing and pleasant. the chum restaurant has excellent breakfast and dinner menu, from thai food, indian curries to continental menu they pretty decent mix. the ambience of resort is quite and relaxing. greenery sounds of chirping bird, courteous staff, proximity to beach and clean and safe atmosphere are the outstanding feature of the resort. beach though is little violent and location in north of island is far from the main action at patong and Phuket city, which implies expenses on transportation which could be high in private taxi is used, the shuttle of club though is a relief. notably food in club is cheap and stone throwaway grocery shop is another saver.
"Great for families"
After staying in the sister resort (opposite this vacation club), we decided to try the newer Anantara resort. It feels like a mini club med. With activities and kids club. Bicycles, kayaks, table tennis - enough to keep everyone occupied. The pool villa is awesome, equipped w modern amenities and furnished like a home. There are restaurants within the resort, however the food quality was really disappointing especially at THOSE prices. Anyway, there are enough eateries (local & western) right outside the resort and a small mini mart for our meal and drinks supplies. Note that to go to the beach, you will have to cross into their sister resort, which i very much preferred.
"Very peaceful stay！"
Just got back 2 days ago!! Very good pizza- must try. Do not expect the same facility quality as the hotel. No beach, no water sport, no SPA. Need to go cross the street to the Anatara Resort and enjoy these facilities. I stayed in the one-bedroom pool villa and it was very nice and spacious,but I would recommend the 2 bedroom villa because the private pool is also bigger.
"Just gets better"
Have now stayed several times over past 4 years- just seems to get better each time. It's just like coming home- the staff are so welcoming and no time is lost in settling in! AVC Phuket is just a short, safe drive from the airport. The resort is beautiful- esp the pool villas- ideal for families who want to 'be together' for their holiday but still have their own privacy. Rooms are well equipped for self catering, although no need for that as meals at the restaurant(and by the pool) are very reasonably priced with great variety/quality. The resort is beautifully maintained- the gardens are all well established now- and the staff are very friendly and well rehearsed in understanding their guests and being sensitive to their every need. There is a kids club and a teens club along with modern, well equipped gym, also many well maintained bikes of varying sizes and beautiful swimming pool. Throw away all those pre- conceived ideas of Phuket( mainly referring to the Patong area) and enjoy a great holiday in a beautiful resort!
"Great for families"
Just spent 10 days at this resort and had a thoroughly wonderful trip. Whilst I personally wouldn't call it a five star resort it is without doubt a fantastic place to take the family. The 2 bedroom pool villa was spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The service was great and all of the staff were exceptionally friendly. My 5 year old son tells me it's the best holiday he has ever been on, all of the staff knew him by name after a week and could not have made more of a fuss of him. The kids club is great, a wide range of daily activities and really lovely staff who looked after all the children and kept them entertained at all times. The pool area is also great for families/kids although the adults aren't left out with a swim up bar and hot tub area. Although the resort shares a beach with its sister hotel across the road and isn't a beach resort as such. A golf buggy to whisk you there is only a phone call away and we certainly didn't find it a hindrance. To sum up we'll go back with the kids, as a family resort it nails it as far as I am concerned. If I were planning a kid free long weekend with the wife however I'd probably look at other options in a similar price bracket. That's not a slight and I highly recommend this place, just trying to be clear as to where its strengths are.
