Cosy little spot off away from the main drag

Everything about this place is very pleasant. Room size is great, towels are available to take to the beach, plenty of transport options around too.
While the main strip is within walking distance, it's not always a comfortable walk in the heat of the day.
Note - while they say breakfast is served until 10.30, it isn't really replenished, so you still have to get there early to get anything.

Booked in here for 5 nights, ferry over from Phuket. The hotel is not very big and the staff are great, always happy to help. Breakfast is ok, omelettes are the best but there is a selection of Thai food available. The pools are good, one with pool rooms and a general pool. This has a big water slide which is great for kids, but there have been lots of mum and dads using it too. Not far from the beach, short 10 minute walk to both beaches. AoNang is a very nice pkace and after years of just Phuket i will be coming back here again. Recommend the Viva hotel. Good value, clean and friendly.

I recently stayed at the Aonang Viva Resort in Krabi, and would describe this accommodation as pretty average...
Reception staff were very pleasant upon arrival, and initial thought were that resort and rooms were clean and well presented...
The downsides were that the pool area is far too small for the amount of rooms, and only offers 14 sun beds... We were told that the pool opened at 08:00, however there were people ‘claiming’ sun beds from as early as 07:15....This issue needs to be better managed, or pool opening hours should not be set at a time, if guests are allowed to use before the designated time!
We booked a superior room, which has a nice big king size bed... however it didn’t have king size bed sheets, and the bedding was made up of 2 standard size bed sheets which did not lead to comfortable sleeping.. The towels provided were also really dated and poor quality...
Plus points were....good breakfast selection offered, and a nice touch in the superior/deluxe room was the beach bag, beach mat, and umbrella provided...
Final comment....think the hotel is a bit overpriced for what is on offer!
All a bit second rate

Room was OK, but bed uncomfortably hard and no drawer space at all and a fairly small wardrobe, meaning we were living out of our suitcases for a week. Towels provided had holes some days, and cleaning was a bit patchy, sometimes not happening until late afternoon. Location is good, and pretty quiet at night. Pool area is pleasant but very noisy as the sound of kids playing echoes a lot, and there are not enough loungers and pool towels for the room count. Breakfast was pretty poor most days. The guests are a very mixed bunch, and trying to cater for both European and Asian preferences results in limited choice for both audiences. Laundry service was very good - cheap and clothes back ironed next day. All in all, not great value for money.
Very Bad Staff

I was staying in this villa for 2 days. the rooms are good and clean but the staff is not trust worthy.
They stole my money from the room which was kept inside the bag.
I contacted them after two days. They said I gave the permission and stopped replying my mails. I asked them for CCTV footage but they are not responding.
If you guys plan to stay here please take care of your valuables. Though I don't recommend you.
