"Nice Hotel, Best food and friendly staff"
We stayed two weeks at this resort.We loved most of the thing about it except the bed felt quite lumpy and the bath tub was not scrub once during our whole two weeks stay. For pure relaxation I would recommend this resort. The hotel staff's were polite and helpful. Best thing about the resort has to be the quality of their food.

"Happily surprised"
I had read lots of bad reviews about this hotel so I was really worried about staying here, we went over for a friends wedding and this was the hotel picked for everyone to stay at. By no means is it a 4 or 5 star hotel, it provides the basic requirements. The rooms are dated but clean, the wood ledge that the mattress is on is extremely slippery, so be careful. I stayed in a deluxe seaview room and the view was exceptional, the room however basic, the fridge worked extremely well, the aircon was fantastic, the bathroom was simple but functional, they provided some basic toiletries like razor, toothbrushes and soap, there is a shampoo and soap dispenser in the shower but no conditioner. The main pool was lovely to swim around however shuts at 6pm as they do dinner service in there, you can swim in the other pools until 10pm. I had a massage and a thai cooling scrub at the spa and they were both really good, I got a 2 for 1 deal so only paid 2000b for both. They run really good specials during the middle of the day, you just need to book before 12. The hotel is far from Patong and the shuttles don't start until 11.30 to Patong and 11 to kamala, the first shuttle back is 8pm from Patong, it will cost you 500b minimum for a taxi back, if there is more than 5 of you it is 100b per person, it is the same price for a taxi as a tuk tuk, so get a taxi as it has aircon! The staff were okay, the bar staff are extremely slow, reception were good. Breakfast is basic but ok.

Hotel and it's staff was lovely. Hotel located on a hill, if you have trouble walking uphill...no worries...someone on hand to drive you up to the entrance near your room at all times, all you have to do is ask! Room service always available and thai food on the menu at hotel was excellent.

"Dirty hotel with outdated facilities"
This hotel is at best 2 stars. The rooms are barely cleaned. There was an old piece of toast under the curtains and toothpaste (from long ago) smeared over the mirror. The breakfasts comprised tinned sausages and stale bread. We ate out of the hotel as breakfasts were appalling. Staff neither know nor care that you are staying at the hotel!

"Lovely position away from the noise"
My adult daughter and I chose the Aquamarine because it was in a quiet position away from the bustle and commotion of Patong. We wanted a place to relax and not a western type of hotel. The beds are very hard but the staff put a topper on it to help. The staff make the hotel, friendly and always wanting to help. The down side to the hotel is the food is limited and not inexpensive, as it is Kamala Beach plus the distance to Kamala. They do run the shuttle service which is great but may be not quite often enough especially at night. The walk in to Kamala Beach is something we would not attempt, no footpaths or safe walking paths. Patong is about 30 minutes and Phuket Town 45 minutes away by cab. On our last day we were unable to get a late check out but reception did organise for us to use a room for a shower closer to our flight time, this was fantastic.

"Hotel Stay Aqua Marine"
The staff are very polite and pleasant, however lack training and are probably short staffed. The hotel is old and really needs renovation, much of the timber structures and paint work show signs of age and rot. The bed was so hard and old that the springs pocked through. The location is just a bit to far to walk to town and the site is hilly so be prepared to walk alot. I spend on average 70 -90 days a year in hotels and would classify this hotel as three star. The food was ok and reasonable priced.

"Lovely views, traditional Thai decor"
We returned to this resort 10 years after our honeymoon there. The staff are very welcoming and accommodated our early check in and late check out. Our room was ready and they had even made a welcome back message for our bed. We stayed in a seaview Thai villa and the view was beautiful. The room was a bit run down - but clean and spacious. We had terrific time. The pool and swim up bar were great and just as we remembered. The café food was good. The staff helped us book our activities (Elephant ride, dinner boat cruise and Simon Caberet) and post mail home. There are a lot of stairs at this resort and a steep road to access the villas/rooms - but you wouldn't have the amazing views if it was on one level and they were always happy to drive us up the hill in the buggy. It was a relaxing and fun holiday - just hat we needed.

"Pay attention to the reviews before you book"
Yes it is close to the beach , but you cant swim in this beach. you have to travel into Kamala to swim. Kamala is not really walking distance,and the hills are too challenging. The hotel offers a free shuttle but they don't start till 11.00 am so your day is already half done before you start. The taxis want to charge you ridiculous prices so you are in a jamb. "Pay or Wait". The dinning restaurant offers very ordinary food mostly precooked, and so expensive, so most of the time we were looking to get to other places. I stayed here for 2 weeks and as you would imagine the costs become an annoying expense that added a bad taste to the stay. There is only 1, 10 seat free shuttle that runs to and from to Patong every two hours and Kamala every two hours. Its a "first in first serve" service so if you miss out you are stuck there they wont run a second shuttle.Then the taxi drivers hold out on big fairs.They know you have no choice or you have to stay in the hotel. The place is comfortable and the staff are friendly and polite. The food at the breakfast buffet was nice and fresh. but be wary before booking its too far out and its not much fun for family. It may suit younger people who can hire motorbikes. or car

"Great Location, lovely views."
Nice infinity pool, easy walk to Kamala Beach where there are great shops (especially if you want Tailors), and lots of great restaurants right on the beach at Kamala. We were upgraded to a sea view room as our room wasn't ready on arrival, and this was a great bonus, tremendous views! Great free shuttle into Patong Beach. Breakfast buffet was OK... lots of food choices. And the gym at the hotel was good. It was a steep walk up to our room with a view, but we are very active so this wasn't a problem, they did have golf carts to take others up. All and all it was good, the staff were very nice and helpful. The only downside was the bed wasn't very comfortable.

"Great view but beach very disappointing"
We were surprised by the busloads of tour groups arriving at all hours of the day and night, often apparently only staying one night. This put great pressure on the breakfast buffet and the tour visitors had different ideas of cleanliness- one lady instructing her son to urinate in the swimming pool, when he was standing poolside about 10 yards from a toilet and another who thought it a good idea to wash his sandals in the pool. The villa was quiet and the view over the sea was great, but when the tide was out there was a gauntlet of sand and then rocks in the sea as far as the eye could see. The staff was lovely but the food mediocre. A trip to the nearest town-Patong (Hell on earth) took between 20 minutes and 60 minutes by taxi, dependent on the traffic. We will not be returning to this area again and it is a mystery why the Hyatt and Novotel have built huge hotels nearby.

"Great Hotel"
The hotel was very good overall - clean and comfortable room although the bathroom is a little dark. Location was good - its a 10 min walk to the main beach for swimming, the local restaurants / cafes / bars and the main road if you want to get some good street food. Buffet breakfast was good - although its the same every day - with a possible slight variation betweek chicken sausage or pork sausage. However the grounds are lovely and it has 3 pools although could do with more loungers. Overall a very good hotel and one i would recommend.

It was amazing but there is only a timetable shuttle to the beach at 11, 1, 3, and 5 it is a bit annoying sometimes having to wait for the shuttle. There are three pools at the hotel but they are all quite small and not much seating area. For us it was fine as it wasn't too busy when we went but when busy it may be hard to get a seat.

For the price there are other more brilliant hotels in phuket. The single USP of the hotel is the supreme view of the sea that you get . Besides the bathroom is old fashioned and rooms basic. Food is good but need a major revamp . They don't even have a good espresso to serve. However the shuttle service and staff were brilliant.

"Nice view but very disappointing services!"
The hotel is generally dated and overrun by large packaged tourist groups. Bathtube is old and very moldy... Breakfast was disappointing too. First day arrived at the hotel, I found we given used coffee cup and uncleaned teaspoons in our room, very disappointed. We didnt even get these in our backpacker days . I took them to the management and asked them to exchange for clean sets. But after 35 minutes, nothing happened. I called the room services and requested for clean sets, they hung up on me before I finished up my sentence....!!!! Next day we tried to book a tour, guess what they were too busy talking to each other and ignored us, But thanks to that we found a better, cheaper tour somewhere else in town. For the hotel management, most of us worked hard and saved a bit of money for a holiday, we really do not deserve this type of treatments. Try to see us a person not just a walking legal tenders. Tourists do derserve a little bit of respect and care, no matter where they come from!!!

The hotel as a property is situated on the quieter side of the Phuket town on Kamala beach, its a perfect location for those who want to stay away from the glam-sham of Patong. when you are back from having fun.. !! But if you like to stay where the party is on.. chose a different hotel.. on the Patong Beach or somewhere else... Njoy the suns and the beaches of Phuket town...!!

"Great hotel"
This hotel was our third hotel we stayed at in Thailand and did not disappoint. They upgraded our room for free, gave us cool cloths and lemon grass tea upon arrival. The hotel has 3 great pools, the room air conditioners were amazing and the views were great too. The free breakfast didn't change much, but was good. Other meals at the hotel were a expensive, North American prices. The tenderloin steak rivalled anything you could get in North America and I definitely recommend $30. Shuttles to Kamala beach were convenient and to Patong once a day. They do want you to stay and spend your $ at the hotel though. Not much of a tour desk, no scuba available and many other tours we knew of they couldn't arrange, but phoned if you had the numbers. All I all great hotel, enjoy
