We stayed at Marina Villa for 10 nights and are very satisfied. The hotel is simple but has some very nice qualities and a very good price. The location is pefect being close to the beach and to the shopping street, while at the same time not being in a too busy and loud area. Our room was very nice and had AC, refrigerator and a safe. The balcony was great with a view over both the sea and in the other direction the mountains.
The hotel garden is nice with two pools and the restaurant is ok, with a great view of the beach and sea. The hotel also provides massage right by the beach in a very beautiful setting and good price. If you miss a breakfast buffet, which Marina Villa does not have, try the nearby hotel Lamai Wanta which serves it for 250 baht.
On the negative side, the wifi didn't work great. The connection was slow and disappeared completely from time to time. Also on the third floor, there was not much pressure in the shower. And our AC had to be rebooted every now and then to keep it working. The restaurant toilet was not fresh. It didn't always have paper and the soap was diluted with water during our entire stay. The hotel could not help us make a booking over the phone to a spa. It was fine, since there were travel agencies one minute away who could do that, but you would still expect your hotel to help you with these things.
Despite the shortcomings we were overall satisfied and think we got very good value for money.
