Marina is located right in the center of Lamai, walking distance to bars, restaurants. It is also beachfront and has 2 swimming pools. The bigger pool is much nicer. Rooms are clean and nice, quite value for money.

Staff is so unhelpful and some dont speak english at all. We requested a few things in the morning and could not get an answer from those morning staff. The only answer was to wait until 2pm so the manager can answer. Also they didnt change the towels frequently even after having cleaned the room, we always had to ask for it.

started when we arrived getting pushed to another nearby hotell as they say it was full eventho we had paid upfront.

thoose rooms had construction materials left over on the floors , bes was all black with dirt .

after 1 day we had our normal rooms we paid for after alot of arguing , the helpfullness is about 0 from the staff and all they can say is -im sorry eventho they sell a room even when fully booked.

restaurant at beach staff is horrible but the food is decent , pool was ok aswell .

simply stay away cause if you get into any problem here you will get NO help from this staff.

On the whole, it was simply OK.

Position: Centre of Lamai. Lamai has defiantly become a haven for sex tourists. It a bit seedy now.

The room: big enough but because the shower was badly built it never drained & we always had a wet floor. No enclosure to shower, water went everywhere but good hot water. Walls are this so it was pretty noisy. Balcony good size, with an excellent view of the room opposite. No sea views. Good sized safe.

The pool: This was my main gripe. The concrete in the pebbledash along the edge of on of the pools has all eroded. This caused some really bad cuts & scratches on out 2 year olds skin. I mean, it's really sharp so be careful.
The small pool was only half full of water.
Water was not very clear so assume the pumps & filters were not working properly.

The beach: the beach loungers have seen much better days. Covers all split with dirty foam coming out. This part of Lamai beach is littered with plastic, glass bottles & cigarette butts. The hotel does not clean thier section of beach like others do.

The restaurant did not appeal, so we did not use it.

For a quieter family holiday, there are much better places. We really didn't want to spend any time here.

Room Tip: Have a good look at the details before booking.

We stayed at this nice hotel by the beach and main street for 4 nights. Big and spaceious room and a nice balcony with a nice view. Clean and great value for money I must say. The only negative thing I can say about our room was that we were located on the third floor and there was not much preassure in the shower. The wifi worked in the lobby but in the room it was very very slow. Overall I'm very satisfied with our stay at this hotel.

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.
