“terrific place, friendly staff”
Reviewed 15 May 2011

We were a bit apprehensive, having booked an 8 night stay, after vreading a few negative reviews.
They couldnt have been farther from the truth!, Resort certainly has the "wow" factor..as soon as you see the view through the reception/lobby area..
Staff were very friendly , helpful and always had a smile .
As for the location, was far enough, for us to be pieceful and quite[ just how we like it]
If you want beachside, there are plenty of other places to choose from.
As far as the steep drive, Staff will pick you up and drop you at your door, just ask.!
So, as for the few who did have issues with Aquamarine, maybe you should stay Home and annoy your neighbours...we had a great time.

We found Aquamarine to be excellent. Steep, but very clean, Huge bed, daily room service, balcony overlooking the sea, top international breakfast every day. free beach shuttles all day. Exceedingly friendly staff, except for one of the aforementioned pool guys, who was so grumpy and rude we laughed our arses off every time we saw him.
It is quiet, peaceful and only a few minutes by shuttle bus or very cheap rental motor scooter from Kamala Beach & not far from crazy Patong..
The bar/restaurant on the beach across the road offers beer, wine, excellent whole fish and a very cute monkey named "Do'oh" who delights in jumping all over everyone.

Room Tip: High enough to see over the roofs but not too high

It's an easy walk (downhill) in to town although there is really no reason to go there. The hotel has a good pool with a view and a bar, the restaurant is okay, but not great and the staff will do their best to meet all your needs. The rooms are really nice; an Asian feel with all the amenities. It's quiet and far enough away from the nasty beach and nothing town that you can forget they are even there. A great place to rest up between trips to the islands.

this hotel was nice yes it is on a steep hill but the view is great you see the ocean. its near kamala beach and the beach is really nice and is cleaner and quieter then patong beach. they have a shuttle that goes from the hotel to kamala beach every hour whichs is really convienent and they pick you up from the beach every hour if you miss the shuttle the cab/taxi back is 200 bahts. they drop you off in patong 3 times a day you have to cab/taxi it back to the hotel which is 400 bahts. the food is k at the hotel. but if you do end up leaving there is a great resturant called fino its on the beach where the shuttle drops you off great great great food. for tours if you want to get them from the hotel they are good similar deals are available from kamala beach as well. where they drop you off there is a 711 and across from that is a great tour lady. she gives great deals. the rooms at the hotels are nice. i went during the low season and it was great. the spa is great it is a bit pricey but its worth every baht. if you go down to the beach or patong similar services are avaiable but the atmosphere at the spa at the hotel is great they really know what there doing and give a hard massage. i recommand that everyone do to is fantasea, elephant trekking, the shooting range was good, have to see the temples, big buddha, phi phi islands and james bond island. for the island tours its worth going on the speed boats then on the bigger boats. by the end of the tour you just wanna go home and the sooner the better from how i feel. the night life is good but i didnt really go and enjoy at night i was usually to tired. i give this hotel a 4.5 out of 5 no hotel can be perfect. the breakfast buffet is good yes it is the same food everyday but hey what else can you expect. oh and the hotel is not on the beach it is close to the beach.

Room Tip: the sea view is worth the extra money.

Calm, clean, beutiful resort. Pools are excellent. View in the room is fantastic. But so many stairs maybe make your knees painful. Staffs are very kind but unprofessional. At my checkout time, I wait 1 hours because of so many package tourist. Breakfast is not bad but always same. Too far from patong, having a oneway shuttle 3times a day. But you cannot use that on your checkout day.

We stayed in the Aquamarine resort and villa during Songkran festival.
And we love this hotel.
The staff and management team all extremely pleasant and very efficient. The rooms are really spacious in thai environment style and very clean.The jungle view from our balcony was wonderful. The resort's spa retreat was great. Recommend it if you want more of a luxury friendly experience.

breakfast are served with same menu daily. The waiters and waitresses are bias towards Asians. They prefer to be more polite and friendly towards Europeans...very Unprofessional.
The steps all around are too high....too stressful for those with knee problem.
View is good. Area are cozy. Pools are sufficient.
