My Husband and I have just returned from a 6 night stay at the Aquamarine Resort.
Our first impression of the Resort was that it was very outdated but clean nevertheless. Check in went smoothly and we had no issues.
When we got to our room again first impression was that it was dated but clean. The beds are so uncomfortable and so hard it was sleeping on the floor! The view from the delux ocean view room is great.
We ate at the restaurants only because the distance to Patong is about 10-15 minutes by taxi or tuk-tuk (about AU$12). The food was ok nothing fantastic and as expected with any Resort expensive. The staff at the restaurants were friendly however the bar and pool staff were very unhelpful, slow and rude. I would suggest saving time and money by going to the 7/11 down the road and buying beers there, much quicker and cheaper (we did this and ended up getting 24 beers for a little under AU$20 .
Like most people have mentioned previously, the Resort is located on quite a steep hill so if you have any difficulties with fitness or injury do not even consider this Resort.
The Resort does offer shuttle bus into Patong 3 times a day but you have to find your own way back (we paid about 400bht one way which seemed to be the going rate). But you do have to book 1 day ahead to be guaranteed a seat.
All in all the Resort is cheap, clean and has great views BUT some of the staff are rude, it is outdated and the beds are rock hard. Like anything though you really do get what you pay for though but we won't be returning.
