My partner and I stayed at the Thai Villa room in the Aquamarine. It was a lovely villa facing out to the Andaman Sea. There was plenty of space and best of all they didn't fill up the fridge with mini bar items that we would never consume anyway.
The hotel was in a lovely location perched above Kamala Beach. There was a shuttle service to both Kamala Beach and Patong Beach, saving money on taxis. Taxis are absolutely extortionate in Phuket - charging 200 baht for a single trip from Kamala Beach back to the hotel and 400 baht for a single trip to or from Patong. Having the shuttle bus probably saved us about 2000 baht.
We also took advantage of the pools at the hotel - the swim up bar was a lot of fun. There is a happy hour at the swim up bar from 3-4pm every day and at the Horizon lounge happy hour is from 5-7pm and 10-11pm every day.
Breakfast was decent though there could have been more variety. The staff at breakfast were always friendly.
My main complaints were a) our key cards failed multiple times though thankfully someone would quickly give us a new key and b) there were two bellboys who positioned themselves in the room after bringing in our luggage on the first day and would not leave until they were given a tip. I want to emphasise that the rest of the staff were not like this and were very friendly, but the behaviour of these bellboys was quite disappointing. Even in the US, where tips are expected, I've had to chase after bellboys to give them their tips.
