Me and my friend stayed in Aquamarine for 3 nights for a getaway from the busy Singapore life. We chose this hotel based on many websites and indeed these reviews recommending it and saying it was great value for money - And they were right!
Our room was beautiful with lovely decoration and very warm feel. The beds were hard but that is how both of us liked them so this wasn't a problem for us. The bathroom was particularly nice with a sunken bath and very nicely decorated also. The room overall was very clean and every day of our stay it was kept up that way too.
One negative i would say about that room is that we payed extra to get a sea view room and although it was a sea view, it was barely a sea view. We had to look past many trees and the pool etc and then you could see the sea. Although this was only a small gripe and from the looks of the rest of the hotel most of the rooms would have a much better view of the sea.
The hotel staff were extremely welcoming and friendly and everyone we met wanted to help and go out of their way to make your stay feel special.
The hotels pools were nice and quiet through the day giving us perfect time to relax and have the poolside to ourselves. There was no fighting for sunbeds like in some hotels either. They have three separate pool areas so you are guaranteed that one of these is going to be a little quieter if you would just like a relaxing, peaceful dip.
The hotel offered shuttle services down to Kammala several times a day which was really handy as the hotel is a little out of walking distance...especially in the heat and with the hills. The shuttle was punctual and very comfortable. They also offer shuttles to Patong but we did not use this service as we were staying in Patong after our stay.
The breakfast was delicious and offered a variety of different types of food to suit all tastes, cultures and nationalities.
I would say that if you are looking for a hotel with a nightlife or an atmosphere at night then when we stayed here there wasn't much of one. This suited us fine as we just wanted to relax in the room and chill out but if you would like some entertainment or a lively bar then go stay down in the resort because you wont get that here.
Overall, we both loved our time in this hotel. It was a peaceful, luxurious environment to escape from everything, whilst being not to far away from the attractions and beaches of Kammala and Patong. Would recommend to a couple, or anyone wanting to escape and relax.
