Not a great hotel, however impressed with service
I was not happy with the hotel rooms and hoel layout. Also the deluxe rooms were not great.
I was happy with the service staff, smiling & friendly.
Please don't order anything from the tailor shop at the hotel, they just wasted our time and also did not deliver as per expectations.

Great hotel, friendly staff, great location!
Great view, shuttle buses to and from Patong 3 times daily, restaraunt and massages just across the road
After reading some other reviews I was hesitant about stay here. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by the most welcoming staff and check in was quick and simple. The hotel sits high on a hill so depending on what room you stay in, you might be required to walk up and down a couple of hills/stairs, however the hotel does provide a golf buggy service for you, you would just need to buzz the bell hop when required.
The room had a lovely view of the sea and was clean. The air con could be a little loud at night, but just turn it to low, it kept us cool all night long! Kamala Beach was a 10 min walk away, however the hotel had shuttle buses every 2 hours to and from the beach. If you think that its a little far from Patong, no worries, the hotel provided a free shuttle to and from Patong 3 times a day and if you want to stay out at night its only baht back
Happy hour was 5:15 til 7:15 and again from 10:15 til 11:15, the bar man was great always welcoming and always wearing a smile! All the other staff, breakfast crew, bellboys, reception staff and all other staff did nothing but make our stay perfect!
We loved this hotel and will definitely stay again!
There is a lovely restaurant across the road from the hotel, called Poo Maas, which you can access from the stairs that go down past the hotel spa, all dishes are baht and are yummy! Try the Thai fish cakes and the Thai omelettes you won't be disappointed! They also offer massages during the day which are also fantastic and only baht.

Lovely traditional and comfortable
I found the hotel had all the neccesarry things that any traveller really need. Situated in a quiet area. Good value compared to the nearby hotels. Staff was friendly and smiling. Mention that you may want to check in another guest as they may charge you if you do not specify at check in.

expensive and not worth it
I don't think it is worth it.
There is small snake on our balcony and we have feedback to the hotel staff who brought us to the room and saw the snake too. He mentined that he will get someone to catch it but for the 2 nights there were nothing being done.
Thus we just stick with it and try to avoid opening the window which lead to the balcony.
The bathtub was also spoilt and we can not enjoy the jaccuzzi at first but was fixed after our second call.
The fruits that they served us upon our arrival is too ripe and the bunch of banana were full with black spots on it already. I wonder why they still serve us with the fruits with this kind of condition.
The day before, we stayed in another apartment previously their free flow of banana at their lobby is so appealing unlike this villa which caused me a bomb.
We hang the house keeping needed notice on our door and there is still no one to tidy up the room, we have to make the extra effort to call for housekeeping.
Please do not expect the Aquamarine Villa to be comparable to Bali villa,with really a huge pools with more that 2 to 3 room.
It is just like normal hotel room maybe slightly bigger only.
However, i was not comfortable with their service and a snake staying with us.
There is also stain on the sofa which they don't bother to change before we checked in to the villa with the amount that I had paid.

Great Resort, would definately return
Size of room for a tripple, view over the bay, friendly staff
Lovely resort - just what you want in phuket. The spa was fantastic and thats not always the case at resorts, breakfast was good and the layout of the resort was beautiful.
Rock Fish just down the road from the resort - a must do.

nice hotel with great stuff
quite, lovely stuff, very clean
the hotel is located not here and not here, meaning, between the 2 beaches. taxi cost alot so....
there are free taxi from the hotel but on a specific times and not too late, moreover you will need to book it in advanced in order to have a place on car.
breakfast re very good.
too many lights were broken at room so for example i couldn't't read next to bed.

nice hotel with good view
great sea view in room, nice lobby and swimming pool
the hotel is in kind of old style but lovely, if the cleanliness improved, it would be perfect.

hotel on a hill with a beautiful view over the sea
tasteful decor, great service, views, swimming pools
lovely weekend stay at Aquamarine - loved the room with the elevated floor area + mattress (Thai bed), bathroom shutters into the room, tasteful decorations, attention to detail, great swimming pools with the view over the sea!
Bathroom might use a little renovation, gym is almost non-existent (4 machines), but have table tennis!
Area is perfect for those seeking some quiet time, shuttle service is a big plus - free transportation to Karon beach for swimming and to Patong for nightlife and shopping.
Karon is very quiet - no bugging vendors, water is clean & nice temperature (rainy season - a bit wavy and brownish because of sand), safe to swim, not many tourists, mostly families, chairs are cheaper than other beaches (80 THB). 2 restaurants, 1 massage on the beach. Thai staff on the beach is nice, not rude like in Patong.
