Quiet, clean hotel close to beach and nightlife.
Buffet had a wide wide variety, great swimming pool and close to the action.
Our 2 night stay was great. We "splurged" and paid $40 a night each (there were 2 of us). Great value for the price. Clean pool with tons of shade if needed. Can buy a variety of drinks from the pool man. Friendly guy who opens the door for you as you come and go. We took an airport minibus there which took about 45 minutes and had one pick us up as well as we were heading the Phuket ferry. Very friendly staff, we're able to print things for me at the front with no issues. You get the option of getting the wifi password or the free mini bar (which is 2 cans of Chang beer and 3 bottles of pop) . Worth choosing the minbar if you have unlocked phones with Thailand SIM cards like us. Extremely clean place and had no issues with AC at all. Even some swanky mood lighting for those of you bring around a lady, a boy, or a ladyboy.... You will not see the beach from this hotel but it is a 5 minute walk away. Didn't find the path but we also didn't look very hard. We just walked down bangla road every time we went to the beach (which is an experience in itself at night time). The location is great as it is right in Patong beach area and far enough away from crazy bangla road that there were no noise issues at all. If you are a lone traveler walking home in the middle of the night, the last few minutes are through a poorly lit alley type road. Not that there were any issues ever, just thought I would mention that. No restaurant in the hotel other than the great breakfast buffet, but there are 2 or 3 literally right outside the hotel gates. If you are looking for a secluded peaceful beach, then you will absolutely not find it in Patong, but the beach is so huge that the mass amounts of people don't seem too bad. You can get anywhere and do a wide variety of activities from this location. Overall I would absolutely stay here again.

Great location, bang for buck
Location, setting, decor
Negative point was a lot of leakage in the bathroom, floor was flooded with each shower

A paradise in hiding
Cleanliness, great staff & excellent room.
You would never expect to find this little oasis in the chaos that is Patong Beach. This was our 6th trip to the area & by far, R Mar Resort was our greatest find. Located very close to everything, including Bangla Rd, yet barely a noise was ever heard, other than the shower next door running (noisy pipes) We always do budget hotels & finish off the trip with upmarket & we will certainly be returning to the R Mar Resort!!!

Overall rounded stay
Close proximity to massage places and the main Bungla road
The rooms had everything we needed. However, the sound proofing was not great, when the next door neighbour was using the shower, we could hear it quite clearly. In some rooms, the structure of the bath was not thought too carefully, which meant overload of water on floor after showers/baths. However, the rooms were kept very clean, which is a bonus :) The staff are present at your need, but they are not the friendliest bunch, except the tour sales woman. She was great! Pools appear much grander in size in photos than in reality. When we went to the pool it wasn't' very busy, so that was enough for us. Breakfast is nor good or bad. It had all the elements, but obviously not the best breakfast buffet either.

Centralised located, Good and Bad
Centralised located, Average cleanliness , Friendly staffs
Good : Centralised location - minutes away from Patong beach, shopping mall, Patong night streets, restaurant and massages, recommended bike rental in front of hotel - cheap and good service! Bht 200 rent a bike for day! Breakfast Ok, change menu everyday. Friendly staffs.Spacious room. Bad : Same as other reviews, water basin was choked. Feedback to them but never fix. Bathtub cleanliness does not met my expectation, only use for shower. Overall good experience due to good location, satisfy breakfast and comfortable bed. Give the price we paid , I rate 7/10 due to water basin and bathtub cleanliness failed to complete my total relaxing holidays..

Will not go back again
friendly staff, nice swimming pool, comfy bed
Bathtub looks old and dirty. Shower head sprinkler is too spread out, coupled with poor design layout of the bathtub, the bath room floor is always flooded with water after each bath. The Sprinkler head next to the toilet bowl is difficult to use. Cotton buds are not replenished. We are allocated a room on the 3rd floor and there is no lift at all. Lots of mosquitoes in the balcony area. limited TV channels. Variety of breakfast is quite limited with lots of houseflies helping themselves to the salad section. Plus points: Friendly and helpful staffs, Huge & Comfortable bed, Nice swimming pool.

This is the worst hotel in my life
Nothing best
When we check out with our 6 month old infant and 2 year old child they claim us to pay 350 bath for missing toilet towel. at last we have to show our baggage that we don't take there towel. the staff was very rude.
