Comfortable, clean, helpful and handy position
good value, great location and good tour desk
I picked R Mar because it had no negative reviews. It was quiet and in a great spot. Bangla Rd, Jungceylon, the beach, the paradise section, good restaurants and nightlife are all in walking distance. The pool was great and my room was spacious and well appointed. Quiet, efficient aircon! Great cocktails and lunch for pool service, breakfast adequate but ordinary. The girl at the Tour desk was very helpful. I priced several tours, Fantasea, rafting etc at other locations and her price was the same and she often managed to throw in extras such as free transport. Laundry shop at front gate was cheaper. Great value for money and will go back.

Great hotel, good guest friendly policy
Guest friendly, The Location, not to far from night life, quiet location, nice pool
Very good hotel. On arrival a refreshing cool drink at reception, which was very well received after a long journey. The hotel also offers either free mini bar or free internet which is a great idea, full points to R Mar Resort and Spa. Breakfast was very adequate, equal to any five star hotel I have stayed at and the hotel staff were very polite and helpful. The guest friendly policy of this resort, with no room fine is fantastic, I will now only support hotels like this in Phuket as I believe the policy of charging guests who have paid for two people an additional charge if you have a friend stay overnight is a complete rip off by other hotels in Phuket, another big tick for R Mar Resort and Spa. Overall a hotel that I will recommend to other people.

Lovely hotel and service with a smile
Property where you can breathe as compared to other hotels
Friendly staff always with a smile, best location to stay with a family as nightlife is always the heart of Phuket. Only the shortcut to beach is tricky and dirty rest location is central.

R Mar Resort and Spa
Location, price, breakfast, room
We booked our room here last minute and were beyond satisfied! The rooms are spacious, modern, clean, great AC and rain-style shower head. It is centrally located in the Patong Beach area, but is tucked away from the noise. The pool is nice, but we spent most of our time at the beach. It is a five minute walk and the only downfall to the hotel is the walk to the beach. It's through a back alleyway wherein the smell and the trash are a nose and eye sore. Also, the spa was average, especially for the price. Other than that though, our stay here was amazing! Oh and delicious breakfast with fresh omelets made to order.

The bathroom is not good, the bath tube is too hig
I like the location, inside of the street
When we checked-in, the receptionst asked me how many people check in,I said 4 but they were really impolite that find a staff to go to check , as a friend bring us there with a kid when we came back to resort in the same night, my friend with a kid came back to our room for staying for a while, one staff followed us and knocked our door to say, if the child stayed over night till next morning, we need to register for child and charge breakfast. I was so odd, as they won't stay with us for a night and should not follow us to ask this stupid question after I was in room with few minutes. I was so angry that they should not disturb customer like that. I feel staying a prison, they are always observe you. Between room you can hear someone talked and used the toilet. Over all I don't feel comfortable with this resort. Only the location is good.
