We stayed at the Marina Beach for 8 nights in early February 2015. We booked the stay through Booking.com which I mention only because without their intervention we may have been forced to pay or an extra night. We had changed our booking to arrive a day later than originally planned which was all ok by the hotel at the... More

Was in a premium bungalow at 1500 baht per night. Room was spacious, bed comfortable, air conditioner great, TV old but working ok and bathroom/shower satisfactory. A description of premium was a stretch ! Used the restaurant once but many more options outside. Best of all was that it was metres from the beach and a short walk to shops,... More

My room was spacious and the bathroom was nice, but a room is all to expect here. Nothing going on to justify the word "resort." No restaurant, nothing going on. The wifi didn't work most of the time. Fine for a short stay but a little pricey for what you get I think.

We stayed here one night and had no problems whatsoever. I read reviews about theft at the hotel but we didn't encounter anything like that. Ideal short stopover in a good location. Rooms pretty basic but for the price we didn't complain. Taxi 370bhat from airport & can book boat transfers for 450bhat with pick up from hotel. Our stay... More

From the moment we started checking in, the two front desk staff acted suspicious. The lady would only allow us to pay cash on arrival, requested us to sign a blank invoice (including passport number) and could not explain what it was for. After I paid cash, they were quick to show us the room. I requested a receipt which... More

I stayed here with a group of friends in late March 2013. They rooms were neat, the bed large but very hard. Hard beds suit some but not others. The bathrooms were a bit of a disappointment. A shower screen would have been nice and it’s not nice to have a toilet with a shower. The WiFi was very slow... More

Nice rooms, cleaned everyday, good little beach bar to drink at. Net cafe at the entrance organized activities had excellent service and gave great deals. Great value for money. I like hard beds so this wasn't a problem for me at all, others may not like it.

Great bungalows right next to the beach. Rooms all have balcony and are well maintained. Right next to the walking street. Motorbikes can be parked just a few meters from the bungalows. Family friendly, no russians.

The room is decent for the price, clean bed and bathroom. We stay in a standard room with no beach view, but rooftop views. We do not recommend to use laundry service, which is done by third party, we got our laundry back with yellow stains and a dirty t-shirt. The hotel paid for the damages though. There is additional...
