We were told that our originally booked hotel was overbooked, and so in a hurry I had to get online and book a new hotel the day before our planned arrival. This was the day before Christmas, and most of the hotels were either full over extremely overpriced. However, Aquamarine had rooms available, and the rate was high, but not too out of our budget.
It is marked as a 4 star hotel, but I'd say 3+ at most. We had a Deluxe Sea View room. The vie was good, we had a room high up.
Room was decorated in typical Thai style. Dark wooden furniture etc.
The room was alright, but the hotel is aging and it shows. It is in need of renovation. The reception area was nice and welcoming, great views over the bay, but the whole hotel had a kind of 80's feel to it... They need to do something. It was always clean and nice, but definately not up to 4 star quality, especially for being in Thailand.
They have shuttle service to the beach, and they provide towels. They have 3 pools, but we didn't use them. Never seemed crowded though, probably because most guests used the beach instead in Kamala.
Breakfast was good, nice selection, and with chefs to prepare your egg/omelette etc.
Guests at the hotel was mainly Scandinavian, Australian and Korean as far as I could see.
Will not stay here again. good for a budget traveller, but don't expect 4-star level hotel.
All staff were very friendly and welcoming, and that helped.
