“Loved this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Next time we are in Thailand, I would stay here in a heartbeat. Staff is friendly, breakfast was amazing. The hotel room was nice and big, we had a pool access room. So we could step off our balcony into the pool.

Amazing property and excellent service. Only thing missing was the sunshine but not the hotel's fault!

The room was awesome and the swim out to pool was incredible. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious (mmmm chocolate crossiants and crepes!!and the soup was also a hit!)

Room Tip: rooms with pool swim out

Very nice hotel with outstanding price/quality ratio. It is my second time to this property in low season and each time my expectations are exceeed.

Very special thanks to Sea Bees Dive Shop (one of the offices is located on the territory of the hotel) and diving instructor Mr. Lars Pohlmann, naitive German with outstanding English-language skills and exceptional attitude to his job and customers.

Being certified PADI-diver, I could see Mr. Pohlmann's professionalism "in action", when he conducted several introductoruy courses with my 10-year-old son. I was impressed by his special attention to details to secure combination of safe dive (even in the pool) and pleasant experience. I would like to highly recommend Sea Bees Dive Shop in JW Marriott for divers with any level of diving experience and highly recommend Mr. Lars Pohlmann as very prtofessional diving instructor and easy-going and customer-oriented personality.
Sincerely, Pavel Lagov, Moscow, Russia

The hotel was beautiful! Staff were excellent! The room was clean and the Marriott's signature bedding and linen were pure luxury. I was truly well rested in the comfortable room, hotel grounds, and overall feel (culture) of the place. We went during off-peak season so there wasn't a crowd to contend over for facilities and services. It's definitely a place I will return to for rest. We were able to benefit from their superb groupon promotion.

this resort has all that one is looking for for a chilled out holiday, great food , great location, great service, very good rooms and the best pool one can experience.
it is just not too easy to reach being far from the airport and also has nothing near it as concerns shopping eating or entertainment so if you are looking for all of those this is not the place for you.
this is a place where you spend time with family and friends and loved ones in a very calm beautiful tranquil location and it provides you with great facilities for a relaxed vacation.
It has a great clean beach which is very very safe and fantastic sunset views, the choice of cuisines is vast and food to suit all palates, the restaurants are very well located and have a great ambiance, the negative is all seem to turn in very early and it does not offer any entertainment going into the night so that can get a bit boring so if one is looking for action packed evening this is not the place for you.

Room Tip: pool access rooms are great

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights in August 2013. The resort is gorgeous as are all the staff who all stop and warmly greet you. We stayed in room 1031 which was a perfect location to the pool, restaurants and beach but very private as we were the last room. We had pool access which is a must. Our days consisted of sleeping in until 10am, a sumptuous breakfast until 11am, getting clean beach towels then relaxing on the sun lounges for a couple of hours in the over 12 years area. Staff bring you Ice water to keep you hydrated throughout the day. A stroll along the beach to the right for a massage- 300 Baht for 1 hr, then a swim in the beach. Back to the room for a rest, drinks and snacks on the verandah then swim from our room to the pool bar for happy hour - cocktails around $700 Baht. Swim back to the room to get ready for dinner - note we didn't have lunch as breakfast is so fantastic with so many options we were too full. Then dinner in either the resort restaurants which are all recommended as excellent 5 star dining experiences or a romantic stroll up the beach to the right to the Blue Mist or Andaman restaurants. Very cheap $800 Baht for 2 entrees, 2 mains and 4 beers. The JW Marriott is a fantastic vacation spot if you are after a luxurious, relaxing vacation. We will definitely be coming back here. We loved it!
