R Mar Resort and Spa4.0 out of 5.0

If it wasn’t for the large scale expansion being undertaken at present,( hence a lot of noise between 8am- 5pm, with expected completion March 2020) this resort would be a quiet little oasis, amongst the nearby hustle and bustle of Bangla Road. The rooms were fairly generous inside, clean and comfortable ( especially after getting softer mattress toppers to go on the hard beds) The staff were reasonably friendly but not overly we found, apart from the security guy at the entrance, who made a point of giving a full military salute and warm smile every time we past him. Never ate a meal there as the included breakfast was so poor it put us off eating there at all. However there are two restaurants just outside the complex, The Orange and Patong Corner which we’re both excellent. The massage place next to the Patong Corner restaurant ( also same company as the one attached to the resort) were also excellent and better than all others we tried. I think for the price, and the convenience to downtown Patong( only a 5-10 minute walk) it is certainly a place we would return too, but perhaps once the construction is completed!
Room is spacious. They have a huge renovation that the noise is super loud when you are at the pool. The gym is not really a gym, they just put the workout machine at an area which used to be a bar. The staff charged us for using telephone at 15baht / min. The second time we use the telephone they don’t charge us , we don’t know why, later we found other resorts they don’t charge us on that. The only good thing about the room is that all the food and drinks at the minibar is free. Not much choice at the breakfast, especially I am a vegetarian, I don’t have chance to eat hot dishes when I stayed there for 3 nights, maybe due to low number of guests stayed.
This hotel is awful. They claim on the booming website that minor renovations are happening. In actual fact they have demolished half the hotel and are rebuilding from scratch. They have signs up to say that construction won't start until 11am. It starts around 8:30am. And it is not minor construction - they are drilling to create the piles with huge cement mixer trucks and other trucks coming in and out all day. The construction is right next to the swimming pool. It is a mud bath to get in and out the hotel, particularly in rainy season. The owners of the hotel are clearly greedy beyond belief, selling rooms in a major construction site. The breakfast is awful. There is no choice at all and they cannot even cook eggs. The dining are, with huge empty spaces where food should be laid out and cheap sugary fruit drinks, brings back memories of communist era East Germany where shoppers were queuing up outside to get i to the store and grab the one loaf of bread that was available to the starving public. Worst of all, the staff have a scam on the go at check out where they claim that cutlery is missing from the room. Cutlery that wasn't in your room and wasn't used as it didn't exist. They refuse to call the police when you ask as they know that they have something to hide. Ridiculous that the owners are allowing staff to do this shakedown on guests. The only plus side to this hotel is the location and that there are several good places to eat on the same Soi. Avoid this hotel if you want a relaxing break. It is a major construction site and the food at breakfast is putrid.
Simply love this hotel will always travel n book RMAR resort and spa hotel phuket Thailand Best pool n spa n rooms were nice n clean balcony is big n bathroom was awesome thank you so much for having us there
From Melbourne-Australia, we had originally booked somewhere else locally, but the minute we walked in, we knew we had to find somewhere else (dirty toilet/ bathroom, nowhere to store suitcases, window faced brick wall and smelled). We walked into R-mar and knew we were saved! Beautiful rooms, staff and service. Our room on top floor looked over the pool facing the main town and beautiful hills behind it. Fitness, garden and pool areas were kept immaculately clean and tidy, as was the indoors restaurant. We highly recommend staying here! Thank you R-Mar.
Stayed here 3 nights, loved every minute of it, nice comfy rooms with wood floors. Pool and pool service was fantastic. Ordered food by the pool and it was delicious. I will definitely come back. Check in was fast and staff was nice. I can recommend this hotel.
Pros: Location, close to beach and popular nightlife spots Spacious room and bathroom Friendly staff, especially in-house travel consultant Large pool Great wifi Easy check-in Cons: Lighting in room can be improved Outdated furniture and bedding/towels No electrical outlets next to bed Joint-room doors have enough space at bottom to hear guests next door
Lovely boutique resort bang in the middle of Patong yet away form all the noise. Helpful and warm staff, large rooms with Balconies and a great pool makes this a must stay for travelers. You are in the middle of all the action yet away from all the noise. The breakfast could be a bit better though
We stayed for 8 nights, very welcome on arrival, free mini bar daily, nice touch, the shower water smelt a lot , room might need a vaccum every day as the sweeping causes a lot of dust , Free breakfast was ok, the eve we asked to Have wake up call, lucky I was awake from being sick from there room service, because our wake up call never happened and we had to wake the reception attendant who then said he not understand English , next time will read more reviews
For what we pay ($40usd) is super cheap Come with free mini bar every day, even though just water, soft drinks and few cans of beers. Still good when it is so hot, u can finish them all! Staff is friendly! Like the egg station at their breakfast! Didnt go to the pool due to tight schedule. Photos on website look slightly different in reality but still okay! Convenient location, walk to patong beach only takes around 15mins.
