good value Can get loud

Review by BEHAPPY60 Modesto, California

Nice small hotel with very friendly, helpful staff. The hotel is very open and sound carries. We were there for 20 days, wonderful for the first 2 weeks...

Hotel has 17 rooms, only a few other guests most of the time. Unfortunately the last few days there were guests that came in at 3 AM. stayed in the lobby partying by the pool There is no one on the front desk after 10PM. This didn't bother me, but my husband was unable to sleep I would have given 4 stars if not for this problem. As hotel has a great location, very clean

Nice place, close to beach

Review by RandTree

We moved to Amarina after a rather terrible experience at Chaulty Towers, so we were just looking for a decent place in town close to the beach. Amarina fits the bill - for a good price we got a comfortable room and the beach is a 30sec walk down the alley. They provide towels for the beach and the woman at the front is super sweet and helpful...

She also spoke the best English we encountered in all of Thailand. Its location is also good. It's a little off the main strip (which is very loud) so it's quiet, but it is close enough that everything (night markets, bars, restaurants, mini marts), are all within a very walkable distance. Overall, very comfortable and clean. Would suggest that you actually avoid Lamai beach entirely, as it has a very red light district-y feel, but if you must, Amarina is a nice budget option near a fairly nice beach!

Look under the surface!

Review by JazzM1975 North Bay, Canada

I stayed one night in this hotel in August 2017. Was one of the only guest and it was very quiet a cozy. The building itself is about 10 years old and the rooms are in very good condition...

My bed was really comfortable and room was spacious.

However, there are several important things to point out.

Sound travels easily through the building. I could hear the receptionist talk on the telephone from my room. I can just imagine when the hotels is full and people use the swimming pool which is located directly in the lobby. My shower handle was broken upon check in and when I asked for shampoo, I was told the hotel only provides soap.

Positive = friendly staff, great location, decent price for the size of room. Negative = small pool, no shampoo, old tvs with fuzzy pictures, not very sound proof if you want quiet sleep.

Its an average hotel.

Close to the beach!

Review by christinarick Royal Oak, Michigan

Amarina Residence is a simple hotel with an excellent location just minutes from the beach. We had two balcony rooms for our group of four. Since the view is just buildings, the balcony wasn't really necessary, although it was nice for drying swimsuits and towels...

The woman at the front desk was helpful, and she recommended to us to check out the night market on Saturday which was great! There is a small pool in the lobby, but we never used it since the weather was good every day we were there. We walked to the beach multiple times a day, and we rented chairs from another nearby resort for 100 Baht for the whole day. Lamai Beach was beautiful and we swam and relaxed all day for the two days we stayed at Amarina. We went to some restaurants along the beach, and they were easy to find and a quick walk from our hotel. There was a little convenience store down the street where we stopped for water and snacks a couple times per day. The staff at Amarina even let us stay in our room until 3:00 PM (for a small fee) so that we could store our luggage and shower before our 5:30 PM flight. Although Amarina isn't very "resort-like" or quaint, it does the job for a comfortable, budget-friendly hotel near the beach.
