The rooms in this hotel are incredibly spacious and clean, with beautiful views on a lovely bay. The rooms are very well equipped, with beach towels, flip flops, bags to take your items to the beach, toothbrushes and even a torch, there is a minibar at reasonable prices. The pool is also clean, although quite small (19x5 m). The beach... More

by the sea Very good, peacefull location at the busy phuket. Free shuttle to phuket central festival. Nice, clean room. In fact it's an appartment because you have a kitchen, a sofa, bathroom and bedroom. Terrace is small but ok. I would go back because of the price and good location. Breakfast is nice. Yoghurt, hot dishes, salad bar, eggs,... More

Overall my husband, 2 year old and I had a perfect vacation at By the Sea Hotel in November 2014.

We loved this hotel when we traveled in April 2015. Even tough it's further from the airport, it's worth it if you are looking for a quiet beach.
