I am currently checked into this hotel. It has been less than 24 hours and I have received the worst treatment from check in to just asking for a sheet of paper. The bed has a ripped top sheet and even though the housekeepers came and re made the bed, they still left the ripped sheet there. If I hadn't... More

This hotel is a good option for someone with not very deep pockets.. We had a lay over at this resort only for a night since we reached phuket late night and had to checkin to a different better & expensive resort the next day, so we found of opting for this place just for a night considering it was...

We booked four nights here including Christmas day during our three week Thailand trip as we wanted some quiet time over the Christmas period. We found the hotel staff to be friendly and helpful - even changing our room from a double to a twin without hesitation. The rooms were large and clean with all the necessary faclilties. The pools...

We got baby bed/cot in our room it was not wooden but old looking metal - not bad at all tho. Pool was nice but the night time noise was irritating from the next room. Breakfast was... More

Apparently this hotel changes name a fair bit as I know it as the Phuket Sea Resort but in Trip advisor seems to be listed as the Maalai Resort. Was looking for a hotel reasonably close to Promthep Cape and close to Wat Chalong and this hotel seemed to fit the bill. Excellent walk in price in low season (around... More

One day this hotel will decide what it wants to be called! It has now changed back to its old name of Phuket Sea Resort. We really enjoyed our stays at Phuket Sea Resort (formerly called Maalai Resort) which is on the beach road at Rawai Beach. Their low season walk in rates are fantastic, we paid 1100 baht per...

We spend 6 nights in the resort and had a very good time. The room is clean and with a lot of space. Breakfast is good and for additional service the restaurant provide excellent food as well. You are close to the working beach as most of the day tours to the nearby Islands start here. This is a big... More
