We have been coming to Phuket Sea Resort for many years now. Main reason is to get away from Patong and to go to the Sunshine Bar. The poolside rooms are only 1100baht a night ($35) during low season which includes breakfast and wifi. This is their walk in rate which is cheaper than their website. It is a great... More

Phuket Sea Resort met my expectations. It's a nice hotel, clean, modern and has two swimming pools. We had the suite which offered a separate living room from the bedroom. The breakfast buffet in the morning was well stocked and included in the price of the room. Proximity wise, it's close to restaurants and bars. Walk outside the hotel and... More

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

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...
