“Two weeks of bliss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Great Hotel, three pools and a short walk to the Beach and Karon central for meals and shopping. Only reason 4/5 is the Air Conditioning was noisy and House Keeping could have been 100%, missed water, tea bags on a few occasions. The staff were friendly and helpful.
Craig and Sandy

Room Tip: Book floors 3 and above, get views of ocean etc.

This is the best place I have ever been to. Big, clean rooms, nice room service, great pools(especially one on the upper floor, where you can relax and admire view of the city), Excellent food - You can try some local types of food for breakfast. If You want just to relax(very silent place) and have a good time- this is something You need. 5 minutes walk from the hotel there is a beautifull wide clean beach - must see this! Many restaurants and shops in the neighbouhood. I'd love to visit this hotel again..

We have stayed in this resort for the last 3 years. The staff that were there when we first stayed are still there. I believe this says a lot good things about the employer. They are all lovely and remember us from year to year. They always make us feel most welcome and always go to great lengths to make us comfortable. The beds in Thailand are very hard and the staff here have always made us comfortable.

This time we stayed for 12 nights with 6 of our friends. I think this is a great resort for couples, friends and or families. We love the location as it is only a short walk to the beach, the convenience store, mini markets, The Temple markets, and a multitude of very good restaurants. The Baron restaurant just outside the resort do a terrific pizza.

Yes the resort is getting a bit tired but it is always very clean and well presented. The pools are always immaculate, the food, especially breakfast, is always good with lots of variety. There is a taxi and tuk tuk located across the road. There are lots of bars in the area if that is your thing also. You get what you pay for and we have always had very reasonable rates.

Yes there are stairs but this is very useful in maintaining your pre-holiday weight!

The rooms are good sized, the bathrooms were updated in a lot of the rooms a couple of years ago and as I said they will make the mattress what you need. All you have to do is ask :-)
I would have no hesitation in staying at this resort again or recommending anyone else to.

Thank you Best Western Phuket Ocean Resort for another wonderful holiday. See you next year!

Room Tip: If you stay on level 3 there is a pool there which is not used so much by the rest of the resort (I...

We Kiwis have had the pleasure of staying at Ocean Resort Phuket in August of this year. We were pleasantly surprised with the well groomed gardens and lovely pool areas. Our room was clean and tidy and very adequate for our stay. Breakfasts were included in our package and we were spoilt for choice every day, no matter what time we got to the restaurant.

We stayed here for 10 nights and got to know the restaurant staff quite well. We were given excellent service and some of them went out of their way to look after us. Its amazing how some nationalities were so rude to them and how two words like "thank you" meant so much to them and they went the extra mile just to please. We will miss those people and it was quite sad having to say goodbye to them and maybe we would be back next year.

Reception staff were very efficent too and served us well when we needed them. Overall we were provided with friendly and efficent service from all quarters and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a nice comfortable place to stay. We were dropped off and picked up by Hotel Beds so airport transfers was not a problem too.

Room Tip: Our trip was a package deal and we stayed on the second level. We had a small balcony and could sit...

We have stayed here for 4 years in a row now. The staff are great at breakfast but reception desk may benefit from a little bit of English. There are 3 pools and a small gym but make sure you do not end up anywhere near the top floor as it is a huge hike up many stairs , one side of the hotel has no elevator, Th rooms need a bit of an update, some bathrooms are from the 80's and comparing with like hotels , prehaps they should consider renovating. It is very clean, breakfast is superb. Over 4 years that we have stayed there we ave noticed the restaurant and bar of an evening has never any patrons. My suggestion is, introduce say a games night so fellow travellers can meet one and other and maybe while enjoying themselves the bar might benefit. We aways get a wonderful deal here but this year , no airport transfer was offered.

Room Tip: Bear in mind the steps.. Always ask for a room on 2nd or 3rd floor or the left side of the resort wh...

We have been to Phuket many times. We booked a package deal which included accommodation, too good a deal not to go. We like Karon beach so thought this place would be ideal. It is good basic accommodation, free wi fi in lobby, staff and restaurant nice, 4 pools were lovely. Location ok, although we usually stay at resorts just across the road from beach. Markets only minutes away. For budget conscious travellers, this place would be OK, but if you want something a bit more upmarket, The Thavorn palm beach also in karon is much nicer. As we feel Phuket has really gone down hill, we would go back to Koh Samui any day in preference to Phuket.

Room Tip: There are lots of steps so if you have dodgy knees, give this place a miss!

We stayed at this hotel for 8 nights in Mid August. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms (superior) were spacious, very clean , a good air con unit and a very good shower. The breakfast included in the room rate was excellent. Huge choice from cereals, fresh fruit, salads, cheese, ham, pancakes, bacon and eggs cooked to your requirements. The pools are well maintained and provide a good alternative to the beach at this time of the year. The shopping area is a short walk away with a small 7/11 quite close. There is a very good complimentary coffee machine in the hotel bar/ computer area. There are some steps to negotiate but we managed comfortably. There is a lift from the second level. The hotel also has a fitness room with more than adequate treadmills, cycles and a small range of weights.

Room Tip: As an older couple we were on the first level of rooms overlooking the two pools and facing the beac...
