“A Hidden Gem in Patong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2010

I found dis hotel by chance as i was on my way walking 2 the beach( as well as checking out some reasonably good N value 4 $ accomodations for my frens who are due 2 visit Phuket in Jul 2010). Guess wat? I was made welcome the moment i stepped into the Reception Area. To my 'surprise', the Front Desk staff all speak GOOD english! I was given a tour 2 the pool deck and room. And guess what i did after that? I forfeited 1 day payment of the hotel that i was putting up just to stay in THE SEA, at least ONE nite before my departure. As far as service is concerned, from the reception, room service, C.S. Manager, chamber staff to the electrician, it's simply OUTSTANDING! As for the room, it is VERY spacious and complimented with minibar, tea-coffee making facility, safe box, flat-screen TV, sofa( 1 in the room and 1 in the balcony, and the balcony even have a ceiling fan!), good air-con, large and comfy bed and even umbrellas for rainy season! The Sea is situated in Patong area and it's just 3-5min walk to the happening area as well as to the beach. If U R too lazy to walk, jus a short-less-than 1min walk, U r able to find convenient stores, food joints and so on. The best part is the hotel is NOT affected(except during DAYTIME fr nearby constructions) by the noise of those pubs/discos. I will strongly recommend travellers to check dis hotel out and may even gv it a try as it is really value for $$ if U r looking for nice/comfy room and good service. However, the pool which is located on the highest flr(5th) is not so appealing(not bcos of its size) as the tiles used is dull green. The food served here can be improved further though. If u asked me to rate this hotel, with the scale of 10, it simply scores 9!!!!

I must say my holiday is perfect. We have airport transfer from hotel cost 650Baht. The hotel staff great, very friendly, very helping us for anything we need, from renting motor bike (200Baht per day), directions to places, etc. Hotel location is in north patong, near to the beach (3 minutes walk), and bangla road (10 minutes walk). If you go straight then turn right and on your left (of the beach) there is small restaurants, pharmacy, family mart, tour agent. From the hotel right side is Patong beach (lots of resto & bars), left side is Rat U Tit road lots of resto n small shops and 10 minutes walk to Jungceylon Mall.

The room very clean & spacious, style very modern and cozy, has balcony with sofa, LCD TV, DVD player, shower, Wi fi Internet for free, minibar in the room also free of charge. Small swimming pool & Restaurant is in the rooftop.

Minus: Bed hard enough, no bathtub, no view from balcony

The morning shift staff in The Blue Restaurant. Especially Mr. IAT , a waiter in the hotel restaurant. From the very first day, when IAT greeted us with a friendly smile, the service he provided was first class. Even during the last mins for the breakfast ( we arrive at The Blue at 10:30a.m. on 06 Mar) IAT showed total dedication and commitment to his duties.

Stay length: 18/02/10 to 22/02/10

Warm welcome by the staffs.
Very clean room.
Value for money.

The photos of the hotel does'nt seems appealing to me until I see it with my own eyes..

Roof top dining, the breakfast was great! good start for the day!

Everything was fine until the last day. We requested for a late check out for both of our rooms, the staff checked and said sorry our rooms was booked already and we need to check out latest by 2pm. She added, she will give us a room at ground floor for us to put our luggage and bathe before setting off to airport. We were given until 5pm. That was awesome....

Saw pictures from website but the real thing looks so much better. Walk in rates around 4,500 baht. It's a small hotel but close to the beach and Bangla road. Very modern and cozy has DVD player, wifi Internet for free, big faucet shower and balcony with lounging sofa and fan. Much better than my expectation. The minibar in the room also free of charge and refill everyday.The breakfast is on rooftop next to swimming pool. The waiter gave the menu with 6 breakfast set selections. Highly reccommend and would definitely return if I ever go to Phuket again. The only drawback is the noisy construction site next door.

I was quite reluctant to stay in this hotel since I couldnt find much reviews in tripadvisor. However, this is a gr8 hotel with a modern design. The rooms are very spacious enough and looks exactly like the ones posted in Trip advisor. The patong beach is just across the road( hardly 2 mins walk) and eventhough it's in the middle of all the happening places in Patong, you hardly feel that when you are inside the hotel. Overall an excellent place to stay for singles. For families, I would recommend not to stay in Patong at all!!

The Sea was a very good hotel, immaculately clean, really friendly staff and good value for money. It is a short walk to the beach and surrounded by lots of bars and restaurants although surprisingly quiet in the room considering the location. Although at the quieter end of Patong the whole area is still very sleezy.
