“Good location and the rest is just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Hotel is located at the Patong beach and a 10 minutes walk away from the popular night spots, the beach is just right across the road..very limited car park area behind the lobby area..small but sufficient lobby area, there are two swimming pools (small)... one on the second floor and one bigger one at the groud floor at the left of the lobby.. checked in the Superior Suite. The staff at the check in desk was friendly during check in and we was assigned on the second floor. Living room is spacious, bath room is clean and nice with a jacuzzi. Room was made up and cleaned daily with basic amenities. ( shaving kit is not included). Free wifi but wifi signal strenght is below average, certain part of the living has no wifi coverage at all. Sea view from the 2nd floor is blocked by the trees and noise from cars/tuk tuk driving by can be heard. Breakfast served is very basic. Wave was a bit rough during my visit (August)..not very safe to swim at the beach. Travel around Patong area and to other towns in Phuket is a pain because there isnt much choice and the tuk tuk or personal car taxi ( i guess they are not registered with the Phuket authorities) charge is exorbitant..a return trip to another place 8 KM away from the hotel at Patong could be charged around 1000 Bht to 1200 Bht. So rent a car at the airport from an established car rental company is highy recommended if your plan is to travel around the Phuket island. Checked out from the hotel is efficience and easy.

Room Tip: If you go for the Sea view Suite, try to avoid 2nd floor

We stayed in a deluxe room in the standard wing, we found this room very comfortable and clean. Very close to the main strip, hotel staff were lovely! Breakfast was great. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

Was back again in late May, checking in as a couple.

Be careful when booking at The Bliss. There are 2 sections - the Bliss Hotel and Bliss SUITES. The hotel is old and worn and the suites were built after the tsunami. To compare them is like night and day. Go with a suite

Had a Suite on 3rd floor which was identical to the one I had last time on 4th.

90 sqm total. Huge entrance room with work desk, tv, kitchen etc etc. Luxurious huge bathroom with lots of space in the shower and a 2-person side-by-side jacuzzi. Very nice bedroom with tv. Balcony with superb view of the beach. Absolutely superb!

The hotels old section has a pool and the Suites have their own much bigger pool. Private and quiet.

My review from March says it all and I can only say that it lived up to expectations again. Price was only 3.300baht/night this time so everything taken into consideration and price vs room&comfort ratio....I will give it a 5-star this time where as I only gave it 4 last time. The lower price gives this stay incredible value for money.

Walking distance to everything.

Tip: Go out the hoteldoor, turn right til you reach The Holiday Inn hotel, walk into the middle of it, find Sam's Steakhouse, sit down and enjoy a formidable dinner in a perfect atmosphere. Not pricy.

Room Tip: Suites on higher floor have the view. Suites on ground floor have HUGE private jacuzzi pools but no...

Rooms is huge with separate living room and bed room, we stayed in Deluxe Suit room, even though on top floor noise from road is quiet loud. Staffs are very polite specially Burmese staff who speaks English better than Thai.Location is quieter than the middle of Paton which is very crowded. Wireless works well but sometime signal could go with the flow of wind. Didn't try at restaurant because there is a lot of eateries around.

Room Tip: The beds are very hard and bath room wall is see through, so check out side before having shower.

We stayed at the Bliss Hotel in June for 10 nights. I never take the time to fill this type of feedback in but the service was absolutely fantastic. Every staff member was so friendly and polite and made us feel totally at ease. The rooms were spotless clean and the bathrooms were also very well kept. The Hotel manager Barry also took the time to introduce himself to us the day we arrived. He gave us plenty advice on where we should visit in Phuket and helped organise all the trips he was a very gracious host. Two particular staff members were very funny and friendly, TeTe and Tipsy they always made sure we were looked after and we wanted for nothing.
I would recommend it to anyone thinking of taking a holiday in Phuket and looking to feel relaxed and spoilt to 5 star standards.
Will definitely return and recommend to everyone I meet.
From the Irish couples living in Sydney - Shane, Sue, Mick and Lyn.

Room Tip: The newly renovated rooms are amazing.

the bliss hotel is good but shouldn't be rated as a five stars hotel, we stayed there 4 nights the room was more than great very large and the jacuzzy was ok but every time and go out my room i die from the very bad smell outside, i don't know what the source of that!!! the staff there are ok not remarkable, they knew that we are honeymooner but they didn't offer anything special. the view from the room was amazing, the location was great, on the beach and near to the markets but so much quiter.
tips: reserve a room in the high levels.

The location of this hotel was great. Directly opposite the beach at the far end of Patong Beach but within a 5-10 minute walk to everything. We stayed for 10 nights from 2 July in a Pool Suite and found the room to be very large and comfortable. The staff were very accommodating and when we advised the bed in the lounge area was too hard for our son they had housekeeping add another mattress to make it more comfortable. As the weather was not the best during our stay we ate at the hotel twice and really enjoyed the food. I would highly recommend the Bliss Suites if you are visiting Patong Beach.
