“Fine if Nothing Else is Available”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

this is a very average average hotel. the rooms are clean but the AC is clunky and noisy and the lighting is not conducive to sleep. Location is good as it is both near and away from the loudness of Patong. Staff performance is mixed. Some are friendly others not so much. We needed a late checkout but were instead given access to the shower room, which was inhabited by many mosquitoes. Breakfast was ok. Overall, it's fine but not great and good if you can't find anything better.

I stayed for one night, the only thing I was disappointed in was the size of the pool. Never mind the ocean was right across the road.
Room was good but the bed VERY hard, I didnt notice the traffic and I had a room right on the corner.
Found the staff nice and the breakfast was adequate.

Room Tip: Its right down the other end of Patong but still ok to walk to Bangla road and shopping centre

My wife and I booked the Deluxe Sea view Jacuzzi Suite and we didn't regret it at all! It was a totally enjoyable one! Large living space and bathroom! Love this place. I would recommend it to couple who are going for their honeymoon.

Location is good too. Quiet and just a street to the beach and about 20 min walk to Jungceylon shopping mall.

The one thing I think the hotel can improve is their breakfast which are quite limited. Other wise, this is a really good hotel to stay in!

For our annual vacation, my husband and I chose one of the flashy hotels, with obviously photoshopped pics on their website. Anyways, after an unpleasant stay, we went to check out a property named "Seagull" opposite Patong Beach, where my husband stayed at right after the Tsunami. To our pleasant surprise, we found The Bliss where once the very humble Seagull stood. We walked in and were immediately enchanted by the ever-smiling Tony's warm welcome. From that moment onwards, I can only recount pleasant experience. We stayed at the Deluxe Room for three nights and then decided to extend our stay by another day and moved to one of the suites. It was simply wonderful. We were just a stone's throw away from the quiet end of Patong Beach. Staff were warm and friendly. I'm not fussy about food but breakfast wasn't bad either. Oh yeah, didn't hesitate to enjoy a romantic time in the Jacuzzi in our suite :)
I highly recommend this place to all fellow travellers.

Room Tip: If you are staying at one of the deluxe rooms, choose one on the fourth floor that is closer to the...

We booked this hotel as we like a private pool to relax in at night after a busy day, and wanted to be close to the beach and shopping. Our room was great, large sitting room, big bedroom with a huge bed, really nice bathroom with a toilet, urinal and rain shower. Stepping out of our bedroom we were only a few feet from our pool and nice outdoor area.
From our room we could see the beach which was only straight across the road and easy to go backwards and forwards when you want the beach.
Breakfast was a large buffet style with a few variations each day, and it you pick a window seat you can eat while watching the sea lapping at the shore.
The bar was also a lovely friendly place with cheap cocktails all day, but cheaper from 6pm until 8pm. We also had a few meals here and they were very fresh and tasty.
While we did not use the resort pools they both looked inviting. All the staff were very friendly and could not do enough for you.
We walked to OTOP and Jungceylon and Bangla Road, but we also got a tuk tuk sometimes and they were all a set price of 200 baht.
We like to stay in different areas each time we visit, so not sure if we will stay in Patong next time, but if we did we would stay here again as it was definitely worth the money we paid.

Room Tip: Ground floor pool rooms great

The bliss was great for many reasons, it was quiet, in the hotel and on the street and you could walk across the road to the beach without being hassled. It was a short walk to the shops and bangla road but away from all the noise and trust me you want that!
The floor rooms with your own pool and view of the beach were amazing value and rare in patong beach.
Breakfast was okay, omelettes were great but needed more western options.
Staff were always nice and helpful.
Lack of spa services and fitness centre was a bit of a downer.
You need to remember that this is not really a "resort" there are a 2 pools but thats about it. The food and drink menu is limited but tasty. It suited us as there were no kids, being a couple thats q big thing. Theres an italian restaurant just next door which is to die for with amazing views.
Very happy with the room it was huge with separate lounge room/bedroom with big shower and bathroom. place was clean and pleasant. The bed was a little hard but i was prepared for that from reading these reviews. For the price of your own pool so close to the beach highly recommended. this would be great for everyone except families

Room Tip: Go for the private pool rooms, book direct for cheap stay pays (eg. we paid for 4 stayed 8)

I went to Patong for my honeymoon from Canada. This wasnt my first trip to Patong and wont be my last. I decided to take the room with the private pool so i can enjoy my time with my wife privately. However when we got to the room it turns out that the "Private" pool had one big bush / tree blocking it from the main road. I recommend that maybe a fence be placed there to stop people walking on the street from looking in.
Another issue which was a hassle was the fact that the internet didnt reach the bedroom only the living room. This isnt a complaint but i would rather enjoy utilizing internet while im comfortably in bed and not standing between the living room and bedroom trying to get a signal. For the internet i had to relogin everytime i left the room. Why dont you purchase the internet service which does automatic relogin?
Besides these recommendations the hotel is great, location is good and relaxing. Its far enough from Bangla to relax yet in walking distance to everything Patong has to offer.

Room Tip: This is a good hotel for all categories of people from adults to children and its in a nice quiet ar...
