“Lovely Modern Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This hotel is positioned at the nicer end of patong. The hotel is lovley and modern and well kept. The deluxe room is very comfortable and the free mini bar is very useful. The staff are very friendly and informative. The pool has a great view of the andaman sea, however there is a lack of sunbeds on some days. The breakfast is very extensive and of good quality. The hotel restaurant was extremely nice was not to expensive either. To the north of the hotel was 4 or 5 lovely restaurants (joes downstairs, aqua etc) These were quite expensive but much better quality than the restaurants in Patong. I would definately return to this hotel again.

I chose this hotel based on the price and location for a weekend in Patong Phuket. I would stay here again.

The rooms are clean (cement floors) with good amenities such as a big bathroom, waterfall shower, flat screen, good air con. There was a jacuzzi on the balcony. There was a clean with a firm bed. Ground floor rooms all have access to a lap pool.

Service was friendly and helpful with good attitude all around. No issues with English comprehension. There appeared to be a Russian Concierge as well.

The pool is big and beautiful. About 20 chairs that never seemed completely full. There is a clear view of the beach / ocean from the pool. This was a major selling point.

For location, the hotel is 20 secs across the road from Patong beach. That said you are a solid 10-15 min walk from the Bang La walking street or 3 minutes from famous Bang Rim Paa restaurant. There is a helpful taxi stand directly across the street.

We did not eat at the hotel bye the restaurant looked fine.

All in all not bad for the price of 150-160. I probably would stay elsewhere over 200 but I struggled to find a better price and location combo.

We booked the rooms with private pool access.It was really a treat.The main pool is also of unique design makes the water look colourfull and inviting. The breakfast was rich and yummi (first place i was to serve sushi at breakfast).The room has modern design and the free mini-bar and internet access just added to the fun. Excellent service and location at the norther part of patong beach,But still everything you need within walking distance.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in December 2012 and rang in NYE there. We had a pool access room from our balcony and The hotel made our stay. NYE gala had excellent lobster and the staff were very friendly. I really enjoyed the location as it was right across the beach. All the staff were very friendly. The hotel was a bit pricey but we were there in peak season. We had a chance to meet the GM and his wife during NYE and they were such lovely people as well. All good things to say about the hotel only con would be the price but I guess you get what you pay for!

On the more "calm" side of Patong beach, almost on Kalim beach this modern hotel was very much to our liking. You could walk into the heart of Patong and Bangla road (if that is your thing) in about 10 minutes, but if you choose not to then therr are plenty of really good restaurants around the hotel and furthrr up Kalim beach. The hotel is a 4 star trying really hard to be a 5 star but it is lacking a bit. The rooms are a bit "worn" (cracks in the walls etc) but nice and clean. We had direct pool access and it is not to the main pool but a long thin pool passing by 5-6 rooms. So we only felt comfortable swimming in our small squard of the pool outside our room - so if I stay there again I will not spend money on that again. (also those rooms get no direct sun!) the level of english of the staff, even for Thailand, was extremely bad.nit was only reception that spoke some english. We had several encounters with housekeeping and room service and if they didnt understand you they would do one of 3 things: 1. Someone else would call you back and check what you wanted, 2. Come to your door so you could use the wonderful language that is body language to make them understand what you wanted, or 3. They would say yes, and do nothing about it. They did have some nice touches though, like a beach bag for you to use while you were there, the mini-bar was free and refilled every day. We didnt have a meal plan on our booking but we soon discovered that it was cheaper to order room service for breakfast than go to the dining room so we did that for the whole stay. And do NOT let them book you taxi to the airport. They wanted to charge us 1500 BHT, but we paid 800 BHT to a taxi driver we found outside the hotel. (we rented a taxi for 6 hours for sightseeing and paid 1400BHT). But all in all a nice hotel.

Stayed at B-Lay Tong for NYE and NYD and was very happy with the room (with lap pool) and the hotel amenities (swim up pool bar, NYE gala dinner). Wes, the General Manager was very attentive as were all staff. The Gala buffet dinner was ridiculously good as was the breakfast buffet. The location is by far the best in Patong - beach front, just north of the craziness. Very cool place for a couple.

Room Tip: The lap pool rooms are a must!
