“Great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We arrived about 10.30 in the morning and were happy to hear that our room was ready and we could actually already check in! All the staff were lovely and very easy to communicate to in english. We were taken to our room which was very spacious, very clean and had a massive bed! The bathroom was also very nice with a large double shower, great for couples!

Don't be too deterred by the view. From our balcony we had a nice view of the swimming pool, a not so nice view of a stream/river thing but then a nice view of the hills and trees. So just block out the middle third and you will be fine. You won't really be spending too much time looking at it anyway and you can't see it from the pool or restaurant area.

The breakfast every morning was fantastic. A large variety of foods for people of all nationalities to feel at home. French toast, pancakes, bacon, egs, noodles, curry, rice, salad, fresh fuit, danishes and more along with a selection of juices, tea and coffee.

The front desk staff were very helpful in booking us a trip to Phi Phi island and the only let down for the hotel was the fact that when we requested to book a taxi for 6.30am they forgot to book it :( we ended up leaving about 7:10 for a 9.25am flight, arriving at the airport at 8am which was a bit of a rush to get through check in and customs.

Overall we had a great stay at the Blue Ocean Resort. A great place to stay in Patong, with good proximity to the beach, bars and markets. Would stay again.

Was happy with my stay at this hotel, staff were really nice especially DeeDee and the other staff working at Breakfast time. Hotel was really clean, locations good if you wanna stay away from the noisy area of patong, but yet still only a 12 min walk to Bangla rd and the beach. Overall good hotel, and value for money

Last June we came back to this hotel (see our review of last January) just to say hello, but the people there were so very friendly that I decided to write this review. We were invited for the bbq party there and almost everyone recognized us. The quality of the bbq was perfect again and a show as well.
I also could use there computer to check my mails and received free coffee and water or softdrink. I t felt like coming home.

The service and attitude of Blue Ocean is very friendly and courteous. The room is spacious and clean, and also very quiet.
They also help to decorate the room very nicely for my proposal. Thanks Blue Ocean Resort & Spa!!!

In February 2013 stayed at Blue Ocean Resort in Patong. It was a fabulous resort. Very Clean and spacious rooms.
An Ideal resort to book in as close to all amenities and beach. Walking distance to all nightlife and shopping market and malls A wonderful resort with absolutely friendly staff. The best time we had at the resort. We were looked after by all the staff. We travel frequently and stay at 5 star mainly. This particularly resort made our stay so enjoyable.
Every morning we were greeted by all the staff and especially the resort customer service manager named Zafar and the general manger JJ who personally took extra care by giving us the best service. The chef prepared our meals every night which we thoroughly enjoyed . The cuisine was beautifully prepared. Very scrumptious food!!!!!!
We strongly recommend this resort without any doubt to anyone. Wonderful!!!!!!!
Try staying at this resort you, will never regret it.

I have never in my life experienced such a tardy check-in in my life!!! They took forever to check us in. Don't go by the pics on the site. It's a small hotel on the Patong Road. The room was ok. Now, when we checked in, my husband was ill and we needed help and a Nepali guy,( I am sorry that I have forgotten his name, but even during our stay, I remember calling him by different names,) helped us as he was the only guy who could understand us. He informed us that a visit by a doctor would set us back by Rs 5000/- . We called up our doc and he prescribed the medicine and that guy helped us to buy it from a chemist.
Now, we got an inkling of service during check-in itself, now I called up the room service to order food and it took at least three people to understand what I wanted. I was delighted to see Indian dishes on the menu and ordered Shahi Paneer, dal and fried rice. OMG, when the food arrived, the room started stinking! I was surprised as to where the smell emanated from but the surprise was short lived as the moment I uncovered the cling film from the plate of fried rice, I was overtaken by a wave of nausea. The rice stank as if some animal had died in it! The paneer was tasteless. Eventually, we managed to fill our stomach with dal and roti as with the hubby ill, we couldn't go out to eat! Come to think of it, the hotel is owned by a person of Indian Origin.
Breakfast is ok. The Indian food at the breakfast should be avoided. The breads are good and he eggs are cooked according to our taste.
The good thing: it's at a 15 minute walking distance from Jungceylon and the Walking Street ;)) There are quite a few Indian Restaurants here in the market which will deliver even to your hotel.
I guess the people get confused between Blueocean resort and Blue Ocean Beach Resort. You can book your tickets for Phuket Phantasea ( not worth it, prefer home grown Zangoora!) and the speed boat cruise to the Phi Phi islands etc( Sea Angel Cruise was awesome!) at the travel agencies just across the street. There is a Seven O seven store where you can buy your water, sun screens and quite a few good eatables. Buy bottles in dozens from the stores rather than loose bottles to save a lot of money. Don't drink normal water.
