“Dont stay here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

OH boy what a big mistake was booked for 7 nights lasted for 6 nights only because we were told that they would move us to a room that was away from the road side other wise we would have left after the 2nd night. The noise from the bars was full on untill 3 am every night. this hotel is the sales center for Absolute Time share and all the good rooms are kept for the poor unexpecting mugs that buy from them. Would never stay there again even if it was for free, this hotel has put a bad tast in us and we have lost confidence in ever staying in Phuket ever again.
We will not recomend this hotel to our worst enemy let a lone our friends.
All I can say is wake up Absolute sound proof them rooms or dont rent them out.

Room Tip: Do not stay there find a hotel away from the bar area's

While this is not the best hotel in Patong it certainly is cheap and has everything that you need while on holiday. It is located at the end of the main road in Patong and is very close to bars, restaurants and directly across from the beach.

This hotel is really just a sales front and office for the aggressively marketed Absolute timeshare and vacation sales group. Although it is nominally well located opposite the beach it is a noisy old and poorly appointed hotel well beyond its use by date. If you aren't getting a cheap rate or low cost/free room through Absolute, suggest you look elsewhere.
Double glazing, room safes, and a coat of paint are all wanting, and until these basics are fixed, there are quieter, more peaceful and more comfortable alternatives out there, without the sales pitch.

We stayed for a week June 29 July 6. Staff are very friendly and helpful.
Rooms are ok but out-dated.
One thing that needs to be addressed is whether this is a hotel or a sales office for Timeshare.
Hotel guests certainly appear to be considered second to the time share business.
The cars out the front certainly do not make this an appealing hotel.
Location is across from the beach and within easy walking distance to restaurants and shops etc.
Believe there are better hotels for the price in Patong Beach.
Only go to this hotel of you are prepared to have a Timeshare presentation during your stay.

Thank for your comments. It is true that this hotel is used for vacation ownership presentations but that is only for customers who have signed up, not for all the guests.

This hotel is in a great location, close to all the shopping in Patong and very close to bars and entertainment and across the road from the beach.
The rooms are very clean, tidy and open. The staff are friendly and overall it is not a bad hotel.
The Ocean view rooms are the best but usually always booked out, the street view rooms are good but if your a light sleeper don't book in these rooms for the bars are noisey all night. There are quiet rooms on the other side of hotel but you don't get a view.

Room Tip: Book very early and try for an Ocean View Room

Thank you for your review of our resort and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. It's true to say that location is key for all our resorts and Sea Pearl does tend towards the quieter side of Patong and it's beach so one retreat in a sense especially in the Ocean View rooms which are indeed very popular with our guests.

My wife and I stay at this hotel every year for 2 weeks for the past 4 years and are booked in again this year 22nd July 2013 for another 2 weeks.
We have experienced most room types, Ocean View are the best but you need to book very early to get one of these. The rooms overlooking the bars are also ok but you need to be a heavy sleeper otherwise you won't get any sleep at all, I like watching the action on the street so it doesn't bother me and we are heavy sleepers. If you don't want a view and like a quiet room they are available on the other side of the hotel.
This hotel is a base for a lot if time share selling and you may get asked to go to a presentation it is your choice, we never have and find we don't get hassled when we tell them we are staying at this hotel smile and say we are not interested thank you and they leave you alone then no problems.
The Breakfast has a good selection and a bit of variety the only negitive with breakfast is the taxi drivers leaning on the wall hassling you for day trips while all you want to do is enjoy the sound of the beach and each others company.

We stay at this hotel 5 night, and i feel very comfortable with their staff and their provide a good service, very friendly staff. Our room facing the beach view, every morning we take our breakfast at the balcony feel so relax. But the room not so perfect, the shower pressure no enough strong, the flush also no working well, the bath tub also like been stuck by sand. But overall is fine for us.

Thank you for your positive comments regarding our resort. We are however looking into the water pressure issues you mentioned to raise this to a superior level in the room. It did not seem to detract from enjoying your stay so I hope you take the opportunity to visit us again at one of our resorts.
