“FANTASTIC - WILL BE BACK”
Reviewed August 22, 2011

Just returned from our stay at the Bliss, we stayed for 26 days, our room was in the new part of the Bliss. We stayed at the pool suite, ground floor with our own plunge pool, one of the best rooms we have stayed in, loved it!!

The location of the Hotel is right acroos from Patong beach and approx 1.2 km to Bangla Road, this is the main strip where all the action happens at night, bars, nightclubs etc.

It is also close to everything else you might need, 7 eleven, market stalls & if you love getting a foot massage, there is plenty to choose from.

Our room; great size, approx 90sqm, large living area with a small kitchen which comes in handy when you are staying for a longer time.
The bedroom has large silding doors that overlooks the pool & the beach, which is very relaxing.
If you like spending time by the pool, it is a good size pool , you can people watch from your sun lounger. & you can see the beach also.
Sunset at Patong beach is breathtaking & you can watch this from your own sun lounger, by your own pool, depending which room you have.
Bathroom is great size, with a rainshower head & a standard European shower head.

There are 2 LCD TVs, one in the lounge room & one in the bedroom, which is great for when you are sleepy but your partner is not.

Breakfast, great choice's, plus there is an egg station that makes great eggs & bacon. Pleny of choices for breakfast from hot foods eg sausages, noodles, rice to cold cuts & great fruit.
We only ate at the Hotel & it was great, we also ordered food off the menu, the head chef was more then happy to prepare something different, eg we ordered 1kg of prawn's made in four different way's, excellent. Room service was also very good & very prompt,

Cocktails are only 100 baht, approx $3 AUD, and there is nothing better then watching the sunset from the Hotel restuarant , while having dinner, the best view in Patong.

The Manager, Barry Smyth, and his wonderful staff , from reception to the cleaners are always there to assist you in whatever your needs are, thank you all for making our stay wonderful.

We are planning to come back early next year & we are looking forward to seeing everyone at the Bliss.

Room Tip: If you can, get the pool suite.

Stayed here in July 2011...was in the older part of the bliss and still very impressed, great value, my partner and I paid 160 each for 5 nights
A very nice view from what I hear is from every room.
Cheap 100 baht (approx $3 AUS) cocktails downstairs delivered to you in the pool.
Great staff, cleaned our room everyday; My friends left out a couple of hundred baht and it was not taken.

Make sure you get the buffet breakfast...really good food and amazing view
Great sized bed.

Only bad point was the bathroom..not a fan of shower over baths but it was fine

Room Tip: Go in low season, try

After reading some of the reviews before my stay at the Bliss it left me feeling a little worried. Just back from our holiday after two fantasic weeks at the Bliss i have to say we had one of our best holidays yet.The manager and his staff were better by far than any other hotel we have stayed in over the years.We had a suite on the fourth floor for a week then moved to a pool suite for our second week. We also asked to see the delux rooms and i wouldn't have a problem booking a delux room on our next trip as all rooms have great sea views. Thank you again to Barry the manager, and his beautiful staff at the bliss,we miss you already.

I stayed in a suite with my own private pool beach accross the rd. Room was beautiful and large big bathroom great shower and seperate lounge so glad I stayed here the staff are amazing and Bell that works at the bar makes amazing cocktails which I enjoyed while watching the sunset. Room service is better than some resaurants. Read some bad reviews before I left and met some people while there who had a tiny room and said it was nothing flash I showed them mine and they realized they got what they paid for tight arses Aussies trying to save a dollar in a place where everything is cheap lash out get a suite and thank me when you get home.

In the ordering of this hotel, I spefically asked to have a twin room, when we got there late at night (10pm), they said that although they had a twin bed they were pushed together and tomorrow for such a short stay this was not acceptable after some review of the situation we managed to convince the unhelpful reception staff just to get some one to get extra sheets and separate the beds. It did not matter that what the sheeting was like just that they were seperate.
Breakfast in the morning was a good selection both night for $67 USD a night in Thailand is expensive for what we got, the rooms were small and the internet was patchy. We did find a coakroach n the room since there were no skirting on the bottom of the doors and a balcony would have been nice given the view, the window blinds were a pain to open and close overall not a recomended hotel

From the moment we arrived until we left 3 weeks later, the management and staff throughout the hotel were fabulous in every way, courteous, friendly, always asking if we needed anything and the same for the restaurant and bar staff including the chef. We were treated like royalty and it is truly a 5 star hotel. We stayed in a deluxe suite on the fourth floor.
The hotel itself was fantastic with its large rooms with a beach view to die for from the large balcony and it is extremely clean everywhere, there was always someone cleaning around the hotel. Their amenities where excellent, free Wi Fi, 2 pools, 2 restaurants, great breakfast and great cocktails at great prices. The location is at the South End of Patong far enough away from the noisy night spots, but close enough to all the shops and markets. We enjoyed it that much that we will be back next year to be pampered by the Bliss and relax in comfort.

We stayed in the suite section and the rooms are very nice.

Good points are thespace offered,balconies,huge jacuzzis.

Bad points are the incredible hard beds, poor quality towels,no DVD player in room and poor choice of TV stations ( It rained several days so TV or DVD would have been nice ).

Room service food OK but nothing special.

Staff were quite friendly but not in the usual Thai way, not sure why.

Overall a bit more thought and some extra attention to detail would make this a great hotel.

Room Tip: New wing.
