“Great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2012

The hotel was very welcoming, clean and friendly. Loved that it was far enough away (about 5 minutes walk) from the thick of things that meant it was quiet. The 7 elevan just by the entrance was very handy.

The rooms were large and well appointed with a huge balcony. But the best thing was the shower, certainly not water saving!

Certainly stay there again

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor for the view and to avoid mozzies

This resort is great, you will love it.

Firstly, we are in PATONG, over-populated, full of tourists, minimum government spending. The place stinks, everywhere you walk it stinks. Yes, there is some tidal creek thing next to the resort that stinks too but, get over it, you're in Patong, Thailand! The benefits of the resort make it a-okay.

Our room (pool access) was clean, neat and tidy with some kinky architecture features (blue light shower with look in "window"). The room overall is modern with a central console controlling air conditioning and the lights (you could think you were in a 5 star hotel) and is just plain fun! The bed was comfortable and had crisp linen as well as the most luxurious pool towels I've ever seen! The room also featured a lovely "lounge bed" which was perfect for book reading.

Breakfast was delicious, I over-ate every day! Thai food, pastries, cakes, yogurt and various hot food choices (including Indian). You can ask the chefs to cook bacon, eggs and sausages.

We thought this resort was close but just far enough away from the main strip along the Ocean Front. If you insist on hitting Bangla Road (must be seen!) then you have a 15 minute walk to get there, but if you walk along the Ocean front you'll find plenty of shopping along the way (it's about a 5 minute walk to the start of the Ocean front / beach). A Tuk Tuk is only 200THB from any where on the Ocean front back to the resort, just pay up if you're feeling a bit slack.

It's also near to some very nice bars and restaurants. The place next door (about four shops further away from the beach, just past the 7/11) has a big sign out the front, lunches for 79THB. This place is super quick, clean and the meals are reasonable size (trust me, you don't want anything that large after the Blue Ocean breakfast) delicious and you can order cheap juices or smoothies to accompany the meal.

Thoroughly recommended and hope to return!

Room Tip: We were in 209, Pool Access. This room was in the corner (great) and not a long walk from reception...

I´ve stayed in a number of hotels in Patong over the past months and in line with my policy of only submitting to Trip Advisor when I have something to say (ie either commenting on a disaster or a very pleasant experience) ... well here I am again on a thorough recommendation.
I read some of the below comments about the hotel being situated next to a very nasty, smelly river. Well, the river is, in fact, a creek and is tidal. No getting away from it that the smell is overpowering but, hey, this is Thailand and poor people do tend to throw their faeces and old rubbish wherever they can. This is not Royal Tunbridge Wells. Tourists must adapt.
So, APART from this little set back (and many Patong hotels will be situated next to dodgy drainage or smelly outlets) I can honestly say that (as long as you keep the windows closed ... which you normally would because of the air con) then this has to be one of the most pleasant, cost effective stays in Patong.
The hotel is two years old though looks newer. The room (I had 711) was absolutely spotless. With modernist architecture (nice shower room) and a central consol which controls effective a/c and all the lights you could think you were in a 5 star hotel. Comfortable bed and crisp linen added to the feeling of quality.
I´ll mention specifically the marvellous brekkie which served Thai food, great fresh bread and cakes. You can ask the chefs to cook bacon and eggs and chicken sausages (better than they sound). I reckon this is the best Patong hotel brekkie you can get but be sure to have it included in the room price otherwise it costs.
Position wise, very convenient for the best (quietest) part of the beach and near to some very nice bars and restaurants. If you insist on hitting Bangla then you have a 15 minute walk. The staff were great and I noticed they were training a large number of newbies whose number one lesson must have been Smile!
I got the room on a last minute deal ... 1600 baht for two including brekky and taxes. Booked direct. Well worth the money in my books. Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms overlook the swimming pool and the smelly creek.

We booked a superior room and got an upgrade to a pool access room, which was fabulous! The room is very spacious, and well decorated. One of the things my girlfriend loved the most was the 3D painting hung on the wall. We were told by the staff that it was frol North of Thailand, and even bought ourselves one! The staffs are very friendly, polite and very service minded. Always willing to help - we always loved the nature of the Thai people anyway! This was our 3rd trip to Phuket, however it has become much much busier the last time we came. The peacefulness of the location of the hotel did make up for it though. If we ever come Phuket again, this hotel will be our stop! :D

We were enjoying Patong and the resort so much, that we even cancelled our trip to Krabi, and extended our stay for four more days until we returned! Excellent staff, Great service, and great touches to the designs of the hotel. We (husband and me) loved the atmosphere and lighting around the pool area so much. We’d sit there every evening during happy hour, sipping wine. We have already made a booking for next year as we already are sure of our return!

Took this hotel for 4 nights due to the reviews on trip advisor. I was disappointed. We were greeted by the strong smell of the sewer right outside the hotel. If you are in the pool, you smell it. While you are trying to eat your breakfast, you smell it.

Location, it's okay. Ten minutes closer would have helped. I wasn't thrilled by this either.

Breakfast, good but get there early as it does run out. Made to order omelet is great.

It's really a 3 star hotel trying to be a 5 star place. Rooms are large, complimentary water is nice, pool is good and well lit. Finishes are a bit guady, it's like they tried too hard. There are better places, try courtyard or burasari.
