Blue Ocean Resort
Ranked #42 of 331 Hotels in Patong
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Recently we stayed 5 nights at this very nice facility in the Patong Beach area and found the hotel to be well loctaed being close to shopping, dining, tour operator booking agencies etc while set back about 15 minute walk from the noise and activity of soi Bangla.
The facility had all the ammenities required for a restful stay including a spa, fitness room, tour booking desk and a well maintained pool area with adequate shade umbrellas and lounge chairs, a lovely dining and quiet bar area poolside. Breakfast was included in our stay and offered a wide variety of Thai, European, North American foods and beverages and the staff were very polite and accommodating to special requests and kept the area very clean and well stocked.
Rooms were large with excellent quality bed and linens for restful sleeps and had a bar fridge for using hotel supplied items or storing personal purchased items in. The cleanliness, A / C and water temperature and pressure were all excellent quality.
The only negative we expeienced was a drainage canal beside the hotel that filled and emptied daily and had sewage odours that occurred depending on wind direction. We noticed this same smell in many locations throughout Patong.
The main point of difference at this hotel is " Caring Staff " at all levels under the direction of the hotel manager ( JJ ) who roamed inobtrusively amongst guests offering assistance and local advice with a smile. He assisted us personally on several occasions which we truly appreciated.
We would stay here again and recommend this hotel to Phuket , Patong Beach travellers.

We've stayed at this Resort for three weeks and it was fantastic. The hotel is located out of the way from the noisy and crowded aspect of Patong Beach but easy to walk there if you so desire. It has a very good pool which is kept in perfect condition at all times.Our room on the fifth floor, was kept to a very high standard of cleliness ; the staff always showed us their expression of velcoming signs by surprising us, almost every days, by placing very creative artistic works from manipulating the daily supply a towels and flowers. The room had a lovely view of the pool area and a nice view of the of the hills surrounding Patong. The staff, under the guidance and supervision of the Manager by the name of J.J., are always composed, beautifully calm and always keen to help in anyways you need.
In a nut shell, our 20 days stay there was an absolutely fantastic experience and we are already talking about our next trip in Thailand.

Room Tip: As far as we know, all rooms are facing the pool enclosure, however, the northern aspect of the reso...

The staff at the blue ocean are extremely friendly and accommodating. The rooms were spotless and cleaned every day. Ideally situated - short walk to the beach and about 10 min from the main shops. Will definitely be going back

We stayed here for 3 nights as a family group of 3 couples. Check in was smooth and the reception staff spoke English quite well. Two of our deluxe rooms backed onto a smelly canal with a camp of residents living in tin shantys. The third room, also deluxe, was very dark as the sliding doors looked out onto a wall with a painted mural which allowed very little light in and smelt musty. The pool was quite small for the number of guests accommodated but was still appealing. The breakfast was very good with a lot of variety on offer so I cannot understand the comment about being Thai food only. We did not eat dinner in the restaurant therefore I cannot comment on the food. Our rooms were large and clean and the bathroom was huge. It was an easy 10 minute walk to the beach and the start of the roadside stalls and eating places. A tuk tuk ride to Bangla Road cost 200 baht for the six of us. We were only in Patong for shopping and to see a few attractions including The Fantasea Show (recommended) so we were rarely in the hotel but I would stay here again because it was good value for money with friendly staff in a relatively quite area of Patong.

Room Tip: Room 408 and below are in a corner and have a large wall in front of the balcony. Room 403 had a la...

My dad won a poker tournament recently and the prize included 7 nights stay here. Me and my boyfriend had already booked a holiday to Thailand so dad have us the 7 nights free accommodation to use. We were greeted by a lovely lady who was very helpful and spoke great English. She said that they were very busy and the hotel was only 2 years old, our first impressions of the hotel were good.
We were shown to our rooms which were a good size, fairly spacious with a king size bed and nice balcony area too. They were tidy rooms but I wouldn't say clean, the bathrooms were pretty bad with scum around the plug hole and I don't think the drain in the shower had been cleaned since it was built! Altho the rooms were in a lot better condition compared to the public areas, the corridors were covered with mould because the rain would drip from the roofs inside when it would rain. The staircase was also prone to flooding if there was heavy rain. What concerned me the most was that the carpark under the pool would have constant drips coming from the roof line and some of the plaster had pealed off, it didn't look healthy or safe at all. The hotel looked very poorly built and not maintained at all.
The location was ok. It was a close enough walk for us to the beach and main strip, it took about 20 min stroll to get in the main part of town which we didn't mind too much. The bad part about the location was it is right next to a river, other reviews said it smelt and all that which I didn't find, but its definitely not pretty. I would suggest if your staying here ask for a room on the beach side and not river!
The food wasn't great, we love our Thai food but after eating at the restaurant once said we wouldn't go back. We ordered 2 tom yum soups and a pad thai and they managed to get 2 of the 3 wrong.. the staff didnt speak english well at all and wernt helpful in correcting the order. Breakfast was standard, nothing amazing but eatable.
All in all I think that because we got the trip for free we put up with it but if I had have paid I wouldn't be happy. I have been to phuket 6 times now and comparing it to other places I have stayed in, this would be the worst. I believe it's a 2.5 star hotel and would recommend to stay somewhere else unless you don't mind a hotel that isn't amazing. Looking at what they charge per night you can get a lot nicer hotels for the same price and I wouldn't go back again... Even if it was free!

Blue ocean resort is a nice hotel the location is not very far away from Patong. Beach about 10 minutes walking but it is safe at night ,the room is very comfortable , big, modern ,clean ,the bathroom is spacious ,clean
The breakfast is not international only Thai with no varieties at all so we decided that there is no need to wake up every day to join the breakfast ,there is 7 eleven mart next to the hotel so u can anything from there easily
Overall the hotel is ok but next time we can stay at any other hotel on Patong beach with the same price
