About a block from the beach, an encellent hotel at a reasonable price, considering the location. Clean, modern, with all the amenities you would hope for. A live band in the afternoon was awesome.
One word of caution - and it may have been an aberration - the single drink I ordered at the bar - Bombay gin on the rocks (as a request for a martini was not understood by the bartender), was completely watered down. I was surprised and disappointed, but did not say anything as I did not want to come off as an obnoxious American.
Sinced I declined to order a second drink, I can not say if this was usual practice. I hope not - too nice a hotel otherwise.

My husband and I and another couple stayed here the first week in February. The hotel is nice, they have a nice pool, there is a decent breakfast included in the morning, free water in the rooms. The hotel is only about a 10 to 12 minute walk to Patong beach and the main shopping and party area. There are lots of places to get snacks and water and beer right around the hotel. It is kinda nice being a little way away from all the hussel so it was nice and quite to sleep at night. The bed was great, probably one of the better ones that I had slept in the whole time I was in Thailand ( we where there for 3 weeks). The shower in the room was amazing, two separate shower heads and tons of room, I am not sure what room exactly room we had reserved but we booked it on Agoda.com and payed about 90 dollars American. There is always cabs around and tuk tuks to get to the other beaches as well. I would for sure stay here if I ever went back to Phuket however I am pretty sure I won't ever go back to Phuket due to the nasty smells and the heavy tourism.

Stayed at the Blue Ocean resort a while back with some friends and had a reallly really good time and felt like i neeeded to share this.

The room is very modern and spacious, you can control all the liights from your bed, a big LCD screen in the room and the best part...... pool access!!! WHICH WAS SUPER AS WE JUMPED INTO THE POOL FROM THE BALCONY!

Location wise it is also good, 5 mins walk to the beach and other shopping areas such as the OTOP shopping centre...

We stayed at Blue Ocean Resort with our 2 year old grandson and family and cannot fault this hotel in any way. The deluxe rooms were very clean, and had everything you could ask for- beautiful comfy bed was one. The staff were excellent and just loved Tyler (our grandson). The position was fantastic as we didn't want to be near the noisy areas, and only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach. The management should be proud of this hotel and what they have achieved in such a short time. Your staff are very well trained, friendly and helpful. We will be back.

We stayed at the Blue Ocean Resort and loved it. We didn't love Patong (the touts ruin it) but we made the best of it at the Blue Ocean. The hotel itself is very clean, very modern, and very new. The room (Deluxe) wasn't as big as I thought it would be but still very spacious with a huge balcony. Not the best view in the world, but if you can snag a pool view, you won't be sorry because the pool is beautiful.

We loved the extra large bathroom, hot tub, and rain shower. The room was very modern and the beds were comfortable. Some reviewers had a problem with the service, but we only encountered smiles; everyone we dealt with was very pleasant and yes, they spoke English.

Breakfast was okay. We stayed at lesser hotels where eggs were made to order, whereas at the BOR, eggs were premade and served room temp :( Also, only on the first of four days did they serve bacon. All the rest of the days ham was served (yuck!). Don't even get me started on those little hot dogs that they call sausage (but that was everywhere in Thailand).

Finally, the location was perfect. Very close to the beach and all the hubbub, as well as all the essentials (travel agencies, 7-11, drug stores, laundry, restaurants, etc.).And with the exception of a nearby massage parlor and taxi/tuk tuk drivers, you can actually walk around near the BOC without being hassled to buy DVDs or a suit.

Though I wouldn't return to Patong, I can understand the attraction. If you do go, stay at the Blue Ocean.

We stayed for 9 days in a deluxe room overlooking the pool & restaurant area. Very quiet and relaxing. Breakfast good and service excellent. Staff all very friendly and helpful. It is just 5 minutes level walk to the beach or town centre. We would definitely stay here again.
We met our family from Brisbane here --- they stayed in a poolside access room. This would be well worth the extra is you wanted to use the pool a lot.
