We looked for a sea side hotel, near to the center, given the price we choose this. Thanks good we booked only for 3 nights as our room was looking for the back of anohter hotel. This means that from the 'balcon' we could touch the wall of the neighbour hotel. We had a 'sea' view throug the electricity point. The noise of the air condition was terrible. The hotel was no full booked at all so they could find a better room, I guess. The pool is about 40-60 cm deap so useful for kids only. However the staff was very friendly and helpful.

From our arrival to the hotel, up to the day we left everything was perfect!! Really nice hotel, nice room, friendly staff!! Although it was not at the center of town we had so good time there that it didn't bothered us.

Booked online with no problems. Top floor with beach front balcony room. Awsome view of whole of Patong beach. Not much traffic but close to tuk tuks or motor bike taxis. You can also hire a car with driver to show you around. We used Mard 08788 99788. He was well priced and speaks English. Hotel staff very good and remember your room number when picking up key. Beds fantastic , lots of places have rock hard beds. Will stay again.

Room Tip: South side is away from street traffic but no views. Beach front balcony rooms are best.

Hotel is located at the southern end of Patong Beach and most areas of the town are quite accessibe from the hotel. We stayed for a week and were quite lucky as we had a spacious room on the 3rd floor with a view of the beach. Ensuite bathroom facilities were very good with bath and seperate shower. It was clean and well serviced each day. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. We attended an obligatory presentation during our stay but there was no pressure to buy or become members. Our representative , Stefan, was quite helpful and gave us some useful local information for our holiday. There is an indian restaurant beside the hotel, which was quite good and we ate there on one occasion. We opted to eat in various other restaurants uptown on the other nights.
There was a taxi service right outside the hotel and we hired a taxi for most of 1 day at a very reasonable cost to see the sights that we wanted to see and at our own pace.We also negotiated a good price to take us to Ao Nang beach near Krabi on the other side of the bay as we were going there for the next part of our holiday. It was a 3 hour journey but the taxi was comfortable with a good driver and we didn't feel the journey.

Room Tip: Look for room with sea view , its worth it

Our room was so dreary we never unpacked our case, instead I sent an email to our booking agent Diamond Resorts to complain and eventually we got moved to a fantastic hotel JW Marriott Mai Koah beach.
We had requested to move rooms at the Sea Pearl but because we weren't Absolute members nobody was interested. The hotel was full of sales persons for timeshare Absolute do not get sucked in.
The hotel is basic grubby depressing nothing like the photographs. There were only two sunbeds around the minuscule pool you couldn't see the sea due to advertising for timeshare. Thankfully we only stayed two nights.

We are members of the Absolute and recently took advantage of a generous offer of an extra week at the Sea Pearl. We have always loved Phuket and the staff there are like family, no exception this time. However, the room we were initially allocated was not anywhere near our expectation, but quickly remedied. However, we are unlikely to return as we found the whole environment of Phuket a bit overwhelming and high pressure - right from eating breakfast where taxi/tuk tuk drivers lined the fence waiting for business. Even while swimming in the pool there were people trying to sell sunglasses over the fence. Relaxing on the beach was impossible with a steady stream of hawkers demanding a sale, and they would not take no for an answer, until we became rude in our responses. It was very obvious that the low season and recession have caught up with the businesses in Phuket, as they were on a mission to sell and you could not even stop and browse without getting pounced on, especially from the taxi drivers, tailors, and stall holders. Even walking down the beach side exposed us to hassles from the hair braiders, massagers etc. I found it very tiresome and made our holiday much less enjoyable than we had looked forward to. The quality of the shopping is still good, but a lot harder to get the true value as many of the traders started the bartering process off way too high - it was easier to walk away than work the price down. There are still many good points, and while the Absolute Sea Pearl is under renovation at the moment, it is getting a little tired and in need of a good spruce up - the staff however are wonderful, and the girls in the massage parlour downstairs good fun and a good way to spend an hour or two during the day. The pharmacy downstairs was also kept busy with lots of tummy bugs, but the pharmacist is excellent and very helpful. One other gripe we had was the scouts on the motorbikes promoting the Absolute chain - when you refused to take one of their "scratchies" which leads to a 90 minute promotion of their properties, they were quite rude, even though we were already members. I think it might be sometime before we revisit, but I can definitely recommend the Absolute Club and will seek other destinations in the immediate future.

Room Tip: Members have access to the beach view rooms, but the staff are very helpful and will do what they ca...

Hello taumanu,

I was very pleased to read your review of our resort and that you enjoyed your stay with us.

The constantly increasing commercialisation of Patong brings with it added pressures and I can assure you that the local government is aware and attempting to regulate some of these activities.

We are just about to start to refurbish the pool area and our plans will prevent these very persistent hakwers from accessing our guests.

your point regarding the scooter scouts has been passed to the managers of the timeshare operation for action as these incidents do nothing for the company reputation.

Thank you for taking the time to put your review fro all to see and I do hope that you will give Phuket another chance soon.

We had a week at this hotel and one of our worst holidays ever ,only went for a relaxing week as my other half had a knee operation and we wanted to take it easy around the pool taking in some nice warm sunshine, NOT to be , got polluted with cigarette smoke from time- share chain smoking sales people, even going to breakfast in the al fresco we had to put up with the pollution as these people did not give any concern for other hotel users. The only thing going for the place is the location , right overlooking the beach. Our room had a filthy view of a derelict old building 2mts away and looking down from the balcony a rat infested waist area . GIVE iT A MISS.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view ,, you might get lucky , if not give it a miss, also take a smoke mask.
