We've just returned from a wonderful holiday in Patong where we spent six nights at the Seaview. What a delightful hotel! Everything about it is excellent, from the location to the friendly staff. Patong is renowned for its lively and noisy nightlife, and this hotel is at the "quiet" end of town, but a mere ten minute walk to the shops, nightclubs and bars. Across the road is the beach - pretty and not very busy. The hotel itself has two wonderful swimming pools with waterfalls, fountains and jacuzzi-type bubble areas. Both the pools and their surrounding areas are kept spotlessly clean. Friendly but unobtrusive staff were always about keeping the place tidy, bringing out fresh towels and so on.
Our room was enormous and beautifully maintained. Of course most people don't go on holiday to spend all their time in the room, but it is nice to come back to such a cool oasis of calm after a hectic day out and about. The room was cleaned and tidied every day, fresh towels appeared and four bottles of drinking water were provided too. The bed was huge and very comfortable. From the little balcony we had a lovely view of the sea and overlooked the hotel's Spirit House!
Breakfast at the Seaview was delicious and plentiful. Whilst I didn't bother with a freshly-made omelette (though they looked great and my husband says they were scrummy, I feel I can eat omelettes in England!) I made the most of the fresh tropical fruits. Mango, pineapple,watermelon, papaya, pomelo, lychees, dragon fruit and more, all freshly sliced and peeled. The platters of fruit were replenished regularly too. Other items on the breakfast buffet included western favourites like croissants as well as eastern dishes and noodle and rice-based dishes. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying the spread - there was something for everyone.
Every member of staff we encountered was polite and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble and every request was handled efficiently and with a smile.
Some reviewers have commented on the lack of free wi-fi. Instead of whinging you can walk five minutes to the nearest bar or restaurant - most have free we-fi.
Would we return to the Seaview Patong? You bet! It's a lovely hotel, very well run and very well situated.
