By The Sea had beautiful views! Staff are so friendly and helpful. The restaurant was delish and cheap. Rooms have everything you need I spent most of the time taking in the views from the balcony. Taxi rank just down the road to help you get around. Also daily free transfers to Phuket town. I loved it there. It's peaceful...

We are in our late 60's and have just returned from a 5 week stay at By-the-Sea, Phuket, Thailand. The negative things that we had read about from earlier Trip-advisers are no longer accurate. The beds and pillows are excellent - I never pined for my bed at home.  The rooms (big bedroom, living area/TV, eating area and kitchen) are spacious,...

We stayed here for 3 nights in March, as part of a travel package. It was an excellent choice for us. We did not want the night life of Phuket, and this hotel was right on the water on the "quiet" side of the island. We were able to swim in the pool or in the sea as much as...

Got a decent deal on Expedia for this hotel, which is situated right on a nice sand beach with great views across the bay and a stellar sunset. Ok, low tide shows the mud flats but at high tide, lots of people swimming. There are a few restaurants on the beach, which serve cheap beer along with cheap food. BUT,...

There is not a single thing we could fault with this hotel. We booked our room through a groupon deal and found it to be the greatest value. As young first time travellers, we where seeking a quiet and relaxing getaway. By the Sea was the perfect choice, situated on a quiet private beach. Our room was huge with airconditioning...

When we landed in Phuket we used the registered taxi service to get to the hotel, which cost 600 bhat and took an hour (the driver did get lost twice). If you are considering hiring a car, don’t ! The volume of low power motorbikes and crazy drivers is a recipe for disaster. The property is on the largely undeveloped...

We live in the country in Canada and therefore, appreciate peace and quiet when we are travelling. With only 36 suites in the entire hotel, By the Sea was the place for us. We can’t say enough good things about the staff who go out of their way to please their guests. The staff was always courteous and met our...

The beach is shallow and not clear so snorkeling is out of the question. Although it is a good place to lay out and read or just relax. The one downfall is that the hotel restaurant dumps water in to ocean where people swim. They also provide free kayak and bicycle rentals. Would recommend that the cheap plastic chairs and...

I recently stayed here with my teenage daughter. Sensational view of the beach and bay. Clean, spacious, comfortable. Daily breakfast very nice with variety of foods. Staff are the highlight of this place. All so friendly and helpful. Always happy and went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. A bit out of the way but...

We enjoyed a great stay at By the Sea. The hotel is beautifully situated in the peaceful Cape Panwa overlooking the bay with an amazing view. The rooms are spacious and very well kept and the free wifi connection in the room worked great. The staff were very helpful and friendly and offered a great service in every way.
