We checked in to this hotel approximately 2:00pm. As we started to unpack our bags, we noticed our room had a strong musty odor. We checked the bed and it had a large yellow stain on the mattress pad which seemed to be where the odor was coming from. We asked to change rooms. We started to inspect our next room before we unpacked. We found our 2nd room had tiny bugs all over the top blanket of the bed. Although the staff were very friendly and accommodating when we asked to change rooms, we were too disgusted and checked out later that afternoon. The Ramada recently bought this hotel and we feel they only rehabbed a portion of this hotel. Ramada South Sea has potential in that it is directly across from the beach and the lobby & pool appear to be nice, but the rooms need a drastic improvement. We do not recommend this hotel.

Wonderful Welcome at the Ramada South Sea.....Rooms were nice and clean! Pool is very nice but hot tub isn't hot. Staff is very nice, but does not speak English very well. Outstanding Free Breakfast....nice Beach and very close to the action in Karon Beach....Restaurants (try Red Onion and seafood restaurant directly across the street from Red Onion) and massages....Around $7.00 USD for a 1 hour foot massage. Kata beach is not far away and is also very nice. Not too far from Patong if you want to go, but much quieter.

I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed my stay. From the front desk staff to the cleaning crew, everyone was extremely courteous and helpful from the minute I arrived. The hotel is located in a prime location right on Karon Beach and plenty of local restaurants serving fine Thai food are within a five minute walk. The room was amazing and as great as the pictures you see online. The pool was refreshing and the massage/spa was fantastic. There was even a small courtyard with books to read. The hotel also offers transportation to and from the airport at a very reasonable price. I would definitely return and I recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room tip: Get a room surrounding the hotel pool; preferably on the first floor.

We stayed there for 3 nights with family (4 adults, 2 kids) and had a mixed experience. The location of the hotel is a definite plus - far from the maddening Patong. Other positives are the room sizes, can easily accommodate 3 people (the sofa is more like a small bed).

Now the bad parts, Staff - were on and off good and bad. They somehow didnt understand much and everytime you asked them for directions, suggestions, you got a blank. The guard at the gate was similarly always trying to "sell" you a taxi at inflated rates. The housekeeping was awful - we saw used cups left without cleaning all the 3 days even after repeated reminders. Pool is good but very small. Also, guess the chemicals used is a bit strong vs. a normal swim pool.

Overall, can stay if you are single or traveling without family.

Room tip: Ask for connecting rooms when booking - they help you when traveling with family

Whenever my wife and I are in Phuket - we stay here. In particular, we like that Karon Beach is a little quieter and relaxed than Patong and the South Sea is very well placed close to the main restaurant strip. The rooms are sizeable and reasonably appointed without being spectacular. The hotel's website puts the property in a very good light, but to be honest there are better properties for the price. Movenpick next door for a similar spend looks a better option. The restaurant is dull - but remember there are plenty of options close by - a tip - try the 'Red Onion' on Patak Rd. All in all, a reasonable property and I always enjoy my stay.

Room tip: Rooms to the rear of the property away from the road are a little quieter - but further to walk.

Overall I had a nice holiday. Not sure this hotel was really worth the cost.

Great location across from the beach. The lobby of the hotel is breezy and very pretty. The staff were very pleasant, albeit not helpful at all. Several times we inquired with the staff about some local things (bus info, restaurant names, etc. - they were not able to answer any of our questions nor did they try to find out for us). When we go there we were shown three rooms. The first room the bed was broken. The second room was really must smelling and the a/c didn't work. The third room was suitable, but the toilet leaked and there was no hot water. My friend had to inquire about hot water three times.
I inquired about an iron but was told i had to pay for the laundry service. The hotel charged for wifi and the connection was spotty. Several times my friend could not log on. Again, she had to inquire at the desk several times.
The pool area was very nice, but the pool water had a strong chemical smell. The gym was advertised on the website and looked quite nice. Quite a different story in person. Most of the equipment was broken, including the t.v.
Pros- each room is provided with a beach bag which was very nice. We were able to get an extra one so both my friend and I could use one. Each day after the beach/pool a hotel staff would show up at our room with dry/clean towels.
I can't comment on the food as I didn't eat at the hotel restaurant as the prices were ridiculous.
Overall this hotel has a nice atmosphere but not really worth the money.
