Our family of 5 had 11 wonderful days at Karon Beach. Following that we had 4 days booked at another location to finish off our Phuket holiday. We departed our second location 2 days early because it was so disappointing. We tried to get into several other places for the last two nights but none were able to accomodate us or didn't want to accomodate us. We then tried the Blue Ocean Resort as it was one of the original hotels we were considering based on the great reviews on trip-advisor.
Blue Ocean had two side by side rooms (couldn't provide inter-connecting rooms but at that stage we didn't care) and I asked them to hold them and said we'd be there in an hour. From the moment I spoke to their staff on the phone I knew that we had made the right choice. When we arrived they greeted us by name and made us very welcome.
We were given two pool access rooms and they were nothing short of spectacular. This is one very cool hotel, very well appointed with modern decor and technology, free wi-fi and the bathroom/shower alone is almost reason enough to stay there.
Breakfast was good, lots to choose from and the pool is brilliantly illuminated at night. The mini-bar prices were very reasonable too. Having live music poolside is a novel idea but with all due respect to the singers, you really need to find some better talent (and maybe drop the volume down a tad).
Blue Ocean Resort is well located if you like Patong but can get a bit overwhelmed by it at times. Plenty of market stalls, massage places, restaurants and bars nearby but far enough out of the really mad parts of patong. A great spot if you have kids and/or teenagers.
We'll be back for sure.
