Blue Ocean Resort

Reviewed 31 October 2011

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.

Room Tip: pool access rooms were great

We decided to stay here after reading trip advisor reviews for 17 nights.
Booking was made over the internet, direct with the hotel and I was given good rates and transfers. We did muck them around a little, as some of our travel companions dropped out at the last minute or we had late additions, but it was no problem.
Check in was a little slow due to the language barrier, but given we know very little Thai, they did a brilliant job. The staff were always welcoming when they seen us with a big smile and a warm Thai hello.
Our rooms were fabulous, with comfy beds (some beds in Thailand are like sleeping on cement). Nice bathroom, flat screen TV, great air con and a balcony that overlooked the pool.
There is a causeway behind the hotel, which is a bit of an eyesore and there has been much written on TA about it, but really, its not big deal. You get the occasional waft every now and then, but it certainly doesnt stink or detract from the hotel.
Breakfast every morning was great and made so much better with the wonderful & friendly bar staff who always had a giggle and a smile for us all. Food was great, fresh fruit, eggs cooked the way you liked them and the selections varied from day to day. There was never a day that there wasnt good food for breakfast.
I was a little dubious about checking out after almost three weeks, thinking what sort of state the bill would be in. It was no problem at all. Everything was in order.
Overall, I would stay there again in a heartbeat. The staff certainly made this hotel even more wonderful. Clean, professional, friendly and a great price. What more could you ask for?
We will certainly be back!!

Room Tip: Book it!! You wont regret it.

Family of four had two adjacent pool rooms for four nights on the pay three stay four special. Nice , well maintained resort, very quiet and suitable for family as away from sleaze of Bangla Road which is 15 minute walk or 150 baht taxi away.
Kids loved the pool access rooms and there was a band outside for happy hour.
Gorgeous shower room with rain and normal heads, my husband wants one at home.
A good option for price with good tv, bed, cool air conditioning and nice breakfast.

Room Tip: Pool access rooms are a great fun choice, step straight from balcony into pool, but still private an...

Stayed here for 5 nights in October 2011 in a deluxe room. The hotel is about a 5-10 min walk to the heart of Patong (either the beach front road or the ??Ceylon Shopping centre). The rooms were almost new and very nicely designed with very modern decor. The bathrooms were great with a full size spa tub and rain shower. I had a king size bed with a full size flat screen TV. There was a balcony with some chairs out there that overlooked the pool and nearby river. Overall, noone should be disappointed with the quality of the rooms for the price you pay. The breakfast was an added charge for me (200 baht) and was nice and had room service on one occassion and this was nice. My only complaint about the room was no wifi in the room. There was free internet if you could connect by wire or there was free wifi in the foyer. In the days of Ipads and smart phones this was disappointing and wouldnt have cost must to upgrade. Again you can't complain too much if you are paying $50-70 a night.

The only reason I am taking one star off this review was the female front office attendent on the final morning (5th October) who delayed my checkout by not knowing how to work the credit card machine. Fail.
