I'm from South Africa and had planned to have my wedding in Phuket at Naiyang Beach, We were going to spend a total of 10 days in Phuket so decided to spend a few days at patong Beach.. After reading some of the reviews decide to book at the blue ocean resort. Being my first time to Phuket and a group of 20 people i was a bit worried about the type of accommodation.. It's a bit of a drive from the airport and as you driving to the hotel some of the surrounding hotels look a bit questionable. When we arrived at the hotel it surprised us.. It looked totally amazing, reception by staff was welcoming and check in didn;t take too long considering we were a big group. We had booked standard rooms but they were lovely and spacious, clean and had everything you needed. even had a lounge where you could wath TV and use the internet and free Wi-Fi
there are lots of shops and massage parlours around.. With regards to prices you just need to bargain a bit especially as it is a tourist area. the beach is literally not even a 10 minute walk. We had a super time enjoying the water sports.
The only down side is teh language barrier as it's hard to communicate with hotel staff but they were all very helpful and friendly.
There are lots of eating places around but the best was teh one next to the 7 eleven just as you come out of the hotel.. The guy was so helpful and understands english perfectly and altered the menu to suit our requirements.
An overall great experience
