Blue Ocean Resort
Ranked #44 of 337 Hotels in Patong
Reviewed 21 March 2012

I´ve stayed in a number of hotels in Patong over the past months and in line with my policy of only submitting to Trip Advisor when I have something to say (ie either commenting on a disaster or a very pleasant experience) ... well here I am again on a thorough recommendation.
I read some of the below comments about the hotel being situated next to a very nasty, smelly river. Well, the river is, in fact, a creek and is tidal. No getting away from it that the smell is overpowering but, hey, this is Thailand and poor people do tend to throw their faeces and old rubbish wherever they can. This is not Royal Tunbridge Wells. Tourists must adapt.
So, APART from this little set back (and many Patong hotels will be situated next to dodgy drainage or smelly outlets) I can honestly say that (as long as you keep the windows closed ... which you normally would because of the air con) then this has to be one of the most pleasant, cost effective stays in Patong.
The hotel is two years old though looks newer. The room (I had 711) was absolutely spotless. With modernist architecture (nice shower room) and a central consol which controls effective a/c and all the lights you could think you were in a 5 star hotel. Comfortable bed and crisp linen added to the feeling of quality.
I´ll mention specifically the marvellous brekkie which served Thai food, great fresh bread and cakes. You can ask the chefs to cook bacon and eggs and chicken sausages (better than they sound). I reckon this is the best Patong hotel brekkie you can get but be sure to have it included in the room price otherwise it costs.
Position wise, very convenient for the best (quietest) part of the beach and near to some very nice bars and restaurants. If you insist on hitting Bangla then you have a 15 minute walk. The staff were great and I noticed they were training a large number of newbies whose number one lesson must have been Smile!
I got the room on a last minute deal ... 1600 baht for two including brekky and taxes. Booked direct. Well worth the money in my books. Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms overlook the swimming pool and the smelly creek.

We booked a superior room and got an upgrade to a pool access room, which was fabulous! The room is very spacious, and well decorated. One of the things my girlfriend loved the most was the 3D painting hung on the wall. We were told by the staff that it was frol North of Thailand, and even bought ourselves one! The staffs are very friendly, polite and very service minded. Always willing to help - we always loved the nature of the Thai people anyway! This was our 3rd trip to Phuket, however it has become much much busier the last time we came. The peacefulness of the location of the hotel did make up for it though. If we ever come Phuket again, this hotel will be our stop! :D

We were enjoying Patong and the resort so much, that we even cancelled our trip to Krabi, and extended our stay for four more days until we returned! Excellent staff, Great service, and great touches to the designs of the hotel. We (husband and me) loved the atmosphere and lighting around the pool area so much. We’d sit there every evening during happy hour, sipping wine. We have already made a booking for next year as we already are sure of our return!

Took this hotel for 4 nights due to the reviews on trip advisor. I was disappointed. We were greeted by the strong smell of the sewer right outside the hotel. If you are in the pool, you smell it. While you are trying to eat your breakfast, you smell it.

Location, it's okay. Ten minutes closer would have helped. I wasn't thrilled by this either.

Breakfast, good but get there early as it does run out. Made to order omelet is great.

It's really a 3 star hotel trying to be a 5 star place. Rooms are large, complimentary water is nice, pool is good and well lit. Finishes are a bit guady, it's like they tried too hard. There are better places, try courtyard or burasari.
