“Go for it for its location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013 via mobile

Nice hotel located right at the end of Patong beach, away from the hustle bustle of Patong area, but still walking distance from everything.

All rooms face the beach (diagonal view) and they have a new wing as well facing the beach.

The breakfast is a bit of put-off, you can find a lot of options around the hotel area.

We were welcomed like long lost friends by the Manager and staff when we returned to the Bliss for another fifteen day stay in a third floor suite during October 2013.
The position at the South end of Patong Beach is quiet, across the road from the beach, and within easy walking distance of Bangla Rd and Jungceylon shopping centre.
The suites are of a grand size, with a large shower and two-person spa, next to the deck off the ample bedroom, overlooking the beach. The view is great.
24/7 concierge desk, manned by friendly and helpful staff, two pools and restaurant with bar on the beach, all added to a wonderful stay.
However, while the breakfast rooms are delightfully set up and well staffed, the variety of offerings does not vary, detracting from the otherwise four star experience.
We will return in the future.

Room Tip: For a little extra per night, a suite far exceeds the amenities of the standard rooms.

I stayed in a superior seaview room and was happy with the room and location close to the beach,the pool area was easy to get to and always clean and the staff fantastic,especially the housekeppers and breakfast staff.The room has a wonderful big bed even though a little firm which seems to be the norm in Thailand and the bathroom excellent. its far enough away from all the noise of bangla rd but close enough for a good walk especially after a big feed of thai food ,,which brings me to the hotel food,,the room service food is excellent and nicely presented and priced,,the breakfast is okay but my thai girlfriend found it not to her likeing..hotel room prices we,re very reasonable around the july august time and I will look forward to staying at the bliss again..

Room Tip: 3rd and 4th floor superior seaview rooms are great,,but if you can afford more stay in a suite seavi...

STayed for eleven nights at this hotel, a pleasant place, we had a deluxe suite on the 4th floor. Upon check in we were notified that the room we booked was not available until the next day, they offered the suite for a discounted price and we have to be honest the suite on the fourth floor was much better than the pool suite which is what we originally booked.

The pool area is fantastic and really peaceful. Breakfast was included in the price and was ok although the same thing every day. The spa in the room although looks appealing the water was very very smelly and full of dirt or what ever it was......minimal hot water and poor water pressure.

Very clean room great size fridge and bed was enormous and comfortable. We experienced a lot of rain on our stay, the Bliss hotel lost all power for around 12 hours, no hot water, no light, no air conditioning nothing. I know it was not there fault but what an inconvenience. Upon check out the room was checked and I do not find a problem with this, however we did have a taxi waiting and a plane to catch.

All in all it was a nice stay however would. NOT return to patong ever again.

Room Tip: The deluxe room on the fourth floor is high recommended, the views are awesome. The location is also...

We stayed in the normal hotel room for 7nights and were very pleased with this resort. Room was modern, bright and all rooms have sea views. Bed was too hard for our liking. Great verandah and room was cleaned well. We found the staff very good especially the staff at the front restaurant where you can buy great cocktails for 80bht. We swam in the pool closest to the road, always very clean and we were the only one's there most of the time. Breakfast was adequate. Great location,quiet but still very close to the action of Bangla road. We had no qualms about the room being checked on checkout.

I enjoyed staying in the hotel throughout my 2 nights here, until the following unhappy incident happened just before we checked out (which is why I rated it 3-star only).

If you intend to stay in this hotel, please note that when you check out, this hotel requires you to wait til they have checked your room for any missing items/ minibar consumption. This is such a primitive and inefficient way of doing things! I've booked a taxi for my early departure (7:15am) and we went down to the lobby right on time, with the taxi already waiting there. However, the delay happened when the front desk staff (Ms. Tammy) insisted that I wait til their staff has checked my room. I told them I needed to leave and asked them to charge my credit card if they found anything missing (which I'm sure I've taken nothing from the room) but she insisted that I can't leave. To make matter worse, the stupid staff has got my room number wrong and she has probably went to check the wrong room! When I told them that I was rushing for my flight, Tammy offensively said 'you yourself came down late for the taxi'-which I was not! I feel that the management really need to do something about this. If mistake is made on your part, the least you should do is to offer apologies, and not making groundless, offensive remarks to your guest. To me, this is absolutely unacceptable.

Having said that, we have encountered some very professional staffs on our first day. We booked a fishing trip through the hotel and they promised to send the receipts plus tickets to our room in a short while. However the tickets failed to reach us as expected. The staffs made it a point to constantly follow up with us and explained to us that the delay was due to the fax machine was down. We accepted it and appreciate their regular follow up. So, clearly there is a gap between the service quality of the hotel staffs here.

We stayed in a superior suite on the 2nd floor. The suite was very spacious, and tastefully decorated featuring a cozy living room with a writing table, a bed room with timber floor, a huge bathroom with a spa ( jacuzzi tub) and a lovely balcony. The was a pantry with fridge but it was barely equipped. No cutlery was provided. The sea view from the level 2 balcony was unfortunately partially blocked by the bundle of cables and trees. I think level 3 or 4 will offer a better sea view (but those are deluxe suites). There is also free WIFI in the room. TV channels are quite limited, but I'm ok with the English channels. It would have been better if there is TV channel list provided.

The breakfast was served on the 2nd floor every morning starting from 6:30am. The breakfast place was quite nice. Food was ok --pretty standard continental breakfast. Besides, Thai style fried noodle, rice and soup are available too.

The hotel is 50-min drive away from the airport. We arranged for airport pick-up with the hotel which cost THB800 (must pay by cash), but taxis are easily available at the airport too. Location wise, it is situated at the quieter end of Patong Beach. There are plenty of ATM and money changers around. Restaurants, convenience shops, massage, pedi and mani shops are all within walking distance. All in all, I'm happy with the suite but the management need to look into improving the standard of service for some of the staffs.

We got the pool access room on the 2nd floors and really loved our stays there.The hotel is a awesome location, just far enough to not be disturbed crazy night out crowds. Frontage beach and near all the happening places within a short walk. Friendly staff very helpful, comfortable, immaculately clean and spacious deluxe room. So Loved everything about this hotel, will be back real soon!

Room Tip: Deluxe pool room ...perfect for honeymoons or couples
