Reviewed 20 December 2012

I re-visited this hotel after 12 months and it is still very good, clean, modern and well managed. The price is considerably higher than last year which doesn't make sense as it wasn't busy at all. The breakfast is good but make sure you get a package inclusive of breakfast (if you can wake up early enough to enjoy it). A few cracks are beginning to show and they had to move me to another room because the safe wouldn't work and the shower flooded. They tried to down grade me to a smaller room which shows the inexperience of the reception staff. I stood my ground and got upgraded. Unfortunately the Jacuzzi on the balcony spewed out lukewarm rusty water.

Room Tip: The Jacuzzi rooms look west over the pool and beach beyond

We (couple) actually stayed here for 2 weeks. The first week was so good we booked through agoda for the second week. We looked around at other hotels but in the end decided that B-Lay Tong was the best option.

The hotel is very modern in design. I liked this, but others may prefer a more 'Thai' feel. It is situated at the northern end of Beach Rd, across the road from the beach. This is about 10-15 minute walk to Bangla rd but there are not too many shops for about half the way and so there is less hassling to buy.

The rooms are big and bright with a king size bed, day bed and small balcony. The bathrooms have a rain shower and a nozzle hand held shower head. The shower is very big and has plastic wood-like slats on the floor and glass walls. There is also a shelf for the toiletries.

The rooms are made up every day with clean towels and sheets if you wish. There is also a free mini bar and free wifi. The beds are superb, not hard at all. The sheets are above hotel quality. The TV had a few 'snow' issues but who goes on holidays to watch TV. There is also a complimentary drink at the front bar each night of your stay.

Our first week was spent with 7 others all staying at the B-Lay Tong. We had 4 rooms on the third level. The staff arranged this for us after one phone inquiry from Australia just before we left. These were great rooms, close to the pool and breakfast room and with lovely views over the garden and towards the pool and ocean.

What makes B-Lay Tong the great place to stay is of course the staff. All Thai peoples are friendly but the staff at B-Lay are fantastic. From the minute we checked in to the minute we checked out 2 weeks later, they couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. We would like to thank everyone for the best holiday, just some of the staff I can remember, Oh, Da, Mon, Tee, Tam and Mai in the bar. Mor, the executive manager, was fabulous.

Room Tip: All the rooms appear to be great but I wouldn't want a pool access room across from the main poo...

Location
Location is ideal for those who prefer a quieter part of the beach as it is situated at the north end of Patong. We rented a car and so had no problems getting to Jungceylon, Bangla Road and other parts of Patong. Hotel has complimentary car parking.

Great Value/Service
- Free Wi-Fi
- Free mini-bar (replenished daily)
- Good breakfast, waitress remembers the type of tea I like!
- Free drinks daily at the bar
- All staff greets you with a smile and show initiative to provide service and assistance

Room
- Grand Deluxe Room has a giant jacuzzi in the balcony. There is also partial seaview for those on the top floor.
- Enjoyed the jacuzzi so much that we did not even go to the pool or beach!

Conclusion
- We have stayed at hotels of similar prices in the past (M hotel, Banthai etc) but B Lay Tong is definitely the best.
- We look forward to our next stay at B Lay Tong or Novotel to enjoy the benefits of Le Club Accor membership

Room Tip: Grand Deluxe Rooms on 4th floor has seaview and jacuzzi in balcony.

The Jacuzzi in our popular Grand Deluxe room can be used as a mini private pool :)

This hotel has it all. We had a massive room with massive bathroom inclusive of full bath separated from shower. You have a day bed inside the room to lazy off, the slick concrete floors are a wonder for your feet. The king bed is massive and very comfortable. The equipment of the room is spotless with an iPod alarm clock/sound system. You also have a free mini bar that will be replenished once a day (coke, sprite, beer, water, fanta and juice).
The hotel is very modern, clean and beautifully decorated. The infinity swimming pool on patong beach is marvelous with a bar accessible from the pool. The sun loungers are extremely comfortable.
The restaurant is very good and fairly priced. The breakfast has it all, from sushi to continental or American breakfast to Thai.
In addition you get a free drink voucher to the bar per night stay. On sunday there even was complimentary Mexican food on offer for the aperitive.
The spa offers great service for a fair price after the 40% discount for In-house guests. The spa staff is adorable and fully committed to a great experience.
The location is great as a bit away from the rumble but still close enough. The beach is right in front of the hotel with a crosswalk.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms around the pool and get one on a high floor. The ones with ocean view all have a spa. Th...

This hotel is perfectly located - just far enough away from the centre to allow you to fully relax and escape the noise and crowds but close enough to be part of it (10 min stroll along the beach front).
Its thoughfully designed and the rooms spaciouus with a free minibar. The pool with its infinity edge gives a great view of the beach. There are lots of different public spaces; restaurant, cafe, lounge, library, 2 bars, nightclub gardens and pool deck - which you wouldnt normally assoicated with a small 'boutique hotel'.
Staff are really helpful, I would stay here again.

The only point worth noting is the gym is tiny. Cardio: a bike, treadmill and stepper. There is also a single multi function resistance machine together with a very limited set of dumbells (16kg is the heaviest). Its fine if you want to do 20 mins cardio, any other sort of a workout and I suggest going into town.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms above the outdoor bar sound travels up into the rooms. To be fair it only starts at abou...

One of the best hotels I have been to in years! "It's the little things that count" and that is exactly what this hotel is about. The facility is decorated with impeccable details consisting of amazing art pieces, colorful furniture, an art gallery, and an awesome infinity pool. The accommodations were superb; my hubby and I came to stay at this hotel after our wedding and we were pleasantly surprised when we walked into the room with flower petals in a heart-shape on our bed, nice touch! The hotel also offers rooms on the ground floor that has direct access to the private pool. The dining is a MUST try--the complimentary breakfast is the best I've ever had and the restaurant makes the best food in Phuket! The location is great because it is directly across from the beach and near to all the shopping and bars in Patong. My overall experience was unforgettable and I will definitely be back.

Stayed at the hotel from the 12th till the 16th in December. A little rainy in Patong but still an excellent holiday.

The hotel is about 10 minute walk from the action at night but there is a nice beach across the road.

The staff was excellent and therefore the service was good. Their breakfast was reasonably priced.
