Stayed here for 10 days in July 2012. We booked a room for 3 and the room was totally mindblowing. Clean room with a large balcony overlooking the pool. Maybe one of the best room ive stayed at. The down side was the river outside with a rotten smell, but hey, you get used to this since the smell is all over Patong...

The lobby and surroundings is also great. Clean and nice. The staff were very serviceminded and had an eye for us all the time. Scandinavian hotelbusiness should really learn something from the thai people when it comes to service!

Location was great. Good autentic restaurant just outside the hotel for a cheap prize. 5-10 minutes walk to the beach and a little longer to the Bangla road. But if you wanna go to Bangla road, take a Tuk Tuk that cost.....nothing.

The only downside is the look of the hotel outside. For a good hotel like this, the outside interiour looks nothing like an cheap hotel. Hidden gem, hidden gem.

We are a Norway family at 4. (2 "children" one at 17 and 20 years still with us).
we like to move to different plases and try different hotells. We have traweld at christmas and new year for the last 15 years.
When we say :
Blue ocen resort is simply the best up too now. Its because of this :
You feel you are comming in a big nice smiling family. And you are ! Service, kindlynes, food, breakfast, price etc. All is very good. The staff is very nice !!!!
The hotell is placed so lokal, but not noisey. If you have room at the pool-side it will be the best.

Room Tip: Best room is heading too the pool.

Recently I attended a conference in Phuket. I booked through a travel agent in Melbourne, Australia to stay in this hotel. After leaving Melbourne at midnight and enduring 12 hours flying via KL I arrived in this hotel only to learn that there was no booking about my accommodation. The staff informed me with good reasons that I should pay cash. After complaining to my travel agent in Melbourne about their incompetence (I had already paid the travel agent about my accommodation), the travel agent quickly emailed the hotel and asked the hotel to charge my accommodation to their credit card. One would hope this would be the end of my ordeal. To my horror, the hotel staff (2 of them) through thier inexperience would not accept the assurance from the travel agent. Subsequently JJ the manager was consulted. JJ quickly arrived and greeted me with a friendly smile and immediately informed me that verything was fine. I was so relieved and happy for his understanding and leadership. JJ was very helpful and professional during my 3-night stay.

JJ invited me to join the Christmas party organised by the hotel on 25/12/12. It was the best Christmas dinner I had ever had for a long time. The venue surrounded by a stunning swimming pool was beautifully decorated. The memory of the sumptuous food (too much to eat), Thai traditional dancing, very friendly cooks, waiters and waitresses will forever stay with me.

The hotel itself is a decent clean 3 stars hotel. Located at the end of Patong, more quiet than central Patong. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The pool is just ok... Breakfast is so so. On the minus side, there is a "klong" (small canal) located behind the restaurant area and the odors are sometimes quiet unpleasant. Service is pretty nice and efficient.
Why only average rating then? Well, I went there during the Christmas holidays, which is the peak of the high season. Phuket has become extremely popular and the demand is higher than the offer. As a result prices completely skyrocket and are disconnected from the reality. We paid approx $200 per night for a standard room including breakfast. it worth max $50-70 for this level in Thailand. All hotels in Phuket and in Thailand apply crazy and unjustified prices during the peak season, so maybe I should not blame the Blue Ocean Hotel. But sorry this hotel does not worth at all $200 per night. At this price, for this level, this is a rip off! By the way, all Patong and very soon all Phuket will only be a big tourist trap.

Against advice, we decided to stay in Phuket, a very tourist-filled, young, loud, night-life scene. However, after a very "rustic" stay several days prior, we were more than happy with accommodations at Blue Ocean. We arrived late in the evening and were warmly greeted and handed shirley temples (great first impression). Our room for 3 people had a poolside view and was very spacious, clean, and modern, with a huge bathroom easily fitting all 3 at once (major plus). The hallways have some wear and tear but not a big deal for me personally. The hotel is a bit set inward from the main road, so it was nice we couldn't hear the noise of the street, which is good because I am a super light sleeper. The street you are on has several street vendors and restaurants to choose from. Massages were promoted as 50% off, which was maybe 100-200 baht more than the street massage places on the street (about 5-10 on the same street within 5 min walking distance), & if still 50% off, def go with the hotel because it is infinitely better in experience & quality. Breakfast was included in our stay & was a good selection of Western & Asian mixes (Indian, stir fry, noodles, rice, congee, breads, potatoes, etc). By the second day however, we were a bit sick of it, but nothing is really open, so you are best sticking to this before you head out for the day. We booked our scuba day trip here, which was way faster & cheaper than any airport options. The beach is about a 10 min walk, but very crowded & touristy...best to lounge at the hotel or go to a more northern quiet beach if you don't include any excursions on your trip. I would give this place a 4.5 star & would highly recommend IF you have to stay in Patong. If you don't enjoy loud, nightlife, you might want to stay at a different location.

Room Tip: Get a poolside room!

Looks really good from the outside compared to buildings nearby. Nice reception area. We stayed in a superior room with poolview for 3 weeks dec-jan. The room was big and clean. The double shower (rainfall and normal) was really handy. Easy to control the aircon and lights on the controlpanel next to the bed. 3 english channels on the TV. Big and comfortable bed. Good roomservice. Free Wifi. Free scooter parking in the garage.
The restaurant had good food with very nice waiters and bartenders.
Good pool, really clean toilet and shower next to it. Had the best new years eve celebration at the rooftop (not open to guests normally). Small resort, so we made many new friends among the other guests and staff. Very little negative to mention, but some of the staff could use some basic english lessions. And the women in the reception could use some more training in customer service.
Read here about the "smelly" canal next to the hotel. But never got the smell on our balcony or in the restaurant.
Quiet location, about 5min tuktuk ride to Bangla, 2 min walking to Hard rock cafe or the beach.
All in all we had a really nice stay there with only minor "thai problems".
If you have some issues just ask for JJ (resort manager), he will take excellent care of you.
