“FANTASTIC ANNIVERSARY STAY”
Reviewed 21 March 2013

We choose Patong to celebrate our special wedding anniversary. Being also involved in the Ezy Stay/Scoopon debarcle, we were absolutely thrilled we decided to continue to keep our plans to stay at the Blue Ocean. Thanks to JJ an his professional staff the plans went ahead. From the start of our stay there the personalised and friendly service provided by the staff was top class. Staff like Zaffar, Judy, Di Di, Muma (the cook) etc etc. Our 7th floor (clean & spacious) room was great. Especially the double shower, the views of the local hills area and the pool. After the wake-up morning swims we would look fwd to the large selection of breakfast choices and having talks with the staff incl Manager JJ and our new friend Zaffar. The special efforts put in by the staff to help celebrate our anniversary with bed decorations, flowers, fruit & signed card was very much appreciated. Highly recommend the hotel cooking class - thanks to Zaffar & cooks. Hope to stay again and highly recommend this Resort. Hello to all from Ray & Denise.

Room Tip: Our pref is high level with poolview

Hi fellow travellers, my brother in law and i have just returned back to australia after spending 6 nights with the welcoming staff and JJ < resort ceo > at the blue ocean. Heres the deal. Great location , very clean and cool rooms < i looked at 3 rooms on my arrival > would have stayed in any of them. The breakfast suited us two aussie dads down to the ground.... we found ourselves filling up on two or three servings. Very pleasing to see clean plates, glasses and eating utensils. We hired scooters during our stay and parking them at the resort is no issue and no cost. 24 hr reception is good to have , always security visable on returning to resort no matter the time. Oh eat in on a wednesday night all you can eat BBQ. Love wednesdays $10 au.

Room Tip: I looked at 3 rooms before checking in , i settled on level 4 no 15, this room had two tvs not that...

Blue ocean is a great place to stay, it is centrally located, our room was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool was very refreshing after a long day shopping or sightseeing and we always managed to find a deck chair! We spent most afternoons chatting with other holiday makers around the pool and enjoying cocktail hour (buy 1 get 1 free 5-9). The breakfast buffet was always plentiful and the poolside and room menus had a good range of foods at very reasonable prices. Although having some language barriers between the locals, the staff were patient and happy enough to work through it till we were satisfied. We also had a little splurge at the spa room and the girls there were of top standard.The reason for the 4/5 is, although beyond the resorts control, is the nasty smell coming from the creek bed lying next to the resort.
JJ (manager) and Zaffar (bar manager) I commend you both for your high standard of customer service!

Room Tip: 504 has a larger balcony, pool view and late afternoon sun, I would definitely request that room aga...

Dear Beloved Guest of the Blue Ocean Resort,

Thank you very much for your lovely review. Thank you for your positive comments on our facilities like the restaurant and the spa. We are very sorry for the inconveniences caused by the canal next to the hotel. It is a problem that Patong has everywhere and we hope something will be done about it soon. We also hope to keep on maintaining and improving in other areas that we can control to make up for this small inconvenience for our hotel guests.

Once again thank you for your great comments on our resort and wish to welcome you back again.

Best Regards,

The Blue Ocean Team :)

Booked this hotel for a company retreat of about 50+ pax.

Location – Excellent, very near to Patong Beach with plenty of shops / eateries nearby
Rooms – Excellent, clean, spacious, comfortable with power shower (However, some rooms were not ready during our check in)
Restaurant – Good but staff ought to replenish the food quickly. Lobster soup tasted weird
Activities – This hotel’s fairly new, so they do not have any team-building activities. However, we planned some games on our own and hotel was able to provide the props with minimal charges
Function Room – The hotel has an indoor function room which can be utilized for meetings / briefings
Massage – Awesome, the Olana Spa’s great with nice ambience and worth the 50% discount during our stay. Try the hot stone massage!
Miscellaneous – There is a pushcart in the hotel lobby selling tickets to Phuket Fantasea, Simon Cabaret, Phi Phi Island, etc

However, if you are a budget traveler and wish to get cheaper massage, just cross the street and there is a small massage parlor just opposite the hotel.
Next to it, there is also a small booth selling tickets to Phuket Fantasea, Simon Cabaret, Phi Phi Island, etc (which is a tad cheaper than the hotel if you bargain, of course / at your own risk)

Pawan was very helpful and patient in attending to our queries while assisting us with the lodgement, transportation thus making our stay a lovely and enjoyable experience. Will stay here again if I’m traveling to Phuket. Thumbs up!

I have been to this hotel a few months ago with my boyfriend. The service is absolutely impeccable and its is incredibly relaxing and silent even if strategically located in the heart of Patong so you don't miss anything. If you want to relax but at the same time enjoy Patong this is the best place to go. The staff is professionally trained and it is the most hygienic venue I have ever seen in Patong, very few places in Thailand (if none) have given me this feeling of hygiene like this hotel! I strongly recommend it!

Room was very clean and was super impressed with the bathroom and shower. Has a door inside the shower that rolls back so you see inside the room.. A little weird but very unique. Love the big windows in atrium so that you see down to the pool and the river. Pool was very green looking. Staff was very friendly and spoke English well. Hotel was located at the end of a busy part of Patong and it was nice to be away from the crowds but still close enough to walk. Overall loved this place

Thank you to the Blue Ocean Resort management and friendly staff for a great 10 day stay. We thorougly enjoyed our holiday and the facilities the hotel provided. Our room was large (You could have swung two cats with no worries).The king size bed was very comfortable and all the room lights and air condition control were at your finger tips.,The bath room was so large (you could have held a dance in it).The showering system was great (Two choices while showering either of the wall or the ceiling).Room service came in handy when we were exhausted after a big day out.The food the hotel provided was tasty and had a vast variety.

Room Tip: Room 385 at front of hotel was very good
