Overall a very nice hotel with a very nice staff. Clean and everything works well. Good prices and not far from the city center, perfect for kids. Two pools with nice resting areas. Close to the beach way but not disturbing. 50 meter to the beach and the water, the beach is not very nice for bath at that place, you need to walk closer to the city center to find parasols and chairs.

Stayed: October 2013, travelled as a couple

Our second time at sea view and it will be our last. This was a major disappointment from our first visit 2 years ago. Our check in process was SLOW. There was only one lady at reception, the other gentleman was off with what he said was his managers. How can the hotel manager leave guests waiting while staff show them around. The lady on reception was limited in the amount of English she could speak. Only when the other gentleman arrived back did our questions get answered. We had seen the pool access rooms on our last stay and wanted to stay in them this time, so we payed the extra amount of THB 1000 per night to be able to stay in this room. The one bed side was full of hair, the bathroom also had hair on the floor. We called the front desk who sent a manger who arrived promptly with housekeeping. We showed them the hair and after much apologizing we were told that the room would be deep cleaned the next day. Well that never happened the next day or on any of the other days of our stay. We wanted to use the beach towels provided but when we took them out the bag they were damp and had that mouldy smell on them and had holes. The linen in the room was OLD and yellow also full of holes. Bath towels were the same holey, frayed. After more days of an unclean room and a bath that you could not use because it had a massive leak in it. We again called the duty manager to our room. When we asked for some sort of refund on what we had paid for the room we are offered a better room upstairs. Now considering that you have to pay an extra THB 1000 per night for our current room, how is it that the other room is better. The handle for the patio door was DIRTY and did not look like it had been cleaned in months, and the door was broken to point where it was off its hinges. For the duration of our stay the door was never fixed, nor the handles cleaned. The actual patio was only cleaned once in our entire stay. The breakfast was a major disappointment, the range was not like it had been before. We ate the restaurant a few nights and the service from a FEW staff was excellent the rest were not up to standard, and the food was very good. The staff at the poolside bar were very inattentive, and hardly ever around. If you wanted anything you had to go and look for them as they were more often than not ducked behind the bar counter. It is sad to see how far this hotel has fallen in 2 years, considering all the hotels that are there and are been built you would think that Sea View would up its game. For those looking for a hotel in Patong, you can do allot better than Sea View. Despite asking to speak to the hotels Owner we were never given that chance despite promises that he would be phoning us.

We stayed again at the Seaview Patong, and while many familiar faces had moved on to new challenges, the level of service remained excellent. Those who had been at the hotel when we last stayed two years ago greeted us like old friends.

The restaurant is enjoyable (although it's possible to find slightly cheaper meals elsewhere) and the pools are beautiful and beautifully maintained. The beach is literally across the street; be aware that this beach is well known and tends to be more crowded than other, equally lovely beaches, in Phuket. This hotel is close to the famous Patong Beach area that is noted for its lively (even rowdy) night life. We belong to the too-old-to-party crowd, and the Seaview's location on the edge of the action assures a serene atmosphere for us while making the club-and-party scene readily available for the young and energetic.

Hi,

This is our second time we have stayed at this resort, and everything is just as good as it was two years ago. There is nothing that they wont do to make your stay one to remember. Wanita, the foods and beverage manager is awsome, ensures that you are well taken care of. We recomend this resort with a well deserving 10 out of 10.

This is the third time we have stayed at the Seaview and we will definitely be returning. Ms Wanida, the manager, caters to your every need and speaks to you everyday. The food, service, pools & view are superb. It feels more like a family trip than an international holiday as all the guests pick up on the staffs friendly service and are in turn friendly as well. It is within walking distance of the busy shopping area, but also at the far end of the beach so you have privacy and peace. We can't wait to return.
