Reviewed 3 June 2013

Only ate breakfast at Seacono but did so a twice as reasonably priced & food was good for me and my Thai partner. I just had the standard English style breakfast but there was enough & it was tasty so no complaints. Partner had the usual Thai, vegetable/noodles, seafood curry soupy thingy & steamed rice.

I had done an online booking in one of the Hotels (APK) at phuket which was horrible so moved out next day and checked into Hotel SeaCono.
Location wise its very close to the bang-la street. Rooms were nice and cozy , build quality is good and most importantly the rooms had 42"LED with Wifi and Skype connection.
The swimming pool located at the terrace was also good. During the evenings there is a mobile van(Bar) which gets parked outside the hotel which was fun.
Overall a good hotel for the amount you pay for the stay and the facilities you get in return.

Long story short -
Pros - location, free and good wifi.
Cons - no closet, no space in bathroom for things, not clean, ants in bathroom, Internet connection (not wifi) in the room is terrible and mostly did not work, tv channels are mostly in thai, breakfast (that is ordered with the booking) is dull (only egg) unless you pay more, staff is uninterested or unwilling to help except one.

Now the long story - we stayed here for 5 nights. in the first room the computer worked but the internet (not wifi) failed once every hour. we did not have hot water and it took 3 days and a lot of screaming and waiting and screaming until they got us into another room. The second room had ants in it and the computer did not work at all. We decided hot water was more worth it and let it go. Again - no closet, barely space to put stuff in bathroom, we thought we could unpack for 5 days but we couldn't so we lived out of our bags.
So don't bother coming here.

Moved to Sea Cono after a horrible experience at nearby Apsara Recidence (word of advice, do not stay there).

The rooms at Sea Cono are pleasant with a nice modern decor, big noce beds and a more than decent bathroom. All rooms also have a computer with camera for Skype and a television (lots of good channels but poor signal in the room i got), i believe many will appreciate this. There were also bathrobes, large towels for the pool, in room safe and a nice minibar with nice prices. Had no problem with wifi, worked all the time but a little slow at short period if times (since all rooms gave Internet i guess many use it).

I choose a room towards the back to avoid noise. The drawback is that there is absolutely no view and no balcony. You can also choose a room toward the road with a nice view and a balcony, however as it face a busy road some noise have to be expected.

My only problem with this hotel were very loud israeli guests (seemed they had arrived in arge groups) who would knock on doors and yell in the gangway continously from 3 am until 6 am. I can not fault the hotel for this, but it was annoying.

The waitress in the restaurant is golden, extremely friendly with good service. The guy in the reception and the cleaning staff were also very nice and good at their job. A girl at the reception need to calm down a bit even when guests are unreasonable. She entered into a very loud argument with a group of israelis. I do understand her frustration as the group were unreasonable, but she began to be very loud herself telling the group to basically leave. Doesnt look good for all the other guests waiting to check in.

I paid 2300 baht for high season. A bit much maybe but i needed a room fast after moving from another place on short notice. Had i made a reservation earlier i would probably been able to save a few baht.

In the category "budget hotel" this is however a great hotel. I would not hesitate to stay here sgain a the room were nice, the pool were great and overall the staff were very good. Location were also very good.

For the price this is probably one of the best hotels I have stayed at in Thailand
Good wifi free, TV and computer combo in room, good restaurant with reasonable prices downstairs
The room was compact and has a small veranda smoking area, which is great no smoke smell in the room.
The street was a little noisy but not too bad.
The bathroom smelled a little but had really good facility's
The bars in Bangla road really come alive around 9pm, and is quite amazing to see.
Costs in general are dearer than Bangkok, by probably 20% to 30%
A Taxi from the airport will cost around 650 Baht, and a shuttle 150 Baht per person
I got conned with the trips to Phi Phi Island and James Bond Island, don't book until you arrive at Patong beach and shop around the real prices are a lot less than the advertising

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear of the hotel will be quiter

Booked after reading good reviews but we actually left very disappointed. I have never been somewhere (and been traveling for a year!) were the staff are so inept and rude. When we arrived they claimed not to have our booking. We showed them our booking reference and our confirmation email however the woman actually had the cheek to say to us that we where lucky to have been allowed to stay as she would usually refuse to let people in without a paper copy, explained that the online confirmation was the exact same thing but she didn’t listen! We waited an hour to get in, no apology. The room wasn’t even ready at 9pm at night.
They don’t take a note of the rooms with breakfast included instead they give out breakfast tokens. One day we forgot ours and it was made into the biggest deal ever. Eggs tasted off and we had a sore stomach the whole time we where here.
Wifi is rubbish. Broke down every day we where there and I continuously had to ask to get it fixed.
It’s a shame as the rooms are quite nice, TV has good channels and the shower is great but the staff really let it down, in saying that however the man that fixes the wifi and the young girl who serves breakfast are lovely.
We are now in a hotel down the road for half the price but just as nice...look around before booking this hotel, you will get better.
