Recent guest reviews
The hotel is located overlooking Patong Bay and the views are amazing. The hotel's staff are helpful and informativeand the food was out of this world. The highlight for me is the view (see attached pic) If you go to Patong, stay at this hotel. It's great value for money.
The staff here are as warm and welcoming as the weather. We had a great time here relaxing and the hotel was close to everything. Some magnificent views from the breakfast bar and the rooms with 3 great pools to choose from. I do recommend this resort.
I went to this resort with my family on a holiday. I stayed in a premium delux room on the 3 rd floor and as my view was not as good as I thought I asked to be moved to the 4th floor which the staff did without any hassles or problems. The view from my room wAs fantastic. The rooms are clean, the bed comfortable and the staff, well what can I say about the staff nothing was too much trouble. They were just lovely friendly people. The breakfast was buffet and was quite nice. You can also have your eggs cooked fresh. I went for dinner at the resort only one night and I ordered sate chicken and omg it was tough but the rest of my family said their meal was nice. The only downside to this resort is the 92 steps I tackled every morning for breakfast. I could have taken the car up but I wanted to get fit. After all the not so good reviews I read before I went about this place I was quite pleasantly surprised. I WILL return.
Booked this resort without delving into it, through Jetstar holidays. Location was a 200 Baht tuk tuk ride from the tourist hotspots of Bangla Road. A little more information from the resort staff would have saved me a lot of pain. I wasn't aware that transport was available from my room to the breakfast buffet. 130 stairs to negotiate each morning saw me dreading breakfast time. Add about 50 stairs to reception, added to my discomfort. Then there was the steep descent from reception to the road below, painful. The breakfast buffet was very mundane. Same fare every day. Overall, there seemed to be a maintenance problem. A large slab of ceiling collapsed outside our room. I had noticed the water dripping from the section that fell, each time we passed. Our room was great. Rooms with a better view were on offer for a higher price. I was satisfied with where we were, being very close to one of the swimming pools. After voicing my reluctance to return in September, management graciously refunded the accommodation package I had booked with Jetstar Holidays. And on production of a medical certificate, Jetstar credited the flight segment as well. For a younger, more mobile tourist, I can't dismiss this resort.
First off I read a lot of bad reviews about this place before coming here and now that I have stayed I have come to the conclusion that all of them are just fat /old /didn't do their research about this hotel .Yes this resort isn't for the handicapped,lots of stairs but I didn't mind the workout :) breakfast is good ,the views are good(if you're facing the ocean ,happy hour is great ,we even had a little pet cat while we were there we would feed it everyday (by tropics restaurant)service is great .Mauricio is a hard working guy and so is the other bartender in the top pool bar .for the price this place is amazing ! Would definitely book again .btw I'm 31 from Southern California so I'm not no snotty person ,I'm a down to earth person that knows how to be grateful .oh and just watch out for the Chinese they are the most annoying and rude people
Actually, It is the second time that we(my wife & I) stay in Centara Blue Marine. Excellent customer service/wonderful sea view room/swimming pools and great breakfast etc.. those are the reasons that why we choose it every time. Centara Blue Marine like a home. The staff like a family. The porter always stay there and smile to welcome you back. Day by day... This time we want to say thank you to 2 peoples in Centara Blue Marine. They are Mr. Phu and Miss. Kes. 1. They are so nice to talk with us about our first time visit feedback about the room type and experience. Also give us the recommendations for our this time trip. 2. Outstanding and professional service skills. When they talking with us they also finished the check in process. Selected a room we preferred before also explained change room process to us clearly. 3. Mr. Phu and Miss. Kes also provided us more details about the Hotel services like free bus to Jungceylon/ gym/ local mart details/ bus to Phuket town details…those made us a great vacation as well 4. They completed them in less than 15 minutes from we arrived at Hotel Lobby to our room. They are really excellent staff to make the customer love Centara Blue Marine more. No bad comments for this time Please do better and better We love Phuket we love Centara Blue Marine as well. hopefully we can visit Phuket twice very year and stay in Centara Blue Marine the whole holiday there Best Regards and Thanks Shenglong Li
Had an amazing time at Centara. Started with a little issue because the card reader for the door stopped working when we were out of the room, (No ones fault). But we were locked out for about hour and it was going to take longer, the management upgraded us from a say standard room garden view to a Pool Side, Ocean View with a Spa built into the balcony. The staff were always friendly there was nothing they wouldn't do with a smile. They all loved working there as l got to know a few of the members of the staff. Beautiful 3 pools, wonderful breakfast. Each of the 3 pools had a different Happy Hour ( hours) so we went from pool to another and another. Rooms are nice and big and very clean. l would stay here again no problems at all. There are 3 van trips to the main part of the town each day with pick up.
Excellent value for money, exceptionally friendly staff, fantastic buffet breakfast. Great hillside location only about 100 meters to the sea. Breathtaking panoramic view from our balcony. I would definitely stay here again!!
For a sight unseen booking I was totally satisfied with this resort.......Aircon played up a little however ALL STAFF where very helpful and accommodating, nothing was a trouble, really enjoyed my time here, bug spraying was ok, it was very quick! don't agree with all the other negative comments!!
Absolutely no handicapped accommodations. No Elevators. No ramps. No hand railings. Built on a very steep hill. If you cannot maneuver steps you are stuck in your room. The golf cart will let you out at the restaurant and then you have to walk down four flights of very steep steps!! How will you climb them to get out. Do not patronize this place until they update for disabilities. Vacation ruined. Room flooded from air conditioner. WiFi did not work. Television did not work.
