A good stay. The location was on the main strip of Kamala with easy access to the beach and sea. Really close. The hotel is small so caters only for a few. There are no major facilities, such as breakfast or swimming pooi etc but what it is, is a very clean, roomy and airy room in an excellent location. The service was also great, getting a mobile from the owner in case of emergency. Also, the cleaner does a great, great job.
“Very good ”
Good location, nice spacey room, very kind staff
The apartment is in Kamala beach is very close to the beach: just 1 min, it's visible from the room.
The apartment is really nice: in a nice new building close to supermarkets, atm, restaurants. It's spacey, well decorated, with a nice balcony..
The staff of the hotel was amazing: they were really kind and nice, always available and reachable.. They gave us a mobile phone in order to call them in case of any kind of problem..
Next time we will be in Phuket I'll come back there for sure.
“Excellent Place to Stay”
Location, facilities and staff
This is my 3rd stay with Kamala Sea View, would highly recommend this hotel for anyone traveling in Phuket, it is a nice location, big rooms, and has very friendly staff.
“Awesome hotel with great and kind staff and owner.”
This hotel has a very very nice and accomodating staff, hotel is near beach front of kamala. A nice place with great food choices and sea view. I will definitely recommend this. The room is also big
Superb! We love our stay here.
“Stayed here for a few days with a friend.”
It was about a five minute walk to the beach
This hotel is good for an overnight stay. It is close to the beach but it is not on the beachfront.
There is no breakfast option and there hardly was anyone on duty at the front desk.
Very no frills type of place. Good for an overnight stay only.
“egregiously overpriced--just a basic Thai apt!”
near shops and restaurants, somewhat convenient to beach, large room
Note: I have stayed at probably 50 hotels booked through Agoda and reviewed most of them. I rarely post anything this negative.
What you get a hotel is relative to the price you pay. I live in Thailand and have stayed in many dozens of hotels over the years. I know the market and know when a hotel is a particularly good deal or bad.
I booked this "hotel" based on its full price of ~$100 and a discount to around ~$50 ($67 including taxes). I expected something I expected something FAR NICER than a low quality Thai apartment. The listed full price (which I did not pay, but is supposed to be a reference point) is egregiously misleading--no one would ever pay that price, not even at New Years. This means my "discounted" price is also completely misleading.
The "Kamala Sea View" does not have a sea view and is not on the beach; you have to cut through a row of shops and it's not as convenient as the map indicates, although only a 5 minute walk. Once actually in Kamala I saw other hotels of the same price or less with better
The room is large but very basic. The air conditioning didn't work right one night, there was no soap at the bathroom sink, the bed was poor quality, and the walls and balcony door do not keep the road noise out from outside. All night I heard motorcycles and drunk people going by.
Given the inflated prices in Phuket these days, this place is worth THB 1000, not the 2x this I paid.
“good value for money ”
central location, large comfortable rooms, easy access to everything
My wife and I spent 5 days around xmas. We liked the place a lot. The owner has to be mentioned seperately: outstandingly helpful and friendly young lady, very good english skills! It's more an apartments place than a hotel - no restaurant, no staff around, kitchen area inside your room and a provided cellphone to call the owner for any need. Rooms are cleaned every day, 7eleven is right next door, 250m walk to the beach - there are some very cheap real deal local restaurants on the main road. We will go there again!
“Clean Hotel, Good Location, Great Trip Advisor Zen”
Zen (Very good Trip Advisor), Location, Clean
Very good Trip Advisor Zen, Close to the Sea, Clean Rooms, Good WiFi
“A little beauty!”
Close to the beach, large clean room and quiet
1 minute walk to the beach, quiet at night but still a few bars and restaurants around. It's not party central like Patong so it's nice for a few days break and the beach is pretty decent. The manager (or daughter of manager) was super friendly and even attempted to arrange our onward journey.
