Long stretch of beach, good on a sunny day. The sand is more rough than patong and kata. Nice to walk

We love staying at Karon Beach which is so much quieter than Patong and family friendly. Lots of great restaurants, entertainment without the sleazy side. Friendly people and all you could need. Lovely beach with a little surf.

Our trip to Karon beach was okay. The beach wasn't spectacular but it was crowded with families. It is cleaner than Patong Beach. The sales people at the open air market or stores do speak English.

Good location, even though a bit overpriced compared to the beach restaurants. Breakfast was terrible, crowded and difficult to get a table. Hotel overall was really nice, rooms were good and cleaned almost to perfection. Exellent service by the pool bars, but as said, breakfast...More

Around +30C degree and showers of rain can occur. The sea is a bit choppy because it's after the rain season. /Robert
