If I had 9 lives, then one of them would be spent buying this hotel and turning it into a huge success. It has huge potential but does not live up to it. The location of the hotel is very nice, cross one road and you're on the beach. The reception staff were incredibly friendly and spoke English very well....

Rented two rooms for two nights and were very satisfied with the stay. Friendly and helpful staff that helped us with every request. Great location, across the street from the beach. Good restaurant and reasonably priced. Place is starting to show it's age but rooms were clean and comfortable. Probably would return if visiting the area again.

Just spent 2 weeks staying at Golden Sand Inn Karon. As usual staff were all very helpful & friendly. Room was always clean & well maintained. They are starting to do some refurbishing around the place which is good as the building is fairly old. Excellent location & good restaurant that is not expensive. Will be back again next year.
