hi....well karon beach is a 2 mile stretch...depepeding on your location you could be a very long walk in the hot sun to anywhwere...the beach is also a way away from even the closest beachside hotels... I am not fond of Karon...Kamala has a poor beach ..the village though is nice...I wouldn't go there for the beach.. I go there at night maybe to go to a restaurent...

Surf is high in rainy season...many drown on Karon and Kata..be mindful

Patong has a good beach but its busy of course

Kata is good and the village is good

I'd stay at 2 places if it were me...but research your location very carefully

I'ts easily done to stay in 2 different locations - gives you a feel for the each spot.

Karon is more family orientated - the beach is quite nice with lots of nice hotels & popular restaurants. And about 10-15min (about 300bht) tuktuk/taxi ride from Patong.

We went past the Kantary at Cape Panwa (v close to aquarium) and its certainly in a great position overlooking the ocean there. Also very popular hotel itself as from reviews.

Kata & partic Kata-Noi are also popular beaches.

Hotel will depend on your budget/needs.
