Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort or Moevenpick Resort Karon

Hi all,

I have narrowed my choice of accommodation to the Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort or the Moevenpick Resort Karon as they both march our criteria for kids facilities/pool, decent sized rooms, and location to restaurants, and a bit of shopping.

I will be travelling with my partner and 3 year old son.

Which would you choose?

Movenpick is more convnient to walk to restaurants. Hilton is a bit in no mans land. There is a lot on beach side and patak rd side of Moevenpick.

A bit different concept of hotel.

Hilton comprises of a few large towers. Moevenpick comprises of small buildings scattered around the property.

Moevenpick might suit you better as theres more space for kids to run around. Both are large properties and a fair amount of walking might be necessary when getting between facilities.

Given a choice of those two my vote would be for Movenpick

Agree, Movenpick is in the middle of everything. The Hilton is way up the road and a long walk in the heat to restaurants and shops.

I also agree the Movenpick is within closer walking distance to some restaurants, shopping etc. The Hiltons facilities are awesome but if you want to walk to some shops etc the walk is longer.
