Service was good. Everyone is friendly. The hotels' pool view is picture perfect. The cool air from the aircon in the room was a necessity. Breakfast was really very nice every morning. Perfect place to go if you want a more quiet place.

My husband, son and myself stayed for 8 nights. We had a wonderful time. Our Deluxe Pool View room was very spacious and comfortable and the modern decor was very inviting. All the staff were lovely. We felt especially spoilt by Kwab and his fantastic breakfast staff. The nearby restaurants were great too. Apart from dipping our toes in the water we couldn't swim at the beach as at this time of year the rip tides are very strong, but it didn't bother us as the hotel pool was excellent. We had drinks and some lunches served to us by the pool which was so relaxing. The Thai massage nearby the pool area was blissful. We would definitely be happy to stay here again.

Room Tip: If you intend on spending a lot of time relaxing by the pool a Deluxe Pool Access room would be the...

We stayed there for 6 nights. Very nice hotel, nice buffet breakfast and large modern rooms. The only negative I had was that the beach looked dirty right across from the hotel which put me off from going there. They can do with more pool loungers as it gets full quite soon.

We were a group of friends booked into four rooms and had a delightful stay from beginning to end. We stayed in De Lux rooms, which were spacious with balconies. The bathroom is big and everything was very clean. The staff was very friendly and housekeeping as well as the maintenance staff did an excellent work. They even came in after 12 at night to fix the airconditioner. Breakfast was fantastic. Best stay in Thailand! Location is good and restaurants on hotel strip were really good with very friendly staff. Massages were the best, Krabi and Bangkok did not come close to Phuket.

Although we enjoyed our holiday in Phuket, Karon, the hotel was just ordinary.
Looking at the photos on the website - no pictures actually shows how stained the linen are with black marks etc - this is the worst ever. On our first day there I've asked for an upgrade for the hotel room that I am will to pay for. The answer was NO :( a few days later another couple received a free upgrade. We were not very pleased but made the most of the holiday. Breakfast is very basic - nothing special. HOWEVER- the hotel is very close to the beach which is a bonus.

My partner and I stayed for 2 weeks in the jacuzzi room 301. We had a beautiful welcome to the hotel our concierge Nut was a lovely man he took us up to our room, we loved it it was open planned and had a great balcony and of course the jacuzzi on the balcony! We were right next to the pool area that had 2 pools a bar and a massage area. Buffet breakfast every morning that really catered for every style of breakfast from bacon and eggs ( eggs to how ever you wanted them ) to plain toast to coco pops! Staff were extremely friendly nothing was to much of a fuss for them! If you've been to Phuket before you understand that Karon is alot quieter that Patong but still has all your markets, restaurants, bars and is only a 5 minute walk to the beach! Its only 15 mins to Patong in taxi and will cost around 350bhr.
I would and will recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in Karon!
