4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2014

This hotel is very central to Karon Beach. Every day you can change your bath towel. Good breakfast and good massage offers. Breakfast is until 10.30 am every day. Good service and friendly staff. Good food in the restaurant with many different choices. Coffeemaker in the room, with choices of coffee or tea. Free bottle water everyday, one bottle per person. Each bottle is 600 ml.
The bad things is that the bed is very hard and the internet is slow in the room. Better to use the free wifi in the lobby.

Room Tip: Get a superiorroom, bigger ones with a great size of balcony. Also you get a coffee/tea-maker in you...

All great and no complaints at all; its right across the road from the beach so very handily placed for swimming there although the water is a bit more salty than usual. Apparently its cause of the desalination plant up at the far end of the beach where the water is very salty so if swimming up there, put chapstick on ya lips.
Rooms great, service great and all good.
Lots of good places to eat at all around although found the prices have moved up a bit now as seems to have become more touristy; and as such, more costly.

We only stayed here one night but would definitely stay here again. Three beautiful pools (one with swim-up bar, comfortable and stylish rooms, friendly and helpful staff, fabulous breakfast buffet, and wonderful restaurant with live entertainments in the evenings. Restaurant is located right across the street from the beach. Very nice location!

Firstly: this review is for the restaurant only, not the accomodation.

Dined here on the night of Thursday 13/6 with 3 other people all of whom had the same opinion.

Terrible service, we were here for 90 minutes total and not once did a staff member say a word. They come to take your order, they write it down and say nothing. One drink each the entire meal, never once were we offered anything. Food very average, Thai menu overcooked . Western menu undercooked.

With over 40 years hospitality experience between us on that table we were absolutely astounded staff of this poor quality could keep a job.

Perhaps this may have been a 'one off' or a 'bad night' but I will never be back. Why would anyone else take the chance when there is many other options in walking distance.

For managements information: our receipt states the bill was lodges at 21:46 and afternoon shift was Suchada
