In on the Beach
Ranked #94 of 135 Hotels in Karon
Reviewed 22 February 2014

This is a wonderful, small hotel located right on Karon Beach. The rooms are very clean, spacious, and ours had a great balcony overlooking the pool and the sea. Breakfast was delicious, with many options to choose from, including made-to-order eggs. The owners were very hospitable and friendly and their employees were very helpful with taking care of our requests for tour reservations and with answering any questions we had.

Room Tip: An upper room with balcony overlooking the pool and sea.

We stayed here for 4 nights over Chinese New Year. The hotel is small and basic and situated on a quite road at the north end of Karon Beach. It is away from all traffic and noisy streets, but a quick walk away if you do want to explore Karon or catch a taxi to other parts of Phuket. The beach is a few steps away from the hotel, just across a small dirt road (you can't get much closer than that in Karon - most Karon hotels are across the busy main road from the beach).

The rooms are basic but clean and spacious. Our air conditioner was a bit noisy but we managed to sleep with it! The breakfast buffet was fresh and more than enough to suit most tastes - fresh fruit, eggs cooked to order, waffles or pancakes, cereals....
The pool is the main feature of the hotel as all rooms look out onto the it; it is a lovely clear, refreshing blue pool and wonderful to have a swim after a hot walk or day on the beach.

My husband and I had a suite on the first floor which was spacious and private and a sea view. Our daughter was in a ground floor room which opens directly out onto the pool. Would advise against ground floor if you want privacy.

The staff were very friendly and pleasant. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a quiet and relaxed holiday right on the beach.

We ate a few meals next door at Tony's restaurant which has cheap tasty meals and free high speed wi-fi. There are also a couple of local restaurants close by and look for the restaurants right on the beach at the most north end of Karon beach.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are right on the pool and therefore less private - take a room on the first or se...

After two nights at a hotel full of russians I had enoght. I went for a walk, and found this nice and cosy hotel on the beach.
It is a small hotel and a very quiet place. The staff was nice and helpful.
Every evening they served refreshment, fruit, cake, coffe, lemonade by the pool.
It is a little too expencive I think, but it lays on the beach, so I think thats why.

Room Tip: I wood choose a room at 2. or 3. floor Not at groundfloor.

We stayed here for six nights during the off season. Would have been longer but there rates doubled from 1st November. Not many people staying in the off season had resulted in rooms being a bit musty. Air conditions didn't work but this was promptly fixed. Rooms are small but clean. Bathroom is good with separate shower. Hotel is in the form of a U with a small pool in the middle. Not much space between the pool and the rooms. Staff friendly and helpful. Situation is great, there is only a track separating it from a great swimming beach. Plenty of cheap lounge chairs and food vendors on the beach. Will be staying here again.

Room Tip: Take an upstairs room. Downstairs have little privacy and are only a couple of metres from the pool.

Great little quiet hotel, off the beaten path. Perfect for families and couples. We went during low season, so room had not been used in a while. Best part of room is the air conditioning and the ceiling fan! Loved it on hot nights!

we stayed at this hotel for 3 days and had an excellent time. the beach is right next door, it's beautiful, clean and not crowded. rooms are a little small but clean and well furnished. staff is polite and helpful. the charge for pick up and drop taxi was less than what was quoted by other taxi services on the net or at prepaid stand at airport. free wi fi connection was good. breakfast was a bit repetitive though but it had ample choice and served by smiling staff.

Room Tip: rooms on first and second floor would allow more privacy from people lounging around the pool. thoug...

The service was great. The rooms were spaceious, modern and clean. The free internett had limited range, so there were a couple of areas we didn't have access to the internett, but this was a minor problem. Because of the waterchannel (or "river" if you like) on the backside of the hotell there were alot of mosquitos and other insects that gives a good bite, so remember buying insect repellent. We had to change rooms because of the bugs, and after moving up to the third floor, we noticed little of this. The waterchannel isn't a pretty sight, but this didn't bother us, being most of the time on the beach in front and around the pool. The beds are quite hard, but we have the same experince from other hotels around in Thailand.
Very little noise, except from the loud tuk-tuk's with big stereos going to and from patong beach on the main road, maybe 60 meters away.
