“Great hotel..lovely staff”
Reviewed 23 May 2012

We make an annual trip to Phuket and always stay in karon/kata region. This was our first stay at horizon and Must say what a lovely experience. The staff were wondeful and friendly, rooms clean, pools were great. It was may/June and Phuket was quiet, so it felt as though we had the resort to ourselves. Only downside that if you are not do fit and able, there is quite a steep hill to climb to get to the resort but as we are, it wasn't a problem but I don't think I would have booked my aging parents in here. Good for young families, couples but not for people who find steps and steep hills challenging. Overall a great place to stay.

This was our 4th visit to harizon karon and we loved it more every time.

My mum and I travel to Asia every may for a girls shopping trip and find the location of this hotel fantastic.

We stay in the club room and take advantage of the over 18 years pool and wet bar. We also enjoyed a free drink at 12.

The breakfast, lunch and dinner was great. The singing at dinner was a great touch.

Yes there is a hill but it's not massive and if you eat like we did its good exercise. There is a tuk tuk that will drop you off and pick you up so no trouble at all.

Very friendly staff that can't do enough for you. We can't wait to come back and stay next year. Thanks for a great stay.

This hotel is lovely. great friendly staff, happy to help and seemingly happy all the time while working! great food at breakfast - with so much to choose from you really need some self control ;~) Night meals often have a theme with a lot of choice (very yummy) and often with entertainment (a show) which is brillaint. The pools are lovely - clean and cool (happy hour a must) Rooms are spacious and quite at night - cleaned perfectly each day too!

Try and find a driver to take you to sites and to Patong shopping for the day as it's way cheaper than taking separate taxi's throughout the day/ days.

Room Tip: hard to choose. if you like a view of the pool, take a third floor room (the steps are easy and lets...

My partner and I stayed at Horizon Karon Beach during March & really enjoyed our 7 nights there. We stayed in a 2nd floor apartment & found the room to be clean & well equiped. The staff were lovely - most had a good understanding of English and they were polite at all times. The 2 pools were fantastic ! Quite large and very refreshing with a swim up pool bar.

Fantastic location - if you want to be away from the Patong area (15 mins by taxi) , nice & quiet with a beautiful beach 2 mins walk away. No issue with the hill - If you cant walk up it (you must be in pretty poor shape) , but If you dont want to you can dial the hotel from a phone at the bottom & a shuttle van comes and gets you within a few mins.

Found a great little restaurant on the main road nearby called "Best Friends" - great food, very cheap. All the karon Beach nightlife is a short walk away, including heaps of bars / restaurants. Excellent breakfast with heaps of choices (I had roast duck one morning !!)

Highly recommended

My husband and I stayed in the priviledge wing with a swim up pool and loved it. Staff were very helpful and friendly and we could not find fault in any part of our stay here. Buffet breakfast and evening meal was also excellent

Room Tip: Priviledge club wing is excellent away from the swim up bar

We stayed at this hotel for 7 nights on our first vsit to the island, absolutely loved it from the time we arrived to our nice cool towels and welcome drink to the time we waved them all goodbye to head back to Perth. Staff were so friendly and nothing was ever too much trouble. Only negative is please do something about the beds they are so hard. Stayed in the privelage wing awesome .... If you are looking for a great location with a resort atmosphere with friendly, happy staff and very clean then this is the place for you... Thankyou Horizon for making our stay so wonderful .....

Reviewed 30 April 2012

We visited this hotel at the end of April 2012 and were pleasantly impressed. From the reception, being greeted with cold towels and happy smiles after our long flights, to the excellent breakfast and supper buffet's that my two children aged 9 and 13 loved, all was excellent. The shuttle was also welcomed to the beach, that other hotels that we visited did not offer. The beds were firm but not unpleasantly so. Pools were great and the swim-up bar really enjoyable. My only drawback was the spa's exorbitant prices at roughly 5 times the going rate for a massage down the road. Our further stops in Phi-Phi and Krabi, the spa's were more value for money at double the outside hotels prices and a better value proposition. Otherwise excellent hotel that I can highly recommend.

Room Tip: All pool facing rooms are great.
