“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

Very neat and tidy accommodation, excellent value for money. Staff efficient and happy to help - tuk-tuk guys are great. Breakfast good - hot tip - the Indian breakfast chef is excellent - try the dosa or roti for brekkie if you fancy a change. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay with my two kids of 12 and 16. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for our first overseas family holiday and will be returning as soon as we can.
Our kids are 16 yr old girl and 12 yr old boy and both were treated with the utmost kindness and attention by all the staff,including the very hardworking groundskeepers and security guards.
Our connecting rooms overlooked the pool 2102 and 2103 and they were in a perfect location to all the facilities.The buffet breakfast and dinner were included in our 2 week stay and saved us a fortune and were accessible before and after our daytripping.Lots of Australians were staying here and made conversation hanging around the pool very easy and friendly.
The hill is no big deal because waiting at the bottom is banana pancake man who we all stacked on weight with at $1.50 a pancake.
Shops are everywhere to the left and kata beach is the place to swim only 1/2 km up the road.
The Patong shuttle bus 4 times daily is fantastic and another moneysaver.The weather in our time there 12-26 September was exceptional and we saw only one spot of rain in the evening.
We tipped the staff wherever we could because they were always smiling and gracious.
Overall a fantastic experience for our family and Phuket itself is a great place to visit,can`t wait to get back.

Room Tip: Our rooms were superior pool view 2102 and 2103.These are 5 steps up and give a perfect view to the...

Beautiful Resort located close to both Karon and Kata beaches. Karon beach is a 5 minute walk down the hill and Kata Beach is a 20 minute walk or a short tuk tuk ride for about 200bht. Friendly staff, good buffet breakfasts and dinners and plenty of choice if you order there for lunch. Just a word of warning - there were NO LIFTS in the building we stayed in. So if you get a 4th floor room you have to climb up and down 60 stairs in a non air conditioned stairway. I'm a marathon runner so I can cope with the walk up the hill to the resort and then the stairs to my room, however if you have fitness, knee or hip issues ask for a lower floor. My elderly mum wouldn't have coped at all. The concierge was terrific organising drivers to anywhere you wanted to go. The free bus into Patong was really handy.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the 3rd/4th floor unless you don't mind stairs.

We recently returned from a eight night stay and would highly recommend this resort. It is neat and tidy and the staff are excellent. Value for money for sure. The pools are great and well maintained. Everything is there if you don't want to leave the resort. The additional bonus of the free shuttle to and from Patong saves a bit of money too, and you don't need to worry about the resort being on a hill because the tuk tuk will drive you up and back as many times as you need.

Our family had a wonderful time here and can't wait to go back. Congratulations Horizon on being a wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: Most rooms have a pool view. If you are a larger family you can get an interconnecting room.

My partner and I stayed in a pool access club wing room in December 2012 (yeh a bit late with the review I know). The room was beautiful. It was perfect. Loved it. And pool access room is the only way to go. The 2 hours of drinks and nibbles in the lounge area of the club wing was also really good - must say i got a bit tiddly on a number of occasions. We arrived Christmas Eve and went to the Christmas Eve function, the food was a bit average but we were just excited to be there so no real problem. We flew out the day before new years eve so spent maybe 6 nights there. The staff were really helpful, the pool (we only used the club wing pool) great, the free shuttle to Patong great, all in all - great. Recommended this place to friends for their stay.

Room Tip: If not traveling with children i would say MOST DEFINITELY get a pool access room in the club wing.

We have been here for 12 nights and I certainly would not have any hesitation in recommending this resort to anyone. The place is fantastic for families, the breakfast and dinner buffets are great and have a different theme each night. ( make sure you upgrade your booking to have the dinner included as it saves your a lot of money and well worth the additional cost). The pools are great, we spent most of our time at the top pool as it is a little more relaxing. The location is away from the hustle and bustle, but if you want to go to Patong it is only 15 minutes in a free shuttle provided by the hotel, or you could catch a Tuk Tuk for 200 each way. Shopping is better here, especially if you turn left at the bottom of the hill and walk towards kata beach. There is a convenience store located 3 minutes away on foot. People complain about the hill but really it is nothing at all. We as a family walk up it 4 times a day. If you haven't got the energy then the free Tuk Tuk will pick you up at the bottom and take you back. Highly recommended stay. The Jones Family (GAMP) from Ballarat, Australia :))

This is an excellent place to stay in Phuket. I spent a few nights on holiday with my wife and this is among the best places I have stayed at. The facilities are great, the swimming pool, surroundings, etc. are all excellent. The restaurant serves great breakfast and dinner. The beach is a 5 minutes walk down the hill, and they even make it easier in case you want to lazy to the beach to ride in a free tuk-tuk. The hotel offers free shuttle service between one of its sister hotel in Patong, offering you an opportunity to avoid the exorbitant local transportation cost, and yet enjoy the crazyness of Patong, while reserving a quiet and romantic place to stay in Karon. Would recommend it to any couple, or anyone looking for a quiet place to stay, with easy access to fun places.

Room Tip: ocean view rooms, always go for the top floor
