“Great Resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2013

My husband and I just returned from Horizon Karon and had a wonderful time.Resort grounds were beautiful and staff very friendly.We decided not to pay extra for the privilege club wing and I was glad we didn't as our room was a good size,very clean and only a 15 second walk to pool which only had a few people in it every time.I can't understand the people who have said the beds were very hard,we thought they were very comfy.No problem to get a ride up or down the hill in the tuk tuk and great to have the pancake man at the bottom!
Previously we have always stayed in Patong but this location is better,plenty to do and family friendly.At bottom of hill left is Kata and right is Karon.Would stay here again.

We were a family name of four staying 8 night's. We were probably spoilt by the accommodation we stayed in in Hong Kong as it was palatial in comparison to the Horizon. However we were pretty disappointed with the room and the small size of it. The housekeeping service was good however we had to ask several times for more than two beach towels. We found the "free wifi" advertising quite misleading. We had to pay $30 for a week of wifi and even then only one device can be logged on at a time. The pool was good although a few more pool toys would have been good. The pool bar prices were a little steep and the staff at all bars should be able to communicate the discounting system. The staff were quite friendly and helpful enough. The chefs at breakfast were the friendliest but even they couldn't improve on the food. Breakfast was fine but the evening buffet was pretty terrible. Handy for the evening we arrived (bbq'd night) but wish we had have avoided it for the other two nights we went. Felt sorry for the couple that entertained every night. They were friendly and quite good but must have gotten tired of the sound of there own voices! I think the shame about this place was the type of clientele it attracted . There were several people recovering from plastic surgery and a lot of aussies. I am an aussie but these were the type that made you cringe that you were from the same country. I wouldn't stay here again but having said that I wouldn't rushing back to phuket anytime soon anyway.

Just checked out today. Really good value hotel. They gave us a free upgrade to the privilege club which was great and they left in a birthday card and plate of fruit for my boyfriend. Really nice touch, they also gave us an oil burner and beach bag!!! Great location, close to beach and mini golf and nice restaurants. Decent breakfast. I'm just giving a 4 because our room had an adjoining door which wasn't locked and was just blocked by a chair. Not very good for security, also we could hear everything our neighbours did even when they weren't being loud. Bring earplugs and you'll be set!

Highly recommended, great resort on the best beach. Kata and patong beach are crazy busy. Go with the privilige club room as we had the pool to ourselves most of the time. Breakfasts were good. People mention the hill to climb but its tiny, one minute up, easy

We stayed here in April 2013 for our honeymoon.
Unfortunately we missed an error in our booking and were booked into Horizon Patong, not knowing there were 2 Horizons, but after talking to the receptionist there and a phone call we were transferred to the Horizon Karon at no extra charge. They even put us in the Club Wing deluxe rooms. (Highly recommended if you dont have kids)
As our first official holiday and honeymoon, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Very kind and friendly staff, and the lady (which unfortunately i cant think of her name) who booked all of the tours was amazing!!
beautiful resort, huge selection at breakfast time and the restaurant had great food too.
If you want somewhere away from the hustle this place was perfect. Our few nights we were in Patong the noise has really put us off ever staying right in there for another holiday, although the two resort have a shuttle from Karon to Patong 4 times daily free of charge which was great.

We have just booked our flights to travel to Phuket again in April 2014, and Horizon Karon is at the top of our list for our accommodation.

Thanks for everything. Loved it!!

Room Tip: If you aren't travelling with kids its definitely worth the extra money to get a room in the del...

We stayed one week at the Horizon. The rooms are nice contemporary and have a balcony overlooking the pool and in the distance the bay. The pool is a good size. You do need to claim early chaise lounges if you want to spend time the pool as it does get crowded. It is not a relaxing hotel though as it is noisy and busy. Food…so-so. It is easy walk to the beach so you can get away from the busy pool area.

Staying for 8 nights, rooms are very basic, beds and pillows need updating, bathroom very tired, poor shower, extremely noisy, we were next to a bogan family would we could hear all day and night, if you want to relax, this is not the place.
Food average, location away from most things, all in all, crap!
