Comfortable, close to the beach, staff just OK

Posted Nov 23, 2014
Karona resort and spa is overall a nice place to stay. The dining area is pleasant, by a little pond with the statues you'll see in the pictures here and they have a pool as well. Breakfast is decent-- they do fried/scrambled eggs for you fresh, and have lots of options. Fresh fruit, pancakes and also usually a few thai dishes too. The room is also decent, king size bed, good A/C and a clean enough bathroom. Its very close to the beach and walking distance to many shops etc, though there are some bad restaurants around. Better to turn left and go up the little hill than go right and walk into town. My one beef with this place is that on the day we were leaving, our ride hadn't shown up on time and the staff offered to call and ask about it. As she was on the phone, she got out her calculator, punched in a number and rudely said I had to pay her by the minute to make the phone call. It was pennies to me, but still just sort of a rude gesture. I've never stayed in a hotel where the staff didn't just do that sort of thing for you out of courtesy. I probably wouldn't go back here because of that, but overall its decent value for the money.

This is the place

Posted Sep 11, 2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: Not a thing
Location: 300 feet from the beach and within walking distance to the entire Karon area.
In my opinion, this was a 5 star hotel for a 1 star price. Very clean, very quiet, and about 300 feet from the Andaman Sea and beach. I originally booked for 2 nights and wound up staying for 7. I did not want to leave. The rooms were fantastic, exactly like the pictures.

Close to the beach

Posted Sep 9, 2014
Pros: It's quiet and staff are friendly and always ready to help.
Cons: Fix spa.
Location: There are some good restaurants nearby. Long stretch of beautiful sandy beaches but littered with rubbish.
Staff is caring and attentive to details. Generous spread for breakfast in the morning. Only thing is if you are staying there for some time you'll be eating the almost same thing day in, day out. Nice swimming pool, however spa does not work.

4 Days in Phuket

Posted Aug 31, 2014
Pros: I loved that it was clean and modern.
I initially booked 2 nights at Katona and extended for 2 additional nights. Great location, right off the main road and tucked away at the bottom of a hill. The hotel is modern, updated, and clean. I was able to walk to all the restaurants and shops . Very well ticked , I paid. $33 per night while I was there and got a massage too.

Gorgeous, affordable hotel across from the beach

Posted Aug 28, 2014
Pros: beach, pool, staff, room
Location: across from the beach, close to elephant trekking and restaurants
This hotel went above and beyond any expectations I had. On arrival I was presented with a drink and a cold facecloth, and very friendly staff. My bag was brought to my room which was absolutely gorgeous and spotless. I had a balcony overlooking the pool and a great view of the ocean across the street. I had a massage at the spa on the resort which was very nice, and the continental breakfast was also very good. It's located a bit away from the main city but there are still a lot of attractions nearby, and there are tons of restaurants and markets within walking distance. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who's looking for a relaxing vacation!

Great hotel in a great location

Posted Aug 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
Would definitely stay here again if we visited Karon again. Lovely big room with nice shower that was always hot, nice views and a lovely pool area. The hotel staff in the restaurant were lovely and friendly, but it was a little difficult to communicate with the reception staff (not their fault though). The breakfast selection was good and fresh. A nice quiet place to hire mopeds and explore the south for a day, we went to the bug Buddha, wat chalong, the fish market, 2 or 3 beaches and view points and saw lots of elephants along the way. A 2-5 minute walk to shops and restaurants.

Pros: ชอบอาหารเช้า ก็อร่อยดี พนักงานดูแลดี พูดจาดี นอกนั้น ติด ลบ หมด
Cons: พนักงานเช็คห้อง ถ้าหาก แขกยังอยู่ในห้องไม่ควรจะ รีบเข้ามาในห้อง เพราะเราต้องการความเป็นส่วนตัว
Location: มองเห็นทะเล แต่ต้องเดินออกไปไกล กว่าจะถึง ทะเล
ควรปรับปรุงสภาพโรงแรม เพราะไม่สมราคาที่จ่ายไป ตอนใกล้เที่ยงจะมีเจ้าหน้าที่มาเคาะประคู แล้วเข้ามาอยู่ในห้อง ทั้งที่เรายังเก็บของไม่หมดเลย เหมือนกับเร่งให้เรารีป ออกไปจากห้อง ผมมีความรู้สึกไม่ดี กับการบริการ
