Better than I expectedPosted Oct 30, 2013
Pros: Peaceful and relaxing. The pool area was well kept and maintained. Large room. Friendly staff.
Cons: Shouldn't have to pay for a safe in the room.
Location: Beach is a two minute walk away. Lots of restaurants a five minute walk away.
Had a very pleasant and relaxing stay at this hotel. The room was a good size (think I had a 'superior') although the ocean view was debatable the view was still a good one nevertheless. All amenities (shower, air con, etc) worked perfectly fine and good selection of beers in the mini bar. Nice pool to relax by but also very close to the beach so just a two minute wander over the road if that's your preference. The breakfast was fine. Lots of variety and changed on a daily basis. Nothing to write home about but more than adequate.

Beautiful,peaceful place for familiesPosted Mar 10, 2013
Pros: Loved the pool and the quiet nights, beach across the street is beautiful
Location: Quiet, easy access to everything
Wonderful,small hotel directly across from a beautiful section of the beach. Within walking distance of fabulous food and shopping. The staff was very gracious and the room was very nice, we loved the walk in shower. Our beds were a little hard,but the ocean view window seat made up for it. This is a perfect hotel for families, very quiet. We did not want to be in the party zone of Patong. The pool was beautiful, we loved the sound of the waterfall. My 13 year old son really enjoyed the breakfast buffet every day. After spending time al over Phuket, we felt very lucky for our small,quiet little oasis.

Oasis near a beautiful beach - 9.5 out of 10Posted Mar 10, 2013
Pros: Location to beautiful Karon Beach, huge and varied breakfast buffet, gorgeous and relaxing pool area.
Cons: Ridiculously firm bed, weak wi-fi signal.
Location: Karon town is not that nice...no sidewalks so you walk on the edge of narrow roads...plus it smells like sulfur and waste! Beach is beautiful though.
*Pool Area: More than expected even from pictures. Gorgeous. *Breakfast: Superb. A huge display & array of food. Several dishes changed daily so you always had variety. Crispy bacon, fried & boiled eggs, omelettes made to order, fresh bread loaves, lots of hot dishes, yogurt, fruits, & salad. *Staff: English not their strong suit. Definitely not as knowledgeable about the area as a visitor would hope when asking for advice & seeking recommendations. Housekeeping staff were on their toes; the room was perfectly made up & items restocked every day. *Room: As expected from other guest’s photos. Totally acceptable for the price. If they wanted to modernise it a bit, all they would need is some neutral paint. *Bed: Several reviews described the firm beds (which I love). Unfortunately, it was too hard even for me; we had to ask for thin foam cover & softer pillows. I would highly recommend asking for the pillow top immediately. *Shower: Always hot & flowing with strong pressure. The age of the shower shows in the grout build-up, but no worse than most people would find in their own aged showers at home. *Location: If you're headed to Karon, this is the hotel to book. LITERALLY 50m to the most beautiful, calm, clean, beach I’ve ever seen. The town is nothing to write home about, but the beach makes it worth it. *Free Wi-fi Internet: Fast & reliable whilst in the lobby or by the pool, but it didn’t work in the room.

I’m looking forward to go backPosted Jan 3, 2013
I’m looking forward to go back, excellent location, friendly staff, beautiful sea view from deluxe room and lovely breakfast. The Hotel was mostly occupied with Russian guest.

Great ChoicePosted Nov 27, 2012 on Hotels.com
I was so relieved when we checked into the Karona Resort because I had never been to Phuket and didn't know anything about the area when I made the choice online. It had everything we wanted though. The resort, although mid-priced was extremely nice. It was across the street from one beach and just a short walk to the other. There were plenty of places to walk to for shopping and eating so it was close to everything we could want yet off of a side street so it was very quiet and secluded. Also the staff was excellent and they had a wonderful breakfast buffet included.

Really mixed experiencePosted Nov 17, 2012 on Hotels.com
First, the good things...the staff was very helpful. When we arrived, we found out that one of us left our passport on the plane at Phuket airport (45 min away). The hotel manager took charge and called up the airline until he finally got a hold of someone who had found it. He handled this situation very well for us. Other pluses were the nice breakfast, the pool, the grounds and location to beach. However, I wouldn't stay here again. So, the negatives....free WIFI was available however it did not reach our room (109). This was not just our problem, as many people had to hang out in the lobby just to access WiFi. Obviously, we don't go on vacation just to be on the internet, but it's nice to decompress at the end of the day. When we were using WiFi, it continuously kicked us off. The login procedure is annoying throughout Thailand, so this made it even worse. We were always better off to go to a restaurant to access WiFi. It always worked better. The biggest issue for me was street noise. We stayed on a Mon-Wed. Each night from 10pm-1am (once til 2am) we could hear live music pounding through the resort from a bar on the street around the corner. So sleep didn't start until 1 or 2am. The pounding of the drum and bass and the notes of the guitar was so annoying. Finally, Karon beach was nice, quiet, sandy but we could not swim much because there were jellyfish everywhere. So no sleep, no wifi, not a great beach would all lead me to look somewhere else next time.
