Great Location and Wonderful Staff

Posted Sep 29, 2017
Pros: The lovely, friendly staff - from maintenance right through to reception staff.
Cons: Provide more TV channels for English speakers. Renew bed linen and towels.
Location: Excellent location straight across from the beach and short walk to shops, restaurants and bars.
We enjoyed our recent stay at Phuket Island View Hotel, despite the fact that we did experience a lot of rain and were forced to spend a lot of time in our room. We found the room was a good size - mattress very hard, but we got used to that. Bed linen and towels were very 'tired', but clean. As we are native English speakers, we were disappointed at the minimal choice of TV channels that we could watch on the wet days. The staff were excellent, friendly and helpful. Location was ideal - close to shops, bars and restaurants. We would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Not Bad

Posted Jul 19, 2017 on Orbitz
Pros: Location. It was right across from a beautiful beach.
Cons: Upgraded rooms, and better staff.
Location: A beach right across the street. Local bars, nightlife, and restaurants right around the corner.
We were put into a room in the older section of the hotel. It clean-ish just looked old, smelled moldy, and we found the occasional roach or giant moth hanging out. We would place the do not disturb sign on our door and yet every day our room was accessed and cleaned appreciated, but unwanted. Luckily nothing was missing.

Nice Hotel

Posted Jul 19, 2017
Pros: Close proximity to beach and shopping
Cons: The rooms were a little dated and the bedding could be improved.
Location: Across the road from the beach and short walk to shops and restaurants.
Nice hotel across the road from beautiful Karon Beach. Staff very friendly but the Hotel was a bit dated. The beds were very hard and the pillows lumpy which spoilt the holiday. They were also digging up the grounds for 2 swimming pools which was quite noisy during the day. Very close to the markets and small shops.

Nice hotel, great breakfast!!!

Posted Jul 15, 2017
We stayed in the off-season and arrived late in the morning, at about 2 am. Though the hotel says check-in ends at 12, we wrote beforehand and received assurances that we could check in at that time. Someone was there to check us in. The pool is good; the breakfast is superlative; the hotel is immediately adjacent to a relatively non-crowded, beautiful beach. We asked for a plug converter and they gave us one without a fee. There is a bit of a "thing" with the water - 2 bottles per room per day only, provided by housekeeping. The beds are hard but adequate. As a relatively lower-cost option, this hotel outperforms its price.

Best hotel on Karon beach for the price!

Posted Feb 15, 2017 on Hotels
We spent 5 wonderful nights here. The location was the best right on Karon beach. Super ocean for swimming. Walked to Kata ( 20 minutes) because the snorkelling was better there. We paid to have the breakfast included & it was awesome. The best breakfast we had in the 4 weeks we had been in SE Asia. We ate most of our meals at the hotel because of the variety of food options,quality & fair prices. Pools were clean & you could usually get deck loungers. The room cleaning staff could have been better -eg. didn't clean coffee mugs or change linens enough. For such a large hotel it would have been nice to have an in room safe instead of bothering the staff at the front desk. The staff were all friendly & helpful. Wifi was a con. It was down frequently, once for more than a day. It was frustrating because it was constantly cutting in & out so it was hard to download anything or check sites for booking further travel.

Basic 3-star hotel

Posted Dec 21, 2016
Pros: The location to the beach
Cons: Cleaniness of the rooms
Location: Right across the street from the beach and lots of restaurants near by. Easy location for tour pick-ups as well.
The rooms are moderately clean. The only rooms I would stay in are the villas or deluxe rooms. Everything thing else is old and not very clean. The pools are very nice and the location is literally across the street from the beach. The waitresses at the restaurant maintain an average politeness. Seemed like they were always tired which showed in their attitude and faces.
