it was a very wonderful experienced. The hotel was amazing and a slice of paradise. Very close to the beach and the hotel service was excellent. Foods are good and staff are quite helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel. And come back again. sGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"This is the place"
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"4 Days in Phuket"
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"4 night stay in April"
Had a great beach view from our hotel room. We were lucky to get an end unit, with a front and side balcony. Hotel staff was friendly and informative. I was surprised to discover that this hotel caters to Russian tourist groups as our party was American. Not the friendliest travel situation as we were hoping to have more of a Thai experience. Breakfast […] was incredible and generous... Pool was amazing. Hotel grounds were spotless. All in all, an enjoyable stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"CLOSE TO BEACH AND SHOPS"
The overall feel of this Resort was TROPICAL with a EARTHLY CHARM. Our stay was very pleasant. The room was clean and serviced daily. The room safe had a key - not code locked - which was annoying. The pool had blue tiles and mosaic flowers on the bottom and arty statues surrounding the edges giving it a very tropical feel. Day beds with umbrellas lined […] the tiered hill leading into the pool. Also you had to sign towels out and return by 6pm which was also annoying. Breakfast had all you could eat ranging from European to Thai foods. The location is only about five minute walk to Karon Beach and ten minuets to Kata Beach with lots of quaint shops and restaurants between both beaches. We ate at TWO CHEFS - food was fantastic! @ THE BEACH RESTAURANT - right opposite the little street out from the Resort - right on the beach with lapping waves and fairy lights to enjoy your lovely meal. Although the Resort is on a hill with lots of steps - No lifts to top floor rooms. (Keeps you Fit) I would recommend KARONA BEACH & SPA RESORT. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful,peaceful place for families"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really mixed experience"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice beach town"
The area was really nice and had some good restaurants. It was only about a five minutes walk to the beach. The only bad thing about our stay was the t.v was really choppy but that wasn't a big concern since we didn't spend a lot of time in the room. But everything else was good!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was great. However a hotel with over 90 rooms should cater for their numbers! 28 sun loungers for this amount of rooms is not very good!! We came for a sunbathing holiday!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable, close to the beach, staff just OK"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach"
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Gorgeous, affordable hotel across from the beach"
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! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel in a great location"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel close to local shops & restaurants"
Our family of 4 had a great time at Karona Resort. It was affordable and met all our needs. It was clean and very comfortable. We are regulars to Phuket but this was our first time at this hotel. We like the location as it is close to the restaurants - especially Dino's. Karon Beach is much quieter than Patong if you are looking for a relaxing holiday […] away from the crowds.

Quieter than Patong beach if you are looking for a quiet break.... but close enough for other amenities... Food is easily available and beach is within reach although it's not swimmable most of the time...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Disappointed compared to visit here 18 months ago."
Not helpful when wife was I'll. Manager also agreed breakfast would be available for us on our final morning at 6.15 am but little available even by 6.30. Breakfast from 6.00 am was detailed in room brochure. Manager informed us change written on room card as 6.15 to 10.00 amGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel near Karona Beach"
Room was very nice and the bed was comfortable. Shower was nice, but had spotty hot water. We had problems with our AC not working very well. Those were our only problems. We would recommend people coming to this place, but would probably choose a different beach to stay on if we went back to Phuket.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great location and value for money"
I was quite skeptical about Karona prior to the trip because I didn't know what to expect despite the resort having quite a number of good reviews. But the moment I arrived, I must say that I was quite pleasantly surprised. The view from the lobby that faced the guestrooms was beautiful and more importantly, the placed looked well-kept. I was given […] a room at the highest level with the beach view and it was pretty big. The room was also very clean and there were zero problems during the 3 nights I stayed there. The hospitality of the staff was amazing (especially the lady at the massage parlour) although I do think the experience could be made even better if they improved in their basic English. Slowing down and using simple sentences did the trick most of the time, but still gotta be patient since English isn't their first language :) Two things to note: 1. You gotta make payments at the Front Office to use the safety deposit box in your room. 2. Wi-fi is available and free. Just gotta get the username and password from the front office. I would highly recommend Karona Resort and Spa especially if you are on a budget. I had a wonderful holiday there with minimal issues plus had a clean and spacious room. Food and shopping are also available right outside the resort, so my partner and I weren't bored at night. The beach is just opposite when you come out of Karona too :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Better than I expected"
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ok but noisy at night"
We stayed for two nights. We book the sea view room. Honestly i dont think you can see the sea from most of the rooms because there are trees in the way. Its quite noisy at night until around 12am because of the band / bass from the local bar. Pool was clean and nice to cool off in. Breakfast was average. For the price it was ok.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good and affordable"
The hotel is tucked away, just a few steps from the main beach road in Karon, where Kata begins. It is reasonable quite, but it is a big hotel and there are quite some stairs to climb if you are on the top floor, for sea-view rooms. The rooms are nice but the beds are little too hard. The breakfast was ok, and they tried to have some variation every […] day. We were there off season, so there weren't that many people during our stay. It is a hotel recommended and used by some charter groups, so expect it to be busy during the peak season. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Oasis near a beautiful beach - 9.5 out of 10"
*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.

Veldig bra beliggenhet, meget hyggelig personell og romslige rom. MEN trenger vedlikehold mange steder, basseng med slitne grønne fliser, det ser skittent ut men er ikke det.. Veldig små terasser, havsutsikt er ikke alltid det man tror kan være delvis bare.. Mye rust på "gjerdet" rundt terasse og andre steder. Veldig harde solsenger og forsåvidt også […] de vanlige sengene på rommene, vledig harde ikke så veldig komfortable.

こじんまりしていて、とてものんびりできました。スタッフは親切で、英語で何でも対応してくれます。二日目からは、顔を覚えて、何も言わなくても鍵を渡してくれました。空港からは1200バーツくらいで、タクシーで一時間くらいです。貴重品は、部屋にもありますが有料なので、受付の横のボックスに毎日預けました。自分のカギと受付の人の鍵、二つであけるので安心です。ビーチタオルは、毎日一人一枚7時までに返さないといけませんが貸してもらえます。プールは、ベンチでのんびりしたり、プールもほぼ貸切状態で入れるし、快適です。ただ、夕方までしか入れないのが残念です。朝ご飯はとてもおいしく、毎日楽しみでした。朝早いと、ツアーを申し込んでいる東洋人が多く、朝ゆっくりだと、のんびりしている西洋人が多かったです。ビーチは歩いてす […] ぐですが、波が高く、遊泳エリアが制限されているので、カタビーチまで歩くこともありました。歩いて15分くらいです。途中は、レストランやお店が並んでいて、歩くのも楽しみでした。歯ブラシはないので自分のを使いました。シャンプーはありましたが、お店で買って使いました。シャワーはお湯の出が悪いこともありました。冷房はよくきいていました。値段が安いのに、すっかりリゾート気分を味わうことができました。機会があればまた利用したいです。 Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
