Would return as it was a clean, great place with very kind, helpful people. Good breakfast and right across the street from the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Karon Sea Sands"
Took the pool access room and enjoyed having a pool side patio. The many fountains in the pool made so much noise you could not hold a normal conversation. Fitness center, and breakfast were below my expectation based on two othe properties I have stayed in for the same price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Value for The Money!!"
Walk right across the street to Karon Beach. Plenty of restaurants and hotels within walking distance. Bars and nightlife also just right around the corner. Certainly not as crazy as Patong area, but we loved that Karon was away from all the hustle and bustle. The Karon beach is way less crowded than Patong and cleaner as a result. The sand feels like […] baby powder under your feet and the scenery is beautiful. Patong and Bangla street only a short tuk-tuk or cab ride along the coast if you want to party. I would definetely recommend this hotel, we did not know what quite to expect because of the price but we were very pleasantly surpirsed. The only negative I can say is that the 'english' style breakfast could be improved, but we traveled around Thailand for 3 weeks and it was the same everywhere we went. I went to IHOP on my first day back to states, never thought I love an IHOP breakfast as much as that one!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Spend your money elsewhere"
Hotel staff was horrible. Shuttle didn't pick up from airport not once, but TWICE on the same trip.. Front desk people were completely unhelpful.. Spend your money elsewhere folksGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Plenty of things to do nearby"
Overall a nice place to stay. The breakfast bar was delicious and free. And the employees were very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is clean and comfortable. very close the beach. you passed the road and come to the beach. Hotel pool is nice and 10 rooms directly accessed pool. food is delicious and sometimes music band enjoyed to dinner. Thai people allways smiling. but reception stuff is not cheerful. not polite.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Hotel Close to Beach"
This is a great hotel in the heart of Karon and right across the road from the beach. The hotel is clean and very well maintained with a great pool, wet bar and spa.The rooms are well appointed cleaned daily and with good air conditioning and free drinking water provided in house. The staff are friendly and helpful particularly the people in the restaurant […] and on the front desk. The Bluewater Tour rep was particularly helpful and friendly and I would recommend her. The restaurant and bar are adequate with breakfast being a standard buffet fair (get there early for crispy hash browns) which is filling and provided a good spread of food. (Omelettes, bacon, sausages, pastries, toast, juices, fruit.) I have to admit that I was a little disappointed that I was unable to go back after an early breakfast to grab a couple of pastries for morning tea whilst the restaurant was still open for breakfast. The wet bar is great in the pool and I had the strongest Daiquiri I have ever had in my life! I am not sure whether swimming after one of those is such a good idea and given the humidity it went straight to my head. I cannot comment on the bar as after the Daiquiri and given the humidity I was trying desperately to suck down as much water as possible! My only complaint if any would be the lack of of mid morning or afternoon opportunity to get tea/coffee or something to eat at the hotel. Otherwise this a great hotel to stay at and I would highly recommend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
An ageing resort but fabulous staff and large rooms easily made up for this. Big pool which we used more than I expected was very inviting. Free wifi in the rooms is my only suggestion as I would stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great time in Tailand, Karon beach is a great place to stay with small children and family and friends.Genuine Expedia guest review
Was a pleasant stay. Cairns very attractive. Hotel little far out by foot.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice and close to beach pool was good"
We had a pool room booked when got there at 11pm found that people were in pool looking straight into your room yet pool was supposed to be closed at 8pm so asked to be moved higher up which they did so unless you like people looking right at you while you sit on you balcony dont get this room type Internet in rooms was uselessGenuine Expedia guest review
"Booked/paid for pool access room 4 months ago.."
The hotel overbooked, not honoured by them. Tried to show us into a cheaper deluxe room with no pool access with no comment made to us (to test if we were aware I guess that that was NOT what we paid for). Offered us an 'upgrade' to a family suite - why??? We are a couple. Absolute rubbish experience that cost us over $700AUD for 5 days in a room far […] below what we paid for - unmet expectations. The hotel should offer us a FULL refund, not the difference between the room we got and what we paid for. We gave up and went and stayed at a much nicer hotel (The Marina) up the road. Go somewhere else. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel and close to the beach and restaurants"
We loved everything about Karon Sea Sands Resort. The staff upon check in were polite and helpful, the room was well appointed and clean and the location was perfect. We had friends staying up the road at the Hilton and we felt we got a real bargain compared to what they paid for about the same room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice refuge across the street from a great beach"
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We had a second floor room. It is quiet and nicely laid out, quite a bit of room including a nice window seat. Patio had 2 chairs and a table as well as a drying rack for bathing suits. Breakfast was included in our rate. It didn't change much in the 8 days we were there but we found it had a good assortment of items […] to choose from. Service was always friendly although most staff know minimal English. There are several places to shop and eat a short walk from the hotel. I would not recommend a pool access room. Although we didn't stay in one, I did notice that those who did, when sitting on their patio, had NO privacy at all. People in the pool or sitting around the pool looked right into your patio. A novel concept, but something to,think about if you're considering those rooms. Found everything very clean. Overall, we would stay here again and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice accommodation, close to the beach."
room was good, the only thing I imagined The room would be over looking the pool, but not pool side. Other then that I would sara lee recommend staying there. start very friendly and helpful and breakfast was fantastic best omeletteS ever. Location was perfect.Genuine Expedia guest review
It's a grand resort with friendly staff. Breakfast is nice and varied everyday. Delux room is good size and really good bathroom which is modern. Beach is opposite the road. Take a tuk tuk to panang for night life that takes 15min. Would stay here againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel. Great location."
Hotel was nice and clean. Buffett breakfast was great. Staff very friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach, markets and restaurants"
Lovely hotel perfectly located across from the beach ,close to markets and shops but set back so it was lovely and peaceful around the pool.We had the family suite which was fantastic -heaps of room for us all.Staff friendly and the rooms were very cleanGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great sea side location !"
A bit of construction work in the neighborhood but otherwise it was a very good stay. Helpful front desk, excellent housekeeping, very good location. The breakfast was ample but could do with menu changes.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely pool and excellent pool apbarman"
We enjoyed the whole experience, the only thing that would be good is if the pool fountains could be on a timer as they are quite noisy when you are relaxing around the pool.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location to shopping and other cities"
Really goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fine with a few issues"
Good location but pool closes early and Internet is free for only 1 hr per day. Other hotels of this caliber generally have free Internet. Clean rooms and good breakfast and good serviceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"more then happy, family stay"
we travelled with 2 children (7 & 5 yrs) and could not have been happier. staying in a family, 2 bedroom suite, we had almost too much space, with 2 bathrooms and a great balcony over the pool. great pool and great location. thank you for a very relaxing, pleasant stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We loved staying here!"
We loved staying here! It has the feeling of a small hotel even though it has 90 or so rooms. Our family booked two rooms (pool access). Parents in one room, three adult children in the other. It was spotlessly clean. White sheets and doona covers.Location is great. Karon beach is lovely (great clean water and not so busy as other beaches) and is literally […] across the road from the hotel.3 mins walk. Shops (including a small family mart and ATM) are probably 200 metres down the road. There are shops and a market close by and lots of low price eating places (150 baht thai main courses are common). The rooms are quite spacious. I would suggest upgrading to pool access rooms- it is so fun to walk out sliding doors, open a little gate on the balcony and climb down into the pool. Regarding the breakfast- Ive seen people on Trip Advisor complain that the buffet isnt extensive enough. Well there are eggs (the omelettes are lovely), breads, cereals, varying hot foods, danishes, fruits, salads, etc so I cant understand those comments. The staff did everything we asked of them. Sometimes their English is limited but smiles and gestures always worked. The pool was lovely- open until 7 p.m. every night. Plenty of sun lounges and clean towels (you swap a ticket for a clean towel- you can take their towels with you to the beach). So we loved it and would stay here again. Noithing was too much trouble. The staff packed us breakfast boxes to take with us as we left so early on the last day. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
A fantastic hotel in a fantastic part of Phuket. We stayed for 10 days. The first 6 in a poolside room, which we recommend as the best option if available. The other 4 were in an upstairs room, which was still very nice. We were offered a room on the 4th floor which we do not recommend as the balcony has very little shade. The beach is very close and […] has lovely white sand and clear water. Karon is far more peaceful than Patong, with little hassle from street hawkers, but still plenty of entertainment, shopping etc available. The breakfast buffet provided was excellent.

"A well run hotel"
We found the hotel to be well above it's star rating. The Manager spoke to us several times to check if everything was OK. The pool was always clean and there were plenty of sun loungers and parasols. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choices.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful resort near the beach"
Room was clean and comfortable. The location couldn't be better-2 minute walk to the beach. Breakfast was wonderful. Would definately return.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was our First time to Phuket - Thailand and we wanted to stay out of Patong so we decided upon Karon Sea Sands. Shuttle bus picked us up on time from the airport and drove us into the hotel this took about an hr due to high traffic - hotel staff greated us with cold towels and a welcome drink which was great as we were tired and cranky. Hotel room […] was good I got really bad food posioning on the streets so going back to a nice hotel was good at the end of the day. There was alot of negativety with Karon but we had no major issues. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Little piece of paradise in Karon Beach"
We enjoyed our stay at the Karon SeaSands. The location of the hotel in Karon Beach was perfect as it was situated directly across the road from the beach and easy walking distance to restaurants and shopping. There is a great path along the beach towards Karta Beach if you like walking and jogging. The buffet breakfast each morning had great variety. […] The hotel manager would walk around during breakfast greeting guests and help out the staff, very impressive. The resort is small, however it was still comfortable in that there was enough seating around the pool. You'll find the beach more enjoyable with the opportunity to rent lounge chairs and sun umbrella each day. Make sure you haggle on the price. The resort is not high end, but it is well kept and clean. We had no complaints with our room, it was quiet and located at the front of the building which is well set back from the main road and the room was spacious. It was room number 323. We would definitely stay at the hotel again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Oct 14 to Oct 22 2012, 8 great nights!!!!"
My wife and I had a great stay here, I think the resort is a little dated, but it was a nice place to stay and a great location, in regards to local shops and restaurants and also with the beach right across the road. The breakfast menu was what you would expect at a 4star resort, my only criticism was with some of the staff who didn't speak very good […] English and it was a little hard to communicate sometimes, but overall I gave the karon sea sands resort 8.5 out of 10, and we will stay there again.

"Good hotel/good value"
Great hotel, close to the beach and shops just around the corner. Only complaint is that they say they are smoke free but people were smoking around the pool and on the balconies in their rooms. Good buffet breakfast. Would recommend venturing out for meals if you're after a better deal. They have a shuttle service to and from the airport. This takes […] the stress out of being bombarded by taxi drivers at the airport. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing hotel right next to the beach"
For the price, we got everything we wanted and more. Room was clean and furnitures were very nice, bed was super comfortable, they have a pool with pool bar if you didn't feel like going to the beach which is right in front of the hotel. Staff was nice and helpful but sometimes communication was hard because they didn't understand everything so we didn't […] get all the information we wanted. Air-conditioning was turned off while you were not in the room so sometimes it was pretty hot when you got the but it cooled or quite quickly. Best part was the breakfast: a chef making fresh omelettes, fresh fruits, warm goods, juices, coffee/tea, different kind of cereals, loads of bread and croissants, topped with buns and muffins - seriously, you have to experience the breakfast yourself. Amazing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel, staff morale low"
The hotel is very nice, we stayed in a pool access room which was awesome. Staff are friendly but dont seem very happy. When the general manager was there they were very efficient but otherwise a bit hit and miss. Perhaps a tip box near reception would allow tips to get to staff that would otherwise not get any..Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Clean and friendly"
We had a lovely relaxing stay at Karon Sea Strand, a family with 3 teenagers. The pool was very clean and warm, the rooms were very clean with very efficient air conditioning. The personal is kind, the breakfast diverse and the hotel is close to the beach. Lots of shops and restaurants are right beside the hotel. A nice lady provides free foot massage […] for the hotel guests at the pool area. Karon Beach is less crowded than Patong. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Perheeni viihtyi täällä hyvin joulun 2013 - kaikki toimii. Uima-allas oli hyvä ja siisti, aamiainen oli monipuolinen ja kokkikurssi hyvä. Uimaranta oli kadun toisella puolella ja Karonin kaupat lähellä.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Vi kom ned søndag 29.12.14, vi skulle vre her i 5 dager, også feire nyttår.Hotellet lå fint til, med enkelt tilgang til Karon og stranden. Kanskje ikke det mest spennende hotellet, men du får det du betaler og alt var helt ok med rom, senger, basseng etc.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Fint hotel med rigtig god beliggenhed"
Beliggenhed er perfekt, 2 min står du på stranden, og samtidigt tæt på by, restauranter og små butikker. Vi fik en upgrade på værelset, så dejligt stort værelse med stor balkon med havudsigt. Afløb i vask var dog stoppet og det blev ikke fikset i løbet af de 4 dage vi var der. Internet er gratis en time om dagen - ellers betaling. Værelset vi fik lå […] ikke i hovedbygning og kunne derfor ikke trække internet signal Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Ei pimennysverhoja, kovat sängyt, pettymys"
Olemme matkustelleet paljon eri puolilla maailmaa ja ihmettelimme kovasti tämän hotellin saamia korkeita pistemääriä. Meistä luokitus on korkeintaan 3 tähteä, jopa enemmän lähellä 2. Ensinnäkin huoneilma oli huono ja huoneessa oli kummallinen haju, mikä tarttui vaatteisiinkin.Äänieristys todella huono. Oli lukuisia yksityiskohtia, joissa haluttiin säästää. […] Aamiainen oli pettymys. Ensimmäisinä päivinä jogurtti oli pienessä kulhossa ja tuntui, että sitä oli ehkä jatkettu vedellä. Tuoreus puuttui tarjoilusta. Kahvi oli tosi mustaa ja piintynyttä. Juustona pieni siivu aina samaa sulatejuustoa, eivätkä leivätkään kovin tuoreita olleet. Eniten ihmettelen tosi kirkkaita keltaisia verhoja ja hotellin tietoihin pitäisikin korjata/poistaa tieto pimennysverhoista. Hotellin sijainti oli hyvä, mutta emme valitsisi uudelleen tätä hotellia.
