"A Very Relaxing Break"
Our family of three stayed in the ocean view room at Movenpick in October 2013. Overall we were very happy with our choice of hotel and enjoyed a very relaxing break. The pool is great and the rooms comfortable. We enjoyed the location away from the hustle and bustle of Patong, but still with ample food choices and maket shopping nearby. We would be […] happy to stay at the hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
In short, I wouldn't come back or recommend this hotel to anyone. Service was poor, especially in the restaurant at buggy. My room smelt, hot water kept turning cold in shower, buggy hardly showed up. Overall, a big disappointment.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Resort, Location and Vacation"
We had a great time at Movenpick Resort. The deluxe garden villa with private terrace was superb as was the location between the lobby and the beach. The gardens of the hotel are amazing and very romantic and therapeutic to walk through, the buffet breakfast was great, the three pools provided excellent recreation, Karon Beach is very close by and was […] fantastic and there are many great restaurants just outside the property . The service at the hotel was 5 star especially the staff cleaning the rooms and maintaining the property. We arrived late at night and awoke to pooled water on the bathroom floor. The hotel staff responded by immediately moving us to a new room. They even came and moved our luggage. We would definitely return to Movenpick if we return to Phuket in the future.

"Perfect place to holiday as couple"
My partner and I stayed in the penthouse plunge pool villa it was great spacious looks much nicer in real life than to photo's. We enjoyed our stay. The resorts grounds are kept well, staff was so friendly and very catering to your needs. Hotel facilities were great, food in resort from all restaurant was nice. Recommend for a couples wanting to stay […] out of the busy patong and still close only 10min from main shopping ect. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel, close to everything."
The Hotel was really nice with great amenities and the staff were extremely friendly and were very helpful. It was very close to shops and the beach, or a short ride to Patong. The pool area was also very nice and great for kids.Genuine Expedia guest review
"child friendly n big hotel"
the hotel is overall good . the pool upstairs in the room is not useful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location near beach"
We found the gardens and grounds to be maintained at a very high standard. The hotel food was also of a high standard. Breakfast was a bit chaotic due to how busy the breakfast area was during our stay however the standard of the breakfast food was high.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A great place for families."
My family and I recently holidayed here. Although we were in 2 different rooms and a fair bit away from each other this was ok. We had teenage kids (one 20 and one just 18) they were referred to as " the children" they were in the main building. My husband and I got upgraded to a premium suite very close to the beach. The breakfast was sensational, […] very good value. The location of the hotel was ideal for us, we didn't want anything too noisy. The fact that we went in "off season" was also a bonus. Very friendly staff and the atmosphere was great! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great family holiday"
Stayed with hubby and 6-year-old daughter and we all had a ball. Great location, friendly, helpful and knowledgable staff and Karon Beach is great for families looking to avoid the craziness of Patong but still be close to all the Phuket attractionsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to beach and amenities..convenient"
It was good but not great but expected for a big hotel like this. Takes a long walk to get to the room from lobby.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Our beach holiday"
The service was excellent, the only negative was a leaky ceiling from the air on, and a buzzer started at midnight and so a technician had to visit to fixit. Was surprised that the general upkeep of the apartments/villas was not great. The cleanliness particularly was excellent, along with the politeness of the staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Superb Service and facilities"
Room was great, clean. Staff were professional, very friendly. Hotel was awesome and amazing. The hotel leads to the beach where most of the hotel's restaurants are. Free wifi for guests. I would definitely want to go back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed 11 days, very relaxing. Staff were very accommodating. This was our second stay, and will return again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall very good resort. Stay in the villas as they allow you to access exclusive pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
lovely resort, caring staff and plenty to do for all the family.Genuine Expedia guest review
"family oriented hotel"
We booked 2 villa with has a connecting door. it is perfect for house 4 adults & 2 children. The rooms are clean & very comfortable. The children loved their double decker bed. Exclusive use of private pool & breakfast dinning area that comes with villa booking is worth it cos the main pool is too crowded.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overal A Great Relaxing & Fun Stay."
Really Enjoyed our Stay. Our Daughter 9yrs old loved it especially Pool, Activities including Free Scuba Diving Trial. Buffet Breakfast was excellent, Cocktails at the Pool Bar great. The Location of the Hotel close to Shopping, Beach and Various Restaurant is a must.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A truly relaxing stay by the beach"
My friend & I (23 years old) were looking for a relaxing holiday but with access to nightlife & that is what we got! Stayed 22nd June - 1st July 2013. Taxi: We paid 1500 baht from airport organised through the hotel. On the return we used a tour guide who took us for 800 baht. There is no free WIFI, it's 250 Thai baht per 24 hours for the smallest amount […] of data which I found disappointing. I purchased WIFI a few times & when we checked out it had been removed from our bill & was told as I had booked through Expedia I got free WIFI! I didn't know that so it was very frustrating finding out when leaving - I would have used it 24/7! Breakfast was delicious -caters for a variety of cultures. Mix of guests staying at the hotel, quite a few families. To access the beach it is a bit of a walk through the hotel if you're staying in the main building but the hotel grounds are lovely so it's a pleasant walk Staff are very accommodating. My friend was ill at the start of our stay & the hotel sent up flowers for her. Short walk to shops and restaurants in the town. We used the tours suggested by the hotel which were great fun & reliable. Boat trip to Phi Phi Island was well worth the money. Hotel restaurants were expensive but excellent quality. We ate at OrientAsia & the food was delicious. Few bars in town which seemed quiet - we visited at the start of low season so perhaps why. We got Tuc Tuc's to Patong (15 mins drive) for 300-400 baht each way, busy nightlife there! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A great stay !"
We had a garden villa which gave us access to the Coconut Pool - a little quieter than the main pool. The rooms were very spacious and well organised and clean. The staff were always helpful. The buffet breakfast was huge. All in all we had a great stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very comfortable, very relaxing - I will be back"
I had a great time at this resort. We booked the plunge pool villa for 5 days and were upgraded to the penthouse plunge pool villa at no extra cost. The room was large and very comfortable. It looked exactly as it does in the hotel website photos. Our private rooftop pool was perfect for cooling off and enjoying the afternoon breeze after a day at the […] beach or sight-seeing. We ate at a couple of the restaurants in the resort and the food was very good and the service was great. The hotel car service is very good. For a reasonable price we had a driver for 4 hours who took us wherever we wanted to go and waited patiently at each place until we were ready to drive on. This was a good way to design our own morning of sightseeing without going on an organised tour. The location is great. Close to shops and restaurants and Karon beach, and only a short taxi ride to Patong if you want more excitement/crowds (taxi/tuktuk stands at the beachside of the resort).

"Huge hotel, marvelous location"
Great relaxing 3 days, very close to the beach to view the sunset and enjoy massageGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great place frendly staff the beach nice send restaurants with greatvfoodGenuine Expedia guest review
The service was faultless and the hotel was clean and well maintained. The real downfall would certainly be the sheer size of the resort. We stayed in a pool villa however it was just too spread out to really enjoy the resort. The surrounding neighbourhoos was also fairly bland. Sure there was a nice beach however not much else worth noting.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Poor resort"
It is very different than I saw in the picture in website. it is old hotel and staff is not friendly. and compare it with other resort in Phuket that I stay on it for 3 days It is very poor compare it with pricesGenuine Expedia guest review
"What an awesome Resort!"
IT was a great hotel to stay in - the staff were very kind and delightful. I would very much recommend the hotel to others and want to come back sometime in the future.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Family friendly hotel"
Nice hotel for families including child care and ursey onsite if needed. The staff is very friendy and very helpful getting a Taxi etc. The hotel is a bit older but at all in good condition. Taking room with ocean is not really worth it as you pay a lot more and have the pool in front of and the ocean is quite far away. There's a grocery shop open all […] day until 10pm very convenient to get quick water etc. Just 10 minutes by feet yu can reach a lot of restaurants and a market you get everything.

"Very nice hotel on Karon Beach"
Movenpick is one of only two beachside hotels in Karon worth staying at, with the other being the much more expensive Hilton. The facilities are great with many restaurants to chose from which we found to be much better than the nearby local food which was of poor quality for a mostly Russian clientele. The gardens are fabulous and offer guests a retreat […] from the heat and the overwhelming crowds and noise of Phuket. Access to the other more crowded beaches nearby like Patang are cheap and taxis are everywhere. Overall a very nice, clean, safe and affordable hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Service does not fully much the quality of the environment but there is very little to complain about. Can strongly recommend for families.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Hotel staff were so friendly and were so helpful when we needed somthing. The Resort is 5 star you couldnt ask for a better place to stay in. Loved itGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ok but won't be back"
Good hotel & location but a few issues with service. After careful consideration of room type to book when travelling with a toddler we booked a family 2br villa for various reasons over the residence (garden setting, ground level, close to main kids pool & gardens). Arrived to be told family villa not available & we were now in the residences despite […] probably 10-15 emails with reservation dept discussing details before our stay. Not impressed as we were a long way from main pool & gardens (close to beach) which would be fine for older children but was an inconvenience for us. Being upstairs was also not what we wanted. Also booked massage then was told I couldn't have it as I was pregnant. I queried this as I am a doctor (and there is no reason I can't have a massage at this stage of pregnancy) to be told "policy". Not good enough when this is not mentioned in the brochure or when booking but other spa treatments were good. Anyway, this marred our stay & I doubt we will be back.

This resort is close to the action of Phuket island without the irritation of rowdy tourists and the hustle bustle of a popular destination. Totally loved it and planning our next stay. Service from hotel staff was prompt and always courteous. Even the fitness centre was well equipped and serviced well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Karons best location - our best location"
This hotel is in one of the best locations in Karon, within easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. We found the staff were extremely friendly and helpful when required and there were many activities including free SCUBA diving lessons, Thai boxing and Thai cooking available. The range of food for breakfast was amazing and the 4 course seafood […] dinner for 690 baht at the Orient Asia restaurant was excellent. Overall we had a great stay and would highly recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent for a quite getaway"
The hotel is positioned in a lovely area with excellent staff who really made you welcome and a very enjoyable stay and would be visiting again.Genuine Expedia guest review
The resort was beautiful. The grounds are magnificent. The rooms are spacious. The workers are very well mannered and helpful. A very pleasurable stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent resort room decor in need of a refurb"
Food and beverages excellent. Pools and facilities excellent. Rooms clean and functional but must be getting close to refurb as they are dated.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Heaven on Earth"
We were in awe when we arrived at this beautiful hotel. Not to mention in the heart of Karon Beach. Sea & shops at our doorstep. We loved this place, food & frinedly staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Movenpick is the pick"
The villa with plunge pool out from our own verandah was sensational and very private. Large bedroom and bathroom with the deepest, longest marble bath ever seen. Location of Movenpick very good for shopping (next door has a huge gallery of stalls) and better than Karon beach. Grounds beautifully maintained and villa guests have exclusive access to […] one of three pools. Plenty of restaurants although surprisingly not well patronised. We were happy with the selection and quality of the food but no doubt it is cheaper to eat outside the complex. Beach opposite the Movenpick. Couldn't fault our stay.

Great resort. Good location. Stayed in garden villa after checking into standard room well worth the extra cost. Totally different experience being in the gardens as to staying in the standard room which was small and noisy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic - would definately return"
What a fantastic hotel! From the minute we arrived to the minute we left we experinced exceptional service. They even delivered a cake to the room on my husband's birthday with no prompting from me! The sand bar was a fantastic place to relax - especially during happy hour!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Big hotel chain but doesn't quite deliver"
We had an initial incident with check-in where we were left to wait for 2 hours. The reception staff did however offer us a free upgrade in order to rectify the inconvenience. The hotel grounds and gardens are large and well kept. There are 3 swimming pools and a dive center attached to the one closest to the beach entrance. The main pool closest to […] reception has a swim up bar with kids area and slide, kiddies looked like they were having a ball, however not really for couples looking for a bit of a quieter setting which is a shame as it would have been nice to have made use of the pool bar. The 3rd pool offered a more relaxing experience and still came with food and drink service. The room was great, however we found it to be a little "tired". Cracks in the walls and peeling paint. The bath never really enticed us as the room had a bit of this old/used feeling and appearance. We had a plunge pool out front and outdoor shower which was great to cool off under. The breakfast offered a good range of variety and a pleasant setting next to the main pool. As the hotel is rather large with many guests, the pacifica (breakfast restaurant) was busy and produced food in bulk. The quality of food was average as a result. Other restaurants within the hotel were expensive and we chose to step outside the grounds of the hotel for all other meals. The price of the hotel's spa treatments were also exorbitant but again there are plenty of massage parlours just 100m outside the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"away from hustle and bustle but not too far"
Movenpick has a certain 'older' style about it's hotel and bungalows. That being said it has been very well maintained. The main hotel tower where we stayed in a Deluxe Ocean View room had a view of the sea, albeit from 300-400m back with the sand being obstructed by trees. The room was very large and always perfectly clean. The buffet breakfast was […] very good with a good variety of different cuisine including many 'made while you wait' options. If I were to stay in the Karon Beach area again I would probably stay here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The best family hotel @ Karon"
This was not my first visit to Phuket but that was my first stay at the Mövenpick resort. The resort is huge with a lot of facilities including 4 swimimng pools and offering many types of rooms type. Since we are a family of 4 we choosed the 2 bedroom residence. Very nice, clean and comfortable room, infact we felt at home. The hotel staff with no exception, […] from the moment we checked in were very welcoming, and helpful. I strongly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Phuket.

"Movenpick did not disappoint"
We were thrilled to be upgraded to a garden villa at check in. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is extremely well maintained and the grounds are green and gorgeous. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quieter Phuket experience, but still wanting to be close to local attractions.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great rooms but average service"
Beautiful setting on Karon Beach and lived our penthouse room with rooftop plunge pool. Unfortunately not enough staff or poolside chairs to fully cater for the number of guests.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Movenpick Karon Beach - pretty good"
Overall the hotel was nice. The rooms are starting to get a bit tired (we were in an Ocean view room), I think it's the use of the dark wood, however, they were well maintained, clean and comfortable. The main lobby and pool area and grounds are lovely. The resort is huge and it was nice to have a few pools to choose from. The staff were friendly, however […] the front desk staff and concierge should have a little more local knowledge about activities in Karon Beach such as the days the Temple markets run and recommendations for restuarants, tailors etc. The resort was good for young kids, they loved the slide in the main pool! Kids club was a bit disappointing as the kids were bored in there. It's quite small and limited with activities although the staff seem really lovely. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Brilliant in all measures and have reccomended to 3 people already and advised 1 friend to cancel reservation at La Meridian Phuket which they have done and booked in for 2 weeks at Movenpick.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pay extra for a better room"
We were staying at the hotel in the tsunami and the hotel had no emergency evacuation plan, no sirens which is unacceptable. The warning system was basically staff telling people. We stayed in a basic room, it was out dated, dark, small and very noisy. Speaking to other people who stayed in the villas, I would recommend paying the extra for a better […] room. The grounds were really beautiful and the staff were excellent and did everything they could in the tsunami to assist us. The day spa was also very good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The stay was outstanding! This was our 2nd time staying at the Karon Movenpick. We are already planning a 3rd visit in December. The residence room was defiantly worth the price and we will utilize again. The only issue we had was that the A/C went out in the master bedroom and the level of maid service could be a tad bit better - it seemed as if the […] floors, table top and counters were always cleaned in a hurry. Other than that, this is a great hotel for families with small children. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
