"Excellent - Loved it!"
Stayed 9 nights: Breakfast buffet - great selection and quality Room - beautiful, quiet, and good air conditioner. Bed very comfortable. Bathroom large and clean Grounds - Loved the pool - large and clean. Beautiful plants and plenty to enjoy. Staff - everyone very pleasant, helpful, and generally happy Location - great - plenty of restaurants within a short walk. I'd recommend the Elephant Cafe. Room service - ordered at 10:30 and delivered by 10:42. Great quality. Food within hotel - good, but more expensive than surrounding area. Loved everything about the place! Thank you!

"Would not stay here again"
This hotel has its ups and downs. Our room was not modern. The shower was in the bath and the building is very dated. Every single day we had to replace our room card which was VERY annoying. On the plus side the pool bar was great, Mint bar is cool and the buffet breakfast was enjoyable.

"Very nice resort"
We had a seaview room in the main hotel overlooking the pool and gardens with the beach around 400 metres away. The hotel was pretty quiet even though there were lots of guests. The Breakfast buffet was comprehensive and well stocked. The hotel is well located at the north end of Karon beach so close enough to Patong but much quieter. Karon beach is very nice and no one hassles you. There are heaps of restaurants near by and several bars and places to eat on the grounds. a very nice place to spend your holidays.

"Fabulous resort in the heart of Karon Beach"
This resort is located centrally in town, right across the road from Karon Beach but is very quiet and tranquil inside. The buffet breakfast is great to fuel-up for a busy day ahead with plenty of variety and slight variations each day. We stayed late March, it didn't seem overly busy and we had no trouble getting a chair by the pool at any time etc. The staff very lovely, bottled water was provided to our room morning and afternoon, great turn down service etc. There was a kids area but didn't see, to be a kids club as such, so wouldn't really call it a family resort ( we weren't travelling with kids). Good gym but no sauna or spa. My only two "complaints" are that the lighting in the bathroom is not great for doing makeup, and the king bed is two singles joined together so you get the really uncomfortable join in the middle. Based on our stay here we would certainly consider other Movenpick resorts in the future!

"Very pleasing stay, Ideal location"
Very pleasant stay, travelled Feb 25- March 3rd 2015 About 45mins - 1hr from Phuket Internationalal Airport. We received a free upgrade on arrival. Location was superb for us. Karon beach, Karon Bazaar (market) and Karon central are all within a short walk from the entrance/exit of the hotel. Hotel staff are very accommodating. They did not expect any tips however, were well deserving of them. Breakfast buffet was plentiful and endless amount of choice. Unfortuately we did not have time to utilise the hotels activities that were offered. The pools were fabulous!! Only negative was the mosquitos in the property, barely visible to the eye. Take insect repelent and use tiger balm to help prevent itching.

"Close to money changer, supermarket, pharmacy."
First trip to Singapore. Very nice hotel, very clean. Easy access across overhead walkway to good shopping centre with food, money changer, pharmacy, supermarket and lots of shopping. Great food court in basement. Scored a free 'city hopper tour' as part of CNY promotion, which was great, but remember to bring a hat! It was lovely up top but hot. This gave us a great first look at the city.

The best way to describe this resort is okay. Nothing sensational. Next to no water pressure in the shower. The Wi-Fi in the rooms kept dropping out - basically useless. We were obviously the black hole for wi fi reception. Rooms were a great size but very very tired. Definately need some redecorating.

"Nice, relaxing resort"
This is a nice resort and a great escape from the hustle of Patong and surrounding towns. The breakfast is great and the staff are very helpful. There is no escaping the fact however that this is an aging hotel, probably built in the 70/80s. The lobby area looks great but the rooms are dated. It's not bad by any definition, but the rooms did feel a bit of a let down. The lunch at the hotel is poor to very poor, which is a bit of a surprise given how good breakfast is. There are other places to eat nearby. All in all I think I would try another resort before booking again, but if they were full I would be happy to come back to the Moevenpick.

"Movenpick Experience"
Ok Stay. The main pool was small in comparison to the number of people being accommodated for. It was a fight to get a lounge every morning around the pool. Akthough there were 3 pools, we were onkly permitted to use the main pool. Breakfast was good although very busy. The room are old but the beds were comfortable. Our room had a view of a roof top...very exciting NOT! Our airconditioner made noise which at times kept up us. When i spoke to the reception they were happy for us to change rooms..the onky problem was there were no interconnecting rooms available.

"Not worth the price"
We stayed here for 5 nights in Jan 2015. We paid just under $300 a night for a superior king sea view room. We were a bit disappointed with the room for the price, don’t get me wrong the room was ok but not worth the money. The buffet was nice and the staff friendly and helpful, but everything had a price. We stayed at 2 other hotels in the Phuket area and most of the daily events where free. At Movenpick everything cost you money. Even their grand opening of their new bar/café The Mint, they wanted 100 Bath for you to attend. It should have been free for people staying and charge anyone else. Also at the grand opening we walked passed to see a worker standing on a handrail about 6mtrs off the ground trying to adjust a light. There were people walking under him and had he slipped not nly have killed himself but also the people below. The worst thing about this is the Manager of the hotel was not more than 20 mtrs away from this going on, I understand that this happens a lot in countries like Thailand where OHS is not a priority, but a large hotel chain like Movenpick should have the same standard across all their hotel.

"Ok hotel but struggles looking after guest numbers"
An underwhelming experience. You are treated as a number. The hotel takes too many guests for its staff to give any attention to. At best it is a 4* facility. It is a good job it has a beautiful beach on its doorstep as I believe the resort would otherwise struggle. Guests put towels on poolside chairs at 7am in the morning for the day so if you miss the time slot no pool. The table tennis tables and bats are very old. The snooker table rolls like an uncut lawn. The gym was OK and the equipment in good condition. The kids games room was OK but not much in there. The buffet breakfast in the morning resembled the first day of the January Sales - when you did reach the food it was of a good standard. The Villa accomodation we stayed in was basic and it was hit or miss whether we were given water and a turn down of the beds. The aircondition failed but it was quickly sorted out when I complained.

Movenpick Resort Karon Beach is the only place that I can think of when it comes to a blissful holiday in Phuket.

This is our first family vacation after 3 years, and we were pleasantly surprised that we were provided with a nice garden villa. Facilities are clean and "safe" for toddlers to roam around. Just have to watch out for the buggies moving about, although we noticed that they do stop when they saw our two toddlers approaching. Overall its ok place to bring your toddlers over for vacation.

"PERFECT family holiday location."
Very clean, beautiful grand lobby. Our welcome was very warm after a long journey. Rooms very well appointed. Great lighting, Beds EXCELLENT - want one this good at home. Everything we requested was granted i.e. adjoining rooms, seaview (beautiful). Only negative was that pool closed at 7pm so when we came back after long day all we wanted to do was cool off and couldn't (although we did sneak in one night). The third bed in the second room was also small. It was actually a day bed/couch that was made up as bed. Very comfortable but not good for anyone over 5 foot tall. Fortunately it was enough for our youngest child.

"Excellent location."
We had 10 days in unit in main building with outlook to the sea (which met all our expectations). Would have appreciated more comfortable seating in room but en-suite, etc., fine. Ample bottled water supplied. Nice walk through the grounds to the beach (ignore the rubbish washed up, but enjoyable swimming in clear water) and a few minutes out the main gate to access shops, market, etc. Excellent buffet breakfast available as part of our tariff with heaps of choices to meet all tastes - outstanding. Pool great and very well maintained. Prices in-hotel for bar drinks and meals exorbitant (although service and quality excellent). We purchased alcohol and other drink needs at shops just outside the hotel entrance for fraction of cost and consumed in our room. Also multiple choices for variety of meals available out in the street - some excellent Thai restaurants with top quality meals available at very low cost. Really enjoyed our stay and hope to return.

"Needs work"
The hotel was under renovation, but this May be to little too late. The grounds are good and the front was being renovated. The ocean view rooms are in the tower and a mile from the beach, ocean distance would be a better name for the room. The room was showing its age and the showers pressure was hopeless. The restaurant dinners were good but the service was terrible, the food was cold by the time you got it, a simple drinks order took half an hour. The best food was freshly cooked by the buffet chefs and because you served yourself the service was better, however I don't enjoy paying for a restaurant meal and then serving yourself. For the price their are better hotels

"Perfect location"
The hotel is located in a perfect spot at karon, but is not on the beach, its across the rd. It was undergoing renovations while we were there, so there was lots of noise and only 1 restaurant to eat at. Had we know about the building noise before we booked, we would have stayed at a different hotel. The rooms were dated, the bathroom in particular needed a refurbishment. I would not expect this from a 4.5 star hotel. The staff were excellent. The BBQ buffet on the Friday night was very poor value for money.

"Beautiful Relaxing Holiday"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Movenpick, Karon. The staff were lovely and the facilities were great. It really is the perfect destination for someone looking for a relaxing holiday whilst still having the convenience of being a short trip away from Patong and other 'touristy areas'. The only slight downfall for me was finding that our 'beach front' room was really not so. We did have views of the beach but nothing quite like the images provided for this room on the website. That being said for the price and quality of the hotel this was no big deal.
