This hotel met all our expectations. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The rooms were clean, had all basic amenities and the pool access from the room was the best. The pool stretches out as it goes through all the rooms, so it never felt crowded. They also have 2 wet bars in the pool which is very convenient and they had happy hour specials. […] The beach is about a 10 min walk form the hotel but we didn’t mind that as there were many tiny restaurants and local shops/ markets to explore. The hotel does offer a complimentary shuttle to the beach. The food at the hotel restaurant was delicious and they were very accommodating to our dietary needs. Overall, an amazing experience and would love to go back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Loved the pool and rooms but did not like Phuket"
The location is terrible with no sidewalks to walk to anything so you have to walk in the street with all the crazy drivers and motorbikes. It is really far from the beach but the beach is so packed with umbrellas that it isn't even a great beach. The food was not great though we loved getting room service by boat. And the room service staff was fantastic. […] The beds were really hard also. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic pools, grounds"
I stayed at the hotel for 5 days with family and friends, and was overall pleased with the hotel. The best thing is that every room is pool access 24 hours. They are like long canals that connect to a few bigger pools (those are open until 8pm to guests). So if you like relaxing near or in the pool, swimming, etc then this is a great hotel for you. […] Breakfast is a buffet and it is great, with a variety of nice foods that change every day. The regular restaurant is also very nice. The rooms are clean and pretty, and the hotel grounds are very beautiful. The only negative points are the location and speed of service. It often took quite a while to get your order at the restaurant, and while it did not bother me as i wasn't in a rush, i sense it could annoy some people. The other problem was it was quite a bit from the beach. Probably a 15-20 min walk for the average person. The hotel ran a beach drop off service but it was only twice a day and only to the beach, not back. On saying this, the hotel grounds, room, and pools more than make up for this but if you are big on being next to the beach, then maybe this hotel won't be for you. The beach at karon is also better and cleaner than the one in patong, which is another bonus. The nightlife is also less lively than in patong, which can be good or bad depending on what you want. Overall though I was extremely pleased with the hotel and would definitely go back, as the few negatives pale to the positives here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic week away"
The service given was friendly and helpful. the room access direct to pool was great. Room was clean and spacious and the variety of food at the buffet breakfast was enjoyed. Would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Okay resort, poor area"
Another resort built to the formula. Very clean, good service. But in a boring, traffic-ridden area, so I had to walk 15 mins through heavy traffic to the beach each day. Motorcycle taxis and old fashioned tuk tuks seems to have been banned - so now only gleaming modern bemo-type taxis are available, which are absurdly expensive by Thai standards. In […] other words something of the old Thailand has been lost. The Thais have had 50 years of tourism, yet they still don't get the idea of clean, useable public spaces. No sidewalks for example. No parks. Karon's beaches are strewn with rubbish & construction mess. Sigh. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Peaceful Resort with great pools & garden"
Very peaceful, lovely gardens. Room was clean & comfortable only thing I found was the chair in room was very uncomfortable, would be better to have small lounge or chaise. Beds are very hard you will need a mattress topper & shower could do with a good scrub. Pay extra & use the day spa onsite as it was one the best massage I've had. The staff that […] do speak english are willing to help or join in, one thing I found was to many staff use their personal mobiles instead of focusing on guests.

"Gr8 place to stay ..."
Stayed for 2weeks and loved it.....the staff and rooms were fabulous. Swim up pool was put to good use and was so nice to have room service delivered by a baby gondola. Minimart and everything close by so in a very good spot in Karon...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet and relaxing"
A good resort, quiet but within walking distance of beach and markets.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Old but clean"
The air conditioner is not very functioning and no teeth brush supply. Overall, cheap and worth to stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Direct pool access is great"
This was our 2nd stay at this hotel. The staff remembered us from our previous stay 14 months ago. The direct pool access is great and the staff are happy and friendly. The hotel could do with a bit of general maintenance as its looking a bit tired. If you're hoping for a nice comfy bed you may be a bit disappointed. The beds are very hard. Overall, […] it's good value for money. You probably won't find a room with direct pool access cheaper anywhere. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I recently visited Access for 3 nights with my boyfriend. We decided to book the suite with a private pool. We found the room to be really lovely; clean and spacious and the pool was a great treat. On reflection, we actually decided that if we do stay again, we probably wouldn't spend the extra on the private pool villa, as the other rooms all had pool […] access and looked just as nice. The location is slightly out of town - its a good 15 minute walk to the beach and nightlife - which is fine in normal weather, but be warned, it is very very muggy and hot, so you start to sweat as soon as you walk outside. Add that to a 15 min walk along a main road with no pavements, and its likely you'll be a bit of a sweaty, grubby mess by the time you get to dinner! You can get a tuk tuk for only THB200 though, which is great fun, and probably a better option :) I'd HIGHLY recommend going to Bamboo Kitchen for dinner - its fantastic food! And don't miss happy hour at the hotel pool bar - the bar staff are really friendly, and its great to socialize with the other guests and hear recommendations for activities etc. The buffet breakfast had SO MUCH CHOICE! It was pretty hard to choose from fresh fruit, cereal, cooked breakfast and even things like Spaghetti Bolognese! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Luxury at a very good price"
My wife saw this hotel on Tripadvisor and thought it looked very nice. It had some very good reviews and that is why we booked it. We were very happy that it turned out as good as it looked on the internet. The staff were great, food was good and not too expensive.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A mixed review"
The Access Resort has a certain charm. It's not up to par with the resorts I have stayed at before but it tries hard. It is located near Karon beach, which is much nicer than the crowded Patong Beach. The staff are pleasant and happy to help, although lacking in the polished experience you get from an international chain. The room pool access is lovely […] and was one of my favourite parts of the hotel. We went over Christmas and the shows they put on were very charming - although quite noisy for the rooms facing the main pool. On the negative, our toilet blocked three times, the WiFi is a bit inconsistent and the Karan Beach taxi fare is ridiculous considering it is a five minute walk. A Overall, it's got some work to do and seems a little worn but I would recommend it if you are looking for somewhere 3-4 star and that is really good value for money. Also, just to note, it is quite far from the airport - although that's not unusual for Phuket. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"6 nights at Access Resort & Villas in Karon"
My wife and I stayed at the Access Resort in Karon for 6 nights. The resort was beautifully landscaped, the pools were always clean and the rooms were perfect for us (the bed was very hard but we actually slept better than at home). The staff were very friendly and helpful and always greeted us whenever passing by. We ventured out in to Karon and ate […] at the local restaurants and they were great especially Seafood at Karon... $30 for a whole lobster! We also found an awesome aussie bar called The Roadhouse. A few nights a week they have a local blues band which is amazing, I would love to have them at the local pub here in Adelaide. I did have a couple of all complaints about the resort but it's very minor... The pool closed at 7pm so they could dose with chlorine but I thought that was way too early especially with the place lit up like a Christmas tree at night the swim up bar would have got much more use. The only other thing was that toilet paper could not be flushed, it had to be put in the bin. This took some getting used to but it's actually very common practice over there. In all the trip was amazing and we can't wait to get back there!!! We would definitely consider going back to Access Resort and we would happily use Expedia again. Also we flew with Air Asia which everyone complained about in the reviews I read before leaving but they weren't that bad. They are a budget airline and you get what you pay for... I'll fly with them again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"in need of a refurbishment."
green wing pool is old and many broken tiles and features. Old palm fronds in pool for 2 days.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Resort with Huge pool"
We arrive at 1am, staff were friendly and welcoming. We had two adjoining rooms with our teenage kids and both were huge. Its a bit of a walk to the beach and Karon main shopping strip but lots to see on the way.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value for money"
Not the newest resort but is good value for money. The pools are nice and the swim up bars are handy - however the pools need a bit of work, tiles are breaking off and some of the steps were very rough, you could cut your toe/foot on them. However this is minor stuff - the staff are friendly, the rooms are great and having the pool at your doorstep […] is awesome. Breakfasts were great, I suggest ordering the poached eggs! Didn't use the spa at the resort because there is one just at the end of the driveway which was really cheap and fantastic, got a massage everyday!! Easy walk into Karon central and heaps of nice restaurants and bars to choose from. You'll love it!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I have recently been to the access and for the 2nd time in two years, absolutely loved it. Fantastic staff, wonderful service, beautiful hotel and the pool access from every room is brilliant! Would highly recommend!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Direct pool access"
Comfortable resort that ticked all the boxes for us. Nice comfortable place to relax for people on a budget. Best feature is the swim out rooms. Facilities starting to look rundown and location a slight detractor.Genuine Expedia guest review
The grounds here were really quite lovely and very quiet. I would go for the blue wing as then you are not right on the main pool or the restaurant. Bit of a hike to eat out but still only 1 km. The best of the hotels in this area. Lovely rooms maintained to a high standard.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very satisfied guests!"
The resort is beautiful! The staff are so friendly and helpful. The pools were very cute, and spacious. It is amazing having the pool right on your back doorstep. If any couple are wondering which resort in Karon Beach they should try, you cannot look past Access! We will definitely be back!Genuine Expedia guest review

"A Hotel Value for Money in Convenient Location."
The hotel was very good value for our money considering they were all pool access rooms. It was on Karon beach which was next to the most popular Paying beach so getting around was very convenient. My only disappointment was the fact that the resort was quite rundown but having to keep in mind that you pay for what you get. Still considering everything […] else, this place gives you real bang for your buck. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Poor hotel. The hardest bed that I have ever slept on. Paid for breakfast in package but they didn't on our it. The hotel is far from anything. There are so many nice resorts in phuket, unless you are on a tight budget and get an extremely good rate, don't botherGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for relaxing and sightseeing"
Absolutely loved the direct pool access from my room. There are several 'canal-like' pools that are accessible to all rooms on each 'canal'. This meant that the pools weren't very crowded, and there was plenty of room to swim and relax on lilos and pool rings without getting in each other's way. The staff were very friendly and the food was great. There […] was a good variety of food at the buffet breakfast each morning. There are air-conditioned taxis available at the resort to drive you anywhere. These are private taxi drivers who pay a fee to the hotel in exchange for hotel customers. Their rates are very reasonable. We hired one for 5 hours for only 1500 baht #approx. $A50# and were taken everywhere we wanted to go. The driver dropped us off at different places and waited for us until we were ready to go to the next place. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel but very hard beds"

Slipping into the pool from your balcony and swimming to the pool bar were the highlights of a relaxing stay here. The staff were warm, friendly and accommodating. The room was great from the four poster bed to the window seat to the great balacony with a fan for muggy days. The restaurant offered both Thai and western food. Great value for money!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good value and friendly staff"
Having pool access from the room was always going to be amazing, which it was! Hotel starting to feel a little aged and tired but it did look like they were starting some work and the place grows on you. 10 min walk to the beach was fine and was nice to be just far enough away from the busy strip. I would recommend booking the Blue wing, as we were […] initially in the green wing which was much more dated but then paid (and bartered) to upgrade to blue wing which was worth it. Hotel staff were very friendly, place was good value for money and we would happily stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

liked it so much are staying for another fortnight. Great resort, pool access rooms are fantastic, staff very friendly and helpful, resort a little out of the way but easy walk to karon. all in all we are having a great holiday and feel really relaxedGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Bekvämt med kvalité"
Mycket trevligt hotell, med mysiga små terasser som alla leder rakt ned i poolen. Kliv ut från rummet, kliv ned i poolen och simma bort till baren! Läget är inte 100% då det ligger en bit ifrån stranden, men hotellets Taxi-service står alltid redo utanför entrén om man inte vill promenera 10 min ned till sanden.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Отличный отель для расслабления"
Отдыхали с мужем в отеле с 20 сентября по 05 октября 2014, отель очень понравился. Зеленая ухоженная территория, красивая подсветка вечером, справа от нашего номера открывался отличный вид на горы. Жили в Blue wings, номер удобный, просторный, огромная и удобная кровать с балдахином. В ванной есть отдельно душ и отдельно сама ванная. Выход из номера […] на небольшую террасу с шезлонгами и доступом к бассеину, в котором можно было плавать в любое время дня и ночи. В основном в отеле живут китайцы и европейцы, которых практически и не видно, так что по вечерам тишина и спокойствие. От отеля до пляжа идти минут 15-20, можно срезать через территорию других отелей, но мы предпочитали прогуляться. Рядом с отелем большой и дешевый супермаркет, много кафешек и массажных салонов. Около супермаркета часто стояла по вечерам макашница с вкусной и дешевой лапшей. Ставлю отелю твердую пятерку. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
