A comfortable hotel. We enjoyed our stay there. The pool is beautiful. The room is spacious with a nice balcony. The morning breakfast is ok, I've had better but I've also had worse. I would rate this closer to a 3-3.5 star hotel. The lack of wifi in rooms was frustrating, as we are traveling around Thailand staying a few days each place and need to make reservations for travel and rooms for the next stop. Sitting in the lobby to do this wasn't my first choice.

Karon beach was our favorit out of all the Phuket beaches. This hotel was great. Right in the mix of things and the beach was steps away. Room was big. Breakfast was great.

"Woraburi Phuket - beautiful location"
Great location. Enjoyed our stay, excellent pool and spacious rooms. Beach (directly across the street)is one of the best in the world. Food service & quality as well as WiFi was spotty. I recommend the hotel.

"Karon Beach 2014"
Stayed on Karon Beach for a scuba diving trip. The hotel was nice 3-4 star. The free WIFI is only in the lobby of the hotel. The furnishing was good but could use an update. The breakfast buffet had a good variety of items to chose from. The service was lacking in serving coffee, tea etc. The cost was very reasonable for the hotel and services.

"Position is good, facility and staff just so so"
Hotel is big, near the beach (across the road). Room is OK, no good no bad, just so so. Some of the rooms on the 1st floor can go into the swimming pool directly, that's funny. The pizza taste good. They have shuttle bus to Patong twice a day at 12:30 and 19:00, single way. That's convenient. Otherwise, you have to pay 300B at least by TukTuk. On the other hands, Some of the staff at the receiption are not very polite, not like other Thai people I've seen in Samui and Chiang Mai.

"A place to relax with family or friend"
Convinence spot with shops and food around. I like the alternate choice of swimming pool is just at your door step if you stay ground level. But music is too loud from pool side bar. Basically to relax with friends or family. Outdoor activity are focus at the beach side.

"Nice hotel, good location across from beach"
At first we were a little disappointed when we arrived at the hotel. It had been advertised as a 4-star but priced very reasonably. I would put it more at a 3-star. We stayed 7 nights and by the 2nd night we loved it. Hotel staff was friendly and personable. We could walk across the street to the beach. Karon Beach is just what we wanted - quiet and clean. As for the hotel, we loved the pool and spent most of our afternoons there rather than the beach. Beach was hot, but hotel pool was shady with good music playing in the background. Beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was okay (nothing special) but good variety of breads and decent coffee. We will happily go back to this hotel again.

"Decent hotel, but not a 4 star"
This was a decent hotel, but don't kid yourself in thinking this is a 4 star, it is at best a 3, but with little hot water and not able to setup shuttle service, I think it is a 2 star. Room was clean and large. Pool is great. Across from ocean/beach.

"Phuket not worth it"
Arrived after 2p.m. and still had to wait over an hour for room to be ready. Room ended up being quite damp because the extractor fan in the bathroom was old and worked very poorly, and the air conditioning is also old and cools the room alright but get no heat from it to help dry the room. WiFi only available in the hotel foyer unless you want to pay then it is an extra 200baht per day, so not worth it. I won't be going back to Phuket as it is all a rip-off with taxi's and the prices they charge for everything. Enjoyed our stay in Chiang Mai far better and you can really barter there.

"Close to beach, needs maintenance & showing age"
Requires much maintenance, we stayed in pool access room which would've been lovely except we had to watch out for the resident mouse (a big one). The aircon was too noisy & so were other guests. Breakfast was fair but some of it wasn't covered from flies. Room had a musty damp smell. Towels grey & very thin.

"Good location"
The only good thing was the breakfasts, everything else was mot up to the standard we would normally expect, towels were off white water was brown when first turned on and all in room tea coffee soap etc was rationed. It is a hotel geared for large groups of tourists mainly Asians who have the tendency to go knocking on doors loudly and banging things around in rooms at any time of night or day without the courtesy of thinking of other people. Felt ripped off when we ordered a cocktail, staff were speaking in their own language and laughing, we did here australian mentioned in their conversation so we perceived that we were being made fun of, and believe they overcharged us by about 100baht nobody likes to feel like that but we were not going to make a fuss over it. The desk staff very nice.

"Close to beach but rooms and pool old and tired"
Too many missing tiles at pool. Say they offer wifi Internet access but it is only in the hotel lobby so that is deliberately misleading. Staff ok and bus to bang la road one way from the hotel goes twice a day which saves u 400 baht if you go by tuktuk. I moved next door to the baan karenbori and it is much much better for the same price.

"3* not 4"
Stayed for 10 nights at this hotel. To me it's more a 3* rather than a 4* hotel as rated. The hotel was a bit delapidated but clean and tidy. The big come down for the hotel was the breakfast. The hotel needs a good manager to run the dinning room and sort the problems out. The chair covers where dirty and tables not cleaned and set proper for the next set of guests. If food was dropped no the floor under the table, no one seemed bothered to lift it so nothing was done about it. They kept running out of spoons, cups etc and when you ask someone to get you something they went away or just stood and looked at you stupid. So I got used to sorting my own problems out. They had a cook to cook ommellets and fried eggs but she kept going away. One morning I had the waiter cooking my egg.,

"Lovely Woraburi"
This was the second time we stayed at Woraburi Karon. We did notice some maintenance issues, but this did not affect our stay! Great location and fantastic beach. Breakfast leaves you longing for more, but that seems to be a common thread in Thailand. It is definitely worth it to upgrade to a pool access room!

We had a deluxe suite, which wasn't exactly like the pictures. Tiles were loose on the floor many cracked ones, the pool was simmaler with cracked tiles everywhere.. The beach across the road I never got to after what looked like a sewage river running between that and the beach with looked like a war zone! Phuket is not a relaxing holiday destination my advice never go!

"old fashion"
Stayed there for 4 nights, check in was smooth until I got told I had to pay for wifi ! I booked the room with wifi, but the staff at the counter seems like 'my way ' ,but I managed to get my free wifi service back with my booking agent calling in to confirmed that my payment was included, the problem with this hotel is , staffs are all like walking dead ! not friendly at all , I've never ever had such experience before, but then, with such low price , what do you expect? Anyway, room was ok, little old, getting into my room was a problem again, because they're still using the old traditional metal key with a big plastic keyholder ! Took me like 2 mins standing outside the door fighting with the rusty key to put into another rusty keyhole was annoying !th. Hotel was good to sleep in , nothing else I could say.

"Seen better days"
This hotel has clearly seen better days. The only saving grace is that it was reasonably clean and the staff were helpful. The gym was terrible and pool, although nice, is not particularly good to relax by given the taste of loud music from the poolside bar. Services offered really were priced to gouge the guests. Don't even think about using the 'spa' there and we were overcharged for a taxi to local attractions. After finding out what local taxi rates should be at least negotiated a lower (but still high) rate to our next destination. Having a hotel try and rip guests off is clearly a bad sign and left a bitter taste.

"Lovely hotel in good location"
Stayed for 4 nights in a pool access room which is well worth paying the extra for. Great location just across the road from the beach. Hotel in middle part of Karon Beach so only a few bars and restaurants nearby but only a short 10 minute walk to the north or south of Karon Beach - north side is in our opinion better. Plenty of bars and restaurants to chose from. Cannot fault the hotel. Lovely pool and great breakfast. Although not a problem to us 90% of the guests were Russian with only a very few from UK, Australia or elsewhere.
