"Nice Family Vacation."
Nice hotel with clean rooms and friendly staff. However, beware of add on charges including 1- Wifi (Extremely poor Wifi and that too is not free THB200 per day), 2- Water (No potable water and bottled water is charged at a high rate). Near to Karon beach but has no sea view.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Far from the airport."
The propriety next to the hotel is under construction so we had to change room because of the noise but we were ok after the change. They said the construction will be until october so I recommend people to stay at that hotel after then if you want to sleep well!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Our villa was the best part of our stay - very roomy! The serpentine pool just outside the door was wonderful! There were a few problems with electricity, water and the DVD player, but all were corrected. The breakfast was somewhat limited, but good coffee! If you have transportation or not , Karon BHeach is close by and lovely!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very nice resorts"
quiet, comfort hotel with only 30 single houses. nice pool and spaGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, clean resort"
The resort was nice over-all. At the time of our stay there was some construction, but the staff was very proactive about ensuring that it did not bother us. They offered to move our room, and let us know before there was a risk of anything bothering us. The breakfast was nice. The western style food left much to be desired though the thai style food […] was generally pretty good. The pool itself is quiet, with a nice swim up bar, but there are no views of the beach, so don't expect that. The beach is across a busy road, and down a walkway near a pond. It's about a 5-10 minute walk from the resort. There are nearby restaurants, about 2-3 minutes away, but the major strip of Karon beach is more like a 10-15 minute walk. The resort itself is clean, and the staff if very courteous and friendly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Fantastic retreat! Very comfortable and relaxing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pleasant hotel but has policy issues"
The hotel is very pleasant and comfortable, close to the beach with nice pool. Yet when you arrive you find out that there are "policies" which either cost more money or limit your freedom. Internet and transportation to the city cost extra and not cheap.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything is very nice and clean. All on staff are very attentive and friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location close to Karon Beach and convenient"
This was the best vacation! Karon Beach is relaxing. The Village Resort was a pleasure to stay at. Friendly staff. Comfortable and clean accommodation with nice privacy. Fully recommended!Genuine Expedia guest review
I paid $88 a night for a tropical villa and it was definitely worth the money. Excellent environment!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice location for those who don't like noisy night life. Beautifull garden with nice pool inside, spacious and comfortable rooms.10-15 minuts walk from the beach and all shops and restaurants area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Low value for money"
Hotel is quite old & decors are half finished (e.g. they vs installed big cement baths where they didn't put water and just put lights with cabels - that looked as if we were staying on the construction site!), beach is far away. When you walk out to the beach, you are walking on the smelly road I would not stay in the hotel again in the room there […] were some strange smells we could not get rid of :( But if we forget about cleanliness, I liked room design and great romantic bath Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great resort, great neighbourhood."
Highly recommended, located in a great neighbourhood.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old and tired"
This place is old and tired, the bed was insanely uncomfortable, so much so I flew back to Sydney with a seriously sore neck. The towels were barely bigger than hand towels (and we had to call everyday to be sent more than 2), air-conditioning was either non-existent or unbearably cold. We were situated in a room near the main pool and could hear horrendously […] bad cover songs on repeat all day. The buffet breakfast was average at best. The two pluses were the nice bathroom and is the staff were very sweet. For the price of almost $300 a night we were expecting much much more! I know this sounds harsh, but I really wish a few more honest appraisals of this hotel were written as I would've chosen elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place for a short break"
We were upgraded to pool villa on arrival, possibly because it was very quiet; not many guests. The room/villa was great even though it had seen some traffic. The staff were very good and friendly, always helpful with a ready smile. It was situated just perfectly for us; a short 3 minute walk into downtown Karon (if you find the short cut!!), and 2 […] minutes from the beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beach nearby. Pool immediately infront of the room"
Excellent hotel, as advertised. Well kept, with very polite staff. Seem to be only couples staying there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great room, great staff"
The room was great The staff was very nice and kindGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Set back from the road, this is a quiet and peaceful retreat with outstanding, attentive staff, beautiful grounds and a relaxing overall feel. Only 5 mins across the road from the beach and a short stroll to Karon central, this hotel is just perfect. The villas are immaculate and maintained that way, the pool is clean and inviting. Breakfast each day […] was a nice selection of continental and cooked buffet to appeal to all nationalities. The satff is friendly, accommodating and helpful. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet, adult friendly place to relax after busy days out and trips to Patong! Just outstanding! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyed our stay there except there is constant water flow sound right beside the Villa (the last corner villa).Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel with friendly staff"
We had a great stay and will be coming back next year.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable hotel, big room & nice pool"
Value for money, with comfortable, clean & big room. Air-con super cold. Water pressure good also. With nice bathtub & separate rain shower. Nice relaxing pool, which opens from 9am - 9pm. Greenery around the resort. Breakfast not too bad, but not awesome though, within acceptable level. Only drawback is no free WIFI. Need to pay additional for wifi […] access.

"nice quite hotel."
had a very pleasant stay and staff were always friendly and helpfull.Genuine Expedia guest review
Found everything fabulous, rooms, service and staff were very friendly and helpful in everyway. Unfortunately we broke a glass in the bathroom and we're asked to pay 50 baht for the glass which we thought was very petty, the member of the staff who had to ask us for it was obviously embarrassed, apart from that it was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Unique with pool to your front door,"
3 staff members made our stay fantastic - Henry - Bum ( prounced Boom ) and Thon - were awesome . This was perfect for us put I would imagine some europeans with high expections would grizzle though. Construction of the hotel next door is not an issue as per some other reviews - they don't start until 8am and the noise minimal - you should be out of […] bed and enjoying paradise by then anyway - 2 extra hot dishes on the breakfast buffet would have made all the difference the breakfast was still in keeping with the size of hotel and offered 2x hot thai options and 2 hot european options with your normal eggs deal and normal fruit/bread options - if in doubt take the plunge and stay - scooters a must at 1050 baht a week from Tods scooter hire on the little street from the Centra hotel ( this elderly couple are really honest and speak good english with good quality scooters - we did 800km in 10 days running around Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect place for couple"
We stayed in their garden villa for 4days3nights on May31-Jun3. The staff especially the receptionists were very nice and polite. Villa we stayed in was clean. We enjoyed the pool. Breakfast is average. They served mainly fried rice, bacon, sausage, ham, noodles, cereals, breads and fruits. Nothing exciting about it. We ordered local thai food for lunch […] at their cafe and we loved it. We will definitely recommend this place to our friends. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value for money"
We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the bungalow and the resort overall considering the price we paid. Great pool bar area and great location tooGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very pleasant and very good value"
This is not a super up-market resort, but The Village is a genuinely nice place and at the rates we were paying very good value for money. (It is perhaps a bit cheaper than normal at the moment due to the construction work next door?). In fact, we paid a bit extra for a poolside villa, which was worth it and the upgrade was itself at a reduced rate. […] (On the topic of construction, it is true that it is happening, but we did not find it particularly intrusive and it did not start until 8 am anyway. The grounds are otherwise set well back from the road and are quiet.) The grounds are pretty much like the website photos and have a nice winding pool that wends through. The accommodation is in spacious and well designed detached bungalows that sort of seemed Balinese. The beds were futon style - low and a little hard-ish (but we like them that way). They have been given a mock aged appearance but have all modern amenities. There is a nice pool bar and the happy hour cocktails at that bar are a highlight. Staff were all nice. The only downsides : 1. the wifi keeps on disconnecting and you have to resign in frequently. 2. there is a short-ish walk to Karon beach and shops. 3. The name "spa" is currently not justified as it was closed ... Even the jacuzzi stops at 5 pm. But those are all relatively minor gripes. This is a nice place and is recommended.

"Great Hotel - Great experience"
Very close to the beach and town of Karon. Very comfortable and the staff catered to our every need. Excellent rooms and very well kept grounds. Pleasantly surprised!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay!"
My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for a week and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff was the friendliest, the hotel and rooms were clean and the price was great. Short walk to the beach and the hotel pool was fantastic if you don't want to go to the beach, plus happy hour at the pool bar from 4-6. There is construction on a new hotel next door, […] but the noise never bothered us. Construction ended and started at a reasonable time not to disrupt sleep. We would definitely stay here again.

"Excellent hotel!! 1st class"
The hotel is exceptional! From the first moment we checked in, till the moment we left, we were treated great. The facilities are fantastic, the villa is fantastic and the location is great. Highly recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent peaceful retreat"
We had just returned from 12 nights, had an amazing time. A quiet secluded resort away from the hustle of karon, beach and town are a 5-8 min walk away, plenty of resturants nearby. No children allowed. Beautiful spacious clean villas, excellent pool and lovely gardens. Good food and friendly staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a great time at the resort. Its very clean and the staff was outstanding. Yes there is construction next door but it looks like it will end soon and it wont hurt the appeal of the resort. The breakfast was okay but after 4 days it gets old, but any breakfast would. We highly recommend this resort and would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We loved it so much we came back"
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Phuket. It is close to the beach, restaurants and markets in Karon. Once you step inside the resort you are able to escape and relax. We were lucky enough to be upgraded both times to a Poolside Villa. I would highly recommend one of these rooms. Being able to sit on your front verandah […] relaxing by your pool and swimming was a highlight for us. The sitting room with the sun bed was amazing, and the rooms were big and comfortable. The breakfast was different each day and provided plenty of variety. The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. On the day we checked out we were able to keep our luggage with reception and have full use of resort facilities for the day. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach"
My experiences are the follows: You have to pay for the internet connection , You have to pay if you need a copy of your passport which is needed for rental cars for example The breakfast is not so good for europeans but its OK anywayGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel itself is in a nice spot, about 10 minutes easy walk to the beach. Rooms are very nicely designed, if a bit spartan, and the bathrooms are excellent. The breakfast is very basic, and nothing on offer was particularly appetising, although they will cook omlettes on request. Lunch menu / dinner menu is well priced, and good quality The one […] overriding issue at the moment however (December 2013) is the huge amount of construction work that is being carried out next door. The noise is constant, all day, 7 days a week. I had to move room as my first room was litterally 2 metres from the building next door that is being demolished. They are using jack hammers to take the building down, which looks like it will take months to complete. The noise at breakfast / by the pool / in the bedrooms is overbearing, and ruins the whole experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"5 min to the best spot on Karon beach"
Nice villas in a nice surrounding. Very helpful staff, unfortunately there are some building construction next to the hotel which could be a problem if you are planning to relax by the pool. The best spot on Karon beach for swimming and with less crowd is just 5 min walking in front of the hotel. Careful when crossing the main road because it is right […] in a curve !

"Your personal piece of paradise"
If you are seeking a boutique, secluded resort with minimal guests this is the place. Set in lush tropical gardens and beautiful pool, this is ideal for couples of all ages free of young children. The individual villas (some 32 of) are spacious and luxurious set amongst the gardens or alternatively on poolside. We preferred the gardens away from the […] pool which gave more privacy and quiet. Staff are very friendly and accommodating and there is always ample room for dining and poolside drinks and lazing. Breakfast buffet is fine and enough choice. Meals are available for most of the time and generally are fine although sometimes inconsistent in standard depending on chefs. It does pay to eat outside the resort because of the many options available elsewhere. It is a great place to relax and be pampered, not for big groups but brilliant for couples.

We stayed seven days! Beautiful peaceful resort with tropical gardens and tradition Thai villas.The staff were all very friendly,happy & helpful! They were more than accommodating when asked for a change of villa so we could enjoy the garden from our room. Only one complaint, the bathrooms from each villa share a common wall, so there is alot of noise […] transference if you have loud neighbours. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would highly recommend "The Village" to everyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Untapped jewel in Phuket!"
Location was great! Short walking distance to Karon beach area with some great food and night life, cross the road to the beach if you dont want to laze around in the clean and well maintained pool/jacuzzi! Ten minute (THB300/400 hotel booking) Tuk-Tuk/Taxi to Patong beach area (Jungceylon shopping centre), the main part of Phuket. Tours readily organisable […] and chargeable to the room. Internet is not included but very cheap at THB200/day. Staff are friendly and always willing to help. Only criticism is the pillows are uncomfortable and the food in the restaurant is average. Regardless, 5/5 rating this place made our first time trip to Phuket amazing! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were very excited to stay here but unfortunately the hotel really didn't meet our expectations. We even tried to change hotels and flights. We stayed in early October 2013 Positives: - Helpful staff - Dinner was nice Negatives: - Bed was not comfortable, pretty much a mattress on the floor - when the room was cleaned, it didnt feel like a good […] job was done - breakfast is very bad (sorry), especially since I am a vegetarian - being set outdoors has its advantages but since it rained 5 out of the 7 days we were there, you would get wet walking to breakfast and even to the lobby - shower door was broken so floor would get all wet, plus a leak in the roof in the bathroom - no gym It was tough getting through this week of our stay and to be honest we were glad to leave.

"mini break at the Village Resort and Spa"
A very warm welcome greeted us on our arrival and the friendliness and commitment to making our stay as enjoyable as possible continued throughout our 8 days. The check-in was efficient and friendly - the garden villa was spacious, clean, with two good air conditioning systems, one in livimg area and the other in the bedroom. The grounds are beautiful […] and well maintained; the pool also is immaculate - it's not a huge expanse of water but well designed with an elevated jacuzzi area and the pool side villas with their own dipping pool separated from the main swim area. With 34 villas it has a boutique feel with the staff their greatest asset Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice resort closed to the facilities"
Location of resort is excellent and the staff was co-operative as well.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to beach and shops"
Duty free alcohol in room went missing. Wine prices in restaurant deceptively marked so that 1000 baht difference not noticed in low lighting, reported to management who did nothing. Happy hour drinks watered downGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed at the resort for nine nights and it was absolutely fantastic. It was really beautiful. The staff were amazing from the reception staff to the restaurant staff to the cleaning staff. The grounds are lush and very well maintained, the pool is gorgeous and clean and the villas spacious, very comfortable and tastefully decorated. It was low season […] when we were there so there were not many people around and we almost felt like we had the place to ourselves. The walk to the main shopping strip and beach at Karon is about a 5 to 10 minute walk away which is great because it's not right in the middle of the hustle and bustle and when you are at the resort you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere and you can rest and relax. This resort suits couples best, its not a place for young kids. We would highly recommend this place to stay and would definitely stay there again if we ever go back to Phuket.

"Large room but slightly run-down"
Nice hotel and very big rooms, but the food wasn't great. The breakfast especially was sub standard.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We loved it at The Village so much we extended our stay. The villas were very roomy with comfortable beds and large bathrooms. Breakfast was always good and you could get the chef to cook your eggs how you liked or make an omelette if you wanted. Very quite location and only a short walk to the main street with a good selection of restaurants and bars. […] The staff were great and super friendly. The only negative was that wifi was not included and you could only connect one device at a time. A small drawback for what is an outstanding resort. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"An oasis of calm near Karon, not far from Patong"
I never bother reviewing hotels, but this one is worth a specific recommendation. A really well placed hotel within easy walking distance of Karon restaurants and night life. There are two parts to the hotel, a 'usual' family hotel, with an adults-only collection of bungalows opposite. We stayed in a bungalow - not a child in sight! Genuine Thai style […] bungalows in beautifully landscaped gardens. We had a bedroom (futon style, not really our choice), a dressing room, bathroom and lounge. The staff couldn't do enough for their guests, this is a hotel I really would go back to and look forward to enjoying again. Peaceful, calm, relaxing, ambient. Totally recommended. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The Place was great, love the bungalow theme. I didn't want to get out of the awesome tub. The room was huge and pleasant to stay in. I really enjoyed the stay, we also like the fact that it wasn't where the crowds were. Granted I am in a foreign country it was difficult to communicate but with a little persistence we made it work.Genuine Expedia guest review
