Well, the location of this hotel is good, that why we choose it. But condition of the hotel especially the reception, the link to the room got to Improve a lot. Staff was not very inclined in English speaking. There is no shelter link from reception to our room. Telephone system is damn bad. Room condition is acceptable for the size. On our first nite, it was raining heavily, thunder and lightning cause the telephone system to be down. Our toilet bowl was choked, we can't communicate with the reception and I got to carry an umbrella, walk 5 mins to the reception and inform the staff. Haiz.. What a nite...maybe it is our luck, but should this be happening with a well established hotel?

Good location just few mewters from beach. Rooms are "normal" good sized Thai interior and combact thai style. Nothing suprising, but thta is not what we were looking for. Air conditioning was good and worked well. Pool area was nice, but water cleaniness was far out good. Maybe because too much tourists from country that do not give advice to wash before swimmingpool. Breakfast was good and tasty. Personnel have "A" for smile and serve.

We stayed 8 nights during the monsoon season. The hotel is located across the street from the beach. Watch out for dangerous rip currents. While we were there a group of tourists were rescued but sadly one of them drowned. Walk on the beach and save swimming for the lovely hotel pool. The staff was very nice and helpful in the Sunset Restaurant. Nice balcony with slice of ocean view. The bed was very hard. We placed the comforter under the bottom sheet to soften the bed a little. The plumbing made loud knocking noises night and day. Mafia controlled transportation in front of the hotel. Other taxi drivers wouldn't pick up or drop off in fear of being beaten by the mafia. The mafia charged extremely high fixed rates. We caught the open bus that travels between Old Town Puket and Karon Beach. Easy access to laundry, mini mart and restaurants.

The off season rate is very reasonable, thus remembering it is a 3 star hotel, across from the beach our stay was good. Staff where nice and helpful. It is a bit older hotel, down side is no internet in the rooms and a charge for it in the lobby. The TV is old, but did have English channels. Breakfast was included and was quite acceptable. Rooms where clean and made up promptly each day. It is quiet, no loud bars pounding out music which was good. Several very nice restaurants nearby and taxis out front to go to Kata or Patong beaches and other areas.
"Nice hotell and good price"

"Enjoyable & Memorable"

We had booked a Junior Suite having full sea view. The room size (living as well as bedroom) was fantastic with two balconies over looking the sea. Toilet size was also good. Amenities were adequate but since they have made a kitchenette sort of space, they should also provide a hot plate so that something can be prepared for children. The decor was fine mostly with polished wood finish. However, linen quality was not up to the mark. Also wi-fi was not available during our stay, and, it was chargeable (quite exorbitant). For upgraded rooms they should make it free. Breakfast was adequate but there is scope to widen the choice a little bit. And, for guests checking in late say, after 11 pm, there will be no food available....so take your own stock of dry foods for the night. If you want to reach the sea beach from this hotel, just cross over the road.

We wanted to be near friends who were staying at The Old Phuket but were quoted exorbitant prices to stay there, so we walked down the road to Karon Princess and glad we did. For less than half the price we had large rooms, big balconies and closer to the beach than our friends. The rooms are clean and the only drawback was the shower stalls were a bit dated, but they did the job. The pools were nice and clean unfortunately the pool bar was closed when we visited. Not a bad place and will recommend this hotel.

Been over 7 years since me and my husband stayed there. But until today I can remember the way it was. It was a good spacious room, beautiful pool (longwards) and definately would stay again. Just pleasant staff, and it was my husbands birthday, they gave a complimentary cake (but big) and walked singing happy birthday to him while he was in the pool. They just made the atmosphere special. Obviously from reviews i have read, they may have changed the staff or some of them. But i have to comment as it until today makes me remember nice times. Location good too.

I have stayed at this hotel. I chose it for its location and price. Staff did not walk around and smile all the time, but still my experience is that they were very helpful and very friendly. And when I forgot my wallet in the reception they immediately phoned to my room and asked me to come and pick it up. Great! I noticed some people who did not behave well towards the staff, and I guess it is hard to smile and be polite to people who do not behave... In my opinion, it looks like some of the other tripadvisor reviewers are not very fair towards the hotel staff. I loved the Spa at this hotel. It is really worth a visit!

Wish we hadn.t booked this hotel. The reception staff were surly. The restaurant staff couldn't raise a smile. The breakfast was very average and the cups and saucers were stained or chipped. The room ( deluxe ) was a good size but the lighting was totally inadequate. Worst of all was the bathroom, the shower had paint peeling of it , the glass needed a good clean and there were areas of mould . The whole hotel looks sad and old , it needs an update and new staff.
