The hotel is very good. Some slopes have to walk carefully. Bathroom have to fix some items.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, but near the road"
Nice hotel, but because of the road, it was very dusty and loud. Also you should cross the road if you want to go to the beach or somewhere else and trafic is dangerous. Tours and taxy are very expensive in hotel. (In two-three times then outside) And we booked a room with one big bed, but they gave us a room with two separate beds. They gave us an […] option to move to the another hotel with one big bed in the room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Gopod value, excellent service"
Although some of the facilities could do with maintenance, the Front village is good value for the price. The rooms are large and comfortable. All the staff were friendly and polite. The pool is a good size and nice to relax in after the beach or escaping from the heat. The room aircon is good but a little noisy.They would have got a lot more money […] from me if the they matched the prices for food and tours that you can get downtown. But because it isn't in the middle of Karon beach, you escape all the noise and hustle. The individually cooked omelette as part of the breakfast buffet was a nice touch, but can you please ask the chefs to cover over the egg mix so the birds don't stick their beaks in it? However I stayed for a few days and enjoyed it so much that I went back for a longer stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Good location. Nice hotel. Nice room. Breakfast fine for cost. Staff great. Internet not free.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wouldn't spend more than a night in Phuket"
The hotel itself is pretty. The rooms were nice, and big. The pool is pretty and lush looking- very clean. The bathrooms have the plumbing issue that it seems most hotels do in Thailand- it kind of stinks and smells like it's about to back up at any second- plus every shower left tons of water leaking all over he floor. I'll just say this bc I wish […] someone had told me. No need to stay in Phuket more than a night unless you re taking daily excursions to other islands. Even still , you'd be better off just staying on other islands. And if you are single girls- avoid Bangladesh street like the plague. To get to the beach, you have to cross the street and go to public beach, and you have to walk around what looks to be a sewer retention pond. Kind of nasty. The hotel and staff were absolutely acceptable- just did not like Phuket very much compared to the rest of the trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Pool but Rooms need Updating"
Pros... wonderful pool with swim up bar. Not to scare anyone, if if another tsunami hits Phuket, this is a "safe" place to be. It is uphill from the beach, and there is a huge empty lagoon between the beach and the hotel. Cons...needs room updating, staff not helpful or too friendly, bathroom stunk like a sewer, Karon Beach is polluted like most of […] Phuket with trash all over the beach. Quieter and less crowded than Patong though. Pay the extra money and stay on a small island outside of Phuket Island. 2 Touristy! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and cozy atmosphere"
The hotel is at a strategic location, and very nearby the beautiful beach. Walking distance from nearby eateries, spa and tour agencies. The room was good, with laid back woody beach theme and was a value for money.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic, reasonably priced hotel"
The hotel was fantastic. I was a little put off, while being escorted to my room, by the funky-looking pond on the other side. But my room! It was simply wonderful accommodation, lovely attentive staff, balconies facing the beach, meandering pool with a bar, great breakfast every morning, plus a great spa with on-site massages! I'll definitely stay […] here again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Absolutely fantastic - made better by the attitude and friendliness of the staff - ALL staff. Would recommend this hotel to anybody.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to beach & town but noisy."
This was our second stay at the Front Village after a break of 4 years. We stayed for 15 nights. The whole of Karon including the Front Village is noisier than we remember but part of this perception may be because we are 4 years older (late 60's). We were a bit spoilt because our previous hotel (Khoa Lak) was superb but the rooms are a good size as […] is the bathroom & everything worked ---- could have done with more drawer space. The balcony was good & overlooked the pool but was spoilt by them playing over loud music at the pool bar, especially during happy hour. They charged a ridiculous price for the hotel WiFi so we just used our iPad in the beach cafes. The pool was good & we could always get sunbeds. The breakfast was of the buffet type with an egg station & run to a higher standard than normal --- nothing ever seemed to run out. In fact the staff throughout were very helpful & attentive.

"Clean and comfortable"
We stayed for 3 nights in October. The room was lovely, the staff were helpful. There was a large variety at breakfast with an egg station. The restaurant was considerably more expensive than the surrounding eateries so we only had the buffet breakfast. The hotel is only a 5 minute walk from the beginning of the shops in Karon. Although close to a lot […] of the action the hotel is situated on a busy road. We couldn't hear traffic in our room but the traffic noise did not make sitting by the pool so relaxing.

"Staff could not have been more helpful"
On arrival (even though 3days late arriving at midnight) staff were helpful and welcoming, ensuring that I had everything I needed before leaving me to get settled. The hotel layout is good, enough privacy without feeling cut off. Everything was clean and accessible. Separate towels provided for the pool, which has a friendly atmosphere. Location was […] fantastic. After spending a week in Phuket amongst hustle and bustle, Karon was a pleasant retreat with the usual bars, shops and restaurants only a few minutes walk. Taxis and tuk tucks across the road should you wish to venture further. The beach at Karon is nicely developed with only a single row of sun loungers and just a minimum amount of huts for drinks etc. pleasantly unspoilt with just what you need. None of the usual lookie, lookie people that you get at the busier beaches. Fantastic stay for me. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Hotel near the Beach"
I and my girlfriend where staying 3 nights at The Front Village and we thought the Hotel was nice. Nothing too fancy but above avarage in terms of hotel facilities (so 3-4 out of 5) . The Staff was very helpful and forthcoming with any question we had - so a big plus on that. I think this hotel is a great choice if you want to spend couple of days exploring […] Phuket whilest not paying too much for the accomodation. The room was clean and tidy. As many others said the matrasses are quite hard, but apparently all hotels are the same there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The Front Village Hotel"
The Hotel front-line staff (ladies at the reception) were friendly, helpful and had an amazing memory for rooms numbers and names. The ladies where great at helping to book tours. The restaruant staff (breakfast) were bright and breezy for first thing in the morning. They were fast and continuous with the coffee and tea. The back-line staff were friendly […] and almost invisable. Upon checking out (Night Porter and a Male duty manager)- I was charged for mini-bar items that I didn't comsume (being water, and the fact that I was given two bottle of water each day, so had no need to use the water from the bar - amused me in that they couldn't see why I was resistant to accept the charges.) I was also going to be charged for missing "lolly bags".......mmmmm... not lollies in the mini bar that I could remember - but apparently not there anymore...... (turns out that "lolly bags" is actually "laundry bags" - a strange thing for a person to take??) All of this left a bad taste upon leaving the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
A fab hotel in a good resort with an excellent beach. Hotel far enough away from the noise of the centre but only a 10 minute stroll. Only downside for us was the weather 5 days of rain which I'm sure if the hotel could have changed they would have A very enjoyable stay definitely recommendGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best hotel in karon!"
Travelled as a couple and we were more than happy! We were greeted with a gracious welcome of friendly happy staff and a glass of fruit punch. The bell boy had taken our luggage to our room while we were given a tour of the grounds. The room was bright, spacious and very clean! The ensuite was immaculate and the room had a well stocked mini bar. The […] breakfast is beautiful and also is restaurant at night. The pool and swim up bar is great. The staff are more than happy to assist and always have a friendly hello at any time of the day. It's also a short walk to karon beach and town. I would certainly stay here again.

A truly wonderful hotel. The staff were all so friendly and nice our room was cleaned once daily some times twice.

"Good staff and hotel but beware of extra charges"
The hotel is nice but a little old fashioned, the staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms and breakfast are good. The problems i had were the extra charges, the daily charge for the poor internet which needed to be re logged in very often, substantial extra charges for an extra guest or friend, and then the minibar scenario. In total i paid the […] equivalent of 3-4 extra nights in charges. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel, the staff were always happy to help you should you need anything...

"Better than expected"
The Front Village was a pleasant surprise; it is a clean, well-maintained hotel, with a nice clean pool and friendly staff. We quite enjoyed having a ground-level room in front of the pool, and the food was always good. We also enjoyed the daily morning breakfast, particularly the chief omelette maker! The shower (over the bath) leaked onto the floor […] during every shower (even with a shower curtain trying to contain the water). The walk into Karon (approx 10-15mins) followed a reasonably well-lit path with open sewers which were not pleasant smelling. If we were to return, we would stay in Kata, a bit further south; the place just seemed a bit more cleaner and polished. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Phuket holiday - The Front Village"
The hotel stay was great. Located a short distance from the beach about a 5min walk. Staff were very helpful and service was always good. Room was clean and daily made with flowers on the bed. Nice touch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value for money."
The staff are lovely and really helpful though a few had difficulty understanding English. They tried though as best they could. It's not expensive and good value. However, there was music constantly being played around the pool which was disco type and the constant boom boom of the "big bass drum" wasn't conducive to peace and tranquility. We did have […] a word with management about it and it did stop. It went on whether there were people in the pool or around it, or not, and from the bedroom it was still loud. We were there for our first wedding aniversary and the maid made a beautiful arrangement of towels and flowers on our bed the second night. Petals were arranged in a heart shape and "Happy anniversary" spelt out in leaves. Really beautiful and a shame to move it to get into bed! One evening we discovered the restaurant around the bungalow end of the hotel complex, and had a very nice meal there. Don't know how these bungalows compare price-wise with basic rooms, but they looked nice and the whole area where they were was obviously more upmarket. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The Front Village - a good choice"
This is a good hotel. We were a little nervous as it was a lot cheaper than other hotels but we needn't have worried. The location is handy for the beach and far enough from the maddening crowds where the bars are located. Hiring a scooter is useful as you can easy zip up to Kata and other beaches.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quality hotel outside bustle of centre"
If you haven't been, Karon is like the Scandinavian equivalent of the costa del sol, complete with lobster coloured tourists gobbling up the knock off wares and sipping overpriced Chang beer. That being said, this hotel was very nice, and Karon does have a lovely beach and access to numerous excursions to the excellent surrounding islands. Our room […] was well furnished with the largest bed I have ever slept on and a balcony with views of the sea. The breakfast was excellent. The pool had a swim through bar and daily happy hour and the poolside had plenty of shade for when you need to hide from the intense sun. The staff were friendly and if you found the right one (some had poorer English), very helpful. Hotel is 5 min walk to the quieter end of the beach and 10 to the center of Karon, meaning it feels much more relaxed and quieter than some of hotels right in the thick of things. It does mean you need to walk further for your evening beer though. Personally I wouldn't go back to Phuket again (it is less authentic and more expensive than other areas of Thailand) and if i did I would go to Kata. However if I had to go back to Karon, I would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fuktigt. Ofräsch pool."
Fuktigt. Ligger precis vid bilväg. Poolen rengörs inte dagligen. När vi skulle bada i poolen första dagen fanns det döda larver i poolens botten.
