"Nice suite in Phunawa"
This hotel complex is about a 10 min. Walk to the beach. It is a lovely set-up with the units all having balconies that face the pool. Having the kitchenette was great for having simple breakfasts. The decor in the suite is pleasing although the sofa and beds were quite hard. The cleanliness was adequate (not to western standards but typical for Asia I expect) and linens and towels were changed daily. Really the only thing that was problematic was the number of flies around, especially the pool area which made it hard to relax there, and the pool was always a bit murky. There is a small convenience store five minutes down the hill as well as many good restaurants within walking distance. We really enjoyed our stay at Phunawa and would return if ever back to Karon Beach.

"Nice Family Resort"
Our overall rating of this hotel is very good. The Hotel personnel is always friendly and willing to help, from the people at the Reception to the Cleaning staff. We arrive quite late and the driver was waiting for us at the airport. The receptionist was expecting us and was very friendly. Every time we would ask for something they would help us out so do not hesitate to talk to the Reception if you feel like something is missing or you need some extras. Thai people are in general very friendly and the hotel staff really did their best to provide us a nice stay during our 18 days vacation

"Phunawa Review"
The hotel is a 15 minute walk to the beach and 30 minute walk to karon market. They do have shuttle service to the beach that runs at 10 am, 11am, and 12pm and only 3pm as a pick up time to get back to the hotel. They are doing renovations so it can be noisy during the day. The room is nice and has a kitchen where you can cook to save some money. However, the room electricity keeps turning off during the night. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Every tuesday there is a night market at the temple ground where you can buy souvenirs at a much cheaper price compared to the souvenir stores that you will see. There's also a beach night market every night where you can eat some good food.

"Great for groups of travelling friends"
Finding a place for three guest was a nightmare, everyone wanted to charge an outrageous "extra person fee" even for rooms with two beds (1 couple and a friend). But this place was found and all was great, two bedrooms each with its own air con controls...fantastic! Stayed 3 nights. Staff highly attentive. The only real con is the fact that the area reeks of sewerage (the street is lined with covered sewer holes) so walking from and to the hotel is an experience for the nostrils.

"Nice place; very nice people."
We were delighted with our first room, and were just settling in when I noticed that the door did not latch (the lock was broken). I pointed this out to the front desk, and the guy who came to look at the lock immediately moved us to another--even nicer--room and apologized profusely. The air conditioner in one of the bedrooms didn't seem to be working quite right, but I was reluctant to complain again, so we happily settled in to our new room and went out to explore. Upon returning, we found an enormous pool of water all over the (tiled) floor of the bedroom and a steady rain dripping from the suspect air conditioner (on the ceiling). I reported this to the front office immediately, and it took a few attempts to make them understand that it was not just a little drip and someone needed to come right away. When they did finally come take a look, they immediately offered to move us again, but this time the rooms they proposed putting is in seemed like downgrades from the original and I got rather frustrated: I never want to be the difficult, demanding customer, but it had taken them over an hour to respond at all to the problem and all my daughters clothes were soaking wet (her suitcase had been on the floor in the flooded room) and it seemed to me that they might be more accommodating. Eventually they offered a really large room that they clearly considered a huge upgrade, although it had less bed space and lacked some furniture. The rest of our stay was lovely.

"Tucked away in a quiet place."
Overall, pretty much satisfied. This is truly a getaway location for families with children. Some construction noise, but not too inconvenient. Water and power interruptions are the norm when additional work to add facilities to the location are in progress. Parking is a bit of a concern if rental cars are utilized by guests as there is a limited number of parking spaces as a ratio to the number of guest rooms. As far as dining on the premises: I would strongly suggest that current management seriously consider eliminating the mandatory 10% service fee, and the 7% tax as the prices are a bit more than local peer group amounts. The service tends to be lacking when in Thailand but the smallness of the place seems to balance it off as a trade. When you add the 17% on top of the prices, especially the alcohol beverages, the prices are too high. This information was shared to me by a departing couple from Adelaide. But, I decided to see for myself and I have to agree with their comments. Other than that be clear about any credit card deposits and requesting a copy of your card voucher on check out so as not to incur any "hidden" surprises later as they did not provide a "zero balance" portfolio on the check out after we were there for six days.

A really good hotel for the price. It's nestled at the foot of the mountain a little bit back from the beach and has beautiful views of the pristine mountains and the sea. The breakfast is average, and the pool is attractive but not really practical to swim in. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating and the rooms were exceptionally large and beautiful. We loved the place and would return again.

We stayed in 2 bedroom grand suit & it was absolutely fantastic. Beautiful room, so big & clean. It had everything we needed for our stay with 2 small children. Direct pool access & it was a great pool & layout. The restaurant is surrounded by the pool & the breakfast was great. The staff were so helpful & the free shuttle to & from the beach was good because it's a bit of a walk with kids. All up it was a wonderful experience & I would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is in a quiet area of Karon surrounded by other hotels, approx. 1 km from main road. Easy to get around, need to barter with drivers as it varied for trips. Breakfast was included and great choices. We stayed in room 1212, a junior suite of 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms which was on the ground floor a few steps from the pool and restaurant which was a fantastic spot. Overall our stay was enjoyable and would recommend this hotel to anyone considering staying there.

"Disappointing"
This was our first holiday in 3 years. We run our own businesses so it is hard to get away. We had a 10 day holiday of which 2.5 days were travelling and we organised around the Easter long weekend to reduce time away from work... We booked for 5ppl but there were only beds for 4, we were not advised of extra charge for extra bed until I asked on the 2nd day, there was only a 3 seater couch for 5 ppl, there was plenty of space but no dining table/chairs, no shelves for suitcases, only 4 small drawers for clothes, 4 broken hooks, 2 small towel rails and no space for cosmetic/toiletry bags, staff not very friendly or attentive, food at breakfast buffet not covered from flies. Shame really, could be such a nice place to stay if they put a bit more effort into their hospitality.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment at the Phunawa Resort for 5 days with our kids. All staff were friendly and efficient, girls in the restaurant don't speak English very well. Apartment was very comfortable, modern and clean. Our aircon was playing up, reception sent a guy out straight away. The food is reasonably priced and tasty, with an extensive selection (for kids as well). All in all had a nice relaxing stay, great value for money.

"Nice quiet hotel; walking distance from the beach."
The hotel is well located away from the direct traffice. Walking to the beach and main shopping area is easy down hill 10 - 15 min walk. Up hill in the heat may not be easy for those with young kids etc. A taxi back to the hotel is always easy to come by. Pool was great to have as well. Different in shape but enjoyable for a quick dip to refresh.

"If you are not much exploring, it's ok..."
The hotel is a bit far away, for relaxing within the hotel, it's ok, but if you want to explore other location, you need to spend more on taxi - that's the only inconvenience. It really depends on what you look for in your holiday. There was one remark on our 3rd night around 3am, the air-con was dripping water and cause the whole bed/mattress wet, we informed housekeeping the next morning to fix it.

"Very enjoyable stay in Phunawa resort"
We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The 2 bedroom apartment was very spacious and clean. The kitchen is a kitchenette, no washing machine. I really liked the apartment with its terrace and sun loungers. The pool was lovely, the massage was good and only 510 thai baht for 1 hour aroma massage in a peaceful salon rather than 400 baht in a noisy, backstreet salon. The staff were very helpful. It costs 200 baht in a taxi to the beach, but u can walk in less than 10 mins and it costs 350 baht to Patong.

"Nice hotel quite a walk from the beach"
We arrived at the hotel exhausted after dragging our luggage from the main road. Please make sure that you get dropped off at the hotel itself if you take the van from the airport. It is a steep walk especially with a suitcase. The staff were very understanding and showed us to our room. It was very stuffy and we had to open the doors for a while. The rooms were big, one ensuite with a king size bed and another bathroom. The shower was huge and the bath was just as nice. It was well-equipped and we got an iron and ironing board for the duration of our stay. Breakfast was nice and the staff were always smiling and friendly. The pool is huge! The only drawback was the distance from the town centre and the beach. Otherwise it is a very nice hotel. There is a tuk tuk to the beach but as others pointed out the times are not that convenient. We also found taxi prices to be a lot more expensive than Bangkok and Chiang Mai. It cost 400bht to Patong irrespective of the number of people, so if you're planning to go there often, you might consider finding a hotel in Patong itself. Also, there was a nice restaurant across from the beach - Golden sands inn restaurant. Everywhere else was very westernised or adapted to Russian tastes.

"A Gem of a Property"
We could not resist this hotel because it was listed as 60% off 2 rooms left. As usual, we booked two nights and then decided that we loved the hotel and the community. We eventually spent five great days there. This resort is about a 10 min. walk, but this was not a concern. The large two bedroom suite had marble floors and a wrap around deck. The condition of the property is pristine, the restaurant has a great menu and very affordable prices.

"Good compact resort but spoilt by bad odour"
Good compact resort but spoilt by bad odour from recycling / effluent treatment plant behind the resort. All suites resort suitable for families with children. The 2 bedroom units are spacious with kitchen and a living room. Breakfast is the usual and the swimming pool is good to look at but not too wide. The pricing offers great value for money if you're willing to ignore the bad smell that comes from the recycling / effluent treatment plant behind the resort. The smell is detectable in the outdoor areas and not inside the air conditioned rooms. The bad smell is stronger at times when the plant is operational (occurs multiple times during the day) and in the rooms at the back of the resort. The staff clearly understand the issue and were good enough to relocate us to a bigger and a better located room near the pool. If you're planning to spend all day at the beach and use the rooms for sleeping in air-conditioning, then the resort offers great value for families. If you're planning to laze around the resort pool or your own balcony, the smell might bother you a bit.

"Good for relaxing"
The hotel have great facilities like the various swimming pool. Hotel breakfast is also very good with a large variety of food to choose from(western and Thai food available too)However the hotel can improved by having bigger tables for families to sit together or allow tables to be joined together as during my experience there, my family of 5 and many other hotel guests would have to eat separately using two tables. Staff is also very friendly and if you're one who like to send postcard, you can just give your postcard with stamp(stamps can be brought at local convenience stores) to the staff and they would help you send it. Hotel is generally good for family bonding and relaxation, however I would not recommend it to people who would like to visit the beach most of the time. Though the resort provide free taxi service to the beach-Karon beach, trip to kata beach and the return trip to the resort must be taken of yourself if you do not wish to return on the certain time slotting. The cost of tuk-tuk can also be rather costly with a start of 200 batt

Cons: About 10-15mins walk to nearest restaurants, bar and beach (not good if you have young kids) cause of this you have to spend quite a lot on transportation. Even though they provide free shuttle to beach but not so regular. Pool bar happy hour too short (only 2 hours).

Pool is great, food was good, location is good close enough to walk to beach yet far away enough from the hustle of Karon that you feel safe and secluded. Will stay in a roof top spa suite next time. I walked down to and along the beach each morning and back for a swim in the pool in time for the buffet breakfast. Only thing missing was a gym of some sort. Beds were a bit hard for me but I'm sure others will like them. We will return..

Really enjoyed our few days at Phunawa Resort. It was not high season so the resort was not crowded -was very peaceful and relaxing. Staff were excellent-friendly and helpful and the family suite we had was large and clean, with kitchen facilities. The whole place was quite picturesque as the restaurant and rooftop bar was in the middle, surrounded by the pool and spa and the suites were around the pool. There was also a massage centre on the premises which provided fantastic massage services, manicures, braiding etc. It was a short walk away from Karon Beach but there was also a transfer there each day if you did not want to walk. A short walk away was the local markets with plenty of restaurants, shops, tailors etc from which to choose. Taxis readily available at the resort for longer trips.All in all, a great resort!
