    Average hotel with great staff

    We booked this Hotel near the beach. On the website it appeared to be well maintained and and a nice pool area. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast wasnt bad. The bed was uncomfortable, old matress, and there is no elevator to the upper floors. The hotel is just run down. The pool needs maintenance as there are tiles coming loose. The service at the hotel is great, it's just older hotel and needs some remodel work. It rained for most of my stay, had there been sunny weather it would be easy to overlook the deficiencies of the hotel because the Beautiful Karon beach is next door.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Nice place, nice location, breakfast is good. Bike rental, shops, restaraunt and down the street. 1 minute walk to beach. Away from the party and business For relaxation but just a quick 5-10 minute ride away if you choose to get crazy one night. Workers are nice, they know English for the most part, just need to speak slowly and clearly to them. 800-1000 Thai baht from airport. 1200 Thai baht if you book from resort to airport 5am. Definitely would stay again.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Good location for the beach and the town. The hotel itself was a bit dated and smelt a bit musty (especially the spa - although my husband said his massage was excellent). We didn't really use the restaurant or bars - the pool bar closed early evening and the restaurant had no atmosphere whatsoever. Breakfast was ok. Next time I will pay the extra for a resort which has more facilities and a beach view from the pool.

    Lovely location with 2 local supermarkets and multiple restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Just 2 minutes from stunning white sandy beach.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Horrible manager. He did not refund when we did not stay at the property at all. He overselled shabby looking hotel by falsely putting photos on My mother who is 65 year old was put in a shabby room at 4AM in the morning. When we paid for Deluxe room they put us in a shabby dark room and DID NOT REFUND my money. Only for money making business with no hospitality towards customers.

    I think the staff are excellent and the amenities are up to standard I do however think charging over Au$55 to hire the key to a safety deposit box in your room is a bit cheeky given every other resort I've ever stayed in includes that amenity without extra cost

    You can’t really moan a ‘bout Karona!

    We enjoyed our stay in this tired, three star hotel with a beach view. The beach was unswimmable because of rips and no lifeguards because it was low season. The hotel has seen better days but most things worked with the exception of wifi and hot water which took an eternity to come through. I only had cold showers as I couldn’t be bothered to wait for hot water. Wi fi was woeful. I had to sit on the balcony to get a weak signal and frequent drop outs. However, the place was clean and there is plenty of cheap eating nearby and staff are kind and nice but have limited language skills. Breakfast is a standard hotel buffet with cereal, fruit, bread and pastries and eggs done as you want was a great place to use as a base and cheap so you get what you pay for.
