Novotel Phuket Karon Beach Resort and Spa, Karon
Compared to the other hotels we went on to stay, Novotel was amazing. There were enough food variations that we did not feel like we were eating the same thing every day. The pool was clean, the spa was exceptional and the staff was wonderful

Wonderful, family hotel
We found the Novotel on several top 10 lists for family resorts and it didn't disappoint. The resort was beautiful, perfectly located across the street from the beach (with a 24 hour crossing guard just for the hotel), and walking distance to Botha. playground and into Karon town. We rented a plunge pool suite which didn't disappoint. Even nicer were the little touches. Our son's bed was made with Hotel Transylvania sheets and pillows, as well as a Hotel Transylvania kids robe. Another night we were surprised with a mixed drinks setup fro the adults waiting when we returned from a day sightseeing. The pools were very nice. Our son LOVED the water slide in the kids pool and we could barely pry him away from the kids club (which gave us lots of free time to enjoy the adult pool and swim up bar). They had activities for the kids all throughout the day for kids from games to super heroes making appearances to play with the kids. The customer service was fantastic. A true culture of service. The food and drinks were good, but certainly more costly than in town of course. Our only recommendation for the hotel is to invest in more gym equipment. The gym is very sparse. Other than that, we would highly recommend this hotel to any families visiting Phuket.

Very Good8.0
The Novotel on Karon Beach is a sweet hotel. The breakfast buffet is amazing. All staff members are friendly and very eager to please. My only complaint is that the pools do not have railings to hold onto while entering or exiting. For someone with a balance issue that is important.

Amazing staff and resort
I can't say enough good things about the Novotel Karon Beach Resort. The hotel was beautiful. Amazing pool areas (there is more than one pool), swim up bar, nice view of mountains above. Room was gorgeous- big, clean, spotless and cleaned daily. Its located an easy walk to the main town in Karon. Right across from the beach- you do need to cross a very busy street- but the hotel has a staff member there 24hrs a day to assist in safe crossings. But what really set this hotel apart is the staff. So nice and accommodating. Went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. I got food poisoning during my stay (NOT from the hotel food) and the staff helped reschedule a day tour I had scheduled for that day -- they sent someone up to the room to check on me and bring me electrolytes and medication-- and they even sent a card the next day to say they hoped I was feeling better. Really a wonderful resort.
