Lovely Old Colonial Hotel
Hotel is quaint and old colonial. Great location from beach and restaurants. My room was lovely. Very large including the bath. We did have a frustrating issue with check in due to misunderstanding and language barrier. Our bellman was great and overall the staff was, as usual, wonderful. Pool area could use a facelift.

I'd find somewhere else
Room was musty smelling, furniture was stained, floors were also dirty and stained, BAD wifi connection in room. The staff took over 20 minutes to exchange towels at the front desk. And the worst of it, the staff gave us (two girls) a conjoined room WITH NO LOCK and on the other side were males! The only plus was it is across the street from the beach.

No Thai Hospitality Here
This is the 3rd hotel we stayed in on our family Thailand trip and hands down the worst experience. This hotel needs a major lesson on customer service and treating guests with respect. The assistant manager, Kim, is especially very rude. We had issues with our key card for 2 days and it was a pain getting anything fixed. My husband really had to throw a fit and demanded that our room be changed, but it was as if they were doing us a favor by giving us rooms that smelled like mold. They eventually gave us a room with pool access and the manager apologized for Kim's behavior, but this was a very bad experience. When you pay for a resort to relax on your vacation, this is not what you want to deal with. Please avoid this hotel because there are much better options. This is not the Thai hospitality we were accustomed to.

Very Appealing Resort in Karon Beach
This was our first hotel on our first ever trip to Thailand. Without much else to compare it to, we definitely enjoyed our stay. The hotel was very pleasant. The lobby is gorgeous. Room was very nice with a great shower. Pool was comfortable. The travel desk had lots of options for sight seeing and set us up with taxis (not cheap but most convenient way to get around). Highly recommend seeing the Big Buddah. From the mountain you can see half of Phuket. The hotel really had everything we needed, so any complaints were pretty minor. Wifi only worked during off-peak hours. The pool bar food was pedestrian, however the breakfast was fantastic. We booked a Terrace room with a garden view because we loved the traditional look. Upon a late night arrival they "upgraded" us to a modern room with a pool view but didn't tell us. When we got to the room we were too jet lagged and tired to care. We booked an extra night for a cheaper room, and they let us stay in the same room so that made up for it in the end. Not sure I would recommend Karon Beach of all the places in Phuket. Beach was a bit dirty, and most of the patrons were older Europeans. If you're set on Karon Beach the Old Phuket is a great place to stay.
