Good location, comfortable and clean
We arrived at approx 3pm and the room was not ready. Had to wait about 20 mins to access. The room was a little dated and did live up to the expectation given from the photos. Overall the room was comfortable and clean, and the hotel very well located for the beach and local amenities, and was quiet at night. Staff were friendly, while I didn't have any real requirements, so I can't comment on helpfulness etc. Karon Beach was in my opinion a generic tourist resort, and didn't reflect the true beauty that other parts of Thailand have to offer.

WIFI IS HORRIBLE
Not gonna lie whenever I stay in a hotel I really depend on the reviews I read on hotels.ca and tripadvisor. I know some people like to over exaggerate about some things like the tv didn't have enough channels so I usually just brush those off. Overall though, this was a good hotel because it's literally a two minute walk from the beach and the hotel will give you towels and mats for the beach. Also it's in the middle of the hustle and the bustle so you'll never be bored in the area. Hint: The farther left you walk from hotel the more you'll find cheaper prices of the same food and the more you'll find more locals which mean more local cuisine. The rooms are a bit older and can use a bit of upgrading but the resort itself is really beautiful. The rooms are large and the free breakfast buffet has a wonderful plethora of food, I'm not really sure why the other reviews are complaining. When I say the rooms are older I mean the toilets are very weak and can only be flushed every ten minutes. The air con sounds like a kettle is boiling. Sometimes the tap ran brown water but they fixed it. And the worst was the wifi, every day that I was there I had to go down to reception and tell them to restart the router and when that didn't work I used my own WIFI HOTSPOT. Also I know it says on the hotel site they only take cash deposit which I thought was really odd because most if not all take visa. So make sure to have 500 baht on hand.

We had a great stay, but there was no sauna (some pictures on Hotel.com) and there were no view over the pool (as it says on Hotel.com) from 2 out of 4 rooms, as promished. Nice hotel overall
