We booked via Agoda and went for the pool access room. The room rate was incredible given the location being very near to the beach, free minibar, clean and comfortable room. The bed was a tad hard but all the other good stuff made up for it, including friendly staff that never fail to smile and greet each guest. No... More

Very luxurious,modern, clean, spacious rooms. Calm romantic hotel with a long swimming pool. Excellent Staff, free mini bar filled daily in the refrigerator. Very near the beach, markets and restaurants, but I found nothing special about Karon, i recommend travelers to stay in Patong, kata, phi phi island. Good breakfast but: not suitable for middle easterns and Muslims. Small hotel,... More

We have just returned from an amazing trip to Phuket staying at the Sugar Marina Art for the 1st time and we were not disappointed. Location is excellent, pool access rooms are perfect for a dip in the pool whenever you feel like it. Breakfast was a good assortment of western, thai etc. Staff were extremely helpful and always cheerful.... More

I enjoyed my stay at Sugar Marina. The free minibar was a big plus. Rooms were of a good size, staff were friendly and the included buffet breakfast was good. Nice and close to the beach and the anything you could need in Karon! Good price for what you get.

It is a simple hotel with simple breakast buffet. The location was very good as it was close to the beach and restaurants and spas. Staff were friendly. Pool was very small and not impressive. Overall a good hotel for a short stay if you are looking for a simple and cheaper hotel.

Indeed a nice and comfortable place to stay..location was great (walking distance to beach and food is everywhere), friendly staff, and was given pool access room without extra charges (due to last min addition bed)...miss that place after we left...definitely be here again once we reach karon.

We stayed here in early May for about 10 days. Check in was fast, and we had to pay up front, which was unusual. But enjoyed the free ice cream. Great location - Turn right out of the street and your only 5min walk to the beach and turn left you immediately have plenty of mini marts, pharmacy's, restaurants and... More

We arrived feeling exhausted from a two hour bus ride from the airport to a little chocolate ice cream while checking in! So perfect! The hotel is modern and we requested a pool view with breakfast. I only have two complaints and that is the shower pressure is poor and people were able to smoke in neighboring rooms which made... More
