We stayed here for 10 nights on a Half Board basis. You get a voucher for your evening meal which you can use at lunchtime if you wish to eat out in the evening. The Dinner Menu is all Thai/Chinese type food and really nice however with only around 6 choices does become a little repetitve/boring. Breakfast is OK ish... More

Returning to The Front Village Hotel after being there 5 years ago. Sad to say the breakfast and dinner was not great, much better 5 years ago. Left over dinner items for breakfast ie. minestrone soup, pork stir fry etc. Dinner not much choice not even a red, green or yellow curry on the menu. Having had a gastric bypass... More

Front village is a reasonably priced resort walking distance to restaurants and beach. I booked hotel directly and wi fi was included as well as breakfast. We stayed in a pool access room it was quiet, the top floor rooms do have sea view. The staff at this hotel are very friendly and efficient. The Australian channel was not working... More

The rooms are advertised as having ocean view. We were on the top floor and found that the ocean could be glimpsed through the trees. Te beach is about a 5-7 minute walk and entails crossing a very busy road. They do provide a guard with a flag to help. Very thoughtful and probably essential. The balcony is nice but... More

Its location is just right. Not too far from hustle and bustle patong area and few walks away to reach Karon beach and Karon center. Nice swimming pool and friendly staff. I stayed 2 nights there and it worthy staying.

This hotel is located in a quieter area of Karon on the Patong side but still close enough to everything. Our room suffered from a noisy air conditioner but I have no doubt that you could find fault in any room in which you stay. And really if that's the worst thing about this hotel then it's going to be... More

Stayed at the front village for a week and got a free upgrade of our room upon arrival witch was a nice start of our holiday.The room was spacious for a family of 4 with big beds. We usually stay at hotels with bigger pool areas but were satisfied with the rather small pool that front village offered. Most of... More

Great hotel, great staff, so helpful and polite, great food, great cocktails, great rooms. Had a wonderful time here, only 5 mins walk to the beach, about 7 mins walk to the night life of Karon. 10 minute tuk tuk ride into Patong. Would stay here again. Just one point. Think the hotel could offer FREE wifi.
