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.

Stayed at this Hotel back in August this year. A very disappointing experience. Whilst the staff are very nice and friendly, our Air Conditioning broke down twice in the first week of our stay. The Shower also leaked. If we had drinks/food by the Swimming Pool or in the Restaurant, I"ll guarantee the staff very rarely delivered our drinks/food order... More

The rooms were tasteful. The bed was huge, but still comfortable. The pools and grounds were well maintained. The staff were fantastic, so friendly and helpful. They even have us a 2 pm check out as we had a late flight at no extra cost.

We have stayed at the Front Village twice now and loved it. It is situated at one end of Karon Beach and is perfect if you don't want to be in the middle of night clubs and hustle and bustle. It is a 10 min walk to shops, markets and restaurants etc and a 5 min walk across the road... More

Resort has an amazing ambient!! I just loved their Ayurvedic Spa services :) Food was simply great, well made and presented. Morning breakfast buffet was average though. View is amazing, try for a room on 3rd or 4th floor to enjoy scenic view. But its not sea front which they claim, its actually a big lake well before the karon... More
