Very friendly staff and great food with even better prices. Situated across tje road from Karon beach so you have a nice view while enjoying your meal. A free fresh fruit platter at the end of each meal is a nice bonus too.

Stayed at the Ramada with our 2 young children(7/3yo) in Sept 2010. We selected this hotel as the kids friendly pool looked fantastic with slides etc. Thought Karon beach would be a nice quite change from Patong. Boy were we sorry! The place is very dated and run down, pool slide didn't work, rooms are very basic, with concrete floors.... More

- Hotel is aging and in desperate need of a makeover, the cot we received was broken, with stains, I requested a new one and this was mouldy. The plaster on doorway was falling off without going near it, the grout in the bathrooms was moudly. A bolt on the slide at the kids pool was broken but it was... More

Everything looked very nice when we checked in at night and the reception staff were very nice. It started when we had upgraded our rooms to deluxe without any additional payment, which we were very happy to. But ... When we went to breakfast the morning after we got us a shock. There was no service at all and the... More

OK - Now this place is good value for money - As you can see its not expensive. Location is good, close to everything in Karon Beach and close to the Beach as well. Resides on a main road so if you don't like the sound of traffic don;t stay here. Kids club,Pools and resort itself are all very good... More

My family and I booked to stay with the Talay (formally Ramada) for 10 nights and it was a nightmare. Nothing was good about this resort and here's a list of some of our problems - When we arrived at the resort there was pungent smell that was very unpleasant, the keycard to our room didn't work and there was...

Positive - free wireless, ok breakfast, free water Negative - very old, grotty and not looked after at all, room aircon is loud and hardly working, the gym if falling apart. This is in my opinion a hotel with a maximum score of 2 star. We would not return to this hotel.
