This place is terrible! I would not eat there if you paid me! The staff more interested in mucking around in front of customes than providing any type of customer service. We had to try to get someone to even take our order and when my pasta meal arrived it wasn't cooked. I sent it back and waited another 20+... More

The best thing about Phuket Island View was our room. If you are looking for a cheap bed and an ok breakfast this is good. There is however no atmosphere, welcoming vibe or energy and it's not somewhere you want to hang out for a long period of time. Suitable for people looking to spend their time at a close... More

This hotel was amazing. We stayed in a bungalow and was well worth it! Beautiful. Across the street from the beach in karon. This is away from all the clubs in patong beeach but well located for restaurants. The hotel restaurant was good as well.

If you enjoy the following things, then you're in for a treat: 1. A small hotel overrun with tour buses (5 tour bus loads) 2. Having your booking lost 3.

Came here through a company group tour. It's quite reasonably price. Good: - Karon beach is a quieter beach alternative. If you're just looking to be away from the crowd and not a private beach, this works. - hotel is reasonably priced. - the beach is right in front! Just crossed the road. - has 3-4 separate pools to divide... More

We booked to stay a few nights here due to the beach location. Our room is overlooking the pool and in need of a refurb. Bed is rock hard! Whilst the reception staff were pleasant on arrival, there was no mention of us travelling on our honeymoon or any effort made to make us feel special. Disappointing really!

This hotel has great potential BUT the front desk staff is so uninterested and unhelpful that it spoils everything! The rooms are ok- taking into account that you are at the beach- no luxury The pools are great and so is the location. Wifi is a joke- really bad!

Stayed here for 3 nights for a business trip in Phuket. I was put in a room at the back building. Got a room with another building's view. Also, no elevator. The room was compact. Air conditioner was good but that was all. No more good thing to say about the room. It was like a place to just take... More

My advice would be don't stay in Karon now I have been to Patong, Karon & Kata. If you are young and like to party stay in Patong if you are older and don't mind a chilled out nightlife stay in Kata Noi or Kata the beach and area is by far the nicest Karon there is allot of Russians... More
