First of all, they would not allow us to check in early as we requested in advance, so we had to walk round Karon in the rain for three hours. The breakfast was dreadful enough without the swarms of wasps and flies all over the place...mainly the jam. To top things off, my fiancee had her ATM card stolen from... More

Ok so I stayed at a quiet time. The location is amazing and the staff are pretty good but I saw they charge 4500 in high season. If I paid that I would be so disappointed. I paid 2200 and that's a little too much. I would say that 1500 is a more generous price. The rooms are old and... More

I booked the Karon Whale Resort for it's location and getting a good 'low season' room rate. Yes, the location is good, in the heart of Karon and only a short walk from the beach, bars and restaurants. The staff also were helpful and friendly apart from one of the security guards who seemed to be in a permanent bad... More

After staying at the resort in July 2012 it was an easy decision to book another week there. Unfortunately, changes have clearly been made, and not for the better. The rooms are not clean. Walls have stains, windows were dirty. Cobwebs on the ceiling. There are NO English speaking staff. When I was there previously there were two or three... More
