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

This is one of the most peaceful hotels we have stayed in during our stay in Southern Thailand. It is approx 300 metres from the beach but in a side street away from the traffic noise. We booked a superior room with twin beds. The price difference between superior and standard was not a huge amount. The room has air... More

Just stayed at Karon Whale Resort and I was very disappointed. I have been going to Thailand for 16 years and I have stayed in many ranges of hotels and guest houses., this hotel is one of the worst I've stayed in. The rooms were in need of some painting, but they were instead replacing floor tiles in the reception.... More
