Our holiday at the Karon Whale Resort didn't get off to a good start as the transfer we had booked from the airport to the hotel didn't turn up although this had been booked directly with the hotel. We had to get a taxi from the airport which actually cost less than what we would have paid for the hotel... More

If you're planning to go to Phuket you can can certainly choose this Hotel! It's really close to the seaside but it's also hidden from the main road so the cars and motorbikes will not disturb you. Very good breakfast is available and sunny swimming pool! Rooms a big, really well cleaned and the A/C work great! Try the thay... More

Stumbled across this one stayed for just one night as booked to go elsewhere. Looks grand from the foyer, rooms very clean, with good amenities, breakfast was buffet style with good choice. Swimming pool good and clean with plenty of sunbeds. Ideally located for bars/restaurants etc. I had some issues using the hotel wi-fi and lost some property, found it... More

After our first trip on Karon beach we were sure we gonna get back there soon. This time our choise was Karon Whale - much more closer to the sea then our previous hotel. The hotel is situated between Karon and Kata - the top two beaches for a budget vacation. The territory is tiny, but very well-groomed. The staff... More

Have been staying in Karon Whale for 2 weeks in November-December 2011. Here is my summary on this hotel: Let's begin with good sides. The location of the hotel is very nice: 5 minutes by feet to the Karon beach, 1 min to bars, shops and taxi\tuk-tuks. The room was huge, though I was in Superior room, didn't see Standart... More

I found this lovely little hotel while wandering around Phuket. I moved out of the hotel I had booked on the internet into Karon Whale Resort. I stayed in room on the ground floor near the pool. You can walk right from your bedroom area through the balcony area down a couple steps to the pool. The bed was comfortable,... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and couldn't fault the service. We stayed in a Deluxe room for 2000 baht per night. Great value for money. We were on 3rd floor over looking the pool. Only slight problem was the water pressure in the shower changed from very strong to very weak. Not a major problem though.... More

Nice little hotel with very nice service. Not the best place to stay if you have small children as it was only a small pool for children. Close to the beach and resturanger and pubs. In-room safe and Internet should have been free.

Positive: Rather ok room, balcony, decent pool - Bad breakfast buffé - imagine that fruits had to stay in the open with flies flying around. It guess fruit is ok if you arrive early to eat but imagine what happens after hours staying in the sun, even though on ice.. It would be enough for them to put some lids... More
