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

Not really sure where to start but i did promise my self i would send in this review to hopefully help others. This hotel was a night mare !! The only good thing going for it was the location. Location being only 3-4 minutes to a great sandy beach and seconds to bars and restaurants. When we arrived to our... More

I have just return home after 4 nights in Karon Whale Resort. It is a simple yet sweet resort with the basic needs catered. However, try to search thru the web for the best price as I manage to book the room @ a very affordable price (26% of the Hotel Website price), with Breakfast inclusive. As I expect the... More

This hotel is a really nice place to stay the rooms are spacious maybe a little dated, we had a problem with the water running brown for a few days which was a little worrying but we got it sorted out, although some nights you have to time your shower well, as the hot water is a little scarse.
