The positive. Short walk to restaurants and shops. Rooms with ok size. Fridge / etter heater for coffee / tea. Air con worked well. Poor sea view due to large trees. we had no problems with the water. Everything worked well. The negative: Not friendly staff at reception. Internet only in reception area against payment. Hard beds.

The reception staff were surly. Don't speak English. All the employes couldn't raise a smile. They don't clean de bathroom. The breakfast was poor. Near you can get karonburi, very better in all aspects. There hotel needs an update, and people motivated, not people who treat us like invisible people.

OK,, confession time. We like hot showers, not necessarily long but dependable. Not so much at Karon Princess. The location is excellent, the people are very accommodating, but the room we stayed in was dated. (Quick note: if you like to use the drinks in the minibar and replace them, know that they are marked subtly. We replaced the Chang... More

Loved the room, 1214, top floor and total privacy as balcony screened by trees. Great air con and room kept clean. Breakfast buffet same every day. Drinks need to be much colder and hot food to be kept hot. Coffee at breakfast, delicious. Staff at reception and waitresses not overly helpful. Resturant Manager very helpful.

Stayed for 14 nights at the Karon Princess. Found the hotel ideally centrally situated for easy access to beach and restaurants. We booked a delux room which was kept clean on a daily basis. Breakfast is a buffet service and has an egg station where eggs are cooked to order. We found the staff to be very helpful and polite.... More

As usual we book and pay through the internet and when we get at the hotel we just give the printed copy of the booking and in few minuted everything is usually sorted out. Well not in this case. After photocopy our passport and checking our booking reference number they still started asking questions after questions. After a good 20... More

We had not booked via the Internet, so as a walk in we were lucky enough to be shown what they call their "pool room" not I would imagine everyone's taste.... But for us this was great!!! It's a ground floor room leading onto the small pool area and jacuzzi. Clearly noisy at times, often with children in the early... More

For the price it's a great deal. You can walk to bars, restaurants, shopping and it's right across the beach. However because of the way we were treated by the staff, I'd have to recommend to NOT stay here. The bell man wouldn't leave our room until we gave him a tip and when he left he just walked out...

Spent our last night here. Hadn't booked anywhere and the hotel we had thought to go to did not exist! The staff were helpful, getting us a standard room on the spot. Seemed too expensive for what it was. But the pool was great - there are two seperate sections so when too many people were at one, we retreated... More
