This place probably wasn't the best choice for my spoiled North American personality that was experiencing severe culture shock. I would rate it as a 2-star hotel at best. The staff were kind, but they have limited English. Compared to my hotel in Bangkok, their English was terrible. Somehow, we managed to communicate and book a car pick up and... More

I stayed at the Karon Princess Hotel in early March 2015. The first thing that I liked about it was its location within walking distance from the sea, it takes you about 2 minutes to cross the road and you find yourself on a nice beach. The room was cleaned up by very friendly and smiling staff every day, it... More

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
