I stayed on 17th Sept 2014, arrived around 11 PM, the receptionists were able to speak English. I got room 132, it's at the corner so it has an extra window that has a pool view but not very clear because of the trees in front. We found that all of the plugs (behind the TV and shower) weren't able... More

This is the worst hotel I've stayed in in thailand - I've been here many times. The staff are so unfriendly. The evening music by the pool was painfully out of tune. Poster by the pool said 'happy hour til 7'. The bar closed at 5.50 Phuket doesn't help. Lots of hassle selling things and taxis all the time. Tuk... More

We had to check-out in the midnight at 3 A.M as we had a 6:30 A.M flight to catch. We checked out at 3A.M, got to our cab which was waiting out and just as our cab driver came along to shut the door, the guy at the hotel reception came out of nowhere and placed a big bag in... More

Spent two weeks here and we were very pleased. The hotel doesn't have an elevator so if you have problems with stairs choose rooms in the lower part of the hotel. The rooms are nice with a lovely view out on the ocean (if you're lucky to get a room quite high up) and it's very clean! The balcony is... More

We booked the most expensive room, and wrote an email to ask to arrange a good location,but the location is not ideal, air conditioning is bad. When we reflect, took two hours and did not fix.Then give us the best rooms room. My six year old daughter also charged a fee of 500B 2 days.Otherwise, I will complain to them.... More

We spent 3 nights at Karona in a deluxe room on the 3rd floor which offered stunning sunset views. The room was huge, exceptionally clean with private balcony. Not recommended for the physically challenged as there is no lift to the upper floors, but we welcomed the exercise. The resort has a large crystal clear swimming pool with bar, wide... More

We were very pleased with our choice, the price vs. quality was excellent. Good location, very close to beach. Breakfast was good, service as well. We arrived at 5 am, and they gave us the room immediately, with no extra charge (normal check-in time 14 or so).

The staff really need to learn better English if they expect foreign visitors. About half of the people we met in the reception did not understand basic English. I asked for help with using the room phone to call external phone numbers in Thailand, and after being told three times how to do it, they explained that guests couldn't call... More
