My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights during our short trip to Phuket on a Groupon deal, and have to say the service we received from reception was always warm & helpful and it was always pleasant walking in to the resort! We stayed in a deluxe room with buffet breakfast included, it had a good selection of... More

For five nights. Have always thought this was a fantastic hotel and booked the pool access room deliberately, paid more for it as we have always loved it and I have written glowing reviews for this resort previously. On check in today, they have overbooked, no pool access room available. When reception called the manager, he said they would upgrade,... More

We just spent 4 nights here. Family of 4, 2 young kids. Staff great, food good. Location excellent in Karon. Set nicely back from the main Akron beach road, so it's peaceful, but closet on the action. The room was spacious and they gave us a spare bed for free. The pool is great and the kids had a blast....

We were lucky to secure a deal through groupon which meant a significant saving. We had a room over looking the pool which was nice and met our needs in terms of size and comfort. Large and comfortable bed, room cleaned perfectly everyday by the friendly staff. Breakfast set in a beautiful environment, polite and helpful staff and offered many... More

Good hotel near Karon circle with good breakfast and lovely pool. We did have an issue upon arrival as we were informed that a russian couple had not vacated our junior suite. We were put in a pool view room which the hotel considered was an upgrade but had no kitchen and dining area .This issue did take until 1400hrs... More

We stayed for four nights at the end of our Thailand trip.......we were offered an upgrade to a poolside room which is always nice so we went for it. The room was very large and comfortable but a little dark. The staff were all lovely and we found them very helpful. I don't think I would stay in this hotel... More

Chose this property for our stay in Karon Beach based on TripAdvisor reviews. Selected a pool side room for the same reason. I really wanted to rate this property Very Good, but just couldn't. First the good: The property is tucked in off the street and really looks nice as you approach it. The lobby, general area, pool and room... More

Dear MarkhMD, Thank you for your comments and suggestions. We have already made timings for the pool to be opened until late but there was a big communication gap between the Front Office and Engineering dept. We have made sure that this will never happen again. We have changed our Spa to inhouse "Blue Water Spa" but again our mistake... More

Unfortunately the photos of the hotel don't reflect the reality. The breakfast is not at all 4-star level. They claim to have two restaurants (Indian and Thai) but they are located in the same place which, by the way, is the breakfast place. The rooms are just ok. The staff is not what you would expect to get in Thailand.... More

Dear Princebb, Thank you for your comments. We would like to point out a few things : We have 2 restaurants in the resort, both at the same area as the breakfast, open air and near the pool area. If you are there to have a new ambiance for different restaurants, then we are at fault, but we have 2... More

I had read some mixed reviews about this resort so I wasn't quite sure what to expect and I have to say that I was a little surprised by all the 5/5 star reviews. While I quite enjoyed my stay, the resort is in a great location, the property and staff service was pretty average. The check-in experience was quite... More

I did a lot of TA research before boiling down to Karon Sea Sand. This was our last destination in Thailand so I didnt mind choosing a place that's more pricy. We stayed 5 nights. The welcome at the resort was quite pleasing. Nice welcome drink and a warm towel and the staff will do the rest of the formalities... More

Dear Hardik M, Thank you for taking the time to write your comments. We believe there are a few factual mistakes such as our "egg" personnel has been the same for the last 8 months and so on.
