We have just spent seven wonderful days at Karon Sea Sands and were very tempted to extend another week to make up for the disagreeable time in Bangkok. We arrived from Bangkok having spent seven days in a pretentious hotel claiming to be five stars Accommodation and being extremely disappointed were perhaps a bit apprehensive. These fears were completely unfounded.... More

We loved Karon Sea Sands. Great value and close to everything. Breaky was good, rooms were clean and pool bar had a great range of cocktails. My only advice would be to use trip advisor to look for some great local restaurants as the un-affiliated restaurant out the front is pretty bad. Would return in a heart beat. Loved it.

Karon Sea Sands is in a great location to restaurants bars and convenience stores but most importantly the beach, just cross the road and we are at the beach. Staff are wonderful when they ready to do anything to ease the stay for the guests. The food are delicious and nothing beat it. We had 1 bedroom suite equipped with... More

Very good hotel, good service and polite staff - as thai-people always are.... Few metres to nearest small shop to buy water, lemonade etc... Take a tuk-tuk and enjoy of your Holiday in Phuket! We were there on June-July 2011.

Could not fault it. It is what it is and you get what you pay for however you can't pay for honest hospitality and the sea sand delivers. It's never been classed as a big hotel nor a classy resort. What you actually pay for is a room: Check! Food: Check! All the rest is a bonus, really. My partner... More

What a gem! Such a wonderful laid back resort. If there are any negative reports on this great resort then the writer is just too hard to please wherever they go. The rooms are big and beautiful the staff terrific. Having stayed for 4 nights from 21st August my only regret was a family function that cut our stay shorter... More
