We arrived anticipating a really nice hotel for the price and how it looked in the photos, however the hotel definitely needs renovating. The rooms are large and have potential, but are very dark, gloomy and out-dated. The WiFi was also very slow. None of the power sockets fitted the adapters we used in all the other hotels, and at...

Dear larasmith2015, Thank you for taking time to write a review. We noticed you could have asked for adapters at the front office if you had problems with your ones. As for the room needing renovations, we are always keeping tabs on it but we have a classic old world style with dark wood and warm colours, but we will... More

We had a very nice stay at Karon Sea Sands during our recent family trip to Phuket. We were 2 adults and 3 kids, we booked 2 interconnecting rooms for our family. The rooms were very clean, beds comfortable, and the rooms were larger in size than most other resorts we have stayed at. Rooms had good wifi, and many... More

Mostly enjoyed our stay at Karon Sea & Sands.. Place could do with a little renovating and perhaps some brighter lights in the bathroom.. Found it was still a bit pricey for what we got though. However the staff were very friendly. As it was raining, I din't find Karon to be a good spot to stay unless all you... More

Dear Nicolle B, Thank you for your comments. We have taken your ideas about brighter lights in the bathrooms for discussion and will see if we can add some more to the 5 we already have there. Karon is a place as you said correctly, to relax as compared to other beaches with their action packed night life so sometimes... More

I visited this hotel in June 2015 and I had no complaints. The rooms are big, beds comfortable and the air conditioning works. In fact, we had ours on all the time. Bathroom has a tub and a shower. The hotel grounds have beautiful gardens and a stunning swimming pool. Our package included buffet breakfast which had a great variety.... More

Stayed for seven nights in a pool access room. Room is large and well appointed but the whole hotel is just aging a bit. Daily room service and cleanliness was good. Breakfast was good with lots to chose from and the egg lady was very efficient. Pool was good but a bit small. Our balcony opened to the pool but... More

Dear Ozejim, Thank you for taking the time to write your comments. The pool is a recurring joke amongst us that at 50+mtrs long some people still call it small. I am sure you must have seen the children’s pool beside it. We have taken your comments about the lights and renovations and will discuss with the board about it,... More

I stayed at this hotel with my son and daughter (both in their 20s). We had a great time. It is excellent for just lounging around, with a lovely pool and with the beach just across the road with plenty of shops and other diversions nearby.

The rooms are a good size and clean with everything we needed. Balcony overlooking the pool was impressive. We upgraded to a pool room for the last few days and it was a really nice treat but would only suggest rooms 1 to 5 in the deeper end to make it worthwhile. The location is really good with the beach... More

We stayed here during low season June, and had a really great experience. The staff were absolutely wonderful, so helpful with everything and made us feel really comfortable. The hotel itself is beautiful, rooms were very nice and clean. Just a short trip away from patong, would definitely recommend karon sea sands.
