This hotel is a comfortable place to stay in Karon and good location across from the beach and plenty of restaurants and souvenir type shops/stalls nearby. Mini mart right at front of hotel is very handy. There were some negatives though - some reception staff not friendly/welcoming, which was a bad start when we first arrived. However staff in breakfast... More

The property is in a great location close to shops and great restaurants. We had room 104 on the ground floor with Pool Access which was great. The room was a good size and very clean. Breakfast was very ordinary with not many choices for Australian's was more suited to Asian / Russian cuisine which was fine but just not... More

The hotel rooms are very nice, spacious and kept very clean, we had pool side rooms with a balcony which were charming.... It just rained too much for us to use the pool often in our 11 night stay. We found the wifi service quite poor, on our first day there was a notice in reception advising the Internet was... More

This property was good.Location,staff,food & cleanliness all good. However,we STRONGLY objected to having to pay for the whole holiday on arrival. Usually a credit card imprint is required for obvious reasons.but to pay for the whole stay before even seeing the room was hard to take.The receipt stating"no refund" didn't help.

I stayed at Karon Sea Sands in April 2015 with a friend. While it was fine it was nothing special. The "buffet breakfast" was a huge disappointment - very few options and the food they did have was very average. That being said, the all-you-can-eat curry night (usually held on Fridays) was AMAZING and I would definitely recommend attending that.... More

Leave the hotel, cross the road and you are on a large, quiet stretch of white sand beach. We had a junior suite which was well maintained and serviced to suit us. Just let reception know when you're ready and the cleaning team turn up. Very handy for the nightlife (5 minutes walk) great base for tours etc. It's almost... More

A beautiful, relaxing and clean hotel. I would happily return. Close enough to the nightlife but far away enough that you ar not kept awake. A few short steps away from the beach. The service was fine and my room was always tidy to come back to.

Hotel is right opposite the beach. We were in Room 418 and it was large, clean and fairly quiet. Great rooms and great maid service. Thanks Sa! Breakfast good and nice pool. Lovely reception staff - especially Lin and Joy but they were all great. Wifi was a bit temperamental and a lot faster while sitting at reception. Very helpful... More

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
