My girlfriend and I stayed here recently for 4 nights after booking based on trip advisor ratings, and we're glad we did! Pineapple is run by English expat Steve and his lovely wife Lek. The place has a real homely vibe and is very laid back and welcoming. Rooms are clean, comfortable and serviced daily. The food served at Pineapple... More

This hotel is conveniently located within close walking distance of the beach and bars/ restaurants. The owners and staff are very welcoming and friendly. They also have a small restaurant which offers both Thai and western dishes and some great breakfasts, all reasonably priced. The rooms are very comfortable with duvets rather than blankets covered with sheets as in most... More

Been here before a few times and immediately felt "at home" after arrival. Steve, Lek and staff are most friendly and helpful. All necessities as 7/11 (7/24??) ATM's and small foodmarket are around the corner and a number of restaurants on a few minutes walk. "Guesthouse" is an understatement, Pineapple is more a hotel with good sized rooms and immaculate... More

We booked for 2 nights in Pineapple Guesthouse. Fresh and clean sheets to sleep in, a clean bathroom and a kind staff. Each room has a safe, and also a locker at reception. Free wifi, way better than the one we had in our expensive hotel room in Chiang Mai. We have no luck : we arrived in Phuket in... More

We stayed in Pineapple Guesthouse in February. It was a good price and we had a private room with private bathroom. It was clean and quiet. I think I would have preferred one of the rooms with a balcony, but it was still a nice place to stay. The service was excellent. We would recommend a stay here. The guest... More

Arrived in Phuket on a late evening flight, but it was a hassle-free trip from the airport to the guesthouse because I requested for an airport pickup from Steve days before I flew in. And although it was already very late (almost midnight, I think) when I reached the guesthouse, somebody is still up to meet me & checking-in was... More

I cannot recommend this guesthouse highly enough. We had been told my everyone to skip Phuket, or get to an island as soon as we could. We happened upon Pineapple Guesthouse at Karon, and ended up loving it so much we came back again post-island excursions before heading North. It is SO close to the nicest beach in Phuket, and...

We were arriving in Phuket late at night and booked a taxi through the guesthouse. Unfortunately there was no taxi there and it turned out that the manager had not passed on the information about us needing a taxi. We were bothered by the 'taxi mafia' at the airport and felt unsafe. We managed to call Pineapple and they sent... More

I couldn't remember this incident with the taxi but then realised the review is from a guest who stayed almost a year ago, so no surprise. Mistakes do occasionally happen and we can only apologise. More

Nice clean hotel with friendly staff located reasonably near kata beach (15-20 min walk) Good wifi. Good size room. A bit hard to find at night coming from the airport. Staff will arrange taxi for you for day trips at a good price.

Hi Travelers! I am sure most will find this hostel acceptable (comparably speaking)..and for the price its O.K. However, upon our arrival we did not feel welcomed. Staff were not overly friendly. They didnt bother to pull up our reservation so they gave us a room with a balcony. We offered to switch rooms because that was not what we... More

Not the same story regarding the room as I, the unfriendly Brit, got from my staff. The guests said they thought they had booked a balcony room whereas we had them booked into a standard. They were the ones that couldn't find their reservation. They then decided the area was too quiet for them so asked to check out after... More
