“Feels like home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011 via mobile

I cannot say one bad thing about our stay at the Green Island Guest House. I will start with the basics of feeling like your right at home- rooms are clean and cool, hot shower with high pressure, comfy bed, and the location is perfect. My first night there, I spent some time at the bar with the owner and his family and friends. The entire staff are the sweetest, and if you have the time be sure to get to know Tony the owner. He is very helpful if you need advice on things to do or places to eat. The travel agent, Tuk, is right next door, and she is amazing as well. Be sure to check out this hotel if you are on a budget or just want to save money in general. We saved so much, and our trip was awesome, because we got to spend the extra money on activities. There are places nearby to eat breakfast for less than 165 baht, if that is something you may be concerned with. The family at the Green Island Guest House will know you by name, and you won't find that anywhere else.. Trust me!

If you have ever heard stories or seen anything about Thailand on the television do not believe it! Go there and see it for yourself.
Some of the most beautiful people we have ever met.
This extends to the Green Island guest house, every one is there to help and cannot do enough for you. You are made to feel welcome as soon as you step out of the taxi.
Tony and his family were waiting for for us to arrive rather than go out to dinner.
He gave us directions to the nearest restaurant and made sure we settled into our room (after 20 hours of travelling we needed looking after and for Tony it was no trouble)
We will be going back as soon as we can and look forward to it.
If you love the beach it's only 5 min walk away.

Found this hotel after staying in a more expensive hotel for a couple of days. Green Islands is really value for money. Nice, clean airconditioned rooms, friendly athmosphere and very service-minded staff. Definetly a great choise if you're visiting Karon, looking forward to coming back!

Stayed for a few days before Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
The rooms (Green decor) are clean and spacious with TV, fridge (not mini-bar, BYO) and a small seating area. Bathroom basic but perfectly adequate - the only negative (at least in my room) was the fact that the shower drain was across the other side of the bathroom (I believe this is what the professionals call a 'wet' room - the floor was certainly covered after the shower; mind you don't slip).
As a guesthouse, you don't get 24hr reception and, as I got to Karon early on my first day, I had to wait for a couple of hours before the place opened up. Though it was hardly their fault, the management were so appologetic about my having to sit in a nearby cafe drinking coffee for a little over an hour that they lopped a massive discount on the room - my kind of staff!
There is no food service available in the guest house, but it's difficult to throw a brick in this area of Karon without hitting at least 3 or 4 eateries within walking/staggering/crawling distance - Tony even has a couple of menus behind the bar of local delivery guys if you can't drag yourself away from the Guesthouse bar!
Special mention has to go to the delightful Tuk who runs the tourist centre attached to the Green Island - nothing was too much trouble for her and the trips were all organised perfectly!
So, it's definitely Green; It's a little peaceful island close to the main Karon Nightlife, and its a great value for money guesthouse that will certainly get my bhat again when I'm in the area.

As a holiday princess I was not happy when my husband informed me that we were going on holiday to phuket, staying in a Guest house. Especially as we have a young child. But, I went with an open mind and found to my surprise that me and my son had the time of our lives staying at the Green Island Guest House.

The staff were very kind and helpful to the whole family especially when my little boy caught a cold.They went out of their way to help us, there was nothing that was to much trouble.

The rooms are to a very good standard, cleaned every day, extremely good location for restaruants and only a couple of minutes to the beach.

The Owners of the Green Island Guest House are very welcoming and we enjoyed many a night relaxing in the bar having a friendly chat as family with the owners and other guests.

I would recomend this guest house to every one visiting Phuket whether you have a family, couple or indeed single, don't bother with the hotels they are just over priced. Stay here in this guest house and use the money saved and go on trips and shopping.

Nice location minutes from beach. On the edge of the nightlife zone so you can either sleep or join in - choose! Friendly,clean, good-value guesthouse. Tourism office one side, pub on the other. Scooters for hire. No food but plenty of bars,restaurants and hawker stalls nearby. Enjoyed my stay very much!
