Location. It is bang opposite Karon beach. You just need to cross the road. Though there are no sea facing rooms.
Note that you cannot walk to patong, you need a ride.
Rooms on one side of the bldg have a complete greenery view. You would have to request this in advance.
The rooms are great as compared to the price you pay. We paid around SGD 70 per night.
You cannot walk to Patong. So you would need a ride if you want to get some action, night life. There are restaurants in Karon, but u can find much better and slightly cheaper variety in Patong.
This was my second stay at this hotel. First time it was a great experience. It was very new then.
But now I can see there are Maintenance Issues.
The bathroom floor was not very clean. Though the toilet was very clean.
The bed side platform had big stains.
Though, I should mention that the bedsheets and towels were absolutely clean and fresh.
The staff helps wherever possible, but I have a feeling they are not really bothered if the guest is facing any issues.
We found 2 INSECTS in our breakfast. I understand that veggies are prone to have worms, but that does not mean they are not supposed to be cleaned.
When we informed about the insects in our food, the waitress informed the staff at reception, and that was the end of story. No one got back to us, neither was there any apology. A one word sorry would hav been fine by us. But nothing.
While checking out, we mentioned about our experience again. The charge for breakfast for one person for one day was waived off, again without a sorry, or any concern.
Still I would recommend this hotel as I think their Deluxe room for SGD 50 to 80 bucks is value for money.
However I also believe that it is not difficult for the staff to improve the maintenance in the bathrooms and to show a little more concern to any issues faced by guests.
Request in advance for a room facing the green side. Hill facing rooms.
Grand Deluxe room = Deluxe...
