Writing this review from Bangkok and am still confused by the tripadvisor ranking of Andaman Seaview. The only accurate one I saw was a rater commenting not to expect 4-star quality. The staff are extremely friendly and the location in Karon is very good. Across from the beach and an easy walk to shopping areas/restaurants. Additionally, the common areas of the hotel are very nice. Decks, pretty pools, well kept landscape. However the rooms that you see in the photos on here are not accurately depicted.
We were expecting simple, non-luxury, but still clean and newish looking. Any one of the following observations would not normally turn me off, however when all of the following are present, it's disappointing.
Lighting in bathroom dark and inadequate
Paint peeling off excessively from doors
Chrome/stainless fixtures very dull and worn
Grout in tile and tub sealing all mildewy
Unclean shower (excessive hair all over wall from previous occupant(s))
Shower door old old and no lighting in shower
Front door had daylight showing through all three sides when shut
Front door did not secure well: took full weight leaning in plus finess to throw deadbolt
Lighting in room poor
All fixtures pretty wornout
My wife and I weren't looking for anything special but our room showed way too much mileage for us to be comfortable and confident. We ended our stay early and changed hotels. If you're not expecting a lot and get a good deal, there are many positive qualities about the Andaman, but everything I wrote is an accurate observation.
