On arrival we were shown to our room (at the farthest end of the hotel) whose balcony was about 15 feet from the very active construction site next door. The work starts at 8am and goes on until 8pm and can be extremely noisy. Instantly not happy with the situation I requested another room only to be told that there wasn't another one available until the next day (this was not the case as there were loads of empty rooms). We were given a different room which overlooked the pool area and thankfully our holiday could begin. Once we'd changed rooms we had a good stay at the Karon Princess.
The room was cleaned daily and at no time was there any concern about needing to lock anything up although there was a safe box provided for valuable items.
Breakfast was quite good (get there early to get a table) with a reasonable selection of food available. The 'egg lady' looks fierce but speak to her while she cooks your eggs and she's really nice.
We would stay at the Karon Princess again-providing we can be guaranteed a room nowhere near the construction site because that was the only negative. Overall the Karon Princess offered pretty good value, clean rooms and is perfect for the beach which is literally across the road. Both parts of Karon are within walking distance which is good for restaurants. The local bus runs right outside so you don't need a Tuk Tuk to get to and from Phuket Town and if you're feeling lazy but want to go to Kata grab the bus for 35 Baht.
