“Amazing Stay!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Perfect location, close to all resturants, the beautiful beach and huge shopping plaza. The staff are genuinely friendly and are not pushy for tips (although we gave them when they were warrented). Most friendly pool barman on the planet. The rooms are super clean, comfortable and spacious. The beds are HUGE but firm (all thai beds are firm), and the pillows are soft and fluffy. The breakfast selection was magnificent and poached eggs to order were perfect each time. The musical trio who played each night were also very good. No problems with english or billing, the account was totally accurate at the end of the stay. Great aircon, although bring your own conditioner as there is only conditioning shampoo supplied. Spa massage was ok but a facial and massage in karon itself is much better value. One hour free wifi each day was a great touch. Just around the corner is a the Adaman coffee co - best coffee ever. This resort is highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 111 is right next to the pool without the added cost of a pool front room.

Older style property, with large rooms in fabulous location. Property is exceptionally well maintained, and staff are very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much effort for them. Stayed there Nov 2012. Massage girls at front of hotel greeted us like family every day with hugs all round on our last day. Good coffee just down the road that became one of our daily visits. Highly recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Rooms with garden view on ground floor are more private

This is great place to stay. Staff were nice and very helpful. Karon beach is across the road from the resort. The surrounding area is a lot quiter than Patong so is ideal if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle . I will stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 3rd floor. It was quite and clean.

We had a wonderful stay here late Sept, early Oct 2012. It was a last minute replacement of a terrible first accommodation we booked that didn't work out.

Anyway, this place was wonderful. We booked a pool access room which was spacious and had two double beds. Plenty of space for a family with two small kids.

The kids absolutedly loved the direct access to the pool from the balcony. It is so convenient, especially when we all got a tummy bug except for our six year old. This way, she could still swim in the pool while we watched her from our room, so she didn't get bored for the couple of days we were room bound.

The breakfast had a good choice, although they should do something about the bees hanging around the drinks dispensers. It was very offputting.

It is very well located too, directly across the road from the beach, close to restaurants and markets. It's a smaller place, no kids club but really cosy and just far away from the busy road so it didn't get the noisy traffick coming through.

Would totally recommend this place.

I bought the 10 day Groupon deal for this resort and what incredible value it turned out to be.
The resort is well located away from the hustle and bustle of Patong but also close to everything you need.

Staff are very friendly and courteous and the facilities at the resort are good.

Not sure what the normal rates are here but if you see the groupon deal grab it!

We booked this room via a Groupon - so a very good deal for us! We found the rooms and service very good and enjoyed spending time both at their lovely pool and on the beach. We stayed on a ground floor - not my first choice as I prefer a higher floor - but it was a lovely room and very convenient. We especially liked the little lounger area in the room and the very comfy
back support pillow there!
I had a little problem communicating at times with staff - it took 3 times before they got my airport transportation correct - and then it was an hour early. That said, they were all very gracious in their communication and always greeted us with a smile.
The hotel is very convenient to the beach, shops, restaurants - I would highly recommend Karon Sea Sands!

Room Tip: I too would not stay 1st floor poolside - not enough privacy.
