We stayed here for 4 nights over Chinese New Year. The hotel is small and basic and situated on a quite road at the north end of Karon Beach. It is away from all traffic and noisy streets, but a quick walk away if you do want to explore Karon or catch a taxi to other parts of Phuket. The beach is a few steps away from the hotel, just across a small dirt road (you can't get much closer than that in Karon - most Karon hotels are across the busy main road from the beach).
The rooms are basic but clean and spacious. Our air conditioner was a bit noisy but we managed to sleep with it! The breakfast buffet was fresh and more than enough to suit most tastes - fresh fruit, eggs cooked to order, waffles or pancakes, cereals....
The pool is the main feature of the hotel as all rooms look out onto the it; it is a lovely clear, refreshing blue pool and wonderful to have a swim after a hot walk or day on the beach.
My husband and I had a suite on the first floor which was spacious and private and a sea view. Our daughter was in a ground floor room which opens directly out onto the pool. Would advise against ground floor if you want privacy.
The staff were very friendly and pleasant. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a quiet and relaxed holiday right on the beach.
We ate a few meals next door at Tony's restaurant which has cheap tasty meals and free high speed wi-fi. There are also a couple of local restaurants close by and look for the restaurants right on the beach at the most north end of Karon beach.
