We have been to Phuket before staying in hotel. This Christmas (2012) we decided to stay in this Karon hotel. The main bedroom is big (probably too big) as my mother in law and 12 year old were put on foldaways in the lounge room (not that they saw this as a problem). I just think that the main bedroom is a waste of space. The service throughout the hotel is great and they were always willing to answer questions and point us in the right direction. Christmas Eve dinner was sensational! Breakfast was excellent with a wide selection to choose from - the omelettes were to die for! Special thanks to the egg chefs who made them each morning. Yes there are a lot of stairs in this hotel as there isn't a lift - my 70 year old mother in law found them a challenge at first but by the end of the stay she was getting up them in one go. The hill from the hotel to the road is also a bit steep but not really a challenge - there is a tuk tuk to take you up and down the hill. There is also a free shuttle bus to take you in and out of Patong. The only things that I can think to improve on is having uht milk in the rooms for tea and coffe - you have to buy it at the little store in the hotel. There is no free wifi - you have to purchase that too. The tuk tuk that takes you down the bottom of the hill could take you a little bit further to the markets near the round a bout. Karon is nice and quiet however it depends on what you are looking for in a holiday - we preferred the hustle and bustle of Patong.
