“Great friendly clean place ,close to the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2011

I stayed here for 16 nights as it was so close to the beach, bars and restaurants.
Very friendly and clean place with very affordable prices for the time of year.
Fantastic free WI FI service in both the reception area and own room
Nothing bad to say at all....I really liked it
Tip - If you like the beach they provide a load of beach toys,lilo's etc BRILLIANT!!!!!

Spent our holiday diving with Phuket Scuba Club. Just a few minutes walk from the hotel. Good beds, nice room with fridge,safe and everything needed. Free Internet( no hidden costs), and very friendly staff! We stayed at the top floor, so it was a bit tough to carry all the luggage 5 floors, and to walk the stairs after a day with much diving....
Kept us in good shape I guess!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2011

We stayed here for a week at the start of December. We booked one of the seaview rooms on the top floor which was 5 floors up. There wasnt a lift but then again you wouldnt expect there to be one as its only classed as a guesthouse.

On the first night our sleep was disrupted a lot due to a noisy person in the room opposite us and the hallway is very narrow so the sound just seemed to travel right up to the top floor! It was quite the rest of the time that we were there though and we slept really well.

Our room was big and the TV had a vast amount of channels which was a surprise. We also had free Wi-Fi in our room and the shower was always hot. The only downside's were that the water was a bit cloudy and the toilet door was just clear glass. That didnt really bother us but its not something that everyone would be comfortable with!

To our surprise the rest of our stay was brilliant. It was quite and the staff were so helpful. They were able to book tours for us and they spoke good English. The breakfast was basic but it was just what we needed in the morning - toast, fruit and a cup of tea!

We backpacked around Thailand and this is by far the best place that we stayed purely because of the staff. The accomdation is fine if your on a budget and the location is ideal as its 2 minutes away from the beach. We would stay here again.

Hot water didn't work, screen door to the balcony didn't work. Ancient refrigerator stuffed to the gills with overpriced minibar rattled loudly through the night. AC thermostat didn't work, so I had to wake up freezing to turn it off, then sweltering to turn it back on. Internet passcodes for their overly-complicated Internet system didn't work. Owner lives in another time-zone, so he can fix next evening except, you know, forget it. I'm checking out early. Plenty of hotels around here.

Small hotel/guesthouse with terrible receptionist.
We had to change room and pay for the two first nights in that room. Then, we had to pay again for the other room which didn´t have a double bed.
Neither the breakfast nor two small bottles of drinking water a day were included and no one gave us that informtion during check-in. (Every hotel or guesthouse that we stayed at in Karon Beach offered two bottles of free drinking water a day except from Diver Inn.)
We felt so bad about this whole experience that we just wanted to get out of there so we paid for all three nights but only stayed for two. Never again!

Freddi_Diversinn, Owner at Divers Inn, responded to this review, August 29, 2011
Divers Inn enjoys about 70% return customers thanks to the friendly staff. This couple asked for a standard room for a few days but did not confirm their booking. Arriving to the hotel they asked for something cheaper the a standard room.
It is our policy to sell single nights in rooms canceled the same day at a cheaper rate. These can be booked only for 1 day at a time. The couple preferred a cheaper rate and where informed that they might have to change rooms since they wanted to stay for 3 nights. They where able to stay 2 nights in a standard room at a cheaper rate , the 3:rd night this room was not available because it was booked at full rate. We offered another room and the couple moved here. They changed room but later asked for another room because they wanted double bed. We where fully booked and could not meet their request.

Booking 3 nights in a standard room at standard rate would have been possible but they did not want it.

A little bit difficult to find but what a find! This place is really close to the beach sourrounded by small and inexpensive local restaurants. We booked the cheep standard rooms but got a free upgrade for a few days. Seaview rooms with nice bamboo furniture, it really feels Thai. The breakfast was great and total cost of living a bargin. Evrybody is very friendly, staff and guests. Talking to the other guests we soon realized that most peopel was staying over and over again, now we know why, its like family.
