Not as clean as one could expect, breakfast rather poor, the staff friendly but skills in english were pretty poor. Good location and pretty good pool area with a small garden. Do not expect amazing balcony views.

Stayed at Whale resort for 2 nights. The place is average. The reception staff is rude when you have any questions, they just gave me blank look when i asked about wifi not working on my phone. Average hotel.

This is by far one of the worst hotels I've stayed in!! If you have ANY other options I recommend that you find a different hotel! The staff is rude and don't know the concept of service. No one in the entire hotel speaks more than four words of english! It is impossible to ask any questions, everything from breakfast...

Cheap, cheerful and in a good location. Bathroom was clean and functional and the bed was comfy. Very close to local bars and restaurants. 15 - 20 drive to the Big Buddha. Staff friendly and even allowed us to use computer in the office because we lost our phones.

The room itself was ok but the housekeeping was terrible. No tea/coffee, no mini bar although there is a sign about the mini bar being at market prices, no soap. Had to scrub...

First of all, they would not allow us to check in early as we requested in advance, so we had to walk round Karon in the rain for three hours. The breakfast was dreadful enough without the swarms of wasps and flies all over the place...mainly the jam. To top things off, my fiancee had her ATM card stolen from...
