Green Island Guest House
Ranked #115 of 136 Hotels in Karon
Reviewed April 4, 2013

My wife and I stayed here for 5 days in March for the last leg of our trip. The hotel is in an amazing location, a short walk to the beach and many restaurants(you just have to find the good ones). The hotel was clean and the room spacious. The staff are friendly and helpful. The owner, Tony, is a gracious host and his recommendations for restaurants were right on the money. If we return to Phuket and Karon Beach again, we would stay here.

Rooms are nice and clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. Perfect location to the best beaches on the island. Also, tons of fresh, cheap local fruit and full meals right nearby.

Right next door is a very friendly travel agent to help book tours, shuttles to the airport, etc.

Great guest house in a perfect location. Rooms are spacious, beds are huge and comfortable, shower is powerful & the tv has good English movie channels.

Location is so good because its just round the corner from all the small bars, good if you want a quiet night as there is no loud bars outside the guest house. 5 min walk to the beach. The owner, tony, couldn't be more helpful if you need any local advice.

The rooms are spacious and have everything you need, safe, tv, wireless internet, fresh towels daily and bottled water, but it is a shame the bathroom does not have a more powerful shower and is not more modern. My room (room 3 i think) was noisey with the sound of elvis playing until the very early hours of the morning for a few nights from a bar on another road.Green island is however in a very good spot with bars/restaurants very close and an easy flat 4-5 minutes walk to the lovely beach. The bar down stairs is fairly expensive, another bar I visited on a regular basis which was very close, for just about the same price I got a large bottled beer instead of a small one! I would stay again but would shop around before booking, as I think for the money other guest houses offer a better service! i.e breakfast/airport transfers/more bottled water.

I stayed here for one night, and would not have liked to have spent my whole holiday here. It is pretty dreary. The rooms are in need of some modernisation and are quite depressing. My room had air-con that leaked constantly, a shower that broke and a lingering smell of drains. While the man who worked there was really nice, the woman was so cold and unwelcoming that it actually made me uncomfortable.
This place is tolerable for a night or two at a push, but there are much nicer and cheaper (I paid 1000 baht/ night) budget places about Karon and Phuket.
