Firstly we were really impressed with the Apple Mini Mac in our room, you can use itunes and search the internet on the TV.
The rooms were clean and fairly modern for the price. However, the tiling looks like it was done by a 10 year old.
We had a pool access room, which was really awesome but our room was missing the privacy curtains. We had to have the night curtains pulled all day for privacy from the swimmers and sunbathers.
We didn't have breakfast at the hotel but at the Karon Cafe around the corner, which was a third of the price and the food just as good.
Location was really good, only a short walk to the beach and shops.
Overall I recommend this hotel to the budget conscious, it is excellent value for money.

The hotel is much better than I expected. Not to mention its proximity to Karon beach and the restaurants along the road, the hotel room is bigger than I expected.

The room is cozy and clean, with stable free wifi network, the swimming pool is large and comfortable for swimming. The staff is nice and helpful.

Strongly recommended if you are looking for a cheap and comfortable stay in Karon.

very happy with sugar palm karon, we stayed a week there and could not at all find a fault, our first room the aircon was not working so we were moved straight away, mini bar is similiar pricing to the closest shop in karon, there are books, dvds, frisbees to hire for no cost, free internet and dvd players in rooms the pool is well maintained and althought there is a 8pm curfew as long as you keep quiet the hotel does not mind.
would definatly stay there again

Room Tip: pool rooms look great but not very private, with people splashing outside your door, 4th floor you c...

We loved our gateway to Phuket specially because of this cozy little resort which is not so little yet the perfect amount to make you feel warm and at ease! They have all the facilities that you need and the art and decoration everywhere is pleasing. The best part of the ambiance are the bathrooms, if I may say so. You'll know what I'm talking about when you go experience! Best for value.

If u want a 5-star hotel or a European 4-star hotel, this is not.
This is a very good 3 star hotel - large clean room. The bathroom is larger than the one i got at home. The bed is large and comfortable. The room is cleaned and made-up every day. I will stay here again if i return to Karon beach.

Stayed here for 5 days while traveling round Thailand.Found a block style hotel,superbly clean with a great long pool and abt a 2 min walk to a Karon beach which is superb.Few people compared to the rows of sun loungers and thousands of people on Pat Tong.ROund the corner from s small row of cheap eateries,bars and massage parlours.Definitely not as seedy as other areas.One amazing restaurant behind it with its own lagoon.Also better than the claustrophic Sugar Palm i Kata.Superb value for the price,the rooms are modern,clean and very comfy.No complaints over anything.Outside the hotel car park are some small travel and clothes shops,also 2 small chilled out bars.For the price, i havent found anything better.Enjoy it and enjoy Thailand,do the island trips,all worth it.

Room Tip: acess the pool directly from pool rooms.
