It was value for money perfect location. 4 minute walk to the main beach at karon.
Your best to get a room overlooking the pool as the other side overlooked another hotel.
Free bar fridge every day = coke juice beer water bottles.
Breaky great each morning caters for all tastes but same food each day.
Great pool area. Staff really nice but bit of a language barrier.
All in all very nice clean comfortable room.
Would stay there again and recommend to anyone.

I called ahead to book a room & negotiate the price as it was low season. They gave me a good price. The rooms were nice and simple and clean. A nice pool outside to relax at night. Walking distance to the Karon beach. And just outside the hotel not far away, there was a buffet dinner area with live music. Considering the discounted price they gave me, it was worth it! I really enjoyed the buffet breakfast

Upon check-in, I was told that there is an additional charge of 300 bahts per child per night, and another 1000 bahts per night additional charge for an extra cot to be put in the room. For an additional 1300 bahts per night, we have to deal with a child sleeping on the sofa with another sleeping on a disgusting mattress. I wish I can upload the photo of the mattress to show how the whole thing is covered in stains. If the trip hadn't been prepaid, I'd walks out right now and book another hotel. I paid extra for a poolside room, but the pool looks dirty with tiles falling off the edges.

We stayed in Sugar Palm Karon for 3 days in May'13. The location of hotel is superb, beach and market is at waling distance. Free wifi and free drinks are freebies. Room are really big with a nice balcony, and prices are affordable. Breakfast needs a little improvement.. otherwise the hotel is just outstanding.

Had a good time at the hotel, good location, breakfast was good to average, pool is great. Ticket all the boxes for a mid - range hotel. Close to the beach and the main strip in Karon. We stayed in the 4th floor. Tv reception was poor, but u don't go on holiday to watch tv.

WiFi and safety deposit box were both free, not like some other places.
The staff were so friendly and helpful and there was plenty of parking for our car and motor scooters.
Close to all the highlights of Karon.
I guess the best way to rate a place is whether or not you would stay there again.....just try and stop us..Well done Sugar Palm Karon :)

Room Tip: Get a pool access room. 3 steps out a sliding door and you can dive into a refreshing pool...YESSSSS...
