“A nice stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

We went on a vacation in June 2013 after a long time, and phuket can rightly be called a piece of heaven... I fell in love with the place :)

We stayed at Sugar palm resort at Karon beach, not a very great resort to boast about but decent with its offerings. We booked a pool access room and it was a relaxing stay. Only problem with the poo; was the water being too salty, will be great if resort can do something about it. A pretty decent place with a wonderful location, just a walk away from Karon beach.

Room Tip: Pool Access are best

My room (deluxe pool view) was big enough with a private terrace straight to the pool. And the pool was not so deep and very clean. In green season there were no too many guests around so I never felt myself out of privacy.
Furniture was easy, but I love this style. Maybe my bathroom was little bit dark, but it didn’t worry me.
Cleaning was on the highest level.
Free minibar(with Singha, Cola and Still water) came as a nice surprise for me.
Wi-Fi was ok, comparing with other places I’ve been in Thailand. Moreover there is a real Mac in the room so it is easy to check a mail or look up maps or so.

Breakfast was average – just couple of main courses (quite similar every day) bread and 2 kinds of fresh fruits, so it doesn’t worth to pay any extras for it.

Well, I can strictly recommend this hotel for young travelers.

The rooms are big, clean, and good location. Its walking distance to shops, restaurant and the lovely beach..about 5 minutes walk.

B'fast was everage as most of the items were repeated.

We were supposed to stay at Malai house but due to the renovation we was upgraded to sugar palm with a pool view, which was great.

Would be back again and strongly recomend this lovely and beautiful place. Staff were always there to help and ready to serve.

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
