We stayed here for one week and got a great rate (quoted 1,600 baht and as we walked away to find somewhere else, the manager came out and said she would go down to 800 baht a night including breakfast (about £6.50/£7- was low season though)
It is a lovely hotel and convenient location but the staff do not speak very good english at all and was the worst we came across. Even basic things such as 'is there a doctor nearby?' they couldnt understand or give us an answer to. Although the staff are very friendly and pleasant it is a bit of downfall.
Breakfast wasnt all that nice - not worth getting up for anyway, plus the restaurant is located right next to the road - which is ok for people watching but pretty loud.
The swimming pool is loacted in the roof and is a lovely area to chill out in, complete with mostly manned pool bar. The young guy who was working there was very determined and friendly but again english quite poor.
Rooms are spacious and mainly nicely decorated. Found it strange that they would change bedding everyday if you wanted them to, but the bathroom wouldnt even get wiped down.
Located near to, what we thought was karon town (full of markets, massage places, and pubs) but on the last day we discovered somewhere called 'Karon Plaza' which was about 15 min walk away - walking along the beach front. Although behind the hotel you can access the main markets and pubs etc and this was fine for the week we stayed. Wat Chalong temple is nearby as is 'The Big Buddha', I think about about half hour/hour driving.
Karon on the whole alright, but probably not great for families, unless you are in more of resort. I didnt think there was a lot to do for families. Although close to the beach which we read as 'clean to swim in'. also across the road from a nice large lake. Probably good to visit for a couple of nights.
