So at the time we check-in we had no other option to paid in advance and cash! Running out of cash myself because I am working not far from the place my girl friend so paid the bill! Usualy you paid at the check out but?!..
Looking at the room, the mosquitos door protection was completely broken and falling apart so we ask for another room if possible?!..
At this time the owner show up and... 'here I make the rules! I can't accept you so you have to cancel and leave'!!..
So we cancelled but the owner refused to give the cash back to my girl friend!!..
It is an act of fraud, total disloyalty and I though that potential futur customers should know that before booking this place!

We booked Karon Cliff for our honeymoon and at the first arrival, we were told to pay upfront for our hotel room, OK we did that, think we were charged about 45 USD/night. (Now I feel that is expensive!)

We requested for hotel pick up from them, which they charged 800 baht, what a rip off! Realised later that it would only cost about 500 baht via metered taxi to that place.

Disappointment crept in when I first looked at our room, a few broken flour tiles, rusty sinks and 1/3 "seaview".

The restaurant was outdoors and while we were eating, there were at least 20 geckos walking above you on the ceiling. I have to constantly look up and was very anxious.
At least three geckos appeared in our room which were at least 4 inches long!

The owner, Peter, was friendish, meaning, he is friendly to you but don't really want to be your friend nor was he interested in your wellbeing.
The bed was super hard, we felt springs on our back, we told Peter about it and he offered to put more mattress covers on it but it never happened. (He actually did ask how is our stay which was why we told him that.)

His restaurant staffs were great and the cleaning ladies were nice too. They saved the ratings a star more.

Internet was provided at the restaurant with one free terminal.

The BBQ buffet on sunday night was good for our taste.
Breakfast is provided, but it is not buffet style. Two eggs, ham, low quality white bread, tea/coffee, fruits.

You have to walk down a bit to get to the beach and 10 minutes to walk to main beach. At night it is VERY inconvenient.

We will not return.

We had asked for a double bed and what we got was two singles joined together, they were different heights and totally unsleepable.
For what we paid for, we were expecting something better. We had stayed in a lot better for a lot less.
We would not stay here again.

What do you need in way of accomodation???
HERE is the answer a peaceful-tranquil resort set on the slopes of Karon beach, picture book views of the ocean- crystal clear water-snack tents-lounge chairs situated below, if you choose to walk into karon central tide willing- is an easy 10min walk along the beach returning via Tuk Tuk- Motor-bike or the hotels friendly taxi service.
Now the important chapter--the resort is well run- friendly smiling staff -owner an absolute gem nothing is too much trouble to organise with minimal fuss.Food excellent-breakfast worth waking for we enjoyed the view as the beach came to life each day.Location between Karon and Patong everywhere is accesible. The best part of the day returning to Karon Cliff for that relax and recharge without NOISE.Would we stay there again YES planning now as I write.

It was fine, the views are nice and the beach below is nice. It's much quieter than anything in Patong or any of the craziness of Phuket. Off the beaten path and very quiet. Don't bother if you don't have a car of motorcycle. The road it is on does not get taxis or tuk tuks, so you would be stranded. I had a car, so it was perfect. Parking was available and it was nice to be away from it all.

Service:
- We had requested an airport pickup but received no confirmation from the hotel that they'd be there. As we were exiting Phuket airport, we caught glimpse of a man with a sign of our names. Oh lucky! It was Peter, the owner. We told him we thought they weren't coming as they didn't respond regarding our pick-up request and were told the girl who handles that is very good.

- Service when we got there was ok. We were served drinks and given a cold towel on arrival which was a nice touch.

- The bar staff were friendly

Room and the place in general:
- We had to pay up-front which I felt uncomfortable about. When we opened the door to our room, we felt completely ripped off. The room was extremely basic. Had we thought we were paying for what it was, it would have been fine, but our expectations (based on the photos that were up on the website at the time), and the description of the place being both 'contemporary' and 'boutique' we were expecting something completely different. It was pretty upsetting. If they required pay upon checkout, we would have checked out

- No shower curtain/room divider in the bathroom so the water would go everywhere (i.e. all over the toilet and toilet paper). There was also no holder for the shower so you had to manoeuvre around and wash yourself while holding the shower head

- Nowhere decent to store clothes/travel items. There was the concrete looking thing with a curtain attached and no coat hangers so we were living out of our bags (see photos).

- Ripped towels and bed sheets, broken bed-side drawer, a mysterious door in the room that sounded as though it led into the next room (as we could hear the people next door), room surfaces were generally dirty

- The place and our room is particular was very run down (see photos). Even Peter, the owner, made a comment that the place "Wasn't anything special" but was close to the beach. A comment like that coming from the owner has got to say something!

- We paid THB$12,400.00 (AUD$416) for 4 nights in a Deluxe Room. Breakfast was very basic but an ok start to get you going for the day. We made the mistake of trying the 'all you can eat bbq buffet' on a Sunday night. Nothing seemed to be cooked properly - we had meat patties that were half cooked through and completely pink/red in the middle, and an almost raw baked potato

- Our 'double bed' was really two single beds pushed together. The mattresses were really hard and stiff which made sleeping uncomfortable. We didn't have a good night's sleep the whole time we were there (something which is important if you're travelling around all day and night!)

Location:
This was the only good thing about the place. It was close to the beach and a 10-15 minute walk on the beach to the centre of Karon

Good:
Location and proximity to the centre of Karon and the view from our room

The cons:
- Everything else. Would definitely not recommend staying here unless you are looking for something very basic.
