Baan Karon View Phuket

We were disapointed when we arrived. Big 2 bedroom apt, but it looks so shabby. On the web it said with restaurant and 24 h reseption. Not true! Only breakfast that was not very good. Very little space around the pool. Close to Karon with restaurants and the beach. I would not stay here again!

We stayed in one of the Villas at Karon Views last December, very nice, staff at breakfast fantastic although breakfast options limited. The Villa we had was ideal for us, 2 Adults and two older teenages. Lots of room, Big TV and kitchen area, and direct access to a pool no boday else used, fairly quiet location, not to big to have people everywhere. Overall I would have stayed there again and recommended this to others but, after leaving and arriving at the airport one of our children noticed he had left his i-pod in the bedroom draw along with a quantity of Malaysian Ringitt.

We called imediately from the Airport and asked if they could send the i-pod to Australia with the money left behind, which they confirmed after locating the i-pod. After a number of e-mails and several call from Australia the i-pod still has not been received.

Unfortunately this has left a bitter taste in our mouth.

We stayed in a mini-suite at Baan Karon View for two weeks and enjoyed our stay here. The location is excellent - a quiet corner of Karon but less than 10 minutes walk to Karon Centre and the best parts of Karon Beach. The property itself is nice, despite a few funny design items - such as having to duck your head to walk through a low-ceiling service corridor to get to the pool (depending on which building you stay in). Staff are very friendly. The suite itself was comfortable enough, but would be better if it had screens on the windows (quite a lot of mosquitos around) and a second air conditioner in the living room (only one, is in bedroom). The kitchen in the mini-suite is quite basic, but it was enough to let us prepare a few home-cooked dinners after months of traveling and eating in restaurants. The included breakfast of the hotel is fair, but not great.

It was quite difficult to actually find the Baan Karon. Best way to describe how to get there is to take the first small road on your left as you enter Karon town, just before the small go kart track. We were a family of 4 - 2 adults and our 2 older children. Our 2 bed apartment served the purpose of our 6 night stay which was a restful stopover back to New Zealand after travelling to the UK and China. The apartment was in the first block, so perhaps a little road noise, but also handy to the pool, breakfast and the car park. The rooms very generally large with modern furniture. Open plan kitchen and living area. Large bathrooms. The apartment was diligently cleaned everyday by an army of lovely, friendly Thai ladies. Towels were changed daily and new bottled water supplied. There were only thin white towels supplied (one each) but it wasn't really an issue. We borrowed 4 towels daily from the reception which we used for the pool or took to the beach. Beds were comfy enough (more comfortable than our beds in China anyway) and were tidied or changed daily. Breakfast was fine - a bonus actually as we were very aware that we were not staying in a resort but just an apartment complex, which is what we prefer. On offer each day was fresh fruit, toast, a choice of ham, sausages, eggs cooked to your liking and a Thai noodle style option. The couple who run the cafe were friendly and welcoming. Just fine really as included in the room price. Overall, Baan Karon was just fine. It certainly is not a resort but more a holiday apartment complex. It is a 5 - 10 minute walk to the shops and beach but there is plenty to look at on the way. It is probably not suitable for young children or older people because of steps, slopes and the deep pools but is fine for a family with teenagers or just adults.

The building is tucked away in a little side street which is fine. Our room though was tucked away behind two more buidings and again the very last room, so we had walls all around. The rooms are large but a bit passed their prime. Service was minimal, breakfast very very basic and not worth getting up for. We had 2 tiny towels a day and it wasn't possible to get more. we had to dry ourselves with wet towels. The kitchen had no towels or kitchenpaper nor anything else of the basic stuff you would expect to help you cook. The so called kids pool is dangerous and made in some kind of sharp but slippery stone, completely unfit for children. Pillows were impossible to use because so hard... It was OK I guess, we stayed for 4 nights and that was more than enough.

The Villa where we stayed is well-maintained, floors, furnitures, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms are clean. It is ideal for those spending holiday in groups or families. Vicinity is quiet and peaceful, ideal for families who are avoiding crowded areas like Patong. It will take approximately 10-15mins. walk to get through to Karon Beach. Restaurants, convenience store and Forex are just nearby.
If you want to go to explore the night life in Patong, it's just 35mins. away from Karon via the local transport called Tuk-tuk or may also take a cab for about THB600 depends on your negotiation.

Their receptionist was very helpful with our needs. However, the local calls we made have been charged. We were not able to use the phone to call local numbers, have to call the reception first and ask them to dial the local number and will connect you through.

Nonetheless, our overall experience was very satisfactory.

I booked at this apartment complex as there were 5 of us, myself my husband 2 daughters 20 and 24yrs and my stepson 10yrs. We were greeted at reception and dealt with so professionally. When we were taken to the apartment we were delighted by it as it more than met our needs as a family. It was comfortable, including the beds, which can be a challenge anywhere in Thailand!
The breakfast is served in a small area next to the pool, and consisted of toast, any style eggs, bacon and some Thai dishes, juice tea and coffee. It was more than enough to start the day on.
Yes we had some power cuts, but to be honest it added to the fun and having stayed in 5* hotels as cabin crew in Thailand we had them in those hotels too, it is not uncommon in Thailand! We had housekeeping every day and always came back to nicely made beds and a clean room. The location was very good indeed, as we were about 20mins by Tuk Tuk to the busier town. At first we did not use the Tuk Tuk parked outside believing it to be more expensive, but on one day due to rain we decided to ask him the price and he was actually cheaper, and a very polite man, so use him! All in all a great and cheap place to stay.
