Karon Tropics provides an extremely relaxed "tropical" atmosphere where Rocky and his staff will make you feel more like family. Ideally located across from Karon Temple (Wat Suwan Kirikhet) and a very short walk to Karon Beach, one of the nicest ocean beaches in Phuket. Karon Tropics Guesthouse provides convenient access to all of the restaurants and bars in Karon and Kata, without being right in the middle of it. It is also only a short Tuk Tuk ride to the busier more "touristy" Patong Beach area where you go to shop during the day or hit the bigger clubs and bars at night. During the day, Karon Tropics is a great place to sit out front on the patio, read a book, have a drink, or just enjoy great conversation with the staff or other guests. At night it's a great place to have a drink, and play some pool while listening to great music and enjoying great company. Regardless, Rocky always makes sure that his guests are happy and having a good time. Rocky and the staff at Karon Tropics were also extremely helpful providing advice on everything from the best places to visit, and those to avoid, as well as how, when, and where to get the best deals and have a great time. My girlfriend and I had a phenomenal time at Karon Tropics and are already planning a return trip.

Room Tip: The rooms in the front have the best view, but can get a little noisy. If you need quiet, just ask f...

I highly recommend the Tropics, particularly for the price. My room had a queen size bed and was clean, large, and had a great A/C. I had a private balcony which was nice, although it overlooked a fairly busy street where some noise came in the morning but nothing overbearing - ear plugs would have been good but not necessary. the location is great as karon beach is an easy 6 minute walk while passing eateries and marts along the way. Rocky and his bartender Koy treated me well with very cold beers at competitive prices. The free internet works great in the common area and the rooms . Complimentary water is also a big plus. There is also a pool table to help the socializing. A twice weekly night market is right across the street. The restaurant was closed since I visited in the low season. All in all a friendly atmosphere that has a lot going for it. Thanks for the hospitality Rocky and Koy! I hope to see you soon.

Karon tropics is great! Super friendly and helpful staff. The owner Rocky is knowledgable on the local dive scene. The crew are great and will cater to your every need. Rooms are tidy, big beds and clean. Feels like a home away from home. Will visit again for sure.

The friendliest staff you will ever meet, kindness and help is second nature. I was very impressed with the views the hotel offered and the hotels overall cleanliness. ( I stayed in some shanty places). This place was like you'd expect a hotel to be and for the price right up from the beach you cant go wrong. My family was treated with respect and first class service, with none of the shy antics we recieved at other hotels on our stay 5 *****s to you Karon Tropics Guesthouse.

My family and I Thank you Karon Tropics I hope someday soon we will meet again.

Your friend always Wade.

Room Tip: Just ask everyone was friendly.
