“Poor value for the money”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Did not meet our expectations. Room was very small. Stains on the curtains. Shower did not work well. Glass top on the balcony table was missing. Overlooks onto a weedy field, trash, rusty barbed wire fence when walking on the main road very near the hotel.With a little extra effort could be a better place.... beach across the road is very nice. Won't return.

When we arrived at this hotel the power was out and we had to carry bags up 5 flights of stairs in the heat (so it wasn't a great start). The hotel room was nice - stayed in a two bedroom room which had a little lounge room. The only downside was the bathroom was an en suite to one of the bedrooms and made it a bit awkward for the other couple to use. The other issue with the room was the bathroom sink start leaking all over the bathroom floor and onto to electrics - it looks as if it was a case of hurried renovations gone wrong. The pool on the roof was nice - but the issue being on the first day the pool bar had no drinks in it! To our relief it was serving drinks the next day. Service at the hotel was ok but not great. The only real upsides to the hotel are it is pretty close to the beach (just across the road) and the air conditioning definitely works. Also beds were quite comfy.

Greeting was with cocktail & wet towel. Staff was really helpful. I asked to bring a table and chair, and they did it next day. Rooms are not spacious, and look empty, it's better to order grand deluxe room (1bedroom&1living room). Very nice pool is on the roof, after sunset staff switch on lightning, it seems stars shine on the bottom.

This is a good location with access to the beach and a few good restaurants.
The pool is a welcome break from the package touring beach chair drones.
The rooms are really nothing special and will appeal to the young and backpacker crowds.
Nothing special to report from this place, but my room tip is to try get a room on the left hand side of the building facing the road, the right hand side is for those homesick who want to look onto the next door building.

This is a great spot on Karon Beach. Out of the hustle and bustle but within walking distance to everything you need. Beach is very close and many restaurants a short distance away. The service at the hotel was good and staff where all helpful. Only problem was hot water was not always available. Breakfast comes with the room and was very good. We were lucky and hit the annual Women's Bech Volleyball tournament and got to see some world class competition. The beach and swimming where the best I have ever experienced. One note the hotel is new and very up to date.

We stayed here for two nights. The room was smaller than expected. Our quilt cover was put away in the cupboard, so we didn’t use it as it is clearly not clean and had a smell to it.
It stated buffet breakfast when we book, but when we arrive they told us that because it is low season, it is a la carte – we had to order the day before. It was rather chaotic on one of the mornings – the dining room is small.
There was no ambiance in the hotel and felt empty and stark. The pool was good, but needed more shade around.
Location is near restaurants and small market (mostly sold souvenir). Staff was friendly.
An ok stay overall.
