Fine place on a fine beach. Hilton has spacious rooms with thoughtful layout. We had a great view of sunset over the Andaman Sea. Our room had a step which was lighted at night. We had a big glass desk which was useful. When the staff sensed that I had trouble using an optical mouse on glass, they left me a mousepad.
Several restaurants on site offer a variety of foods. If Sails restaurant has a buffet, it means a tour bus is dining. Otherwise, you can order off the menu. Don't miss the little ice cream place on the ground floor.
The beach is all public and filled with deckchair and parachute ride vendors. A crossing guard will across the road. Karon Beach is beautiful and sandy. There are plenty of freshwater pools at the hotel.
The hotel is about an hour south of the airport. I strongly recommend that you e-mail the hotel to arrange a car for transport both ways. Price is comparable to a taxi, and the hotel car comes with water bottles and a cool towel. You meet your driver outside the building on the left.
