“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

Wound up staying @ Ramada Phuket for 5 nights after our reservation with Tingo for another
hotel got lost....the staff @ the Ramada were more than accomodating and helpful. The breakfast buffet was only good (not great) but our stay was overall enjoyable....the only thing was the lock
on our sliding door never really locked (who would have thought it opens on both sides!) and the
staff did try to fix it. English was not the primary language, but the staff did try.
Location is great right across street from beach.....enjoyed our stay but doubt that we'll go back
to Karon....too many tourists from Russia.

Room Tip: Try not to stay in #106....nice pool access but can hear people going up and down stairs during the...

Great location across from my favorite part of Karon Beach and next to the main road that runs up to Patong, this is worth a look. Since the Tsunami they've fixed it up but it looks like temporary measures, with the main walkways to the rooms and around the pool being wooden floors that are breaking down in spots. The TV had no English channels and in both rooms (we had two) the TVs had to be re-set by a staff member. Had to call three times over two days to get that guy to come up. Big pillows that raised your neck too high. Breakfast was poor and big chinese tour buses seemed to be the mainstay for the owners. Bathrooms small - wife didn't like that. Pool small. As mentioned in another review, like most places in Thailand beach resorts, and due to the country's poor public education system due to decades of military and chinese-thai elite rule that cares little for the majority, there is a shortage of staff who can speak english so they hire Philippines' migrant workers.

Room Tip: There's a pharmacy on the corner and a minimart - this is at the main intersection (roundabout...

I have stayed in 7 different hotels in Karon Beach, Phuket. No need to look further, I don't go for the huge resort hotels because they don't have a warm feeling and staff find it hard to remember you, so I find smaller hotels that do this for me. Ramada is one of those hotels, not small by any means yet far from the big ones. This hotel is beautiful, from the first impressions of the entry and atrium through to the view of the central pool, turn around and your looking straight onto the beach.
Great location as well, across the road to the beach, security stop traffic and there is a boardwalk to the sand, i think it's the best beach in Phuket, not crowded and very few hawkers to annoy you with selling items. Around the corner you have Patak Rd, where you will find great restaurants and some bars to enjoy your time in tropical Phuket. The hotel has a very good restaurant as well, although you save some cash by walking to the strip. Breakfast is beautiful and is open late enough to still get a good sleep in and not miss out.
I will be staying here again, in fact I have booked my wedding here at their roof top garden for next year, recommending all our guests stay here, and for this the General manager has given us some great rates to entice all to do so. You won't regret booking this place!

Room Tip: We stayed in a superior premium room and found it great, bath tub in the bathroom is always good to...

The place itself is fairly well maintained and tidy, staff pretty helpful and friendly, but its location is apparently pretty far away (that is not in a walking distance) from anything interesting except the beach.

My wife and I enjoyed this hotel. We found the rooms clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good. We enjoyed the pool with the swim up bar and found it easy to relax by it. The staff was friendly and helpful. I'd especially like to thank Aor who works at the front desk. She went out of her way to make our experience enjoyable. She check us in and was extremely friendly and helpful. After we check out (Our flight wasn't till 2:00 am), they stored our bags for us, letting us lounge around the pool all day. When it came time to head to the airport, Aor called us a cab, gathered our bags and let us use the business centre to check-in to our flights, check emails, and sit in A/C till our cab arrived. Thanks again Aor!
