we stayed here for our honeymoon from 20th feb 2014 til 1st march 2014, from arrival we were met with extremely friendly and helpful staff, i had a problem with my leg and when we checked in they had upgraded us free of charge to a swim up room which was absolutley wonderful. All the staff from the young girl who cooked your eggs in the morning to the chambermaid and the superb bar staff were the most friendly helpful people and we will definatley be making a return visit

My wife, two grown up daughters, sister, partner (Up from Australia) and I stayed here for ten nights at the beginning of February. Convenently located for the beach, Karon town centre and Patong, ten minute tut-tut ride around the coast. Large well appointed rooms with very efficient air conditioning. Very good and varied breakfast buffet. Friendly and helpful staff in all departments. Happy hour between four and six o'clock with excellent half price cocktails. Some noise for the road outside the hotel but, with the help of Rod Stewart and Adele playing on the pool bar stereo this wasn't over bearing. Overall an excellent value for money hotel that I would happily return too.

The front hotel is very nice, friendly staff, clean rooms, nice pool and good. Great air conditioning. Only downside is your limited to 1 hour free wifi per day per room, you could buy Wifi for 200baht for 24 hours. Apart from that was a lovely hotel.

We stayed here for our honeymoon and had higher expectations. The first thing I noticed when I walked in was the finger prints on the sliding door indicating it was not cleaned properly. I then went into the bathroom and noticed that it had even cleaned but by out Australian standees was still quite filthy (toilet and shower).
However the staff we loverly and helpful and the pool was great and the gardens are beautiful. The bed was very hard and we had to ask for something to make it softer which they did very promptly. Breakfast was disjoin ting, a little bland not our cup of tea but the fruit is loverly. They also had a fantastic Thai buffet one Monday night which was really good. This pace has the potential to be so much better however the rooms need a serious upgrade!

My husband and I stayed here in mid january. We are very friendly aussies but didn't find the hotel guests very friendly though. The staff were very friendly and the pool bar was nice and not too busy. They also have a couple of basketball hoops to throw balls into for fun.

It's in a good location only down the road from the main part of town but also close to the beach.. Our room was a pool access room which was fantastic and had a bit of privacy with very well manicured gardens around.

Lots of stray dogs around the place which is pretty sad as I don't think there is an animal welfare in the area,.

The breakfast was definately not our cup of tea. Nothing really appealing there at all.

A very nice hotel too look at with security at the front.

Front Village is very nice hotel and stuff is usually very helpful and friendly. Since this is not very big hotel, they get to know you and really make you feel like home. Our room was spacious, tidy and cleaned daily. There wasn't any problem at all during our 2 week stay.

Breakfast isn't anything special, but there is everything you need. Couple of warm options, and then fruits, vegetables, breads, omelettes... Coffee and tea is served to you which is nice. Pool is good as well, poolbar is handy and there is happy hour every day (buy 1 get 1 free). There is plenty of sunbeds and garden is pretty too. We would definitely recommend this hotel, it's a value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool got sunshine nearly all day, and you can also view sunset there on your balcon...

I booked this hotel for my husband and myself for a relaxing 9 days following a busier atmosphere in Patong.
The staff in this hotel were some of the best I have ever encountered while on holidays.
All requests were attended quickly and resolved without any fuss and with a smile.
The only complaint I have is that the bathrooms are due for an update the shower over the
bath is a pain. Breakfast is great a wide variety of foods for all tastes.
From the hotel it is only a short walk to the beach and the main town centre.
I will definitely stay again in the future.

Room Tip: I had a pool access room and loved it. Room 113
