Stayed at Karona Resort in March 2006 for around a week, coming to Phuket after a few days in Bangkok.
While there is nothing particularly wrong with the resort, you could certainly find much more luxurious surroundings in Phuket - probably for similar money.
The resort had a very 'motel' feel to it, with a long treck up concrete stairs to get to your room. There were many families with young children when we were there, and they seemed pretty happy with the accommodation.
If you're after a bit of luxury, look further than Karona. But if you're a family that needs a bit of space and would make good use of the outdoor pools, perhaps give Karona a shot.More
