My boyfriend and I booked Karona for 5 nights in mid May based on the good reviews we read but was disappointed with our stay. We were confirmed a high floor pool view deluxe but was given a low floor pool view deluxe upon arrival but was upgraded to a high floor sea view deluxe when we complained. Not a good deal cos the room upstairs was renovating and there were major construction works from opposite development. It was very unpleasant and noisy. They should not have given us such an unpleasant room, it was very unprofessional.
The hotel looks old, pool looks dirty and the room was spacious but old looking too. There was no closet/ wardrobe in the room and we have to make do with a small drawer. Breakfast was mediocre, probably due to the small number of guests and hence not much variety.
We checked a few hotels nearby Karon Seas, South Sea Karon and the rooms were much better than Karona and at the same rate. I would suggest to try these hotels rather than Karona. Karona however have excellent location, beach in front and Kata village just behind.
