Reviewed October 30, 2011

Our family of five stayed at the Karon Sea Sands for 11 days in October. From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed and at home. All the staff were very friendly and made us welcome especially Vee and Nong at the pool bar.

We had interconnecting rooms (parents in one, 3 kids in the other) on the second floor overlooking the pool...you could just about reach down and touch the water. In fact you COULD touch the water if you were in a pool-access room, however none of these are interconnecting. The rooms were modern, spacious and clean. Each room has a little built-in window seat which our 8 year old chose to use as his bed every night and he was very comfortable. We had a blocked toilet one night but the staff were quick to respond and fix our problem.

Breakfast was great with lots to choose from, including an egg-station providing great omelettes. The Pool is a great size with a great bar and very clean.

The Hotel is in the perfect location. The beach is directly across the road and there is a heap of markets, restaurants, bars and massage places within a 300m radius. The Andaman Seafood was right on the corner of the entranceway to the hotel and the food was great and very cheap. The massage place out the front was also great.

You get 20mins free wi-fi per day and you can purchase 3 hours for 200 baht. If they made it free unlimited it would pretty much be a perfect hotel.

Karon Beach is a fantastic place to stay in Phuket, enough activity to keep everyone happy but without the madness of Patong. The Karon Sea Sands is the perfect location with Karon Beach and is great value for money.

We stayed in Oct 2011 and had a great time. Fantastic clean and airy rooms with great maid service, room cleaned very well every day. The pool has sunshine all day due to east-west aspect. Very nice breakfast buffet with many choices. The hotel is is two minutes walk to the beach and three minutes to the main part of town. All the staff are very helpful and courteous. Air con could be a little noisey on full power but only a minor problem. Overall an excellent hotel in a great location.

Room Tip: Pool rooms great for direct access to pool but top floor rooms give some great sunsets!!

First time stay at hotel and hopefully not last. Hotel probably better than internet would suggest.Stayed in Family Suite with 2 children and would definately recommend for families with same. Room very spacious, cleaned daily, buffet breakfast very adequate, fantastic location 150 meters to beach, walking distance to everything, staff friendly. Pool better than photos on website.

Room Tip: Stay in family suite if you have children, plenty of room.

We have been at excellent hotels in Karon and in Kata (we do very careful research before we book, using Tripadvisor and other sources - which may be the reason for us giving all of those hotels a very high rating).
Last year we stayed four weeks in Kata, but because our daughter has been stung by one of the more lethal of the jellyfish and didn't want to bathe so much in the sea, we now looked for a hotel with a larger pool.
We found Karon Sea Sands. What a gem! The pool, to start with, is long, with a jacuzzi part and a pool bar where you sit on stools in the water and can get drinks, ice cream or any food from the restaurant.
We booked a room which did NOT have direct pool access and we wanted to have it on the second floor, for less disturbance. We got exacly what we booked. And two rooms connected.
ALL staff at the hotel was very chearful, when you passed a room which was being cleaned you would get a chearful "Good Morning"! Nice.
The rooms were very good, TV with a lot of channels, and you could rent a DVD player.
WiFi was available with good reception, but it's an additional charge. You can pay per day or per week or by other options. Good reception also in the pool area.
Everything was very clean. There is a small gym with machines you can train on.
Breakfast is great. And the restaurant staff quickly learned which was our favorite table and what our preferences were for tea with and without milk.. There was an egg station which could do anything with eggs. The buffe has a quite sufficient selection of warm food, salads, cerials, fruit, juice, all very good.
In the evenings you could choose from Indian cuisine (very good) or Thai cuisine (also very good). They have an Indian buffe once per week (or was it bi-weekly?) which makes you wish you hade more room for food.. lovely.
There is a nice bar-and-cafe in the lobby, nice place to sit and cool down with an iced coffee drink.
The location is very good, near to the beach, and near to the Karon town centre. There are a couple of supermarkets near the hotel where you can buy your water bottles and snacks. If you see a pancake trolley in the street outside, buy a pancake - they were very good.
The hotel provided a minibus to get us to and from the airport. Worked without a hitch. On the way back, there was some car accident which cause the traffic to congest, but our driver did his best to find roads around the blockage.

Room Tip: There are direct pool access rooms with a gate to the pool. We chose instead rooms on the second flo...

We booked a Pool room with direct access to the pool which was well worth the extra payment. The standard of the room was excellent. The pool appeared to be well maintained and the water looked clean and we noted the staff tested the water quality early each morning. Our only comment would be that perhaps the hotel may like to consider installing a inner mesh door next to the patio door as the hotel advice is to keep the patio door closed to keep the mozzies out ( and there were plenty!).
The breakfast buffet ( included in the price of the room) was also excellent with plenty of variety.
The hotel is in an excellent location in Karon with plenty of very reasonably priced restaurants close by which appears to have affected the number of person staying to dine in the hotel restaurant. On our first night we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant and found ourselves to be the only two diners at the time. All in all a very good hotel in a great location with plenty going on in Karon but not as busy or as noisy as nearby Patong.
