“Great place for relaxing holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Older style property, with large rooms in fabulous location. Property is exceptionally well maintained, and staff are very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much effort for them. Stayed there Nov 2012. Massage girls at front of hotel greeted us like family every day with hugs all round on our last day. Good coffee just down the road that became one of our daily visits. Highly recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Rooms with garden view on ground floor are more private

This is great place to stay. Staff were nice and very helpful. Karon beach is across the road from the resort. The surrounding area is a lot quiter than Patong so is ideal if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle . I will stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 3rd floor. It was quite and clean.

We had a wonderful stay here late Sept, early Oct 2012. It was a last minute replacement of a terrible first accommodation we booked that didn't work out.

Anyway, this place was wonderful. We booked a pool access room which was spacious and had two double beds. Plenty of space for a family with two small kids.

The kids absolutedly loved the direct access to the pool from the balcony. It is so convenient, especially when we all got a tummy bug except for our six year old. This way, she could still swim in the pool while we watched her from our room, so she didn't get bored for the couple of days we were room bound.

The breakfast had a good choice, although they should do something about the bees hanging around the drinks dispensers. It was very offputting.

It is very well located too, directly across the road from the beach, close to restaurants and markets. It's a smaller place, no kids club but really cosy and just far away from the busy road so it didn't get the noisy traffick coming through.

Would totally recommend this place.

I bought the 10 day Groupon deal for this resort and what incredible value it turned out to be.
The resort is well located away from the hustle and bustle of Patong but also close to everything you need.

Staff are very friendly and courteous and the facilities at the resort are good.

Not sure what the normal rates are here but if you see the groupon deal grab it!

We booked this room via a Groupon - so a very good deal for us! We found the rooms and service very good and enjoyed spending time both at their lovely pool and on the beach. We stayed on a ground floor - not my first choice as I prefer a higher floor - but it was a lovely room and very convenient. We especially liked the little lounger area in the room and the very comfy
back support pillow there!
I had a little problem communicating at times with staff - it took 3 times before they got my airport transportation correct - and then it was an hour early. That said, they were all very gracious in their communication and always greeted us with a smile.
The hotel is very convenient to the beach, shops, restaurants - I would highly recommend Karon Sea Sands!

Room Tip: I too would not stay 1st floor poolside - not enough privacy.

Just got back and had the best time. The staff at the resort we wonderful and so friendly. Would go back again and I don't say that often as they are so many places to see. Resort was close to everything and my friend had the best lobster dinner she had ever eaten. The beach across the road was beautiful.

Room Tip: the resort had rooms that went straight into pool next time I would get one of them Also they have r...
