Reviewed October 12, 2009

Very clean rooms. Staff friendly and understand enough english to be able to help you out with anything you need. Shops, markets all close by within walking distance. Beach across the road. Quiet hotel with no children running around which was relaxing in the pool area. Breakfast was yummy! No complaints.

Got a nice center pool access room but at a high price, THB 4500 per nite ! which we then realise could get a bigger room offer at other hotels. Location is great as beach is directly opp to this hotel, consider beach front as there is a road between all hotels and beach, 5 mins walk only. Restaurants and massage shops are round the corner.

We just arrived form Phuket. We stayed in Karon for 3nights and enjoyed every bit of it. However, next time I would prefer to stay in Patong as it's way livelier. At any rate, this hotel is quite fine esp if you're in a budget. The room is spacious and the washroom is beautiful as well. The resort got a huge pool and nice breakfast selection. The egg station was really good too. The staff are very amiable as well. What I didn't like in this hotel is the night time. It's really like a ghost town. It would have been nice if the poolbar plays lively music to make it more inviting. There are lots of restaurants and shops nearby so I must say that it's in a good location but the dreadful construction happening in front of this resort is very annoying. It destroys the good scenery of the beach just infront of the hotel. We didn't swim in the beach though as the waves were hostile for nonswimmers like my family. It's a good thing that it was not raining so we manage to go on a tour to 5 islands via speed boat. My 7year old daughter vomited while journeying to the islands so I suppose that the cruiser would work better for young children so that they can't feel the strong current of the sea.

There's one more thing that I did not get from this hotel..taxi booking for our departure. I really did not know that you must book pre-hand so that you can get a service. I was thinking that the cabs are just like here in Singapore wherein you stand in one corner and you signal to get one. At 730am we asked the front desk to get us a cab but she said that she can help us so we need to get our own cab. As a result, we almost missed our flight and the Centara cab driver asked us to pay 1000TB..What can we do. We really did not have a choice.

My husband and I along with a couple of friends stayed here for 10 nights. Welcomed with a cold towel and drink on check-in. We had a pool side room which was huge compared to some places I have stayed. It also has a large bathroom with separate shower and bath. Having direct access to the pool was fantastic and I will look for this feature in other hotels in the future.
There is a huge amount of TV channels which included the Sci Fi Channel. Breakfast is plentiful with a good variety of dishes. The egg station will give you eggs in whatever your preference.
The hotel is very clean and we found the staff very helpful and friendly although their English could be improved. They where even happy to drive me to the hospital at 4.00am with a bad case of viral gastro. (not from the food)
The gym is very small but has all you need, just wish they would leave on the air-conditioning so the room stayed cold.
We loved our stay in this very clean, friendly hotel which due to it size you are never battling crowds for anything.
We had a 8.00pm flight and they where very happy to provide a late checkout of 4.00pm without charge.
