“Directly on the beach in Karon.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

After two nights at a hotel full of russians I had enoght. I went for a walk, and found this nice and cosy hotel on the beach.
It is a small hotel and a very quiet place. The staff was nice and helpful.
Every evening they served refreshment, fruit, cake, coffe, lemonade by the pool.
It is a little too expencive I think, but it lays on the beach, so I think thats why.

Room Tip: I wood choose a room at 2. or 3. floor Not at groundfloor.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

We stayed here for six nights during the off season. Would have been longer but there rates doubled from 1st November. Not many people staying in the off season had resulted in rooms being a bit musty. Air conditions didn't work but this was promptly fixed. Rooms are small but clean. Bathroom is good with separate shower. Hotel is in the form of a U with a small pool in the middle. Not much space between the pool and the rooms. Staff friendly and helpful. Situation is great, there is only a track separating it from a great swimming beach. Plenty of cheap lounge chairs and food vendors on the beach. Will be staying here again.

Room Tip: Take an upstairs room. Downstairs have little privacy and are only a couple of metres from the pool.

Great little quiet hotel, off the beaten path. Perfect for families and couples. We went during low season, so room had not been used in a while. Best part of room is the air conditioning and the ceiling fan! Loved it on hot nights!

we stayed at this hotel for 3 days and had an excellent time. the beach is right next door, it's beautiful, clean and not crowded. rooms are a little small but clean and well furnished. staff is polite and helpful. the charge for pick up and drop taxi was less than what was quoted by other taxi services on the net or at prepaid stand at airport. free wi fi connection was good. breakfast was a bit repetitive though but it had ample choice and served by smiling staff.

Room Tip: rooms on first and second floor would allow more privacy from people lounging around the pool. thoug...

The service was great. The rooms were spaceious, modern and clean. The free internett had limited range, so there were a couple of areas we didn't have access to the internett, but this was a minor problem. Because of the waterchannel (or "river" if you like) on the backside of the hotell there were alot of mosquitos and other insects that gives a good bite, so remember buying insect repellent. We had to change rooms because of the bugs, and after moving up to the third floor, we noticed little of this. The waterchannel isn't a pretty sight, but this didn't bother us, being most of the time on the beach in front and around the pool. The beds are quite hard, but we have the same experince from other hotels around in Thailand.
Very little noise, except from the loud tuk-tuk's with big stereos going to and from patong beach on the main road, maybe 60 meters away.

This is a great little hotel hidden on the North end of Karon Beach in Phuket. It is about 30 seconds to the beach (which is much quieter than Patong Beach). The hotel is clean and also has a great pool. Each morning I woke up and sat on our room's patio and checked my email and Skyped with friends with a beautiful view of the ocean. There were a few more creepy crawlers in the room than I would have liked, but we were on the ground floor so you'd find that anywhere in Thailand. The staff was nice and helpful and the rates were really reasonable. I actually felt like we got a great deal considering the location. Next time we come back to Phuket I want to come right back here!

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms have nice patios but the upper floor rooms have better views of the ocean.

I stayed here with my boyfriend for 4 nts and we had a great time. The staff are lovely and they make a great breakfast! The beach is just across from the hotel but we preferred to swim in the pool or lay on one of the sunbeds. The room we stayed in had good aircon, powerful shower and comfy beds. Plus the fridge was good to store a few beers to enjoy on the balcony in the evening.

Karon Beach is a little mellower than Patong so a great town to stay in. Ask the staff for recommendations for places to eat and they will tell u exactly where u can get a great meal.

If we come back to Phuket we'll def return to In on the beach!
