We really liked this place. One thing that we realized in :huket is that location is everything. We stayed at a beautiful place for the first few days, but this place was far from everything, so we felt prisoners after a few days. Renting a moped was the only option. The Village is only a 3 minute walk to the beach and is in the the town of Karon, so it is optimally located. There are things going in Karon but it is not as crazy as Patong or Kata, yet it is very close to these towns.
The pluses: the facilities are beautiful, the rooms are large, very well kept and very nice. The common areas are also well kept and the pool is great.
The minuses: very few of the hotel staff speak English. They are very pleasant, but they just smile back to you and say 10 minutes. I got the impression that the barman at the pool bar had recently passed away because I never saw him/her. Finally, the taxi service I got from the hotel following their recommendation got us to the airport right on time. On time for our scheduled departure, so we had to rebook.
All in all, very good place, I would definitely stay there again.
