We were disappointed in our choice to stay here. There are two long pools at this hotel, which we were excited to use. The pools themselves were not kept clean. There was a a garbage bag floating in it all day the last day we were there and it needed daily cleaning of leaves and such. The pool deck tile was filthy. I never saw anyone washing it off. Old bandaids, spills and dirt stuck to it. The stair well was only cleaned once when we were there for 6 days. A huge hair ball sat on the steps until the last day it was finally gone. Spills and dirt on them as well. The room linens were clean, but furniture and wood door and trim definitely tired. The floors were not swept at cleaning so sand and grit on them. Mold in the grout in the shower. I asked maid to bleach it, but it never happened. My sons room had centipedes and earwigs. The room cleaning was hit and miss. You can hear everything said in people’s rooms as you walk by. Very flimsy doors. I liked the big sliding door that led right out to the pool from our room. The breakfast was a big variety, but not to my liking. I asked the egg cook if I could have two eggs over medium and she grudgingly cooked them. There was a plate of sunny side up ones she kept trying to get me to take. The rest of the restaurant staff were friendly though. The front desk staff was polite but not memorable. Nothing out of their way. There is only one elevator in main building.

We had a pool access room. I would highly recommend getting a pool access room (in fact that is the only room I would hire). Everything was lovely and clean and modern. Pool was beautiful. Position of hotel was not beachfront but across the road. Perfect. In my view it was in the best position on Karon Beach! It was also close to lots of restaurants and shops (with a number of 7/11s very close by) The buffet breakfast was big and lovely. My only complaint would be that the food was often a bit cold. If the food was a bit hotter it would be excellent. I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again if holidaying back at Karon. The value of this hotel was unbeatable.
