Good for Families

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in July with two children aged 5 and 6 and found it to be quite accommodating. The staff was helpful and the facilities are obviously geared towards families and children. The restaurant was acceptable, but better food at better prices was just down the hill by the beach. All the staff seemed to really enjoy the kids and made it a point to keep them involved. Location is convenient for the price; a short free tuk tuk ride to the bottom of the hill and there is everything you need. The concierge helped arrange a day trip and likely saved me some money. Recommended, especially if you have kids and don't want to break the bank.

Lovely hotel

We stayed in Superior rooms (includes breakfast and dinner) part of the resort which overlooks one of the 2 pools. We asked for our second room with children to be close to ours ahead of arrival and we provided rooms with interconnecting doors so very pleased with that. Rooms are spacious with free bottled water provided daily and a well stocked mini bar. Pool towels as well as bath towels provided daily if required. Could not understand why they instal a cloth blind in the bath for the frosted window looking into the bedroom. Bath surround overflows and we had to use towels to stem the downpour onto the floor daily. Spacious cupboard space with safe, ironing board + iron and hair dryer provided so no need to bring your own. One tip - our adapters did not work so we bought a couple for around £3 from the 7eleven down the road. 2 queen beds so great to lounge around. Breakfast was a tad early for our liking 6.30 to 10am but good range. Dinner tended to be a bit repetitive at times (especially if vegetarians) although decent range. Lots of fresh fruit and salads available. Great surrounding with lots of foliage and despite monsoon season, didn't affect us at all. Karon beach is much better that Patong beach, clean sand, wide beach and plenty of sunbeds but be warned the sun is misleading and got burnt for the first time ever. Understand now what reviewers meant by the hill. Challenge for any age but tuk tuk service provided if required. Great bus service into Patong daily which is free. Recommend Patong for any shopping as limited in karon. Staff are very helpful. Did one tour to Phi Phi islands which felt was done on a shoestring budget by the company as sometimes did not get off the boat or had limited time for activities. Mr Kriang was most helpful and friendly. We forgot we had booked for the bus to Patong and they still came to find us to check if we were going. Although live singer daily no other forms of entertainment so difficult to keep a 22 and 15 yr old occupied. Games room closes too early. Hotel would really benefit from provided some form of entertainment as very dead in the evenings and other than bars and restaurants, not a lot else happening in karon.

No entertainment in the hotel so either need to visit bars outside which still quiet in comparison or go to Patong. Also our Uk adapters did not work but great universal ones available from the 7Eleven down the road

Great place for relaxation

The place was really nice, and the pools there were quite clean. It's well-located right beside the Karon Beach.

A perfect hotel!!

We had a wonderful stay at The Horizon Karon Beach resort. Lovely hotel with great amenities (specially if you stay at the Priviledge club). The rooms were extremely spacious, the staff were all very friendly, the location was great in between Karon and Kata (although the hotel is on top of a hill so bear this in mind), We will definately be going back in a few years!!! :)

Relaxing family holidays

Really kind staff, good food (quality for price), beautiful gardens and swimming pools, near lots of shops, with a tuktuk service to get down the hill (no effort requested!) and shuttle to patong! Great holidays for reasonable price...
