Reasonable in almost all categories. The hotel is older and it shows. The location in Karon beach is not as popular as Patong but we didn't know that. Furniture is old fashion so is lighting Location is good close, to shopping and restaurants. Our room had ants everywhere. Nice ocean view from rooms in the main building. The breakfast Buffett was excellent. The pool was very nice but the staff at the pool bar were not friendly. Food and drink prices seemed a bit high, so we usually dined outside the hotel, which was easy because there were many excellent seafood restaurants nearby. There is a weekly street market nearby the hotel on Saturdays and that was fun. The tour desk employee was not helpful and it tuned out their pricing was 30% higher than outside. We used a tour office and they were much more helpful and friendly plus they offered same tours at lower prices. If we go to Phuket again we will try Patong beach where it seemed more lively.

Excellent seafood restaurants. You pick your fresh fish and they prepare it the way you like it. If you are not into Thai spices and flavors, try the barbecue, yum.

Added the extra touches

This hotel was by far the best experience I have ever had with a hotel. The resort was designed beautifully and had enough to entertain us that we did not need to venture out until three days there. The staff went above and beyond what is expected for a hotel staff. They memorized my children's names and would greet them every morning and ask about their well bein if they noticed one was not with me or my wife. They made you feel like it was home. The cleaning staff extremely flexible, coming at odd hours to clean due to our children's nap schedule. The power went out once and within an hour it was fixed and the front desk called to confirm it was adequately repaired. The dive instructor was more than friendly and chatted with us a long even though we never went diving. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Great place in Karon area

Hotel was really nice! The best thing was that the Karon beach was just right in front of the hotel and also little shops and local restaurants were near the hotel, easy to access to the leisure and night life as well. However, my room, garden view room, was not so good, and there were bugs and aunts in my room since I just came in. I would visit there again with the upgrade room next time. After checking out, hotel let me take a shower because I had a night flight. It was very convinient and impressed!

Phuket Karon Beach

The Movenpick Resort Hotel and Spa was much larger in size than anticipated, with sprawling, very well groomed grounds. Many types of tropical trees and plants. The location to the beach was good, straight across the road was a large, long public beach which was very nice! The only small issue was having them change the room on arrival from a Hotel tower, ocean view, to a villa. However, the villa may have been larger than the room, and was very nicely located close to the beach and restaurants. I would stay there again if returning. By the way, book your tours/excursions at any of the local tourist stands located near the hotel on any of the streets. They have much better pricing than the tour desk at the hotel. Don't forget to bargain at any of the many tourist shops! We had no problem walking to any of the outside shops or restaurants in the area. Many within a 15 minute walk.

If you walk to patak road onto the side streets there are delicious cheap hole in the wall Thai restaurants. Avoid the tourist trap restaurants along the beach, not very good and expensive.

Good but not the best

I don't think it's as good as the picture shows, perhaps because of too much expectation. Overall, it's a nice hotel but could do better.

Great Location, Relaxing vacation

We stayed here for 7 nights. Check in was easy and we were welcomed with a fruit drink, cool lemongrass scented towels and flower bracelets. We also had a wonderful fruit basket in the room which was great as I tried many fruits I had never seen before in the United States. I have yet to look them up to see what they were. Our room was a garden villa and was located on the back side near the beach exit. The room(406) was nice with plenty of closet space, a safe, a mini fridge and a wonderful bathroom. The outside shower was especially refreshing. Maid service seemed to be done promptly when we put the service sign on the door, for us this was often late afternoon. They also did a turndown service with the ice bucket refilled and flowers on the pillows. The gym was nice and we used this several times. Water and towels were provided. Out the back gate the security guy was helpful with getting you a Taxi or a Tuk Tuk and always had a friendly salute when you came or went. It is much quicker to get to the town out the back side rather than the front! The breakfast was adequate with a big variety. We are not big buffet people so only went a few times. The restaurants on site were good. We had pizza several times, the Sandbar has a pizza oven and produced pizzas with great flaky,crunchy crust. The ham sandwich with grilled onions was also very good. At the steakhouse/Asian restaurant the green papaya salad and mango and sticky rice were standouts. There were lots of nice little touches like girls playing music in the lobby and a mini band at night by the restaurants. One of the things we thought could be better was the travel desk, books sitting out were not in English and you could get a better variety and better prices on the street. Another thing we were disappointed in was that we could not get a checkout time later than 1:00. We checked out and then ate lunch and sat around for several hours before taking a taxi to the airport. We informed the bell man at 1:00 that we would need a taxi to the airport at 3:30. When 3:30 rolled around they called one when were inquired again but they told us the trip to the airport would be 1300 baht. This was more than double what we paid to get from the airport to the hotel! When we complained they said we hadn't arranged a taxi ahead of time! At this point we were stuck and had to pay but please make sure you arrange ahead of time AND they write it down! Overall we would definitely return. The workers here a very friendly and seem to enjoy their jobs.
