Visited Karon View in December 2016 for 16 nights. The apartment was superb but the pool and lack of maintenance left a lot to be desired. On the day we arrived and started using the pool the jet wash came out and the grime on the paths were jet washed, we feel this should've been done prior to our arrival. Chemicals were added to the pool which prevented our children going in for a day. The general condition of the pool was poor with tiles loose everywhere. The grills around the pool had deteriorated which when stepped on broke resulting in a minor leg injury but could've been a lot worse. I have scored it a 3 rating as the standard of our apartment (condo) really was superb but if money was spent on the pool then this would be without doubt a 5 star place. Loved the holiday, loved the condo but the pool was an anticlimax and really let the side down. New pool furniture is also required as rusty and broken. Would we return, definitely if they sort out these basics.
We stayed at the penthouse with the private pool on the roof. Staff were very helpful and friendly even though we were late and arrived around 2am and the hotel itself is amazing. I would definitely go back. Strongly recommend.
We found this to be a really nice hotel. Just far enough away from the hustle and bustle, close to the beach, and easy to get to. It took a bit of finding the first time, but soon got used to it! The Staff are lovely, really accommodating and polite. And what a lovely breakfast, fresh fruit, cooked breakfast and fresh juices. We had a quiet roof top pool, with a sea view, great location - we love it!
Stayed here with family - 2 teenagers, brilliance facilities the unit was very large, spacious, modern and well equipped. Would have been nice to be on the beach, but few provide that in this area and the price would have been much higher. A bit of a walk 5-10mins to the beach and local shops, but that was fine. Friendly service, small but decent pool. We'd stay here again.
This resort had some varied reviews but all I can say is it is exceptional value for money . The apartment was a large 2 bedroom, well appointed kitchen, extremely large living area and lots of balcony space. Unexpected daily housekeeping included change of all linen including doona covers, bathrooms scrubbed and all floors swept and mopped. OK the cleaners appeared to do the cleaning whether you were ready or not but we soon discovered they were very happy working around us. The gym is basic and the 2 pools are good. Breakfast for about $5 includes juice, coffee or tea, toast, fresh fried or poached eggs and bavon and fresh fruit and you can go back for seconds if you want. The property is built on a fairly steep incline and there are some steps to be negotiated but once you are down at street level it is a short flat walk to the beach, shops, markets etc. There is a very reliable lift between floors after you have climbed the steps to the ground floor. There is no laundry facilities on site but the laundry across the road offer wash and iron for about $2/kg! Excellent air con.
After reading some reviews on the apartments we weren't sure how they would be, but all I can say is they are fantastic value for the money. The staff from front office to the graders were all so friendly and happy and if we return to Phuket we would Defiantly book with them again. Thank you Baan Karon view for helping make our stay a memorable experience .
This is one of the best self catering resorts I'v stayed at in Thailand. Very Clean and modern. Pool areas and gym are awesome. The breakfast is great. Friendly, helpful staff. The only downside to this accommodation would be its location from the beach, however a 5 min walk never hurt anyone.
I stayed there in January of this year (2014) for 5 nights and we really enjoyed our stay! The apartment was very clean & modern plus we had an awesome view over the pool. This is ideal for families or groups. We enjoyed every minute! Highly recommendable.
The website for this hotel shows high quality, self contained accomodation, with a range of facilities. The rooms are poorly maintained with us having to ring reception 6 times in the first 24 hours, for basic maintenance such as blocked sink and shelving falling down. There is no restaurant, no minimart, no bar, no room service which is what they advertise. The breakfast is minimal, with the staff putting their make up on while standing at the coffee machine, and smoking right beside where you are trying to eat. The driveway is very steep and when we asked them to call a taxi for my elderly parents we were told 'we don't do that'. The cleaners however were very polite and kept the rooms very clean, although the towels were threadbare, and the tissue box, actually held a roll of toilet paper. I'm sure when it was originally built it was a lovely resort, but it is in need of some major renovation, particularly the amount of rotten wood around the private pools, which are verging on dangerous. We booked for two weeks, but left after the first week. The manager assured my parents that they would refund for the week we didn't stay, this was in June and they still haven't received the refund. Unfortunately it has tainted my opinion of Phuket.
We arrived at the hotel about 8pm when we booked in we were told that I had to pay every thing up front which I did we asked if we could get a meal from the restourant we were told it was closed this was a lie thay did not have one they said we could order a pizza there was a very low standard breakfast in the morning no room service the so called jacuzy on the roof needed plenty of maintenance the safety rails around it were dangerous full of white ants rotting away there were lumps of rotten wood looks like they had laid on the floor for a long time we put up with it for one week then we decided to shift to another hotel they said that they would refund the second week that we had already paid for they gave us a document for the refund this was a lie it has not happend. We found out there was no restourant no bar no mini mart and definetivrly no room serve or for that matter no servise.
