The hotel is clean and beautiful with nice garden and pool. The rooms are Thai designed and with balcony. Next to the beach (across the road) and with good restaurant (also breakfast). This was our favourite hotel in Phuket from the 3 we try. But, the drain was smelly in the bathroom. We ordered massage and the lady was no coming, we need to ask for her and wait for her 15 min more. We try to order a drop off to the airport, but the offer on the web-site is only an offer, no one knows about it and was no able to arrange it for us. I write for the hotel an email about ordering a taxi, but no one answer me after 2days. Than, i think, this hotel is nice, but the staff need to improve in English and the hotel gives offers what they offer - communicate with people. I love breakfasts, the design of the room, the clean places in hotel. But if they offer something (massage, taxi) than need to care about costumers.
Our room was constantly uncleaned. There were alot of dust everywhere and mold on the ceiling, which is considered unhealthy (?) and the service was awful. We repetelty told them to clean better, but they seemed not to care what so ever. Nor did they offer us a new room.
Booked this hotel for a week when staying in Phuket. Had to get another reservation at a hotel nearby due to the terrible service at the hotel. When I first checked in the room was filthy and not cleaned. The reception didn't take any action when I told them this, for three consecutive days. The food was awful, before leaving I was food poisoned by their breakfast. However, the worst thing about this hotel is their staff who does not care anything about their guests, being rude, not helpful at all and also screaming at me when I asked to speak to the manager. Probably my worst hotel experience ever, and I am usually not a person complaining on services etc.
The hotel was OK in it self except for the unsatisfactorily breakfast. But the staff was very unpleasant. Especially the receptionist. It was a young guy who called us rude things and wasn't helpful at all. I would never recommend this hotel.
My husband and I stayed at the Baan Karonburi Resort at the end of May and really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is close to many restaurants and shops and walking distance to the 7 Eleven. The beach is also just across the street. The rooms are very spacious and clean and serviced daily. We stayed in room 1401 and had the most amazing view of the ocean. The daily breakfast was delicious and the staff very professional, I understand why it is called the land of smiles! We will definitely come back next year to stay here again.
Stayed in Baan Karonburi Resort in April. Our room was on the first floor with a garden view. Rooms in the hotel are pretty big, but at the same time old, need some refreshment. Breakfast are good. Personnel are very friendly. Beach across the road.
We were given a room with a pool from balcony access which was excellent..... Even had a mini spa with a seat for two in front of each room there.. Different from the other guest pool. Breakfast spread was OK... Nearby food & restaurant next to resort... About 10 minutes walk to Karon town for more restaurant or varieties of food & some shopping..
This is a really lovely hotel, we had one of the rooms with the pool access (which is well worth the extra). The room was clean and they provide beach towels. The location is excellent right on Karon beach, the pool area is lovely and clean with a bar. All of this aside, the staff are wildly unhelpful, don't expect them to know the answer to any questions about the local area or help you in anyway with anything not to do with the hotel.
Lovely hotel, conveniently located across the centre of Karon Beach. The rooms are clean and maintained daily. Complementary water is also offered daily. The hotel itself shows its time but overall is good. There is a swimming pool at the back for those who don't stand the sand on the beach. Breakfast is offered every morning (if paid in your reservation) and it has a good variety of food which is of a good quality and taste. The staff of more than helpful, kind and always trying to facilitate all of your needs.
Didn't stay in this resort but went to the restaurant on our first night in karon, really enjoyed our meal and service with a smile so we decided to return yesterday evening, however it was a different experience, we ordered our food and then drinks, I ordered a cocktail and my fiancé ordered a beer, after he ordered he hesitated for a minute and asked the waitress how much the cocktails were as alot of places do deals for two cocktails but when she answered him he said "no a beer is fine", however when our drinks arrived it was 2 beers and no cocktail, a clear misunderstanding, the waitress was clearly annoyed and insisted we has asked gor 2 beers, she reluctantly got my cocktail but from this moment onwards all the staff treated us differently and were clearly annoyed with us, one minute they were all so polite and smiling at us and the next they were all giving us dirty locks and couldn't have made us feel more unwelcome. It was clearly a misunderstanding and as much out fault as hers, but in our country we have a saying which is "the customer is always right" It was really disappointing considering the food is great.
