18 months since I stayed in the hotel and am still raving about it. The rooms were large and we were on the ground floor with access to the side pool which was amazing. The hotel was quiet breakfast was good and it is directly across from the beach. I loved it's old style charm.

We had a great experience at this hotel. Yes there were a few maintenance issues, but overall it was a very comfortable stay. We had 2 pool access rooms to accommodate 2 adults and 2 teenagers. The rooms were clean and well appointed. Having the pool access right outside the door was amazing, I don't think I can stay in a normal hotel room again :) Breakfast was OK, the selection did not change much, it would have been nice to have some different dishes offered, but it was acceptable. The staff were great, we had a 2 hour delay in Singapore and I was worried about our rooms being given away, I was able to contact the Manager, Siriyakorn, and advised her we would be running late, she assured me our rooms would be held and they were. There was no trouble checking in or out. I mentioned the maintenance issues; this was mainly the tiles in the pool near our room. The pool needs to be repaired. It was not dangerous, but it could be soon. Did it affect our stay? No, we were still able to use the pool and had a great time. It would also be nice if the lounges opposite the pool access rooms could be reserved for the pool access rooms alone. Many times we went to use the lounges opposite our room and they were being used by other hotel guests. I think if you are paying the extra to have pool access, then the lounges should be private. Not really the hotels fault I guess, maybe the guests coming in to use them should have been a bit more courteous. If a room was obviously occupied with towels hanging outside, then move on to another area and please do not leave your rubbish and empty bottles lying around...Sheesh, some people!! The hotel is really well located between Patong and Kata. Kata is within easy walking distance, for most part along the beach and then an easy stroll up the hill, or you can go via the road. Lots of restaurants, mini marts, pharmacy and massage within easy walk and there is a Blue Baht Bus stop right out the front that will take you to Phuket or Kata. We enjoyed our stay and I would recommend this value for money hotel to friends and family.

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.
