Nice Hotel, Close to Beach, Stairs to Climb
Location to Beach, Clean Rooms, Nice Swimming Pools
The resort is a short 5 minute walk to the beautiful 3 km, white sand Karon Beach. The resort has terraced rooms with balconies facing the ocean. We were able to check in right away and our check in when smoothly. Be prepared to go outdoors and climb several flights of steps as you go to your room. There is an elevator but only after three or four flights of steps which pass by two of the three outdoor pool areas. October is the rainy season in Phuket, so getting to and from the lobby, you might need an umbrella and good footing transversing the steps. Arriving at our room, we found it to have a very strong odor that caught our breath. It took us a few tries to find a room that did not have a strong odor. Possibly cleaning chemical, but overpowering. The third room we were shown was acceptable. The air conditioned rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. This one opened to a large shared balcony overlooking the swimming pools. The large refrigerator offered the customary two bottles of complimentary water. The safe in the closet was large enough for laptop computers. The WiFi connection was modest. Hotels should improve guest room WiFi connectivity for today's travelers. The bathroom in our room featured a screened in vent along the top of the outside wall. This bathroom offered a tub/shower combination. Plenty of hot water and water pressure. The step up into the tub was higher than usual. Outside the resort, there are several shops and restaurants as you walk toward the beach, including a 7-11 for snacks and sundries. 2MovingTheChi.com have been traveling since April, first through the U.S. and currently in southeast Asia.

relaxing stay
ocean view from bed, fast internet, good service
Great stay overall. I had just been in a motorbike accident and could not walk. Chose this place because its literally right next door to a clinic so I could get my wound cleaned. Only issue was a lot of stairs going up to the elevator to the room. So if handicapped, be ware. Great value and great view. I could stream movies with the internet connection

Nice and pleasant
Good view room , free wifi, nice breakfast and clean room
Good stay ! The room was big and have ocean view with free wifi. The breakfast have variety choices and nice. W have been upgraded to bigger room for free due to our room not yet ready as we checked in in the morning. The staffs very attentive to our needs and te airport shuttle was on time and big van to accomodate our group of 12 people's. Definitely will come back and stay again in this hotel. The only set back was the spa in the hotel under renovation and we need to go outside to enjoy the famous Thai massage.

An excellent beach hotel
Wonderful ocean views overlooking Karon Beach. Easy access to reataurants. Easy access to nightlife.
I've stayed here before and would gladly stay here again. The welcome/check in is very good. The hotel has lovely swimming pools. Superior rooms have balconies overlooking the ocean. The one serious drawback is the bathrooms. Not up to the same standard as the rest of the room. Seriously, the hotel needs to look at making these old style baths into a more modern walk-in shower arrangement.
