Great location close to Karon Beach!
Location, simple yet comfortable, love the rain shower.
It was a comfortable stay with no issues. The rooftop pool has a great relaxing atmosphere, watching the sunset is a must!

Pleasureable and relaxing
Location, friendly staff , comfortable clean room
We found our room to be very comfortable, roomy with plenty of natural air flow if you don't want the air conditioning on all the time. Only downside, the bathroom was very small and the mattresses are hard, however, you only have to ask the staff for the bed to be made "soft soft" and they are only too happy to do so. Very friendly staff who always greet you with a genuine happy smile. Overall , a great location, beach just across the road and the ocean is beautiful to swim in.

Great value and so close to the beach
close to the beach, nice pool area, clean and modern hotel and rooms
The hotel was very nice and the staff were friendly and helpful. We arrived early on a Sunday morning and they tried to get us in a room as soon as possible. 10% off to get massages which my wife used daily. Right across the street from the beach. Many great Thai and international restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Make sure to get a room on the south side of the hotel. It faces a green area and you can see the Big Buddha from your room.

Necessary Escape
The hotel location is great (1hr from airport, across the street from Karon Beach, lots to do around), the staff is courteous, and it was an excellent value.
Grand Sunset Hotel is a great place to stay. It was the perfect location for my wife and I to have a break from the children. It was quiet in the hotel area, but close enough to a burgeoning night life if we wanted more activity. The stay couldn't have been better. Location: The hotel is located far enough from the airport to never see/hear an airplane. It is central to many great restaurants and street vendors. The proximity to the beach is almost unbeatable, especially at the price of their rooms in high season. This was really the deciding factor for us booking with Grand Sunset and we were extremely pleased with our choice. Staff: Everyone was friendly, well-informed, patient, and extremely helpful when we needed them, inconspicuous when we didn't need them. The cleaning staff did a great job every day, and the front desk helped us by booking us a taxi to the airport at a better rate than the taxi stand across the street. Breakfast: This was an unexpected surprise for us. Expecting a simple muffin and coffee each morning, we were delighted to receive an in-room European or Asian breakfast that was both flavorful and plentiful, arriving at our specified time hot on the plate. It was enough food that we opted to skip lunch and have an early dinner each day. Rooms/Interior: Clean, well-kept facilities overall. Room was cozy, as was balcony. Being located on the back side of the hotel which overlooks a large patch of undeveloped land, privacy abounded. Bottom Line: Great place at a great price in a great location. Highly recommend. Save the money you'd spend on a pricier hotel in the area to do things around the island like speedboat tours, shopping in the markets, and engorging yourself with abundant food and drink.

Value for money and most of all quite surroundings
Clean, comfortable and boutique style.
overall prefect except for the breakfast. Taste was alright but portion was to small and they should not mention as buffet if it was serve as set, to avoid misunderstanding.

Easygoing place
Very clean,friendly staff, nice pool on rooftop.
We had a nice stay at the hotel, but only for a week cause passing thru. Only the balcony was very small, but likely it was on the garden side.

Alright but not quite worth money.
Friendly staff, pool at the roof and near to the beach.
The room was smaller than it appears in the pictures. The view from the balcony was not pleasant: a dirty pond.. but we were pleased to see the Big Buddha on the top of the hill from the balcony. We could not get warm / hot water from the tap of the toilet. The shower was also pretty cold.. There was not almost any of the product available listed in the minibar. Only drinks. The staff downstairs were very friendly and helpful also the service in the dining room was very nice. Cleaners were friendly and they did their job well.

Room for improvement!
Nice friendly staff, good set breakfast available in room at no extra cost, location
I enjoyed my stay, the hotel set breakfast was nice and it was great to be able to have it in the room at no extra cost. The downside was the amount of rubbish on the land next door to the hotel which as what you were greeted by when you went out on the balcony! The cracked and loose floor tiles also took away from the ambience of the room! The standard room was also on the small side. The internet was fast! The roof top pool has a great view!

Decent and easy access to the beach
Comfortable, affordable and easy access to beach
Overall stay was decent and comfortable. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Easy access to the beach as it is just opposite, around 3-5 minutes walk away, great for those beach goers who like to bask in the sun.Easy to get food as there are food stalls just at the street next door or you could rent a scooter easily to ride further down the road for some decent and cheap seafood. Around 30 mins ride away to Patong for some happening nightlife.
