Karon Whale Resort Karon Beach
Happy Happy Happy ”
When my wife and I first arrived at the Karon Whale Resort there where a couple of minor issues, but they were very quickly dealt with. The staff were very nice and accommodating. We highly recommend the Karon Whale Resort, and are already planning a return visit.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review for our accommodation. We are very glad that K.Carole is satisfied with our service. Including the various facilities of the accommodation, which we have constantly improved Our employees consider customer service to be extremely important. We are so grateful.
Value for money. 2-3 minutes walk to the beach. The breakfast is good. The staffs is so nice. I asked them to change the room as we didn't feel the air conditioner worked well. I felt like i couldn't breath well. They tried to fix it for a while before changing it for us. How kind !! :)
Clean & tidy excellent staff .”
I was a bit dubious about this hotel as only had average reviews. I was more than happy with Whale Resort have no problem staying again has great location, nice gardens including fish ponds , well maintained grounds well managed hotel . Only negative was breakfast was a bit ordinary but on the bright side is served between 6 & 10 & noticed some people turning up at 5 to 10 a bit unfair on staff but no problem for them.
Excellent value for money in a great location ”
The room was large and comfortable. The bathroom had a bath with a shower over, but the water was never hot, just lukewarm. The shower head was too low for most average people. Breakfast was adequate, but one day there were two soups, not a normal breakfast for most of the customers. The pool was lovely, though the music playing from the bar was too loud and unnecessary. Having grumbled about these issues, we would definitely return and recommend to our unfussy friends.

Picked this hotel for its location. Staff were rude and arrogant. Everything seemed to be a bother for them. Breakfast disgusting. Wasps around the food and were left there after asking many times for them to be removed. No variety. Pool good, had pool access room which was OK. Would never stay there again and would not recommend this hotel to others.

Enjoyable two weeks”
Cons: -the air conditioner provides a constant white noise background; -the water pressure and temperature varies (although never cold or too hot) -the finishings are a little worn and dated. All the negatives fade away unless you are expecting a brand new or a five star hotel. This hotel has a nice pool, a varied breakfast (order ahead the first fifteen days of the month and buffet the last fifteen days) and a happy staff. The hotel is isolated from street noise. Some demolition going on nearby during our stay, but carried out within reasonable hours and without spreading dust.

A bit older but kept in great shape. Spotless clean. Staff, especially at Reception excellent. The hotel has non smoking areas but smoking should not be allowed in the Swim Pool area where there are a lot of children and non smokers. Its a dirty habit that should not be allowed on the property of any hotels and restaurants.

basic but comfortable”
This resort catered for our needs went the extra mile. Friendly staff who were always smiling and helpful. Location is good. Had everything we need. Value for money. Rate it as a 3 star. Would stay again.
Look no further”
Enjoyed our stay. Would only stay at this resort when we return. Yes, it needs some maintenance and cleaning, but this is what you find in Asia. The manager is most helpful and friendly! About a 5 minutes walk to a beautiful beach. Glad we found this resort at Karon Beach!
Best hotel in Phuket”
The staff is 110% first class. Very friendly. Exellent breakfast.Everything was perfect. Start with check in and then all help with baggage. Room very clean with wiev over the pool. Cleaning of the room is perfect. The friendly action from the staff comes from their heart. Staying at KWR before and that was very good that time too. Whenever I go to Karon I will try to stay at KWR hotel.
Great location and friendly staff”
Cons They should not let the pool area out to outsiders.
thank you very much
very good value to price ratio. excellent location.
Good location very near the beach. Friendly staff. But the hotel need lot of upgrading. Old facilities. No water pressure. Very hard bed. No sound proof. Keep hearing the lift bell and guest talking. Book for 3 nights but stay 2 nights only.

Hotel over booked. Given a room right next to bi s which I refused. After a lot of excuses from hotel reception finally ,after a lot of trouble manager turned up. Given a basic room and told I a couple of days, the room I booked would be available . Then more trouble started. Please when you book in take a inventory and photos of everything .if anything is broken you pay even if you don't break it . .

Decent & Quiet”
The hotel location is pretty nice tucked away along the main road.. staff are friendly.The bed was HUGE! The pool was good and the hotel even provides mats n umbrellas for those who want to lay on the beach (3mins walk away) Breakfast was decent, and reception staff didnt understand my request for a late check out (kept saying yes yes ok) but at 12 she called the room to remind us of to check out soon. Overall its a nice affordable hotel thats close enough to the attractions Karon has to offer.

Spacious and comfortable”
We stayed in two villas at the back of the property. They were spacious and well appointed. We had an indoor tub and shower, outdoor shower and outdoor jacuzzi tub which were all very nice. The pool was perfect. We spent time in it every day. Location was great. There were plenty of restaurants steps from the hotel. Shopping close by (a very good market at the temple up the road on Saturday night). It was only two mins to the beach and local transport was always readily available to take us wherever we needed to be. Only suggestions for improvements would be general cleanliness (house keeping didn't do a great job) and to find a solution to the mosquito problem in both our rooms. There were swarms of 10-15 in our room every night. That was the worst part for sure. They did fix the gap where they were coming in but not till the last night. It seemed to slow them down but I would warn you to bring plenty of mosquito repellent to stay here. Breakfast was very standard with no variety. While it was included with our room stay, we felt that they could have done a better job. Overall the staff were friendly and it was good value. Combine that with a great location and it's a good deal. Only thing that would stop me going back was those pesky mozzies. Get rid of those and I would stay again without a second thought.
Pool access room ”
The bed was rock hard, which is nothing new in thailand. The staff were friendly and helpful. Room was basic, but good value for money. Only downfall was breakfast, same choices every day and cold friend eggs are not my first choice.
Room is really bad especially the toilet,”
Really bad at the beginning, Room the toilet full of stool the time we were check in and it is out of order, and full of falling leafs both at the outdoor bathroom and the pool. Then moved a little bit more better.
Location is excellent, cleanliness not so much”
The location of this hotel is excellent. Budget resort and 3 stars at best. There was no tea/coffee or soap but they did supply shower caps and cotton buds? I had to clean the bathroom thoroughly the 1st day there. Shower/bath was not clean neither was the basin, toothpaste all over it.They claimed to have a mini bar at market prices, when we enquired they told us no mini bar? The food/beveridge staff are lovely and were so excited to supply a cake for my birthday...so sweet. The pool is a large size and well maintained. In summary, you get what you pay for but I have paid a lot more for similar resorts. Apart from the cleanliness it was a pleasant stay but do not leave any valuables in your room, not even the safe.
Definitely not 4 star”
I was surprised to find my room was very old and smelled very badly of moth balls. Breakfast was not good and there were bees flying around and inside everything. Best thing is it is located close to the beach.
