About this property


The Old Phuket Karon Beach Resort at Karon Beach is built as a replica of traditional architecture that can still be found in sections of Phuket. Nearby attractions include the Karon Shopping Center, restaurants, and bars. This establishment provides a historical alternative to the typical hotel holiday. Karon Beach is arguably a much better destination than nearby Patong as it is slightly less crowded and boisterous. Those wanting to sample Patong or other areas of the island can make use of the convenient public transport systems in operation. All rooms at this hotel have been newly renovated and the seafood served here is rather excellent. If you’re looking for a special and unique experience, look no further than The Old Phuket Karon Beach Resort.

Deluxe Double Room with Spa Bath - Sino Wing
Stayed 1 night in September 2016
Other options are available
Cons The moment i entered the room in sino wing, there was a cockroach dead on the floor and the bell boy just kicked it out with his feet. Another frustration would be not allowing late checkout even if i was willing to pay. I had to book another night so i could keep my room. It means there are rooms available but i dont understand why they couldnt allow me to checkout late. This got me frustrated. Moreover, they couldnt find my booking confirmation from agoda and asked me to email them, this made me and my tour van to wait for 20 minutes despite telling them that i have to leave soon for my tour, i asked if i can settle later after coming back from elephant trek as it only takes two hours but they insisited i wait. very embarassing for the people inside the van waiting. Also, they charged me in bhat instead of the published rate in my booking in sgd, this made it slightly more expensive. And the staff at the reception are not very friendly, just frowning and not very helpful. The reception can definitely improve more in terms of communication and customer service. The rest of the staff from the restaurants, guards (amazing people), cleaners, and tour desk are very nice and smiling always which made the stay pleasant. The transfer for hotel to patong is impossible to get with only 14 seats available, there are hundreds of guests everyday, obviously this number wont suffice especially on weekend. I hope services can improve. Pros The breakfast is amazing, the people in the resto are nice and smiling, the breakfast is my favorite part for sure. The jacuzzi is great too.

Good to relax near Beach.
Rooms in the old part of the Hotel looking a bit used. Nice garden. Good and friendly Staff. 5 min walking to beach. 15min walking to "bar" area. Many restaurant, bars, massageshops and bars in front of Hotel. Silent area. Good to relax. I recommend the Jacuzzi Room. Central located on ground floor.

Value for money
The room was comfortable, and was pretty clean. Loved the pool access balcony. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Only downside is the number of mosquitoes in the room.. So bad that we had to get mosquito repellent for our stay there.
