Front desk staff were attentive, kind, friendly and professional. Attached to the hotel was a lovely rooftop bar perfect for drinks while watching the sunset. Unfortunately, we found it after dark on our last night. Kiran’s Indian restaurant is amazing. If you enjoy Indian food, it should not be missed!

While the beds were rock hard, you can't beat the location--right across from the beach. The pool is very nice and the front desk staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Affordable and great location.

Very old hotel. Service was okay. Breakfeast was okay. Close location to the beach. Pool was very standard, a little dirty. Gym very tiny and smelly. The ladies who worked in the front were great and extremely nice.

The operators of Karon Sea Sands Resort did a good job of taking photos that makes a tired, bland hotel in need of refurbishment look good. This is not a resort. It is not even on the beach. It is a half block from the beach on the wrong side of a busy road. As usual in all Thai properties, the welcome was enthusiastic and friendly and I was given a glass of fresh orange juice at check-in, which was much appreciated. A receptionist accompanied me to my room on the fourth floor, but it would have been useful to have been shown how things work whilst she was there. I tried to turn on the TV, but it was proving difficult. There were two remote controls; one for the television and the other for the satellite receiver, but no instructions and the list of channels that the hotel provides does not correspond with the channels on the box itself. The room was large with a wide balcony overlooking the swimming pool three floors below. Cleanliness although reasonably good was not perfect. There were long black hairs in the wash basin, in the bath and on the bed and I found the floor dusty and gritty. Always wash cups and glasses before drinking from them at this hotel. I observed the stewardesses clean them with toxic cleaning chemicals and wipe them with towels that guests have used, which is unpleasant; revolting even! There is quite a good wi-fi service when it is working, but it has poor bandwidth, so when there were lots of people using the internet, such as late morning and during mid afternoon the system would crash. There is a small refrigerator for guests’ use, which is a nice touch and the hotel provides teabags, coffee and a kettle as well as four 500ml bottles of water, which are replaced if used. Lose the glass water bottle, however, and they will charge a hefty THB 100.00 per bottle. You can buy three full bottles of the same water for that sum in the grocery store nearest to the hotel. There is a desk in the room, which is handy for working at, but with no electric or USB sockets anywhere near it for charging laptops and mobiles, and no desk light! The only two electrical outlets are above the two bedside tables. That is not an ideal location to try and work. The offerings at breakfast were limited. The only fresh fruit offered each day was pineapple and watermelon slices. In Thailand I would have expected a more varied selection including tropical fruits. The omelettes were cooked to order and were tasty. Coffee at 08.45hrs was bitter, lukewarm and tasted like it had been left out since early morning. All the Thai staff in all departments were so friendly, happy and helpful. There are some trainees working there that are eager to please and always wear lovely, genuine smiles.

Dear Iain H, Thank you for taking the time to write your reviews. We would like to answer all your points one by one but we see that the comments are very unfocused and vague in some places. Even the fact that the reason we "charge" for the glass bottle is in fact a deterrent so people will not take out the glass bottles to the pool or throw / break them in the garbage bags, thus forcing people to be eco friendly escapes your reviews. First you say we are not a resort as we are not on the beach. Please note all along the Karon Beach 99% of the resorts are on the other side of the road. Anyways we have always written that we are on the Beach Road and are 50 mtrs from our lobby to the Karon Beach sands, not a half block away as you have written. Then you complain that we have no USB / electric sockets and no desk light to WORK ! So now you say we are also not a city hotel as we do no provide "desk light" and USB sockets at the desk. We do have electric sockets all over our 38 sq. mtrs rooms along with the two table lamps at the side of the bed, with USB and electric sockets. You can always request a long cord from our house keeping in case you want to work on your laptop at the desk. We have taken all the rest you have written to heart and have rechecked our staff to make sure of all necessary amendments and changes. Thank you and with brgds, jaspal
