Traveled with a friend and was looking for a hotel with a good location but not in the busy/club area like Patong- this was overall a good location, although I think the Karon beach area is pretty interchangeable with Kata beach area. We also really wanted a place with beach access which this one did. Otherwise this was a very average hotel.
Rooms average size with comfortable beds; liked that they had blackout curtains. Bathrooms average with tub/shower that was fairly clean. Nice balconies and spacious rooms with plenty of hot water in showers. Black out curtains a plus to keep out all the light.
Biggest complaint would be how incredibly pricey food/drinks are; not all inclusive and very comparable to U.S. prices which is a bit absurd for Thailand. A beer at the pool was equivalent to $6 USD when in northern Thailand is was <%1 USD. Luckily there are places not too far to get sandwiches/food since lunch/dinner would also be very pricey. Breakfast buffet was pretty good and included in our room rate.
Air conditioning took eternity to cool down the rooms and was frequently very hot (~80' F) when we got back to the rooms and took several hours to cool down (AC automatically turns off when you leave room). Overall average, nothing special hotel, and would likely stay elsewhere for a more luxury beach vacation.More
