We stayed in Karon for 12 nights in late June. Ideal location being close to shops, beach, Kata and by tuk tuk or taxi to Chalong, Patong, and Phuket Town.
The accommodation is a modern facility with everything required for cooking, entertaining and enjoying oneself. It is more cost effective to eat most meals out as within walking distance there are approximately 50 eating establishments ranging from basic to rather up-market.
The Gym and Swimming pool are ideal for adults and children alike.
There is someone on site 24/7 to assist with ordering taxis and responding to any queries you may have.
The local people we found to be friendly, courteous, honest and prepared to assist without being pushy.
We went most places not within walking distance by taxi or tuk tuk. Many hire scooters or cars but if driving you would miss many interesting sights and a number of interesting places are only known by local drivers.
The only exception to this is the odd Taylor. One in particular being Thomas Exclusive Style Taylor who told us to go home on the first day as we would not enter his shop to buy his products. Another Taylor we witnessed opening his door directly in front of other tourists causing them to have to walk on the road to avoid entering his store.
While walking anywhere in Karon, Kata or Patong be prepared to be stopped by persons claiming to represent resorts with scratch cards stating you have won a prise and all you need to do is go to a resort and listen to them attempt to sell you a great holiday special you can't refuse for about NZ$28k. They expect you to sign up then and there without carrying out any due diligence. If researched you will find this is all a scam.
That aside we would certainly wish to visit again and book into the same accommodation.
