Now, before I share my story with you, you should know that I visited Phuket and stayed at this hotel back in May 2006 (despite of the date shown, since the dates on this website don't go that far back!). While there were next to no remnants of the tsunami of a year and a half prior, the hotel was...

It is a big hotel, with a lot of rooms. If you have a sea view room, it will take some stairs up to the top floor. No elevator. It is used by some of the charter companies, so I would assume it is pretty full during the peak season. I was there during rainy season, which is not bad....

The place is well maintained, the staff is friendly and the breakfast is good. Its one of the few resorts that is barely five steps...

WHAT is this?! Credit card machine is not working? Where should we go and get so much cash? When we told them we don't have the cash...

Nice hotel, deserves 4 stars. Clean and close to the beach, which is important as the beach has no shower around but is anyway fantastic) This hotel is also close to Kata so you can walk there if you are tired of Karon. There is a tuk-tuk stand nearby and in the evening there comes a guy who makes fantastic...

Literally across the road to beautiful Karon Beach. Karon town is not that nice...no sidewalks so you walk on the edge of narrow roads...plus it smells like sulfur and waste! But this beach is beautiful...one of the best we saw in Thailand. *Pool Area: More than expected even from pictures. Gorgeous. *Breakfast: Superb. A huge display & array of food....
