Low season Thailand is paradise. We have outstanding weather, and basically had this hotel to ourselves. We stayed for 6 nights, and booked into a superior bungalow for 700baht a night. We were 'upgrade' for no additional cost to a deluxe room (which is in the hotel section). There is really no difference in quality between the superior and deluxe...

Bungalow type rooms set in garden are clean and serviced. Being off-season the breakfast menu is very limited, but none-the-less enjoyable. Reception staff are helpful and smiling.

Pros - Price THB 1000 for 1 night or 1400 for 2 nights for a small hut. Cons - Old huts. - Lousy showers / toilets. - Swimming pool is greenish colour. Is a brave person to go swimming in that pool! - Very unfriendly, unhelpful and unknowable office staff. Definitely not khon Thai!

My wife and I stayed 5 nights at Golden Sand Inn Karon Beach. The resort is located directly across the road from glorious Karon Beach. We stayed in a standard bungalow room which was small..about 5 metresx5metres including shower/toilet.The room was fairly dated and well used by the looks of things. Bed was very firm so we asked for and...

This hotel is a dangerous place to stay, Whilst staying here on our HONEYMOON, Our LOCKED bedroom was robbed of all our cash as we slept and the management WANTED TO KNOW NOTHING ABOUT IT... We even had to call the police ourselves, and I was left to search the grounds alone where I eventually found my empty wallet on...

We booked the hotel based on reviews from TripAdvisor and a collegue of mine. Out of a two weeks stay we booked a family room for 7 days due to a pretty low price and the location next to the beach. The hotel is located at Karon Circle and and approx 30 meter from the nice Karon beach with at...

I generally agree with the hotel's advertisements and other reviews here. I had one of the standard bungalows in December 2009 and I wasn't expecting a 4-star facility so I wasn't terribly disappointed. The quality level is definitely 2-star but for the price and location is was what I asked for and expected. The room was a tad worn and...

I have maybe marked the hotel a little lower than i should as it was nice but average. You get adjoining bungalows which are nice, the pool is lovely. It is a 30 second walk into Karon Bar which is nice with bars restaurants and shops or if you want something lively you can go to Patong which is £6...
