The staff are very nice but there are some management policies of this hotel which i strongly disagree with. First, they charge the equivalent of $40/hour for l-o-c-a-l calls, which you only discover when you check out.

They also have a complicated, expensive and annoying system to restrict your access to the internet. And in the week we were there, I could only use their desktop because my Ipad would work, using their passwords.
This is a well appointed, well located hotel which appears to cater mainly to group tours.
The breakfast area is extremely pleasant.

Me and my friend stayed at The Front Village for 16 nights in January/Febuary 2012 and we loved it! The level of service from the hotel staff in really, really good, they are helpfull with whatever conserns you might have, they are very polite and everyone always have a smile for you!! Our room was upgraded to a bigger one upon arrival because of some mix-up at the hotel OR at our reservation agency - Agoda - but who cares - we were happy :-)
We got a big room with a nice terrace with chairs and a table.
Housekeeping is magnificent - they cleaned our room very, very good every day - brilliant!
The hotels pool-area is also very good, along with the pool-bar with is IN THE POOL - VERY NICE!! Great atmosphere, relaxed and calm, sitting in the pool-bar with the highly-recommended Caipirinha-cocktail in you hand - EASY!!! :-)

Our only litte "complaint" is that the hotel doesn't offer free internet - you pay for one hour, 200BAHT or 1200BAHT for 3 days - not the best solution in 2012 :-)

A 10 minute walk to the very nice Karon Beach in not a worry - so the location could be alot worse than is is...

So to all the great staff at The Front Village, thanks for a really great stay!!

Kind regards,

Tommy and Torgeir

Room Tip: We were uograded to a "executive deluxe-room" witch was big and very nice!!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for our 1 year anniversary which was on Christmas Eve 2011. We wanted to go to Phuket but we wanted to stay in a fairly quiet part of Phuket so we chose Karon Beach and we're glad we did. The hotel was great. We arrived on Christmas Eve and they walked us to our room (no porter to help with the bags though) which I had reserved on the pool. It was only a few steps from the pool and it had a nice little covered entrance with a table and some seating. It looked like a cabana rather than a hotel room and we had an actual key for the lock instead of the usual hotel swipe card. We liked that. They brought us a bucket of ice and some wine glasses about 10 minutes after we got to the room upon request. They also brought a bouquet of flowers that we ordered as well. It was very nice and made the evening special.

The room itself was pretty nice. The bed was comfortable and the flat screen TV was nice. Overall we were happy with the room and especially the room location because during happy hour we would just walk a few steps, jump in the pool, and swim up to the pool bar. The location of the hotel was great. Just about a 10 minute walk on a lovely tree shaded path to the beach. The beach near the hotel was clean and the water was perfect. Not a lot to do in Karon Beach but if you want to relax, go to the beach, and enjoy lots of really good food then it's perfect. Service was great, room was great, and overall it was a wonderful 5 day trip.

Room Tip: Book one of the pool side rooms if you can. Eat at the Red Onion restaurant. Spicy but amazing foo...

We stayed here on our very first trip overseas back in 2007. It was recommended to us by a friend. We had a pool room. We loved it and it helped me fall in love with the place. Service was excellent, yes the beds are firm but not enough to stop you from sleeping. We returned here again in 2009 and are going back this year. I highly recommend this hotel. Breakfasts were yummy, security guards very friendly as were all staff, walking distance to shops, markets, beach and bars, what more could you want for a holiday

The front village was the first place we stayed on a 3 week Thailand adventure. The service was great, there is a language barrier but its all part of the experence! The beds are huge and comfortable, the bathroom was clean and it is close to markets. I would stay here again!

We booked a family room with a jacuzzi in Dec 2011. Our stay was pleasant - the rooms were spotless and we were lucky enough to have the jacuzzi bath!

The air con stopped working at 11pm at night and it was fixed within the hour. The only thing we felt was that the 200 baht/hour charge for wifi was rather ridiculous considering we paid 8000 baht for the room - cheaper hotels offer wifi for free!

The staff were pleasant and the breakfast buffet is a win - loads of tasty food - healthy options too!

It's about a ten min walk to the beach - the water is clear and way better than Patong beach!! It's definitely worth it to stay here.
