Right on the beach, breakfast delivered to the room, within walking distance of the centre of Karon where there are lots of shops and restaurants, swimming pool with sun loungers, all rooms had balconys and air conditioning and the housekeeping service would burn incense to make the room smell lovely.
The first room I was given was very damp and as I was about to go to bed, I discovered the air con was leaking down the wall. The man on duty was adamant that there was nothing wrong with the air con, but eventually moved me to a different (much nicer) room upstairs.
The bathrooms, in particular, could do with a bit of tlc.
Even though it was low season and the hotel seemed quite empty, there seemed to be a LOT of noise in the mornings - 2 mornings out of 3, I was woken early by people shouting in the centre of the hotel, which was quite echoey. There seemed to be no efforts to keep such disturbances from continuing, even though my parents had complained about the noise the morning before I joined them and had been told the guests had left (they hadn't - they left the next morning after another round of door-banging and shouting at each other early in the morning).
Location is great, but unfortunately I wouldn't rush back. More
