Review from our guest from canacda

We booked Horizon Karon Beach for our Canadian friend who was traveling around South East Asia and we booked and pre-paid all flights and hotels for him. We had no trouble with any of the hotels from Siem Reap to Bangkok to Krabi and Hanoi. But it is in Horizon Karon Beach Resort that we encounter the problem of them not accepting the pre-paid room because the credit used was not in the name of the guest. We are flabbergasted as to why on earth does it matter to them who pays for the room as long as it is paid. It created such an embarrassment for our guest and the front office was very adamant that they needed him to pay with his credit card. Hopefully we will see a refund on our credit bill soonest.

Great location and atmosphere

We stayed at Horizon Karon Beach for 5 nights, we loved it. Being our 2nd trip to Thailand we knew we didn't want to stay in Patong, but wanted to be close enough for the shopping. Horizon provide a free shuttle to and back from Patong which was perfect. We had a Superior Pool View room which was neat and tidy and we were very comfortable. The buffet breakfast was fantastic. The resort is elevated on a small hill, where at the bottom there are restaurants, shops, taxi services/tuk tuks and the beach etc within walking distance. We had a great experience. .

Family getaway

Generally, a good 3,5 star resort, dont expect any particular luxury. Breakfast and rooms are quite good, food at dinner and spa treatments are average and not really good value. Some staff speak very little English. Karon beach is just down the hill but its not very clean and beautiful. Kata Noi beach we visited is heaps better. We had dinner at Dino Park and Buffalo restaraunts to the left down the hill, which were decent but nothing spectacular again. In short, if you dont have high expectations, you will enjoy the stay. I will personally stay at 5 star resort next time.

Average Hotel

The tagline on the hotel keycard stated, "Affordable Luxury", unfortunately, based on my recent stay there, it just does not feel very luxurious to me. The grounds of the hotel are nice, however, the rooms are basic. The room (Superior Pool View) was relatively spacious and appeared clean, with a refrigerator, LCD TV, and DVD player. The walls were either paper-thin, or we had loud neighbours, as we could hear everything they said when they were in their own room. The wardrobes had a musty smell, but appeared relatively clean. There were a few flying insects, and 1 millipede in the bathroom. The hotel is located on top of a hill, so be prepared to trek up and down the hill to reach the beach, shops, and massage places. The hotel does seem to provide a tuk tuk service to/from the beach, unfortunately, we were not briefed on the drop off/pick up location, so never made use of the service. The hotel also provides a shuttle service to their sister property in Patong Beach, just note that the schedules are not extremely regular, so you would either need to wait for some time over in Patong, or just take a tuk tuk back to Karon, expect to pay around THB400 for the one way tuk tuk trip from Patong to Karon. Breakfast at the resort is a typical Thai hotel buffet breakfast with the usual egg station, cooked food (both western food and local food). There is usually a small selection of Indian food as well. There is a great banana pancake stall just at the foot of the hill. The vendor comes around 6pm, and leaves at around 2am. He claims to have been selling banana pancakes for 20+ years, of which 10 years have been spent in Karon itself. I also have to mention that the front office staff were very friendly and welcoming.

Nice family getaway

Fantastic location for family with small kids. Nice kids entertainment program and play area. Great pool setup. Great friendly staffs and services. Need improvement with the buffet breakfast food quality and variety. The room furniture and building structure needs upgrading and improvement.

Perfect getaway

This hotel is amazing. The room price included Breakfast & Dinner daily, free shuttle to Patong (main area for shopping and night life) and mini shuttle to the beach area if you didn't like walking down the hill. Had 3 main pools, one being an adults only pool, 2 pools with swim up bar and cheap cocktails. Room was clean, spacious and warm. Food was amazing, everyday was a different buffet dinner with so much to choose from. Location was great, beach just down the hill, shopping and restaurants around the corner. Defiantly would return here again!!
