    Fun, Friendly, Great All Round!”

    - Location! Just across the road from Karon beach with it's amazing sunsets! - Buffet breakfast had a good range - Staff were friendly and helpful - Large rooms and bahroom - Excellent pool facilities
    - No free wifi (have to pay) - Some guests were loud and unthoughful - Overpriced bar downstairs

    Karon Sea Sands Resort was our first hotel in Thailand. It is a 40min taxi ride from Phuket airport which cost us 500 baht and a 10min taxi ride from Patong which cost us 300 baht. The hotel its self is very nice and feels authentic but modern at the same time. The rooms are large, the bed is comfy, and the facilities such as the pool area are great. The staff were always smiling and were friendly and helpful. There is a bar downstairs that is slightly overpriced. For example a Chang beer was 80 baht, where was you could go to the mini mart less than 50 metres from the hotel's door and get a Chang beer for 50 baht. We had one unfortunate incident where a guest of the hotel came banging on our door at 3am asking to be let in. We ignored this and he soon left. The hotel has a range of guests, most appeared to be families or groups of 3 or 4. We stayed here for our honeymoon and as a couple it was great too though. Breakfast is great with a great range of food and Karon beach (which is just across the road) has an amazing sunset!

    The best hotel in Thailand we have ever been!”

    Very clean resort. Close to the beach. In center of the town, close to restaurants, shops, markets. Beautiful swimming pool. Very nice and helpful staff.

    Karon Sea Sands Resort is a beautiful hotel situated in the center of the town but don’t worry of the loudness. Because of the garden you will find silence so you can relax. Rooms are very clean and good equipped. If you choose the ground floor room you will be very surprised because you will have your private exit from the balcony just into the swimming pool. We loved it! There is also a very good hotel restaurant where we have eaten the best breakfast since 20 years traveling to Thailand. The hotel is situated very close to the beach where you will find some activities. We can recommend this hotel to everybody, for singles, couples, families with childrens etc.

    A very nice place to stay”

    Karon Sea Sands Resort is an ideal place to stay at Karon Beach. The location is great-right across from the beach and nearby lots of restaurants and shopping. When you check in you are greeted with a welcome drink and shopping bag, which I thought was a nice touch given all the places nearby to shop for souvenirs. A breakfast buffet is free every morning. My room, which overlooked the pool, was very clean and spacious. The pool features a swim-up bar that features food and drinks. The staff was very nice and helpful. They helped me out when I wanted to go out and explore the area. The only thing I had an issue with is the wifi, which can be spotty and slow. Overall a very nice place to stay for solo travelers, couples, and families.

    Comfy rooms, attentive staff, relaxing environment

    It was the icing on our family vacation. I will definitely stay at the Sea Sands next time we visit Karon. My family enjoyed every minute of it. The workout room was a nice option. The pool was cleaned every morning. The breakfast buffet was superb. The staff was always attentive to our needs and would give us recommendations on what to see and do. The location is just across the street from the beach. Everything is within a 5 minute walk. The beds were very comfortable and the a/c was great. We loved everything about this hotel. I highly recommend this hotel.

    we stayed at the sea sands for 4 nights and were very happy with our stay. we had a poolside room which was great to go straight from the room and jump into the pool. i'm normally a much less extravagant traveller and like the more cultural places but the little taste of luxury was a nice change. the room was great, breakfast was great, facilities great and the staff were great. it is well located straight opposite the beach and just around the corner from the main strip in karon with it's many bars and eateries. we really liked this place and would def stay there again

    Excellent value for money”

    best 3 things are the staff the location and the price I paid

    At the end of my holiday this was to be my 4th hotel and I needed something cheaper than I had been paying. Sea sands was half the price of my previous hotels at £38 including wifi and breakfast and was excellent value for money. Room was large and clean with a nice balcony. A little old fashioned furnishings but still comfortable. The pool was a nice atmosphere but very few loungers. You had to be quick but beach was across the road. Hotel is central to all shops with a fantastic night market in the temple 5 minutes walk away on Tuesday's and Fridays. Breakfast was the same choices as my other 3 hotels but not quite so nicely presented and the restaurant area was quite dated, however staff were very helpful and friendly. Wifi was a bit erratic and make sure it's included in room price otherwise I believe they charge. Coming out of hotel to main road and turning right I strongly recommend Coral Inn restaurant. Lovely food, reasonable price and excellent staff. This hotel was disappointing at first after my previous hotels but if you can my price of £38 double room per night with wifi and breakfast you should be pleased. If taking taxis use the hotel as it is cheaper than outside. Lunch and dinner menu seemed over priced so we never ate there. Over all would definitely aren't return if we could get same price we paid through Agoda.

    location, staff and room

    i was here for just two days. when i reached, i was brought to the poolside suite when i have asked for the seaview room. please make sure you know what you have booked for, because they might just tell you that the room you booked is not available and expect you to take what they have offered. be firm and insist on your room, because thats what i did and i still got my room. aside, location was really good- on your right from the hotel is the main street and left is karon plaza and more mini shopping lanes. all the way towards the main street end is karon night market ; open on sat when i was there. beachfront room is perfect. quiet with just 1 room aside from mine located in another building. just that they really need to review the 1 hour free wifi. that doesnt make sense when you cant even access wifi at all in your room lol. staff is amazing. the front desk guy, jerome is a really nice and friendly guy. heard hes on internship from manila so hey if youre from the management of this hotel,please commend him on his job! hes really nice to guests. will come back for the beachfront rooms again! :)

    Karon Sea Sands Resort”

    Location is good
    Would be better with a swimming pool

    Karon Sea Sands Resort Staff are very friendly and nice (would be better if they speak better english). But they are extremely helpful. Nicely done up room. They also offered to pack our breakfast for us to eat along the way to airport for our early flight. Good location for travellers away from the bustle of Patong at night. Quiet at night and only a short ride away from Patong (20 mins) should you want a beer in a crazier setting

    we had a great stay at karon sea sands resort. be sure to get a pool room as you step in to the pool from your balcony. bee the pool bar attendant knew how to make a real cocktail without too much sugar syrup which they seem to do everywhere else in thailand.

    big room, comfortable bed, close to beach
    breakfast was terrible, pool is shallow

    karon sea sands was a beauitful place to stay it was central to most things right across the beach and all fascilities were near by. the breakfast was terrible, dry fruit, concentrate juice, bitter coffee and limited range. the bedroom was huge and the bed itself was very comfortable. cleanliness of the hotel was above standard very happy with the hotel staff performance and service.

    Couldn't be happier with this resort”

    This is one of the best beach resorts I've stayed at in Thailand. It's right across the street from the beach. The pool is actually bigger than I expected from the pictures, and quite lovely. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Everyone on staff was friendly and helpful. We asked to check out an hour late and they were able to accommodate us with no problems and no extra charge. They're currently (Nov '18) renovating the spa area, but I didn't miss it. There was some noise from outside, but if that's a problem for you, you're already looking at more out-of-the-way spots than Karon beach's main street.

    Pleasant hotel, good room, friendly staff”

    Room was large, good bathroom, well maintained by staff. Staff were very friendly

    i like the room which was large and had all the features i would expect from a 3/4 star hotel. the staff were friendly and tried to be helpful. their english was not so good but i managed. my thai is terrible. the hotel is very close to the beach and all facilities in karon. many shops, bars, restaurants, taxis etc are within the immediate vicinity but you are not disturbed by noise in the rooms. the swimming pool and gym were ok and there was a pleasant bar area. i did not use the dining facilities but they seemed pleasant and popular. karon is a fairly quiet resort certainly good for families.

    Great family place”

    I loved the family suite! Super comfortable beds! I saw that the people on level with the pool could climb directly into the pool from their rooms and I thought that was cool. The pool itself is quite nice and even has a nice shallow play area for little ones. The resort is right across from the beach so if you want that instead, it is easy access. There are restaurants and entertainment nearby which is good because taxis are crazy expensive in Phuket (use Grab). The staff was lovely, I liked the facility. Would definitely stay there again!

    Large rooms and great pool

    The resort is in a great position across the road from Karon Beach which is beautiful. A short stroll to many retaruants and a market. The rooms are spacious and I am told the 2 bedroom rooms are great for families and reasonable price. The beds were very hard but we are taking about thailand most are hard. Free 30 minutes free internet per day. Breakfast average. All in all would recommend and stay again good value for money.

    Good and bad”

    The bad. When we checked in they said the booking was for one guest only so there is an additional charge of 500 Bhat per day for breakfast. I did not remember seeing that the number of guests was required when booking on Agoda so I was somewhat surprised. I explained that my Thai wife never eats breakfast so we did not need it. I was told it was hotel policy and I must pay. Maybe the first time I've lost my cool, and a little face, in Thailand but I paid the difference. I checked again on Agoda and found that if I entered one guest or two the room rate was the same. I spoke with an Agoda rep who called the resort but was told the same thing "hotel policy". They did get the amount reduced to 300 Bhat so I was grateful for that. Just be careful when you book. The good. The room was huge, a little dated but clean and comfortable. We had the ocean view which was right on the Main Street but the road is not too busy and noise was not an issue for me and I'm a light sleeper. The resort is close to everything you need but if you want good food avoid the main strip and walk down past the traffic circle and you'll find a small strip of restaurants along the beach. We ate most of our meals at Mama Jens and the food was amazing at a reasonable price. My wife, who is very picky about Thai food, also said the food was very good. That says a lot.

    Utmärkt läge och bra valuta för pengarna!”

    Priset och läget precis vid stranden!

    Så efter att kollat runt på Agoda hitta vi detta hotell ganska billigt och det visade sig vara ett riktigt bra beslut! Rummen var stora och väldigt rena. Man fick gratis internet varje dag i 20min och om man vill surfa mer så kostar det nästan ingenting. Åt bara frukost på hotellet och var inte bättre eller sämre än något annat ställe i Thailand. Läget är åter igen otroligt bra och stranden är bara över vägen! Karon beach är jätte fin!! Pool området kan jag inte rekommendera, var aldrig där men det var litet och såg inte så mysigt ut.. Om jag åker till Thailand igen hade jag absolut kunnat bo här igen.

    Would recommend this place for a family or couple”

    The facility is not new, but everything was working properly. Once the aircon started working noisily, I called the reception and in about 5 minutes a tech guy showed up and promptly fixed the problem. The location is great for Karon, it is very close to the beach and in a very good area with lots of shops and cafes. The breakfast was good too, maybe not plenty of options but they change them everyday and you don't get tired because of the same choice. I would stay at this hotel again. My big thank you to the staff.
