Visited Karon View in December 2016 for 16 nights. The apartment was superb but the pool and lack of maintenance left a lot to be desired. On the day we arrived and started using the pool the jet wash came out and the grime on the paths were jet washed, we feel this should've been done prior to our arrival. Chemicals were added to the pool which prevented our children going in for a day. The general condition of the pool was poor with tiles loose everywhere. The grills around the pool had deteriorated which when stepped on broke resulting in a minor leg injury but could've been a lot worse.

I have scored it a 3 rating as the standard of our apartment (condo) really was superb but if money was spent on the pool then this would be without doubt a 5 star place.

Loved the holiday, loved the condo but the pool was an anticlimax and really let the side down. New pool furniture is also required as rusty and broken.

Would we return, definitely if they sort out these basics.

Stayed: December 2016, travelled with family

We stayed at the penthouse with the private pool on the roof. Staff were very helpful and friendly even though we were late and arrived around 2am and the hotel itself is amazing. I would definitely go back. Strongly recommend.

Room Tip: penthouse is to die for

We found this to be a really nice hotel. Just far enough away from the hustle and bustle, close to the beach, and easy to get to. It took a bit of finding the first time, but soon got used to it!
The Staff are lovely, really accommodating and polite.
And what a lovely breakfast, fresh fruit, cooked breakfast and fresh juices.
We had a quiet roof top pool, with a sea view, great location - we love it!

Room Tip: get the roof -top pool, its amazing!

Stayed here with family - 2 teenagers, brilliance facilities the unit was very large, spacious, modern and well equipped. Would have been nice to be on the beach, but few provide that in this area and the price would have been much higher. A bit of a walk 5-10mins to the beach and local shops, but that was fine. Friendly service, small but decent pool. We'd stay here again.

Room Tip: newer, renovated ones

This resort had some varied reviews but all I can say is it is exceptional value for money . The apartment was a large 2 bedroom, well appointed kitchen, extremely large living area and lots of balcony space. Unexpected daily housekeeping included change of all linen including doona covers, bathrooms scrubbed and all floors swept and mopped. OK the cleaners appeared to do the cleaning whether you were ready or not but we soon discovered they were very happy working around us.
The gym is basic and the 2 pools are good. Breakfast for about $5 includes juice, coffee or tea, toast, fresh fried or poached eggs and bavon and fresh fruit and you can go back for seconds if you want.
The property is built on a fairly steep incline and there are some steps to be negotiated but once you are down at street level it is a short flat walk to the beach, shops, markets etc. There is a very reliable lift between floors after you have climbed the steps to the ground floor.
There is no laundry facilities on site but the laundry across the road offer wash and iron for about $2/kg!
Excellent air con.

Room Tip: Room 4/21 was great. Rooms on west side perhaps have water view.
