The Novotel on Karon Beach is a sweet hotel. The breakfast buffet is amazing. All staff members are friendly and very eager to please. My only complaint is that the pools do not have railings to hold onto while entering or exiting. For someone with a balance issue that is important.

Very friendly staff but hire needs maintenance - dangerous crossing the street to go to the beach

Recommend this - everything near by
I stayed at 4 different places in Phuket and this was my favorite one. Pros: No deposit required (Novotel in Surin we had to pay 5000baht for our 7 night stay). Clean modern looking rooms Slide for kids with mats (fun n slippery) Next to the beach Market all day by the beach Lots of food selection within 5 min walking distance Laundry place near by for 60baht/kg Any tours booked will include free pickup if in Karon area. CONS: Noisy at night. Music every night til after midnight at rooftop bar. Not good 4 light sleepers. Less toiletries provided compared to Novotel Surin. No toothbrush/toothpaste. No conditioner or shower cap. No iron and board in room. Would come back if ever back in phuket.

Amazing staff and resort
I can't say enough good things about the Novotel Karon Beach Resort. The hotel was beautiful. Amazing pool areas (there is more than one pool), swim up bar, nice view of mountains above. Room was gorgeous- big, clean, spotless and cleaned daily. Its located an easy walk to the main town in Karon. Right across from the beach- you do need to cross a very busy street- but the hotel has a staff member there 24hrs a day to assist in safe crossings. But what really set this hotel apart is the staff. So nice and accommodating. Went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. I got food poisoning during my stay (NOT from the hotel food) and the staff helped reschedule a day tour I had scheduled for that day -- they sent someone up to the room to check on me and bring me electrolytes and medication-- and they even sent a card the next day to say they hoped I was feeling better. Really a wonderful resort.
