This is my fourth time to Karon Sea Sands resort in 3 years. It has gone down dramatically. I emailed back and forth for a group booking of 32 people. On arrival the interconnecting rooms that we requested for families were not ready and the bedding configurations were all wrong. During our stay 25 of the 32 people came down...

Dear Nikki F, Thank you for taking the time to write your comments. We can assure you there is no virus in the resort. That your group was sick is probably due to the restaurants and food carts outside of the resort. We apologize for the confusion re the rooms configurations and bookings as the resort was completely full and...

My partner and I stayed here with our 9 month old and we absolutely loved it! The staff were genuinely friendly and so helpful.

We stayed for two weeks in feb-march 2017. Karon Sea Sands is a nice hotel with big, clean rooms, good breakfast, ok internet and a very friendly staff! The pool was great, but there was to few sunbeds surrounding it. We did not have a room with pool access, but our friends had. We wished the water fountains at the...

Visited this hotel 7 years ago before returning. While the grounds are nice as is the pool and the rooms are comfortable, the place is not keeping up. The internet is poor. Slow if you can get it and when you do painfully frustrating. Staff admits to this. Works better near the front desk but it is sweltering up there....

A lovely boutique hotel with a magnificent pool. We were lucky to get an upgrade to a pool access room. The hotel is well positioned in Karon, close to the beach and many great cafes and restaurants. Unfortunately the breakfast buffet was not great, with luke warm dishes and long waits for eggs.
