Phuket Orchid Resort & Spa
Ranked #61 of 137 Hotels in Karon
Reviewed 2 September 2017

cons: nice slides and pools. location is not bad - between kata and karon. you can walk 10-15 minutes to arrive to the centers.

the hotel itself is very outdated: walls so thin you can hear everything going on everywhere (other guests or staff every time they pass the corridors for example).

the "kids club" was always closed with a sign saying "go to the reception in case it is closed" - when I went to the reception they told me it is a small room with a table to draw and a small TV. by the way the TV has only one channel for kids (cartoon network) which is not active in the morning.

the AC wasn't great and the refrigerator was even worse - not cooling very well and small. the hotel supply 2 bottles of water (like any other hotel we experienced in the area) but in glass bottles -we asked not to get those (small kids + glass bottles... not good combination).

Below average hotel, work going on at the Buddha face pool bar so that sections closed, rooms stink of s*it. The kids pool was alright everything else including location for the price paid ain't worth it. Karon in general is average your better off going to kata beach avoid this hotel

We stayed there for 4 days and had the rooms near the private swimming pool. It was very nice and all staff were very polite. The breakfast buffet was also very good with a lot of choice. Very good location as the beach and all the shops are very close. Would highly recommend for a family holiday as the main swimming pool is very big. Thank you for all the staff. Would definitely come back!

We stayed here feb -17 and it was the worst hotel stay ever! 97% russians and they let their kids run crazy in the pool! Climbing the slides from the side causing big accidents! Pooping in the baby/kidspool and then refuse to get up so the staff could clean!!!! Mayhem at the breakfast buffet! Watching parents hitting and screaming there heads off at their kids your kind of deal? then go to this hotel!
