Novotel Phuket Karon Beach Resort and Spa, Karon, Thailand
average hotel - not the best location
house keeping poor. didn't clean room till 530pm although we left room with clean room tag at 7am. duty manager went on arguing that they have time till 6pm to clean the room. didn't acknowledge the mistake. hotel reception and local taxi people are hand in glove to fleece customers.
A Traveller, in4 night trip
Novotel Phuket Karon Beach Resort and Spa, Karon, Thailand
The trip started off amazing! The check in was fast. They upgraded our room because my boyfriend contacted them in advance as it was my birthday, they even decorated the room. The staff seemed friendly. We had a plunge pool in our room which we were very excited to try out. When looking at the pool it looks as though there as three stairs and it's a shallow pool however there are four and it's about waist height. Ask my boyfriend was walking down the stairs the corner of the very last stair cut his foot open. I instantly called for first aid as there was blood everywhere. Although the gentleman was attentive he did not see the severity of the foot. They did not check on us, they did not think to get us any extra attention or support whilst of the resort as my boyfriend was unable to walk. Going to breakfast was a struggle. This has ruined our entire holiday in Thailand. We were meant to island hop however that's not happening now. He is unable to go into any pool and has to keep his foot bandages up at all times to prevent any infection.

Review of Novotel
Overall great location. Close to beach, food and heaps of travel option. Only down side is the pools need a major re grout.

The best hotel in Phuket!
It was amazing! We were put a reminder as honeymoon trip and they made a good decoration inside our room! The hotel receptionist was giving us an upgrade from standard room booked to superior room. The pool was nice. Even the receptionist was remembered my name! Some extra point if im staying in Phuket again.
Muhammad, my2 night trip
Novotel Phuket Karon Beach Resort and Spa, Karon, Thailand
This hotel has a lot of potential but is in serious need of some attention to detail. Overall I would have to say if I had not prepaid this hotel in full in advance we would have only stayed for 1 night and not 7. The 3 deal breakers for me are: Dampness, Cleanliness and Lack of Internet. Dampness: Upon arrival we were given a ground floor family room. (4112). The room I suspect is for overflow use only as no one would agree to spend a week there. It smelled of mold, there was no aircon on prior to arrival and was so damp it felt like a cold sauna. The bed sheets were actually wet to the touch. Many things in both rooms where we stayed were dirty. The headboards of both beds were disgusting. Not sure what was on them but they have not been cleaned in months, if ever. The door to the bathroom was similar. The curtains were filthy and the hard surfaces in general could use a thorough cleaning and this practice needs to be brought into routine.
