This resort was soooo big, there was a driver to drive us to our door step. Hotel is very modern, the villa room is spacious and well equipped. However, maybe due to the fact that the resort is so naturey, there were many bugs and lizards around the area.
I've stayed at Horizon Karon Beach 6 times. I'd definitely recommend staying in the Privilege Club wing with no kids. Karon beach is definitely nicer and cleaner than Patong. The hotel runs a free shuttle several times a day/night up to Patong. There's plenty of shops, bars and restaurants at Karon and you are also close to Kata.
This hotel situated on the beachfront was a pleasure to stay at. The beach was cleaned daily by the staff & the view was awesome. The pool was clean & staff were friendly and courteous. The room was a good size with comfortable bed & a great shower. The design of the glass wall in the bathroom is a bit peculiar but does have a curtain for privacy. Being only one of the hotels actually built on the beach makes it a lot easier for access as you do not have to cross the road. The free breakfast buffet was plentiful with a great variety of food. The hotel is centrally located from Kata & Karon, which makes it easy to access shops / restaurants in the area. Unlike Patong Beach which is busy, sleazy & smelly, Karon Beach is a pleasure to stay at.
A very nice hotel. Unlike many, this one is actually on the beach, meaning no road in between the beach and the hotel. I got a room that was partly sea facing. The bed is placed right up facing the balcony so you can lie in bed and look out at the sky, sea and swimming pools. The balconies are large and have comfortable seating, in fact there are two balconies and both had seating. There is an adults pool and a couple of smaller kids pools plus some areas in between covered with beach sand to give a beachy feel and for kids to play in the mud. The kids club also seems interesting. I used the restaurant only once and the choices were not that good. So I decided to walk down the road and go to the restaurants there. There is a decent size town within walking distance with the usual stuff - massage places, vendors selling fruit, restaurants and bars and some shops. I did not see any sleaze in the area which is good. Overall a very nice resort and good for families and kids. I chose it partly because I visited the Centara in Bentota, Sri Lanka and it did not disappoint.
We stayed for two nights. It is in a good location and very reasonable. Hotel is quite modern and has a nice entrance. It would be nice if there was a bar in the hotel. Staff were helpful. I think overall this is a good choice for a short break in karon. However if staying longer I would want a hotel with more facilities including pool, bar etc.
Could not have been more pleased with this hotel, it's staff and on-site restaurant. Overall the Boomervang Village far exceeded our expectations in every way. What started out as a two day reservation was extended to four as we re-arranged our travel plans to include a longer stay at this hotel.

Tried this hotel after reading through the reviews. True as per what the other travellers had mentioned - hotel facilities are great; service staff are friendly and helpful; room cleanliness and comfort level are of 5-star hotel standard. Needless to say the satisfaction level is contributed by the value deal that we have gotten via expedia. The resort location is alright for us because we drove and karon beach is just right opposite!
Some facilities worth complimenting are kids world (where families with kids can place them there to be entertained while the couples enjoy their personal time together), lots of swimming pools around the different block clusters and the serenity ambience within the entire resort. Some areas that require improvement - toilet reeks of sewage smell , breakfast spread is quite limited, and the front desk attendant wrongly indicated the wrong room no on our car key tag which resulted in some delay and confusion.
Overall, it has been an enjoyable stay with Novotel Phuket Karon Beach Resort. We will definitely consider coming back for another stay again when we come Phuket again!

"Nice hotel close to beach, restaurants and shops"
We loved the location! Short walk to beach. Money changers, minimarts, pharmacy, restaurants all close. I would recommend for families. Karon beach is one of the better better beaches. We booked a bottom floor pool swim-out room - fantastic - fabulous bathroom! Breakfast is adequate and enough for all tastes - we will be back!
