Fair 4.0
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.

Nice hotel for families
This hotel is pretty nice for families. The room was clean and nice. But the free wifi didn't work well. It was really slow. The pools are great and the breakfast was fantastic. It was worth every penny I paid. The restaurants are little bit pricy considering the portions they serve. I was little bit surprised to see that the chairs in the lobby area and restaurants are kind of dirty with lots of stains and there are some lust on the lamps in the room. It would be nice if that can be changed. The staffs are excellent. They are always polite, smiling, ready to help. Overall, I enjoyed staying in this Novotel.

Perfect for young families!
We stayed here with my sister-in-law and her family - This hotel is perfect for young families!! The pool could do with an upgrade, and some days it was difficult to get poolside service ordering food + drinks. But apart from that, we loved our stay here. Take advantage of their amazing day spa! They offer unbelievable specials which makes it much more affordable and much better than massages down the road.

Perfect location for a family holiday
We had an amazing stay at NOVOTEL it’s a perfect location close to the beach and just enough night life. The room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast were if high quality with good variety. The only negatives we experienced were that the rooms were only cleaned very late in the day - this could be due to peak season - but I think 2pm is too late even in busy times. Also the pool needs new grouting as the missing grouse has create sharp edges in the pool that are painful and could be dangerous. Would definitely go back again !!

Got SO much more than we bargained for!!
What an amazing experience. We spent 15 days at this hotel and did day trips from there. The staff were friendly and responsive. Every request was met. The room was spacious and quality furnishings. Our children had no complaints. They were treated with respect and loved every minute. The beach is literally across the road and took about 3 minutes to get there. Spectacular beach! We swam at the beach everyday. The hotel has so many pools that none of them were ever full at any given time, even though we were there over peak season. Palmy was the hostess that paid us special attention and I will go back to this hotel anytime just because of her!!

Beautiful hotel next to a not so nice beach.
The hotel is located at the edge of the Karon beach not far from the shops and restaurants. The drawback was the very busy and noisy street that can be a bit scary to cross in order to access the beach. Overall the hotel was very acceptable with clean and spacious room. It had beautiful and maintained gardens with very inviting swimming pools. I would definitely recommend this hotel but I was disappointed with the condition of the Karon beach and for this reason I will not be returning to this area.

We'll Be Back!
After a disaterous check in where they had us in a Deluxe(???) room right outside of a VERY busy and noisy street, we were moved to a room on the 4th floor, too far for me to walk (recent foot surgery) We were then moved to a lovely room within jumpin distnce of the pool. All settled in we were told that we had been upgraded to a plunge pool suite! But I didnt want to move again! 4th time {sad face} However the lovely Paula and Jane said no worries they would move us and to enjoy a cold beverage by the pool. Apparently our room had electrical problems. From then on our stay was PERFECT. Food really good,; super fun themed buffets, great for kids!, fantastic slide, play room upstairs, HappY Hour for the grown ups. A very kind and professional staff. We make this trip every year to see our grandson, and we will most def be making reservations here again!
