As we went in low season we got complimentary breakfast as well as dinner, which was a huge bonus. Buffet was great with lots of variety.
Weather was perfect, it may have rained in the evening but this did not stop us from daytime activities. During the wet season the beach at Karon is a bit rough and the red flags r out meaning too dangerous for swimming along most of beach due to underlying rips. There are areas with red and yellow flags which are patrolled by life guards which is safe for swimming. Beach in Karon is much clearer than Patong beach where the water is brown. Kata beach is about 10 minute walk from Horizon and is good surfing beach although watch out for the sewerage outlet which is opposite club med about half way along beachfront. This is not flowing every day day but we did get caught hiring boogie boards in this spot the day before horrified when we went back the next day!!
Horizon is right down southern end of Karon closer to Kata beach. Up a hill so tsunami safe!! Tuk tuk available to take you up and down hill if you don't feel like walking. Free shuttle to sister hotel in Patong daily which is great for shopping of 'genuine copy' bargains from markets.
Room very clean although we did ask for adjoining room for our family of 5 but didn't
get even after asking. This was a bit disappointing.
Overall rooms very clean. Pool clean and lovely, buffet plentiful. Location good as there is a variety of restaurant down the hill if u don't have the complimentary dinner. Staff are friendly.
Quality hotel for great price.
