“Good room, helpful staff”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

Stayed here for a week in March. Stay was pleasant, nice sized rooms with TV, and fridge. Rooms were cleaned daily (although sometimes the staff were a little over eager to clean the room!!) and were spacious. Steve was very helpful and always available to solve any issues/help with directions etc.

If you don't mind walking, the guesthouse is handily located between Karon Circle and Kata, with Karon Circle being about a 15/20 minute walk and Kata around 10 mins walk.

Although we didn't use it, there is a deal with a local hotel which enables Pineapple customers to use the pool for 150 Baht per day. Karon Beach is very nice (ALOT cleaner and chilled than Patong Beach!) and we found that we spent most of our days here.

Would recommend and definitely stay here again if back in Karon.

We stayed 2 nights at this place, took a room with ac. The room was very big and very clean, and the ac worked well. the room includes safe and fridge. the location is very good, 10 minutes from Karon Beach, and you can also walk to Kata Beach (20-30 min). The staff was helpful. Very good value for the money, we recommend it.

I was here on business and very glad I picked the Pineapple. I got just about the cheapest room in Karon, which was squeaky clean, quiet, and blessed with WiFi that was always speedy.

The restaurant serves up delicious curries and solid English breakfasts, also well priced. The big mugs of coffee were a nice touch.

It's a 5 minutes walk to the beach, and the bus to Patong and Phuket town are just outside

I was made to feel welcome by Steven and his family, and if I had to return to the area, I'd definitely stay again.

Karon Beach is much more low key than Patong, and good for couples and families. The guesthouse is not the most attractive we've stayed in, but the room was large and had a fridge, hot shower, comfortable bed, a/c, and wifi. It is only a 2 min walk down the street to the beach and to all of the restaurants and markets. We only had breakfast at the guesthouse which was good and cheap.
