The setting of the rooms is beautiful, on a hill behind Karon beach: rooms are either amongst lush greenery(bananas growing near balcony) or opening on to one of the several pools. Breakfast was top rate & all the staff were so friendly. Real attention to detail made our stay most relaxing. I loved to just wander around the paths through the foilage - the landscapers really designed this well. Nothing was too much trouble. Rooms had windows & balconies on two sides to let the outside in.

Room Tip: some rooms have direct access from balcony to a pool

We researched a great many hotels before we chose the Mandarava. We're so glad we did. It was absolutely wonderful.

We just finished what has been the most RELAXING two weeks of our lives. Nothing was a problem. Everything was EASY. No fuss, no stress, no problem, not overpriced and very well presented.

The staff here are on the same very high standard as the Emirates airline.

They are extremely (and naturally) pleasant, offer help intuitively, are always smiling, and can't do enough for you.

Best of all though is that the make you feel TOTALLY RELAXED. I call it the hotel 'X' factor. Some hotels have a staff culture that has it, others whose management don't understand that 'happy staff equals happy patrons' make me feel 'cold'.

We felt warm and cherished the whole time.

Our housemaid who cleaned our room did an excellent job (3205). She was cheerful and professional.

The catering staff at both restaurants and the bar were wonderful. The bar staff at the pools were great (especially Sam).

When we got out of a Tuk Tuk out the front we were almost always offered a lift by the hotel to our room.

The hotel arranged everything for us. There were no errors and everything they said happened like clockwork.

When we (curiously) checked the prices independently we were pleasantly surprised as there was no price gouging. So as well as being wonderful people working in a gorgeous hotel the pricing was spot on too.

Very highly recommended
