Beautiful landscape, gorgeous rooms, awesome pool area. Together with my wife, we brought our child, aged 7 and 4. The kids were totally awed and kept talking about the experiences. In fact, they have already planned for the family to make a return trip in a year's time and for a much longer period of stay. It was money well spent and a totally different experience from the last time my wife and I were in Phuket in another 5* resort for our honeymoon. Centara, we have nothing but praises. We sure miss the moments. Thank you Centara, thank you Phuket.
Resort is located in Karon, about an hour from the airport. Nothing in the vicinity of the hotel, nearest shops are about a 5 mins drive away. We had a Deluxe room, which is a good size, sufficient for a family of 5 with 3 kids. The bathroom is big and clean. No complaints. There are 2 main restaurants. 1 caters for all-day dining and the breakfast spread is quite sumptuous. Another Italian restaurant which serves up fabulous pasta and pizza. Prices are quite steep but don't expect anything otherwise for a 5-star resort. There's a lounge at the lobby if you want some coffee and cakes, but it can be a long walk from the rooms. Resort has a private beach (at least that's what I assume), offering plenty of space to enjoy the sun, sand and sea, without the "disturbances" of street vendors. The resort also offer several activities throughout the day for the guests. The place that the kids love most is the lazy river, which has a few water slides along the way. There are several pools, offering sufficient space hence it doesn't seem crowded at all. There's also the Kids' Club which offer wide-ranging activities to keep children of all ages entertained. Overall, had a very good stay and the kids loved it.
cleanliness, facilities, location Absolutely loved the experience. ...it was a magnificant place with all necessary facilities and more. Would definetly recommend to others especially couples with young kids. Staff all had very good attitude and the place has a peacefull presence. Awesome
Best 3 things are 1) deluxe pool suite 2) sunset by the beach 3) pool It was one relaxing weekend.
Nice and beautiful hotel by the beach - Great pool for kids and adults - Access to beautiful beach. This was the best for sure - Clean and beautiful surroundings - Easy parking as we rented a car. Negative: - We booked a room with private pool. However there was rust on both sides of pool fence. The rust also looked like it flowed back into the private pool. It was very dangerous and we didn't allow our kids to swim in the private pool. - Poor breakfast food selection. Not much choice
The facilities are great for kids and the beach is excellent. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. Very comfy. The female staff at beachcomber are quite unfriendly and not very obliging.
It was a very good resort, comfortable, breakfast, pool,beach, bed, staff . Everything was perfect. I have a 6 years old son, he was so happy there and we had a great time there. Try the restaurant by the beach( I forgot the name) it was really good.what a spa! Fantastic. very good location just 10 mins to Patong, very easy to go there either with tuktuk or hotel shuttle.For sure We'll be go to centara grand next time. Negative: Could be more clean, and more entertaining programs during day time . Pricy restaurants! Especially dinner buffet ( the cove)
This was a great hotel on a private beach in Karon. Not too close to the hustle of Patong yet close enough 5-8 mins by tuk-tuk if u want to party. Centara is awesome! Great food, staff, clean, pool was awesome, amenities were great, I will definitely be staying here again.
Superb staff. Amazing pool and water activities. A short walk into town, but that was not a problem.
good location good view near beach...but the food are taste bad....generally a good hotel !!
We booked this place because it looked like it would be great for kids. We were not disappointed!! The pool area comes complete with kids pools where kids can dive and go on water slides. You can even tube around the pool underneath the waterfall! The room was great - big size and perfect for 2 adults and two kids. The hotel went out of their way to accommodate our daughter who is celiac by providing a range of gluten free options for her. A great holiday!
My husband and myself just spent 5 nights at this Resort. Our room was lovely with an awesome view and very quiet and private. It is out of the bustle of Karon so you have a nice quiet beach where you are not hassled by hawkers. Adults pool was lovely. What really impressed us what the service from the staff, especially a waiter called Oh. They were friendly, attentive and always greeted guests with a smile. The Spa was wonderful also.
