Overall Disappointing

The rooms all need a over haul old and dated. We had booked a King Bed with ocean view but received room with 2 single beds and view of the carpark. The bed was hard and need to be replace so had 5 nights of not very good sleeping. They made the 2 singles into one bed but used the one sheet to cover 2 people which didn't but couldn't be bothered to complain because the english with the staff was poor. Breakfast was OK , they pools good, but they ran out of towels at times. The Premier Lounge if that's what you want to call it was a joke, My friend and myself paid for this as a special treat for our last leg of our holiday. Well she had a room that she had to walk up 6 flights of stairs as they had no lift, I in the other had just paid for the premier room upgrade but stayed in the lower room and had a lift so you go and figure, so don't pay for the upgrade. If you want to go into Patong the Tuk Tuk cost is $400 Baht, the hotel doesn't have a free shuttle, and their cost is $100 baht for Adults and $50 Baht for Children so the saving for 4 people is only $100 Baht, also only limited times the hotel goes to Patong. Overall I would not recommend this chain to anyone, my adivce find a hotel that had free wifi, free shuttle bus because what you pay in tuk tuk and the extras you would better to stay in PATONG.

Great resort at great prices.

This is a beautiful resort and family friendly. Great value for money and very comfortable amenities. It is situated in Karon which I was told was the place to go with a family. I found Karon not very nice. Streets were smelly and dirty. But the hotel is not. If you are planning on staying within the resort then this place is great. Great pools and waterslides. Beer Garden and events daily make it a wonderful stay. It is well located if you want to go on day trips. I just wouldn't recommend walking the streets too much.

Check the price on everything, and people can be bargained down in price, however, even in retail shops staff often say a different price than what is shown.

Best place in Karon

Everything was perfect! Staff were great. Everything! I did have only cold water in my room but It was hot anyway! Great family place but I went with friends and it was also good for us. We stayed away from the kids pool/ family pool and enjoyed the quiet.

Good Place to stay if you have Kids

We only stayed at this resort as we were on a family holiday and that's where everyone was staying. Resort facilities and pool were great. Restaurant's food was good too inside the resort. However my bed was the worst I've slept on since China. So hard I had to sleep on top of pillows, I am pretty thin and it hurt my bones. If you have more padding on you it might be fine. I've stayed in Phuket before and would stay at the Burasari Resort previously and would stay there again. I wouldn't stay at this resort by choice. When you don't get a good nights sleep it makes the days very hard. My best night's sleep were when alcohol was involved.

Great, but would be Better in future

My experience at this hotel is fantastic. The positives are (i) friendly hotel staff, (ii) clean and pleasant room, and (iii) great location to walk down to Karon. The negatives are (i) the rooms (2 floors above me) are being renovated, (ii) we thought there would complimentary snacks, but were mislead by differing pdt offerings, and (iii) slow check-in process.

Relaxing stay

We very much enjoyed our stay at Centara and would have like to have stayed longer. Quiet location, good sea view with balcony, close to good restaurants and bars and beach only a few minutes away. Will come back again if back in Phuket.
