Very dated, we had a room 2 + 2 and there was absolutely room for anything - there was ONE chair for all of us. The location - if you like it noisy, loud and smelly - is just for you. The stuff was nice and helpful if not to count one rude manager serving in her top looking like... More

Excellent place to stay if you have kids. Large pools to compensate for the short distance to the beach. Excellent service from all of the staff. We left to come to Bangkok for 3 nights and we regret leaving and miss it. They even made a complimentary birthday cake for my son who turned 3 during our stay.

Centara Kata Resort is very centrally located in Kata, close to restaurants, bars, shops, and the beach. I found everything to be close nearby. The accommodation was comfortable, clean, and the staff friendly and helpful. My room was bigger than I expected and had everything I needed, along with a balcony leading straight to the pool. I only had 1... More

Stayed just over a week at this well appointed resort in Kata beach which was a great introduction to holidayibg on Phuket. Kata beach isaway from the hustle and bustle of the patong area but close enough to visit by a fun tuk tuk ride. The area has a multitude of restaurants and shopping just like all other areas on...

Great to be welcomed with a refreshing tropical drink and a moist toweling cloth to refresh your hands. The staff is always willing to assist and respond with a smile to any requests. The room was fresh and cool and the bathroom spacious. Fresh drinking water is delivered everyday to your room. We enjoyed the Jacuzzi in one of the... More

Just stayed there for 8 nights. It was very quiet. Our room was on the bottom floor and we could just walk out of glass doors to the pool. It was within walking distance to most shops and plenty of places to eat. The staff were friendly and helpful.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Both pools kept the kids occupied while we could relax & the restaurant was really good as well. Our unit was on the ground floor at the far end of the pool so it was easy to access the pool area. The staff at the resort were very helpful and extremely friendly. This is... More
