two weeks at this well maintained hotel we are now back home and happy with our holiday. The hotel has a good location walking distance to everything and still quiet in the evenings. They have different pool areas where me and my husband enjoyed the quiet pool most. The rooms has a balcony where we spend some time. The staff... More

We had a family room and although cramped with good organisation of luggage etc. It was more than okay. Very clean and well maintained with a nice view of the waves pool and a balcony. It was also very quiet. The hotel is cash free but there was an offer on at the time where if you banked money with... More

Just back from this hotel and we all had a fantastic stay. The bedrooms are spotlessly clean and the beds are so comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful without fail. The food choices possibly a bit limited but everything was presented well and tasted great.. Beach towels are provided free and can be changed daily. Thoroughly recommended.

Centara Kata resort is well located near restaurants and markets. Not so far from the beach. The very friendly staff made the holiday even more memorable. We met other tourists who said they come back to the same hotel every year. Breakfast is very good and the swimming pools are good sized. We are happy to recommend this hotel.

I stayed at the Centara Kata with my 2 teenage children (ages 13 and 15) and will most definitely be going back there. The hotel was centrally located with easy walking access to the shops and the beach. The hotel was exceptionally good value for money - we booked the option that included breakfasts. The spread was great and we... More

Stayed two weeks 2014. Everything worked out well. Breakfast was a bit hassle but that seems to be normal for Thai resorts. Resort has few pools which are good and nice water slide for kids. Hotel is close to beach but unfortunately you need to go around other resort which makes quite a walk. Lot of places to have food... More

Great hotel to go with kids! If you like peace and want to relax in silence- this isn´t your hotel :) Good food and services. Room was cleaned daily. Free wlan. Free transport to Kata beach daily. I enjoyed two weeks here :)

We had 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and living room in waterfront - so we got same here. This hotel has two restaurants and room service.... More

The room was really nice and just in front of the swimming pool. The breakfast was excellent with daily menu. Here we had our best Pad Thai but you can find better restaurants at walking distance. All the workers there were extremely nice.
