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 :)

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.

They came and fixed it straight away), and was regularly cleaned. The pools were great and we even had a turn down the slide each.... More
