10 days as couple, with teen in own room next door. We had downstairs room in quieter section facing the elephant pool, with verandah to pool access. Good king beds, firm mattress and mix of pillows. Plenty of shower pressure. Good room service everyday. Breakfast had plenty of options, but gets a bit low on choice if you sleep in... More

We had a ball at this resort! Our first visit to Thailand and we were so excited and happy to find that it was everything we had hoped for!! The staff were so friendly and welcoming, the rooms were very clean and well serviced every day. Buffet breakfast was a real treat and the local shopping precinct had everything you... More

Our extended family spent two nights at the Centara Kata Resort. The rooms were clean and spacious enough. The front desk and the cleaning people dealt with an initial issue we had pleasantly and promptly. The location was great for wandering around the local area but not too noisy and it was a stroll to the beach (so pleased that... More

We recently stayed for our 5th time at the Centara Kata Beach and found that it just wasn't as good as it used to be. When we arrived at 2pm,check in time, we were told our room wasn't ready and we would have to wait an hour. We had been travelling all day with our children and weren't even offered... More

We stayed at the Centara for 11 nights. We had previously stayed in Patong with our teenagers and wanted a more chilled holiday this time. We travelled with another couple who had never been to Thailand before and our choice of Kata was a good one. The hotel caters for families so on the advise of tripadvisor we chose a... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel as it was within walking distance of the beach, restaurants and shops. The staff are friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make sure that we were happy. They even extended the check out time to accomodate us because our shuttle and flight was scheduled for late afternoon, which... More

The Centara Kata is in the middle of everything happening in Kata. Food, massage centers, tuk tuk's outside the door. Taxi service available in main lobby area as well as a tour service. Rooms are great, pools are good. Bar has good specials. Breakfast buffet was a highlight. Their location is in a good flat part of town so easy... More

Great location close to many shops. Staff could not be more helpful especially in the restaurant area. Room was comfortable and cleaned every day - only downside is loss of power during storm. Taxi service receptionist at the hotel was very helpful but entertaining - would recommend this location to all.

Generous sized rooms although it was in a corner. There are three different pools but i guess they required cleaning mire often. Never tried any food as world class EightFold restaurant is just opposite the main entrance. Room service was very good and as ever very courteous hotel staff
