We are a group of 8 returning from 10 nights at Centara, with a mixed start but ending with a fantastic holiday! Centara Grand can't be beaten if you have children. The pools, the lazy river with the water slides and 4m high rock jumping kept everyone (including parents!) amused. Fabulous life guards were on duty the whole time and... More

There are better hotels in Thailand but surely not at the price you paid and the location on one of the best beach of South East Asia.

We stayed here in April 2012. Although we arrived ahead of our check-in time we were made to feel immediately welcomed. A tour of the the grounds in the golf cart showed us where everything the resort had to offer. The front desk kindly got us into our room early but we had already found the pool so had started...
