We recently returned from 9 days, staying at Centara Grand. Travelling with my husband, son and I was another couple without children. Our room was in block nine looking out at the ocean. We had 2 double beds which was perfect for us and the bathroom and view was amazing. Our friends had a pool suite room which was perfect... More

I stayed at this resort for 12 nights with my boyfriend and only just returned to Australia. I would definitely stay at this resort again and recommend it to everyone.  Location - Amazing! Right on the beach and just a 10 minute walk to  Karon and a short and cheap drive to Patong. Room - we were given a corner... More

We had a great stay at this resort. While not in the thick of Patong or Karon town this is what made the resort so great. You are no more than a small taxi or tok tok ride away from the many townships yet in the resort you can enjoy a great secluded beach and great facilities. The resort caters... More

We enjoyed a week here in June this year.Not being peak season the advantage was not too crowded and we had perfect weather. The disadvantage was it is right on the beach but you can't swim. The currents are too strong at that time. However, the pools are wonderful, the rooms excellent, with lovely views,and the service at reception and... More

Booked for 7 nights and checked out after 1 - very fortunately did not prepay. My family booked a room with 2 double beds and were given one with a king size bed only despite having a guaranteed booking. No serious attempt was made to accommodate my family properly. Management moved in a trundle which meant that there was no... More

Having stayed at a number of Centara hotels previously we had no hesitation in booking this hotel. Its very new, very large and populated by many, many children. I have nothing against kids, in fact I used to be one, but as a couple holiday venue this left a lot be desired. Fortunately we had "Club" membership and the adult... More

We had a lovely breakaway for 4 days at this resort. Everything worked, staff was extremely friendly, sourroundings were nice. We hardly left the hotel area, so we just relaxed by the pools. Food was also good (buffet with different theme every night) Our room was very spacious, and we had a large balcony with ocean view (30sqm)

Just returned from a 14 night stay and will give an honest review!. The hotel is beautiful and in a great setting right on the beach in Karon, it is at the very end but a walk to Karon centre is 10 mins along the beach or 200 baht for taxi ( about £4). The resort is quite spaced out... More

We travelled to The Centara Grand a few weeks ago and although the hotel has all the facilities to make a tremendous family holiday we has a miserable time as we were all taken ill at least once (some twice) at different stages of the trip. At first I thought that we were just unlucky however we were with a... More

We recently stayed at the hotel for 11 nights during the July school holidays. Our boys aged 12 & 9 loved the pools, lazy river and rock jumping wall. The food was lovely and the rooms with balcony and spa were beautiful. Unfortunately our entire family suffered from vomiting and diarrhea illness which reduced our holiday to only 3 days... More
