I stayed at Centara Kata for 7 nights in August. The resort is pretty good although the rooms are a little tired. If I could i would give it a 3 1/2 star. It was nothing in particular, more a few little things. For example our air-con had issues on three occasions but was eventually sorted after about 3 days.... More

This was a great place to stay for families -- good rooms, nice grounds, and friendly staff. The fact that the pool had a slide made it a lot of fun for the kids, who would play for hours there. If you want quiet, they have two other quieter pools. We upgraded to the family suite, which had a master... More
