We first came to Thailand in 1996 for our honeymoon and stayed in Patong Beach. We were advised that since then Patong had become much more developed and busy and that Karon was a better choice for families. We chose Centara Karon Resort over its sister hotel which is further out of Karon centre. The hotel is modern, very clean,... More

We stayed with a group of 11 friends at Centara Karon in August. The hotel staff went out of their way to make sure that our experience exceeded all expectations, especially the likes of Fon at the front desk who from the moment we checked in has been efficient and always greets us with a smile. We would undoubtedly return... More

We returned to the Centara Karon Resort for the 4th year in a row. We were as usual received with a friendly greeting and made to feel welcome. The staff were aware of our previous stays and happy that we had returned. Our booking in was done without any issues while we enjoyed a cool towel and cold fruit drink.... More

We have just returned from 8 nights in a 2 bedroom cabana. We stayed with our 2 boys ( 10 & 8) and cannot think of any negatives. We arrived after a long flight overnight, check in was efficient and quick. A minor problem with the access to our cabana was quickly resolved and my husband was asked a few... More

We stayed at the Centara Karon resort for 10 days in August and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The service provided by the staff was exceptional. Breakfast (choice of two restaurants) was excellent. The resort facilities were great for families (3 pools (one with waterslides), children's playground, free wifi, theme nights, pool parties, lovely gardens, spacious rooms). We will definitely go...

We waited 4 hours for our room and we have a baby. Room we had was shocking. My sister's family who were meeting us there had travelled all the way from Australia. Messed up... More
