Me and my partner just come back from a 5 day stay in this hotel. Staff are very helpful and friendly you cannot fault them. We had a cabana room which was lovely and private but there is no sun at all which put quite a downer on the stay. The room it's self was lovely always clean! The little... More

Don't understand why so many reviews are so positive. There are some very good things about the hotel, but it's very tired, and certainly nothing special - in fact although it wasn't bad enough to make a fuss, it's the worst hotel we have ever stayed in in Thailand. At reception, the most important thing for the staff was to... More

Good sized rooms and lovely gardens with 3 enormous swimming pools (one designed with children in mind). We booked a sea view but when we arrived they took us to a room over the pool. As soon as we told them they sorted it out without any problem. As we were staying 10 nights we had to pay a deposit... More

We stayed here in November 2014 and are a middle-aged couple. We arrived late at night after a long flight and were warmly greeted at reception and led to a seating area and given a cold drink whilst our paperwork was sorted out, staff were very polite and efficient and within a few minutes and a few signatures later were...

The Centara Karon is an oasis of calm and tranquility! It's such an antidote to the awful, seediness of the "Irish bars" and other loud touristy stuff just outside its gates. But they spoil all that by making the pools impossible to really relax around because of their insistence on blaring out loud, incessant "music" that no-one wants to hear!... More
