We spent ten days there in July, on 4th floor facing street. Some nights heard a bit of noise from street, but view entertaining and had small view of sea. Room fine, bed had topper pad on to soften mattress obviously. Could have been a bit thicker as bed still felt bit firm some nights. Buffet breakfast extensive always ate... More

We are about to go back for our third visit to Centara Karon. Each time we have travelled during August and we have been unable to find anywhere that comes close in value for money. We love the Karon area and it feels like coming back to home away from home- beautiful hotel in a comparatively quiet culdesac. Love the... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in February 2014. We had asked for a quiet room with a sea view. Our first night was spent at the top of what looked like a multi-story car park with a minute balcony, hardly large enough for two chairs and so high it made us dizzy. A speck of blue could... More

We visited this hotel in July 2014 as a family of five, my husband and I and our three daughters. On our arrival we were greeted with a welcome drink following our transfer and advised that we had been upgraded which sounded fantastic. However when we got to our rooms they were quite small albeit the view was lovely (... More

We have just arrived home from spending 10 nights at the Centara Karon Resort. This resort is perfect for families. The 3 pools all with swim up bars, and one with water slides which were a hit for the kids. The resort is located 1 block back from the water. Outside the entrance of the resort is market shopping, bars,... More

Dear MH Bris, We do pride ourselves on being a family resort, therefore I was pleased you enjoyed our 3 pools and the swim up bars, the Lagoon pool is indeed very popular with children because of the kids’ slide. We are just a short walk away from the famous Karon beach as you stated. In addition we are located... More
