Bottles of drinking water supplied daily. Breakfast buffet good with the usual variety of choices. Even when there was a queue for seating we never had to wait long for a table - five... More

We stayed at this resort in June/July 2014 in the Superior Terrace Rooms. Travelling with 2 teenage daughters, we had interconnecting rooms. The rooms were very clean and serviced daily with complimentary water daily. The location is walking distance to everything. Arriving very late a night after a long day of travelling our check in was simple and quick. The... More

This place was fantastic for our kids. The main pool was brilliant with slides and good depth. Our room was way too small as we left it too late to make our booking. I strongly recommend a poolside room if you can, or at least a family room. The food at the hotel isn't great but there are heaps of... More

This is now our third time staying with the resort and again it was a magical stay with beautiful staff at every turn. We arrived late in the evening after a long travel schedule and were greeted upon arrival at Centara like friends. Check in was without a hassle and accompanied by a cold flannel and drink. The room was... More

Our family stayed here in a two bedroom villa. Fantastic. Can't speak highly enough of this resort. Well priced food which was delicious. I'd go back just for the food at the pool bars. Yum. The staff were all friendly and welcoming and particularly nice and kind to our children. The room was enormous. The private dip pool while shallow... More

This hotel was good in many ways. Staff I would say are excellent. However our stay was slightly spoiled by the disappointing taxi service which is found within the hotel. We stayed here for 10 days in early August. We stayed in a Cabana which was very nice except for a couple of occasions when we returned to our room... More

We have just returned from our 4th visit in 4 years. This year was better than ever. The rooms recently re-furbished were excellent. We stayed in the Terraces building and used the Terraces pool. The staff through out are so friendly and happy and gracious. I can't speak highly enough of Centara. You are so well looked after. It is... More

This was the perfect location for us with our two kids (5 and 3). They had an amazing time in the pool every day. The resort staff love kids as well. Everything you need is just outside the main gates. Felt very safe and didn't get hassled too much on the walks around the place. We loved Centara and would... More
