We stayed here for 2 days whilst travelling thailand, and had a great time. The breakfast was lovely with a wide choice. The pools always had beds available and the slides and swim up bars topped them off although bar prices were expensive compared to others we'd stayed in. Staff we're friendly and our room was lovely. Would stay again.

Great value for money! Something for everyone - families, couples and singles are all catered for. Good breaky. We spent more in near by cafe for lunch, than we did on accommodation and breaky for three of us. Fab restaurants near by. Recommend going to main rd to get a taxi and save about 20-25%.

We have just returned home from a 10 night stay at Centara Karon. This is a beautiful resort with very friendly staff. The grounds are very well cared for with staff continually working hard. We stayed in a Lagoon room which is around the kids pool which in a busier time I think would be quite noisy. Fantastic if you... More

We stayed for 11 nights with our 2 kids 17 and 12. Had a fantastic holiday, everything is right on the doorstep. We had 2 interconnecting rooms at the lagoon pool, pool was great. Staff at pool bar were so friendly, special mention to Jo,Night and Veen. We took advantage of the baht bonanza so didn't have to worry about... More

In every year, there are foreigners died here because of the rip current. That's what local people told me. Room is excellent. Food is OK. Service is quite poor. I don't think they trained their staffs well enough. I asked a staff for the nearest restroom. He told me to walk like 5 mins to use the one in fitness... More

Dear Vorachaet, I appreciate you taking the time to rate us. I am not sure why rip conditions at the local beach are part of your rating process for our hotel. Perhaps you should contact the local authorities if you are concerned about public safety? They can give you more information rather than rumors from "local people"! We offer safety... More

The rooms are ok..I would not say they are child friendly, I found it very difficult with my 16 mth old safety wise, we had a rock hard... More

Dear Amy S, Thank you for your comments. I am glad to see that you enjoyed your stay. We all work hard to provide the best service and facilities that we can. The local government is constantly struggling with drainage especially with wet weather. Sometimes this contributes to smells but we do our best to manage this in a professional... More

Now I must say from the start the hotel is fine but....... the karon beach area itself is dirty, smelly and the beach is disgusting not how I imagined my honeymoon would be. We stayed Centara Karon Resort for two weeks and would have been happy to move on after one week. The hotel is very nice and very clean... More

Dear whippit84, I appreciate you taking the time to rate us. I am glad to see you enjoyed our hotel but a shame to see you didn't enjoy Karon. In the main the rating system is to rate facilities and services within the hotel and there are separate areas to rate the Karon area for future reference. The local government... More

Dear Diago E, Thank you for rating us. Given that you are currently in house, I was surprised that you didn't voice your concerns with one of our managers. Certainly, if guests were pushing in at breakfast, this is easily managed and the team could assist you. Communicate with the team directly in the future and this may enhance your... More

We stayed here over the Easter period this year, and could not have hoped for a better family holiday! So much in fact that we have already booked our return visit and are bringing friends with us! - I must point out already that this is not our first trip to Thailand.
