Alright, So I've been reading up on all the sickness related news about this hotel, and for those worried about visiting this hotel, I say, double check before booking and worry not! I think its been bad luck and bad timing for those who suffered. My husband and I came to Centara Grand in September 2008 for our honeymoon -... More

Another comprehensive review from me so be warned! BOOKING: with Kuoni - impressive service in Bangkok and Krabi. All private transfers - very efficient staff throughout the trip. AIRLINE: THAI airways - absolutely RUBBISH. The flight from Heathrow to Bangkok approx. 12 hours. No seat back entertainment, one screen at front which we couldn't see and obviously no choice of...

Having just returned from the Centara in Krabi, I feel i need to write a review after reading the recent comments on this hotel. Please ignore all negative comments!! This hotel was absolutely amazing. On arrival, we were greeted by Luke the resort manager and other staff. Our luggage was transported directly to our rooms from the speed boat by... More

This is my first review on trip advisor. Yes, it was an amazing location - absolutely amazing. But first my daughter was taken ill. diarrhoea and vomiting. All night. Blocked toilet. Vomiting every 5 minutes - it was an absolute nightmare. Then me. When I realised that half the hotel had it, and the rest were getting over it, I... More

I am writing my first ever review of a hotel in the hope that the management will take the problems with severe illness at this hotel seriously. This hotel is amazing in so many ways that it is a real shame to do this, but things need to urgently change with regard to hygiene at this hotel. My husband and... More

Low quality service, low value for money (family services). Mini club is not a mini club (no training, low attention to children). To be avoided!

The Centara Grand Krabi has all the makings of a top class resort - stunning location on its own beach with a backdrop of sheer limestone cliffs; great pools overlooking the beach; and lovely, spacious rooms. HOWEVER, all this is completely overshadowed by a number of major issues, most of them directly attributable to poor management. The most important being... More
