great meals, friendly staff. Good atmosphere. Loved the seafood night the most. Fair pricing but cheaper compared to Australian Hotel prices

We stayed at Centara Grand Beach Resort for Spring Break and opted for breakfast included. This was perfect - kids could sleep in and dine around 1000. The breakfast options were plentiful - amazing fruit, salads, lots of bread choices and the best croissants we've had in Asia. Many egg preparations, crepes and pancakes, Pho soup, potatoes and meats, anything... More

We ate here on our first night and enjoyed some excellent thai food. The hotel Christmas Eve party was also organised here and the buffet was great! A huge selection of sea food including clams, oysters, salmon and rock lobsters as well as a huge barbeque grill with all sorts of meat. Quite a feast and in general the quality... More

Add meals and pizza and the service was great and the food excellent. Price a bit more then in the towns but worth the experience. Chef Matteo Verini personal service was noted and thankful for great cake for my partner

The food was hot, fresh and very reasonably priced. There was a good range, including both Western and Asian. The themed buffets were also good value but I preferred the a la carte dining.

Unfortunately The Cove was where breakfast was set. It was very noisy. The egg station was outdoors and when the eggs are pre cracked and put into a big bowl. It would have been nice to see the eggs cracked in front of you so you know they are reasonably fresh. Sitting outside is much better

Truly delicious and authentic vegetarian cuisine , with the variety of Indian , and international food. will recommend, mashed potatoes with garlic, tender coconut milkshake , and all time favorite pasta..! & not to forget to have taste of Indian food as well. Basically a very good options for vegetarians rather than searching out when you are really hungry..!
