This was our first stay in Thailand and we travelled with a 10 year old and a 1 year old so we wanted somewhere that was child friendly but not somewhere that was just aimed at young families as we sometimes find these resorts too noisy.
Centara Villas was great. The staff are so friendly and accommodating, the villas are cleaned to a high standard. The staff all spoke moderate English which was also important to us. There are alot of steps, as the villas are up a cliff edge. These steps are a small price to pay for the fantastic views. It would definitely not be suitable for disabled people though as there are no ramps atall in the whole resort which just meant we had to carry a folded up buggy (certainly kept us fit). We also travelled with my 63 year old mother who did manage the steps but used the resorts 'Tuk Tuk' service, which are little car services they provide free of charge to take you around the resort. There is a foot path leading down to the local beautiful beach which again you cannot use if disabled but otherwise is fine. The beach there is lovely. The Centara Grand is at bottom of those steps and you can use there facilities and towels being a fellow Centara sister hotel. We did come down to this hotel a few times as there were slides for the kids and it was right on the beach. The Centara also have there own free of charge sun loungers for Centara customers. You do need to get down early though to get one but if not there are others down there for a very low charge.
The Centara resort, although has beach within walking distance, didn't have anything else really unless you walked along beach, because you are on a hill it restricted us walking anywhere with the buggy and obviously we couldn't walk along sand with it either, but there is a very good fast taxi service outside the hotel which is very cheap. Also the driving in Thailand is very different to UK so we wouldn't have felt safe with buggy and no pavements. As I mentioned though you can walk along beach though just not the road. Overall our stay was very very enjoyable. All our party loved it. The food was lovely, the staff very friendly and the accommodation very good. The views and greenery make this resort like paradise. I would definitely recommend here if staying in Phuket it was also affordable for our family but still had the high standards. There were lots of honeymooners that looked very happy too. Trust me I am very hard to please but loved it!!!
