Our room was well equipped for travelling with young children (2 under 3). Small kitchenette, microwave, fridge and freezer. Kettle was a bit small but did the job. Rest of the main room is a rather uncomfortable sofa and table. We were given a cot and pull up bed for the two kids, all in the adjacent bedroom with us....

Just returned form staying here and we enjoyed the time. Location, despite what people say, is just "OK" for beach access and about a 20 minute walk. They do offer a shuttle in the mornings which we used so that is good. The issue is that Club Med have a massive resort on the block back from the beach which...

The Resort is in a good location. It has good access to the beach and local shops (7-11 shop is just outside of the resort) and good massage shops. Resort provides free shuttle bus to Kata beach in the mornings. It is good value for money.

We stayed here for a week. The room was large, comfy bed, good air con which was a must in this heat, decent size bathroom, complimentary water, free wifi. The resort had three swimming pools but we spent most of our time in the main pool which had a swim up bar. The only negative about the pools is they...

Nice and Clean. Service works well. 2 main pool areas are nice. Althou the "adventure" poolside can be crowded and people "book" the sunbeads before breakfast with their towls just to return after a long time! One wierd thing is "happy hour". You get 2 drinks for the price of one, but even at the same price you can´t order...

Spent in Centara Kata Resort for 14 days with my wife and 1 year old son. Plus: + We booked our stay straight from hotels website.

You could choose from 4 thaifood or 4...

This is a very basic hotel with some ups and downs. Definately the best feature are the pools, but unfortunately also they sufferer from the uninspiring garden settings. Typically you have lush gardens to create the welcomed tropical feel, unfortunately here not. Its just the pools with the buildings just next to them. Restaurants serve low quality food (=crap) /shakes...
