This was a great place to stay with kids. Rooms were modest but had all you needed - aircon was good!! Breakfast was really good but rest of the meals were very average - we ate out every time except for breakfast after one lunch at the Waves Grill! Grisly meat patties in burgers, fish and chips was really awful... More

Enjoyed our stay here. Clean and efficient. Nice and central. Breakfast was good and staff friendly. Rooms comfortable and pools gReat for the kids. Even though room was right next to the pool bar, it didn't bother us from a noise perspective.

Centara Kata is the perfect familiy hotel. Big pol area and great breakfast included. Staff was friendly and helpfull. The room we rented was a bit small for a familiy, so I do recommend an upgrade if you are a familiy. Free towels by the pool. The beach is a bit far away from the hotell, but you can go... More

Room was clean, nice pools but breakfast selection is seriously poor. Also once there was bombs in the area we couldn't leave the hotel so I ate there for 2 days straight and got extremely sick from their food. Do not expect to get sick from a 4 star hotel. Do not recommend staying here.

Here's a balanced view after spending a week in this resort. Positives: Clean, basic rooms - cleaned daily and functional. Good location for beaches & Kata shops, restaurants etc - we didn't use the hotel beach shuttle as it was easily walked each day, only a few minutes by foot. Good selection of massage places in Kata - my husband... More

Very good room, which was well-serviced. Resort pools are clean. Restaurants offer excellent food. The staff were very friendly and helpful with everything we needed. The resort is within walking distance from Kata Beach and all the Kata restaurants and shops.
