Resort hotel with 2 pools, 2 restaurants (one wasn't open during our stay but we were there in September, it's not a high season), pool bar. Excellent breakfast with variety of food - I loved it that chefs will cook you eggs as per your request! Bed mattresses are great, so are pillows. Huge pool with a pool bar, and one can order food directly from sunbeds. Staff is great, welcoming and always ready to help

Very friendly and helpful staff. We’re able to extend our stay with no problems, when our Jetstar flight cancelled. Great quiet location, but close to restaurants, the beach and shops. Had a thoroughly relaxing time with family.

It was lovely to be back after a 2 year break. The staff at the resort are still super friendly and welcoming. We stayed in a premium deluxe pool view room for 10 nights. The room was clean and tidy and it was only about a 10 step Walk to the pool. The tropicale pool is very large and most days there was only about 4 or 5 other people besides us.

Dear cpdunn64, Thank you for your returning visit and for leaving an excellent review here in this forum. We all pleased to know that you still enjoy your stay, and more importantly appreciated services encountered with our staffs. I do agree that our Tropix pool is very suitable for adult with the calmer atmosphere while the Lagoon one probably greater for kids and more lively. Having two separate pools is one of our most positive comments. Look forward to your third visit in the near future! Sincerely yours, Ball General Manager

We had the most wonderful time at this resort - all three generations of us. The staff have been amazing as usual, the grounds are in beautiful condition & the pools & rooms sparkling clean. Food in the Azure Restaurant was of high quality & plentiful & the cocktails & mocktails around the pool were enjoyed by us all. Covid has not been kind in Karon as many of the local restaurants & businesses are closed but we could not fault the resort. Thank you Centara - this was our fifth visit & although we are sorry to be leaving we will be back.

We booked Centara Karon Resort for 5 nights. Hotel fittings are a bit dated but overall stay was great for the price. Bed is comfy, wide variety for breakfast spread and ample entertainment within the hotel (pool table, indoor/outdoor playground and a nice kids' pool). Our room's aircond seems to be a bit broken, we can never get the temperature correct so it was freezing cold by morning but it is minor issue for us so we did not report it. Nonetheless, I want to give a shoutout to front office staffs (Charlyne, Grong, Lot and Ming) for going above and beyond. They managed to allow us to extend a late check-out at 5pm for our two rooms at 1000 baht (1 for 1 deal). This kind gesture is very helpful for our child to be properly rested before our flight 8pm flight home. Hotel is about 10mins slow walk to the beach but do note that the whole town has been shut down for almost 2yrs so many restaurants and even Jungceylon in Patong were closed. So night entertainment is quite limited at Karon town.

Although the rooms could do with a refurb, especially the bathrooms as quite dark. The hotel and facitliies itself were great. Post covid we noticed alot of things were still closed ie 2/3 of the pools, tower rooms, and the main restaurant however having never been there before we didn't know any different. All grounds were well maintained and staff were wonderful. Special mention to Haris at the Pool Bar for his amazing service and always with a smile, also Sao at the kids club. Our kids were very sad to say goodbye, you have certainly been a highlight of their trip.

This was our first experience of Thailand and a long haul flight for us as a family. We loved every moment of our stay from the moment we stepped off the plane. Everybody we interacted with were extremely friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The hotel had not long reopened after the Covid pandemic and they worked hard in ensuring it was a safe environment. The lagoon pool was ideal for our children and they entertained themselves for hours in it each day, the swim up bar was a firm favourite for us adults! The pool towels were an excellent idea and meant on our last day we weren't trying to pack wet towels. We only experienced the Azure restaurant for breakfast but the amount of food available was of brilliant quality and high standard. Our family pool view room was spacious and kept clean everyday. We would highly recommend a stay at a Centara hotel and feel you won't be disappointed.

I stayed for 7 nights in a pool view room as part of a Jetstar package. I could Not have been happier with the value for money of the resort facilities (love the swim up bars), rooms (spacious, and cleaned daily), location walking distance Central location, and walking distance to lots of bars/restaurants, shopping and beach & tuktuks. The staff are so friendly and helpful. I can’t wait to come back.
