Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Nestled in a scenic locale, Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi garners mixed reviews from its guests. While the resort's picturesque setting is widely lauded, the experience is sometimes marred by inconsistent service quality, with some staff members receiving praise for their attentiveness and others criticized for inefficiency. Guests are captivated by the stunning room views, yet issues with noise, outdated decor, and maintenance cannot be overlooked. Concerns are also raised regarding the value, as travelers find the prices steep in comparison to the services offered. Despite these criticisms, the overall cleanliness and the range of amenities are appreciated by many visitors.

Comfortable beds, great staff, beautiful resort on its own private island. Excellent meals. Gorgeous views of the sunset. Only thing that was a bit frustrating was getting to and from the island, but it is a private island, of course. A good resort for families, but a lot of couples there, too.

I have stayed at this hotel some years ago and it is still a lovely hotel in a beautiful position. However, the guest bedrooms could do with some refurbishment as they are beginning to look a little tired.

Amazing place for rest. Very friendly staff tamhat help You with all things You need to do or have. Food, drinks and facilities are very nice and in good condition. The only thing hotel staff has to look after is the bad habbit of putting towels to reserve sundeds. It didint make any problems to find one but it looks finny and totally amazing that in such hotel people still do such things.

We were expecting so much from this resort and were extremely disappointed. Definitely not worth 5 stars. The whole place is in need of a revamp . It’s seemed old, tired and unloved. Stair cases are dirty . Restaurant furniture is old. Sun beds are stained. Our balcony hadn’t been swept . We had numerous issues with the room which took time to resolve . The hotel website describes it as a place of tranquility - it’s not - there is constant noise from the dragon boats passing by. Loud music was playing in the pool area when we arrived. The pool is full of children . The views are lovely and the monkey trail is fun although the steps and handrails need some work. We ate in the Thai restaurant one night and the food was lovely . The breakfast is fine but the breakfast dining area needs work . Coast restaurant is but over priced and service was mixed.

We stayed here at the end of January, staff were so good, especially Film, Toffee and King in the pool bar. And the manager Joe, was amazing and really looked after us, as a group of 10. The hotel is unique in the fact that you have to get a boat into Ao Nang, or walk the monkey trail, which is challenging, but ok! We found the hotel expensive, but I guess you are a captive audience, we ate out every evening anyway. We had room 1276 and I would say it was the room with the best sea view in the hotel.

This spa is so beautiful. So first class. We came here once & got ADDICTED, we came every other day during our stay here (8 days). We requested the same masseuses because they were so amazing. Ja & Nana worked magic on me and my husband. We got the couples massage, and today I got the cellulite massage and he got the after sun care massage. We will be back again and I might come back to this resort simply for the spa.

Flown in to Thailand for my Honeymoon. Centara has set the standard pretty high for the rest of my trip in Thailand. Was staying in a room with the bath tub and the view was spectacular. Amenities were equally good and shuttle boats to and fro main island were well organized.
