I would love to write a detailed review about our stay at Centara, but that can wait. Here is a quick excerpt.
I was very confused early on about where to stay given the number of mixed reviews. Few things I was clear about were - it should be a five star, should be next to the beach, should be safe, and should be big enough so that we can hang around in the hotel itself when we don't feel like going out. Centara turned out to be the perfect match.
We were there for our honeymoon and Centara was a surprise for my wife. While making the reservation, I had requested a room in building # 9. The hotel staff kept room # 947 for us (which I believe was the most private). If you are seeking privacy, building # 9 is the way to go.
The staff, restaurants, food (buffet), bars, pools etc. were very good and what you would expect at a 5 star property.. The location couldn't have been perfect. It wasn't very crowded, but we had to just walk few minutes to get to the thick of action. Patong also wasn't very far and we visited Patong for 3 nights (between 7pm and 1am).
