We just returned from a 10 day stay at the Centara Grand with our two children, aged 8 and 6 and I cannot say anything bad about the resort at all.
We had a corner room with a huge verandah and spa, with all of us in the one room and it was beautiful, no complaints at all. Anything we asked for, we received.
The pools were beautiful, huge, and the kids had an absolute ball. The pool attendants were fantastic and played with the kids, knew them all by name and were generally really helpful.
We ate every morning at the restaurant buffet and found the range to be excellent. I have noticed other people saying it was super busy - I didn't find that at all, maybe we went earlier than most!
We ate only once at the Italian restaurant, which was lovely, but didn't try the buffet dinners at all. Instead we would either walk into Karon - about a 10 minute walk, or eat at one of the little restaurants down by the beach - beautiful and cheap.
All in all we had a fabulous holiday at the Centara and would definitely recommend it to others, especially good for families. Yes, it is a big resort, and yes, there are probably some things that could do with minor repairs, but all in all we loved it.
