We went to the Centara Grand in June 2013. We were very unlucky because it rained every day, some time for hours. Usually the rainy season is in May and September. Anyway, we are great fans of the Centara hotel group. It was our first time to visit this hotel. It is really a beautiful hotel. Its all held in Spanish style, our room had an deluxe seaview style with hugh balcony but no jakuzzi (who needs this on the balcony?). We spent many hours relaxing on the balcony while watching the storms passing by. We travelled with our kid, for children its a great hotel. A hugh swimming pool area with sliders, lazy river, sand. The indoor kids club was the largest we have ever seen with all kinds of toys and entertainment. Great we could leave our child there under free supervision of friendly staff. The beach was remote due to storm it was impossible to swim, the waves were hugh. The breakfast was very good. The seafood dinner was so so.
The only negative point for us was the location. There is nothing around the hotel not even a single shop. You need to get taxi or walk 1km to Karon. In Phuket the taxis are all held in control by a sort of Mafia and they fix the prices. To Patong beach you pay 300 Baht one way! Lucky we had a rental car during our stay and we highly recommend to rent a car, otherwise you are really dependent on taxi or your legs...
