Stayed here for 5 nights for 10000 THB with breakfast. We got a room facing the Centara Villas' pool area and the hills, so it was nice and quieter than the other facing which has the street view & the higher floors on 5th & 6th have a partial view of the sea. Liked the convenience to shops, restaurants & amenities at the doorstep. Karon beach which I think is the nicest beach amongst Patong, Kata & Kamala, is just 5 mins walk away. If you are more interested in shopping, you're better off staying in Patong & then going over to Karon beach for the occasional daytrip to the beach since it costs 300 THB one way with tuk tuk. The room was big and roomy with comfortable beds. The bathroom was clean and spacious. There's a balcony to sit out and enjoy the view. If not for the Centara's air conditioner fans and generator located next to the hotel, it would have been perfect. The staff was very helpful and friendly.
