I cannot believe that no one on previous reviews mentioned this, but WARNING !!!!!!! , building work ! , this resort is under refurb quite extensively.
It gets worse, Karon beach which is reviewed on lots of sites as miles of beautiful sandy beach is in fact littered terribly with rubbish and debris , above and beyond a bit of tourist litter, enough to spoil any romantic stroll, and it is quite a stroll, 25 minutes to centre of karon , at night its not a route you can take due to tides.
It gets worse, the northern tip of the beach now has a wacking big water/sewage outlet pipe from the BUILDING WORKS , complete with 2x swing arm cranes that dominate this aspect of the beach , this is the area closest to Centara Villas.As the main selling point of CENTARA villas is a quiet get away for romance away from the bustle of Patong ,there is currently nothing to go for.
I could not reccomend anyone staying there at this time, give a wide birth for at least 12 months from now.
Karon is a 2nd rate Patong , ie southport to blackpool , it is not a quiet chilled out trendy village with aspects of real thai life.
staff at resort friendly but not quite as profficient as other places at which i have stayed. Tuk tuks essential to get anywhere, even to buy a bottle of water. 300 baht each way - its a dear bottle of water!

The resort also offers hands-on Thai cooking classes, and two restaurants and a bar that boast sublime ocean views. The tour desk can arrange activities such as island-hopping and family treks.
