“Good hotel and location”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

We really enjoyed our stay at the Centara Karon Resort Phuket for our honeymoon. We stayed in a Deluxe lagoon room, which was very large room with great views over looking the pool. The property had two large pools, both with swim up bars!
The location of this hotel was great, 2 minute walk out of the property and you're on the streets on Karon. If you're not in for the party of Patong then this is the place we thought still had it all - lots of restaurants and a number of pubs on your door step. Suitable for couples and families.
We enjoyed the food at the hotel - Western type food was more expensive, where as the Thai food was cheaper.
We would recommend this property, and would go back if we were in this part of the world again.

Room Tip: If you can afford to pay extra, I would suggest booking a Deluxe lagoon room. Lovely views over the...

Very nice resort. Most staff were wonderful, helpful and friendly. Reception staff were the least helpful. Bar staff were amazing. Cleaners were wonderful, especially if you leave a tip 9as we did every day).Great rooms, one with club access (not worth the extra money though). Both rooms were very well appointed, clean and spacious. Hotel is in an excellent position with many shops and restaurants near by.Just a short walk to the beach also. Staff delivered a cake for both our birthday's (two days apart).

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are best if you don't like to cart shopping up flights of stairs.

Good resort without being spectacular. The pools were great. Cocktails and food were ordinary. Room was clean, housekeeping and staff in general were friendly and efficient. Sadly the food was poor and the cocktails were sugary disasters.

Room Tip: Room was overlooking one of the pools and was nice and quiet.

My husband and I absolutely LOVED this hotel. This stay was for our honeymoon and we were in the tower in a suite with Jaccuzi on the balcony which was amazing, great views over the local area and then the beach. The staff were all so friendly and eager to help. Amazing food, we ate at each restaurant and had room service a number of times. Each time we tried something different and it was all delicious. My husband loves spicy food, and I can't handle anything too spicy, the food always came out just as we asked for it! We were joking at the end of the trip about how much we thought our room bill was going to come to after quite a few trips to the swim up bar and resteraunts and room service and spa trips, and were amazed when we received a bill less than half what we had each guessed! Great value for money, great location, great staff, great spa, great pools, great rooms... We couldnt fault the Centara Karon for our honeymoon. We are currently planning another trip now and it was very hard to pull us away from visiting Phuket and Cenara Karon again!!

Great huge hotel with all you need. Several pools, a breakfast at the size of a dinners, lotes of fresh fruit and great food. There is a spa in the resort as well and it was very good. Prices are nice as always in thailand. They even had a driver who drove you to your room ( it's that big) (and it was electric so no noice) The gym was just enough and the city/beach is within a walking distance where you can get more massage, cheap food or anything you need.

Room Tip: Get a ocean view :)

We stayed in 3 hotels while in Phuket, Centara Karon was my favourite. The location is great, a block from beach, sooo many good restaurants nearby.. We ate at bamboo house and the little mermaid - they were great. Make sure you go up to the sky lounge, awesome views at sunset! We thought we'd go see what it was about - so glad we did. Very pretty. Great massage place around corner - nims massage I think! Near karon cafe. 3 pools! 1 for families so great if you do/don't have kids. Staff were so polite and friendly. Even gave me a birthday cake for my birthday (although it was my boyfriends birthday the day we arrived and he didn't get one! But we shared :) probably as booking was in my name). Gym was good. Buffet breakfast was amazing! I loved it!! Happy hour was great. Plenty of chairs at pool and customers didn't seem to reserve chairs.. I loved this place for atmosphere, the other places we stayed in patong were newer and more modern but didn't have the same friendly, Thai feel. If you're happy with furniture that isn't brand new I would definitely recommend staying here!
