We stayed at the Centara for 10 beautiful days in a Family Deluxe Lagoon room. My wife and I have a 13 year old daughter and a 10 year old son. We found the room very spacious, clean and well appointed. We lived here comfortably for the 10 days. The resort itself was excellent in every respect. The staff were extremely helpful, even though some had only broken English. By speaking slowly and using less complicated vocabulary, one could easily be understood. Our kids spent most of the days in the resort pool when we weren't touring. They both loved the slide and made lots of friends while swimming around. The breakfasts were very good. There was a huge variety of foods to chose from, including cereals, fresh fruits, hot food (eggs, bacon, fried rices, omelettes, vegetables), a good assortment of breads and jams, as well as various danishes & croissants. As my sister and her family were staying in the two-bedroom cabana (luxury plus!), we had a BBQ which was cooked by one of the chefs from the resort. It was really worthwhile and the food was excellent, especially the huge prawns! Try it out if you are staying in a cabana! We also took part in the 'Pool Party Night', where lots of water games with prizes were organised by the staff for kids and adults a like. Small band, singers, music and heaps of fun! Watch out for the 'Lip, Sip, Suck girls' who come around with tequilla. It onlys costs 50 Baht a glass - great fun! For dinner there was a selection of 'pool food' such as chips, hamburgers cooked on the BBQ (delicious!), hotdogs, chicken sticks and salads. Very reasonably priced at only 200 Baht. It was a great night and we meet lots of other Australians guest at the resort. The resort grounds are beautifully maintained. The best thing about this resort is it is located right in the heart of Karon, only a short stroll to the beach. We ate out at the local restaurants most nights which are just a stone's throw from the resort. There are small supermarkets, a chemist, pub, plenty of massage places (ahhhhh!), tourist kiosks (use these as they can get some good deals for you), a barber (a nice bloke!) and lots of tourist shops. A lot of other resorts we stopped into when picking up other guests for tours, were quite isolated from the shopping areas and would required a tuk tuk every time to get into the heart of town. Centara Karon is right there in the midst of everything! When we go back to Phuket, we will be going back to Centara for sure because of it's location and the quality of the resort! It's a great place for kids and for couples! Highly recommended!
