Nice family resort, staff were very friendly. We took the baht bonanza offer and it was worth it, definitely recommend it to everyone. The grounds were well kept and just beautiful. Lots of choices for breakfast, we loved the Roti...yum! Our rooms were in the Tropicale block next to the club lounge, thanx to Khun Supaporn for putting us there. Kids loved the pools, especially the Lagoon pool with the slides...a big hit! We will definitely return to this resort again.

We've visited Centara Karon with a large group of friends, made up of families, couples and singles. Good fun was had by all, and the resort is large enough to find a quiet space if you wanted time to yourself. Tropicale pool is quite deep at one end, so there aren't as many children here.

The kids love the pool with the slippery slides (lagoon pool), and it's not too deep that you feel you have to watch them all the time. The pool bars are more expensive than normal, but you can't beat a swim up bar and happy hour = 2 for the price 1 for two hours every afternoon.

Our group stayed in the all the separate locations:
1. Rooms in the tower have all been done up, and have a nice breeze and view
2. The villa's are very private and large, but can be slightly dark as they have lots of lovely trees throughout with outdoor showers.
3. The Lagoon rooms all look over the slippery slide pool are and are great for families with smaller children
4. The tropicale rooms are quite large, a little older, but everything you need for a holiday. If you have kids, the steps are quite skinny, so they are a little harder to get up to the top floor, maybe request a lower room if you have a stroller (although many leave them down stairs and they are never touched).

Karon possibly isn't the best town on phuket, but it has all the favourites such as massage, shopping and lots of eating places. It's not big, but it's not too far into Patong or down to Kata. Plus it also has local markets on a Tuesday and Saturday night at the temple and the prices are quite good.

Would definately return to this resort if we had a larger group or family. The staff were lovely, the breakfast is great (but take aeroguard), the meals at any of the pool bars are very reasonable, the gym is good and they have lessons on many days, such as yoga or tai chi.

Thanks to all the staff who looked after us.

Room Tip: Ground floors at lagoon and tropicale are great if you want to go to and from the pool with kids.

This is an amazing hotel!! Beautifully set out & landscaped the pools, bars, restaurants etc are sensational. You would seriously never have to leave the resort if you didn't want to! Each night they have different theme's in the restaurants, from Beers & Burgers to Seafood Market night, Pool party fun & traditional Thai night. The rooms are spacious and well fitted out. We were travelling as a family of 4 plus my mother-in-law. The 1st night they couldn't put us in rooms connecting but were gracious in offering us a few different options for the 1 night, then we moved the next day... This resort is a children's paradise - the water slides are a massive hit! The location would have to be the best in Karon. Step out the resorts front door and you are in the middle of everything - shop, eat, drink, relax...everything is at your doorstep & the beach is an easy 4 minute stroll. Highly recommend to anyone!

We arrived here and was impressed with the hotel until we got to our room! The room smelt very damp and after an hour I asked to be moved. The room we were given was lovely completely the opposite to the first.

On our final night there was a lot of noise from the local irish bar which kept me awake most of the night, at one point I found myself singing along to a bit on Bon Jovi at 3am. Obviously this is no fault of the hotel although when you have a flight the next morning it's really not good.

The restaurant on site was amazing, our rep told us not to eat here as it was expensive a sudden storm meant we could go nowhere else and I'm so glad we were trapped as this was the best meal we had during our ten night tour of Thailand, BTW a three course meal and drinks cost us £15!!!

Sawasdee pearlydrops,
Thanks for providing a review from your recent stay. I was delighted you found our resort offered the "perfect location" and you were impressed with the hotel on arrival. I am sorry your first room was damp (May is our most tropical / humid time of year but agreed your room should be well aired and Im delighted we were able to provide an alternate room immediately. It was also pleasing your found our restaurant to be 'amazing'!
