We are just spending our last night at the Centara. Yes it needs some maintenance but this seems to be taking place now. In fact two floors are being renovated (disappointedly no one told us it would be going on during our stay, loads of noise but one just gets on with it). The shower does run hot and cold but its not every time.
The worst bit for us was arrival where it took over an hour to get checked in. Thankfully there were two other English speaking couples in the same predicament so we chatted the time away.
Our room on the 7th floor in the main hotel was nice and the beds comfy (don't get the hard bed bit in other reviews). The standard of cleaning was excellent.
The staff in the hotel are so friendly which has to be hard for them to be like this 24/7 especially when they have to work full time all year round now.
We used the Terrace pool area which was nice and quiet, fresh towels whenever you wanted. The food we ate here was lovely. Yes the price is a tad higher than other bars in the resort but it is a borderline 4 star hotel.
Wifi is free if you sign up for the Centara card which is a no brainer. Breakfast at the Lotus is excellent. Loved the coffee. My wife loved the omelettes, made while you watched.
The reception staff are very helpful and speak excellent English. My wife and I like to go somewhere different every year so I don't think we will return. However for others reading this review take it from us that you will not regret staying here.
