“Fantastic place for family holidays”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

When we were there last year they were renovating the place. Now we spent another 10 days there and all the building work has been finished. What a marvelous place it has become. Everything you Need for happy Family Holidays is available: three pools (two of them huge, one with a slide), beautiful beach, good restaurants and a cosy bar, game rooms, Fitness Studio and wonderful thai style Bungalows in very well kept surroundings. A big compliment to the friendly and welcoming staff (Special thanks to Manager Khun Manop whose good command of English is very helpful). The Price for four was excellent and very competitive. The Centara Seaview Resort Khao Lak is on top of our list of Hotels to be visited again.

Room Tip: Ask for a Bungalow with two roofs. We love those in the rear of the compund, close to the biggest po...

The centara seaview is much less than it likes to be. They have very friendly staff, nice but not phantastic pools with one boring slide.

We booked a deluxe room, backside area. It was big enough for two adults and a child. The room was very clean but had some disadvantages. The fridge roars like a tuktuk (all night long), the balcony door does not close right, a big welcome for the mosquitos and at last the aircon isn't quiet at all.

The biggest negative point are the prices for beverages, food and icecream inside the resort. They charge that much, that they have almost no guests in the restaurants, sport- and poolbars. The listed expensive prices are topped with VAT and service fee. Remember, they call themselve "Resort". It feels like we were squeezed like lemons!

The greatest insolence is the kidsclub. One rainy morning we went there to play and tinker with our sweetheart. They have nice little plaster figures to paint on, the figures size is about one smartphone. And guess what: they charged us 250 THB for that! Hey, it's a kidsclub, which is usually for free!

To Centara Management:
It is by far not enough to have a friendly staff. As a guest we felt more like a hunted moneytarget than a welcome traveller. If you lower you prices to the level of the surrounding shops and stores you will gain customer satisfaction, raise your turnover and finally make more profit.

To come to an end, there is much to improve. Unfortunately no one ask at checkout if we had a pleasant stay.

We never come back.

Stayed here in February and loved the place! The resort is big with a lot of activities, huge pool areas, tennis court, spa, kid's club, gym... And the location is excellent with the main road with restaurants and shops at a short walking distance. The hotel had a nice restaurant by the beach, somewhat pricey but very good. Also, the breakfast has a nice variety to choose from. We tried some other restaurants as well, most by the main road. A very good restaurant was Phu Khaolak, maybe 300 m to the right from the hotel, on the main road. Lemuan and Kang seafood were also nice.

I found the staff at Seaview to be very friendly and helpful, always tried to do their best to help if we needed anything. Special thanks to Mr Chuck. All areas were well maintained and kept clean. Pool areas had plenty of sunbeds. By the beach they had volleyball and you could even rent a canoe (didn't try that though). We loved the beach wehere you could sit under the trees in the shade after swimming. Also, in the evening they brought colourful beanbag chairs to the beach, so you could enjoy the lovely sunset. A nice little extra from the hotel. Kid's club had many activities and a games room with wii and Playstation.

We had a villa with a private pool and our boys (6 and 9) loved it. The villa was very spacey, had two showers and a bathtub. It was cleaned every day and the pool was checked daily. I can definately recommend it if you want a bit of extra luxury...

Our boys wanted to see the jungle and the closest was to visit Lamru national park, 5 min by taxi. Pay a small entrance fee and you can take a hike in the jungle and end up at a wonderful beach. So bring a towel, you might want to stay a bit longer enjoying the beach.

I would love to stay here again, to enjoy the warm evenings and the relaxed athmosphere. Thank you Seaview for a wonderful experience!

I was there for two nights and could be more longer if i can. The resort was located in the quiet and peaceful. It is big resort.

Breakfast was ok with many varieties of option. I like smoothie bar.
Room was clean and comfortable sleep. It was big room with twin bed with terrace garden.
Evening times go out for walk around and there were shop and restaurant surrounding the area.
Beach side was stunning with find sand and quite private beach. Do not miss the sunset there, so beautiful.

Main swimming pool was beautiful.

Wow this place is really so well facilitated!
Firstly, our villa was lovely and so roomy. The bath tub was awesome! We had a villa one back from the beach. Actually I preferred this as it was more private, and the scorching sun wasnt so intense. The room was really well maintained, in fact I was amazed how well kept the entire property was as it it is a large and spacious property.
The breakfast was a great spread including smoothies lovely tropical fruits, large hot selection and local fare.
We also had pizzas during our stay, they were really delicious. Compliments to Chef!
There are many pools across the property, and if you have kids this is a perfect place to stay.
The Spa.....which has just been renovated was amazing - the standard of spa in Thailand is high but Centara tops it.
We had the signature treatment, with a steam room, sauna and an Andaman sea sand scrub beforehand. This was the highlight of our stay. Incredibly good massage, just loved the Spa.

All up I could have done with a few more days here. It was a fun and diverse resort, staff were lovely and it had a nice social feeling.

I cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: book plenty of time here, there is so much to do in this resort if you want variety!

as i have been in a few centaras already i was expecting a top hotel. the checkin in and out took a lot of time lobby was nice but i could not get away the impression that they were not well trained. unfortunately we got the room which were at the end of the hotel complex, nice family friendly rooms but only 25 meters from mc donalds. the pool are great but not very clean but good for families. breakfast was medium nothing special at all . overall was ok but was defenetely expecting more from centara. we will try other hotel in khoa lak.
