We spent 4 nights at Centara in the Deluxe beachfront villa and boy, we were a bit disappointed. We had just arrive from mirihi where we had a wonderful stay and had equally high expectations. We were disappointed on several factors. The hotel is really new, so new that I can still smell the paint and the cements. There was too much construction on the island and hence, it did not give the feeling of being on a natural island but felt like staying on mainland. The room still showed signs of paint smears and dirt. The jacuzzi was really nice but it was outside and there was no walkway to connect the room to the jacuzzi except to walk through dirt and sand. The view from the room was blocked with 3 layers of sandbags and 3 trees so practically, we could not even see the beach from the room. There was also sandbags everywhere around the island. The sand was also not that nice.
The food was so-so and in my opinion, more like a three-star hotel compared to a 4 or 5 star. The All-inclusive package include some soft drinks and cocktails which were so-so. The pool bar was nice and I spent a lot of time at the pool and the pool bar. Snorkelling is non-existent with too much stones and no corals.
It was a relaxing holiday but Centara can do so much better.
