Close to everything

Great hotel, excellent service & food was spectacular. Very close to everything & heaps of local eating spots with goodcfood. It would have had 5 stars if it had cable TV. Unfortunately Karon beach is not one of the cleaneat or good for swimming. Todd's massage shop in tjexlane outside had the best massages & service around.

Great resort for families

Our family of 7 stayed at Centara Karon the end of September 2016 for 11 nights and we could not fault it.

There are heaps of things to do, especially for kids (any age). Our kids are aged 15 years to 16 months and we never heard "I'm bored" once our whole trip. There are 3 pools, play ground, teen games room with play station, table tennis, pool table, gym and heaps more.

The Carp Diem Team always have some activity going and get everyone involved. The whole team are lovely, our kids particularly liked Petra.

Yes it can be noisy, but lets face it if you wanted quiet and peaceful; you don't choose a resort with a slide. The noise did not bother us at all. Our room was ground floor right next to the Lagoon pool (the one with the slide) and our baby still had a 2 hour sleep everyday.

The service and support staff were great too. Our air conditioner stopped working but someone was there within minutes to fix it. The room was cleaned and made up everyday. There was a huge selection of food at the buffet breakfast every morning.The grounds are neat and tidy. Rooms were nice and spacious. What more could you ask for?

The resort is in a great location. Walk outside of the resort and you experience the real Thailand.
Lots of street vendors selling a variety of things, close by bars and restaurants. There are also lots of places for massages just outside the resort too.

Karon is great because it is not as busy as Patong and there is still just as much to do. You can still get just about anywhere in a taxi or Tuktuk.

Tips for restaurants in Karon: Red Onion - (around the corner from Centara) doesn't look like much but the food is cheap and delicious.
Red Lobster- (opposite the beach) a bit more modern than the red onion, but again cheap and delicious.

Awesome Family Holiday

What an awesome resort!!! Loved everything about it; the location, the rooms (Cabana Room was worth the extra), the food, the staff. Could not fault it at all. Breakfast was the best I've ever had in any hotel ever, variety was unbelievable. Pools were excellent and catered for families and quieter pools for adults. Lovely hotel grounds. The baht bonanza is well worth doing, we ate at the resort for lunch or dinner both every day and this made it very affordable. You have to have banana Nutella pancakes from the carts outside they are amazing . Excellent shopping right outside the resort.
We will definitely be back.

Great holiday!

Centura Karon Beach was a great place to stay. From the moment I arrived and was greeted by the cheerful and efficient front desk staff to my clean and comfortable seaview room at the Terraces I was in holiday mode! Breakfast was delicious with a huge selection. The resort was so large I took my map to find my way around! The 3 pools were great and always clean. It was a 2 min walk to the shops and cafes of Karen and a short stroll to the beach. Highly recommend Centara Karon Beach!

Bit of a disaster when we 1st arrived as they didnt have the rooms we have booked. Took 2 days to get it sorted - but once it was - the holiday was fab. Change of owners probably didnt help!

A nice family getaway

This was a brilliant location for our break - nice pools, grounds etc. Petra, Mia and Leon were an absolute treat providing entertainment for the kids and adults and ensuring everyone had an enjoyable time. Rooms were clean and serviced daily and the buffet breakfast provided a terrific range of options to start the day. I would thoroughly recommend the Centara Karon Resort (we will be back!) to friends as a great place to stay and very good value for money.
One very small issue was when we checked out, we didn't hand in our pool towel vouchers as the process of exchanging pool towels and vouchers changed from day to day (sometimes you needed a voucher, sometimes you didn't) and when we handed 3 towels back but didn't get vouchers in return, they were going to charge us for the pool towels when we checked out - they didn't end up charging us, but they do need to tighten the process but this in no way diminished our thorough enjoyment of staying here.

Great place to stay. Good location.

After a poor beginning, where our room was not ready on arrival, they offered us a so called upgrade, which was at the back of the resort, nowhere near the lagoon which we had booked. After 3 different offers of available rooms all of which were not suitable, we finally got into our room after 7pm. Very dissapointing considering we had booked back in January. Ther than that though the resort was great, was in a good location, staff were great. Would definitely recommend to couples and families.

A great family holiday.

We loved this place. We were on holiday with our 5 young children and Centara Karon Resort was the best option. Our only disappointment was having to pay extra for a ground floor room on arrival. We had requested ground floor and interconnecting rooms. We were given neither option. We ended up with one room on the 2nd floor and one room on the ground floor after paying more. Not the best set up if you need both rooms. We ended up all sleeping in just the one room. Apart from that we has a great stay and will return.

A beautiful place to stay

Really enjoyed our stay in Centara Karon Resort Phuket. The resort is absolutely beautiful with sensational gardens, fantastic restaurant (beautiful food) and excellent facilities. The staff were all friendly, helpful and professional.

The only constructive criticism we could make is that the shower in our room was pretty tired and the timing of the room cleaning was confusing - it would be helpful to know when we needed to vacate our room.

Great value & a great kids pool!

2nd time back at this resort and still a great place to stay!
Front desk & entertainment staff members remembered us from a year ago and welcomed us with smiles!
As per another guests remark, it's a great resort for socialising around the kids pool - another resort in the area they stayed was too quiet for their liking (no atmosphere) and too quiet for the kids. The slide pool has plenty of activity.
Breakfasts are plentiful!!

Another wonderful holiday at Centara

We have stayed at Centara many times. This year with some of our family. Once again we could not fault the service. We were had our room upgraded as we were return guests. although we had been advised previously we did miss the lagoon pool especially as we had our granddaughter with us. But looking forward to next year when it will be better than ever. A great shout out to the children's entertainers, Mia, Veronica, Leon and Drago.

Great friendly staff, cabana room very spacious

Great value resort. Staff very helpful but pool bar service pretty erratic. Good breakfast choices. Located in the centre of Karon so plenty of shops and restaurants around. Spa good but pricey. Only real issue for us was that there was not enough to entertain the kids on rainy days which wouldn't normally be a problem but we had lots of really rainy days so became a bit of a pain in the end. Kids club is good but suited really to under 4s. Restaurant food is ok but plenty of cheaper and better options near by. Lagoon pool would be great for families but was out of action for renovations when we stayed. I'd recommend for families once that gets sorted out. Cabana rooms are really nice and spacious

Wonderful Resort

Value for money, excellent meals regardless of what type of dining you choose. Some of the best hospitality staff I have ever come across whilst travelling. I recommend you take up the resorts offer of buying 10000 baht & receiving 15000 baht to spend within the resort at all dining & bar areas it makes their prices competitive.

Resort was good

We went to Phuket to have a nice relaxing holiday which we had. The resort is under going construction at the moment and it was so loud with workers, machines etc that we had to ask to move our room. They have erected a huge big green tin fence right around the construction site which is around the heart of the resort. The resort lost all atmosphere once that happened. It was quite dark and dreary. The first room we had was quite shabby with old furniture and dirty linen. The balcony was dirty with broken balustrading and tiles. The second room was a lot better. We had a lovely garden out side our room with a nice balcony to sit outside. The roomed seemed bigger and was a lot cleaner. We couldn't hear the noise inside our room but from the balcony and in the pool it was very loud. We were situated in the Tropical Rooms and spent most of our time around the Tropix Pool. The food was nice and the staff were also very nice. The gardens were lovely. We also had a massage in the Spa which was also really good. It was just a shame about the noise and mess from the construction site which was awful.

Relaxing!

I have stayed at Centara Karon Resort 5 times now and it never disappoints!
A great atmosphere, with lots of great restaurants, from great local cuisine at great value, but also some great western style restaurants and plenty for those with more expensive tastes as well.
Plenty of activities provided at the hotel for those with children, and the staff are amazing.
Close enough to Patong to be part of the action, but far enough away to be a bit more relaxing, and the surrounding scenic areas are fabulous.
Would highly recommend for anyone wanting a great holiday :)

Basic Resort

There were issues with check-in as reception wanted to "upgrade" our rooms to rooms that were in no way an upgrade. One of our group's rooms was unavailable and they had no choice but to take the "upgrade". We had requested adjoining rooms and they were not only, not adjoining they were on different floors (not particularly helpful when we booked the two rooms so our six year old could sleep in one). After a long flight spending an hour trying to negotiate with reception just to get what we had paid for seemed unfair. Especially as we had booked four months in advance and had booked four rooms for our group of 7 people.
The terrace rooms and the pool cabanas were nice the other room types are in need of an update.
The three pools were nice, especially the kids pool which my son loved. Breakfast was nice also.
The Carpe Diem entertainment team were the highlight, you could see they were committed to customer service and were a great, light hearted addition to the resort.
The best thing about the resort was the location, Karon beach is much quieter and there were great restaurants within a few minutes walk from the resort.
As long as you stay in the terrace rooms or the pool cabana, insist on having the room type you booked and be prepared that it may not be available, don't expect interconnecting rooms to be provided and are happy with a 3.5 - 4 star resort experience you will enjoy this family oriented resort.

Perfect 10 days at Centara Karon

Absolutely loved our stay at the Centara Karon, we were a family of 2a and 2c in a 1 bedroom cabana.
The cabana was gorgeous, very spacious with 2 big beds, the added extras in the cabana were really lovely and well received.
We were right next to the Spa, which was lovely and very serene, the spa girls were all very friendly and the treatment I had was very enjoyable and reasonably priced.
We spent most of our time around the Lagoon pool which was great for the kids. The Carpe Diem team were amazing and once they met you were super friendly and great with the kids. DJ, Leon, Veronica, Maria and Kimmi were lots of fun, as was Drago but we didn't see him as much. They activities they organised for Songkran were lots of fun and we really enjoyed then. I would have liked to see an extra activity for the kids in the morning and also more activities like the pirate activities as these were the kids favourite. The kids club was very sedate and my kids (5 & 7) didn't like to be in there. It was also quite expensive for the crafts (500baht to paint 2 glasses - which the staff did most of the kids said).
Breakfast was delicious and varied and always lots of choice to set you up for the day.
Deen at concierge was amazing, my kids loved him, he remembered their names and always asked how they were and gave them rides to the room - he was a great 1st impression to welcome you to the hotel.
The only issue we had was that the toilet kept blocking in our room but they dealt with it promptly and efficiently. A reminder not to put toilet paper down the toilet should also be in the room.
We ate at Azure and the food (especially the satay sticks) was great, drinks were good at the pool bar but my only gripe was the 10% service charge and the 7% tax on everything rocketed prices up.
We also drank in the mix bar and the garden bar - the the garden bar cocktails were better value than the happy hour drinks in the mix (they were very weak!)
Overall the hotel was excellent and all the staff and facilities were too!
We would definitely love to return!

Great holiday

My only negative feedback on Centara Karon Resort is that our room was a little tired, needed a paint job, had a few chips of paint on the walls, and it probably wasn't the best room, as it was right near the lift and next to the storage room, so could be quite noisy, not a great view from the balcony either, we overlooked the entrance.
Besides that I can't fault the resort, its in a great location, and fantastic service!

Great location, great value

We have 4 children aged between 7 and 16 and find this hotel to be wonderful value and it is in a fantastic location as you have massage places, mini mart, chemist and many restaurants just outside your hotel. I feel the service was a lot better this stay from our previous holiday in 2012, the staff are always friendly but I found it to be far more efficient this holiday which is great. We didn't utilise the Carpe Diem team too much as we were always out but these guys do a wonderful job keeping the kids entertained and are always friendly and helpful. The only negatives I would have is I think the pool swim up bars could do with having a happy hour every day rather than only 1 day and the egg station at the buffet breakfast could be position in a better place as it can get a bit crowded with people waiting for omelettes and people trying to get to the toasters and pastries. Overall this hotel is fantastic and would highly recommend, thank again Centara Karon.

Friendly and fun are the 2 words that come to mind. Ideal for us with boys aged 6 and 3 (suits families with children older and younger than that. Comfortable spacious room, 3 fantastic pools, great events and Karon on your doorstep. Choose to relax in your oasis of a resort or involve yourself in the shopping and action of Phuket - the best of both worlds.

We had so much fun!

The resort is stunning and the staff amazing. we had an amazing time. The food was good, the resort was beautiful and entertainment good. We were a bit disappointed that they cancelled the Asian night on short notice as a result of a conference - we missed out :-(

We will definitely be back.

Fantastic holiday resort

Centra is a fantastic resort especially for families, couples, and really anyone.
The facilities they provide would suit all.
Location to shopping areas is just outside the gate and beach is less than 400 metres away.
A great place to stay.

Great stay

Great resort. Location is good. Not far from the beach. But close enough to many restaurants and shops. On arrival they didn't have the room we booked, but they offered to switch us to the higher level cabana room after two nights and gave us a free dinner at the restaurant. Great service, very nice room and highly recommended.

Good value

This was a great stay for families! Lagoon pool is perfect depth for children. Many restaurants and shops right outside the resort and beach a very short stroll away. Karon is a quieter area if you want to escape the business of Patong.
Staff were always friendly & courteous.

Very good

The resort was very nice we stayed in the lagoon deluxe we had connecting rooms and were as expected over looking the pool from the 3rd floor which was nice.
Check in was a breeze and taken to our room and informed as to where everything was on the way to the room.
The buffet breakfast was superb plenty of choice for my fussy 3 children.
Plenty of choice for evening food outside the hotel
We all had a very good holiday

Good resort that caters for all

This is a good resort with a wide range of facilities that makes it good for all types of travellers. It has three pool areas that cater to those with young children, couples and those who are looking for a quieter time. The slides in the kids pool were a huge hit with the kids. The "Entertainers" did a great job putting on activities - especially for Song Kran (Thai New Years). The resort is in Karon Beach so the choices of restaurants/bars outside the resort is limited compared with Patong and Kata. However there are still quite a number of good choices available.

Perfect with kids

This was a relaxing holiday. Some days we didn't even leave the resort. The beach was a short walk away, but with 3 pools we were well catered for. The buffet breakfasts were extensive and fresh. The buildings are old but rooms have been refurbished and were very comfortable.

Fantastic family fun

My husband and I just returned from Phuket and stayed at this resort with our 2 9 year olds and one 11year old plus other families. We all had a great time. The kids were well entertained by the friendly entertainment staff and facilities for kids. They especially liked the Lagoon pool with the water slides. All staff were friendly and the service was great. The kids loved the games with prizes every day, pool aerobics, and tennis, water polo and basketball competitions each day. Meals were good but on the pricey side as there was an added tax and service charge for food and drinks. We all had a great holiday staying at the Centara resort and would recommend it for anyone to stay there.

Great location - would stay there again

The location of Karon resort can't be beaten. With an irish pub, restaurants, transport, massages and shopping straight outside, you really don't need to go anywhere to find anything if you don't want to. Great for families, the lagoon pool is fantastic, my teenagers loved this place too and made friends both their own age and younger which kept them exhausted. We would definitely stay there again. Our room was explained as \"Deluxe at the lagoon\" which was directly opposite the lagoon pool and steps away from the Bar (always good). LOVED IT.

Relaxed and recharged

Loved the resort, kids had a ball in the pools and with all the games and activities. Tennis and Basketball could be free though. Location is great with market, massage and restaurants just outside the gates. The family suites could do with a bit of privacy between the beds and there is plenty of room to do 2 singles rather than the kids having to share a double bed.

Centara Karon Resort Phuket

A lovely place to stay. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Quiet location but easy access to local shops and restaurants. Very clean and tidy. A variety of pools - would have been nice to have a 'no kids' pool - but they did tend to use the pool with a slide most so all good! More free wifi would have been helpful. Khob Khun kup!

Wow! What a wonderful resort

Centara Karon Resort is a terrific place to stay for everyone. They have 3 pools lots of activities, the breakfast is wonderful and all other food is good to.
The rooms are a good size and staff are great. The best part was for kids - the pool in the Lagoon section is a wonderment of slides and bridges, soccer nets and safe depths for children to stay in. In a good location at Karon with easy access to shops, restaurants and bars. Would recommend this hotel for a terrific stay.

Fabulous pools!

Loved the pools but unfortunately due to the time of the year we couldn't swim at the beach, far too dangerous. Great resort but if a couple and to get away from the lovely screaming children its best to hang out at the Tropicale Pool which was great and the breakfast was fantastic and the food gets changed around most days for more choice. Would happily stay here again!!

Fantastic Resort!

My friend and I stayed for 4 nights in December, 2012. Centara Karon Resort was excellent. There were 3 pools to choose from, catering for children, couples and families! The breakfast was divine with a large selection of foods. The rooms were beautiful, really modern and quiet. I would recommend Centara to everyone!
