This was our first time in Thailand, 8 nights spent in February. The staff in the hotel were fantastic and made us feel welcome right from the start. Our room was away from the Main Hotel near one of the three pools, but no complaints. It had two large double beds, one each!! The swimming pools had plenty of sun...

We stayed at Centara Karon Resort in March 2017 as a family of four with two small children. Overall, the facilities, location and pricing (by Phuket standards) of the resort were very good. The Thai staff were (as you would expect) very friendly and happy to help as much possible. However, as with everything in life there were some good...

This is the second time we have stayed at Centara Karon, and we were obviously impressed enough to return to the resort 4 years on. Staff are great and always smiling and happy to help, amenities are fantastic and our girls loved spending every day by the pool. It really is a resort that you don't need to leave to...

I have stayed with with my partner for 11 nights. Not impressed at all. First everyone we spoke to gets upgraded, which means nobody gets upgraded and it's just a little white lie. Second, everything in the resort closes at 11, so after that time, no more drinks or food. Third, the hotel is quite expensive, cocktails (240baht) are weak....

We chose Thailand as our honeymoon destination (no regrets of course) and visited Bangkok and Phuket. In Bangkok we had many issues with our excursions and drivers turning up hours later which really frustrated us (nothing to do with the hotel 'Amari Boulevard' was an amazing hotel). We got to Centara Karon resort and my husband got talking to a...
