The 1st, 2nd and 3rd times we visited here the hotel was called the Islandia. Now Centara Karon and heavily modified. Great complex with 3 swimming pools. Great pool for kids with good slides. Clean, tidy rooms. Good variety for breakfast. Eating out is not a problem for all ages, plenty of local hostelries and bars very close by. Only...

The resort was nice, we were upgraded to a deluxe room by the pool as our air con was faulty in first room. The rooms are okay, TV reception was ordinary (both rooms) and beds could be newer, a little hard and saggy. Service was excellent, breakfast buffet was 7/10. Choice of pools was a bonus and good tucked away...

This is my first time to Phuket. We are a family of 4 with 2 kids aged 2 and 4. Centata Karon Resort is excellent for families with young kids. They can stay whole day in the pool or the beach in Karon. My son particularly loved the activities organised by the hotel at night such as the kids disco...

This is a lovely resort if you are/or have kids. I guess we were a bit naive, we knew this resort was kid friendly, but we thought that if there was a family pool, families would use it and leave the others for adults. Well, we were very wrong, there were sqealing jumpers in every pool nearly all day. When...
