Great place to stay, right on the beach. We had rooms with dip pools on the balcony, which were amazing to cool off in with great views. You have to walk along the beach to the town, a beautiful 10 min walk. But if you don't want to (cos it's very hot) then you have to book and pay for a taxi. A hotel shuttle would be nice.

Food and drinks in the hotel are expensive and the only place to get any, anywhere else is in the town of Karon, along the beach. Staff were lovely, place was clean. We had a lovely time Read less

We stayed here recently during the ‘not so wet season’(July is normally very WET). Our Club Deluxe Pool Suite was fantastic, enjoying our plunge pool and the upgrade to The Club option which allowed us to get away from the Buffet Breakfast crowds and enjoiy quiet ambience without kidlets (we’ve had our turn of kiddies). The Club option allows for benifits such as pre and post dinner drinks, laundry service daily for two items each, breakfast, light lunch and afternoon tea services. You really don't need to leave the resort. ALL staff were exceptional but ‘O’ stands out for us as he did not let a moment slip where he could be of help to all around the Adults only Pool. ‘O’ is a credit to Centara Grande and he made our visit that much more memorable. Five ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ to ‘O’! Everything about Centara Grande implies luxury, from the room, to the amenties, to the Staff, to the high speed internet to watch your Netflix. We loved it here and would highly recommend it other travellers. Read less

Excellent resort in a superb location - with activities available in the resort and in the adjoining beach. All of the family loved it (kids 16,14,10). Staff were really polite and helpful. Short walk to Karon or ride to Patang.

We stayed here for 10 days over a great spell of weather. The luxury pool suite was very good with the water a little colder than pool and sea. The breakfasts were very good, busy though most days so get there early if you want quiet. Oh was a great server with CD attentive too. The pool is excellent though the paving/tiling needs some love. 2 for… Read more
We stayed here for 10 days over a great spell of weather. The luxury pool suite was very good with the water a little colder than pool and sea. The breakfasts were very good, busy though most days so get there early if you want quiet. Oh was a great server with CD attentive too. The pool is excellent though the paving/tiling needs some love. 2 for 1 happy hours twice a day. Food is pretty good but along with the drinks pretty much 5 Star Asia prices. The pool side entertainment needs some work, Aria needs to realize she is there to entertain not send to sleep. To arrange luggage transfers and other logistical requirements was much too difficult for a hotel of this type - improvement needed. Lazy river, water slide and cliff jump good fun for kids and adults. Beach was very good (cleaned daily, they need it), water beautifully warm and surf was “up”. At the end of the Long Beach so much quieter. Tuk tuk or taxis into Karon, 200 baht or 300 for Kata. Would go back. Read less
