We were here with our kids in November and it was the best time ever. Resort staff was exceptional and have helped us throughout our stay. A very special thanks to Maysa (front desk) for helping us move to an awesome room with sea view. A special thanks to staff at The Coves especially Pakboong, Thida (she is exceptionally awesome), Gaew, Ho and Khwan. Thank you to Kookai for making us comfortable at Mare cafe and suggesting us the best food. We would also like to thank staff at the Kids club (Alisa and May) Special shout for Sanja, Dino, Sara and David from Carpe Diem for taking care of our kids and providing awesome services at Centara Grand. Our trip wouldn't have been so great without you all. Last but not the least room service staff (Kung and Dah) for keeping our room clean with kids making all the mess around. All the staff are so friendly and always smiling. Read less

Staffs were friendly and courteous. Probably not the kind of resort i was expecting in thailand. Inaccessible to any places other than the beach unless if you choose to go by foot (certain segments without proper footpath). Bar and restaurants closes early and i have to find my own transportation to town for food at 11-12am
