Typically you have lush gardens to create the welcomed tropical feel, unfortunately here not. Its just the pools with the buildings just next to them. Restaurants serve low quality food (=crap) /shakes...

We definitely can se the advantages of staying at Centara for families with small children, however there are a couple of topics that will prevent us from visiting the hotel again. The biggest drawback being: - Reservation of sunbeds, if you wake up after 9 in the morning or are a civilised person you will not find a available sunbed...

The property has decent amenities and is located 600m from the beach, with shops nearby, the 3 pools are nice with an adult pool if it gets too noisy. Gym seems well appointed and maintained. The balcony room was ok, although it could do with some freshening up and the toilet almost over-flowed a couple of times. House keeping seemed...

Stayed here for four nights on one of our frequent family trips to Phuket. We love Kata Beach so decided to book this hotel in the area. I must say, the 4 star rating definitely needs to come down to 3 star. The location is good with a vibrant shopping, eating and bar scene all around. Tons of kids and...
