Dear 629Robert Thank you for your review, I'm sorry to hear you felt the room was basic and smelled damp and further that your shower was not cleaned from used bottles. The room you stayed in is indeed our entry level room, but we have several other room categories such as our Lagoon rooms, Tropix rooms as well as Cabanas....

Our pre-booked air-conditioned mini-bus arrived 10 mins late to pick us up from Phuket airport, which was not the best first-impression, but the driver explained that traffic was bad and thankfully the Centara experience just got better from there. It took just over an hour (less in good traffic) to get the hotel and check-in was quick and easy. We...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At the heart of Karon Town, with an abundance of eateries and entertainment options at its doorstep and Karon Beach a short stroll away, the resort is perfectly located to experience the many facets of Phuket. As a destination in its own right, Centara Karon Resort Phuket fulfils every holiday aspiration, from pure bliss at Spa Cenvaree to active holidays and family fun with activities galore, yoga sessions, three swimming pools, waterslides and a kids’ club. This four-star resort, laid out within beautiful gardens backed by green hills, is comprised of four very distinctive residential zones. Couples and small families will find the rooms and Honeymoon Suites at the Terraces a comfortable retreat, and enjoy the option of ocean view or a private outdoor Jacuzzi; while families and groups of friends are spoilt for choice with spacious guestrooms set moments away from the waterslide and games of the Lagoon pool. The generously-sized one- and two-bedroom Cabanas feature a private terrace with a plunge Jacuzzi. As a fun place for families, the resort has a kids’ club with daily activities and three expansive swimming pool areas complete with three children’s pools for the younger ones to splash in, two waterslides and pool games. Pool parties are held regularly, and other activities include tennis and football. The resort also has two restaurants, a sports bar, and three swim-up pool bars A scheduled shuttle service takes guests from the resort to Patong, and Phuket International Airport is reached in less than one hour. ... more   less
