Love the spa treatments and they usually have...

Hi, we stayed in room 328 which had beautiful views of the sea. It has a lovely balcony to sit on, and great air conditioning in your room. It has a kingsize bed which was really comfortable. The rooms are cleaned to a high standard every day and the staff are very helpful and polite. There is complimentary water in...

I'm sure many years ago this would have been a fantastic Hotel, however it is now creaking under years of use. When we arrived the pool had been out of order for 5 days and they had just had a massive sewage leak. Then, after waiting several hours for our room to be ready, we walked with the staff to...

I'm not quite sure how this hotel is getting any positive reviews at all its very misleading. The hotel and rooms are in need of a major overhaul to get anywhere near a decent 4 star let alone 5 ! We had made our way here from the krabi dusit thani which is a proper thai 5 star so we...

We have just arrived home after two weeks at the Grand Centara Samui and I must say I really would recommend this hotel. This was our first visit to Thailand (for my brother's wedding) and I was a little nervous about how family friendly I would find the place compared to our usual European or American destinations so I spent...

We have just returned from the Centara Grand Beach in Koh Samui where we stayed for the wedding of our son and his beautiful wife.

Staff were polite. Rooms OK. Lovely gardens and outside areas. Cleaners came in every day to change towels, make beds etc but never once cleaned the bathroom. Outside areas always clean.

We stayed here at the end of our trip for four nights expecting it to be the most luxurious of the three weeks in Thailand however, we were completely underwhelmed when we arrived.
