Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket - Karon
Throughly Enjoyed!
Pros: Has great ocean view. Room and facilities are awesome. Hotel staffs are attentive and provide very good service. Cons: Can be a hassle to go to town and night market unless you can ride bike. Ask for a deposit based on the number of stays.

Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket - Karon
Hugely disappointed!!! Couldn't wait for it to end
Good: Near soft sandy clean beach Bad: - we found it strange that there were very few people in the pool, and realised that the swimming pool/lazy river/water slides not fun - hotel blocks poorly or not connected at all, which meant a simple trip to the Swimming pool/breakfast/dinner/kids playroom required a Long detour through the hotel lobby or a climbing down Long stairs with two young children - nightmare when it rained. One umbrella was provided, but they were reluctant to provide more, so hard to do anything once it rained - breakfast menu hardly changed - Housekeeping did not change our bedsheets, started to smell after a few nights - hotel staff was a nuisance checking everyday if the mini bar was used - poor access to main road. To get to food alternatives to the overpriced restaurant food, you have to either walk up the steep entrance and risk getting hit (nightmare with young children) walking alongside cars or walk via the beach through the unavoidable dirty water (foul smell will give you an indication) from the drains entering the sea. After that you still need to walk another 10-15 mins; good luck if it rains - non-smoking room doesn't mean your Neighbours won't smoke at the balcony. Clothes left out to dry ended up smelling terrible - hotel is far from airport - entire place is in need of urgent facelift - there was a WEBCAM above the TV that was SWITCHED ON throughout our stay, and there was NO WAY to turn it off. Who knows WHO'S WATCHING YOU?!

Awesome resort
Stayed for 2 nights with my wife and 2 kids. The beach area is beautiful. The hotel pools and play areas are enough to keep the kids occupied for hours. The hotel grounds are clean and beautiful. The Karon town area is about a 20mins walk from the hotel.

Centara Not So Grand
Decided to stay here for our honeymoon for scenery, proximity to the beach, and jetted tub. Did not have a good experience unfortunately. We are optimistic people and didn’t want the experience to ruin our honey moon, but here is a breakdown. Pros: Friendly staff in the dining, pool and spa area Spa is tranquil and very professional Pretty view of the beach Cons: Arrival in room had cleaning mop in room, bed hastily made and sand in between the sheets (did not appear to have been changed prior to our arrival) Shower was missing seal to the door. Entire room flooded all the way to bedroom every time you took a shower Tub on Balcony has dark brown water (even after running it for over an hour) Picture of rag we used to clean attached Hot water shut down for 24 hours (how was restaurant open?) Housekeeping asked if we stole decorative pillows that apparently were supposed to be in the first room after switching (which we never saw) Got stuck in the elevator, twice Small reptiles crawling in rooms from the large gap under front door Birds flying around restaurant, eating off the utensils for buffet and not being changed Water slides are shallow and caused injury Resort needs upkeep. Cracks, stains on walls, missing hardware, rusted screws in showers etc Resort mentioned they would do something about our less than ideal stay but in the end did nothing Overall, I can’t say that I would recommend anyone to stay here. It is too expensive for the quality.
