Over Hyped Over Priced

Its a over hyped hotel located on the Karon Beach. The staff was not courteous , there was no electricity for compete night during over stay, the air conditioner in the rooms were outdated and not upto the mark. The breakfast menu was same every morning . The Indian food section was not looked after. The location of the Hotel was far from the main city and the shuttle service was also on pay basis.

Excellent hotel

Witney, United Kingdom

Have just returned from a weeks holiday at the Grand ace Tara. Have just returned from a week at the Centara Grand Beach Resort. This is a fantastic hotel situated at the end of the beach. The adult pool was amazing (service spot in). The family pool was lovely but I didn't enjoy the sand area. The non sand area for sun beds was taken very early, I wonder why?? Food and drink is very expensive but if you are prepared to walk into the resort (about 10 minutes) you will find a variety of cheap bars and restaurants serving local authentic food. You can walk either along the beach (but you will encounter an inlet into the sea which means your feet get wet) or along the road. Initially we thought the road was a no no as the first 50 meters there is no path but the traffic in the evening is a lot quieter and this was always our preferred route. Meal for two on average 800 BHT including a couple of drinks. Try the street van selling Phad Thai (80 BHT per portion) and was amazing. Also the banana pancake man is a must (40BHT).
