Amazing Entertainment Team!

Had a lovely family holiday at Grand Centara. Fantastic for kids. Took 1 and 3 year old and they loved it. We had a few rainy days but the kids club is a great space for them to play. All the staff were so friendly. What made the holiday however were the Carpe Diem entertaining team. Sandra and Seba were fantastic, entertaining the kids constantly and games for everyone round the pool. They do such an amazing job. Many other guests mentioned they had returned just for them and i can see why. We stayed in spa delux suite which was great. Huge balcony for us to relax on with hot tub once kids asleep. Lovely beach and pool. Lots of stairs to the rooms which was fine for us. Our bed was very uncomfortable but once i notified reception they put on a thick mattress topper within an hour, very good service. Only tip is not to use hotel laundry service as was very overpriced. 1 load cost us 3800baht similar load when we took into Karon town was 180baht (60b per kilo). But the prices are there upfront. So we should have known better. All in all wonderful stay! Highly reccomend.

Perth, Australia

Great beach side location within easy walking distance to local eateries, bars and entertainment. Very family friendly with a huge swimming pool, water slides that will keep the kids going all day. I found the pool side staff excellent as were the restaurants and front desk reception. For adults travelling by themselves a pool/bar area is set a side just for your use. There is a hotel taxi service available at fair prices 24 hours a day. We booked an ocean view suite with club room access included and found it of great value. Be aware the Centara on line information does not tell the full story about benefits included with the club benefits i.e No mention of being able to have an à la carte breakfast instead of the continental at no extra cost. Also no mention of the after dinner spirits and liqueur hour also provided.
