Centara Karon is a great family resort. We paid the extra for the one bedroom villa which was gorgeous, the resort has three pools, waterslides, a playground and lush gardens so you really can't complain; apart form the fact you could be anywhere in the world. The resort caters so heavily for Westerners and in particular the Russian market that...

This hotel is just average. The rooms are basic and the kids swimming pool is in need of maintenance. Our ocean view room was hardly ocean view, (which was my fault for not checking how close the hotel is to the ocean...it's not) but it was located right above the beer garden, which played horribly loud karaoke style music to...

We stayed here for 5 nights. The staff are friendly. The bed was very comfortable. They would have received a higher rating for me if: 1) the food in the breakfast buffet was better (it was mediocre at best), and 2) the staff enforced the "no smoking" and "adults only" signs at the adult pool - even when I asked...

We recently stayed here for 2 weeks and had a great time. The hotel is well looked after, and our deluxe tropical room was perfect for the three of us, and located by the quieter pool at the back of the resort. The hotel location is well placed to walk to the beach, or to wander into town, although people...

Centara Karon Resort was pleasantly suprising. The location is great with shops and restaurants right outside the property, and the beach a short walk away. The resort itself is large and well planned out with all the facilities and services you could want. Our room (Deluxe Family Studio @ the Lagoon) was spacious and relatively clean. One complaint we did...

We had a great stay at Centara Karon Resort! Facilities we're great, Entertainers (Children's Entertainers) we're great and had great programs for the kids to join in.

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
