We have been trying to get here for years and now we are happy to say we are no here.
Lots of pink everywhere.Buildings floor tiles. Not my favourite colour but it's their local branding.
We are club members we love it!
Thanks go to Minni, Pay, Bow.
Great service guys.
A good selection of food and drinks. We like the after dinner drinks.
Happy hour by the pool is great as well. 2 drinks for the price of one.Just over 200 baht for 2 whiskeys by the pool.
The pool people will remove your towel if you walk away and reserve your spot 😆
We have a premium spa Deluxe room.
It's good but for us, I would do without spa next time.
We were moved from a premium deluxe ocean facing the room. We were moved because our aircon needed maintenance.No big deal.. thanks to staff moved us.
Both great rooms.
Deluxe pool suites I have noticed get a lot of sun.
We would not use those personally as they would be too hot many parts of the day. Others love to be in the sun all day, not us.
We want to say special thank you to Dah our room attendant.
Lovely smile and great service go above expectations.

Things that could be improved.
Poor transport services to the town. You pay which is not standard at other places in Phuket.
To Karon or Patong.
Not enough transports through the day. This could be improved.
I hate the tv monitors on the mirrors in the gym.
Right, where you check your form there are a couple of tv screens. Really bad positions.
I would not use the bonanza deal. Its bonus baht for money spent at the resort.
We paid 5000 baht to receive 7000 baht.
It stops you from eating elsewhere. Karon has many great restaurants. Cheaper as well.
Even though the food is great at the resort.
But it locks you into eating at the resort to use your credit.
Would we come back?
Yes!
We really like it.We settled in and feel very relaxed.
The beach is great.
Staff are great with a focus on customer satisfaction.
Thanks Centara Grande Phuket.

Good experience

The facilities are abit old and the rooms as well but overall was a good resort. Staff were very polite. The pool side is amazing, something that u cant find in other resorts. The animator guys were also very good, they kept us on the pool the whole day playing games.
I found the prices in the resort very high compring the quality of the food.
Not recommending using the resort tours booking because we were overcharged for a tour that u can find three times less the price outside the resort.

Family vacation
Reviewed 2 days ago

Spent a lovely couple of weeks at the Centara Grand - my kids loves camp safari and the carpe diem team (shout out to Ivana, David, Edi and Lada - my kids loved you! Thanks for being so happy and enthusiastic!) there was always something going on that we could all join in with. Our room was a deluxe pool suite and that was also handy when we wanted a bit of privacy as a family etc. We ate inside the hotel as well as in Patong and nearby Karon - the children especially loved the tiger restaurant ( carved wooden tigers everywhere). This is the 3rd Centara we have been too and probably the best in terms of family entertainment / things for the kids to do. Little ones spent lots of time in the lazy river and then on the beach. Camp safari is for 4 years and above - so only point I’d make is maybe offering a service for kids under 4 to stay and play too?
I also used the spa Cenvaree ( used in 2 other Centara Grands) and mist comment that Rung and her aromatherapy massages were amazing!
We organised two trips ourselves and used the hotel taxi service - went to visit the Great Buddha which had amazing views and also saw the Fantasea show - billed as a ‘disney’ type show - we probably should have read up more as it was a show with performing elephants and lots of stalls outside selling a lot of souvenirs. Not the type of show we would go to and next time I’ll do better research rather than going on based on another holiday makers recommendation.
Overall a really lovely holiday and definitely recommend Centara Grand for a great family stay

Great resort
Reviewed 3 days ago

This was a very good resort. The only things I would do to improve is to have beach chairs and umbrellas on the beach. I prefer to sit by the sea and without any chairs and shade, it made this impossible.
The room was absolutely beautiful and the staff were friendly. The adult pool is a must if you are not into kids. I have kids and love them, but this was a couple's trip and I enjoyed the peace of the adult pool.
Food was good at the hotel, I wish there was an all inclusive option -- as I would have preferred paying up front and then not having to figure it out. We walked to Karon for a few meals there and honestly, the food is much better at the resort.
Karon is a short 10 min walk -- nice for something to do. Hot and lots of things to see. We felt extremely safe and walked back to our hotel at 11:00 pm without any concerns.

We are a 45 year old couple and had no issues.

Superb hotel
Reviewed 4 days ago

This resort is beautiful. Well kept tropical gardens. Gorgeous rooms. A perfect uncrowded beach. Lovely pools. Wonderful well trained staff who cannot do enough for you.

For us, the only negative to this lovely resort was that quite loud banging music played around the pool most of the day and evening and in many of the resort restaurants. There was a lovely adults only pool and bar which we loved and was much quieter but sadly from our second day there there was building works going on so relaxing came with the sounds of electric saws and axel grinders for most of the day. It is the sort of peaceful heaven where you want to enjoy the sound of the tropical birds, sea and waves rather than disco music. This is personal I know as some people like music whilst sunbathing but for us it meant we had to avoid many of the lovely facilities.

Karon town is close and a short walk from the hotel along the beach but it was a bit of a shock when you get there. Very tacky. Asian Benidorm. Shops all sold same things, tattoo parlours and noisy restaurants. We saw rats and cockroaches around bins which were not emptied often enough.

It's a shame the towns have moved towards serving the tourists and have lost their Thai characer. You certainly could get cheaper food in Karon than in the hotel but after one night there we decided to stay where the food was served in a safe and clean environment.

To summarise. Woukd not hesitate to recommend the hotel resort bit wd have enjoyed it more if provision was made for those who want a quiet atmosphere. Phuket generally would not be our first choice of holiday destination in Thailand. Too touristy.
