On arrival you are very tired after a long flight then an hour car ride to the resort where you are warmly greeted with a cool drink and quick check-in. There is a deposit required at checkin which your credit card is used. My only gripe would be that reception don't make you aware of the system they have in...

Nice accommodation with reliable Wi-Fi and a good selection of breakfast food. The pools were also nice, however the main one swarming with kids! One downside was that on our last day and night staying here the hotel did not have running water in our accommodation block. The water was out from at least 5pm until the next morning when...

Nice large pool and facility especially the fitness Centre. As Thai customers we were ignored by the porter when we arrived. They were talking and ignoring us. I had to put my bag in his hand and told him I wanted to check in. The Asst. Mgr and Nong Kaew were very nice and warmly welcomed us. They made us...

Arrived at 7am on 3rd may, after a very long journey unfortunately our room wasn't quite ready. But when it was we weren't disappointed. We had upgraded to a cabana room which included an outdoor shower area, two king size beds and an outdoor jacuzzi pool. Very clean and lots of room. Breakfast was nice, bit repetitive but clean restaurant...

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
