"A concrete monster"
Probably we were spoiled by our experience with wonderful beach hotels in Khao Lak and Krabi but this hotel came as a sobering shock. I would rate it as two-star at most. It is a concrete monster resembling a prison in the middle of the bustling city.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Family friendly, outstanding service"
Staff is outstanding, very friendly and courteous to all guests.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Avoid Bow at the front desk. With smile on her face, she has been most unhelpful. Other than Bow, he rest of the staff were quite good. Overall it is quite good hotel with good rooms, restaurants and pools. I wished though it had better access to the beach. Also the food at buffet dinner on Thursday night was good but the band playing the music was […] not. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel for families."
Enjoyed a comfortable and pleasant stay. Good rooms with relevant facilities of a kitchenette.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely Family Time"
Great Swimming Pools !!! Even though the rooms look much better in the photos , we really were not disappointed. Kids had a super time in the swimming pool slide & at the kids club. staying opposite Caron beach would have been a wiser choice but if its a quiter, less crowded Kata beach that attracts you then, Centara Kata is the place to stay!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Homely resort, good location, excellent staff, would stay here againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Shopping in Bangkok with Glow"
We have a fantastic stay with Glow, the staff were very helpful, friendly and also willing to assist with any request. The only downside was the neighbourhood but as we had come specifically to do shopping it was brilliantly situated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel but there's no elevator."
We got a room on a third level at first. We got tried from walking up to the room because there is no elevator. Then we ask for room changing at the first floor because our mom is quite old. The staff agreed to give us a room at first floor on the second day of our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, quite a walk to the beach"
Enjoyed staying at Centara Kata Resort, quite a walk to beach, around 15 minutes to get around Club Med to get to beach. Nice layout and very quite, never heard any vehicle noise in 2 week stay. Spa massages very good, each therapist trained 3 months on massage!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Sea and street shops in walking distance"
Polite and kind staff. The officer who lets the cars in the hotel area was very helpful when we asked where to find what. Hotel was flexible with personal requests. Breakfast was more than good but needs a bit more to be excellent -- my girlfriend had to request for soft boiled eggs because only hard boiled eggs were available the time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rough start, but sunny days ahead."
When we arrived at the hotel, we were informed that the room type we had booked (2 bedroom suite) was not available, despite the fact that I had booked 6 months in advance. We were offered 2 1 bedroom suites instead. At first, I was hesitant as my kids are 12 and 15, but the rooms were next to each other and right next to the pool, and the kids were […] ok with it. We moved to the room we booked after 3 days We were given free WI FI and a meal voucher for the inconvenience caused. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, hard mattress!"
This hotel was centrally located in Kata so was close to shops, bars and restaurants and the beach. The fitness facilities were really good. My only problem with the room was the bed. The mattress was really hard and there was not any way to get comfortable. The surrounding neighbourhood is ok but the room we were in is situated adjacent to the hotel […] driveway and you can hear a lot of the noise from people coming home from a night out. There's also a construction site on the other side of the driveway so if you like to sleep in, wear ear plugs! But overall we enjoyed our stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel and Grounds."
3 pools to choose from makes it ideal for adults who want to find a quiet area to read, sunbathe and swim, away from children. But at the same time ideal for families, with the main pool having a toddlers paddling pool Good choice of menu but bar prices a little on the high side.

"Excellent Hotel For Familes"
Hotel located about 10 minute walk away from Kata beach. Plenty of eating establishments within a minutes walk. The Emerald pool with a great slide for kids and a pool bar at the end for adults. Ground floor rooms in this area walk straight out on to pool area. If you are wanting a more relaxed pool the wave pool rooms are quieter. We had a 2 room unit […] which was really spacious and the kids had their own bathroom. Great games area with pool table, table tennis, xbox station and fooz ball. Daily activities eg: Thai cooking class. Vegetable carving, water polo. Kids club for up to 9 and a gym. Good variety of food at buffet breakfasts. Thai night was a good experience for kids.

"Nice Place - would stay again"
Just spent 10 nights here with my husband and could not really fault anything. We had a few minor issues with our water pressure but it was quickly sorted out with no real disruption to us. Breakfast had a good selection to keep most people happy. We did not eat other meals in the restaurant opting to eat somewhere different each day. The room was spacious […] enough for the two of us, and was cleaned daily. Sheets and towels are changed daily we opted for a 3rd daily change to do our part in some water conservation. Our room was up near the back of the resort so was very quiet. The staff are all so friendly and always greet you with a smile. We used the ladies dressed in orange at the end of the entrance for massage and manicure. They are such a great bunch full of laughs, can't wait to see them again. We used a lady called Tae for all our bookings, turn right at entrance and she is on the right corner at a small counter. Great savings were made here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Pleasant and relaxing. Excellent meals and good swimming pools. For a family orientated hotel there should be staff on hand to control behaviour of adults in pool who have had too much alcohol and disrupt guests and little children enjoying the facility.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pleasant hotel with extensive well kept gardens"
The hotel is located some distance from the busyness of Patong and a 15 minute walk from the beach. There are plenty of tailors and massage places nearby with small cafes a short walk away. This hotel is suited to those wanting a quieter holiday.Genuine Expedia guest review
"This is a very well-run resort."
The resort was excellent. Clean and all the staff were helpful. The beach is about 10 minutes walk through the town. From the map we thought it was closer but you have to walk around Club Med.Genuine Expedia guest review

Great family hotel. Close to beach. The beds were a little hard.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Average hotel - better available"
Dirty brown water in room. Non-existent wifi (paid service). Poorly trained restaurant staff. Room smells of urine after cleaning - obviously dirty mop. Stinking fridge that had to be replaced. Plenty of smiles and apologies from staff but little action taken. Centara have better properties in the immediate area (Karon) which outshine this hotel. Sorry […] Centara but you need to buck your ideas up. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The Hotel ticks all the right boxes for a fab holiday! Staff were friendly and took the extra step if you had any queries! Security at front gatehouse! breakfast buffet is highly recommended! Great place to stay with children or teenagers! Well located next to restaurants shops and beach. The hotel has a shuttle service only one way to the beach. Excellent, […] gym! There's activities during the day in the pool ie. water aerobic. Happy hour, twice a day! X 2 headaches!! Our Thai time was relaxing!!

酒店的整体感觉不错，房间设施比较新，3个泳池都不错，特别是儿童泳池很赞。适合学龄儿童。离沙滩不远，步行10~15分钟，酒店上午有班车送，但是没车接，要自己走回来。 唯一不满意的地方是预订部太扯了，同一个订单订了两个房间（家庭出游）居然分配在两栋不同的楼里，步行要三、四分钟，太不方便了。反复跟酒店协调也没有解决，说是都订满了，后面都有客人入住，完全不能接受这种说法，不合逻辑，有什么道理先入住的要分在不同的楼里就是为了给后入住的预留房间，明显是酒店方懒得调整房间分配方案了，真是糟心。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Wonderful spa hotel in central Kata, calm area."
Very well maintained and pleasant hotel. Very kind staff and excellent service. Very good off season pricing. Nice room and beds – we had a free room upgrade at no extra charge. Abundant buffé breakfast (as vegans we had special food made for us at no extra cost!)

Vi havde en dejlig ferie på trods af skiftende vejr. Vi synes dog at altanmøblerne var for dårlige til et 4 * hotel . Det var slidte hvide plaststole. Vi boede i stueetagen lige ud til poolen. Super . Kan anbefales. Vi synes der var lidt for langt at gå til stranden men kunne jo bare tage hotelbussen. Alt i alt et godt hotel med sødt personale. Man […] bør nok ikke vælge hotellet hvis man vil have fred og ro . Men det er jo også et familiehotel med mange børn. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

ダブルブッキングで二日目にカタからカロンのホテルに移動させられました。いろいろとカタビーチでの計画を立てていたのに…わざわざ徒歩圏内でどこでも行ける様にとこのホテルを選んだのに移動先は町から離れていてタクシー代がかなりかかり予想外の出費になりました。一日だけこのホテルを利用しましたが海まではそんなに遠くに感じない程度の距離で6才の子供は平気でした。プールはこじんまりしていて過ごしやすかったです。朝食は期待しない方がいいかもです。スタッフはほとんどの方が笑顔で嬉しかったですね。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

잘관리되고 있는 호텔입니다. 직원들도 친철합니다. 다만 무료 와이파이없고 72시간 300밧받습니다.그런데,저희방 에서는 접속이 안되 불편했습니다. 호텔식당은 음식가격과 별도로 서비스봉사료와 부가가치세를 받아 첫날만 이용했고요.맛도 별롭니다. 조식부페 이용하시는 분들께는 괜찮다는 말씀전해드리고 싶네요..제일안좋았던건 방문당시 옆건물 공사중이라 많이 시끄러웠습니다.그에 대한 양해나 사전공지도 없었고요. 전체적으로 만족하지만 다시간다면 타호텔에 묻고싶군요.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
部屋をアップグレードしていただいたおかげで、プールビューのニ部屋続きのお部屋（1泊のみ。朝食なし）になりました。部屋は光がさしこみ明るいし、快適な滞在でした♪スタッフの対応もにこやかでとてもよかったと思います。バルコニーが広かったので早朝ヨガをやったり、海には行かなかったのでプールで泳いだりして、こじんまりとしたホテル内でのんびり過ごせました。ありがとうございました。Genuine Expedia guest review
"가격대비 꽤 괜찮은 호텔"
객실은 전체적으로 조금 오래되어 보입니다. 전반적으로 깨끗한 편이나 객실 샤워실 바닥에 쥐똥처럼 보이는 것들이 떨어져 있네요..;; 룸 청소한지 얼마 되지 않았는데.. 위치는 까타비치 까지 걸어서 10분 정도 걸리는 것 같습니다. 호텔에서 비치 까지 아침 부터 30분 간격으로 오전 11시까지 셔틀버스 운행합니다. 돌아오는 편은 없습니다. 썽태우가 지나가는 곳에 위치해 있는 점은 좋았습니다. 조식은 전반적으로 괜찮았습니다. 종류가 많지는 않습니다. 수영장은 3곳이 있고 한 곳은 풀 깊이가 1.5m입니다. 사람이 많지 않아 조용히 쉴 수 있습니다. 이 곳에도 비치 타월을 빌려주는 곳이 있으면 좋을것 같습니다. 비치 타월은 다른 […] 수영장이 있는 곳에서 빌려줍니다. 이 수영장은 조식 먹는 식당 바로 앞에 위치해 있고 풀 깊이가 얕은 곳에서 부터 1.3m 까지 다양합니다. 슬라이드도 있어 아이들이 놀기에 좋습니다. 실제로 아이가 있는 가족들은 거의 이곳에서 시간을 보냅니다. 때문에 조금 시끄럽고 혼잡합니다. 가장 마음에 들었던 것은 직원들의 친절한 태도입니다. 모두 잘 웃고 먼저 인사하고 항상 친절하게 알려줍니다.

"Hotel très classe"
L'hôtel centra kata reste un hôtel très bien , il est bien situé à 10 minutes à pied de la plage de kata beach (navette disponible). L'hôtel est à proximité d'agence pour excursions, de salon de massages et de restaurants. Il possède trois différentes piscines très bien entretenues dont une avec jacuzzi, concernant le petit déjeuner, il est très varié […] avec sa touche sucré salé. Concernant la chambre, le jour de notre arrivée, on nous a donné une chambre où il avait des odeurs d'humidité et de moisi. On a transmis le problème qui à été régler de suite en nous changeant de chambre sinon à par ça grand lit, clim et jolie salle de bain.

"Friendly service and great family hotel"
05/03/15 greta606 Cape Town, South Africa
Great to be welcomed with a refreshing tropical drink and a moist toweling cloth to refresh your hands. The staff is always willing to assist and respond with a smile to any requests. The room was fresh and cool and the bathroom spacious. Fresh drinking water is delivered everyday to your room. We enjoyed the Jacuzzi in one of the three pools, as well as the bar with seating in the water. We enjoyed a great breakfast every morning and the staff was exellent. The hotel is next to PalmSquare where you can have meals as well as dinner while listening to live music. Kata beach is 10 minutes away from the hotel. We enjoyed the short walk past the shops to the beach, but the hotel also offers a shuttle service to take you to the beach. We had a fantastic 8 days at the resort and can recommend it to people with children and those who want to enjoy a more tranquil environment away from the hustle and bustle of Patong. We took a Tuc Tuc to Patong once for the day. We left with some awesome memories!

"Centara Kata Beach"
04/29/15 Janice G Melbourne, Australia
Just stayed there for 8 nights. It was very quiet. Our room was on the bottom floor and we could just walk out of glass doors to the pool. It was within walking distance to most shops and plenty of places to eat. The staff were friendly and helpful.
"Great family holiday"
04/19/15 MV_ER_S_1 Perth
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Both pools kept the kids occupied while we could relax & the restaurant was really good as well. Our unit was on the ground floor at the far end of the pool so it was easy to access the pool area. The staff at the resort were very helpful and extremely friendly. This is one place we would definitely consider returning to again in the future.
"Great Holiday Experiences"
All the family had a great time at the resort. Staff were always very helpful, the service was great, food not bad, the resort was well kept and rooms clean. . The pools were great and it was near to the beach. We would definitely recommend it, great for families and adults, we will definitely be back.
"great hotel with value for the money"
04/13/15 rune n Oslo, Norway
two weeks at this well maintained hotel we are now back home and happy with our holiday. The hotel has a good location walking distance to everything and still quiet in the evenings. They have different pool areas where me and my husband enjoyed the quiet pool most. The rooms has a balcony where we spend some time. The staff is very friendly and always looked after us. We will not hesitate to be back at this hotel.
"Friendly and valued"
We had a family room and although cramped with good organisation of luggage etc. It was more than okay. Very clean and well maintained with a nice view of the waves pool and a balcony. It was also very quiet. The hotel is cash free but there was an offer on at the time where if you banked money with the hotel they would top it up i.e. 20k became 32.5k (thb). Could be used for all drinks, food and the spa. Made the hotel prices seem very reasonable. The bar and restaurants were excellent. The guys at the pool bar were real fun. The biggest memory we have are the staff. They were very friendly and made you feel really apreciated for staying there. Wifi was good in all areas as was the cleanliness of everywhere. The hotel has a very strong green policy which is evident in clearly marked bins etc. The only whinge I have is that we booked on the strength of a good kids club but when they got there it was coloring in pictures. No real activities. My kids were not up for that. To be fair it was quiet season and my kids want sporting activities or computer games and we didn't investigate the options thoroughly. Still they had an awesome time playing with new friends from the uk and nz. I would return here again and recommend it to anyone. There was a shuttle service to the beach but no return one??. Beach was a 15 minute walk away or a 200 baht tuktuk. Laundry at 70 baht a kilo (ironed) is available outside the hotel entrance. Found a brilliant taxi guy with a new SUV called mr ian (tel 0897234663) who took us to patong return. The 8 nights we were there went in a flash. Thank you to all the staff!!!

Just back from this hotel and we all had a fantastic stay. The bedrooms are spotlessly clean and the beds are so comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful without fail. The food choices possibly a bit limited but everything was presented well and tasted great.. Beach towels are provided free and can be changed daily. Thoroughly recommended.

Centara Kata resort is well located near restaurants and markets. Not so far from the beach. The very friendly staff made the holiday even more memorable. We met other tourists who said they come back to the same hotel every year. Breakfast is very good and the swimming pools are good sized. We are happy to recommend this hotel.
"Great hotel for stay with teenagers"
03/18/15 Lindsay H Plettenberg Bay, South Africa
I stayed at the Centara Kata with my 2 teenage children (ages 13 and 15) and will most definitely be going back there. The hotel was centrally located with easy walking access to the shops and the beach. The hotel was exceptionally good value for money - we booked the option that included breakfasts. The spread was great and we were very satisfied with the food options. The room was nice - enough space, a decent sized bathroom and nice and clean..The staff very friendly and helpful. In my opinion Kata is a great location for families with teenagers as the night life is good but not as hectic as Patong. The shopping is also good. We booked the option that required full payment more than 90 days in advance and made a good saving on our accommodation costs by doing this. Will definitely go back and would recommend this hotel to friends.
