First class
Great holiday resort, staff are amazing, so friendly and nothing too much trouble. Food is great with plenty of options at breakfast, and the coast restaurant is first class.Hotel is a bit of a walk from most of the action but for me this was a good thing. Highly recommend anyone to stay here

Great hotel by the beach
We were upgraded from 2 rooms to the family suite. 3 double beds were set up in the living/ dining room for the 3 kids. There was a king bedroom with huge ensuite bathroom, 1 guest toilet and a fridge. Bathrobes, bedroom slippers provided, bottled water and mosquito repellent . Breakfast had a wide variety including eggs to order, Thai noodles, a bakery and Banana smoothie . Beach next to hotel had soft sand, free deck chairs. Swimming pool was relatively small but made up for it with a volley ball net and basketball net and Children’s pool. Location is great, 15 Min from airport, opposite My Friend massage and many eateries. Would definitely return !

Great location and private beach is what this place is all about. Facility is showing it's age and bathtub design is horrible. Friendly staff. Gym is decent.

Tennis court on Koh Samui
The tennis court was what brought me to hotel, the Thai boxing instructor Nhong hit with me for 2 sessions. He was great.

Great location and nice hotel but very expensive
First of all this is the best location on Chaweng beach. Right in the middle where the sand and water is the best and a bit away from the noisy night clubs but still a short walk or quick tuk tuk ride away from all the action. Very nice pools and other facilities. Staff is friendly, courteous and competent. Definitely a family atmosphere here with lots of kids around.The rooms are nice and clean with great beds, bedding, air conditioning and large bathrooms. Ocean front room had a great patio also. One downside is that the water is rusty colored and smells a bit bad. Seems overdue for a plumbing upgrade. Also, very expensive. Seems there are a few other properties right nearby at a lot lower prices that at least from the outside seem nice enough so I am not sure if I would spend the money to stay here again.

Nice beach but that’s about it
Nice property, pretty gardens, nice pool, great beachfront, $5 taxi to entertainment area. Rooms old and worn, very weak air con, no hot water in shower, water out of faucets smelled horrible, smelly shower with mold and mildew obviously visible/present including on the shower heads. Many breakfast options but none I tried were very good. Restaurant has no air con so was about 95 degrees in there. Best part of this hotel was the beach and gulf and you can get that at many places at a much better price. Not worth rate I paid.

The perfect beach holiday
I cannot sing the praises of the staff, ambience, food, the beach or location enough. There is a wide array of cuisines plus a cafe that makes light meals, beverages and cakes to suit anyone. The banana was a favourite of mine. There are activities galore. I’d like to send a big thank you to Dalma and Aiysha as their classes were exceptional. Yoga is twice a day if that is your thing. I thoroughly enjoyed both the morning and afternoon classes. Dalma’s Ashtanga class was so rewarding. You are also a short walk in to town, no bothers you except to say hello. The Centara Grand is the ideal place to stay on Koh Samui. I hope I’ll be back soon x

Well located resort but a bit tired
I have mixed feelings about this hotel. It’s big and well located but it’s quite dated and in need of a spruce up. The service was professional but not that friendly. I didn’t feel same sort of Thai welcome I’ve had at other hotels. The food at the restaurant is average, even the Thai food - which to my mind should be exceptional. It also felt like they had not invested in the facilities for a while - the gym was dated and the foyer really lacked a modern, vibey ambiance. The kids areas were very neglected. Could do way better especially for the price!

A great hotel, will be back one day
Great hotel, location was very good for us as was at quiter end of Chaweng beach. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The resort has great entertainment staff on hand for kids which was good to see. The pool was fantastic so was the swim up bar for afternoon happy hours for a cocktail or four. The beach is pure heaven white clean soft sand and while we stayed very calm warm sea. The only thing we found that could be an issue was the shower, the water temperature fluctuates between warm and extremely hot which an adult can handle but for young children it could be dangerous. The hotel room was clean and very spacious with a nice large bed, having a pillow menu helped ensure you got the right pillow for a good sleep. VIews from the balcony were magnificent. Will return
