Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket, Karon
Close to action, but still secluded
Very accommodating, excellent service. We had a few incorrect charges on our bill but this was fixed up, no questions asked. We enjoyed a private Muay Thai class and the spa there is wonderful. We also used Ray at to book all if our tours at the booking desk. The food is also great and buffet breakfast is worth including. However we found it cheaper to eat the other main meals in Karon.

Relatively pricey, but mostly worth it.
When I arrived the Tun on the balcony wouldn’t drain, they had it fixed within an hour. Some of the amenities were really expensive compared to the local economy (shuttle service to the airport, for instance, was more than double that of the one I ended up booking locally. 1800 vs 800) With the exception of the taxi service, the services I did use made up for the difference in cost with quality. The Pad Krapow Gai, at one of the restaurants, for instance, was really good.

Sewage problem
The hotel calls itself a 5 star hotel but is a really a 3 1/2 star Hotel that has a problem with raw sewage and street sewer runoff that makes the beach unusable. Health concerns don’t permit safe swimming in front of the hotel at all. There is a two hundred foot cesspool of sewer water directly in front of the property and it empties into the ocean in a thirty foot wide river that cannot be crossed without getting doused with the filthy water. We had to walk half a mile by an open double sewer canal in order to get to a safe beach. They know they have this problem and have chosen not to deal with it safely. the sight of kids playing in the dirty water unknowingly was too much. They also have a sewage problem on the hotel grounds. Right next to building 1 there is a sewage smell that is so strong it almost makes you sick just walking by. If you want to stay somewhere that has nice pools and do not want to interact with the ocean this is a good place. The sewage problem really ruins the charm of the place though. One other issue is an old central air conditioning system that does not cool the room adequately. A thick comforter quilt without a sheet makes this even worse. Lastly at night we were waken up several times by tuk tuk with loud music.

Great Stay at Centara
The Centara Grand was definitely an amazing resort. Lots of beautiful facilities (pool) and the beach so you have plenty to do. Our room was great and had an ocean view. I highly recommend paying the slightly extra amount for that and breakfast. The breakfast was one of the best I have ever had. Extremely large and every type of food. My only negative is that the service wasn’t great. We often had to wait at dinner (or meals) for someone to take our order and then give us the bill at the end. They didn’t check in very much.
