Although now in need of a face lift, as far as a resort is concerned, the Centara Karon is well located, caters well for children and is close to the strip, beach and other attractions. The rooms are well appointed and the bathrooms more than adequate. The staff are lovely and always willing to assist. The problem comes down to...

Our pre-booked air-conditioned mini-bus arrived 10 mins late to pick us up from Phuket airport, which was not the best first-impression, but the driver explained that traffic was bad and thankfully the Centara experience just got better from there. It took just over an hour (less in good traffic) to get the hotel and check-in was quick and easy. We...

Karon is a quiet part of Phuket, with friendly people everywhere (nothing like Patong). It is only 15 minutes from the noise of Patong, or 30 minutes from the great sights of Phuket and Kathu districts. Lots of great little restaurants and the Centara Karon staff are always friendly happy and fun to talk to. Anyone who has a problem...
