Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   My reviews are always very honest to make it easier for future travelers so with that being said. The staff was very friendly... but... the rooms were very dated. The bathrooms were not very clean and the shower and bathtub had stains. The room had a bad Odor and chipped paint. You can hear all noise in hallways and the town below. The tv had minimal signal (not like were here for that) although good to know. The photographer for the pictures did an amazing job because the rooms are not owning up to part. They received 2 stars simply for being nice when at check in

Review:   Hotel staff were excellent when we first arrived. The room is well equipped and comfortable. However the room was on the smaller side. Breakfast was included as part of our package and it was pleasant enough providing a wide variety of foods. I highly recommend Centara Karon on the basis of value for money and staffing.

Review:   The rooms are getting dated. Towel rack broke off, shower head sprayed water in random directions, hot water wasn’t consistent, toilet seat was broken, balcony door was rotting, there was no table on our balcony, lumpy old pillows, lost electricity twice for about an hour and they don’t have a powerful enough generator, aircon wasn’t a consistent temperature, TV small and old. A friend got upgraded to the same room as us. Happy for them but we paid more for the same room and got no upgrades. Breakfast buffet was less than impressive with smaller variety than comparable resorts. One morning was full so they sent us to another area to eat with even less variety. Having said all that it’s still a good hotel for families. The kids pool was fun for all, the on-site playground was nice, and the hotel staff are very well trained (other than the omelette chefs). We felt like the rooms and breakfast were not up to the standard of the price we paid when comparing to other resorts in this price range. Will probably try somewhere else next time.

Review:   Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The room we had (pool cabana room) was fantastic - a spa pool big enough to seat 4-6 if needed (room only sleeps 2) in a private garden courtyard out the front of the room, and a high-walled rear courtyard with a second outdoor shower. Our room was serviced twice every day. The room was maybe a little dated, but we would definitely stay again. The gardens throughout the resort are beautiful, the pools (3) are great. Fantastic buffet breakfast. We didn't eat other meals in the resort, because there are so many eating options right outside the door. The location is excellent - walk to the beach in about 3 min, walk to the temple market, shops/restaraunts/massages/everything right outside the resort. We loved it.

Review:   our second visit here and it was better than the first. Staff are all friendly. Rooms by the Lagoon are awesome. Pay the extra for a ground floor room. Easy accept to all 3 pools. Plenty of cheap restaurants just outside the main gate. Perfect for families with kids
