Centara grand is a comprehensive resort for people of all ages. For my family with young kids, it suits them as there is a kids club. We adults can stay WITHIN the resort while they enjoy themselves in the club. The clean and beautiful beach is just right in front of the resort. Despite the monsoon season (monstrous waves), playing with the clean and fine sand has become the kids' favourite activity of this whole trip. The slides and lazy river are kind of substandard (lazy river is too lazy to flow) and dangerous. My husband and kids got into minor accidents on a few occasions. There is much room to improve with regards to safety aspects of its pool. Buffet breakfast spread is one of the best I've ever had but the lunch in the same restaurant got to be the worst. Opt for the stay that includes breakfast. The hotel is about 15 min walk along the beach to karon central where there are countless eateries, convenience stores and massage parlours. Hotel charges 50 baht for shuttle service to the central at two timings, 10am and 2pm. But you got to walk back along the beach on your own. Just expect sandy and tired legs if you return in the dark after your dinner. Flagging for taxi along its road is impossible since it is situated along a slope and few taxis passes by. It is best to hire a private van for a flexible day trip. The hotel transport service is much more expensive. Overall, I truly enjoyed staying at Centara mainly due to the sumptuous breakfast and the beach location. Likely to consider it again if they provide shuttle service back from karon central too.
