A good hotel in a golf package
Booked this up with a golf package. Arrived at the hotel late and we were shown to a room on the left as you drive in near the main entrance. Had a few drinks and went to our room. The local club over the road finished playing very loud music at about 4am! Not happy, went to reception and they changed our room, to a good room in the old part of the hotel on the 1st floor. Lovely building with some interesting history. Breakfast was good, Gym was good and I was able to hire a very good set of golf clubs. Swimming pools and surrounding areas were clean and tidy if a little crowded. The only thing I would say is the majority of guests at the hotel were German and you have to get up VERY early to secure a sunbed in the shade! My wife who does not play golf was not impressed! Bars were good staff very helpful, beach area was beautiful and there is a beach market about 400m away that is worth a visit. Overall the place was good, we had not been tipping in Thailand but in this hotel the porters wanted a tip.
Perfect as always
Love everything about this hotel. The villa, the beach, the trees, staffs just perfect! Clean and beautiful well maintainance. Even in this difficult situation but this place still calm and made me much more relax and recharge my energy.
The colonial style is magnificent, also the staff! You feel at home with all the gardens, the pools, the restaurants. Also the location in town and still at the beach is perfect. Go and try, it is worth it!
Loved our stay!
We stayed for 8 days in a pool villa. It had the charming feel of a cape cod beach cottage, high ceilings, large window which made the room very bright, The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom quite rustic that retained a cottagy feel. Inside shower was pretty small, but we enjoyed the private outdoor shower. Our private pool area was the perfect place to hang out after a whole day at the beach. With the pool villa came special services such as a free cocktail hour at the club, which served a nice array of hors d'oeuvres from 5-7. A nice breakfast was served at the club as well as at the villa campus' poolside. Great little buffet and eggs and pancakes to order. The hotel has beautiful grounds, plenty of different pools to suit everyone. Service was superb throughout our stay. The hotel has a large campus with green lawns, cool topiary, great little restaurants and bars. It felf very separate from town, but is actually adjacent to town which is easily walked to.There were plenty of sunbeds at the pools, but the hotel doesn't supply sunbeds on the beach. This proved to not be a problem because there were private areas that provided beds and drinks and amazing thai food for a very reasonable fee. We shopped around and wisely chose to use the sunbeds at Madame bPOO's which is in the #6 slot. Madame Boo is a great cook and a warm and welcoming host and made us feel special and pampered. She and great staff made up of a married team of Phio Phio and ၿဖိဴး ၿဖိဴး were so friendly and kind and were fun to get to know. We stay in touch with them on FB. We plan to visit again next year and will definitely choose to stay in the pool villas and spend our days at the beach with wonderful Madame Boo at station 6! Highly recommend Centara Grand!
We stayed for 5 nights in a Deluxe Club Access Room . The room was lovely with a big balcony overlooking the beautiful gardens with the pools and sea in the distance . The staff were wonderful . The hotel is grand but very relaxed and comfortable . We made good use of the Club , which had an indoor air conditioned area and a lovely shady outdoor area. We had breakfast there the first couple of mornings , but preferred the larger breakfast restaurant. During the day a light lunch of soup and panini was offered , then later on afternoon tea . From 5.30 -7pm wine , beer , cocktails etc were offered with canapés / snacks ...needless to say there was rarely a spare seat ! We enjoyed the lovely gardens , the 3 pools , the beach , being located in the centre of things with a short stroll to shops , restaurants, massages, markets etc. Easy to see why this hotel gets a lot of repeat holidaymakers.
