I've stayed here before and we came back because the kids loved it. The entertainers are brilliant and probably the reason we came back. The service here is terrible, from front desk to restaurants and service staff. I think this is very poor training and if this Resort was in Australia they would go out of business very quick. Two...

We stayed in the Centara for 6 nights as part of our honeymoon and whilst it is a nice hotel, we were a little disappointed at first. The room we were given (in the Terraces) was in a corridor which looked unfinished - the corridor was not painted and had dirty marks all over the ceiling like it was in...

This is one of those hotels that far exceeds your expectations. The staff are so lovely and extremely helpful. The rooms are deluxe just like the pictures online. Everywhere is spotless and the food on offer is fantastic. It is located just far enough away from shops and bars to be nice and quiet but only a stroll away on...

Me and my wife stayed in one of the cabanas by the adults only pool. The room was nice enough and was serviced very well throughout the whole day. The only thing about the room was that I kept getting bitten by mosquitos when even when the door was closed which I was a bit perplexed by but right before...

We were extremely pleased with our stay and the kindness of almost all staff at all times during our stay. We were welcomed by a lovely man on the front desk at 3am on the 28th Dec. He was so kind to us and our young son, making him feel like a very important guest by calling him 'boss'. Even...

We last visited here in 2009 and had the most wonderful holiday, so we were really excited to come back! Unfortunately things have changed. We decided to treat ourselves to a pool cabana as this is the end of a very long holiday for us so we thought it would be great to have the option of a private space...

This was my first stay at one of Centara's properties and my expectations were fairly low as the price was less than $100 AUD with breakfast. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the resort and the delicious included breakfast! Let's be clear, this isn't a five star international hotel and in many ways that was perfect.
