we are planning a 7 night stay in phuket in october for 2 adults and 2 kids aged 12 and 10. it has been recommended for us to stay in karon. we would like a 2 bedroom suite/villa, does not need a kitchen. i would like something reasonably nice with a great pool. the travel agent suggested centara grand resort but their 2 bedrooms come in a around $600 per night which is way out of our price range i was hoping to keep it under $250 - $200....is this possible or am i dreaming. we like the idea of walking to restaurants and a little bit of shopping. is the centara resort really worth $600 per night??? how is the other centara resort located? that seemed more reasonably priced but wouldnt let me book a 2 bedroom suite for more than 3 people via internet.
Thanks in advance for your advice
