This is my 4th trip to Phuket but my first at Grand Centara Karon beach. I'm writing this review in the comfort of one of the deluxe room we are staying with my husband with 3 kids aged 12, 9 and 5 (turn 5 today!) and we are a having a fabulous time. The rooms are spacious and beautiful and has a panoramic view of the Karon Beach and I get to watch the sunset every evening from the balcony.
The breakfast spread every morning is amazing, lots of variety and the fresh bread and pastries are my favourite along with the fresh pancakes made fresh with the pancake machine (so unique)!
We also love the themed buffet dinners and entertainment at night. Our favourite is the seafood buffet which we had twice this week, fresh seafood of lobsters, king prawns, crab, mussels and squid.
The pool facilities is incredible! The lazy river, the cliff jumps and my 5 yr old all time favourite - the big slides! He keep going on the slides over 30 times everyday! I especially love boogie boarding in the clear blue sea and there is always a complimentary boogie board available for use.
I also had one of the best massages at the Spa Cenvaree. Love the attention to details that made the experience all the more relaxing and enjoyable.
However I think the part that makes our stay special are the STAFF of the resort. All of them had a ready and smile and greeted us every time they pass us. Many strike a conversation with us when they can. They are very service oriented, proactive, show a lot of initiative and obviously takes a lot of pride in their work.
It's our 7th day here and we are leaving tomorrow but it's not going to be our last stay here. Thank you for making this one of our best family vacations!
