Just back from second stay at Centara Grand Koh Samui after 10 years when we considered rooms luxurious. But under different ownership little has changed & rooms whilst clean & spacious are now looking dated and in need of refurbishment. Certainly nowhere close to 5*. However location is on the best part of the beach (warm calm sea), very friendly & helpful staff plus good breakfasts make up. Another plus is free wifi in De-luxe rooms & free towels & loungers on the beach. The well maintained gardens are a joy. Overall a comfortable stay albeit not cheap.
Pros: Location in central Chaweng - Service & willing staff - Breakfasts - Free Wifi in rooms
Cons: Tired rooms - Noisy AC - Birds & Cats annoy at outside breakfast - Sea views blocked by trees (OK in our block 2) -Towels only changed once per day - bedsheets variable in quality
