Good for families and close to the action.

This hotel was a great family hotel. We booked a 2 bedroom suite on the ground floor beside the Emerald pool. We loved the room, the pool and the hotel generally. It was located close to many shops, restaurants, massage, scooter hire, etc, so you don't need to travel far to get dinner or some pampering. This was our 3rd time in Phuket, once with my wife and I at the Le Meridian near Patong, once with our 3 kids in Sunwing Kamala and this time with extended family and our kids. This was our favourite location as it was practical but not our favourite hotel (Le Meridian was the winner here). But we must compare apples to apples and Le Meridian was more costly and 5 star. For the money Centara is a brilliant hotel and i highly recommend it for families wanting to relax but not be too secluded. Only thing is the breakfast options are not varied enough so within a week you find you are bored with Breakfast and a buffet is usually one the great things about a holiday. Don't get me wrong, it was good but just lacked the 5 star touch i am accustomed to when it comes to choice... Other than brekky i cannot fault the hotel.
