Guest reviews for Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi - SHA Plus

Everyone (2)
3 out of 5
I stayed at the Centara Grand Resort from 11-23 November 2018 in room 1201. This wasn’t my first choice as we were staying somewhere else that we didn’t like and booked at the Centara at short notice. Centara’s property along a tiny beach line with a backdrop of towering stone wall mountain at the other end of Krabi is majestic in appearance. It is very beautiful, scenic and exclusive. You can only get there by speed boat that runs from Nopparat Thara Pier every 30 minutes from 6am to midnight; and every hour from the hotel pier. Another way to get there is to walk along the beach passing the Ao Nang Seafood restaurant the lady-boy show and bar area and head down to the end of the beach and walking up into a trail called the Monkey Trail. There is no road cut to Centara which keeps it somewhat isolated from the crowds and tourists. I would give Centara 5 stars for creating the atmosphere of a perfect holiday with its beach, tropical garden, waterfall, and quaint villas. Everything looked perfect in terms of the landscape and architecture. I cannot speak for all rooms on the property, but I can say that room 1201 was lovely, but in need for upgrading. I could see there were lots of patch work of areas they were fixing or covering. ROOM: Overhead shower didn’t work, bed looked strange in the middle of the room and the side lamps had mold or were stained with something. The rooms seemed like it needed upgrading and was a much older room.

ABSOLUTELY THE WORST HOTEL EXPERIENCE

Cons: EVERYTHING
We flew halfway around the world to Thailand and had a remarkable time everywhere in the country except for this hotel! We planned to stay for a week in Krabi at the hotel, and when we got there tried to make the best of it. It was so awful that we decided to leave for the last 4 nights of our trip so we could enjoy what was left of it. The Centara Grand completely refused to refund us ANY of our money!! As our result we were forced to pay for their hotel and our new hotel. DO NOT GO TO THIS HOTEL. THE STAFF AND FACILITIES ARE AWFUL. I'VE TRAVELED ALL OVER THE WORLD AND THIS IS BY FAR THE WORST SERVICE I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. AVOID THIS HOTEL AT ALL COST, THEY ARE CROOKS.

Incredible resort!

Fantastic location surrounded by huge limestone cliffs on 3 sides with beautiful views out to sea. Free use of kayaks, wind surfing equipment and snorkelling gear from the hotel. Boat ride is fine, don't listen to other reviews. The fact that the resort is secluded on its own bay is the best thing about the place. You can arrange a boat to come and pick you up at any time if you want to go to Krabi, you just need to give about 30mins notice and a long tail will turn up. The rooms are large and super nice, with lots of balcony space and great views. Choose a room on the upper level if possible. Take a Kayak to Raylay Bay and under the cliffs and into caves, it fantastic. The food is overpriced at the hotel, but that is always the case. Everything else is perfect.

pity about the boat

Arrived to find the ""pier"" that floats on top of water, not up to handling waves. We were scared (we are all sailors) and wet. Resort is marvellous.Food a delight and staff welcoming ..on land.Boat transfer on way home in calm seas left us wet..again and angry. Sea soaked clothes mixed with sandy feet on international flight was not necessary and left no confidence in skill of boat crew. There was no attempt to slow down or stop water entering boat. We had to hold on tight.It was a disgrace. We will never go back.

Pity about the boat transfer...

The hotel grounds and rooms were wonderful. Spa on balcony a unique touch. Some final construction continuing. Food exquisite and service will get better. Staff very helpful and welcoming. Spa menu and service recomended. However boat transfers were truly horrendous. On arrival the boat could not handle sea conditions and temporary wharf was akin to riding a rollercoaster. We were scared. We arrived wet...really wet. When leaving we were subjected to a wet wild ride that left us soaked for our flight home. No confidence in skipper of the launch. A poor way to end our holiday.
