Myself and my partner stayed here for six nights and we honestly didn't want to leave!! The hotel is right on Railay beach, which personally is my second favourite beach we have been to! It's so clear the water. It's in the perfect location, with a little market around the corner!The rooms are absolutely fantastic, it has everything you need,...

Love this hotel. Right on the beach. It's a must to watch the sunset! The hotel itself is quite big, so after check in we got the buggy to take us to our room. It was very spacious, with a lovely huge balcony and the beds are really comfy. This is a beautiful hotel with a lovely beach, we only...

Old bungalow, get one of the newer rooms. Don't eat at the restaurant, terrible food. My husband got sick on his " burger" and even just grilled food was poorly done. Use the back pool for less exhaust smell from all the boat activity near the front. Do book a sunset dinner cruise with the local " junkett" type boat,...

Dear Value Guests Thank you very much for all useful feed back. We are now concentrate on improving our bungalow, food and beverage. For the monkey it is very hard to control.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying here. Beautiful location right on the beach. The hotel food was good. They have a lovely breakfast buffet and were even willing to cook some rice extra, which wasn't on the buffet that day. The employees are very helpful and sweet. We had a roomy bungalow. Everything is kept very clean. Got great massages on the...

It could be a good place, BUT the employee are absolutely not kind. The service is quite poor. The restaurant is quite bad!! It's the only place in Thai where we had stomach disease. The beach is full of speed boat and long tail boat. Price? Unbelievable high for the service received. For 70% of that in Samui we got...

I've stayed at the Sand Sea resort 3 times over the last 15 years. I stayed again in a deluxe bungalow, it's quite basic really and they are starting to look a bit outdated and in need of some TLC. If I'd have been aware of this prior to booking I'd have paid the extra for the newer superior accomodation...

This hotel has a great location just steps from the beach. The staff is wonderfully friendly and helpful. We had a late flight and the staff held our bags and let us stick around well after our check out time. They also helped us arrange transportation from Krabi airport and then to Phuket airport. They were total lifesavers and made...

The hotel is a cheap one for railay west beach but worth the value for the great beach. We booked a superior bungalow, which is nothing luxury but a little private room, with a large bed and bathroom. The furniture is a bit tired but fine! It's expensive for Thailand but one of the cheapest on the west beach. Wifi...

The room was incredible! Very big, with a great bed and always clean. Amazing bathroom with bathtub and a great shower. The pool was very nice to relax, with a view to the beach. The location is perfect, right in front of the beach.

“We were at the rear which was peaceful, though I don't think you'd be troubled with noise anywhere here as it's quiet per se.”
