Stayed here multiple times with the family and is in a great location. The beach is great and the swimming, rock climbing, kayaking and day trips are great. The best is the ability to be able to go on dive trips and also the close location to lots of restaurants. This is a prime tourist spot for Thailand and there...

We had a great experience at the Sand Sea Resort, starting with friendly service at check-in. After reading some of the reviews, we were expecting rude service, so were pleasantly surprise at the helpful employees. We also had good meals at their restaurant. The breakfast buffet had a good variety of fruit, breads and a made to order egg and...

We chose Thailand as a place for two families to holiday together, one from UK the other from Australia. Railay beach was absolutely stunning, the lack of cars was fantastic. We found Sand Sea great value. I had felt a bit concerned by some of the reviews about the superior bungalows. We stayed in four of these, they were right...

We stayed five nights in nice bungalows. Both room and bathroom were clean and bed was good, but the shower was giving only either hot or cold water with low pressure.. The hotel is located on the west side by the wonderful beach and the sea is right in front of the hotel. Hotel does also have 2 pools, which...

Already the access by a long tail boat from Krabi is great (no road access). Beach is good with stunning rocks on both sides, but with permanent noise from engines of long tail boats. Accommodation is fine and clean, quite nice pool, staff nice and tries to be helpful. Breakfast good, hotel restaurant OK. Local shop overpriced. Good boat trips...

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. The location is great, the rooms are amazing and the pool is nice as well. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. I would definitely recommend this place to my family and friends and we will return here if we make it to Railay Beach again!

Railay is a beautiful place, I cannot wait to go back there! The resort we stayed in was nice, nice staff, nice room, except for the 'extra beds' that my brother and I were sleeping in..it was like sleeping on rocks.. The breakfast was nice, (7.00am-10.00am) and the pool was refreshing. The big problem was that on the way to...

Had a good stay at this resort with my girlfriend for 6 days. Its located on the west side of railay where the beach is really good. The east side doesnt even have a beach its just rocky and not good at all. The rooms are big and clean and worth the money. The breakfast is alright, like a standard...

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights and it was not ideal. We booked a junior suite which is more expensive when really we should've booked the cheaper king deluxe. The king deluxe rooms are all brand new rooms with modern bathrooms and it looks quite stunning. The junior suites are old, run down and yes they have...
