Me and my partner booked in for one night as we were celebrating our anniversary. It's safe to say that ultimately you pay for the location here and not much else. The rooms are dull and tired, severely in need of a new lick of paint. There was a good selection at breakfast but it was ruined by being too...

Conveniently located at the beach front of railay beach. Tailboat stations are just in front of the resort, convenient for island hopping. Resort room is big, had a room on the second floor. Beach front restaurant is nice to chill for a beer and people watching. Good to make a reservation at the table nearer to beach during sunset, beautiful...

1.5k baht for seamless airport~longtail transfer. The rooms are spacious with awesome balcony and monkey action in the morning. We stayed at room #1121. Staffs are friendly though impersonal. F&B rather expensive but you can walk over to the East for cheap food and massages. Railay is not a full moon party beach so dont expect parties or loud music...

You'll love seeing the beautiful sunsets from the pool at the Sand Sea Resort, they are spectacular. You'll also enjoy the friendly staff and the yummy breakfasts. We opted for the transfer from the airport to the hotel, and at first I thought the price of B1500 was a little high. After I saw how seamless the transfer was, with...

We stayed for three days and loved the beach. The service is also very good though they would not allow us to go to our room until 2:00, we arrived at 12:00. I don't understand that since they make you check out at 11:00. A few things you should be aware of if you stay, You must arrive by boat,...

Sand sea resort is very beautiful hotel. Beach is in front of front of hotel. You can walk at the beach, go around railay to see Panang beach or play cannoo. This hotel is bangalo style. But here have one fault is everything is expensive. Railay don't have 7-11. Every plus price about 50% up.

I spent 15 mins by long-tailed boat from Ao Nam Mow to Railay East, then walked straight to the resot in only 5 mins. The resort has 2 swimming pools, one is at the front of the resort and other one at the back. They are good for couple and family. I stayed in superior bungalow, the room is nice...

Absolutely loved staying on Railay beach! We stayed at both Sand sea and Railay Village - both were amazing! The rooms were very well kept and a great location. The beached gets a bit busy during the day with day tours but nothing overwhelming, plus we would go out on day tours and come back in the evening. A small...

The hotel in general is good but the management is not doing enough in maintaining its good starting point. The check in was good but for the check-out they were slow and claimed to not having the people to help us with out heavy luggage (with a small golf cart which was obviously available). They also refused to take our...

Loved this hotel. Not the best service but adequate. Transfer was a great idea. Welcome drink nice. Room was awesome. Had a day bed that we used as a bed for our three year old. Beautiful location and value for money. Great pool with kids part too. Great family holiday. Not too crowded at this time of year either.
