We arrived at Railay beach in the midst of a storm and so we were particularly haggard for our check in at the Sandsea. We went to our junior villa and stuck on the bath, just happy to be alive. Sadly, when rechecking it some minutes later the water was still lukewarm despite the heat up to the maximum. By...

The new rooms are really really good. The location is perfect. The beaches nearby are good, though really packed, it seems like all of northern europe visits. Smoking is unfortunately allowed at breakfast. The breakfast is pretty lousy. But the view is great from breakfast. You can sit there all day. I recommend this place however the service is poor...

Very good budget hotel. If you arrive at Krabi East, call them up to send the buggy cart or else walk (barely 10 minutes). Stayed at the cottages which are spacious and the bathrooms are clean Avoid the pool area as it gets noisy.

We stayed three nights in a grand deluxe room, which was spacious and clean. The location of the hotel was good and the cliffs are spectacular, though the long boat noise was significant if you sat on the hotels chairs. You're only a ten minute walk from Phra Nang, which is worth the walk. There were a number of drawbacks...

My partner and I arrived at sand sea resort and after we checked in we were taken to a bungalow. It looked ok from the outside but the moment we got inside we knew we were being mugged off. The bungalow was dated and looked like it was going to fall down! The tv in the room looked about 30...

Railay is victim of its fame. In high season its too crowded, too loud and too expensive. It's not place to rest and is't neither place to have fun because not much is going on. Beach looks great but only by high tide. This all refers to all hotels here not only Sand Sea. Regarding Sand Sea. Front desk staff...

Had a lovely 4 nights here over the Christmas period. The room was lovely and had both a bath and shower which we loved. Our room was overlooking a quiet pool area used by only a few of the surrounding rooms (which was additional to the main pool at the front). We ate in the restaurant 3 nights out of...

We were pleasantly surprised by this resort after reading some of the negative reviews. We had a really spacious clean room and it's an excellent location right on the nice side of Railay (on the beach). Breakfast was nothing to write home about but has an unbelievable view! All in all worthwhile resort to stay at.

The spa is overpriced and dont have good service. When i had booked time for massage they said I should come back in 30 min, so i walked 50 meters and had a massage for half the price outside the hotel

Stayed here for 7 nights. As much as we enjoyed it, there were too many negative things to give more than 3 stars! Check in was fast and smooth. The room was very spacious with a big balcony which we absolutely loved and spent rainy days there. The bathroom were extremely dirty and didn't look that it has been cleaned...
