My wife and I were always keen on going to Krabi. We arrived at Krabi airport and took a 45 min taxi to Ao Nang. From there we jumped on a long boat for 10 mins which took us to Railay Beach. Be aware that if you get on the longboats you will get your feet wet getting on and...

The beach on Railay West is definitely the place to stay - much nicer than the East side with affordable hotels. Both pools here were nice. Great breakfast. Hotel was fully booked but it didn't feel horribly over crowded. I found the staff on reception a little rude but the staff in the restaurant and housekeeping were very friendly. Kayaking...

Amazing location,but unfortunately hotel not impressive at all. We booked deluxe bungalow, which was so old and dark, old style... We had to pay 3000bath extra for better room, because we couldn't stay in that one. Just to fell more comfortable. Pictures below from deluxe bungalow.

We stayed 4 nights at sand sea resort. Once arrives, there was no greetings, staff simply asked for ID and CC. The complex itself is nice looking, our room was great. It is named as grand deluxe. It is not a bungalow but I think it's better than the old bungalows. We had a balcony on the second floor and...

We spent family holiday in Feb 2015 in Thailand, partly on Railey West. The place is amazing, the view, the cliffs, the vegetation. The fact that it's so secluded and you can only join by boat. But... that makes it very touristy and brings non stop visitors from Ao Nang, using the long tail boats that are very noisy (as...

We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed our stay here. We went from Krabi pier by long tail boat to the east side of the beach but the hotel is only a short walk as it is on the west side of the beach. Our room was at the back of the resort overlooking the quieter second pool. The room was...

Stayed for four nights. The junior suite near the front pool was superb. Cannot fault it; clean spacious air con, comfortable bed, great bathroom. No complaints. You need to be aware that whilst right on the beech the resort is also thoroughfare for people making their way from east side to the boat services on west side. Appeared to be...

Upon entering the lobby, the staff were completely rude! We arrived early to check in, and nobody was accommodating. Once we did get our key, we weren't offered the nice drink and cold tea towel like previous customers ahead of us. Once we left the beach to enter our room our sink was clogged, and the hot water did not...
