Friendly staff. Room was old the bed uncomfortable. Hotel has nice location still the view from the rooms aren't not of any ocean. Very crowded and people tends to occupy sun chairs before going to breakfast then just leave towels for the rest of the day. Breakfast was average.

The above heading is a composite of price location neatness friendliness or not up keep of grounds breakfast with room and what we could see of other places when walking past. Ultimately, for the price we got the room for, it was value for that money. I'm sure if you want to live it up and are prepared to pay...

We stayed in the new buildings at the back of the property. The rooms were big and clean. They are made moderns style with lots of windows right out to the path where everybody passed, so no so much privacy. The area is good. It is situated right onto the good beach (Railay West). And it does also offer 2...

Sand Sea was comfortable and fairly priced in comparison to the neighboring properties. It's right on beautiful Railay West, and the long tail boats pull ashore directly in front of the lobby and front pool, so it's pretty dang picturesque and charming on arrival. We were in one of the older bungalows (113, I think?),next to the 'interior' pool, set...

staff was mixed between friendly and totally uninterested/unfriendly; bungalows are pretty old and not very clean; poor many value; breakfast buffet was okay; but all in all good location and a nice pool.

We stayed at a "Grand deluxe" room on the 2nd floor, which is recommended for better privacy. The room itself is at the highest level - big, well kept, all the amenities, and there is both a shower and a bath. You get a lot of goodies like a beach bag and beach mat, flip flops, shower robes, some snacks,...

Stayed here 4 nights and it has one of the best locations. It's on the right side of the peninsula. I feel sorry for people staying on the other side. The hotel has a nice pool and great access to the beach. Breakfast was very good. But they charged extra for our 4 year. The whole resort lacks maintenance and...

We had a 2 night stay here in December and were very pleased with our choice. The resort is in a perfect location, easy access to the beach and in short walking distance to other parts of the island. Our room was towards the back of the resort, directly outside what seemed to be the much quieter of the 2...
