The title says most of what I'm about to say, but I feel I have to say it in the vain hope that managers at this place will read reviews and fix it. If they did then this place would be second to none on the island. The good: Bungalows are clean and air conditioned. Outdated to to the styling... More

First, there is no mention when booking that access is by long tail boat only. The local vendors charge 80 THB each way, The resort chargers 1000THB, best to use the local vendors. My wife has MS and limited mobility. I found out the day before arriving. I tried 7 times to email the hotel about access and also where... More

This resort has perfect location just on a beautiful beach. Our room was big, clean, had everything you might need and was just a few steps from the beautiful beach. The pool area is wonderful and breakfast by the beach offers great views of the sea and lime stone cliffs.

This resort takes the cake!……and eats it too!……literally!…….I give this resort 5 stars I do not give stars away lightly, they are highly coveted, and hard to come by, however the 2 stars I removed from the Outrigger Resort on Phi Phi Don, I now give to the Sand Sea Resort. Leaving the Outrigger on Phi Phi Don, (please read... More

I read the reviews on Trip Advisor regarding the bungalows vs. the deluxe building. I can't speak for the deluxe building but the superior bungalow worked out real well for my wife and I. We were celebrating out second wedding anniversary and wanted to do something special so we set our sights on the west side of Railay. We had... More

We found this hotel on arrival in Railay. They offered us a really good deal on one of there lovely rooms in the big building. The room was great. Unlike any other rooms we have had in Thailand, very modern. It was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The pool area is wonderful and breakfast by the beach offers... More

I'm really mixed on this hotel. Not due to any fault of the hotel. It's the location. The location is both the best thing and the worst thing about the hotel. The location is beautiful, on the 2nd best beach on the isolated peninsula, flanked by amazing limestone cliffs and surrounded by tropical beauty. This might be one of the... More

Unfortunately, we didn't manage to get the boat across to the hotel due to storms, but the hotel had refunded our money for the room, which is great customer service indeed! We will definitely look to rebook next time we are in Thailand.

We stayed in a grand deluxe room for 3 nights during the Mother's Day long weekend. Resort: excellent location right in the middle of Railay west beach, the pool is on the small side and was mostly used by kids, the sun loungers were always full between breakfast and late afternoon, wifi signal was excellent, grounds and pool area were...
