First things first. Arrival with no issues staff at the hotel will help you with your lagages and they don't really expect anything in return they just do it. I have to say that when we first saw our room we were a bit disappointed. There were some old stain marks on the wall and it just looked dated. Some... More

It’s the only reason to touchdown Krabi... Forget everything else you read about. Yes the warmth of service is not up to Thailand standard, yes the food is better in Bangkok, yes on any given day at any time there is many speedboats and noisy longtail boats on the beach (everybody has right to reach paradise, no ?).

Fabulous location which gives a beautiful view of the sunset. However the Rooms are basic and slightly dated. Swimming pool has limited sun loungers (beach none) and lots of guests claiming them first thing in the morning. Staff arent the friendliest and food is okish. Breakfast is extremely basic and dont expect too much. All in all quite expensive for... More

This was our second visit to Railay after falling in love with the island in 2007. We decided to 'splurge' and stay at Sand Sea. It really was perfect. Buffet breakfast had a great selection and awesome location on the beach. Room was gorgeous. I would recommend a second story room as it's much more private. Balcony is amazing, rooms... More

We travelled as a small group of three to Railay, and all were very impressed with the Sand Sea Resort. The location is faultless in terms of being in the centre of Railay Beach, with full beachfront for the swimming pool area and restaurant dining area. The Grand Deluxe room in excellent in comparison to other resorts we have stayed... More

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay at the Sand Sea Resort - big rooms with space for all 4 of us a good sized balcony and big bathroom- all good - the lighting in the room is very weird - red in one room, blue in another! The food isn't great - very boring Thai menu with not many... More

Getting here was not an issue. Beach is <50m from beach with spectacular views. The whole beach has such a relaxing vibe. There's enough room to kick a ball on the beach without annoying anyone. Room 1211 was much nicer than expected. Only downfall was lack of privacy we got from being on first floor. There is a walkway past... More

Anywhere on West Railay beach is probably great! The views are amazing and the beach is beautiful with fine sand and excellent swimming and kayaking - with the exception of low tide which is really low and the multitude of long boats crowding the beach any other time. Thankfully there is a bouyed swim area but the beach experience would... More

After staying on the wrong side of the island for our first night, we decided to treat ourselves to something a little bit more luxurious while flashpacking in Thailand for a month. This hotel was just what we needed and although we could have done with a little more sunshine, the hotel itself and the Mangrove restaurant were great.
