The pictures make this hotel look lovely but it was far from. The room was dingy, dark and small and the bathroom was not nice. It gave off an awful smell which we couldn't shift even with closing the door. The room rate came with free breakfast which was nothing short of awful. Also, when we first arrived at the... More

I do not have high standards for a room as ive been backpacking for 6 months through asia and have slept in many questionable places but diamond cave resort asks you to pay 500 thb for their room. I usually wouldnt have paid more than 200 thb. The shower walls and floor were covered with dirt when I first got... More

Terrible room and the worst bathroom so far. Breakfast wasn't free and it was terrible anyway. Location was ok. But the room was disgusting. Bed wasn't confortable. Dissapointed with the standards of this place. You pay top dollar for a 2 star..

The view from the pool are is very nice and clean, there is the Diamond cave behind. The room was cheap but oldschool. I didn't see the info on the door that I have to ask cleaning if I need, I saw it on the last day after 6 days, so I was too sad about the dirty in my... More

Definitely not a 3 star hotel. Has decent budget rooms which was good for me. Also has nicely done ac bungalows with tv and fridges which in low season can be bartered and got for a good price. In High season terribly over priced for what it is

Lovely place to stay, nice rooms with beautiful swimming pool !! Also good wifi ans cheap laundry. Only downsides: not friendly staff, lots of cockroaches AND they steel your money when you're gone from the room. Lock your stuff and take your money with you !!

We were recommended Diamond Cave by a friend but goodness knows what he found so great about the place. We were spending 200 over our original budget so we expected to be blown away by the place but unfortunately we were left disappointed and it ultimately ruined our experience of Railay. Diamond Cave resort must be one of the worst... More

Although a bungalow with AC at the Diamond Cave is a little expensive, I find that you get a lot for your money, considering Railay is an island where everything is more expensive. Great room and bathroom, a nice pool area and friendly staff.

I spent the first three days on Railay staying in a lovely 2,200 baht "Delux" room at Sand Sea so, even though I'm used to budget rooms, I was expecting to be disappointed on entering my 800 baht fan room for my final night. I wasn't. The fan bungalows seem to be exactly the same as aircon, minus, of course,... More

Definitely not good hotel. Stayed only one night and it wos the worst hotel during my stay in Thailand. Not clean room. Overpriced. No wifi in rooms, etc. Would recommend to go couple meters where you will find better deal than this one.
