This is the sixth time I have stayed at this resort in the last ten years so I am in a position to judge performance and standards over time. I stayed there in late March 2014. I immediately sensed that all was not well. The bungalows are tired and getting a bit shabby. The standard garden view bungalows do not... More

I stayed here a week. I have no complaints. Very quiet, at the Beach, nice pool. They say they have a lof of French in the high season. That might sent a end to the quietness. But I think that is the same everywhere. There was no russians here.

The hotel is on Lamai beach, in the north side. They offer the swimming pool, the chairs for the beach and the towel for free. Note that the facilities at the swimming pool are in good conditions, while the chairs at the seaside are mainly broken. A good advantage is that you can have free, clean towels for the beach/swimming... More

If you want to be in a quiet place on the beach, but not too far from the action at lamai beach, this is the place. Bring or get a hammock, or 2. We hung them up on the trees. The pool is great. Can't swim out front in ocean--too many rocks, and very shallow (less than 2 feet /... More

This is the second time we stat at Sand Sea with two years between our visits. In addition I was at Lamai in 1997 and see the change towards a total tourist ghetto. Many places like Lamai is rapidly loosing it's charm in Thailand. The pressure from massive tourism wears both people, structures and nature down. Sand Sea is no... More

This hotel was recommended to us by friends as a good value for money hotel at popular Lamai beach. Since it was our first time to Samui we decided to stay here for the first half of our stay. Our friends stayed at the budget rooms close to the water but we decided to go for the 'Junior Suite Ocean... More

Stay at this hotel at your own risk. Because the staff here don't care about you. behind the smiles, the staff here are very cynical indeed. They rented us a motorbike with a very bald front tire that had no grip on the dusty Samui road. The bike easily slipped and fell over, even from a standing position travelling at... More

Like one of the other reviews said if you're after a flash hotel this is not for you, but the position on the beach is so good. We stayed in a garden view room, it was quite small, really just enough room to out our suitcases on the floor and a small bathroom. My first impression was that it wasn't... More
