This is one of the average mid-range options at Railay. I stayed in a standard double room which was clean and spacious but depressingly lit. Bathroom had a hot shower though with an odd mounting for the showerhead making it a little difficult for me without handholding the head. I had aircon but there is no wi-fi at the hotel,... More

Out of 3 months of travelling Thailand and surrounding SEA countries this was by far the worse hotel/guesthouse I had stayed in. We usually stay in budget places too. We had to get up, pack up at 3AM and get out of our bungalow because we had found that about 50+ cockroaches had climbed up through the cracks around the... More

We got a A/C room with a balcony. For Railay, it wasn't too expensive. The swimming pool was nice, the breakfast regular. The only thing is missing is the WIFI !!! in 2015 how an hotel cannot offer Wifi ?

When we arrived the staff and the rooms seemed to be ok, but.. After first night me and my friend got horrible insects's bites on our body. When we looked at the pillow, the little worms were visible walking on our sheets!! The room was ridiculously dirty. Both bedroom and main room, where the dust was everywhere and the little... More

I stayed two nights. The room is okay, no wifi. Has hot water, I didn't feel safe enough to leave my belongings in the room since my room was at the very end. I didn't communicate much with the staff, but when I did they seemed friendly. This is a safe bet, but overpriced.

Needless to say I had rashes week after Told reception about bed bugs, they denied it. I have a photo with them hanging out on my pillow 3- customer service... More

We stayed 3 nights at Railay Viewpoint Resort. Although the room is clean, there is nothing else attractive about the place. Rooms aren't serviced unless you ask, no safety deposit box in room and all round bang average. Rather spend a little extra and stay on the west side of Railay Island! Definitely won't stay here again.

The most horrible hotel I stayed at so far, for 1600baht a night, almost €44, you'd expect something a little nicer. A warm welcome for instance, nope. A really good breakfast, nope. A nice view, absolutely not. And you would certainly expect free internet but no, this is also the first place that charges you for wifi. The room was... More

I’m trying to be as objective as I can, but the lack of care for their customers/clients forces me to give this resort a low rating. Our first impressions of the resort didn’t start well, even before we had arrived. My mother has problems with her knees and I was aware that travelling to Railay Viewpoint Resort needed a long...
