Got totally drunk with the owner the last night, and paid for our stay then. Next morning I forgot about having paid and paid all over again, this time to one of his employees. Asked later pr email if i could get that second payment refunded, but there was never any answer. Guess the owner (english) is more fond of... More

Negative: After a 5 star hotel in bangkok the bathroom is really poor. If you shower there is water all over the floor. The worst was the noise in the night. It mainly came from the air condition and the refrigerator or the wind outside. Even with earplugs I couldn't sleep. The bed is also quite uncomfortable. Anyway you have... More

Very good hotel for the price. I'm sure that Beyond Resort and the Sheraton are nicer hotels with more facilities etc, but generally find those places you could be anywhere. For half the price, Sands was very good for the money - clean, self contained bungalow style rooms around a pool. Service was very friendly as is the norm in... More

The Pros: - the resort is small and idyllically located outside of the buzzle of Ao Nang - the pool is amazing well kept, clean and well positioned for all bungalows - the atmosphere is Bali-esque and very quiet - there are only a small number (20?) Rooms - unlike in the oversized usual resorts in that area - the... More

- room and swimming pool very nice - reception very poor - restaurant very expensive, the ones nearby also - far from everything - local Mosque makes sure you wake up every morning at 4:45AM to the scream of "Allah Huwa Akbar"). - as for the beach, well awful - definitely not good value for the monney - will not...

We were here years ago and the area has grown up a bit...but this resort still has its original charm and great atmosphere. The staff are lovely and so attentive. The area is perfect and if you hire a bike you can make it to Ao Nang really easy any time you want. But this quieter area was so much... More

This is a 2* hotel, pretending to be much more than it actually is. Where do I begin... . The reception area is a joke. Check in took almost 20 minutes (and we were the only ones there), plus the receptionist (and later - the hotel British owner) were reking (probably never heard of deodorants). The path leading to our... More

Located north of Ao Nang (20 mins) the area of Klong Muang is quiet. The hotel has about 20 rooms or rather bugalows set around a pool. All quite basic but pleasant and well air conditioned. Restuarant for breakfast is across the road just above the beach. There is a Sofitel about 5 mins away and then nothing more in... More

I had tried to book the Krabi Sands in the past but the airport siege stopped us going so I was keen to go there this time. Klong Muang and the hotel were both as expected from info I'd seen online but it is pretty sparse so I hope my detail will be of help to others. The area of... More

Don´t take the managers word for getting their so called "deposit" back in case of cancellation. I understand the regression is a serious problem but this is definately not the right way to make a living in Thailand!!!
