We found it very hard to leave Sandy Bay. This place is everything you could want in a mid year break. Located on a gorgeous relaxed island, Sandy Bay is not too far (15 min) from Thong Sala where the ferries land. With bungalows right on the beach, and it's is a sandy beach too, the views from bed or... More

I had read a lot of mixed reviews about Sandy Bay Bungalows when planning my trip, but because my dates fell over a Full Moon Party weekend, they were one of the only place that had accommodation available for all my nights, so I booked. I arrived pretty late in the night (about 10:30ish) but the staff were waiting for... More

First the good: Sandy Bay resort is located in a lovely spot of Haad Yao and has some decent bungalows for the price offered. But now the bad: My bungalow turned out to be quite noisy, with the busy road behind it, construction works that start at 7 am and music till late at night. After two nights of barely... More

It is a very nice resort for what you pay for however there were a couple of downfalls. First of all our rooms were never serviced for the 5 days we stayed. Had to ask in the end and it still didn't happen, which was strange considering there was only about 5 rooms being used during this low season. The... More

We stayed for 3 nights in a near by "resort" that was really bad. We decided to move out and find Sandy Bay. In the very same day we moved in to a very humble but decent clean and neat place that was value-for-money. We liked at lot. We reserved an high-quality room for the rest of the days and... More

I approached it from Highlife bungalows so could already see... More

I really can't fault the location. Our bungalow was beachside and really just wonderful. But the staff. OMG! The patriarch was shy but quite nice. All other female staff were satisfied to grunt their way through the day. No smiling. No service. Baht hungry. Overall my stay was great but I put that down to the idyllic location - the... More
