We stayed there for just one night and it was too long. They have a real problem with mould in the tiny cubicles that they call double rooms. Marie - the Manager - is the rudest person I have ever met. We orderd two cocktails around 21.45, they made us pay right away and then she just switched off all... More

You checked the room, the cheapest one, beforehand and afterwards you complain about the size? We can't find the mould. Yes, we mostly close the bar at 22.00 hrs to give our hotelguests the quiet we promise. We don't know of anyone called Marie and what I heard from the staff you started to shout at them and one of...

In our emails we only confirm a booking if the booking is paid beforehand. On request we tell if a room is available and always add 'you have to pay in advance to confirm the booking'. Payment can be done by credit card or by Thai-bank. More

We were going to stay in the resort next door but having looked at the rooms at independant bo the rooms in rock sand were far superior, cleaner and all for 100b more. We paid 700b for a fan room including a breakfast of tea, toast, eggs, fruit and fruit juice. The staff are friendly and speak good English. The... More

If you are looking for a nice, quiet room right next to the beach, go to Rock Sand. You reach it after a 5 min. walk on the white sand beach (no other road connection) We stayed at room no. 10. Nice, little room with one double bed and one single bed. No balcony, just fan, shared toilet and bathroom.... More

I stayed in Rock Sand 8 days during the end of wet season. Price was very very low and breakfast included . I stayed in ocean view room with fan. Room was clean but very standard. But I could not expect more for this price. I can complain a little about food there. Breakfast menu was very poor - 2... More

We hope you found a bed to your liking. We know how difficult it is for all the different wishes people have. And yes our staff is very friendly and nice, I dare say it reflects the attitude of us, the owners. The staff appreciate us as much as we appreciate them. Normally people compliment us on the total package... More

Stayed 2 nights mid November. Arrived at the 7/11 next to the KC hotel with suitcases and gave Rock Sand a call asking if they could pick us up in their boat. We probably should have given them some notice but within 5 minutes they had arrived to pick us up from the beach outside the KC. Great start and... More

The location was unique, maybe a little bit too much, the main problem is the access about 1 km walking through beach. Forget suitcases or arrange a boat transport. As an isolated place you can expext problems with basic things, like very limited water in shower and for activities you have to always walk long way. Anyway, the rooms are... More

"The location was unique" is the start of the review and it ends with "the place is ok" (understatement). The uniqueness: the location, the access and the charm. It is a 500 meter walk over the beach, and yes, when it is a (very) high tide and storm we are hard to get to, call us and we will help.... More

I am sorry you lost your key in the middle of the night, after your night out, and went to find an other hotel. In the morning you confronted us with your complaints and your moving. Nearly all our customers want to stay longer. More
