We love this hotel! We went with our 4 year old son and we spent wonderful days. The service staff is super nice and super friendly. The pools are great and the beach view is beautiful. The breakfast is wonderful. We had no inconvenient in the days we were there. I'd go back there for sure!

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel. The place is very nice, clean, big rooms and a nice beach. Just the staff was cold, I really had the feeling that all managers where away on holiday themselves. Nothing seems to be organised, staff tried to be helpful but looked uninterested at the same time. Except for the hotel lobby staff... More

Nice hotel in front of the best beach in Railay. Good breakfast (but I missed sliced cheese). We've got a big room with a nice view to the forest, we could see a lot of monkeys and beautiful birds from our window. They have lots of chairs for you to lay down and relax, and also a big pool!!

The resort itself is decent - stayed in the newer buildings which were great with spacious and well-equipped rooms. Only complaint was the sewer stench that wafted through the bathroom. Day 1 when I arrived, I made the mistake of eating food at a restaurant in the nearby walking street. That evening, I had the worst food poisoning of my... More

The room is clean and well maintained especially for the price. The beach and views can't be beat. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sand Sea and felt that if offered the best value on Railay. The chairs are nice when you need a little shade but don't want to miss the view.

In holidays with 2 children of 5 and 6 years in March 2016 it was beautiful. We made just some days but it was very good and relaxing. Breakfast could be a bit more various (fresh onions could be substituted by some more fruits). The only annoying think that does not depend from the hotel is the arriving of all... More

The rooms were clean though at times we smelled some funky smell from the drains in the bathrooms. Service was average. Breakfast was Terrible. The location was Fantastic. Overall good value for when you can a good price as we did during low season. Low season seemed full this year at this resort.

Our room was just lovely in a cottage style villa just near the pool. It would be good to know in advance that the resort does not sell any alcohol or supply any bacon at breakfast given that most westerners would typically expect that sort of service. Nice location thought.

If your looking for a picture perfect place then this is one of them, but each up has a down. Great views from the sun bed area and so close to the beach it's unreal, family friendly and loads of things to do (at a price) we opted for a superior bungalow which was ok would have liked a bit...
