I have been in Thailand for three weeks now and this was BY FAR the worst customer service I have experienced thus far... it was almost offensive. I woke up very sick one morning and needed to go to the hospital. Not one person was helpful on directions on where to go or anything. I asked three people to make... More

Sand Sea Resort was just as the previous rewiews describe. I enjoyed my time there. It's on the West side or Railay and located right on the beach. The restaurant , and swimming pool is facing the beach. There are other resorts jotted along the same beach neighbouring this resort.~~~ Sitting by the poolside you have a view of cliffs... More

Cons: Uncomfortable bed, shower with only setting as boiling hot water and large amount of mosquitos in the room no matter how hard you try to kill them all more keep getting in. Staff speak no English which I do not mind however they are very unhelpful and... More

The Sand Sea resort is located in the west side of Railay Beach, the most beatiful side of the beach. The hotel contains a lot of bangalows, two pools and a nice restaurant. You can enjoy the wonderfull view of the morning beach while doing breakfast, you can swim at the beach or the hotel pool, or you can just... More

Before i say anything - be aware that you use a long tail boat to get to Railay, where you hop off into the water, little higher than ankle deep and carry your own bags to the resort. A good 300 mtr distance. So pack wisely, and dress appropraitely We stayed at the resort for 4 nights as a couple.... More

We enjoyed staying here for a couple days. The food is not what we were hoping for and we stayed for 6 nights. We were ready to go after a couple nights, but had pre-paid for 6 nights. Our room was modern and nice. The sewer smell gets to you after a while walking around the property. We didnt like... More

Went here with my boyfriend in July. The Hotel is located on the best Beach of Railay. Very nice rooms.... Located on the west Railay Beach. Think its more a 4 star rather than 3. Nice staff. Quick check in.... A little shop near. So far very good!!...... ........ Would visit again :-)

A magnificent resort on West Railay Beach. On arrival we were not satisfied with our allocated cottage so we opted to pay in a bit extra to be upgraded to one of their newer rooms (Grand Deluxe King Bed) which was fantastic. My wife and I loved our five night stay there.The resort has two beautiful swimming pools and an... More

One of most reasonable options in Railay. Located in heart of Railay West beach, clean and spacious room, two pools and direct access to the beach. We are very happy with our choice but doesnt seem the same from the staff, they are helpful but dont carry smile much (guess they are not happy to work there). Also it would... More

We are staying for a week and so far we are having a great time! Railay Beach is amazingly beautiful! Surrounded by sheer limestone cliffs, huge limestone towers and thick jungle! There are no cars and no hawkers. The only way into Railay is by long tail boats. The resort is a reasonable size and has 2 good size pools.... More
