White Sand Krabi Hotel
Ranked #101 of 111 Hotels in Ao Nang
Reviewed March 6, 2014

I stayed at White Sand resort when I visited Krabi with my wife. It was a decent hotel. The staff was friendly and cooperative but I felt they lacked the finesse in customer handling one generally finds in better, more upscale, hotels.

But the breakfast was good and the location as well.

But, I guess one has to run after the staff to get things done. For instance, our room didnt have chairs in the balcony. I asked them for a pair and they didnt give us until our checkout.

Its situated on the main road of the Ao Nang. The rooms are spacious and well lit. The staff is full of ladyboys. Main market is on walking distance from the hotel. Swimming pool is a small and water is extra chlorinated. You can find better hotels in this price. This is not the chain hotel from white sands.

Although this hotel is in a great location (Main Street and close to the beach), the hotel was a complete disappointment.

The hotel was dirty with mould visibly growing on the walls and roof. The balcony had no where to sit, the air conditioner did not work properly. The shower was broken. The staff were abrupt and rude and we were given a standard room when we paid for a superior. Although we addressed this with the staff they refused to change our room and would not refund the difference.

I have been to Thailand on 7 occasions and this was the first time I was disappointed by hotel staff and horrified by the uncleanliness and lack of maintenance throughout the hotel.

The hotel is completely overpriced and I would not recommend that anyone stay at this hotel.

We booked this hotel under the name of Ao Nang Pavillion on the hotels.com website, and on arrival to Ao Nang found out that no such hotel exists. After an hour or two of searching we finally found out that the real name of the hotel was White Sand.

On arrival at the hotel, we found the staff to be unfriendly, and our deluxe room with garden view to be a ramshackle cottage with another bungalow's back wall as view. The room was full of mosquitoes because the door did not fit the frame. The images on your website do not match reality at all, e.g. instead of paintings on the wall we found naked electric cables.

This hotel is in the heart of Ao Nang and just 5 minutes walk and you are at the beach. Right opposite and below the hotel you get amazing street food which is the yummiest part of your trip to Ao Nang. Do not miss on the fresh catch of the Jumbo Tiger prawn and BBQed Red Snapper being grilled right before you. There are plenty of massage parlours to relax you and every alternate shop offers you day trips for the 4-island tour and Phi Phi day trip (Not to be missed at all). Snorkelling is a part of these trips and is an amazing experience. The hotel staff also is friendly and upgrades the room is available. Eateries are just superb around the corner and you get wolrd cuisines available everywhere.
The nighlife is something to die for, hence it may get little uneasy if you are not a party animal and early to bed.

This could be a great Hotel in Ao Nang if the owner paid a little more for faster, reliable internet and some English Movie Channels, for rainy days. The staff have said that they have many of these complaints from visitors but the owners continue to do nothing to improve these two things. Everything else about the Hotel is good and worth the money to stay. The pool is great on the roof top and very clean. The breakfasts are good and the Chef is more than happy to cook on request. The views from the Delux rooms are exceptional with a lovely breeze from the ocean/road side. They can be a little noisy on the weekends as the nightclubs across the road have the music blaring until 2am. The rooms are nicley renovated and kept reasonably clean. We were here when three bus loads of Chinese tourists stayed two nights and kept us awake as they seemed to have no regard as they slammed their door night and day. Hope they fix the internet and if not you can visit MacDonalds 30 metres away for fast free internet.

Room Tip: Back rooms are quiet. Front rooms have air.
