We spent four nights at the Sand Sea Resort in December 2010. We booked rather late and were only able to get a bungalow with a fan. We were slightly worried that the fan would not be enough to cool down the room, but this turned out not to be the case.
The detached bungalow (#110) was roughly half way between the West and East Railay beaches, which was perfect for our needs (we were there to rock climb). A beautiful brick path leads from the main portion of the resort on the West Railay beach to the bungalows.
Breakfast came with our room rate. It was buffet style and great. You simply cannot beat the view from the tables on the beach!
We also had lunch and dinner at the resort several times. The food was good, but the service a bit lacking. Despite ordering both meals at the same time, one would consistently arrive 15-30 minutes after the first was delivered and not without a reminder to the server. In each instance it was a different server, so this seems to be a systemic problem rather than that of one poor waiter.
The hotel does not serve alcohol, but you can walk 50 yards down the beach, buy it at the nearby mini-mart and bring it back to have with your lunch or dinner (Singha does not go particularly well with pancakes, so skip bringing beer to breakfast) .
