We stayed at the Sands in December and were really impressed. It's clearly a new resort which is both good and bad. The furnishings are all virtually brand new and everything is immaculate and it's great to have new sun lougers. (On the down side, some of the staff, while really nice, seemed new).
Value wise we thought it was excellent, we loved Khoa Lak (it's worth the hour drive from Phuket airport as Patong is disgusting - we refuse to stay there). The beach is superb and main pool is great and the breakfasts are brilliant. In fact, it was probably one of the best breakfasts we've had, huge choice, and really fresh ingredients. (Breakfasts in Thailand are far better than China or Europe).
We stayed for a week, which felt a bit short (wold have loved a few more days), but will try to plan a return trip on the way home from Europe next year.
We've stayed at quite a few places in Asia, and value for money wise, The Sands is up there with the best.
