DON’T EVEN BOOK TO STAY HERE BY MISTAKE!!- the receptionist was unfriendly, not at all helpful and not bothered!! Whats more is that once our bags (four of us in two rooms) were kept in the rooms (all 4 strollers were locked) and we went in search for lunch, the two locks on the doors of each room were opened, the combination lock of my stroller was professionally broken, others had key lock which were opened too, everything was looked through, 100 USD and 100 UK pounds were stolen (luckily I kept the rest on me), and jewelry for STOLEN from my friend’s bag!!
Everything was then carefully packed back and clothes folded and as if to show nothing was wrong! All this happened at Sandy Beach Resort, Bo-phut beach in the span of one hour- it was almost as if someone kept an eye on us all the while (we had lunch across the road) and knew exactly what are movements were.
Upon reporting at the reception, they didn’t really seem to care to help or empathize. I am almost 100% sure it is an internal job and the staff of this place are very much involved given the circumstance the theft happened and the kind of real time information on our whereabouts and knowledge to all the locks the thief seemed to have. It was a very unfortunate incident that tarnished our otherwise wonderful Thailand trip.
It is a shady resort is in every sort of way- the pictures on the website and hoardings are completely different to what to actually get. The water pressure in the taps was terrible. Shower was almost non-existent, the geyser was probably just for show, room lighting is awful. Not at all a good place at all.
Sandy Beach Resort is nothing but a 3rd grade place!
