Sea Sand Sun offers really nice rooms considering the price and we generally like Mae Rumphung beach area for spending a few days away from Bangkok. The rooms seem newly renovated, clean and nicely decorated with good quality furniture. The aircondition is new, cool and quiet. There is even a microwave and hot water kettle to prepare some snacks.
However there are a couple of things which made me not want to return again anytime soon.
Firstly, the water quality of the pool is questionable. Normally you can see the bottom of a clean pool, but not so with this one: water is greenish and if you stand in the pool you can't even see your own feet! But it does not smell bad. Strange though.
The absolute worst though was that they are BURNING THEIR TRASH on the lawn, just 20 meters from the pool. We were taking a swim when suddenly an AWFUL STENCH came wafting across and forced us to leave the pool area in a hurry, the smell of burning plastic was just unbearable. What kind of hotel management would allow this to happen I wonder??? It's absolutely appalling. We were talking to a couple from South-Africa at the pool, they originally booked for 6 months, but were planning to leave after only 3 weeks because of the pool and the trash burning, no wonder. If you value your health and the environment, stay away!More
