Very Good 8.2 From 713 reviews

Fair 4.0
Price and location great, but there’s a cost.
This review is actually really hard to write. Railay Beach, especially the west side, is absolutely stunning. The beach is clean, good visibility (not clear enough to snorkel), has gorgeous limestone cliffs on either side of the beach, and affordable food and drinks in the strip connecting the east and west sides. Sand Sea’s location on the peninsula is perfect, and I’m not sure you could get much better. We booked a bungalow room with a cot for three people. When we arrived, the room was filled with mosquitos, and we were getting bitten profusely despite having bug spray on already. We informed the staff who said they could spray the room down with mosquito spray and place guards on the windows and doors, but they never did. The bungalow that we had was definitely one of the oldest buildings in the property and was not clean (stains throughout the room). We noticed a lot of the other rooms on the property appeared more recently renovated, and would recommend booking those rooms over the bungalow. Upon checkout, we were told we had taken a set of the flip flops they provided in the room. After an hour of miscommunication, going back and forth to the room, and being told we had used the flip flops that were still there because “they smelled like the had been used”, was really all of the energy we had left for this place. I think our experience was somewhat unique because this is a popular spot, but I don’t think we would stay here again, unfortunately.

Beautiful views, but no alcohol and poor service
The location on Railay Beach is incredible. I spent most of my time lying in the chairs by the beach looking at the beautiful view. The resort didn't sell alcohol, which I found to be a big negative. I had to walk to the resort next door's bar and carry my cocktail back. The food was mediocre but I found all of the food on Railay to be of the same caliber. The room itself was very comfortable but the hot water pressure was very low. We complained about this and there was no follow-up.

Exceptional 10.0
The rooms were nice and clean. Mattress was pretty firm, but have found that to be true of most places in Thailand. The breakfast is good and the view is amazing! Most rooms don’t have views of the ocean, but is a very short walk. The pools are nice, but the one with the ocean view is very busy. We were welcomed with a drink a check in and given complimentary massages. Railay is pretty so small so there is not a bad location,but I would recommend here over the other side of the island. This was more expensive than most of the places we stayed at in Thailand, but again you can expect that with most places in Railay. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it!

I won't go back;
I booked a room specifically the one with a bathtub, however I couldn't use it. The faucet and the shower were too dirty and moldy... I took quick showers only. And also it was super noisy for me becuz the building next was howling! I asked the reception if it would stop for the night and she said it will stop around 10 p.m. Yes, it did at sometime, however it started making noise again before 5! So, if you are sensitive like me, check before you actually unpack your stuff, and make sure you run away as far as you can. Plus, that area smells not nice, too. Well, most of the staffs were nice though... Except the server at dinner kept bring me the food I didn't order;;

Good stay at the Sand Sea.
The Sand sea is in a perfect location on Railay. It is one of 3 hotels in the west side of the beach. The service was great. The hotel overall and the rooms could use a facelift though. We did love the garden villa we stayed in!

Good stay at the Sand Sea Resort
The resort is very well maintained. It felt safe and organized. I didn't know that it was a Muslim resort meaning that there is no alcohol served. They had no issues with customers getting drinks from anywhere else and bringing it on site though so it was completely fine. The one weird thing is the water pressure for the shower and the tub. It was with low and it would take forever for the tub to fill.

Nice room and pool. Boat leaves you off in ocean to carry bags alone thru knee high water No porter to help. Breakfast is dismal

No wifi even though they promise
This hotel is great, however the staff was not helpful at all. Their internet was not working and I told them about it twice and they didn't care at all. I rely on internet to plan my trip as I go, so this was really unacceptable to me.

Poor 2.0
My worst experience!!!
Where do I even start in regar To this hotel! I am still trying to figure out what is luxurious about their ‘Luxury Bungalow’. The place was dirty and the smell hit us right in the face as soon as we walked in. You should have seen the refrigerator! I am not sure when was the last time they clean that fridge cause it had mold. The tulle under on the windows had holes where geickos were able to come in our room. It was uncomfortable sleeping in a room where I wasn’t sure if I would wake with up with an animal walking on me. The bungalow is out dated and need a complete renovation. The staff were not very nice. I was scared to eat the food after cathching a staff member that worked in the kitchen using the bathroom and not washing her hands afterwards. I was grossed out! From across our bungalow we could have seen how one staff member was making the bed. She placed the top sheets on the floor while she changed the bottom sheets. When she was done she placed those sheets that were on the floor back on the bed for whomever that occupied that bungalow. I was so disappointed and disgusted with that place I was counting the hours till I packed my bag and leave.

Poor 2.0
Horrible Hotel
We toured 8 cities through Thailand, and this place was our only negative experience. The staff was extremely rude. There was no internet. There was no one to talk to about anything because no one cared about guest satisfaction. If we could have we would of switched hotels after our first night, but since we booked through it was to much of a hassle. I believe I could of taken that money out of my pocket and set it on fire. Watching it burn would of been more enjoyable than staying at this hotel. I highly recommend anyone look elsewhere for a hotel on Railay Beach.
