    The property was located right on Railay Beach, which is gorgeous BUT very difficult to get to and from. In order to get to the airport in Krabi, we had to take a golf cart, boat, and car which took over an hour - the hotel was generous in organizing this for a fee but is important to consider.

    This property was in the perfect location. We traveled all of the islands and I fell 💯 confident we’re choose the right place. The rooms closest to west side were more pricey but well worth it. The breakfast buffet was perfection, and makes getting you day going a breeze. Kayak, swim, take a long boat, purchase essentials, all right at the location. This place rules ! Additionally,,,, they drove us in the golf cart back to the east side dock when we checked out with our luggage GREAT HELP!

    This was an ok hotel. The Main swimming pool was green. I have no idea what they were doing to it that was green but they never mentioned anything about it when we checked in. Then we got to our room which was gorgeous however the toilet would not flush and I had to grab two men from the surroundings and pull them into my room for then to try and fix the toiled. Why? Because when I called reception they said they would send someone but 30 minutes later no one had shown Ed up. I asked to be changed to a different room but it was not the same for the same price. When time came To take us back to the pier....they had no gulf cars available to take us even though I had requested them. On the good point I had a great massage and me and my son had fun kayaking!!!! That part was awesome! Food I. The restaurant was good

    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.

    The only thing this “resort” has going for it is it’s location. The rooms smelt like sewage, the water pressure was awful, the rooms were not clean or aesthetically pleasing. I have stayed in many hostels that have better staff and standards than this resort. It was quite disappointing to be paying for such a low quality stay. Again, the only thing good about this place is that it’s in a great location and I’m sure they know that which is why they charge what they do for such a low quality property.

    Sand and Sea Resort was a great place for me and my husband while we stayed in Railay Beach. We had a deluxe bungalow which was clean and spacious - nothing fancy but had everything you needed in good condition. The bathroom and shower were large too. The location was quiet and beautiful and just minutes from the walking street with tons of restaurants, bars, and souvenir shops. The breakfast buffet was perfect, they have a variety of choices and an egg station to make fresh eggs or omelets of your choice. We did not eat there for other meals. The reception staff was friendly and I recommend booking transportation to/from the airport. It involves a van, tuk tuk, boat, then golf cart and everything was on time. They carry your stuff along the way too. We rented kayaks for the day through the resort as well. The west side where Sand Sea is a better choice than the east side - you have the beautiful beach and it wasn’t smelly like other areas got. My only con for the resort is they allow smoking in the pool/outside lounge areas which deterred me from ever laying out there. A solid choice for a resort when staying in Railay!

    We loved the location of the property. Having never been to Thailand, we lucked out in deciding to stay on Railay. The breakfast was really nice and the ambiance, eating while the waves trickle in is pretty fantastic. Normally if an ocean is nearby we spend all our time there, but the pools were almost freshwater I swear! They were sparkling clean and my family had a lovely time. I would absolutely recommend the resort!
