We stayed here twenty years ago on our honeymoon, and came back for our 20th anniversary this year. We stayed in one of the older Bungalows which is likely the reason for my 4 star review as opposed to a 5 star one. My guess is the newer Hotel style rooms do not suffer from the same mildew odor and nonexistent shower water pressure that our older Bungalow did. However, the location can't be beat. It is on the more Scenic West Beach where there are fewer hotels although a good deal of beachgoers during the day. If you wake up early, the trees near the restaurant are often filled with lemurs, monkeys, or toucans. It doesn't get better than that!

We all give the Sand Sea a 5 star rating as it delivered on all its promises. It is not a top class hotel, nor does it claim to be. It is right on the beach, there are two clean pools, our "Chateaus" were clean and bug free, the restaurant was fine and the staff spoke English fine and would bend over backwards for you. Our 4yo granddaughter found plenty of friends during the weekend., and we enjoyed the sunsets from the beach. Our a/c was straining a bit, but my son's was fine. Try to book airport transfers through the hotel (500 baht door to door).

It was a relaxing 2 weeks at Sand Sea Resort, Staff are very friendly and Mr Ton exceed on my expectations showing customer service to every guest which I experienced coz he is always there lending his service no matter how tired he is😊, he is an asset of the Sand Sea coz he is fluent in English which makes it easy for us to communicate whenever its needed, the Manager was very accomo.dating as well. I wish next time they will serve Beer in their Restaurant so no need to go further down the Walking Street. Sun set and the rest of the view in the Railay Beach West is extravagant when at the beach front of Sand Sea Restaurant, highly reccomended.

Having been to Sandsea Resort 5 years ago, I picked it again because of how great it was the first time. It didn’t disappoint. We stayed for 3 nights and it was wonderful. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful including Mr. Ton. He went above and beyond to help us every single time we saw him. He even drove my friend to pick up her motorbike in Aonang on his day off!!! Superb service and genuine kindness from all staff. The resort was clean, the pool was gorgeous and watching the sunset from their restaurant were the other highlights. One thing they could improve were the bathtubs! Poor plumbing and loose taps need to be fixed before they have more guests returning in high season. Oh I almost forgot -The free boat back to Aonang was greatly appreciated. Thank you Sandsea! See you again soon!
