Perfect location, spacious rooms & delicious food

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Mar 2024via mobile
Lovely spacious rooms, beds aren’t very comfortable but everything was clean. Hotel is big and has 2 nice pools. It’s within walking distance to everything and you can get to railay beach easily.

You need to be careful of the monkeys, they stole our coconuts when we were drinking them and went through our bags, so if you don’t like monkeys avoid!

Staff were super friendly and the hotel restaurant was very cheap and really tasty. Breakfast also good, I definitely recommend!

I've stayed at Railay Princess a few times now over the past 5 years and their value is one of the best.

While they're technically on the wrong side of the island it's pretty nice to be able to not have to drag your bags as they're closest to the jetty once you arrive and leave & the 2 pools are very decent with a nice sunrise view from the one above the lobby and the main one not being too crowded. The breakfast is decent too and the food in general is ok.

The rooms themselves while nothing "special" are perfectly decent and clean enough for a 4 star in the princess price bracket and offer decent comfort. You'll want to spend most of your time on the main beach and while not directly accessing it - princess's access is such that it's not a hassle to get to and is a good place to situate yourself for a great stay in railay.

We absolutely loved our stay at Railay Princess Resort and Spa. If you arrive at the pier at Railay East the hotel is directly on the right as you step off the pier. The resort was extremely clean throughout with a modern decor. Our room was huge with a king size bed and balcony. We got 2 complimentary bottles of water in the room each day as well and coffee sachets etc. The infinity pool was a lovely touch and there’s always a member of staff on hand to take your orders for food and drink. The only slight downside was the breakfast, there wasn’t a great deal of choice if you’re not too keen on an Asian breakfast.

Been her many times but I think this will be the last. First room allocated had no hot water for 2 days. Reported to reception 3 times and each time was told ‘check again’ although was never told it was fixed. Eventually I was told that 1 of the 2 water heaters was broken. They reluctantly moved me to another room on the third floor. Room had a putrid smell. Pool above reception the water pump/filter has broken so using an external pump. Pool is slight green and cloudy, no way I’m getting in that one! Back pool is near the septic tanks which clearly are struggling by the stench of raw sewage. Breakfast poor, most hot dishes are cold.

The breakfast was good, the training center was ok. Didn’t notice much of the staff, but the room was clean. The location was good and the hotel was overall a nice and quite place. The pool was good and it was almost enough sunbeds everytime. The shower in the room was bad but the aircondition was good

This hotel has both pros and cons. We stayed here for four nights. The pros were spacious, clean rooms and two nice pools. The hotel also has a decent gym, but the air con didn't work while we were there. Breakfast is ok.

The cons: monkeys are almost taking over the place. If you don't like them, you should not stay here. They are watching over the pool, raiding the area for leftovers of food and drinks. The staff should really have someone cleaning and putting away all leftovers regularly, or put up trash cans that can be be closed properly, if they want do get rid of this problem.

I found it odd that they put up a sign warning guests not to make the towels dirty. The pool has a sign that says "food and drinks are allowed"... Perhaps they should warn guests about the aggressive monkeys and tell them to not leave food/drinks unattended instead. That would make more sense.
