Quiet and next to the beach

Pros: Peace and quiet.
Cons: Clarity on bedding configuration would be good.
Location: Beach on your doorstep, plenty of other restaurants and bars nearby.
Beautiful gardens and great air conditioning. Two pools to choose from, one with sea views. Best asset is that this resort is quiet - bliss.

Hotel on beach

Ok hotel, room very nice. Disappointed with staff, left to fend for yourself at breakfast...Not a lot of choice . Room not serviced till about 3 pm. Hotel is right on the beach. Pool a tad small, no bar at this hotel. Monkeys come right into the resort.

Amazing accommodation seconds from the beach!

Cons: Perhaps the resort could accommodate for pickup from the jetty in a buggy to help with baggage in the humidiity
Location: Rock climbing, snorkelling, long boat tour of near by islands, bars, restaurants, THE FRIED CHICKEN IS THE BEST!
Two friends and I stayed in the executive suite of the Sand Sea for 5 nights. Railay is so beautiful and our favourite part of Krabi. The room we stayed had 2 large beds, air con, day bed on the front verandah and large glass doors/windows which aloud for a lot of natural light. The bathroom was lovely and had a separate bath, a shower with a massive shower head. The Aircon was powerful and often unnecessary at night. The room was clean, and was cleaned every day, with the option of fresh towels and fresh sheets daily, toiletries and water also got replenished daily. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Our room included breakfast buffet - which wasn't bad, but was just the stock standard asian breakfast buffet. The resort has two pools, one that overlooks the ocean, and another in the back closer to the rooms - they were clean. Massage facilities were available, but i didn't utilise these. Overall we had a lovely stay at Sand Sea!

Great resort - would definitely recommend

Pros: Grand Deluxe Rooms were very large & spacious Position -pool area was situated right on the beach and was lovely Shower and toilets located to pool
Cons: WIFI!!!! Absolutely terrible in the room - kept dropping out, though it worked well at the pool right near reception (needed for work)
Location: Incredible location // close to everythung - most restaurants a short walk away to Railay East.
We had a Grand Deluxe room which was gorgeous! We had booked 2 rooms - 1 x King and 1 x Twin beds for our teenagers. On arrival we were given 2 x King beds - we queried and were offered a mive but this was further away from the beach/pool area.

Great spot but resort and rooms need a refresh.

Pros: Location, relaxed service, BYO beer to the restaurant!
Cons: Laundry Service - no room pickup (dropoff at the minimart) but they still want to charge full service prices. Room Service - none available.
Location: Railay beach has become a victim of it's own beauty with Longtails, speedboats and daytrippers from Ao Nang and Kraby cluttering the beach all day.
My family of 4 adults stayed 5 nights in 2 Junior Suites at SandSea Railay Beach in Feb 2016, my impressions were mixed with the location being prime but not offering very good value for the near 9,000+ baht per night rack rate (per room) they are asking for a 3 star hotel. I received a 50% discount by booking ahead on Wotif and I suspect few people would ever actually pay the full rack rate. Our rooms were in a very good spot with views over the front pool and beachfront, however they are showing wear and tear, particularly in the bathrooms. There are no fly wire screens in the rooms so you either had to leave the bathroom closed up (sauna) all day or open the window and deal with the mosquitoes and other bugs in the evening. The Junior suites are quite spacious and could easily accommodate additional beds or interconnecting rooms to allow more flexible configurations for travelling families, however this is a problem I have found with many resorts in Thailand. The staff were generally very nice but communication in English was a challenge for some, let alone other languages, even Chinese. It was my first time outside of a strict Islamic country where you could not purchase any alcoholic beverages on the property, however the advantage was that if you could track down some reasonably priced booze in East Railay or Ao Nang they are quite happy to allow you to BYO and even supply you with glasses to imbibe it.
