The rooms were beautifully maintained and cleaned we had a pool access room and the pool off our room was cleaned every morning. Our kids loved the water park in the middle of the pool areas and we spent many an hour playing in there. The buffet breakfast was huge and had many a selection for even the pickiest of eater cough cough my 2 year old. The hotel was also very accommodating when we asked for a late check out as our flight wasn't until 10pm they allowed us to have the room till 5 and with 2 little boys that came in very handy I must say. All in all we loved the place and will 100% be going back when we can

Excellent hotel and stay in every way.

All round fantastic experience at the sands. Kids club was great and new kids club looks sensational (under construction). Lazy river was a hit and pool access room was great. Buffet was lovely each morning. Food pricing was reasonable in comparison to Australian pricing.

Excellent value for money package.

Pros: Clean, well presented and friendly staff. Good location.
Location: Being locate right in Khao Lak meant you could walk out to many resturants for lunch and dinner.
Enjoyable stay the provided what it said. Spent 10 days on family holiday with two young boys. Staff were very friendly. Would stay there again.
