Hotel nothing like advertisement
some of the staff, in particular Goom in reception were really helpful and nice. The hotel is in a great location, central to everything.
This is the only hotel we had to pay for up front and now I know why. The hotel beared no resemblance to the website or photos. The room they gave us originally was a double instead of a twin. The room was situation directly about a pub with a band. The bed was rock hard, the room smelt, the toilet was not concreted in so moved. They advertised a restaurant and room service that did not exist. The water in the room was never replaced which in Thailand is a necessity. It was a budget hotel and had it not been advertised as a beautiful resort in the website we would not have been as unhappy, you get what you pay for. We watched over the 5 days we were there a stream of people come in, look at their room and leave again. By the time we left the signs showing the luxury hotel and advertising the restaurant had been removed, and I dont think it was the staff, they did everything they could to help. next time I will read the reviews, I will stay elsewhere, and I wont pay up front. The only redeeming thing about White Sands is the location and a few of the staff. I still love Phuket and will be returning soon, just to a different hotel.

Nice hotel, large room, walking distance to beach
5 minute walk to Patong beach, friendly and helpful staff, large spacious room with living room and small kitchen
very pleasant stay at the hotel. the entrance and exit was not so convenient or grand. but the room was very spacious with separate living room and kitchen areas, which was good for few couples or friends travelling together because the living room can be used for a small party. the staff was very helpful and friendly. the location is also very convenient. two stores down to the left was a minimart that opens 24/7 and the beach is only 5 minutes away on foot. the only downsize would be the parking lot.

Friendly staff,good location,great buffet brekfast
great buffet breakfast with eggs anyway you want, near to beach, many great tv channels.
overall it is nice hotel,friendly staff and good service with large room as i stayed in the royal suite that have two air-conditioner with good working condition as its very cold and silent. otherwise it would be a perfect value-for-money hotel nearest to patong beach as most of the hotel that is near to the beach with a large suite room that i've surveyed are more expensive.

White Sand Resortel
Although the location is good but the environment is dirty and unpleasant smell. The room is big but feature is very old. At night there very noise and not suitable for children stay. The only good point is the staffs are quite patient and friendly.

comfortable rooms
Clean & quiet
Pleasant stay in a busy town near the beach.The airport transfer was quick and hassle free. We were greeted warmly at reception.All requests of staff were met promptly and happily. Our room was good. It was comfortable and neat.Our mattress was a little hard for our liking but we survived. A day at the beach 20 seconds down the road remedied that.
