We stayed for three days in deluxe pool access room, the kids loved it. There was the water park right outside and kids club, between the two they where busy most the day. It's in a central location can walk to many restaurants and facilities.
Enjoyed our days”
This was a great spot to take kids. Between the water park and kids club they stayed entertained. Food was a bit hit and miss. We had a nice time but I'd say things were priced a bit high for what they were, most of the time. Lovely staff and grounds.
Very beautiful Hotel at Khao Lak”
Its a very beautiful new Hotel at Khao Lak, with different pools, also Aqua adventure for the Family. The restaurant can be crowded at breakfast time. In the evening it can be getting hot at the restaurant.
Best resort I had a swim out and loved it
Perfect for families ”
Beautiful and vast resort, awesome water slides and other activities to keep the children busy. Good food, although Talay restaurant is not as good as it inspires to be. We had a great time, but I wouldn’t recommend this hotel for couples.
Positives and Negatives”
The Sands is great option for your stay in Khao Lak but it is important to note that this resort is LARGE. We got a room close to reception as the pool, kids pool, beach, breakfast was all a little walk away. We also found the pool area pretty noisy with all the people around so upgraded to a room with a private pool area which was really lovely. Another point was that the interconnecting rooms were NOISY, we had horribly noisy neighbours till midnight - so make sure to ask for a room that doesn't have an interconnecting door. Staff are lovely, kids club is amazing, babysitting cheap, breakfast is yummy and well organized. Kids pool area is lots of fun for the little ones and the rooms are lovely. I didn't love the beach area very much and would probably stay higher up (at White Sands of Coconut Beach) at a smaller resort if we return to Khao Lak.
An exceptionalexperience ”
This is 5 star in every way: Location, attention to detail in every aspect. Design. Staff. Food, facilities. The only let down was their cocktails, i would have expected real ingredients and not syrup, that is the only complaint. Everything was outstanding.
Very pleasant stay!”
We love it that the resort is very thoughtful in segregating the resort and restaurant to cater to different crowds so families with kids can have fun while couples can still enjoy peace and quietness. Direct access to beach is great, and facilities eg. pools are well maintained. There are also many eateries right outside the resort. The resort staff are generally friendly but we did find the service at the restaurants relatively poorer and slower. We had to asked at least twice for coffee at breakfast for most of the mornings before the staff remembered to serve us.
Great location, very good resort.”
Easy walk up to the main road where there is a large choice of dining options and bars. The resort is well set out with very good facilities. Room was clean and direct access to the pool a welcome indulgence.
Great property for family! The water park is a must go”
Never stayed in a nice place for a long time! This hotel nails it for good location, great and friendly staff, I got lucky with a nice pool view. Go Pong (a local food stall is just 10mins by walking. Must try if you are there)
Great family hotel with good facilities and service”
A very good hotel for family. You can stay in the hotel without leaving it, with facilities that will keep you and your kids entertain: water slides, lazy river, free pool table, free table tennis table, just to name a few. The service is above average without being overwhelming. The food in the three in-house restaurants are tasty and at reasonable prices. If you are bored with the in-house restaurants, a 8 minute walk to the main road will lead you to many restaurants. All in all, I will stay in this resort if I ever go back to Khao Lak, honestly.
Excellent, variety of food and all facilities are excellent”
This hotel is really good, breakfast vareity of food and staff are well trained during breakfast time. We stay 6 days and we had different food each day. There is 5 swimming pool and there is lot of activities for kids in the pool. Young kids will love this hotel, they will not get bored. This hotel is on the beach, wifi is really good and you can even used your wifi when you are relaxing near the beach.There Is music at the restaurant for dinner and there Iis 3 restaurants. Gym Is really good, staff can speak english. Welcome at reception is really good. Only bad thing is khoa Lak is very quiet town, 5 days is enough in Khoa Lak. At night restaurant is about 10 minutes walk and it is safe to walk, there is music in restaurant at night when you are walking. We recommend this hotel if you are going to Khoa Lak
Great resort for families and others”
Many facilities. If some people should like to avoid children they can choose to do that. Prices reasonably and the food has a high standard. The staff is friendly and everything is kept clean and tidy. All in all a very good choice all year around.
Excellent Staycation for Parents & Children Alike”
Unlike the normal Thailand resorts that were packed with travellers, The Sands were spread over a large area that had plenty of space for couples (read : parents stressed out by young children) to rekindle their romance whether by sauntering along the long, sandy beach or having a massage by the seafront; and children with the sprawling water theme park and kids' club. We went there for our anniversary, and it was an excellent area for a staycation and our family had a lovely time indeed. Special mention must be made towards the friendly and nice hotel staff, whom were always accommodating and with smiles all time around. Definitely worth future visits!
Cool stay with kids”
The hotel has many buildings. The South wing with pool access rooms on ground floor is the newest. Katathani group owners are doing their best branding it into a FAMILIES with CHILDREN oriented resort with quite nice Water Park with 3 children sliders and coolest Kids Club in the whole Khao Lak area. Was cool to stay here. Would give it a full flex 4 stars. Food outlets are quite good when occupancy of the resort is low. Price range of food and beverages is a fair ratio for tourists dining inside of hotels and resorts. Trained staff is definitely an asset.
Beautiful hotel, but felt let down by the bedroom. ”
Beautiful hotel in a stunning setting, right by the beach. The only let down for me was the bedroom. I felt it didn't live up to the 5 star rating. The bathroom hadn't been cleaned properly from the previous guests as there was long hairs all over the sink and around the sink area. I complained to the maid who came to make the bed up. This would be the only negative to the hotel. I stayed in Khao Lak for one week, but decided to move to another hotel because of this. I found another 5 star which was equally as good and less money by the beach. I don't think there is any excuses for a dirty bathroom in any hotel, let alone a luxury hotel.
over rated and over priced”
Staff are unpleasant. Buffet breakfast disappointing, not worth the money. Pools were to hot and closed to early. Over priced for what it was, room had a bad odour in it constantly. Games room closed to early Massage very average, food at beach restaurant was over cooked and over priced, sorry would only say that it is 3 star .
Nice hotel set on a very nice beach”
Very friendly and very polite staff couldn't fault any of them.the resort facilities are kept to a height standard.there are only two negatives one being the breakfast room was always over crowded unless you went in way before 7 am with birds helping themselves to your food if left unattended and rooms in the lagoon view rooms are in need of a refurbishment ,they are kept clean and serviced but the laminate floors have seen better days and the walls in our room 3206 are ready for a lick of paint
Very Nice Resort. Good Location, Good Facility, Kind Staff. It was a little disappointing that the breakfast food was not colorful during 4days. I wish the food would change little by little every day, if possible.
Everything about this hotel is great. We had 9 nights here and enjoyed every minute. The staff were so helpful, the facilities were over and above and our room was fantastic. It was spacious, clean and very well appointed. Would we recommend this hotel.....yes definitely.
