    Great resort!!”

    Staff were very friendly and helpful. Allowed us to check in early and didn’t charge us extra for our 8 year old for an additional bed, presumably because it was low season I assume as it was raining almost everyday when we were there for a week. Convenient to walk out to the main road for restaurants and massage places though you can get everything in the hotel itself. It has a private beach but the tide was high in june so we can’t really swim as the sea was rather rough..

    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.

    Great place for family with young children”

    Located near the Khao Lak center, the resort gave me and my family plenty of enjoyment during our stay. Staffs were kind and always showed us grace smile and the swimming facilities were perfect for my little 6 year son. Every morning we were wakened up and heading for the breakfast restaurant, we could find the staffs clearing the swimming pool and other around facilities. Will recommend to other knowns and agoda members.

    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.

    Bad Services ”

    I was came with a baby and requested an early check in. However they said their guarantee c/i time is 2pm so we left the reception tried to do some activities. At 12 noon I tried to check if the room ready or not as my baby got slept. Then fo staff advised me to come to lobby and talk with their manager. It was surprised no one approach me after approximately 15 minutes waiting at lobby although i was informed to concierge but still no one approach us. So we left them and back at 2pm. I was informed my disappointment to room Division Manager and she was issued an afternoon tea coupon which i really appreciate it. Next day we would like to use it and called to operator which restaurant that accept this voucher and she said coconut bar. We went there but coconut bar staff refused, informed we can use it at Jellyfish bar, then we went to Jellyfish bar, the staff said can't use it there only can use at Mango and Pineapple Bar. Oh God, do they give this simple information to their staff? How come different bar staff have different answer. At the end we didn't use it and i informed about it too to the Asst. FOM. She said that it can be use at all bar but it doesn't change anything. We were dissapointed. Hope they can improve and do some training to their staff to get more their products knowledge. Wifi terrible (you can see from many reviews), there is no shuttle services just to go to the main road, bell man suggested to take a taxi but it was ridiculous to take taxi for -+ 500m? However I love their housekeeping team. They made my day with their warm smile and their friendly small talk although they can't speak english fluently at least they tried to do their best. Pools are fantastic, breakfast also great and the f&b team (even their trainee) at the floating market restaurant was responsive to clean the table and i would like to personally thanking them. Overall I am happy with the resort but hope they can improve their services. Appreciate if someone c

    Everything about the hotel is beautiful except the communication. They really need to put at least one person that speaks good English and understands English at the main reception. It is a challenge to communicate at times. The lady who walks around taking reviews ahas good English though. Otherwise we had a good stay

    Great family resort with lots to do”

    Stayed here for 2 weeks recently with our 5 y.o. and we’re never once bored! Great pools, each one unique. Activities everyday for adults and kids, affordable restaurants on site and super close to the village with dozens of great local dining options also. We stayed in a pool access family room which was spacious and well laid out. The on-site convenience store makes it easy to pick up essential supplies. Only negatives were the water in the kids pools being not a clean as the other pools and they could improved drainage in some parts of the resort which tended to build up large puddles after some rain. Also, if you plan to walk/run on the beach, make sure you head south as there’s an aggressive pack of stray dogs living around the north end.

    Not great”

    We stayed at 3 different hotels in Khao Lak and this was by far the worst. Really smelly rooms - even after complaining and they attempted to fix it. We had terrible food (we had breakfast, room service, pool bar and manta ray) if you stay here definitely eat out. Rooms were good sizes and the hotel is in a great location where you can walk very easily into town. The hotel also doesn’t make the most of its beach front location - there is no bar to get drinks at sunset - such a shame as this tends to be a standard in all other beach front hotels.

    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.

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

    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.
