Lovely hotel in quiet location
One of our rooms was ready 5 hours late which started the hotel off in a bad way, but after that everything was cool and my family and i really enjoyed this hotel. Good swimming pools, on a lovely beach with nice restaurants inside and nearby. Much better than Patong where we have previously visited. Will go again I am sure.

The Sands Khao Lak experience
Everything was perfect. From Reception to house keeping, all the staff were obliging, friendly and always happy. They even surprised me with a cake for my birthday, which was the main reason of my trip- to celebrate! The hotel itself coul not be faulted. Well maintained garden and facilities, the rooms were serviced the food was wonderful- a great spread for breakfast buffet and Happy Hours! The beach is bordered by grassy areas and palm trees. Room Service was excellent and the menu items were adequate and tasty! The best thing about the Junior pool room where we stayed was the ability to get out of bed and walk into the pool for a swim befire breakfast! Fantastic hotel. We will definitely recommed it!

Lovely resort, good value
We had a very nice stay in Feb 2016. Brought our 7 year old daughter who loved the kid's pool and club. Beautiful grounds. Room was nice - clean and spacious - but it smelled strongly of the aroma-therapy device and scent, or alternatively of mold if you turned off the aroma device. Restaurants had good food and fair prices. Plenty to do on the resort and a short walk to a couple restaurants on the beach. Also a short walk down the main entryway to a 7-11 type store and a few other town conveniences. Didn't go in the ocean here but I heard there were stinging sea fleas and it's a bit rocky. Stick to the gorgeous grounds!

disappointed with hotel in general
The resort grounds are nice, as are the pool, however the hotel food and staff are a let down. Front desk staff are not helpful and resort is overrun with groupon guests.

Great resort, especially for families with small kids!
We really enjoyed our stay at The Sands. The family rooms are spacious and comfy, the entire facilities are just like we wished, breakfast is great, the staff is ssuer friendly and helpful, the kids club had everything our son could ask for. Only minus - the pool was very warm and not too clean (too many people using it?) and the live music in front of the restaurant played every night til 10pm - right outside our room/balcony which was a little noisy. Other than that we would recommend this hotel to anyone who appreciates great service and accomodation.
