Lovely hotel, excellent location

Lovely hotel - the staff are friendly, the restaurant is nice and the location is great! We enjoyed relaxing on the beach front everyday! We stayed in a beach front suite which was lovely, clean and spacious. Perfect location in Khao Lak - close to shops, bars and restaurants.

Die Poolanlagen und die Wasserrutschen waren super! Es gibt auch einen Indoor Spielbereich für die Kleinen, wenn es draussen zu heiss wird.

Perfekter Familienurlaub ohne Sorgen

Pros: Pools Playland Bars Ausflüge
Location: 10 Minuten zu Fuss zum Zentrum Nangthong mit allem was man sich wünscht!
Wir bewohnten ein Familyroom mit Poolacces im neuen Flügel welcher erst etwa ein Monat alt war! Wunderschöne Zimmer, sehr sauber und sehr hübsch eingerichtet. Poolzugang lohnt sich mit Kindern auf jeden Fall! Verwandte von uns hatten ein Zimmer in den älteren Hauptgebäuden welches relativ abgewohnt war. Wahnsinns Frühstücksbuffet, auch extra für Kinder hat es eine Riesenauswahl! Verschiedene Pools, Playland usw. für Kids absolut genial! Wer thailändisches Flair in Hotel oder Zimmer mag ist hier falsch, das Resort könnte überall stehen, sehr Modern aber auch sehr International! Weitläufiges Gelände! Sehr viele Liegestühle, sehr gepflegte Anlage!! Thailändisches Essen im Hotel eher teuer aber absolut spitze. Liessen uns am letzten Abend wegen Erkältung der Kinder verschiedene Thaimenus aufs Zimmer bringen, schneller Service, Essen war heiss und wirklich Spitze! Wir würden sofort wieder gehen!!

Rather big, yet nice resort with good location

Pros: Great swimming pool and restaurant areas, good food in each of those, personnel was doing their best and were always very helpful & cheerful.
Cons: Older rooms would require some renovation (rooms and furniture were a quite worn). Personnel and reception english-skills could be improved.
Pleasant Resort with nice and well-kept gardens and pool areas. Hotel has good location, really friendly stuff and even the resort was fully occupied, the crowd seemed to vanish to the big area, so one could feel relaxed. The older rooms would need some renoavation however, and the bed was a bit uncomfortable. The stuff english skills could be improved also at the reception. Restaurants had good menu's and the food was every time excellent. However, the all inclusive was overpriced, from our perspective (not woth unless you're enjoying great amounts of alcohol). Kids were taken into account exceptionally well. The new wing (kids pool area and new kids club) were under construction -> some noise and other disturbance due to it. This was not mentioned on the hotel web pages when the booking was made, even the construction was already ongoing at that time. Also, there was no discount / re-impursement / regrets made by the Resort due to the inconvenience of the construction. For sure, after the construction is going the be finished, the Resort will be even more convenient especially for the families with kids staying at the Sands Khao Lak.
