For a place that claims itself to be 5star resort, the Sands was definitely a disappointment. First of all, although some staffs are friendly, there were many others that came off as rude. The resort offers DVDs you can borrow for free during rainy days, but the DVDs are all pirated. I was also charged for the free drinks I...

The Sands is a short walk from the town, it is well located for many eating places to cater for all tastes. The grounds of the resort are really well looked after and the place has an open feel about it with lots of sun beds around and there's a smoking and none smoking area on the grass facing the...

The staff were very friendly, and welcoming. The buffet breakfast was fantastic, with a lot of options. Some things changed daily so it didn't get boring. The rooms were nice and clean.

Prompt pickup from the airport by the airport shuttle and quick check in. We had booked to stay in a sea view suite and were initially disappointed to have a ground floor room. However ground floor suites have a terrace with sun loungers and easy access to the pool so would recommend them. The weather was hit and missed as...

Stayed for 1 week after a few days in Bangkok. Room lovely and spotlessly clean. Excellent breakfast with lots to choose from.
