"We booked the hotel with Agoda.com - including a free upgrade to a privacy cottage. I wouldnt recommend paying extra for a beach facing villa because you are facing the pool then the beach so you dont get any privacy in your room - privacy cottages are set back a little, we were in room 9004 which was on West Railay as the numbers get higher you are heading to East Railay which isnt as nice. If you read any comments about the staff then i would ignore them - i would say that the island has mixed cultures from the surrounding countries. The thai people are lovely and yes some of the other staff that work their are little abrupt but i would ignore it We got to the hotel via traveling from Krabi airport to ao nang via taxi (500bhart) and then longtail boat to west Railay - be aware of low tide and having to wade out in the sea with bags - it cost 100 bhart each and goes when 8 or more people were ready. Recommend only looking at hotels on West Railay if you want the beautiful scenery - hence why East railay is cheaper and to be honest smells with sewage. The tide goes at lunch leaving a muddy shore behind. I think this part of the island is the trade entrance for the hotels. Boat ride from Railay to Krabi 45mins longtail boat - nothing really worth visiting in the town - would suggest Ao Nang for shopping and if you need western shops this is your place. Hired a longtail boat for half a day 1600 bhart - island hoping around chicken island and Pra Nang Beach worth exploring - Ko Phi Phi is at least 2.30hrs away via longtail boat. Rayavadee Hotel is a must for dinner for at least 1 night - it is one of the top 100 places to stay in the world and whilst it is expensive to sleep their the restaurant is good value - you pay about £30 for wine compared to about £10 back home but to be honest we were sick of Singha beer towards the end of our tip. I would say that the Railay Bay resort which is next door to Rayavadee is the second best hotel on the Island es"

"It was a superb experience, the location of this hotel is the best among all the hotels in railay...infact the dropp off and pick up point of all the long tail and speed boats is the sand sea hotel on the beach which makes it the most convenient location on railay west beach since sea is the only mode of transport to the west railsy...the hotel staff was very attentive and helpful...specially chollette the front desk manager and the bell boy saman were very impressive...all category rooms(i checked all categories) including the basic ones were very well maintained and very spacious...you have a free internet excess throughout the hotel...there is a minimart within the hotel premisis...an amazing spa facility....and one of the best restaurants for food in the railay(though the service at the restaurant was disappointing).... No room service and alcohol free hotel are the two biggest drawback if the hotel..."

"This was our first time traveling in the Krabi / PhiPhi / Railay area and we booked a different night at each hotel. We found a good deal on Rayavadee and decided to splurge for one of the nights. It far exceeded our expectations and it was the best place we've ever stayed in Thailand. The facilities and staff were great, the bungalow felt like a nice house with the room being upstairs, food was good - but the scenery is the best part. It was hard to stay at other hotels after this because nothing else can come close."

"I absolutely loved staying at Railay Garden View Resort. I loved it so much, I stayed there four times! And I will definitely stay there again. You are in a little oasis at Garden View and while the rest of Railay might be taken over by concrete resorts, this place has retained a natural environment couched in the jungle on a hillside overlooking the sea, and it still feels like Thailand. The views from the resort are stunning and waking up each morning and sitting on my balcony to enjoy the scenery was amazing. I’ve stayed in both the sea view and the garden view bungalows and even my garden view room had some view of the sea, so you really can’t go wrong. The rooms are very charming as well with pleasant décor, comfortable beds, a powerful fan, mosquito net and a safety box. There are only cold water showers, but this never bothered me when I was there because the weather was always so hot. The wi-fi worked very well all over the resort and the included breakfast was great. The resort is just a short walk to restaurants and bars on Railay east and about 10 min. to walk to Railay West or Phra Nang beach. The staff at Railay Garden View is exceptionally friendly and hard working and I was always warmly greeted. The resort manager, An, is especially welcoming and personable and great at fast check ins, helping you with special requests and giving you any information about Railay you might need. You can also organize rock climbing lessons (full or half day) with An who is an excellent climbing guide and Garden View has a climbing shop to set you up with all the gear you need. Railay itself is a beautiful spot to stay for several days or more. It’s calm and not crowded with tourists, shops or massage parlors like neighboring Ao Nang or Phuket. It has a lot to offer in terms of activities and although it’s not an island, it certainly has that small and local island feel to it. "

"Located on Railay East (with mangrove trees along the shore), the area is peaceful and quiet, surrounded by beautiful flora and fauna, and the highlight of our stay was meeting the owner’s friendly dog, SeeMuk! The room we got was value for money on an otherwise expensive island, however the image shown in the booking was for a different room. Ours was a basic double bed with fan (in a row of 4 rooms), with a shared bathroom outside. May not be suitable for guests with difficulty climbing stairs as there are about 50 steps to get up to the hotel. "
