          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.

          This hotel is really good, breakfast vareity of food and staff are well trained during breakfast time. We stay 6 days and we had different food each day. 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

          Many facilities. If some people should like to avoid children they can choose to do that. Prices reasonably and the food has a high standard. The staff is friendly and everything is kept clean and tidy. All in all a very good choice all year around.

          Good hotel, nice rooms”
          I’d say the hotel is good, not exceptional- it’s starting to look a little dated but the bedrooms are really nice. The timetable of kids activities is comprehensive and there were a lot of things my son wanted to do (age 9), he enjoyed the freedom of being allowed to sign himself in and out of the kids space and find friends to play with around the hotel grounds. The kids play pool was perfect for our baby and there were plenty of loungers available for us at any time of day. The breakfast was good and varied. Restaurants in the resort were overpriced but there are loads of local restaurants within walking distance just up the hill so it’s not a problem. Likewise massages are 5 times more expensive than they are if you take a 5 minute stroll along the beach. Worth paying the extra to have a room with pool access, the kids loved it.

          A great holiday resort ”
          We had a fantastic holiday, the best swimming facilities for our 3yr old were fantastic, he loved every minute. The food was also very good. The resort is a few minutes walk to the high street where there are plenty of other eateries to try. Our only niggle was we had a family room (which was fantastic) but every night outside our room load music played till 9.30, which wasn’t ideal when trying to get a little one to sleep. There is plenty of other accommodation around the resort, so just check your location.

          Excellent Staycation for Parents & Children Alike”
          Unlike the normal Thailand resorts that were packed with travellers, The Sands were spread over a large area that had plenty of space for couples (read : parents stressed out by young children) to rekindle their romance whether by sauntering along the long, sandy beach or having a massage by the seafront; and children with the sprawling water theme park and kids' club. We went there for our anniversary, and it was an excellent area for a staycation and our family had a lovely time indeed. Special mention must be made towards the friendly and nice hotel staff, whom were always accommodating and with smiles all time around. Definitely worth future visits!

          Beautiful hotel, but felt let down by the bedroom. ”
          Beautiful hotel in a stunning setting, right by the beach. The only let down for me was the bedroom. I felt it didn't live up to the 5 star rating. The bathroom hadn't been cleaned properly from the previous guests as there was long hairs all over the sink and around the sink area. I complained to the maid who came to make the bed up. This would be the only negative to the hotel. I stayed in Khao Lak for one week, but decided to move to another hotel because of this. I found another 5 star which was equally as good and less money by the beach. I don't think there is any excuses for a dirty bathroom in any hotel, let alone a luxury hotel.

          It had activities anyone could participate in, lots of sun lounger so there was never a rush. Lovely facilities and staff were helpful. Did they have a adults pool but it had quite a few children in which made it pointless... as no one was made to follow the rule. It was a good family oriented place.

The staff went above and beyond and nothing was ever too much trouble. The tuk tuk drivers (especially Mr Voot) were also amazing. In fact, I have to say that this has been one of the BEST hotels that I have ever stayed at and I travel frequently. Thank you Viroth for making our trip so so memorable. I will DEFINITELY be returning.

          The Sands was just wonderful. The room, the pool, the restaurant and the grounds were outstanding. As a couple we found the pool access room a wonderful perk and relaxing. The main pool near the beach was quiet and restful. The childrens area looked like great fun also but not for us this time without the kids. The week we had was very relaxing and did not dissappoint. We will be back.

          We stayed 3 nights which was just enough for us. Pros; Very nice overall ambience. We loved how the main pool overlooks the ocean then lush lawn with sun beds flow right into a beautiful beach. Amazing sunsets from here. Rooms very big, clean and new with direct pool access. Nice breakfast with huge selection. Staff friendly and welcoming. Cons: rooms not very well insulated. Can hear noise from other rooms around and inconsiderate people swimming late at night (something to consider when booking a pool access room) . Can imagine when resort is at full capacity would not be very private either. Very loud air conditioner! Did not have the best sleep unfortunately.

          The Sands is a wonderfully comfortable resort. The grounds and rooms are immaculate, and excellent value for money. The rate through Agoda was better than packages offered elsewhere. Massage by the beach is recommended. Consider eating outside the resort for dinner, but buffet breakfast and lunch by the pool are fantastic quality, and reasonable price too.

          Just left The Dands Khao Lak after a two week stay. It is a really really nice resort. Our included buffet breakfast never failed us and there was always something different each day as well as all the usuals. Eggs everyway, bacon, beans, veggies as well as quite a few Thai options. There are 3 massive pools as well plunge pools for many of the rooms. We had a pool room and found it extremely comfortable. Semi seperate lounge room and large bathroom as well as a King size King - massive bed. We did ask for a second mattress topper as the bed was quite firm. It was fitted with no fuss that day and made a big difference. The pool access was unreal, and safe with its own glass fence with gate. You will get to know your neighbors too as the solid partition wall goes nearly to the ceiling- it is 100% visually private. Food options were really good - there is a themed food night every night and there is something for everyone - even a picky eater. Always kids menu / food available. Thr
