Not worth the money. Breakfest is included but minimal. Room had a couple of issues. First day they fixed the balcony. Toiletwater keeps running. Bed light was flickering, let it change. People at front desk were very nice. Pool upstairs was also very nice. With toilets close.

I saw the promotion for Thai Travel Together on facebook and I agree to book the room which i know is the last date for making the booking under this promotion but staff insist to make my booking on the next day! And I got the call from the hotel on next day which can not book this promotion anymore because too late and they say apologized for misunderstanding and no any responsibilities. I booked direct rate to the hotel again which they said it included for ferry but staff ask me to pay for twice!!! Room looks too old and facilities was not maintain. Will definitely not going back and not recommend to any friends!

I'll start with the positives: reception staff are kind and friendly. Room is nice and comfortable, and fairly modem. The location is convenient - right off the East Railay Pier. East Railay Beach is not good though, unsuitable for swimming, and smells pretty bad, like sewage, especially when the water receded. Now the negatives: breakfast pretty bad, and the restaurant staff set a record for us - for the first time in over 2 weeks of travelling in Thailand, nobody greeted us with "sawadika!" on any of the occasions. Restaurant food wasn't too good, even though not too expensive either. Best to go outside to the little pedestrian street to find food. Two mornings in a row, there was not enough hot water coming out of the shower, shower temperature was lukewarm at best.

Where do I Start... The words Spa and Resort shouldn't be used in this hotel because there ist nothing Relaxing here. When we Arrived at the Hotel it wasn't really welcoming, and the path to the Reception is very narrow and it stunks. At the front desk a stuff member took care of our luggage even thought my girlfriend told him multiple times that she want to do it her self, but he wouldn't listen or didn't understand. As we entered the room the guy just walked around the room and did nothing and wouldn't leave until we gave him a tipp. (I worked at a hotel myself and this kind of beehavior is just unexpected especially when you krone yourself as a 3 to 4 star Resort). Big Big minus Point here. The room was equipped moderately, nothing spacial and for 40 € a night way way to overpriced. The body of water in front of our room stunks really bad and make the Balcony useless. The entire room was lit by only one light at the entrance. (Really Really bad and uncomfortable Light) The breakfast is a Class of it self for being not good!! As a Vegen your only option is to eat either water melons or pineapple. The coffee was bad and if you want a Latte or Cappuccino you have to pay extra even when you payed for breakfast. (I personally did not enjoy the breakfast, and we have to grab it somewhere else) The Property Promote it self as if they are on the beach but you can not swim at this side of the island. Due to a error at our next stay in Bangkok we had to take a Domestic Call, we kindly asked the Receptionist if we can use there phone for 5 minute, and they told us that we have to pay 15 Bhat Per Minute!! What ??? And the checkout, was normal it was quick but really not much, they did not even say anything like "Bye" its was just an "ok you can go now". hahaha The Island its self was ok there is just one small street where all the shops and restaurants are, some are good other are bad.

A functional, yet charmless, resort on Railay. The breakfast buffet features pre-fried eggs in a tray and some fairly disgusting hotdogs masquerading as sausage. The coffee exceeded expectations and was palatable. Rooms are functional with no effort made to lift them above modestly comfortable and easy to clean.

Checked in after reading good reviews and hearing positive things from friends. Upon check in, I was informed that the restaurant is closed so breakfast is served at their sister resort, ten minutes walk away on the beach. I know this is covid times but really? 🙁 Concierge made a point of showing me the kettle but informing me there is no coffee in the room or minibar. If I want a coffee, it's free of charge but I have to ring the front desk. Isn't that a lot more work than just providing coffee in the room? WiFi is spotty to the point of non existence. There is no hot water in my room but they promised they are aware of the issue and working on it. I was excited to have a bath tub in the room but it was so dingy and dark in there and with no hot water I don't think it'll happen! TV is old and the remote doesn't work properly. If you are a light sleeper, request a room on the high floor otherwise you hear every step above you. Hoping the rest of my stay is uneventful and the hot water returns!

Very nice holiday stay. I couldn't find any fault, considering remote area, everything was as expected. Minor issues with bathroom, I would not even mention. Price to Quality this is a very good place to stay.

A group of eight of us recently stayed at Railey Princess Resort. (4th-7th September) We have been to Railey many times in the past and have enjoyed the breakfast offered by Princess on quite a few occasions. This was the first time we stayed at this resort. We pre-booked four rooms for all three nights, with two couples splashing out a little extra for the room with a bath. Summary: 1. Check-in was a nightmare - some guests were offered welcome drinks, others not. We were not offered anything. A keycard was given to us with directions to our room. No help with the luggage - again, this service was offered to some guests at random. The keycard did not work the first or second time. After returning to reception for a new keycard and waiting outside our room for about 40 minutes, we were let into our room. 2. No wifi in the room - we were on business leisure travel, and wifi was a basic necessity we enquired about before making our booking. We were assured there was wifi in the room. Staff came to the room to try and sort it out, but the problem was never resolved. 3. No hot water - this was a big disappointment, especially for the two couples that paid extra for the room with a bath which they could not enjoy. The staff explained there was a problem with the hot water and that it would be fixed and we should wait an hour for hot water. This was around 8 pm. By midnight there was still no hot water - and for the rest of the weekend. Not once did we have hot water. 4. Breakfast was hugely disappointing. Princess is known for its breakfast. We went there with high expectations only to find way undercooked eggs (or no eggs), and a below-average selection of fried rice, ham, sausage, bread, cereal, and fruit. Sometimes there were pancakes. One morning was so bad, we left and ate at another establishment. I asked to move to another room and was told we couldn't. I sent four emails to Princess Resort after our stay, before finally receiving an email from management blaming full occupancy, budget cuts, and shortage of staff. Not once did they offer a solution or remedy. This was definitely NOT a four-star resort, I have stayed at resorts that offer a much higher service at a lower cost. I will not stay at this resort in the future nor recommend it to anyone I know.

We had booked and paid for this hotel in January (for April 2020) then Covid-19 happened. We called and they were flexible to reschedule our dates to July. Just spent a week there and didn’t want to leave! They had upgraded us from a deluxe to a superior room. 2 gorgeous swimming pools (infinity or nature based), generous breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. Unfortunately the climbing in Railay is temporarily closed so we didn’t extend our stay to the second week (you can still climb on Tonsai, hike and abseil on Thaiwand wall). We are 2 adults and 2 children (75 baht each for breakfast) and sofa bed available for sleeping and they provided extra sheets pillows and blankets). Bathtub, shower, daily water refill. We loved the gated car park on Ao Nammao pier to Railay East and complimentary boat service at scheduled times. Overall, we will be back for sure! Thank you for your hospitality during this difficult time.

El hotel es espectacular. Las habitaciones hermosas, limpias, impecables. Tiene vistas muy lindas, dado que está en una zona selvática. Cuenta con dos piletas y servicio de bar en cada una. Aunque te advierten tener cuidado con los monos, para mí le da un plus, al menos para los que nos gustan los animales. Podés encontrar monos en los techos y en los jardines. El desayuno es muy bueno. El restaurante es un poco caro. Recomiendo comer en el centro que está a pocos metros. La playa más cercana es la única fea de la zona. Hay otras tres playas cercanas que son hermosas. The hotel is amazing. Beautiful, impeccable and clened rooms. These has a pretty view, due to the hotel is in a wild zone. The hotel has two swimming pools with a snack bar service each one. Although you will be alerted about the monkeys, in my opinion they're a plus, at least for people like us who like the animals. You can find monkeys onto the roofs and over the gardens. The breakfast is very good. The restaurante is a bit expensive. So I recommend you to eat out in the downtown, which is very close to the hotel. The hotel's closest beach is the one ugly beach in the town. You'd better go to other three beaches. All of them are beautiful.
