Quite hard to find at first as set back but good location once we did. Bring a torch for nights walk home though. Room big and spacious with lots of monkeys. Pool large but never enough sunbed and missing a bar for drinks. Mai disappointment was our lack of any view. Other than that, good services, facilities and location

The best thing about this resort is the pool! It has a fantastic view looking over Railey Beach and you can also enjoy watching the rock climbers from here too. The rooms are very basic but adequate for the price you pay. There is a slight walk from the boat drop off to the resort, which is partly uphill, but...

This place is fairly budget friendly, and yet you feel like your in a really expensive hotel! They don't make a big deal of it but the pool is amazing! It's a proper infinity pool with the most incredible view. The staff are delightful, very friendly and helpful. They gave us a map and pointed out all the best beaches...

Hotel is up quite high on the island and we took wrong route up going a little further. When arriving at reception my clothes and cap were drenched in sweat with the heat and the hills tackled to get here. Welcomed with a drink which was not to either of our tastes. Something icy cold like water would of been...

This place is located a 10 mins walk from the beach and you will need to go up the hill. It can be tiring at 35 degrees:) other than that the view is amazing. The swimming pool is nice and the rooms comfortable- the only exception are the pillows!! Please get some decent pillows.

We spend three nights at this hotel and highly recommend it. We strongly advise using their great pick-up service, which was handled very smoothly and professionally (making use of a minibus, a long tail boat and a tractor!). We had a lovely room on the top floor with an amazing view. The room was clean and well equipped - and...

We enjoyed a lovely stay in a the standard room. On lots of the reviews we people seemed very concerned about the walk to the Hotel. We got the boat to Railay from Krabi and arrived on East Railay, it took about 10 mins walk. It is up hill but not too bad. If you come from Ao Nang you...

We got a good deal for stay - the view of the cliffs and the garden and pool were great for a weary traveler. Room was clean and nice (main building). Not top class amenities (no hand soap in bathroom, only soap automat in shower) but good for the value in Railay. There seemed not to be a pool bar...
