Visiting restaurant in the hotel with very high ratings you expect a lot more. This 12 hours meet was everything else what you were waiting. Even the potatoes were raw.

Located by the pool area this is a pleasant place to have a drink or lunch during the day. Fresh and tasty food. The pizza is a hit! The menue offers a nice variety of dishes. Have a drink before or after dinner

Went to this restaurant for lunch. Wasn't very hungry so I ordered something smaller, ordered "chicken satay" which was chicken satay with steamed rice, even pointed to the item I wanted on the menu. Meal came and it was the larger size version of chicken satay without steamed rice. I asked the waitress she said they assumed I wanted the... More

A great escape from the burning sun to heap a cold drink or some food. Provides both Thai food and international cuisine. And with possibility of a healthier choose. Great thanks to Pu and Mimi

We have visited The Sandbox many times and this visit was very disappointing. Waiters seemed to walk around aimlessly whilst our drinks sat waiting to be delivered to our table. After 10 mins we went and got them ourselves from the bar. The staff are lovely and you cannot fault their desire to please but this was a bit of... More

Fantastic food, and exceptional service. Staff were always bubbly, cheerful and on-top of whether we required anything else, always topping up on water and asking if we enjoyed the food etc. We were always made welcome, and treated like VIP's specially by Pu and Mimi. Ruben was fantastic on the floor getting to know guests and overseeing the lunch/dining experience.... More

The food overall was good. I had the margartia pizza twice and it was very good. They have a good bar as well. Some of the drinks can get pricey though. Located right on the beach and there is only outdoor seating (for those that don't like to eat outside). Staff was all friendly and attentive as well. I'm sure... More

We have used this restaurant before and I've written great reviews for it's location, friendly family atmosphere and good food. But location is all important and unfortunately you can get a seat that simply looks at a mountain of used glasses getting bigger by the minute. Not a great sight, in fact for a 5* hotel just unacceptable, street food... More

Our beachside hangout beckons everyone to come and play, feel the cool breeze and the sand beneath your feet, dine, have a drink, join the barbecue, watch the sunset, take a dip, and have some fun. It's a natural choice for children, and soon any lingering cares of adulthood drift away as well.
