Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed 2 nights in a 3 person bungalow with a view to the ocean. Overall, great experience - clean, quiet and pleasant stay. There is also shampoo and conditioner provided as well as big repellent. Suggest to use bug net and do not get scared of animal sounds during the night. Loads of monkeys and other wildlife there.

Breakfast has quite small choice, eggs (made in different ways) or panckakes (3 types). Had also instant coffee and tea available at all times. Free unlimited water refill at the check in counter at all times.

Did not have warm water but it’s quite hot there anyways so did not need it at all.

If you want to go to the main restaurant street and to the west beach, you will have to walk a bit - 10 mins. But worth it.

The garden view resort is on the quieter east side of Railay and is the second to last hotel from town. You must hike up several sets of stair in order to get to the reception and/or rooms but the view is worth it. Although the rooms do not have AC there is typically a breeze blowing through to keep the rooms cool. The rooms are clean, shower is large and the bed comes equipped with a mosquito net. There are water refill stations scattered throughout the property so you can fill your bottles and stay hydrated for free. Breakfast was your standard American breakfast with choice of drink. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I would recommend staying at this resort.

This eco resort is very peaceful and nature. We walked from the public pier about 15 mins and just need to go a few steps up to the resort. We stayed in a private bangalow with river views. We loved it and want to come back again for top view room. The restaurant was closed due to covid situation but they provided coffee, breads and some easy snacks for our breakfast every day.

Stunning views over the ocean, great & quiet location away from the “touristy street”, super helpful and friendly staff and a tasty breakfast, especially the banana pancakes!

Loved this place so much we went back for an extra night from Ao Nang for my husband’s birthday.
Breakfast is perfect overlooking Railay East with tea and coffee available all day.
Rooms are rustic and wonderful, we stayed in three and they all had a different feel.
If you’ve done your research you’ll know that there are a few steps up to the resort and there is no A/C but to us that just added to the experience, the walk back from Railay West at night was a joy and a cooling fan blowing over you seems so much more appropriate for the setting rather than a chilling A/C unit.
Staff were excellent and could not do enough to help you have a great stay.

This resort offers a breathtaking view and somehow made me feel like I am co-existing with nature. I loved how scenic our mornings were with the view of the ocean and the majestic islands across the resort. There were really cute resident monkeys as well and were pretty chill. They even had free breakfast, it was simple but decent enough to get the day started.

Small rooms with humidity. Too hot inside. Just one fan working poorly. Barely able to sleep a while. Disrespectful staff with bad manners. Long waiting time. Not worth the money. Definitely there are much better options to stay in Railay Beach

I had such an amazing time at this place. I can recommend to get the top view room. It has an amazing view and you get to come really close to the monkeys! Even tho there’s no aircon, they provide you with enough fans to cool you down!
The staff is really friendly and will help you with any questions you might have! Definitely coming back!

The upshot is my wife and I had a great time during our week at Garden View but our stay was tainted by theft, perpetrated by the staff. Overall the place was pleasant, the included breakfast was sufficient, the location (despite other reviews I've read) was great, and the staff were friendly and attendant. I wish I could leave it there.
The day we left we locked a small bag in a locker behind the front desk, as we had each day of our stay, and retrieved it as we checked out. This bag had our valuables in it, including 5000 Baht and two credit cards. All previous days, everything had been kosher when we retrieved the bag in the evening. When we checked out and left for Krabi, it wasn't until I was on the bus that I looked to find 2000 Baht and one credit card missing. I didn't want to believe it, so I searched all my belongings, tried to think of who else could have gotten to it, and came up empty-handed. I counted the money before I locked it away that morning, and it was light when it came out. Gee, the manager, was the only one with the key. So he either stole from me, or let someone on his staff steal from me. And not for nothing, I tipped them 10% of my week's stay.
It doesn't end there. After two days on the road, after reconciling the great time I had with the feelings of betrayal and invasion, I find out from my credit card that US$1700 has been charged in Krabi and another US$2400 has been attempted: 2 gas fill-ups and 2 trips to a department store. So now I am home making fraud claims instead of flipping through my photos remembering fondly back on the trip I saved three years to take.
Gee, if you're reading this, I hope you fail. I hope shame haunts you. You cannot expect to run a business and allow these sorts of practices, not without gaining a reputation. Thanks for trying to ruin a dream I had, while I only wished you the best. You had nothing but my respect, now I will do everything in my power to slander the Garden View name.
If you're thinking of staying here, stay at the YaYa, or just show up in Tonsai and get a hut there, same standard, for cheaper. Please don't support this place.

Response from Ratree, Manager at Railay Garden View Resort
Responded 30 Mar 2010
Concerning the review written by Wanderingluster on Feb 22nd, 2010 My name is Ratree, a representative of the owners of Railay Garden View resort. I understand that a very serious problem occurred from what you have expressed in your letter. Firstly we would like to express our regret about your money and credit card having been lost; it is an unfortunate thing to happen while on holiday. These allegations are very serious and after we checked the resort we found that there was and are no record about your problem and found out only after you posted your review on Trip Advisor. To help you with this matter should we know who you are and the dates you stayed at the Railay Garden View. Therefore, may I take this opportunity to clarify your review. About the locker, guest can deposit their valuables in the locker which is recorded with the authorized staff member who writes down the information every time. The important step is for the return of the guests valuables, most guests check to see the contents they are getting are the contents they put in and they must sign to show that nothing is missing before they get their things back. This is a process that all guests have to do to prevent problems from occurring. In your case, you wrote that you checked and found that 2,000 baht and 1 credit card were missing while you were sitting on the bus. Did it happen after you departed from our resort and after you had to sign to get your belonging back? Please be fair to us because you never reported the problem while you were at the reception. How do we prove the truth once you were far away? Is it possible that it was lost somewhere in a different time and different place, such as when you were on the boat or on the bus? So we can not and do not accept your allegation. Please reconsider your review to Trip Advisor, if you have reflected that the stories you have written is not true. Yours sincerely, Ratree

Alternative to renting a car, if you will only be going to the Railay area when you are in Krabi, take a shuttle to the boat taxi that will take you to the side of the peninsula that the hotel is on. The hotel is not accessible by car and is a 0.5 mile walk from the dock. The boat taxis is easy to catch back to the main Krabi area, then a shuttle back to the airport. The boat taxi runs until 8pm so if you have a night flight, you might need to find another way there but I'm not familiar with the driving route. Most of the Railay area is not accessible by car or motorcycle and is walking only or you can get to certain areas with a boat taxi. Hope this helps! (p.s. I recommend bringing an easy to carry piece of luggage since the tide rises over the sidewalks at certain times of the day)
