Ok, so I am an avid Trip Advisor reader, I go a little crazy researching, and sometimes it's a little unnerving to read some of the reviews. So I'm going to try to be as helpful as possible and write what was missing for me in reviews: Overall - wonderful, beautiful resort. The location is one of the most stunning...

The drive from the airport took almost 45mins, then another 1/2 hr wait for the boat. We werent expecting that, but it was worth it. The bungalow we booked was very cool, native, the outdoor shower was refreshing and the whirlpool bathtub made for a very bubbly bubblebath which my wife loved. The bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows....

I read most of the reviews prior to our stay so generally knew what to expect. We stayed in June which is off season so had the ability to upgrade rooms and easily find pool chairs. The resort is clean but not 5-star clean or quality. The pool area and beach is the best I could find in all my...

Date: 18 Aug 2010 We booked this hotel for our anniversary week away in Krabi province mainly based on its high rating on TripAdvisor. And it is a real little gem, really. We have stayed at many hotels over the years, often luxury ones with impeccable details and fantastic designs. Price-wise Railay Bay Resort & Spa is on par with...

We stayed in the privacy cottage for four nights. The room was infested with ants and Mosquitos. The bed sheets had old blood stains. When we called housekeeping to change the sheets "she" was very annoyed and insisted the stains were from flowers and not blood. The fact dirty sheets should always be changed seemed to escape her! The staff...
