White Sand Krabi Hotel
Ranked #101 of 111 Hotels in Ao Nang
Reviewed 9 December 2010

I stayed here with some friends and we have all stayed in Ao Nang dozens of times before and tried many of the hotels, but this was the first time at White Sand.
It is ok, and if other hotels were booked out, I would probably stay there, but not my first (or second) choice. The water pressure in the rooms is NON EXISTENT as is the hot water. We had 2 rooms as the first one the A/C broke down, and both showers were the same. Impossible to shower and wash your hair with a dribble of cold water.
The hotel is also quite noisy as the nightclub area is directly across the street, so if you do stay, ask for the rear of the hotel (no view). The pool on the roof is small, but ok, and there is Internet and cable TV available.

We paid for the hotel next to nothing and considering that, it was a great stay. Hotel was clean, we liked the street view from balcony, breakfast was ok. Staff was very nice (let us use internet free etc.) Location is also very nice; one of the best restaurants near, about 500m to beach. We have no complains about this simple and cheap hotel.

Booked via Agoda for 7 nights B&B - stayed just 4 nights - checked out early for the following reasons:- Room facing street looked ok on arrival, but closer look revealed damp and mould on ceiling, shower temperature went from hot to cold constantly, shower tray flooded constantly, bad drainage to blame, NO water late at night ie 0130am throughout the night, EVERY NIGHT!! Could not use toilet, wash hands,make coffee/tea etc EVERY NIGHT for 4 nights. Total Electricity failure on numerous occasions, were told by front desk it was usual for Ao Nang- LIES ! - I went over the road to Ao Nang Orchid Hotel, and 3 shops and ASKED re electric - ALL had electricity which was running normally (ie; NO generators required )!! 32" Samsung TV - not tuned in and no assitance offered to rectify. Security at night non- existent, observed hookers and sad western clients entering our hotel at 3/4am unchallenged by sleeping doorman. I personally had to shake him to waken him at 0245am to get me some coffee/water,missing/not working in our room -UNBELIEVABLE!! Observed a hooker and client using room for 45 minutes and she then walked back across road for further business! This "hotel" is the worst one we have EVERY stayed in over past 20 years in numerous countries. Been to and in total of 10 Thai resorts/hotels, including Ao Nang Villa March 2009 - this DUMP is to be avoided EVEN if you get it for FREE !! Went round sea front to Red Ginger Hotel for the lost 3 nights - £5 each p/night extra and it was FANTASTIC. NO HELP from Suwan Hotel Group or AGODA - we have lost ALL trust in AGODA and will advise fiends and colleagues to use other GOOD agents. Glad to answer any questions you may have about this place, IF already booked, CANCEL NOW - Trust me, we are not snobs/prudes or winggers - this is an utter craphole of a "hotel".

White Sand Krabi resort is actually a small hotel located right at the centre of Aonang. Its strategic location has made it very popular because tourists can find practically everything they look for in the vicinity of the hotel.

The hotel is very clean, the kitchen is small but well-maintained. The breakfast that comes with the accommodation consists of both the local and western varieties. The staff are very friendly and obliging though they are not well-versed with English. It is in fact an ideal hotel for those who travel on low budget because. the rooms are cheap compared to other hotels nearby. Occasionly, if you are lucky, you may find some girls sunbathing topless next to the rooftop swimming pool.

Ah night, there are many stalls in front of the hotels serving exotic food such as Green Curry, Chicken or beef noodle soups and Tom Yam seafood at very reasonable price.

For those who are looking for exciting night life, they may visit the numerous bars on both sides of the street just opposite the hotel. These bars start their business only at night and cater for those who enjoy drinking beer and watching the sexy girls performing pole dance throughout the night from 10.00 pm till 2.00 am the next morning. The mushrooming massage parlours in Aonang also offer traditional Thai massage at 200 B./ hour - a cheap and painless way to relax.

stay at this hotel could be a wonderful memory, but the service at reception was very weak.
very large rooms with balcony, very comfortable bathroom, cable TV, but are available only a few channels. Air conditioning works very well, there is a fridge with drinks. Housekeeping at a high level - service attentive, polite and smiling. Rooftop pool is a great idea - is there a beautiful view of the mountains and the sea. Breakfast included in the room was a buffet - a tasty and plentiful.
During sleep can interfere with car traffic, since the hotel is located on a busy street full of bars and nightclubs. A major drawback is paid and very expensive Internet!

I stayed here for a very short duration during my vacation in Krabi, and this hotel is located a little off the main street in Krabi, but not far enough to be an issue. A 5 minute stroll gets you to the road parallel to Ao Nang beach, and there are shops, etc the moment you step off the hotel.

The service is prompt and friendly, but I would rate this a little lowly because when I tried to get a shuttle van to my next hotel in Trang, they tried to hard sell me a private taxi instead, which I did not appreciate. I managed to get a shuttle van in a different place off the street instead.

The rooms are clean, spacious and there is nothing to fault the room itself for the price we paid. However, if you are like us, and got a room facing the main street opposite the Raggae Bar, then you better have earplugs. There is very loud music which goes on until quite late that will compromise your quality of sleep, so either you make sure you state that you want a room away from the noise, or find another place.

Breakfast is fine, the usual simple breakfast.
