Reviewed 16 February 2014

We stayed in Stylish Pool View room that is behind main building. It is quite large room with huge bed and spacey bathroom. Hotel provides in the room everything you need, from large flat TV to beach towels. If you don't like sitting on the bed there is sofa in front of TV and sofa on the balcony. Two minor remarks in regards too the room. First is very low privacy in the room since balcony in facing exact same rooms in other side of hotel in just several meters so if you want to to be seen in the room you need to close heavy curtains which again closes fresh air and makes exit to balcony complicated. Other remark is that staff will not replace shampoo and shower gel on daily bases if bottles are not completely empty even hotel is right on the beach which means a lot showering.
There were sauna, 2 pools, pool table and place for kids, but who cares when you have beautiful beach just in front of the hotel. Breakfast is excellent, it is buffet with both Thai and standard choice of food and lot of fresh fruits.
Staff is very polite and nice, but in general big problem is communication as staff hardly speaks any English, even girls at the front desk and reception, but that is the case in whole country.
Anyway I would love to come again.!

Room Tip: I can't say how recommendable is to take room in Stylish Pool View on ground floor with direct a...

I have stayed here more than once I think about 3 times and its great for family's and couples,
first time was with my wife and kids we had the big family room which is one of the best I have ever been in kids loved it.
High quality hotel for brilliant prices you can pay a lot more and get a lot less.
We also just stayed me and my wife had a pool access room which was also 1st class, its in a great location right on the beach close to everything pool is excellent for adults and the kids pool is pretty cool to also has a small slide, breakfast is good very clean, only one down point was the parking if you had a big car, but apart from that 9.8 out of 10.

Room Tip: Family rooms are well worth the extra money, they are all good pool access is fun to

We are at the start of a 2 month trip around South East Asia and thought that a relaxing few days in the Unico Grand Sandara Hotel would be a great start after a very busy lead up to embarking. After getting the train and then a taxi from Bangkok (5 hours total) we arrived at 2200 to discover that the room we thought that we’d chosen (a pool view) was in fact a dump of a ‘Superior Room’ overlooking a drab side street. The 2 night staff were polite but not much help. After we complained we got a ‘we’ll sort it out in the morning’ and were moved to a Delux room (exactly the same but with a view of the sea). The bar was closed, the 24 hour room service was in fact 18 hour room service (which we’d missed) and the mini bar was empty. By then we were tired and our 14 year old daughter wanted to get some sleep. The manager was expected at 0800 the next day so we went to sleep. After breakfast the next day (good) we were told that the manager would be in soon. Then that they would be in at 1000. Then at 1100. Then we were told that they couldn’t change it as it was a problem with the agent (if they did, they would be in trouble with their Indian Head office). So, ‘contact your agent’ (the OnHotel web site) was the limit of their help. As the Delux Room is exactly the same as the Superior room ,that doesn’t count as ‘help’ in my book.

So – don’t expect any substantive customer care at this hotel, just lots of passive deference. I would not return but if you choose to try, make sure that your booking details state very clearly that you are by the pool. The other room types are not worth the money. They are really tatty (awful beds, holes in the ceiling, holes in the curtains, dirty air conditioner etc), grubby and very poor. If we were paying $40 per night, OK - but we’re paying a lot more than that. We have also checked Expedia today and could get the pool rooms now at less than we are paying for this dump of a room.

We had paid in advance and are only here for 3 nights so we can put up with the poor service. We only came to Cha Am as this hotel looked so great – this is a really rubbish start to our holiday. If I were you, I’d go somewhere else.

Room Tip: Do not accept a Superior or Delux room - they are awful.

The hotel has a central location just across the road from Cha Am beach. The rooms are very good and quiet, good bed and airconditioning, cleaning is ok. We had a room on the second floor, balcony with pool view. The rooms with pool access is probably preferrable.
Breakfast was fine with eggs made to order. Excellent wifi, which was included in the room price. The pool did not feel very accessable if you did not have a room with direct pool access. Personell at the hotel was friendly, but not overly so. The hotel had a playground, childrens pool area, probably excellent for families with small children.

I stayed here during the new years, upon my arrival i was greeted by the staff, they were friendly and was always there to assist.

Since i came with my family, we took two rooms and luckily we got the connecting rooms. the room was comfortable and stylish, the room had a view of the pool and the bar. the bathroom was quite big and clean.

The hotel has a lot of facilities for the kids, as in the kids room and the kids swimming pool on the second floor.

Breakfast was served as buffet style. Would suggest that the hotel add more variety for vegetarians.

Overall, i enjoyed my stay at Unico Grand Sandara. located right near to the beach and a lively neighbourhood.

The relative new hotel is situtated right on Cha Am beach sepated by the road. The rooms are not very spacious but clean. Breakfast is served in coffee shop overlooking the road and sea and is nice.
Breakfast was served as buffet and one has choice between local and western dishes. The serving staff was kind and smiling.
There are plenty of shops and restaurants in the neighborhood.

A Lovely classy hotel. Staff are most welcoming, friendly and helpful. Clean linen and toiletries are provided. The room was very comfortable and tastefully furnished. Sound proofing was adequate.
The roof top pool was a nice feature. Breakfast was buffet style, cooked foods, juices etc. Could have had more variety of hot vegetarians meals that did not contain egg. A lot of the food was for meat eaters. Best to go early as the good food goes quickly. WiFi is provided and there is a public computer in reception. The safe jams, had to get it unlocked & my visa card was missing. It was an inconvenience but i got it stopped so no loss of money. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay..

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are good.
