“big pool, suit for family”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

First thing I noticed was the pool is super big!! this hotel is absolutely perfect for family. They held different activities each day and each hours for example water aerobic, yoga, thai boxing, painting. You may have to pay extra for some of the activities though but mostly are free. We rented charter speed boat to Koh hong, honestly it was too expensive I won't recommend this.

Room Tip: we stayed at suite room which was quite far if you walk from the lobby but so close to the beach and...

Bonjour Sawasdee krab,

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your feedback about your recent stay with us. I am happy to read that you enjoyed our pool and the activities we offer for our guests. I am sorry to read that your excursion to Hong Island was not up to your expectations, we do regularly survey other excursion providers in the area of the same standard and are of similar prices for what we offer our guests.

I do appreciate you sharing your feedback and it is my hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future.

Yours Sincerely,
Christian Schlegel

The hotel is not in a great location. Between the pool and ocean is a road and while you're sitting in the pool or in the lounge chairs, you can see trucks driving back and forth. The stretch of beach that goes with the hotel is fine but to the right is a long pier and occasionally massive ships will dock along the pier. The hotel has a lot of activities so if you're there with kids, it's excellent. Windsurfing, archery, Thai boxing and a massive pool that's just gorgeous. I would definitely organize excursions through an outside company as the hotel excursions are much more expensive. But that happens at any big resort. The on-site restaurants are very good, and the ice cream shop is fabulous.

Nice pools, nice rooms, nice staff, nice furniture, nice location, nice yatches, nice food and most important nice Hotel. This hotel is all inclusive resort which offers almost everything. I really had a very good experience. Location is bit outskirts but for relaxation + luxury this hotel is a truly good option. Dont forget to see the golf course.

Stayed during December with my wife for 7 nights. The resort is massssive.. The same goes for the pool - any bigger, they'd have to name it a sea!

The rooms are clean and spacious. Hotel staff are excellent. Special thanks to hotel nurse who treated my ear when it got clogged from jumping in the sea.

Breakfast is excellent - every type of food you can imagine and chefs available to cook any dishes fresh.

Had dinner twice in the resort and was disappointed. Very expensive and taste was poor.

The resort is very far from town and the hotel doesn't offer free transport so bear this in mind if you plan to be close to action in krabi town.

This is an excellent family hotel.

stayed here in end april 2014 for a wedding. The pool is fantastic, the service very good and a stay i would definitely recommend.
the beach is not the best and is about 20 min from ao nang but im clutching at straws here.
if what you want is a chilled resort holiday, you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: choose the rooms on the 0 level with direct access to the pool. opp side of the golf course

The food at sofitel was ordinary but overall the resort is amazing. Very well maintained. However the air conditioners were not that efficient due to the heat perhaps but over all worth the money. Food could be a problem if you are not fond of authentic thai food.
