Sand Sea Resort With Family Of 4

Sand Sea Resort With Family Of 4

We are looking at booking Sand Sea Resort for a week next Christmas. Our boys will be 6 and 7 and we all want to stay in the same bungalow.

Sits like booking.com are saying we need to book 2 separate rooms which isn’t an option, the Sandsea website says some rooms have a maximum capacity of 4 but it says they only have 1 kingsize bed. I’m a bit confused.

Has anyone stayed at the resort with a family of 4 and what was the room set up, how many beds, rooms ect.?

Also are there any other accommodations on Railey west that can fit a family of 4 in one room? As most are saying we need 2

Thanks in advance

Many OTAs can't book more than the beds in the room. But you can add rollaway beds from the hotel. Try contacting the hotel to see how many rollaways they can put in the various room types.

Then book for just for the adults and arrange two extra rollaways directly with the hotel.

Is there a reason it has to be West side ? West does have a nice beach but you are talking a 5min walk from the East side and depending on what sort of accommodation you book and where it sits, you could effectively be the same distance back from the West beach as some of the East side resorts anyway.

Yes you'll have nicer views at breakfast and from your pool West side but some of the resorts that side have service issues and are resting on their location in my experience.

Before booking accommodation, how do you plan to enter Thailand for one week in December?

We prefer the west side due to the views and the beach as you say. It is our first choice if we can get a suitable room.

Our plan B is sunrise resort on the east

"We are planning on next Christmas 2021."

Yes, I understood. But I wouldn't book any hotel before being sure you are allowed to leave your country, there are flights, you get a tourist visa without quarantaine...

Yes, we don’t plan on parting with any cash until the situation is stable

Thanks for the good advice
