Bandara On Sea3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The resort has a good lay out and very relaxing with direct access to the beach...the renovated bungalows by the lawn are very comfortable...good bedding and excellent WiFi...The TV needs some tuning as most of the channels are snowy...breakfast hasn’t seen any much improvement over the years (still no regular butter available - only a salted option ; bread and jams quality is poor ; no bakeries). The service level is also below par (no supervision at the restaurant, no attention given to the tables). Last not the least maintenance around the resort is lacking.
Over all the hotel was a nice experience. Very peaceful and not too crowded. On the weekend there were more local families and friends. Wifi was working well and the pools were nice. Baansiri cottages were just renovated and they were fresh. Pool villa needs some updating. It was a surprise for us that pool villa did consist of two separate houses and it was not the best solution for a family with young children. Also open toilet was an unpleasant surprise. To have an own pool and a view to the beach was nice though. Private shuttle to Ban Phe was nice, the return price was 100 THB per person. Along the beach there are nice restaurants in walking distance. Also massage and other activities are provided at the beach.
I visit this hotel for the first time with my family. So part of the hotel is under-renovation. We stayed in the renovated villa. The villa is nice, modern and cozy. The beach is perfect. We really enjoy our stay. We do not regret it. Worth our drive, worth our time.
The Bandara on Sea must have once been a good 4 star hotel. However, the rooms are now very tired and in need of decoration. Even the large reception area is in desperate need of an upgrade. It really looks like the hotel website pictures were taken over 5 years ago and give a false impression. The food supplied at breakfast was no more than average. The hotel lacks a proper bar area. The beach in front of the hotel needs to be cleaned daily. Wifi in our room was poor and intermittent and the air con unit dripped water onto the floor. We will not be going back to this hotel again.
Bandara on Sea is a nice hotel but far from everything. For us no problem because we had a car. There is only the possibility to go with a shuttle to Ban Phe (around 15 minutes drive) for 100tbt one way pp. the hotel has two nice swimmingpools; one very close to the sea. We had the cheapast rooms on the outside of "lane" and they were great. The staff is very helpfull but because there English is so bad, they can't answer most of our questions. They have realy nice sunbeds but matrasses are not on them. They have them in a pile with a cover which is not watersafe. Personel doesn't lay them on the beds so we have to do that. They are soaking wet! And one pile has matrasses with nests with ants inside! Breakfast is okay but if you want a western one, you have a problem. They only have toast, butter and marmalade or confaks with not chilled melk. Of course you can order different kind of eggs. The hotel is more cosy than what you see on the photo's. The distance from the swimmingpools to the see is very close. Specialy one is maybe 10 meters from the beach
The room is nice but not maintained properly. A bit outdated. Could see lots of rusty corners and edges. Need some painting touch ups. Bath Tub in the Balcony was a very good idea and that's one of the reasons for us to book this hotel. But, it should face outside when you lie down. Then it's much better. Nothing in the Bar. Could put some items. Breakfast was very basic and could improve a lot. Not much cereal items and no pastry items. Swimming Pool a bit dirtier with tree leaves.
Very Nice place and nice location , The room very beautiful, very nice sunset!!the beach si beautiful with clean!!the staff very kind, delicious foods!! We are recommending you can fine the good holidays at hear!! We wound like to comeback again !!
Our family, 24 guests spend the weekend at this hotel. They have different rooms; a very big one on the second floor over the reception to small houses and regular hotel rooms on building No 6. The layout is nice with its own beach front which was clean. However, the beach on both sides of the hotel is dirty with stray dogs. The food was average. My room on the 5th floor was nice and quiet.
If you visit this region I recommend you the mariott next door. I was so disappointed with the resort that I ended up spending the day one kilometer up the road. Thanks Mariott for this relaxing day at you great pools! And your lunch at the pool bar was high class. At the bandera you will not get spoild, the food comes out of a smelly kitchen and the restaurant and the evening stuff is not motivated to serve you a evening drink at 10 o clock. Whatch out, they charged us the whole bar consumation twice, at the restaurant itself and also on the final bill. The beach is quite dirty as well as the whole hotel area. would never ever go there again.
The room is pretty small. I stay in the room near the pool which is small as well. It is quite noisy from children who swim early morning. Bad choices for relaxing. The reception should assign the room for family near the pool, not a couples who would like to stay at the hotel for relaxing. Nice is nice.
