Me and my family had an amazing stay at Sofitel Krabi. From check-in to check-out everything was outstanding. Made my 40th birthday very memorable one. My daughter just love kids club so much that she just wanted to stay there forever. They had so many activities planned up and very well organized. We just loved Club Mileseme lounge with special thanks to all the staff there as they are just too good with their service and hospitality. They had everything attention to detail. We tried all restaurants and food was awesome everywhere. Overall we had an amazing, relaxing stay and got memories to be cherished forever. It is not just place but staff makes it amazing and Sofitel excel in that. Thanks again Sofitel. Read less

Location: *** faraway, has a complimentary transportation to Ao nang Pool and garden: ***** lovely Service:** poor Rooms: **** not at their best anymore Security: ***** thank you! Breakfast and food quality:***** Cleaning: *** All inclusive:*** Spa: **** Beach: not great for swimming, we liked it anyways Overall: The pool was amazing. That’s the best part. Beautiful garden, mostly. Kids club, nice. Then let’s go to the not so great experiences. The cleaners forget everyday something: towels, cottonpads, coffee etc. You have to call and ask for something which should be in your room, everyday. It’s ok for few days, but comes annoying issue for longer stays. No easy holiday here. Restaurants are the biggest problem. The waitors neglect and forget your orders, even if you are the first person to come to the dinner. At the pool you get a warm drinks, if they don’t forget you - I have to say that manager did some great effort for this during our stay? Hopefully they will solve this issue soon. When your order arrives, it’s the appetizers, the main dishes, the desserts and bread all together, at the same time to your table. Loved the breakfast buffet. Spa experince is calming and serene. Some massagers are better than others. All inclusive is not buffet and doesn’t include room service, icecream bar and it’s closed between 10.30 AM to 12 (our kids ate at 7-8 and lunch time came an issue). It also means a la carte, maybe not best with the young kids waiting for food long time. Read less

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days in Nov 2019. 2 adults and 2 kids. We had a wonderfull time. Ives stayd at many 5 star hotels and can sat that the service at this hotel was the best I have ever seen. The kids enjoyed the big pool and kids club. Breakfast was also the best I've experienced. The negatives were the bland food at the italian restaurant. Some cocktails also didnt taste like the were supposed to. The drinks at the bars were very expensive compared to other hotels and bars. So we mostly bought drinks during happy hour when the prices were in line with other resorts. I suspect this was the reason why the bars were always empty. So the resort had no vibe around the pool and in the bars. Luckily you have many restaurants and bars just 5-10min walk down the road whick are all on the beach. Our time here was very special. Thank you. Read less
