      Ok but not the best I had in Ko Chang”

      Chose this for my first day in Ko Chang since they had a swimming pool. After 2 days they appeared sold out and I moved to another place that I liked much more, had equal quality rooms, was much cheaper, had a stunning ocean view (White elephant is at the hillside) but lacked the pool (that I did not use anyway). Maybe my bad luck, but my luxury hut had ants that annoyed me at night. If you don't mind the view, prefer a pool, this is one of the best values in Ko Chang White sand beach with pool and a spacious set up.

      Decent rooms but terrible restaurant”

      The stay was pretty disappointing. The pool was dirty and a bit broken and The aircon in the room very noisy. They told us that people staying in the resort would get 10% off in the White elephant resort, they gave us only 3% discount. The food was terrible, burnt and mostly uneatable. It was very overpriced for the food quality! I recommend going to the place next door called "Paddys", Excellent food quality, perfectly cooked, friendly staff and great service. Also cheaper than The white elephant restaurant.

      Great stay at a great place”

      We really enjoyed staying here, only 12 rooms, with about 20-30 chairs and sun loungers, meaning you always had your own space in the sun. Another bonus was the availability of food from the poolside bar which had a very extensive menu Excellent cleanliness, rooms cleaned and towels changed every day, always towels available on the sun lounger Extremely friendly and helpful staff Only slight negative was the wifi was a bit hit and miss , didn't bother me, but for my sons it was the end of the world at times!! Would love to come again Thanks so much

      My bungalow named Cassandra was near drain pipes that were very smelly, difficult to stay outside on the bungalow terrasse, no siphon under the washbasin in the bathroom, there no cup to close the washbasin so smell inside as well..Hotel a bit far of White Sand beach, especially with kids, however hotel staff is nice, big & comfortable bed in the bungalow and Koh Chang is just superb !! my review would be much better without the smell issue..

      We stayed two nights, the staff is kind and helpful. The place is clean and quiet. Rooms are bit smaller and during our two day stay the Wi-Fi did not work. The reception guy told me there was system error but I checked Wi-Fi was working every where except this place so it must be a fault somewhere in the resort!

      There is no receptionist or any sign to let you know where to check in”

      Once we arrived around 6pm it was dark already and the sign on the pool bar is written “Reception” but there is no receptionist we wait about 30mins so i decided to call but the number that i called it rang the phone at the pool bar in front of me ( no one is gonna pick it up for sure) because there is no receptionist. Ok, i think i should do something then i chat with someone name’s Frank but he was useless, couldn’t tell anything useful because he said that we need to check in at the bar outside and there is a sign says that we need to check in at the bar outside(i took a picture and the sign doesn’t say things like that) but we just asked some guest in the resort before his answer, if i wait for his answer, i would’ve been checked in around 8pm for sure. Only this part makes me disappointed. For the other things they are really good. Worth for money. Cleanliness was fine, we found cockroach in the room but it was acceptable for us at kind of these resorts. I hope i will get some nice explanation back to me about what happened.

      Terrible internet”

      The private huts are lovely. The wifi didn't work in the room. Usually that's not a big deal but when you can't even check an email and it's raining out it can be very frustrating. Ask for hut 7. The wifi is located there.

      Good enough if beach is not a priority.”

      The hotel is clean, but when we checked in we noticed underneath the bed had not been cleaned in a while. Location is far from the beach. Contrary to what hotel listing says, the actual closest public beach access is about 800 meters from hotel downhill. The 150 meter access described by them is through a hotel's private property's seawall. In high tide which lasts until 1300, the absolute closet beach access is about 700 meters, and that's even a stretch. Also the hotel is located cliff side such as many other hotels on the island. If location is important to you, i recommend you use google satellite view to make sure it's what you want. Be advised, one of bungalows which contains the superior king room is badly located in the corner of the beach bar litterally next to where the maids store towels and supplies. The other bungalows are nice and clean. and small pool is clean. Had the room and location descriptions have been more clear, we would have booked somewhere else.

      Good Location on the Hill...”

      Great bungalow accommodation in a good area a bit out from the main street. The bungalows are not new but have been renovated and are kept very clean. Good pool and bar area well spread out. Close to restaurants and great local eating spots and supermarkets.

      not worth it”

      Better places to stay on the island. we only booked this place because of its location, even then the location and the hotel is very touristy and full of old white men with Thai girls. The rooms are small and weirdly decorated. The water in the bathroom smells like sewage, couldn't even brush our teeth with it.

      You get what you pay for.”

      We didn't pay much, so we didn't expect much either. You get what you pay for. Half the lights in the room where out, very moldy bathroom and too many bugs in the room. We know that the huts are right next to the jungle, but the construction was so cheap, that bugs could get in anywhere. The front door couldn't even open all the way. The staff was nice though, the pool was nice. But it was only open from 8AM to 6PM, which is the hour you are out exploring the island. When you get back, everything will be closed. Cheap comfortable room. That's what you pay for, don't expect any more.
