When people tell me they are staying at Koh Chang Resort, my only question is “Why?” as the bottom line is that there really is no excuse to stay here, other than it is relatively cheap, when there are plenty of better options on the island.
The bungalows have vines and tall plants growing over them as if to hide their appearance and the beach side pool is the same size as a large jacuzzi bath. Although there is a larger one by the bungalows on the inland side of the main road. It’s as though the resort was frozen in time for 30 years and no maintenance or upkeep has been done so far this century.
One major redeeming feature though is the location. Koh Chang Resort is on a lovely stretch of beach. But other than that, unless you see a special super cheap deal on the rooms then look elsewhere as paying over 4,000 Baht for a rickety old beachfront bungalow in High Season is not a wise choice.
The staff try their best but there’s no hiding from the fact that this is one of the worst reviewed resorts on the island. However, some people do actually enjoy its rustic simplicity.
Bad 😀 - Nothing 😞 - In need of modernisation. Rooms old and smelly Totally different to what they look like in picture . Garden is full of old ornaments about 40 years old . I would imagine this was probably one of the first hotels decade's ago and it has had anything done to it for 50 years. Grossly over priced . Should be 600 baht per night. Booking .com liars on the star rating too Old smelly rooms are near road too so you get no sleep .
As I expected. I'm quite traveled so I'm use to small issues that always arise when travelling. 😀 - Typical thai breakfast but no cereal 🥣. Most of the food was warm and not hot unless you got there for 7am. Juice was very watery. Staff had lost the will to live except for one really nice lady. 😞 - See above
Exceptional 😀 - Everything was amazing.
Superb 😀 - Location on the shore of the bay. 😞 - The bar can't make mojito.
Superb 😀 - Good view and clean place 😞 - Little bit small room but still good
Poor 😀 - This Resort is big, good sea side, but rooms are old, a lot of dust every where... Durty... Swimming pool been dirty, anyway we had to used it...
