Everything you need is within 2 minutes walk.   Not for anyone looking for an island escape but if you just want a no frills, comfortable place to base yourself and like your shopping and nightlife then it’ll do you nicely.  The southern end of the beach isn’t the best, so you’ll find a better stretch of sand a few minutes walk north. 

Room at Alina Grande hotel, Koh Chang

It’s a good deal, especially for families, as the Deluxe Quadruple Rooms which have two double beds (sleeping 4 people) for around 2,500 Baht / night are very competitively priced. There’s even a swimming pool and garden area tucked away at the rear of the hotel where you can relax and sunbathe in peace.

There are some issues with noise form nearby bars, but kudos to the management for informing guests about this when they make a booking.  Alina Grande Hotel isn’t an ideal place if you enjoy the sounds of silence.  But if you plan on being out on the town or don’t mind a bit of bass late night, then it’s good value.   

However, if you are a light sleeper then go for the rooms on the north side of the building are recommended.  That’s the quiet side of the building.

Pool and garden, Alina Grande Hotel, Koh Chang

Superb 😀 - Everything was great, clean, safe and the swimming pool and the little restaurant beside the pool is a fantastic idea with great prices I enjoyed.that very much, great staff and the little boss " Dun Hom " was very good at working. 😞 - There was nothing we did not enjoy here. KO
I would recomend everybody as budget friendly option at White Sand. 😀 - Perfect location for good price. Staff was super friendly and we spoke even to owner at evening pool. Breakfast include selected meal + toasts with butter and jam + little bananas + watter/juice/caffe/tea. Pork on basil is recomended. Hotel bar at pool has same prices as 7/11 and good drinks with enough alcohol. We enjoyed our time there. 😞 - Little more bugs then expected as well as little outdated equipment/facilities, but nothing too bad for offered price. Little friendly gecko helped us with insects.
An old hotel,but clean and comfortable,well worth the price for a room also staff very nice 😀 - Staff very friendly 😞 - Pool and location
Exceptional hotel and staff 😀 - The location and staff are the most welcoming of people out of any hotel i have stayed love this hotel the staff cant do enough for you and very peaceful and quiet pool area to relax in 😞 - Nothing everything was exceptional wont find a better hotel for the money in white sand beach
Disapointed 😀 - Nothing but a great and helpful staff 😞 - well the first room i got had old analog TV, so i asked to change rooms, got a room on third floor, with a small digital TV, so far so good, then i when to bathroom, and the toilet seat were not attached, the waterflosset in the sink were loose so when i tried to turn on the water the whole thing turned and the water ended behind the sink on the floor. The terrasse door could not lock as both the top and bottom lock were pulled out and not replaced, and the desk had better days 10 years or longer ago. it were all cracked up and you could easily hurt yourself. I do though feel bad, cause talked to the really sweet old woman that owns the hotel, and they are down on money after covid, and upgrade one thing in one room after money gets in.... so sad to write this, cause of cause they need a chance, but people should just know what they sign up for, and its not the earlier reviews nor the nice photos shown ! P.S real bad Wi-Fi, close to none excising on 3 floor
Superb 😀 - 7 times. Easy go local 😞 - None

  • We were put in the Alina on the beach first of all which was extremely old and run down. Shower and handbasin did not work and the bed was dirty. The following morning we moved across the road to the main hotel which was excellent. Would definitely recommend as a value-for-money hotel.

  • Nice hotel. Very clean, basic and good value for money. Casual and easy going. Would stay here again.
