I stayed in Pier 42 and really enjoyed it. The hotel is beautiful, so are the rooms, and the staff did all they could to make me feel at home. Perfect getaway to relax - I loved the pool area and spend hours hanging out on a bean bag. Everything is nicely renovated and super clean. As all rooms (as far as I could figure it out) face the courtyard, it was also good for a quiet night of sleep.
Lovely restaurant, too. Breakfast was lovely, particularly the eggs benedict, although a little more choices would be good - nevertheless, the guests were even asked if they had any particular wishes for breakfast. Thumbs up for that!
However, one must be aware that Chalong itself has no beach, it's nothing but a pier, from where the dive boats leave, and a couple of bars and restaurants. More expats than tourists. Fine to get out for a couple of days, or for people who just come for diving. The main beaches are a bit off - you can reach them more or less easy with a motorbike - however, if you're not up for a bike ride, it can get difficult, as cabs are quite a rip-off.
Oh, and before I forget - the SPA42 was the best Spa experience ever in Thailand. And I've been in Thailand several times. They use only natural products and really pamper you wonderfully. Highly recommended.
