I booked this on Agoda not knowing much about Ko Chang or its beaches or accommodations.
We paid about $45US/night and that was too much. This place has bungalows on the beach, but we were in the 'hotel' building on the second floor. Our room/balcony overlooked the tops of the 'garden' bungalows. No view to speak of.
The place wasn't horrible, but for the money, it wasn't worth it. Maybe if we would have paid $15-20US/night I wouldn't have given a poor review.
The shower was not very generous with hot water or water pressure. And they gave you two small, wimpy 'bath' towels.
The room did have A/C (not great) and a fridge. But it did not have a safe. When we asked the hotel staff about it, they said we could store our valuables in their safe at the front desk.
The front desk people were not very friendly, nor were the restaurant staff. Breakfast did come with the room, but it wasn't very good. We didn't try the restaurant for any other meal so we can't judge on the other food.
The beach was okay. A woman rented beach chairs for 40B each. There were a few vendors selling hammocks and trinkets. Except for one woman selling fried bananas, no other food vendors came by.
We checked out other beach areas on the island and other places to stay. With many other options, I would not stay here again. If you choose to stay here, at least check out the bungalows on the beach. Don't stay in the 'hotel' block of rooms. Not worth it.
