Emerald Cove is a fabulous five star hotel in a great location with all the bells and whistles you can expect. The staff has been well trained and are always happy and helpful. Beautiful grounds, an amazing 50m pool and a wonderful breakfast buffet complete the picture.
We chose this hotel beacuase of it's name - as we also have an Emerald Cove in South Africa, and we were very happy with our choice.

I stayed at the Amari for 4 nights at the end of October based on previous tripadvisor reviews and its location on the beach. It was a treat as I would normally stay in more basic 3 star room. The service and food (room service) was excellent. Breakfast was expensive so the room which I booked did not inclue breakfast and ordered room service instead - this being the cheaper option. The pricing for room service and the poolside bar was reasonable, drinks during happy hour (buy 1 get 1 free) was popular. During my stay, there were a lot of jellyfish in the ocean but they were not dangeous (but stung). I was not sure at the time so it limited the number of times I went into the ocean. I was told the jellyfish would clear in the a couple of weeks. Apart from the jellyfish, the only other thing which I would want to change is other guests smoking on the sunloungers. I know that its a public area and has more to do with people being considerate but when the wind is blowing smoke into your face in a beautiful setting, it's really unpleasant. The 50m pool was great - warm and great for swimming laps. I had dinner each night on the beach at a local restaurant next to the Dewa (bring a torch). On the road, there isn't too much around but this did not matter as I was only there for 4 days. The staff at the amari were very friendly. The room was large and clean. I also had a massage which was very good. I had a lovely stay and would recommend anyone wanting to 'splash out' at nice resort.

There wasn't one single staff person who wasn't super nice. The whole place is adorned with beautiful dark hardwood flooring. In our room, we never heard any sounds from neighbors. The restaurant is delicious, although expensive, but we only ate our free meal there. They have a nice pool, and offer poolside massages. I also got one of those for free as it was offseason and they were trying to drum up business. It was awesome! The beach is swimable, but the water is actually uncomfortably warm. The room was large and unbelievably inexpensive. Koh Chang itself is awesome, so laid back and a lot of little things to do.

this hotel is perfect for those travellers looking for quiet/perfect beach/excellant accomodation which to us is what Thailand is all about.
we stayed three nights before we headed off to Koh Kood and wished we had stayed longer, the pool and the beach were perfect for us and if we wanted a busier resort it was just a short taxi ride away.

Room Tip: pool facing rooms are the best with a side sea view

My wife and I stayed at Amari Emerald Cove for 9 nights in a Deluxe Room. Our room was large, spacious, clean and had a lovely view over the pool towards the ocean.
The resort grounds are beautiful and all the staff very friendly and do everything they possibly can to help you.
The resort has a huge Olympic size swimming pool and its own small private beach which is always present thanks to a wall that protects it even when the tide is in. There were a lot of jelly fish in the ocean close to the shore when we stayed there. I ventured out through them a couple of times and didn't get stung so I'm not sure how dangerous they are - There was a warning flag on the beach.
Kayaks are available to rent for 100 Baht by the pool and there are numerous Koh Chang activities that can be booked at reception. The prices of tours and activities seem pretty standard wherever you book them on the island so you may as well do it through the resort. If you need laundry done and want to save a bit of money, the tour shop at the top of the street that leads to the resort (two minute walk) will do it for 40 Baht/kg (80 if you want it ironed).
The breakfast buffet each morning was quite adequate. The food and drinks at the resort were reasonably priced (particularly during happy hour), however as is usually the case, food and drinks are cheaper if you dine off site. If you walk along the beach to the right past the neighboring resort you'll find a couple of lovely beach restaurants and bars which are well worth a visit. There are also a number of shops within easy walking distance. A taxi from Amari to White Sands which is the major shopping and tourist strip will set you back about 100-120 Baht for two people each way.
It is very difficult to find anything bad to say about Amari Emerald Cove. If I had to make any criticisms it would be that the WiFi signal in the room was fairly week and occasionally disappeared completely. Also the gym was quite small and if there are more than a couple of people in there seemed over crowded. Having said this, these things really won't a big deal and I wouldn't hesitate to stay at Amari again and would recommend it to others.

Room Tip: If a view is important for you go for the Deluxe rooms on the third floor (as high as you can go). I...

The Amari hotel on Koh Chang was our family (2 sons 7 & 10 years old) a perfect hotel. The atmosphere is cosy, the hotel is not too small and not too big, straight on the beach, great service and a surprisingly fantastic restaurant. Beautiful swimming pool and scenery with great sunsets. We bought a package for 5 nights including breakfast for 4, 1 set meal and 2 hours of massage. Thanks to the package the price-quality relation was quite good when compared to alternatives on the Island (and in other parts of Thailand). Fully recommended!

Room Tip: Take care you get a room with sea view. At the back side of the hotel there are rooms 'without...

Our family went there during October break. Though it was a long drive from Bangkok and quite a wait at the ferry pier, it is worth going. The resort atmosphere is nice but not great. We stayed in a corner room which is specious. Breakfast is ok but not so many varities. Family pool is too small. But the big pool is impressive. Nice beach but watch out for jelly fish which can appear seasonally. We bought 4 days 3 nights package. Price is reasonable.
