Wonderful staff and manager, always smiling. A very nice hotel to stay! Great breakfast and great cocktails :) The pool is one of the best i've seen. And the Diving School inside the hotel is a big advantage. Great team too.

A nice hotel with an amazing pool and beach area! Staff were very friendly, the breakfast buffet and restaurants were excellent, and the rooms were large and well decorated. The Amari website refers to it's Koh Chang location as a "5 star luxurious resort", but I think that is a bit of an exaggeration. The Amari Emerald Cove is a nice hotel with some great amenities, but is beginning to show some wear and tear (cracks in the walls, pot lights hanging from the ceiling in our room, etc) that I would not expect to see at a 5 star hotel. We arrived without a reservation as our trip to Koh Chang was a last minute decision and ended up waiting for over an hour for a room (waited a few more hours for the sheets to be changed). It wasn't a big deal as we just wanted to put on our bathing suits and head for the beach, but not what I expected from a 5 star resort. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the Amari Emerald Cove and would definitely consider an Amari hotel again in the future!

What a wonderful stay. The resort, the staff, the managers all together just fantastic. Every interaction felt like the staff really wanted to personally ensure you received what you needed. The pool is the best I have used and the rooms and resort all spotless

Great breakfast, service, and nice staff. Terrible in room wifi. Mold in showers. Antiquated small TV. Basically an aging, overpriced luxury hotel . Took over an hour to check in because they couldn't reset the room key card.

A great fan of Amari hotels, but this one was disappointing. Hotel 1/4 full and room which we left at 9.00am hadnt been serviced by 3.00pm. Rooms were tired, the floors needed revanishing, and there was a problem with ants. Beds were hard and our twin room comprised of two single beds. On the positive side the food was good and the understanding of english by staff was excellent.

We have just had 6 nights at this hotel, its one of those places that just grows on you.
1st of all when you walk into the room its a bit dated and in need of an upgrade. But as you spend more time here its not the room thats important so much as the location. its on a fantastic beach with just the best views during the day and into the evening. The bay has many small local fishing boats that come and go and this makes for a great ambience.
The hotel has a large selection for breakfast and as we went during the low season we had no issues at all getting a table etc. In fact i am an early riser and get up well before my family so i was there at 6am each day and the staff warmly greeted me with my cappachino and i just enjoyed my coffee over looking the bay using the free wifi to update my emails etc.
we mainly ate in the restaurant by the pool and we were very well looked after by Stefan the head chief who came out to check our meals were ok and to check on our son who has a food allergy. Stefan is very aware of some of these issues and is more than happy to prepare a meal off the menu to help out anyone in this position. its very hard at times to find suitable food for our son but thanks to stefan we had no issues here. On the beach front to the side of the hotel there are some great local restaurants where the table and chairs are set up right on he beach, the food is good and the locals are very welcoming.
As a note to my comment regarding the room the hotel manager has just e-mailed me to say that now the wet season has finished they are now in the process of painting and tidying up the rooms inc the fitment of flat screen tvs
All in all a nice place to stay,fantastic local on koh Chang and we would go back again

Professionally run, we'll managed, great staff and beautiful location.

The best beach in Koh Chang it seems endless.

I can't praise this hotel highly enough; stayed in two hotels this was superb.

I hope to come back during early November as a special surprise treat for my wife, I do hope that I can get another nice room.

Well done to the manager and staff.

Stay here!!
