“Not worth the money”
Reviewed June 26, 2008

After walking the streets looking for a cheaper hotel we ended up staying here too tired to walk anywhere else. We stayed in the cheapest room which was €50 after bargaining down and it was still well over priced it was plain but big with an ok bathroom. The more expensive rooms were way nicer and were villas beside the pool. There was building work going on around our room! The pool was lovely and you could walk from the pool onto the beach which was great. There was also a poolside bar which was nice and a good happy hour!!
You needed to get a taxi or motorbike into the main part of town. Which has great nightlife too!!
My camera got robbed from our room one day when i forgot to put it in the safe so watch out for that!!
The reception staff were really rude too and charged us a lot for using the internet services!!
You could find somewhere else for better value!!

  • Liked — the pool and that you could walk onto the beach from the pool!!!
  • Disliked — The service and distance from town
  • Stayed September 2007, traveled as a couple

Chaweng Cove is a place to miss!

We stayed in a "deluxe" bungalow, which was nice on the outside, thatched roof, chairs. But open the door, after a bit of a struggle, and there is no foot mat to wipe the sand off your feet (the room is 5m from the beach). The room is incredibly warm as the air-con didn't work properly. The tile floor barely compensated this. The wardrobe was missing 3 of 4 doors. The paint on the roof was peeling. The bathroom should be condemed! No hot water tap in the basin! The shower was a drizzle and the water ran lukewarm and cold through the course of the shower. Only half the breakfasts were somewhat appealing. Some of the staff were very pleasant and polite, however, some were downright rude. Pool towels were only available 0900-1700, so don't try and swim after a day's touring. Thank goodness we spent most of our time away from the place! Didn't take any photos, wasn't worth it. STAY AWAY!!!
