Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The beach is supreme, hands down. White sand, clean water, and jungle backdrop. This is the only reason this review isn't rated at lowest grade. The bungalow beds were constantly not clean. Instead of top sheets, there were thick blankets that can't be properly washed but shared between all guests. The staff skipped cleaning twice despite daily cleaning according to the booking. The restaurant staff were so stressed they literally run between tables, serving food at wrong tables, and repeatedly missed to cook someone's food at all. The staff couldn't speak English when there were problems to discuss. Very different attitude compared to all other Thailand hotels across the country, and we have extensive travel experience. Taxi drivers don't want to drive there because of the steep 1,5 km hill down to the hotel. Expect to pay 500 THB for taxis to accept the mission, or pay the hotel 200 THB to take you up the hill by car.

Do not bring a car the step narrow mountain side access is very dangerous if you stop your vehicle going up, you will not be able to start again and will roll back. If you meet a car whilst coming up, you need to pray it is not on one of the narrow sections and that they give way to you. Much better beach villas with views of the islands further down. Not view here except the sea

We are here for a short vacation trip but luckily that the resort is empty as people are heading to BKK prior to my stay, the location is really great I got a beachfront room :) so can only lay down in front of the room all day.

Koh Chang has so many better options. Don't bother with this place. The biggest issue is that you CANNOT stay here without a car. The road to the hotel is one kilometer straight down on like a 60 degree angle. You pretty much need a 4x4 to tackle it. The local taxis (songtheaw) refuse to drive it. We were forced to rent a car for our stay mostly because we spent the first day and night frustrated and angry, unable to get in and out of our hotel. At low tide, you can walk 1.5 kilometers along the hot, sandy beach to the town around the peninsula. But at high tide, you are trapped, no way to get around with waist-deep ocean and strong waves blocking your path to the hotel. The hotel have a car and every single time you want to come or go from the hotel, you have to call them and explain. They make you wait 15+ minutes ... and sometimes they don't answer their phone. We called them 20+ times one night before they answered. It was 9:30pm. So ... we rented a car at an additional cost of 1600 baht just so that we could access our own overpriced hotel. That is also perilous as the road to the hotel is kind of death-defying. We saw one group of Thai locals lose traction and roll backwards down the hill, crashing into the rocks at the bottom. The rooms are super average. Just okay. The hot water heater did not work at all. They don't change your towels each day unless you call them from your mobile and have strained conversations in broken English with them. The place is in perpetual shadow of the jungle mountains so everything is very wet and damp. The paths are rotten raised wood which your foot will go through randomly. It is in disrepair. The worst part though was the breakfast. We went the first day then never returned. It was simply the worst food I have ever seen. All of it freezing cold. Just a single plate plonked down in front of you, no preferences allowed, I asked if I could have my eggs well done, they shrugged and gave me the same cold, sloppy eggs as everyone else. 2 cold, inedible hotdogs that I tried to give to an actual dog, but even he refused to eat them, they are not meat. One slice of fluorescent pink artificial luncheon "meat" of some kind. 2 slices of white bread. Thats it. It was vile. It was not food. The staff tried. They tried to do their best. They were all pleasant enough.... but this place is just a mess. They are clearly super understaffed after they got rid of everyone during Covid. The beach area was covered in trash, both natural debris and plastic. They could have swept it once a day. The beach is nice. Some of the most isolated and pleasant. Much nicer than the beach at the south end of White Sand Beach. It was quiet at night. No thumping bass of bar music, I could not hear other guests. That was a good point. The beds were comfy. It is for these points alone that the hotel gets 2 stars instead of 1. I have been to Koh Chang now 4 times... every other place I have stayed is a better choice than White Sands Beach Resort.

Very satisfied with bungalow location, nice cold AC and soft bed. However the water pressure from shower head is too weak and not enough air ventilation in the bathroom so the damp smell is there all the time.

In 5 nights on Koh chang we have changed of room 3 times. The first one, a water leak in the bedroom, the second time, the aieconditioner didn't work and the bathroom was horrible. The third room was the most ok, even if the main door locker xas broken, the lamp in the bathroom was broken too. Everithing in this resort has a problem.. Rusted nail on the floor (be carefull with naked feets), poor breakfeast, and we have to pay 100 bahts to climb the 600m cliff to join the main road. The reception lady was lasy and not friendly at all. However the beach was good, the only thing that is not depending of this hôtel.

Close to beach. Nice area. The staff spoke limited English. It was a comfortable stay but could be cleans. Good for couples. Beautiful beaches and nice weather. Would go again. Staff need to work on communication for better customer reviews.

This place probably had some charm a few years ago. No it's deteriorating. Rooms are dirty and terribly worn. Food not good, staff rather unfriendly. The only upside is quiet location. I would say that this place is ok if you get a double room for under 25$.

Despite the relatively high price, this is a very basic resort with basic accommodations. We had to upgrade when we arrived as our initial bungalow was super tiny and very musty. Our upgrade was slightly better but there were dead bugs and gecko poop all over the floor. At least there was a broom in this hut so we could sweep up ourselves. The wooden walkway connecting the huts was old with loose boards and nails protruding. The garden surroundings could be beautiful but they are minimally maintained. For the price, we expected more. On our first morning, the breakfast food was running out long before breakfast was scheduled to end. It is a quiet beach so if rustic bungalows appeal to you, you might enjoy it. We moved after 3 nights.

The island has plenty of clean, low cost bungalows— look toward the south end. We booked 6 nights but only stayed one. Didn’t want to share the room with ants and other critters (you can see the sand thru the floor boards). When we checked out, the owner (I’ll call him Mr. Miagi) disappeared so his poor staff had to say he went to town. He was really doing donuts on his scooter around the property so we couldn’t ask for a refund. True story. Our mistake was not researching the true reviews on trip advisor. He had a good rating for “value” translated into : is there any reason to stay here? My answer is NO.
