“Nice pool, great location (white sand beach)”
Reviewed 11 May 2013 via mobile

We were sleaping in the part on the jungle side close to the pool. The rooms were big and clean. If you want the rooms cleaned, you can tell the staff at the reception. Towels are available at the pool. The pool is big and has plenty of chairs. At the pool, there is a massage place (very good) and a bar (cheap). The beach is only 20 meters away, certainly when the tide is high.

Alina is a well known modern resort in the White Sands Beach area and has a rather large size swimming pool. The resort consists of two sides which are divided by the busy main road. The Bungalow side is on the beach side and I personaly feel had the good fortune of getting Bungalow number 2 which is only steps from the beach. The bungalow itself, though small, has modern furnishings including a comfortable bed, a small desk and a first class dresser. The split air conditioner worked well during my stay as did Cable TV. However WIFI was VERY SLOW, borderline unreliable and was NOT free (bought a 2-hour day card for Baht80; $2.67 approx.). Other than this unfortunate drawback and the smallness of the bungalow, I was very satisfied with my stay, especially given that the attendant on duty of the bungalow side was most helpful to me in so many ways. Heartfelt thanks to him.

Room Tip: Rooms in the Hotel side seem much larger but cost more.

Stayed here for 2 nights. On the jungle side. Very clean hotel. Nice pool. Friendly staff. Short walk to beautiful beach! Reasonably priced and very helpful to answer any questions you have.
Scooter rental on site. Same price everywhere. Short walk back from the bars close to tattoo shops and the restaurants are all along the main road. We had a room up stairs very large. Out friends had a smaller room on main floor

We read mixed reviews about this hotel.

We were picked up at the ferry port on time. We checked in within 5 minutes. The air con room was large and the bed comfy. The pool was great, a really nice temperature.

The hotel is clean and quiet. For the price its a steal. all the staff we re very friendly. It's placed right in the centre of white sands beach. White sands is very walkable from ohne end to the other.

Room Tip: All the rooms i saw looked the same. i had one facing the nightclub, but unles you sat on the large...

I booked this hotel via Booking.com, the online pictures seemed OK. However, it never said that the hotel is in 2 separate locations across the road from each other. The main part of the hotel is fairly nice, modern, clean, has a decent dining/breakfast room and pool. However, the other part of the hotel across the road is very dated and run down. The room I had was quite small, grubby and smelly, the bathroom was revolting. The 2 guys on reception spent most of their time asleep on the couch in reception, my room would not have been cleaned and towels not changed unless I made the effort to ask.
Although it is on the southern end of Whiite Sand Beach, there isn't actually a beach there when the tide comes in, the tide comes in all the way to the retaining wall/flood defence. This isn't a majot problem as it's only a 5 minute walk to a nice sandy ppart of the beach, and the beach itself is very good. The location for shops, restaurants and convenience stores is OK, but then again, every hotel in White Sand Beach is coneniently located along the main strip.
1300 THB a night ( with no breakfast) for this room is too expensive. I wouldn't stay again

Room Tip: Book another hotel, there are lots too choose from in Koh Chang

The Alina on Koh Chang Island is a family run Hotel.The staff and owners are very obliging and couldn't do more for you if they tried.Koh Chang is a peaceful place and wonderful to relax.It is what Thailand is all about and not the bustle and grab of the main cities.The fish food on the island is wonderful and fresh and I would recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Make sure you have a quiet room

This large room was excellent value at 1500 baht a night. Light spacious and airy a very big family room with 2 double beds, chairs and balcony with my desired sea view. Very large bathroom with 2 showers and bath - only complaint was very old TV. Location is excellent in the middle of White Sand resort everything a short walk away in the most modern resort on Koh Chang Island. There is a mini supermarket next to reception that sells all the essentials including hot coffee and an internet shop that worked fine. There is a 24 hour Tesco Lotus supermarket just a few minutes’ walk away that sells everything you may need. There is a music bar behind the hotel - the excellent live music finished at midnight. We found reception polite and helpful but these island resorts employ a lot of non-Thai staff so a bit of patience is required as they will often struggle to understand Thai or English. If you want your room cleaned you have to let reception know when you hand your key in otherwise your room will not be cleaned. We had a fantastic stay, loved the room and location!

Room Tip: Select a room opposite side to the Music Bar.
