We booked this hotel at the last minute as our trip to another island fell through due to weather / seasonal factors. I'm glad we did. It's a great little place - cute little self-contained bungalows, great (and very welcome) pool, breakfast was included in the price, and the staff were great. It's placed in a great area of the island - there's some bars nearby, some shops, short walk to the beach, and some very cheap restaurants. I have no hesitation in recommending this place to anyone visiting Koh Chang.

We stayed for ten nights at Garden resort in a poolside villa. We really liked it here. It's a small resort were everyone says hi to each other and were the staff really cares about you.
The pool area is clean and nice with new sun beds. Always a bed waiting for you and you never need to put out your towel early to get one.
Breakfast offers all you need and wi-fi works fine.

Downside, not beachfront, but It's only a 5-minute walk away.

We recommend this place! And high-five to the staff who works here.

Spent 4 nights here recently. Great little place owned by Mause and run by Lyse. It's located right in the centre of Kai Bae giving good access to shops (7-11 and Tesco Lotus), great local restaurants (green curry 80 bahts) and bars (try the buckets at Filou directly opposite), and amazing massage parlours (300 baht for Thai & 400 baht for oil massage).

Rooms are spotless, all staff very pleasant and courteous, and there's a reasonable selection of breakfast goodies.

This place is a great, value for money offering (roughly £50 per room per night). I would have absolutely no qualms returning here :)

Spot on!

We stayed for 8 nights at this resort and in all honesty we couldn't have made a better choice. After a six hour journey from Bangkok it was nice to be greeted on our arrival by the smiling Lisa who quickly checked us in and showed us around our poolside bungalow, straight away we felt at home.

The bungalows are adequately furnished with a big comfortable bed and the pool area is a great place to just relax and chill out. The bar area is also very enticing and Mause the owner has a great collection of music videos which you can choose and enjoy watching whilst enjoying a cold beer.

There are some great staff work at this place, the cleaners and lads who tended the gardens always seemed very pleasant and all in all we couldn't have made a better choice, just outside the premises are great beaches and plenty of nice eating places with comfortable little bars, so the location is excellent.

Room Tip: The poolside bungalows are very nice.

We stayed for five days in Garden Resort and loved it. The bungalows are spacious and comfortable and are located in a beautiful garden with great pool. Breakfast is nice. Beach within walking distance. Mause and Lies and the rest of the staff are wonderful and helped us with booking a nice snorkeling trip and elephant ride.

Very nice,the owners and staff were very pleasant and very helpful. The rooms are very quiet. Swimming pool is spectacular. Very close to the beach and if you are a walker you can make it Klong plu falls on foot, we took a taxi back but with the visit.
The breakfast was pretty good and included with the room. Lots of shopping and lots of restaurant to choose from. Lots of taxi to take you where you want to go.

If you are a family and have decided to go to Ko Chang, this is definitely an option for you. A nice, well-kept hotel close to 7/11 convenience store, bars and restaurants. Keep in mind that the hotel is not on the beach. It is a short walk away from the Kae Bai Beach. You will need to get the local taxi to all the other beaches. And do visit them! At least the Lonely Beach and the White Sand Beach.

The rooms are big and they are kept clean. The shower is with enough pressure. Nice towel art on the beds. There is a TV with satellite channels (could not find anything) and a DVD player.

The hotel pool is very nice. Unfortunately the family vacationers (it was high season) always occupied all the chairs, so no chance to stay by the poolside.

Room for improvement: in our bathroom there was a terrible smell of sewage (I think that was what it was). The wi-fi did not work in our room, which was a real shame (it was the furthest from the reception). Breakfast needs some cheering up, it was a bit "tired" in my opinion.

All in all, this hotel is good for family vacations. However, If you are a young bunch, go to the Lonely Beach. I thought that it would be too hippie for my taste, but I was wrong. And they do have some decent bungalows there as well.

Room Tip: Do not get the furthest bungalow, no wi-fi there!
