My wife and I stayed for 10 days with a couple of good friends at the beginning of February (sorry for such a delay in submitting this review). Unfortunately we had paid in advance and came across no-one having any management responsibility, otherwise we would have left after one night. The hotel was "quaint" but completely run down. Although we had the top of the range Pikul rooms, these were dark and dingey with dodgy front doors and hopeless on-suites. The hotel is situated at the "wrong end" of White Sands Beach where the tide comes right up to the wall of the hotel leaving the sand very wet at all times. Although we were assured that beach beds were availableat the hotel they could only provide plastic chairs from the restaurant. The restaurant itself appeared quite popular early evening but was always empty and closed before 10 pm. We never used it (despite continuous requests from the over attentive main waiter) because the breakfast service was not very good,
We didn't like White Sands - much too commercialised with very few restaurants that we found serving good quality food (and we tried quite a few). We did do a tour of the island but although other places appeared better than White Sands we were still not impressed and would not visit Koh Chang, especially the Banthai again

This is a brilliant traditional style Thai Hotel & is really beautiful!! The staff are absolutely incredible - all of them even the security guard!! We went during the Monsoon season ( stupidly) & it hardly seemed to stop raining but the staff made us forget all about the weather!! The rooms are fantastic with elephant head showers - in fact if you love effalumps then this is the place for you!! Covered with them - its fantastic!! You just jump off the restaurant on to the beach! The food is amazing & the service fantastic!! So far this is the best hotel I ever stayed in!

They were absolutely amaxing with my little boy, Anthony, the chef even gave him squid for bait so he could fish & the waiters helped with his Gameboy mania!!

Tops for everything - cleanliness, friendliness, food, service - everything - no internet though & only Thai TV - but who cares!!

Stayed: July 2006
