Stayed 2 nights mid November. Arrived at the 7/11 next to the KC hotel with suitcases and gave Rock Sand a call asking if they could pick us up in their boat. We probably should have given them some notice but within 5 minutes they had arrived to pick us up from the beach outside the KC. Great start and... More

The location was unique, maybe a little bit too much, the main problem is the access about 1 km walking through beach. Forget suitcases or arrange a boat transport. As an isolated place you can expext problems with basic things, like very limited water in shower and for activities you have to always walk long way. Anyway, the rooms are... More

"The location was unique" is the start of the review and it ends with "the place is ok" (understatement). The uniqueness: the location, the access and the charm. It is a 500 meter walk over the beach, and yes, when it is a (very) high tide and storm we are hard to get to, call us and we will help.... More

Access to this hotel is by the beach only, which sounds great unless the tide is in and you have to wade through the water! The rooms were terrible a double bed was two singles pushed together, There was no hot... More

I am sorry you lost your key in the middle of the night, after your night out, and went to find an other hotel. In the morning you confronted us with your complaints and your moving. Nearly all our customers want to stay longer. More

There 3 non air-con room have a better view of the beach and sea. Excellent for chilling out in the evening or watching sunset. However the restaurant menu was slightly expensive. We got beers from 7-11 and a long walk on the beach back to our room. Note: Have a hand lamp with you, it's get dark on when you... More

We hadn't booked accommodation when we arrived in Koh Chang, unsure of what would suit for two adults and two young kids. Walking along White Sand Beach we viewed a couple of places but Rock Sand stood out, for its location and for its friendly staff, and for the fabulous rooms overlooking the beach. We took two fan rooms, with... More

A little bit off the main beach, so it is quiet and peaceful, but not too far from the main beach, so it is easy to find a different place for dinner every night (or very good is also just to stay at Rock Sand and eat on the beautiful terrasse).

We came to the Rock Sand Resort towards the end of our holiday when we had been travelling for a few weeks through Cambodia.
