We booked this as for a couple of nights just as a place to get our bearings on the island. The reception was closed when we got there at 8 and a note was left for a number to call so it was lucky that our driver stayed and called for us! After a long bus ride from Phnom Penh... More

Penny's management would first of all like to thank James O for bringing this unfortunate case to our attention. We apologise because it should certainly not have happened like this. Sorry! It seems several bad things coincided and it really all went wrong here: Firstly, specially in this very low season, it can happen that our reception closes a bit... More

Been two times at Penny`s. Great value for the money. Clean rooms and surroundings, English speaking staff, very helpful in every way. Good location, but you need some sort of transportation, rent a scooter.

Dear Teijo Thank you for your review. Of course, it is still very helpful to have an own vehicle on Koh Chang. Scooters we rent out from 200 Baht onwards. If persons have not experience with scooters we do not recommend as well to rent one(we rent our scooters not out in this case) because Teijo is right, the steep... More

While on the ferry over to the island I decided to use the agoda app to look for accommodation options. It showed me a standard bungalow available at this resort for two nights (starting that night) for 500 baht. Instead of booking and paying on the app I decided to pay direct at the resort. However on arrival was told... More

Penny's is sorry about this misunderstanding. We have a different walk in rate because there is breakfast included. But anyway, it was our fault not to lock out the last standard bungalow from the Agoda system, this was also the reason that we couldn't offer a standard for this person. But usually if he book right in the resort with... More

Booked in for 4 nights but only 2. Location is a problem! U can rent a bike or walk 500 mts for a bus. Getting back is a problem at night. Not many taxis around. Food choice and quality was average. Not a place for a solo traveller in my opinion staff needed to smile more. English is basic at... More

Penny's find that many of our guests value the quietness and natural beauty of our location with the mountains on one side and the seashore on the other. But yes, there is some truth in what you say. We don't specifically aim to attract young single guests who are seeking nightlife and lots of other activities going on nearby all... More

Penny's Bungalow Resort is outside the main White Sands Area, 5-10 mins taxi ride away. It offers a quiet tranquil setting away from all the hustle and bustle. It is a family run resort. The staff are friendly and very helpful. A lovely pool and a stony descent into the sea. A bit rough for swimming.

Great rooms, pool and grounds. The breakfast is included and is great. The restaurant is fantastic. I rent a scooter from them as well so have no transportation issues but it is too far to walk to White Sands but cabs are cheep. The scooter really makes it perfect. My only complaint is the mattresses are really hard. But I... More

Basic but clean room with all of the amenities you want at a low budget family resort. Decent food, also good prices. Great view and tucked away from main road. One of island's best restaurants a 5 minute walk away (Saffron's). We chose this place because we didn't want a big resort and were looking for a spacious family room... More

Stayed at the resort for 7 nights. Our standard room was placed very near the beach. The view from the terrasse was just stunning. We really enjoyd the place - and the reasonable room rates. There is a modern supermarked in walking distance from the hotel and fridge at the room.
