What we say: 3.5 stars

Occupying a thin stretch of land that fronts a secluded cove where the peninsula first begins to stretch southwards, the bungalows at this long-running backpacker favourite enjoy one of the best locations on all of Ko Chang. They're set at the top of a forested hill where a constant sea breeze rattles the leaves on towering trees. The bungalows themselves, however, are little more than run-down sheds with lots of open cracks in the faded wood walls, old firm mattresses with mosquito nets, moveable fans and a couple of plastic chairs on porches that enjoy impressive sunset views. Shared cold water bathroom facilities are located at the bottom of a long concrete stairway -- don't forget your torch. Get up early (or stay up late) and head to the backside of the bungalows to watch the sunrise. Cliff Cottage also has a string of rather bland but comfortable air-con rooms with ensuite hot water bathrooms and fridges in a motel-style building. These are similar to what's offered at neighbouring Cliff View Resort. With a few hammocks and a tiny swimming pool overlooking the cove, the restaurant/bar is a great place to kick back and we found the staff to be very sweet and helpful.
