We rented 2 rooms during peak time in April. The rooms were excellent, aircon was really cool, comfy big beds and cable TV. Clean room with nice warm showers. A nice swimming pool for a quick dip between the beach and exploring the island. The staff were really helpful and friendly. Only had breakfast there which was nice enough. Only...

he resort itself is your own private resort. You can do as you please. We brought in food and drinks from outside and lounged at the pool with our own speakers playing the music we like. The resort itself is relaxing and the ambiance is very peaceful. The location is a good 10 minute walk to white beach, restaurants and...

Tonglen Beach Resort has installed a new roof on the buildings which looks really great. Inside the rooms, John has renovated the closets, toilets and sinks to a more updated fashion. They have also put water heaters in the rooms so it's convenient to make hot water for your coffee any time you like. The hot and cold water plumbing...

Tonglen Resort is the ideal place to get away from all the hype and hullabaloo of White Sand Beach, even if it is only a five-minute walk away. It has a lush tropical garden and a good-sized pool, even if the water was not so refreshingly cool (hot season). The rooms and adjoining balconies are spacious, perfect for taking breakfast...

We got the hotel fairly cheap and it's pleasant. The rooms are more than adequate (and pretty big) and all come with a balcony. The place is clean and the staff are helpful. It's not a luxury resort but if you want a base close to the beach then this is great. Based on value for money it's worth 4...

On our first night, they gave us a mediocre room with a not so nice view which was a pile of garbage and construction materials. Next day, they immediately transferred us to a nicer room with the view of the pool and garden. The staff were friendly and accommodating.

I and my family (we are 5) checked in at Tonglen on April 7. No doubt, staff are very accommodating. However, the hotel amenities are lacking or not consistent in each room. We were ushered into the 2nd floor but were surprised the room is not made up yet. The AC is off and the extra bed we requested online...

I chose this hotel, because its near the hotel where my convention will be held. Budget-wise, for a family of 5 adults and 2 kids, this hotel/resort offered cheaper price. The room was big.
