Awesome guesthouse with a very friendly and helpful owner couple. Most comfortable beds we had in asia, perfect air conditioner and super clean rooms. Feels like home with a beautiful beach next to you.

PapaCrab is the best choice to stay when arriving on Phuket. Charly is very nice, friendly and helpful. The location is the best to go to the beach, to the shopping... everything is near! Definitely would recommend!!

Charly, the owner, was so welcoming and helpful with any questions we had and was on hand in the reception area or lives on site so was always nearby. He organised our taxi transfers and offered advice on the local area, he is... More

Third time in a row I stayed at this place. Again, Charly and his wife were very helpfull and kind. I love this place since it feels like home and still so far away. Close to beach and all other nice things one needs on a holiday. Thank you PapaCrab!

This is the place to go if you like being treated as though your business matters. The owner/operators do most of the work, and it is important to them that returning to your room after a day trip is an uplifting experience. They seem to take personal pride in being sensitive to the customer's needs and preferences. The location is... More

PapaCrab is a comfortable guesthouse located just 100m from Kamala Beach. Restaurants, bars and other amenities are only an easy walk away yet PapaCrab is both quiet a quiet and relaxing place. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are well-appointed. Charly, the hotelier, was both friendly and helpful. PapaCrab represents excellent value for money, especially during the low season....

We booked Papacrab for a cheaper hotel style room, and it fit the bill (off season price). The room was great with a comfortable bed, air conditioning, fridge, and convenience store next door. The road of the hotel is quite touristy, if you want cheap food, we found a market on the main road (near Big C) which was cheap... More

Recently stayed at PapaCrab for 6 nights - 3 friends each in our own king room. I usually go 'resort style' but thoroughly enjoyed the personal PapaCrab experience. Wonderful hosts Charly and Koong. Great location on the main beach strip of Kamala with everything essential at your doorstep for a laid back getaway. Excellent value for money. Planning on making... More
