Absolutely great place. Charly couldn't be nicer. The bed is huge, new sheets everyday and quiet but at the same time on a main street in Kamala -- bar right across the street, plenty of shopping and restaurants down the street. Chairs outside your room to smoke, or take in the sunset, and two minutes to Kamala beach. Can't ask... More

We stayed here for 3 nights.It is a guesthouse ,but feels more like a second home at the moment you walk in.The place is super clean and maintaint.In the center of town very close to the beach and very quiet at night.The owners are great host as well.If you look for a small boutique hotel,you cant go wrong.

We stayed for two nights at PapaCrab during a very fleeting visit to Phuket. The guesthouse is perfectly located close to Kamala beach and the local restaurants and bars. The room had everything we needed, and was spotlessly clean, although the bathroom drains were a little smelly in the mornings. Charly was a friendly and helpful host and arranged for... More

We spent 4 nights at Papacrab around Christmas 2013. The place was exactly as described in many good reviews. Beautifully decorated entrance, confortable clean room, and very charming owner, Charly & Koong. They are very family friendly and really taking care of their guests! Kamala beach was also nice and beautiful. It was quite calm at night which was ideal... More

Last november we spent two weeks in Phuket Island. As it was our first vacation in this region, accurate information was essential, in particular in our search for an accommodation. We were not looking for a trendy 5*-hotelsuite with seaview, and swimmingpools under palmtrees, but for a clean room with all usual facilities. Finally we choosed for Papacrab Guesthouse at... More

Initially booked at another guest house up the road. But, when we saw Papa Crab we decided to move. The beach at Kamala is in itself amazing but in our experience the no frills, clean, contemporary, well designed and friendly atmosphere at Papa Crab's was the perfect antidote to the hawkers and "blah" that so many beach towns seem to...

We stayed with Charly at Papacrab for 7 nights at the end of November. What a superb room so stylish and the whole guesthouse was very impressive. The room was kept clean daily with fresh bedding and towels. The air con and room fan were quiet, lovely lemongrass fragrance soap in the shower. Fresh orchids in the room was a... More

We have just returned from Kamala after spending 6 days in this hotel, it is a very nice looking guesthouse, management are friendly and polite. The problems i had with this place were the bathroom is far too small & it has a huge sink in it thus creating a bottle neck if there are more than 2 of you... More

Dear txnkitten , I am very sorry to hear of your recent unpleasant experience. Surprisingly almost all guests speak in high terms about our high-quality mattresses and our beds are made up with sheets during the high season (outside temperatures above 30°C) but blankets are always available on demand. I apologies that your air conditioning system wasn’t functional during one... More
