My partner and I booked this hotel only a day before arriving and were quite disappointed. All hotels on phi phi are more expensive than thai hotels in general however we were expecting more from a hotel wit swimming pool. Everyone on the island commented that this hotel was a newer posher one however I felt it was distinctly average... More

Location is good, since it's not too close to the beach and bars. Rooms in bungalows are really basic, with twin beds (mosquito nets) and bathroom with stone floor. Only cold shower! As usual, in bungalows with fan, the smell is a bit moldy and the rooms are damp. Good place to stay for someone who's not looking for high... More

This place was extremely overpriced for what you got. If you like sleeping in a sauna then the rooms will be good for you. The rooms are absolutely boiling and you are given a tiny little fan that does next to nothing to compensate. It was 33+ outside everyday and you come back to a room even hotter than outside...

Thank you for taking the time to review our bungalows, we really appreciate your comments and are glad to hear that you enjoyed the atmosphere at the pool area and swim up bar. It sounds like you found the fan rooms to be too hot, I think you would have preferred an air-con room, we have different types of rooms... More

My husband and i had a great time together with our daughter. Swimming pool was fun and our bungalow was also nice with the hammock. The place is cooler because there are lots of trees surrounding the place. The cook was awesome,tasty food! Pls bring morquito repellant though ;-) Recommended place! Staff were friendly too!

Tropical Garden Bungalows is further away from the central mass of Koh Phi Phi activity, and all the better for it! It's an easy walk, but it's set back along the hill and therefore much quieter. If you get a way back bungalow, be prepared for some steps. But then it's even quieter! The bungalows are sort of rustic, but... More

Definitely one of the best places we've stayed in during our month around Thailand!! DEFINITELY GO FOR A FAN BUNGALOW!!! We initially booked an air con room and was fairly grim, asked to move to a fan bungalow (also cheaper) and the staff were very happy and quick to help!! (Because the fan bungalows are high up they're also very... More

An agency in bangkok called TIT (never go there its a scam) booked for us. We paid a package the double price of the normal price and we didn't choose the hostel. We had a small room and not really nice who was smelling bad. There is just cold shower. You can find better in koh phi phi

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we really appreciate your opinions, though after a great deal of research we are unable to understand which agency may have sent you to Phi Phi.

Pros: • cheap for a room, bed and fan • swim-up bar • cheap, delicious restaurant • a bit isolated from the main drag - you won't be kept awake by the thumping music from the clubs • only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach, parties and other food • Bali hut style - the atmosphere is chilled out,...

I absulutely loved it! we came from noisy Bangkok and still wanted to party, but we opted for some piece and quiet since holiday is also about chilling and recharging your battery. Tropical garden is very close to where the action is, but far enough if you don't want to be part of the action. The bungalow was simple and... More
