Initially we planed to go to Mama beach resort which IMO is the best 3 star hotel on the island but as there we no rooms available we book the neighbor hotel Popular Beach Resort. The resort is a small business run by a local family. We stayed in room no.9 in one of the bungalows next to the reception.... More

This place is Heaven and that can't be said for many places on Phi Phi, we had the room nearest the reception no6, it was massive with a large comfy bed and a large bathroom, five steps from the room is your own virtually private beach with free sunbeds, as this is the last place before the cliffs there are...

When I first inquired they told me 3000 baht a night, then after deliberation we booked (with a different receptionist) and he told me 3500... which is frustrating that everyone tries to take advantage. However, the place is literally on the waters edge (and the at the end of the beach). This side of Phi Phi has no night scene,... More

We stayed at room number 9 which has a larger shower than the other rooms and it was a very nice experience . The rooms are right on the beach ( the better beach near the ferry) and located next to a cliff. Amazing view, new aircon, hot shower and very comfortable bed! Location was great for us but could...

Stayed here for 5 nights in Aug 13. First the location, a 5 minute walk from the dock. It is the last resort so no people are 'passing through', quiet, away from the noise at night, right under some stunning cliffs. Perfect. The water in front of the accommodation does have a fair few boats moored but it doesn't ruin... More

The positives: the resort is situated right on the beach in a quiet location and is within walking distance to some great beach bars, restaurants and the marketplace. The staff are reasonably friendly. The negatives: firstly, the beach bungalow I stayed in was directly above reception (could hear all the noise from below including a toddler that kept crying and...

Location right at the end of tonsay bay, many boats in front. Rooms have good view and look nice. We had some troubles with the monkeys, they love to hang around the bungalows and one attacked my wife... But the rest was fine, very friendly service. Breakfast: you have to try the french toast!

This place is far enough away from the tourist mess (it's actually the furthest west hotel on Tonsai and bumps up against the side of a steep karst/mountain) that you can't hear the noise from Woody's or Slinky's and there are only a few bungalows so you can sleep. The rooms are large and the bathrooms were decent. The modest... More

The location of this hotel might have been good some years ago. Today Tonsai Bay is nothing but one big harbour. Boats all over, and the beach and water was dirty and uninviting. We had the cheapest room in the hotel, and it was very tired and worn. The bedlinen was probably clean but with stains that seemed to be... More
