I have heard so many mixed reports about this resort so I thought I would ask Tripadvisors. Is it any good? Room quality OK? Breakfast OK? Is the hilly nature of the resort a problem? Mainly I was concerned about how long it takes to walk to the Phi Phi Hotel area where all the restaurants are. Some say 10 mins but I get the feeling its much further. If we dont want to walk, are there Thai who have long tails at the resort who can take us down and bring us back and at what cost. While we would like to stop closer in near the "action", our travel agent says the brochures dont list smaller hotels closer in. Another were looking at was the Phi Phi Villa Resort which is nearby ... or is there any real benefit compared to Bay View? Any comments would be appreciated.
