“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

Depends what you like? We have stayed in many top class hotels throughout Thailand over a number of years both good (mostly) and (very few) bad. Last year during the floods in Bangkok we were in Ao Nang due to fly up to Bangkok for a couple of days howvever we had to change our plans ( Thai Airways were amazing with rescheduling flights). We had to stay in Ao Nang for a further 3 nights (tragic) but had to find another hotel. We have been to Ao Nang on a number of occasions previously and always looked on web sites at The Cliff and been tempted but never booked. What can I say, this is a real treat. If you like small personnal very well maintained hotel this is the one. From the minute you walk in (please do not be put off by thr drive) you feel so very much looked after. The rooms are basic but clean and have such a nice feel to them. I cannot but praise this hotel and the value for money is amazing and the breakfast at your door by the pool is special. Worth a visit on any budget.

The hotel is not connected to the sea but the hotel is nice design, might be a bit small lobby and room but obviously charming.

We recently stayed in room 102 and at first I had mixed feelings about the resort. It is a small resort and is one of the older ones in town. We felt it shows some wear from the age but adds character to the place. The bed was a little hard and smelt a little funny but not bad enough to complain about it. The power went out a couple times during the rain but the resort has a generator (loud) that kicked in about 10 minutes later. The shower in our room did not put out constant hot water and would go from hot to cold about every 25 seconds. My wife suggest it would be nice to have a small mirror somewhere inside the room as well.

The included breakfast was good but we had to tell the staff the night before what we wanted to eat for breakfast the next day and what time we wanted to eat breakfast. I assume this is because it is a small resort and they would not have enough seating or staff to serve everyone all at once and that wanted to use fresh ingredients without any waste. The pool was amazing and had great views. The pool does not have steps to get into it though so if you do not have any upper body strength it may be a little awkward getting out of the pool :-)

My review may not sound that great but with the minor negatives mentioned I would stay here again. The location was great and the manager was very helpful. The rate was great as well!

We stayed at the Cliff after New Year on Phi Phi, The rooms are great we stayed in the regular bungalow rooms and then spent a few nights in the suite which was amazing. The hotel gardens are very well maintaned and the the whole place is spotless. The lady that manages the resort was great and and ladies that worked the bar and restaurant treated us like VIPs and the food was excellent in comparison to what else was avialble locally. Pool was great and very quiet we would go back tommorow! the coconut smothies are incredible.........

At the Cliffs my boyfriend and I felt like a prince and princess. The staff members were very attentive and I can’t fault the service provided. We stayed there for three nights. I have so much to write about this place, so I will bullet point them:
- Food – I was only able to eat one dinner meal due to food poisoning from another place. They have a great selection of Thai and western food on the menu and very reasonably priced. My boyfriend enjoyed all the meals. Once the staff knew I was sick – they tried to accommodate with rice and toast. The restaurant also has the clean food, good taste sign. Lastly, try Takola in Krabi Town! Amazing Thai and Chinese food (you will also receive a transfer from the hotel).
- Room – Our room was very clean and very cute (we received elephant folded towels on a daily basis). I loved the outdoor bathroom. Please be warned that the room is rather small so if you have lots of luggage, you may need to place it straight into the wardrobe. The only downfall of the room was that there isn’t much light in the bungalow and there isn’t any hot water in the bathroom basin. This fault is only minor though!!
- Service – Nothing short of fabulous!!!
- Pool – The pool looked and felt amazing. It is cleaned on a daily basis. If you stay at this resort, please swim in the pool.

My boyfriend and I really want to return to this resort as it was purely amazing.

From our arrival the hospitality and service was second to none. All the staff went out of their way to ensure our stay was effortless. The reception was seamless and if any additional tours or travel where needed they organised them for us. The resturaunt has a great range of Thai and Western food and the quality is excellent.
The Cliff itself is located up the hill from the hustle and bustle of the beach front so gives to the ability to leave the main a tourist area and slip into the tranquil and surprisingly quiet setting of The Cliff. Overall and excellent resort that provided excellent service, we will go back.

If you are into nature and outdoor bathrooms this place is a must, Im from a hot tropical climate and love outdoor bathrooms, I want to build one at home. Staff are fabulous, nothing a problem and very quick to fix any problems. Manager lady had perfect english and went out of her way to help us even keeping a bag there whilst we went island hopping and we were not booked in on our return. It is not for children, its a very small boutique thai style place. If you have hordes of luggage its not for you, the rooms are not big but they are more than comfortable, clean and with everything you need. Breakfast was fresh and lovely, pool gorgeous, views to the cliffs.I found this place on Trip Advisor from the reviews and I was not disappointed at all, I was impressed. If you are a pommie who cant stand a few bugs and ants then book into a concrete jungle, oh and if you are a very large person yes the toilet area is a bit small !!!!!!!

Room Tip: Room 108 at the end nice and private
