First off, the hotel is not in Krabi Town, but is on Koh Ngai island (pronounced Koh Hai).
When I booked this hotel, my fear was that it would be a climb to get to the room. There was a climb, but it wasn't that bad. However, it was a bit more difficult getting to the pool which is at the top of the hill. Because of the position on the hillside, the rooms have really great views and the pool has a fantastic view.
The room we had was very basic. Their wasn't a separate shower in the bathroom, it was basically right next to the toilette. The water was heated with a gas on-demand heater. The guests have to light the pilot each time they use it. To be honest, I prefer the gas powered on-demand heater to the electrical ones as I'm never sure if they properly ground them.
The air conditioner was slow to cool the room, but was able to bring the temperature way down to the point my wife and I were too cold and had to adjust the temperature during the night.
Near the lobby, the have fairly expensive internet access, however, they provide free wifi in public areas. Unfortunately, my wife and I didn't know until the last day.
The massage provided in the hotel's spa was fantastic. One of the best massages my wife and I have gotten in Thailand was from the sisters working in the spa.
The downside to this hotel is its location. Koh Ngai is basically one long beach with about eight resorts on it and the Koh Ngai Cliff Beach Resort is at the far end. It takes a long time to walk to another resort to try other restaurants and bars. Also, during high tide the sea water comes right up to the wall. This means you have to either walk through the water or down a very rough unmarked path to get between resorts. This would be impossible at night.
One last problem with this resort is that the beach isn't very sandy. It is shallow and filled with rocks/dead coral.
