This small resort is well out of the way of the bustle of Ton Sai and so should be a really lovely and peaceful budget place to stay on Phi Phi. Only reachable via boat or walking over the steep track that crosses the island from Ton Sai, the resort has a range of bungalows of varying prices, some right over the beach, and a restaurant run by a friendly welcoming family. There's nothing else there so we thought it'd be ideal for a relaxing end to our holiday.
The resort has a little sandy beach to itself and the snorkelling was really amazing there! The downside is that it's not as quiet as you expect due to the constant traffic of boats going past to and from other resorts. But I imagine this is the case anywhere on Phi Phi. Also, apparently Ko Phi Phi has run out of water so every day we were there a big (noisy) boat docked in the bay for hours and delivered water to the resort.
We had a beachfront bungalow with a lovely view and air con, TV, fridge and hot shower, but note that electricity is only available for these between 6pm and 7am. There are mosquito nets in the rooms too, as well as a balcony with a hammock. The bathroom is a semi-outside one.
There are daily trips to the smaller islands like Phi Phi Ley. You can also get a lift (for 100 baht) in the resort boat to and from Ton Sai if you get bored. When you first arrive on the ferry they pick you up for free in the boat (although we had to wait two hours as they were waiting for other ferries to arrive so they could fill the boat up). The resort seems to use its boat for everything - so if you go on a trip you end up dropping people off at Ton Sai and then picking people up on the way back! It was quite a nice way to meet different people though, and the restaurant at night had a nice, sociable atmosphere.
If you're looking for a cheapish place on Phi Phi to relax and rest this could be for you. if you like your home comforts and holiday luxuries then probably not.
