“Good location but in need of renovation...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2010

We booked this hotel on the ferry to Ko Phi Phi as the brochure was very appealing and we were worried about finding a room. However, it did not live up to the agent’s promises or our expectations.

The hotel is located behind the Andaman Legacy Reception area, so initially we were very pleased with our choice as we thought it was part of that complex. However, after checking in we were led into the actual resort to our bungalow which was very run down, with torn furnishings and broken furniture – there was no electricity as the fuse had blown and the air conditioning unit was hanging off the wall, the hot shower we had been promised turned out to be lukewarm and the beds were uncomfortable. Over our 3 night stay, the electricity tripped out 3 times and we had problems with the door key.

On the positive side, the staff were very helpful and quickly responded to our problems and we liked the location as it is in the quiet area of the island, away from the noisy bars with lots of nice sea view restaurants nearby and water taxis to the more remote beaches.

If possible, I would recommend doing a bit of research and booking your hotel in Ko Phi Phi far in advance, we tried to do this a few days before we arrived but all the nicer hotels with good reviews were booked up.

We booked this hotel for 2 nights at the tourist office after arriving by ferry. The pictures of this hotel on show at the office made it look far nicer than it was in reality. After talking to other travellers, we found that this seemed to be a common problem with many hotels in the islands.

First impressions weren't too bad as the reception area was ok. Then we were shown to our bungalow! The furniture was very old, of poor quality and dropping to bits. The bathroom was awful, the tiling was old and stained, the shower had no power and wasn't very warm. The front door was split and didn't fit it's frame very well. I checked out a couple of other bungalows, and they were of the same poor standard.

On the positive side, the bedding and towels were clean and the breakfast was ok (but not great). The air conditioning worked ok, so that was a bonus. We could only face 1 night, and so asked for a refund for the 2nd night, but were refused. We left anyway.

The cost of a room during the easter holidays was 2500 baht. There are far better places on Phi Phi for the same cost. Give this one a miss.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2010

The bungalow was spacious and clean.
Bed was comfort, shower was above local standard and we could actually enjoy it (it used solar instead of the usual small annoying electrical heating device)
The bungalow had a nice balcony, and very good air conditioning.
Overall Good value for money (2000 bhat per night including an ok breakfast)
The hotel is in the opposite side of the beach and has no swimming pool.
We liked the fact that it was a quieter hotel still within a walking distance from the center of the main village (Tonsai village).
Staff was helpful and understood us well.
