I don't agree with the poor reviews written on here, and I am glad I didn't let them put me off. My boyfriend and I stayed here very recently and extended our stay as we were very happy with Arboreal. Having booked for just 2 nights, we stayed for 5 in the end and my brother and his girlfriend checked in here for 1 night as their hotel, Sunset Bay, was so bad.
The staff are really lovely and friendly, made us feel very welcome indeed and they try very hard to make your stay pleasant.
The rooms are pretty good, yes there are a few negatives but our bed was really big and comfy, the room was clean, the shower was nice and hot, the fridge and air con worked. You aren't staying in European-standard 5 star luxury here, but you are silly to expect that if you are travelling around Thailand.
Yes there are steps up to the resort but so what!! If you can't handle it then you must be pretty unfit. Besides, it means you are further from the sounds of the full moon parties on the beach. There are lovely views from the main reception/dining area to enjoy. The food they serve is very good too.
The Phi Phi Viewpoint (20 baht entry) is directly above the hotel and it's well worth the effort to climb up there to take in the view.
I would definitely stay here again, don't be put off by the bad reviews. The worst thing about Phi Phi is the huge amount of boozed-up Club 18-30 types that have taken over the place, a real shame.
