Me and my family stayed recently at Mama beach and overall we had a really nice stay. It's situated in the corner of tonsai bay a quite area perfect for sitting at the beach bar or on the beach on a night time away from the noise. On this note can I add the bar staff were fantastic- so funny!
Our room was a grand sea view upgrade which was nice- our daughter is 14 so they put an extra single bed in the room for us. We had a leak in our bathroom but the staff sorted it swiftly so not an issue. The front desk were so helpful deffinately an asset to the hotel! However, I also have to add a note about the arrogant moody young guys who seemed to be part of the ownership of the hotel. Not only did they have faces like slapped arses, I witnessed them twice be really rude to the staff at the hotel which I really didn't like. The staff, like most Thai's, work ridiculously hard, long hours for absolute peanuts. They are also some of the most polite and friendliest people I have ever met.
The breakfast is nice: basic, but nice. The mini bar charges similar prices to the local minimart's which is really good, we've never seen this before travelling!
Phi phi is a beautiful island however, it is larger than I originally expected and has different sides to suit all types of holidays. If you want an 18-30's type of stay then head for the loh dalum beach area. If you like to checkout the trip advisor food etc and prefer more activities, tonsai bay area is a good option. However, for sheer paradise you need to stay at long beach. We went for the day (walked- soooo hot but great fun) and took a long tail boat back. 100bht each and well worth the trip. Absolutley beautiful!
Take a walk up to the view point. Again Absolutly scorching but well worth the view at the top. Watch out for the monkey's...they're deffinately up to something!
Like I said overall a good stay. I just wish the owners could create the same atmosphere that their hardworking and dedicated staff do!
