My husband and I are in our late 20s and early 30s and wanted to experience koh phi phi but not in the drunken teenage way, so we looked at all other locations on Koh Phi Phi besides the main town, Ton Sai. We chose long beach because of the gorgeous beach, quiet nights, opportunity for excellent snorkeling right off the beach, and close proximity to Ton Sai (the crazy loud clubby port city koh phi phi is notorious for) so that we could easily get to our hotel after taking the ferry in and in case we wanted to do any of the activities only available in Ton Sai. We stayed here 3 nights and after visiting Bangkok and railay beach, koh phi phi was the highlight of our trip.
The location of this hotel is on Long Beach, a 30 min walk or 100 baht per person boat ride away from the port town of Ton Sai. You cannot hear the bump of clubs from here and there are no clubs on long beach. Just a handful (maybe 5) hotels with hotel restaurants. The beach looks out on koh phi phi le and an excellent snorkel spot with sharks, clown fish, anenomes, and starfish is an easy 200m swim from the beach. This hotel is the cheapest of all the hotels on long beach (big plus) without sacrificing quality. While other more expensive hotels like The Beach are wonderful, at this hotel bungalows farthest from the beach are literally three rows back. At places like The Beach you have to walk up the hill to get back to your bungalow. Bungalows were large, air con nice and cold and not too loud, had fridge and safe deposit box. Beds are large (king) hard but comfortable. Showers large and clean with free shampoo and body soap only.
The breakfast at this hotel is included and is excellent: juices, granola, fried eggs, Thai curry, pancakes, fresh fruit, coffee and tea. Tables are all beach front with sand for the floor, amazing! Also included is one hour of Internet wireless a day but they don't tell you, you have to ask. There are 2 dive shops on long beach but we dove with the aquanauts in Ton Sai. We walked daily there and back and it took 30 min each way, not bad. This hotel has no beach chairs, all others do. Bungalows that are beachfront mostly are looking at the ocean through a tangle of trees and people getting massages (awkward) so not worth the splurge at this place. The hotel staff were friendly and are helpful in planning lots of tours, prices seem good. Our best dinner in long beach was at the phi phi hill resort, excellent and cheap with the best sunset view, though quite a climb. We were glad we stayed on the beach and not up there.
Beachfront not worth it. The furthest you are from the ocean is 3 rows back, choose the cheapest roo...
