My friends and I had been backpacking across few places in Thailand and we knew PHI PHI would be that one place where we would go all out and stay at a very nice hotel/resort. After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor we picked Phi Phi The Beach Resort and stayed there for one night. The regret = staying for only one night.
The resort was amazing... but I'd have to say the beach and the view were truly amazing therefore the whole experience automatically become Ahhmazing. The beach facing the hotel was pretty much empty, only frequented by the guests of the resort. Perfect. The food and drinks were a little pricey but wonderful. The bar just next to the resort has cheaper drinks and a fire show from 9PM at night. The swimming pool is very small but you really don't need it when there is clear blue beach right next to you.
The rooms are spread out across the steep 'hill' and we called the minicar everytime we needed to get from our room to the reception/food area. Even though our rooms were high up, we had nothing to complain about as the view from it was absolutely stunning. The rooms were also very spacious, well air-conditioned and clean.
The bar nearest to the beach also offers full day/half day boat trips to Maya Bay and other surrounding islands... snorkelling as well. The resort is tucked away from the "busier parts"... we knew about this so we had no complaints about that... we also didn't bother trying to get into the pier area for the "nightlife/scene".
