“Don't Go!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

the worst hotel i've ever been to, it's run by lazy teenagers, that will take 20min for them to come to the table and take your order, bad food, you have to put a mosquito net as soon as the sun goes down because if not, the Geko's will come out and poop on your bed, one night we had a visit from two cockroaches!! its far from the town to get there you have to talk along the beach which is a nice walk you have but then you have to talk in a "jungle" its a 30min walk on a normal pace.
the only good this about the hotel is the view .

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".

Stayed here for 8 days with my boyfriend in sept 2013
It is not worth the money at all, yes there is great views but that's about all the hotel has to offer!
To get the good views you need to pay more money, the rooms are nice but in order to get to your room its a bit of a steep hill and steps.
There is no others restaurants or shops beside you so all the food,drinks and snacks are over priced.
Stay in the centre (not in the middle as this is very noisy) the hotels are lovely with great views and half the price.
Its a good 20 min trek to the town and you have to go through dark isolated parts of the woods, not a very safe feeling at all!
they have long boats for 100tb each one way. They stop going to the town at about 8pm and its even harder to get one back at night, its 150tb each but most of the boats wont bring you back and if they do they drop you only at Viking beach which means you have to walk through the woods and along long beach to get to the hotel.
The staff are very rude and have no interest in the guests. They actually ignore you on occasions and talk amongst themselves instead of helping you.
they had a staff party one night we stayed here and they neglected to tell us this so when we went down for dinner, they had stopped serving food and drink. We had to be told by another guest to just take food from a cold buffet instead, when we asked the staff about this she did not care and decided she did not speak English(hotel manager).
Ruined my trip to phi phi as I really did not enjoy staying here at all!

Yes it has beautiful view from your room,but how about the rest? Seperated from Tongsai means you have to pay extra transportation if you want to eat outside the hotel. BTW,the food here is not tasty at all, and expensive. I would rather live in another hotel or beach,and just a day tour to phiphi if I only have this resort as my option.

If you want relaxing, quiet and beautiful, you will get it here!
The staff are sweet and helpful and full of smiles!
The food was amazing and the cocktails were the best we had on Koh Phi Phi!
Our view was spectacular (Deluxe Villa) and the room was great! Comfy, big bed, tea and coffee and mini bar all inclusive (not much in the mini bar though). Massive balconies and if you want romance, this is the place.
Far enough out of the main town part of Phi Phi so that you can have peace and quiet and enjoy the nicest beach, Long Beach, pretty much to yourself and the other guests. But close enough by tail boat (100 Baht per person) to be there in 5 to 10 minutes. If your up for it though, the walk to town, which is up and down a few rises and a little tricky at times (lit at night and ropes to help in the hardest areas) is about 40 minutes and a nice way to get to see more of the island.
We booked a 6 hour Long Tail tour with the resort around the surrounding islands which was incredible! The snorkelling and swimming is beautiful and you get to see the famous Maya Beach, where they filmed the movie "The Beach."
Do not miss this tour while you are here, its true beauty at its best.
Fantastic resort! If you want to party, stay in town, if you want to relax, Phi Phi the Beach Resort is for you :)

Room Tip: If you want the view, go for the deluxe rooms. The walk up is tough after a few cocktails but worth...

We spend 4 night in Phi Phi the Beach Resort.
The + :
- really spacious bungalows, 100% wood, big balcony/terrasse, nice ocean view
- friendly staff
- delicious breakfast
- The beach !!!
- the proximity of Koh Phi Phi Leh (long tail boat snorkeling trip)

The - :
- as we were there on low season, the dive shop was closed.
- the location on Long Beach implies to take a long tail boat (100bth/pers) each time you want to go to sairee (shopping, diving, etc...)
- the restaurant is a bit expensive. But it's always possible to go to the restaurant at the Paradise Pearl (the other resort on long beach, 10min walk by the beach)

Room Tip: Move for an ocean view bungalow.

This was a great hotel, simple as that. After staying near the main town for three nights it was great to get away from it all. The Ocean View rooms were just amazing, inside and outside the rooms was just great. Only downfall to the rooms was the ants that crawled around outside on the private balcony. Other than that the service was great, the receptionist, restaurant workers and bar workers were all so friendly. The staff were a small community as well, so there was a very friendly vibe around the entire place. Definitely the first hotel I'd book if you're going there.

Room Tip: Ocean View rooms are well worth the price, nothing like waking up to the beautiful view of Phi Phi I...
