We stayed here for 7 nights (we were originally booked for 5 but stayed longer due to political unrest in Bangkok. We stayed here with our 2 teenaged children. travelling with teenagers is a trial which I will not bother to go into but our kids had a room that was lower down the hill and we had the deluxe suites high on the hill- it felt safe. Our room had views which were simply breathtaking. The rooms looked exactly as on the website. The kids rooms ('superior villa') were a little 'tired' but had excellent views from the balcony. I followed previous TA advice and splashed out on the Grand Deluxe villa with sea view room for my husband and myself which was good advice- very hard on the thigh muscles but SO worth the effort when you get there! This resort is not 5 star but so close to it- a little way away from the busyness of Tonsai village which frankly - in my mind- is a relief unless you are a 20 something party animal! You can apparently walk to the village in about 40 mins but due to illness unfortunately I never got to it- we always took the boat which cost about 100 baht each person each time.
My advice is - take insect repellent as mosquitoes can get into the room.
Ladies- do not bother taking any strappy high heeled shoes to Phi Phi as you will feel overdressed. Do snorkel outside the boundaries out the front of the resort- which is allowed- the snorkelling there is really great! Do go and visit Maya- the Beach- it is worth it! Read up on the history of Phi Phi as it is interesting. Visiting the very small Tsunami memorial at Tonsai village was moving. Do try the Thai massages at the resort which (like all Thai massages) are very different but oh so good. Staff at this resort may struggle with English but overall were very helpful. Would happily stay there again.
