It's no doubt that Phi Phi Island is beautiful, with the torquoise beaches, powder-fine sands, it is also no doubt that Phi Phi is flooded with tourists and tourist-touts. The hotel is away from Tonsai pier. Unlike the other hotels, it does not provide a free pick-up long tail boat from the pier to the hotel. All tourists will have to find their own way to the resort. The jungle trail is tough to navigate with luggage and most of us will have to find our own long tail to the resort. With all the haggling with the touts, the first impression is really no good.
All the rooms are beach front villas, cabanas or bungalows. Internet connection and WIFI are only available in the office area and a fairly complex set of log-in details and password will be required.
The rooms are simple and in my view too simple for the price. The aircon is rather loud, light sleepers please beware. The bathroom is simple with a shower, water pressure is not great. The hotel does not have a restaurant but the surrounding hotels have 2-3 restaurants where guests can stock up and load up.
I personally find the price on the high side given the quality we are in, I guess all goes to being in Phi Phi which is now increasingly over-rated.
