We had previously been to Phi Phi in 2011 and were mobbed as we got off the pier as to the different hostels hotels and resorts to stay. We presumed it would still be the same this time round. It really isn't.
The hotspot of Phi Phi attracts huge daily flocks of tourists. This means the hotels no longer need you, you need them. Virtually everywhere was booked, and no one was willing to cut a deal, like on our previous visit.
We stayed at a very run down, all be it "cheap" guesthouse on our first night (not Adaman) - £36 for one night! The room didn't even have a sink. We trekked around the easily walkable island and found his wonder of a hotel tucked away.
Admittedly the Andaman is a bit of a walk to the bustling beaches and attractions, yet you can easily walk it in 15mins or so - good bit of exercise.
For 1,750 baht we got a fan room with breakfast. Nice clean room, simple with tv and fridge - it had everything we needed.
The breakfast wasn't our favourite - lots of Asian food (noodles and currys). Far too early in the morning for us to be eating that!
Hotel has a nice pool, and quiet beaches footsteps away.
As backpackers, this was a treasure as hostels cost more than this, and were no where near as nice. If we were holiday makers, I'm not sure the hotel has the luxury you may be looking for.
Would stay again if we were backpacking, although would look for something nicer if we were holiday makers (your not gonna get 5 star white sandy beach luxury at low prices on phi phi anymore).
