5 out of 5 stars for sure! This place has such a nice vibe! The room smelled amazing - a perfect aroma of essential oils and love. The bed was incredibly comfortable, and the owner and workers here are all incredibly kindhearted people. The location is phenomenal, just steps from the beach and the water. PapaCrab Boutique Guesthouse is extremely environmentally friendly, and they support an environmentally responsible world. The atmosphere is terrific and everything about my stay was truly sensational. If you are in Phuket, I'd highly, highly recommend staying at PapaCrab Boutique Guesthouse!

Very nice place to stay, friendly owners and property cats, koi pond in the entry! Short walk to beach and many good restaurants around. The only downside was if you don't like sleeping with AC on and you have neighbors that smoke.. it's a bit annoying to have to jump up at night or morning to close the door. Fortunately they were only there the first two nights :) Excellent location in this quiet beach town.

Staying at PapaCrab’s guest house was a pleasure. From the artistic display of plants to the tasteful decor in the the bedroom. We learned quickly that Charly and Joong are advocates for human and animal rights as well as the environment. Charly was always ready to inform us and direct us, making our stay an enjoyable experience. Thank you Charly and Joong, until we meet again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay and hope to return soon. Charly catered to our every need providing kettle, umbrella, extra blanket and advice where best to rent a scooter. Restaurants just moments walk away and the beach is less than 10 min walk. I appreciate the quietness of the room given how some hotels in Phuket are spoiled by noisy neighbouring bars - no problem here. Hope to return.

We absolutely loved Papa Crab. It's in the Premier League of guesthouses and is in a quiet location on Kamala's Walking Street. The rooms are stylish and well equipped - my only small gripe was the hardness of the pillows but the bed itself was very comfortable. Charlie, the owner, has to get a special mention. He is so incredibly helpful and accommodating. He is also the proud owner of the some beautiful felines who are often in the lobby area. Kamala Beach is very close by as are numerous restaurants and bars. Totally recommend this lovely little guesthouse if you are planning to stay in Kamala.

Spent 5 nights here in Feb whilst attending a wedding at one of the 'high-end' resorts nearby. Location is excellent if you want to explore the town or need easy access to the beach. There's a 7-11 store next door and a number of good restaurants and coffee shops moments away. Clean rooms with aircon. But as others have said, what makes PapaCrab stand-out from other options is the host, Charly. Recommended.
