We spent 3 nights at this place where our Thai trip begon. Friendly english speaking, clean rooms, shuttle service to ferry are the strong points. Reggae bars behind with freedom atmosphere and climbing spot makes Tonsai very attractive to all kind of people.

Pros: Great beach; great place for rock climbers; clean room and surrounded by nature. Cons: Travel there an nightmare, however staff made good efforts to soften the blow. Make sure a boat takes you to the resort, timing is everything and based on tides. Make sure to be wearing the right clothes and shoes to hike to the resort if...

We took a late flight from Bangkok to Krabi, and we had the hotel organise the airport pickup and boat to Tonsai. A little more expensive than trying to do it yourself (1700THB), but not that much more, especially for such a late arrival time. The hotel was tranquility at its best, water was fantastic to swim in and you...

The location of this place is unreal. Its perfect, quiter than ao nang, beautiful sunsets, cheaper than railay yet still able to hike there within 10 mins, and accomo and renting kayaks is way cheaper. This place was gorgeous and well maintained only downside was the service in the resturant was terrible.

This is a standard hotel, very clean and with a great service. Right next to the beach, it has a perfect location. Easy to reach from Krabi airport (shuttle bus which drop you in a place where you take a longtail boat)

It's hard to rate this place... The furniture was quite new and the place was clean, but the room itself and the bathroom were small and had no closet whatsoever, not even space under the bed. So clothes and climbing gear were roaming around everywhere. The AC had two settings: Off or icy. Water temperature was very good though. Breakfast...

The surroundings are quite nice, but when the sea is at low tide it is necessary to walk 50-80m through the dead reef. Plenty of tourists come not for the sea but for hiking the vertical rocks. Please consider what you expect and what you want....

Greeted at the airport by a very friendly taxi driver who insisted we left all our suitcases to him! After a 15 minute transfer we were welcomed by very attentative hotel staff. Due to us arriving very early our room wasn't ready but the hotel provided us with an air conditioned room with shower and bathroom facilities. We wondered down...

It was a great place - good accommodation food was good, but more expensive than in the town. Western food was particularly costly. Breakfast was a great meal. The views are breath-taking and the climbing is magnificent. Ensure that you go deepwater soloing.
