beach quality at phi phi island resort

Just read a review that said the sea and beach at the Phi Phi Island village was 'mucky' can anyone advise please. I thought it was white sand, blue sea and all that. I've already booked for April, help!

I was only at this resort for an hour or so.

The sand on the beach iteself was OK, so only tproblem is the sea at low tide was crappy.

No one told you that the pool is awesome and the resort itself has a nice look and feel. You make the best of what you get. If you have already booked do not dwell on the negative stuff here.

Bored with that pool - no way.

The boat trip to get there is nice too, lots of beautiful sights along the way

We walked there from the north tip of the island where we were staying.

There was around 4 resorts up there so you could take your pick for eating.

We stayedat Erawan Palms - the beach was absolutley beautiful, however the neighbouring Sea Gypsies filthy and polluting.

You take the good with the bad.

enjoy your hols on Phi Phi - it is special.

Just returned from Koh Phi Phi - the beach is as beautiful as a beach can be . Stayed at the very fine Phi Phi Island Cabana Hotel recently reopened after massive post Tsunami reconstruction work . What must have mislead the report regarding beach conditions is that during full moon period ,ebb causes water to recede in Loh Dalam Bay for a few hours in the early afternoon hours - an incredible sight . This does not affect Tonsai Bay where water is deeper .Don't hesitate to go there . Go and enjoy it.

If you go ,don't miss Daniella's " Piazetta" -Italian excellent pizza and pasta near Paddy Divers .
