We initially booked Twin Palm Bungalows for a 3 night stay. I had read lots of reviews prior but tried to be open minded about it - we travelled as a group of 6 mates and didn't mind a place that was in the hub of it as we were game for nightlife and it was also pretty appealing as it does sit right on the beach ...
On arrival we were shown to our room (which is literally no more than a bed with barely room to put your suitcase down and an incomplete bathroom with a cold water shower) the bed was covered in black filth which had been fired from the air con unit and there was a massive cockroach laying on the bathroom floor! We informed the staff and the sheets were replaced and the air con unit cleaned - my boyfriend took care of the cockroach, but it wasn't a great start.
It was whilst getting ready for our evening out on Phi Phi that we discovered the impact of noise from the bars on the beach - the bass literally had our whole room vibrating and despite the signs in reception that warned of loud music until 1.30am the music was just as loud until 4/5am when we returned from our night out.
My boyfriend and I awoke after a rough nights sleep fighting off bugs to find we were covered in bites and there were spots of blood all over the bed.
Unsurprisingly our group decided to cut our trip here short and left after 2 nights - we let the staff know why we were leaving - we weren't even offered an apology so didn't hold out much hope of getting a refund for our final night.
The cost of a room may be slightly cheaper in comparison to other accommodation on the island but I cannot urge you strongly enough to pay a bit extra for something acceptable as twin palms definitely tainted our views of Phi Phi altogether!!
