We stayed here for a few days. We stayed in the Teka Room (Baan Mai). The walk up to our room was dreadful. It was a hike up a very steep incline. Had we know this before we may have asked for a different room. Room was comfortable despite the hike. The food was amazing and I would recommend the Thai green curry chicken. The pool was pretty small and looked dirty because the water looked green. However, after looking carefully looking at the tiles it was the tiles color that made the water look green. Hotel may want to rethink changing that to a dark blue since the green tile makes it look like dirty unclean water.
Breakfast was ok but nothin spectacular.. Ended up eating Koko crunch most morning. The resort was conveniently located so close to the beach, local places to eat and any many bars. Would recommend this place.

Dear Venry_Here_and_There

Good Day!
Warm greetings from Krabi Tipa Resort and Spa

We are thankful that you stay with us during your holiday and we truly appreciate that you give time to review for our hotel.

About our rooms, Teak house and Bungalow rooms are little bit far from the reception and you need to walk for about 2 minutes. The setting of those rooms are garden setting and some teak house are sea view. If you want to stay in a modern style rooms then we can recommend our guest to stay in Deluxe rooms or either they can stay in Gran Deluxe rooms and if they are having their family during their holiday then they can stay in our Family rooms.
But with the review that you wrote all of the staff and the management were overwhelmed and they are inspired to work harder and give their best service to our valued guest.

We are looking forward and welcome you again in your next visit.

Best Regards,
Krabi Tipa Resort and Spa, Aonang

We travelled with my husband and our 9 months old son on the last week of february 2014. The hotel located in really nice place! Short walking to the beach and to the stores etc. We had the Delux-room. I think it was poorly cleaned.. The room had also lots of ants in the toilet. The hotel is kind of located in the middle of the jungle. On the front side of the hotel is the main street of Ao Nang but in the backside is wild jungle. The hotel is also located somewhat high above the sea level and you can walk higer and higer. Some of the rooms are high up, forexample the teak houses. I guess they give rooms that are closer to the lobby to people with children. Couple of times I saw big rats in our front door....:/

The pool area is very poor. and the water in the pool was disguisting... I don't think they were cleaning it up as they should! Breakfast was sayed to be "american style"... well, it was ok. but they only had one worker there to fry eggs and omelets etc. so it easily got jammed with queue. We also notised that if you went to have breakfast after 9, (breakfast time 6.30-10) there was not much left and after 9.20 or so they didn't even fill it up anymore. So it was best to go there on time!
They also changed the system with the beach towels when we stayed there. At first you had to go to the lobby and rent towels witch had to be returned at 6p.m back there. Then they chanced it so that the cleaning lady should have brought new towels every day. in our case we never get any towels to our room, so we had to go to the lobby everytime and they were every time wondering what we are talking about as there should be towels in the rooms...anyway the towel system was a mess.
For one night we ate at the hotel.. The food was not so good.. I don't recommend the restaurant in the hotel...
The staff of the hotel was ok.
If you're going to spend lots of time in the hotel, then I suggest you look for a better and classier hotel but for us this was ok, as we only spend the nights there. At night it was quiet and no noise etc. The beds were extremely hard!!!

Greetings from Krabi Tipa Resort

We are thankful that you have stayed with us during your holiday and we truly appreciate for the honest review you have written for this will inspire us to improve the facilities and the services we were offering to our valued guest.

Regarding with the room, if our guest booked a bungalow or a teak house then they need to walk a little bit or if they do not want to walk then we have our buggy service to bring them to their respective rooms in bungalow and teak house. Our buggy service is available 24/7.

With the issue of the swimming pool, the pool may looks like dirty because of the tiles that is colored green but in fact the in charge department were always cleaning it before it opens.

In the restaurant we put additional staffs to make our service faster and be convenient to our guest.

We apologize for the inconvenience you have encountered during your stay with us but were still hoping and welcome you to your next visit with us

We been booking this with the Andaman Sky and we are very happy we booked here. This resort is very clean and spacious. It may not be the most fancy resort but it is clean and very Thai in nature, just the way we like it. I warning you though, if you are older, don't bother with this place. Too many stairs and alot of the rooms are on the hill. Staff are very friendly and attending. Breakfast here is so so, but who cares when there are so many options just outside the resort. This is resort is right in the middle of things, just the way we like it. We will definitely coming back here again. I recommend taking the Teak Bungalow, it is very Thai and traditional.

We chose a bungalow and it was probably the furthest bungalow from reception, which was perfect for us. Lovely bungalow and views of trees tops from the bed. The staff would drive us to our bungalow, but we didn't mind the 7 minute walk. Peaceful, clean, lovely and far away from the hordes of tourists in Krabi at peak season. So much so, that we left the region after 2 nights, instead of the initial plan to stay 5 nights. This hotel was our respite, so would recommend if you're going to Krabi in February.

Me and my friend - we had booked a superior room but after checking in they took us to a teak bungalow. We had read not so good reviews (from Tripadvisor) about the bungalows so we wanted to change it to a regular superior room. They agreed but the only free room was in a staff building and the room stank like sewer and lacked many basic things (like hair dryer, safety deposit box and any kind of decoration). So we complained again and the next day we got a room near the pool area. This room was nice.

Pros:
- great location near beach, restaurants and shops
- nice service
- nice jungle-like environment
- quiet rooms (we slept well)
- good, working air-conditioner
- ok breakfast
- clean rooms and other areas
- complimentary water in the room

Cons:
- you might not get a room you booked --> be prepared to complain
- very hard bed (some might prefer that, my back didn't)
- very high pillow (some might prefer that, my neck didn't)
- after showering the bathroom flooded since the sewer didn't take water well
- wifi worked properly only in the lobby

Room Tip: Ask for a regular rooom in the pool are - not a bungalow.

We been here for 5 nights. The location was nice, you find everything in the area in a walkable distance. The beach is just 2 mins walking distance and the sunset view is also nice. The street outside this resort is alive until midnight still the resort is quiet. Breakfast was ok. You may request for a room near to the reception or pool area if you are not healthy to walk as to reach to some rooms you need to walk through a small hill slope.

The room was clean and the housekeeping and other services were fine. We requested for a replacement to the kettle and it was done in less than five minutes. The island hopping starts from this area in Ao Nang so you can avoid the time waiting for hotel pickup.

Only thing I did not like in this hotel was the wifi password which was tough to remember and kept on prompting for every login.
