After reading the other reviews and my own experience there I think that in staying at Baia Baia it really depends what you expect out of the place so I'll give an overview of our time there and what was good and not so good. A friend and I stayed at Baia Baia 2 weeks ago for 3 nights and on first impression thought the location was brilliant (right on the beach and near the main walking streets) and the rooms were clean and comfortable with working AC and definitely good value for money. During our stay we were out partying 2 out of the 3 nights and for this Baia Baia was brilliant - as I said, prime beachfront location and easy to get back to! However, on our last night we choose not to go out due to an early morning ferry and that is when the realization kicked in of how LOUD it is at night. Now I had read the previous reviews and thought well how loud could it really be, I'm sure with earplugs I can sleep through it - not the case! There is a beach party bar right next door (parties are on every night) and the bass is so loud that it physically shakes the huts you stay in. That said, the music does stop completely at 3am and from that point we did manage to get some sleep but were rather exhausted by the morning and slept most of the ferry ride back to phuket.
So overall, if you plan on going out partying every night you are in Koh Phi Phi then this place couldn't be better, the room we stayed in was super clean (coming from 2 neat freak girls) - though there are some bugs, your on an island what do you expect - the AC worked really well, room was serviced every day (just drop your key in at reception when you go out for the day) and the location could not have been better! However, if you aren't planning to do this then I would suggest you stay elsewhere as the noise really is impossible to sleep through - I can normally sleep through anything - and it would likely ruin your holiday time there.
