We were with our kids 11 and 14. Decided after much research to stay on Ko Phi Phi to get a taste of the Andaman. Liked the idea of no cars, sandy beaches. The geography is indeed gorgeous. Sadly, most of Ko Phi Phi and surrounding 'famous' beaches and coves are overrun with tourists. Yes we were four of them....Very glad that we booked at the Paradise Pearl on Long Beach. Staying in town (Tonsai) looked relatively nightmarish. The hotel is a series of cute little bungalows. Not super-fancy but pretty nice and definitely picturesque. The hotel resto on the beach is so attractive. We really liked the food and the prices as well. We are not Thai Cuisine afficionados but everyone was happy with their meals, several days in a row. Prices very reasonable. The buffet breakfast was totally fine. Honestly, the beachside location with rustic tables and gorgeous scenery and sunsets makes up for any shortcomings. Desk staff at the hotel were lovely, sweet, helpful. Minimart staff were surly. Oh well. Get your stuff, pay your money, done! Most of the other resorts on Long beach looked good, altho Viking looked much more bare-bones and rustic. One tip: if you want to see the local sights especially Maya Beach go before 9 am. Otherwise it is horrifically crowded.
