“Will be back here again.”
Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Loved this hotel, fab location right on the beach with lovely sun beds to relax on, rooms and staff are wonderful but best thing is the restaurant. Best food on phi phi and very well priced, cheaper than most but food is to die for. Would definitely stay again.

we loved our stay in this little place and especially the chill out atmosphere of the hotel (including the chill out music!). Rooms are very comfortable and i loved the white and clean design, and the best is the location of the hotel directly on the beach. compared to what we saw on the island (and what I had checked out on the web before choosing this hotel), for us the best place to stay of Phi Phi Island! As the island is terribly overpriced, the prices of this hotel seemed absolutely reasonably for the quality.

Many pluses for me here: I quite liked the design of the rooms, though I can see how that's to personal taste. Bed was comfy, and wifi was free (think this might have been recently changed, since I read an earlier review that wifi was chargeable). The room I had had a great view of the sea, and the personal sundeck was a boon. The breakfast was fantastic - good variety and quality. Location was great for a quiet night's sleep.

Most of all, Mama Beach excels in their staff. I lost my handphone while at the hotel, and was on the ferry back to Krabi by the time I realised it. I called Mama Beach again,and the staff actually went to the restaurant I visited (in the city centre) to check for the phone, and searched the hotel for my phone again. Because of their thorough checks, I managed to find my phone back, and they posted it to me. Really pleased and grateful.

Nestled against the limestone cliffs at a far corner of the beach, Mama’s is just far enough away to be peaceful yet close enough so you can walk down and see what you’re not missing on the busy tourist strip. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is generous and delicious – it’s worth paying extra for an espresso as they make it well (and French filter coffee is frankly grotesque). We had a Grand Sea View Room and we wouldn’t trade it for any of the others. The open-air bathroom wasn’t a surprise but the excellent view of the lush, green cliffs was. We’d come again.

Very nice hotel just a 5 minutes walk from all the main town in Phi Phi. You could say that you get the feel of being away from everything, but you are actually in the middle of it.
The rooms are very well set, very clean, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel restaurant is fantastic, and the breakfast is incredible!

I could not find a nicer place to have either lunch or dinner in the island, if you go the restaurants in town, they may be good, but the noise, the smell, and all the hustle around them will just make your dinner a not relaxing one... At Mama Beach, you are just eating at the beach...

Room Tip: Beach front room are great, I would go for the ones at the higher floor.

I have stayed in Mama Beach for 5 days. Service level is high. Excellent breakfast. Rooms are very classy and modern (I would say an Apple kind of vibe). Location is close enough to the village but far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. Beach is very nice with a spectacular view on the 'mountain'.

Only downside was the shower which was a little complicated and warm water seemed to be scarce. We booked a snorkle tour with Mama Beach and that was unfortunately very disappointing. We expected them to know the right trips with the right touroperator but it was a huge disappointment. They were however kind enough to give the commission earned to us as a compensation.

Conclusion: very good resort and probably one of the best on Ko Phi Phi for a relatively good price.

Room Tip: The more expensive have a breathtaking sea view. The cheaper rooms in the back have not a spectacula...

I stayed here with my parents and brother (we are all adults) and had an amazing stay. The staff were friendly and helpful.
Breakfast buffet was delicious. The fresh orange juice was a great touch every morning.
They had beginner and intermediate yoga classes on a platform looking out over the ocean in the evenings at 6:15pm which was a really nice way to relax before dinner.
Food at the restaurant was really good (both Thai and international options).

I was hesitant about Phi Phi because of all the tourists but Mama has an amazing location where it is quiet and peaceful. Just a 10 minute walk from where the ferry drops you off, also.

The rooms were clean and well maintained.

Room Tip: Try to get an ocean view room!
