“Perfect Phi Phi Outpost”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

Mama's was like an oasis in the desert of the phi phi tourist village. Ton Sai is a fun, albeit touristy town with some good food and fun bars. Heading away from Ton Sai it is a short pleasant walk to the hotel passing some nice sea views and even cows grazing in a local soccer field. The staff/service is great. The food was fantastic (especially breakfast). The room/view/beach were all perfect to step away from the hustle and bustle of Phi Phi Don.

Stayed 3 nights here and we we're actually in bed with a stomach bug most of the time. The staff were friendly and caring and as the hotel is small it makes it feel cozy with a sense of community. Decent breakfast and good location if you want to get some sleep on the island though you can still hear the music booming away in the distance. Really nice place to visit!

We stayed at Mama's for 3 nights and from our arrival we were made very welcome by the thorough an helpful member of the management.

Located in a ridiculously picturesque part of the island, Mama's is only a short walk from the Pier and Phi Phi town. This allows those who like to party hard a nice place to rest prior to and after.

All of the staff members where very friendly and extremely helpful. The staff were making changes to the resort (additional sun bathing platform and night lights) whilst we were there which looked for the better.

The rooms are so unique and depending on which block you stay in (A,B,C,D) will afford you your very own special view onto the sea front. Mama's restaurant is clean and offers good food.

The cliff bar is great, especially when the sun is setting with yet again friendly service from "Captain" and "Tom Cruise".

Overall an excellent stay in a picturesque area with great value for money. HIGHLY recommended.

Mama Beach was perfect for what we were looking for, beach front, quiet, 10 min walk from the pier/downtown, very clean and very helpful staff. The girls at the front desk were always willing to help. Specially during the typhoon we got, the pier was closed for the day, they helped us with all information necessary so we could catch our flight out of Phuket.

The location of the hotel was great, it's right on the end of what the locals call 'nice beach', and they aren't wrong. It has stunning views, and is far enough away from the clubs to allow you some sleep, if that's what you're after.

There is a fantastic little bar called The Cliff Bar right outside and is run by some of the nicest people we met whilst away. They were always having a joke with me and my girlfriend and the prices are more than reasonable.

Other than that I was massively disappointed with our stay. The breakfast was shocking with a poor selection, that is covered in flies. We made the mistake of eating there for dinner one night and both got severe food poisoning from the Shrimp. When we told the staff they shrugged it off and made no attempt at an apology.

He manager of the hotel was particularly dismissive of customers unless you could speak French and made no effort to assist with any queries we had whilst on the island. On one occasion he answered his mobile whilst we were talking and walked off without a word?! Not good service!!

An overpriced hotel in a lovely location.

Our friends recommended to stay in this hotel. It's probably the nicest hotel in Phi Phi. It's located in the quiet side of the island, so you can relax in its private beach. If you're looking for some party, you can also stay at this hotel because it's only 15 minutes away from the crowded bars. The positive thing is that you can go out and have fun and then sleep with no noisy backpackers disturbing.
Breakfast is amazing, French style. And the staff is very friendly.
