The hotel has 3 private beaches - the main one fronting the reception was magic. Crystal clear aquamarine waters and tropical reef fish nipping at your feet a few feet into the water. A small coral reef separates this beach from the larger Long Beach to the left. We have visited most islands in Thailand by now and I have to say I have never been able to step off a hotel's private beach and snorkel over to a coral reef barely 10 feet away. Wont see as many fish as you would on a large reef, but still, for us it was magic.
Would choose this hotel purely for its location. The food was average. The pathways to Long Beach and the town were "challenging" to say the least - wouldn't like to be on them in the dark and less than a 100% sober. The service was patchy but generally cheerful.
The speedboat tour to Phi Phi Ley ( Pi Le, Maya Beach, a couple of other great snorkeling spots ), booked through the Viking, turned out good.
All in all, some of the best waters we have ever seen and the Viking gives you great access to that.
