Holiday Inn Resort Phi Phi Island
Ranked #3 of 38 Hotels in Ko Phi Phi Don
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 16, 2012

After one night in Ton Sai bay, we decided to change our hotel to Holiday Inn.
The location of the resort is excelent.
The perfect choice if you want to relax, lay on the beach, swim, snorkeling and do some boat trip around the islands .
The beach is for me one of the "plus spot" of the resort. The trees on the beach provide shadow, fun spots and at same time you can see diferent kinds of birds. The water is great. I stayed hours doing snorkeling around the beach.
The service is kite good, pleople are very friendly from the reception to the housekeeping.
Bungalows are very clean and well preserved.

It's not cheap but good value for money choice.
We booked 2 night and stayed 2 more.

Definitely I recomend this resort.

Dear JVilarinho

Thank you for the nice comments. I agree with you that Tonsai environment is very different from our hotel setting.
I am delighted to read that you enjoyed your holiday with us and I hope you will have the opportunity of welcoming you back in the not too distant future.

The Holiday Inn Resort was absolutely fabulous. From the moment we arrived the service was first class and we were greeted with cool drinks and a free upgrade. The pools in the resort are fantastic and the beautiful white sand beach is kept immaculately clean by the staff who patrol it several times a day. The rooms themselves were huge and well designed and gave us a beautiful view over the turquoise sea.The food within the resort was delicious and the staff could not do enough to look after you. During our stay we hired a speedboat to take us over to Krabi for the day and the crew provided us with an excellent packed lunch, drinks and plenty of photo opportunities The diving from resort was also very good and I would recommend it for all levels. All in all I cannot fault the resort and can only describe it as paradise! I would love to return again...

I was only here one night after transferring from a hotel in the village. The difference was night and day.

Pros:
-Beautiful, natural looking beach with hammocks and swings
-Clean, nice villas (not luxurious)
-Sunset bar
-Jasmines restaurant (next door to the hotel - is a MUST)

Cons:
-The resort is very large and spread out
-Bathrooms are tired and need an update
-Far and expensive to get to/from town
-They charge you for wifi

Prior to arriving at the resort, I was worried that it would be too quiet at night. But we found a good crowd at the beachfront bar and had a good time listening to the live music.

I wish I could have stayed here longer.

Very nice location and clear blue beach although ferry ride takes a lot longer than expected and very cramped. Hotel, pool and bar were all very nice the main downfall was the restaurant, with its slow service and unorganised staffing. However all the employees were happy and friendly and were the only reason we came back. Rooms were average to good, but the bathroom (especially shower) were a bit not so modern and had a very low water pressure.

The bathrooms in the bungalows and the curtains will be changed within the next two months as well as the showers.

Spent 3 nights in this touch of paradise.

We were upgraded to the KING CORAL BEACH STUDIO Rm 502, after being acknowledged as Priority Platinum Members. It was nice to be acknowledged as a Platinum member, as in our travels we have come across a number of hotels that don't really seem to care.

The room was great, and we were 3 meters from the waters edge.
The 'inside bathroom' was a bit dated, however, I understand that these are being updated in coming months along with the room blinds. The outside shower was fantastic and private.

The hotel itself is beautiful and I like the fact you have your own bungalow. The restaurant food was reasonably priced and very tasty. I had one of the best green curries I have ever had, and I am a huge Thai food fan.The sunset bar was a great place to have a cocktail and watch the sun go down.

We arranged a few tours through the tour desk and hired a longboat for 4 hours.
This was the highlight of our time at Phi Phi and I highly recommend it.
We felt that the tours were reasonably priced although Im sure that we could have negotiated a better deal with the drivers themselves, we were more than happy to pay as snorkeling gear was included through the hotel.

We didnt really use the pools as the beach was magic, however, both looked nice.

Staff were friendly without being over the top. Of Particular note were the staff at the Sunset Bar. One of the girls there was fantastic (didnt catch her name, but she did breakfast in the mornings also).

We look forward to going back and experiencing this tropical (somewhat isolated) paradise again!

Visited April 2012 with family and had such an amazing time.
The beach is beautiful, white sand, warm clear water,we snorkelled from the beach every day you can pick up snorkel, mask etc from hotel at no extra cost. when the tide is out you can walk out and explore the exposed reef. Our 8 year old daughter loved this.
The hotel food was excellent, great breakfast and lovely lunches at the beach restaurant and if you dont fancy eating at the hotel there are other options nearby including the sea gypsy village next to the hotel. We also walked to the other village at Ba Kao Bay which is only 1/2 hr walk away and has a few restaurants to try,they even gave us a lift back to the hotel.
We hired a longtail one day and went to Nui Bay where we were dropped off and had the beach to ourselves.the snorkelling there was unbelievable. Another day we went to Yong Gasem Bay then fished for tuna on the way back, superb. We were there during Songkran and had great fun during the water fight with the staff and other guests.
During our visit there was a tsunami warning and we were evacuated to higher ground where the staff did a great job bringing out food,water and blankets.
The staff were excellent from the manager down to the cleaners who kept our beach bungalow spotless.
We're looking forward to going back next April,only this time we'll stay longer.
