We stayed at Phi Phi the beach for 3 nights in Jan 2014. Overall, a very nice place to stay with courteous, responsive staff.
- excellent views as their bungalows are built into the hill
- good selection for breakfast. Be warned, selection doesn't vary greatly day by day.
- staff are always willing to drive you up since the stairs are quite steep and numerous to get back to your room
- Fresh fish grill, while significantly expensive, offers unbelievably fresh seafood. We had 2 tiger prawns, 1 blue crab and 1 red snapper and the bill was about $55. (Sold by weight)
- the resort offers a private trip to Maya bay, which is definitely worth it. Don't expect to do much snorkelling, just enjoy the beach.
- regardless of what you read, there is free wifi and it spans the whole area including rooms and beach very well.
- completely complimentary mini-bar that is restocked daily.
- the beach itself isn't much. There is about 30 - 40 feet of water before coral and rocks take over and you need water shoes. Bring water shoes!!
- air conditioning in our bungalow takes several hours to cool the place down.
- stairs are quite steep and not very well lit in the night
- safe in the room comes with no instructions. After 3 failed attempts, I called the front desk. They sent someone over within minutes.
Altogether, an excellent place to stay for a few nights.
