Great option away from Tonsai but close enough to the action

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Dec 28, 2022via mobile
The reviews here are so mixed that I was nervous but this is a really nice property.

Rooms: these are wonderful. We had 2207 which is a seaside room on top of the hill. It’s a lot of uneven stairs up but if it’s not your thing, they will pick you up or drop you off. We walked mostly and generally felt like the walk was worth the view. The room itself is spacious with 360 degree views, making for gorgeous sunsets. Huge balcony, Air conditioning worked well, nice huge shower that was hot, and generally everything you can ask for in a room (fridge, plenty of outlets, huge beach towels, king size bed, etc)

Service: this is why the resort got four stars for me. They have access to everything (you can book a long tail for the day, arrange a taxi, rent snorkels or kayaks, etc) but no one is knowledgeable. Ordering food and drinks took ages at the restaurant and you’d have to ask to have tables cleaned etc. Also we were doing a sunrise tour of Maya bay and they couldn’t help us arrange breakfast or even any snacks to take (we asked the day before). It’s such a bummer as this could make this a five star experience.

Beach: This is also where the resort fell short. The beach itself is fine although they really need to replace the chairs (think old white plastic chairs that are super beaten up) and very few umbrellas.

Restaurant: breakfast was included and pretty good, lunch and dinner menu was decent (not the best Thai food but fine for the resort). Drinks were good.

Dive shop: it was closed! This is a pain as we had to take a long tail to tonsai pier to dive since this is the only shop on the island. Apparently they open next month though.

Summary:
We really struggling to figure out where to stay as we wanted to be able to get to restaurants but we also didn’t want to be in a noisy club scene. This worked out really well - it’s a short taxi boat to town for 100 bhat (per person) each way before 6pm and 150 after 6:30. We were able to get to the dive shop each morning that way and we also managed to have dinner and drinks in town a couple of the nights.

So it’s a good balance if you want a little bit of R&R but also some life.

We had our second stay at Phi Phi The Beach Resort in November 2022. We stayed for 6 days in the 'standard room'. Our first visit was in 2019 when we only had booked for 2 nights because we were travelling around in Krabi. We thought that 2 nights were to short, so we decided to stay longer on our second time there.

The location is absolutely amazing and the absolute best we have had after staying on multiple other good resorts in both Railay, Ao Nang, Koh Tao and Koh Samui. It has chill tropical beach vibes and is perfect for relaxing. The food and drinks at the restaurant are also really good, and was even better now than in 2019. The beach has fine smooth sand and sunbeds with parasols for the guests. The water is crystal blue with exotic coloured fishes swimming around. There also is a beach bar with drinks, fireshows at night and snorkeling/kayak-equipment for rental which is just next to the resort. You can also book trips to Monkey Beach, Bamboo Island, Maya Beach etc. at the beach bar. We booked a private longtail for three hours and got picked up at the beach and went to Maya Bay.

You have to get to the resort by longtail boat from Tonsai Pier because it is located on Longbeach, but it is only a 10 minute ride, and it was always taxiboats around if we wanted to go to Tonsai. We had a couple of evenings in Tonsai, but we were very glad that we hadn't booked a hotel there because of all the nightlife and partying, but fun to explore some other restaurants and shops.

The resort is in a hill, but we walked to our room from the beach several times a day and didn't mind. We used around two-three minutes to the beach. If you don't want to walk, the resort offers to drive you to your room from the reception. The room was standard, but clean and nice. When staying for several days we would have enjoyed if the resort had a fitness room/gym with some equipment. That would have been a big plus.

Last but not least, the staff were amazing. We got picked up by the hotels longtail boat on our arrival at Tonsai Pier. The staff at both the restaurant and the reception were so friendly and helpful, and made us feel very welcome on our stay.

We absolutely love this place and will definitely come back!❤️

Beautiful resort with individual cabins set on a hillside overlooking the beach and sea. We booked basic cabin and it had everything we needed. Don’t be put off by the steep hill as jeeps outside reception take you up and down. Breakfast is included which is buffet style with something for everyone. This resort is accessible by longboat taxis which cost between 100 and 150 baht each depending on the time. Fantastic fun when you get the hang of getting on and off. Would definitely recommend this resort. Woke up every morning with monkeys sat outside

Group of 8 adults stayed here 4 nights in bungalows with Garden view which was great. The more expensive rooms are with grander balconies and views but much higher up. Shuttle service provided but we were quite okay to walk.
Great location on Long beach, easy from the hustle in TonSai, with 3-4 other restaurants on the beach an easy stroll.
The walk into TonSai is easily doable with just one short steep climb, though best avoided at night. Easy longtail boat (150thb) is the way back.
The beach at hotel is fab: gentle soft white sand and the tropical fish at your feet in crystal clear water a wonderful experience for those not into diving or snorkeling.
Breakfast is quite good with Western and Asian choices.
However, the stars of this resort are the staff at this place from the manager Pattaya, down to those working in the bars, restaurant, the drivers and reception - all super friendly and professional. The special decoration of my brother’s room for his birthday was unique and greatly appreciated! They made our stay special.
Highly recommend this place.

What a great place to stay and enjoy beach time, great atmosphere and fantastic staff. The meals were awesome too. The rooms were clean and serviced daily.
We had a great time here and would recommend this place.
The taxi service with the long boat to the town center is very reasonable and yoh can book it any time.
