Phi Phi Relax Beach Resort
Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

The Thai staff are WONDERFUL. The drinks were creative and the masseuse is a genius. That's all I can say that was positive. The rest? The food quite frankly tasted like something you would get at Denny's. There's no power 3/4 of the day. They charge for the WORST wifi connection ever. The rooms are pitch black all day (no power, right?) which I think hides the filth. All this I could overlook- but the absolutely terrible manager? (Tall, rude French man) pretty much ruined the stay. I would never come here again and I would not ever recommend it. Any request (and we are talking about regular requests) was met with a flat out NO and he would literally wave you away and turn his back. Rude, rude, rude. An ugly person. The huts were filthy,moldy, and literally had gaps between the floorboards. The surrounding jungle is gorgeous but the rest of the place....forget it.

We enjoyed our stay here, but we would recommend only 2 up to 4 nights, that's enough to get a feeling out there. We stayed three nights, extended for one night, that's enough. If you like it quiet, just to relax, you will like this place!

positive:
- nice little beach bay when it's flood
- nice bungalows, good mosquito nets and a terrace for hanging around
- the restaurant has good food, but not extraordinary, except the daily special BBQ, that was awesome (300 to 500 baht for a large dish, get the fish)
- nice staff at the beach bar, fabulous cocktails ( apparently no happy hour)
- nice snorkeling spot in front of the restaurant

Negative:

- everything costs extra, better come with a good budget
- mattress is hard as a rock
- massage was ok, but they were not very friendly
- beach is rocky from the afternoon on
- no other opportunities to eat or go somewhere at night
- they are about to build more bungalows, so soon it's gonna be more crowded, not sure if the space there will be enough then

A secluded beach and a nice hotel by the mountains, Relax Beach has the best of both worlds. You could spend all day sleeping at the hammock, snorkeling near the shore, or indulging in the mouth-watering sea-food of the hotel. Highly recommended if you want a relaxing escape.

the best place to stay on Phi Phi Don if you are not into crazy drunk 20 somethings. I am 28 years old and did 3 nights in the main town on Phi Phi Don then 3 nights here. Private beach with excellent off shore snorkelling. some boats from the main town even bring tours in to snorkel off shore here, however beach is always only for people staying at the resort. staff very helpful and can speak english. bungalows have no hot water and electricity only from 6pm-7am but never found this to be a problem as charged electronics over night. no where to ear except at the resort itself so drinks are a little pricey like coca cola etc. kept very clean and you get given clean towels and a bottle of drinking water each day. lovely views and overall experience.

This place is a must visit when going to Thailand... have been here several times. The accomodation is very basic, and beautifully located. Great, great service and great food. Excellent snorkeling and kayaking. And several daily longboat trips to Phi Phi town if you want to go shopping in Tourist Hell or diving (private trips available). Fishing and sightseeing trips galore (to e.g. Bamboo and Monkey Islands).

Room Tip: Ocean front, if possible. You sleep 5 metres from the waves.

Our first visit to Phi Phi and we would definitely return to these beach bungalows again. We had B4 right on the beach and it was a 10 second walk to the sandy beach.
It was idyllic. Peace and quiet is what you get. No loud disco music.
It has a small bar but has a comprehensive cocktail list which we tried to work our way through. There is also a very comprehensive menu choice and the food was good.
Staff were welcoming and friendly.
Only negative was we had cold showers and there is no power during the daytime.

I stayed there for a week and it was lovely. I had a great rime and the beach cabnas arethe best...the view,the place and the atmosphere we're incredible. The food was good,the drinks very nice.
I recomend going with them on the islands tour cause it's worth it. Do a bit of snorkeling-they know all the good spots for it.
