Phi Phi Don Chukit Resort
Ranked #36 of 39 Hotels in Ko Phi Phi Don
Reviewed February 21, 2011

We arrived in phi phi not having booked any accommodation only to discover there was virtually nowhere with availability. We had no option but to take this hotel from the touts at 1700 bahts per room. I have to agree with the majority of reviews that this place was an absolute disgrace. Some attempts had been made to paint the rooms, the mattresses seemed new and the air con units were new and very effective. But that is all you could say in its favour. The room was very small and oppressive with dark old furniture and was full of mosquitoes. The gaps around the windows meant it was difficult to keep them out. The bedding was dirty and full of hairs. The bathroom was a nightmare - dirty washbasin and toilet and came complete with cockroach. The pathways around the rooms were broken and dangerous. They had their own bonfire going burning all their rubbish. Breakfast was inedible. This hotel was a terrible introduction to Phi Phi and to be avoided at all costs. I would strongly recommend pre- booking hotel before arrival on this island and to carefully research where you choose to stay on review sites. Needless to say we only stayed here for one night and did the rounds of the other hotels the next morning to find somewhere better.

Broken showerheads and yellowish stained tiles are definitely not = US$130 per night!
Very near the sea...near where longtail boats stop for tourists to alight? hmm..not exactly what i want the view to be..

MY ADVICE, DON'T STAY AT ANY HOTELS HERE..IT'S JUST WAY TOO NOISY..ON A SMALL ISLAND, WITH THE SAME NUMBER OF TOURISTS AS PATONG? THAT'S CRAZY.

Ok, upon arriving it was great because they met us at the pier and were able to take us straight to the hotel. Completely unexpected and a great relief.
However, pretty much ended there. The first room they gave us had only dry wall for a ceiling, the paint was peeling all over the walls and it was dark and really run down. We thought that that may be what they were all like and soon learnt otherwise. Upon changing rooms our new room had no mosquito net, we opted for the fan room (HUGE mistake) the room got so so so hot because we couldn't open the windows at all and the shower head would spin around and around soaking everything and I found a massive cockroach on the ground. A pity because the location is great but I'd never stay here again.

If you don't believe this review and are prepared to risk staying here, do yourself a favour and only book one night as we did. If you are repulsed when you are shown your room, take the time to walk 10 mins to the other side of the island and compare what is on offer over there. You are likely to find that you are better off to forfeit the one night payment and not even stay here as even with the loss of payment you will find much nicer and less expensive accommodation on the other side. We have travelled extensively throughout this beautiful country and also the Middle East and this is absolutely the worst place we have encountered.
P.S. - Swimming Pool Notice - if using the pool after 5pm you will be charged 2,000 Baht.

Having travelled around thailand for three weeks and stayed in LOTS of different hotels this was by far the worst hotel... not only in thailand , the worst hotel iv ever seen in my life- we couldnt actually bring ourselves to stay for one night here!!!

When we arrived to our beach front bungalow there was coke cans left on the table and chairs and old bits of food left over.. obviously they hadnt actually cleaned the room properly.
Going in side the sort of window (which u couldnt actually see out of) was COVERD in insects- mosquitos spiders all sorts. The room was tiny, not even enough space to put ur suitcases on the floor. The fridge had dirt all down it.... and then the worst was in the bathroom- RED STAINS all over the toilet seat- once i saw this we packed our bags and moved to a cheaper hotel that was a million times nicer down the road called andaman beach resort and we also stayed in phi phi villa resort - both were beautiful hotels that i would reallyyy recomend!
In the brochure this hotel had a pool which looked like a reasonable size ... it was about 2 metres wide and closed at 5 oclock!!!

On the plus side the hotel included free dinnner- which was quite generous portions and tasty thai food- BUT IT WASNT GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME TO EVERRRRR RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL!!!

THIS IS THE WORST HOTEL iv ever stayed in.. AVOID it as much as you can! No one ever ends up staying there all move to one of phi phis nicer hotels- theres lots and this is not one of them!!!
