I booked this hotel online after reading many many reviews from Phi Phi island hotels.
I was expecting some issues but not as I faced.
First of all, location is terrible. Dont get me wrong. It is a beautiful place but my room was up to the hill. I was on vacation and didnt want to do trekking all the way to my room every time! 15 minutes walking up to the room and many employees from hotel passed by me and never asked if I want a ride up.
Second, it is very far from center. They say it is a 30 minutes walk but actually it is one hour and believe me, it is a terrible "road". You need to escalate mountain, stairs made by tree roots, mud and mosquitos. If it is during day light, it is ok, but as I was alone, long tail boat riders refused to take me back at night as they dont want to "lose" money taking only me, even though I offer to pay for two people, they just say "walk back". It doesnt matter that it was dark and it was in the middle of the jungle, they dont care. And in my opinion, also hotel doesnt care as they dont have a boat to help their visitors getting back knowing that this situation happens. I didnt mind paying by it, but hotel should, at least, had one boat to help.
And third, expect your bags to be thrown evey where during boat ride to get to hotel and back to pier.
I regretted many times staying here because I felt trapped.
There are many other hotels near the pier which are a better option.
Said that, I also had to face a cockroach in my bed one night. But as I said, all hotes have this problem (not that I liked it).
Breakfast is good.
Restaurant also serve a good food.
