Tohko Beach Resort
Ranked #24 of 38 Hotels in Ko Phi Phi Don
Reviewed January 2, 2018 via mobile

We checked in on the 30th, somewhat concerned after reading all the negative reviews. A man picked us up of the pier to take us across to the hotel. It is not near to the hub of Phi Phi and you are literally deserted.
They fully take advantage of this, a bottle of water is 30b when it’s 10 everywhere else.

We checked in and had booked a family room with a sea view as I was travelling with my brother so two separate beds. They kept asking us to move rooms as ‘to big to big. The room was very very basic to say the least. We paid for aircon and even though there is a unit in the room, it doesn’t work. A man who was the ‘manager there’ refunded us the difference and said that the hotel had been closed for two months and changed owners. Stains on all the bedding, no hot water, awful shower, Ants EVERYWHERE. Holes in mosquito nets, the only good thing about the place is the view. There is nothing at all to do there. Do not stay here if you want to see the island, dive or take any tours.

We got the 12.30 boat back round to the pier on NYE (which finally came at 2pm). If we had any excursions booked we would have missed them. We made the decision to book into a hostel for The night to try and enjoy the experience. The hostel cost 1,000b for the night and was much cleaner and more equipped than the hotel we had paid 12,000b for for 4 nights!

We met 6 other people at 5pm to collect the 5.30 boat back to tohko at the pier and looked for the sign, it never showed up. Not a single Taxi boat wanted to take us back as it was ‘too choppy’ We called the hotel who tried to tell us that they had been at 5.30 and no one was there, utter rubbish. They then refused to send a boat out initially. We finally got someone to take us back at 7.30 in the pitch black. Absolute joke. The manager was more concerned that we refused to pay the boat man than the fact they had just left 8 paying customers stranded!

We packed our bags that night and checked out at 8am the following morning a day early. No sorry, nothing. The manager refused to refund us saying we needed to go through agoda.

To top it off my brother was sick on the crossing back and neither of us were well that day from the food the previous day. He’s been travelling for 2 months round Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia and has not been ill once until staying here.

Out of my whole trip this one was the worst. It was not worth the amount they charge.
Out of all the huts available I was given the worst hut. They gave me bamboo hut instead of the cement ones that had big red ants all over the bathroom. On asking to why I was not given the cemented one like the others, the response was not available.
The BEACH area maintained by the resort is dirty. Don't feel like walking on it.
Food is awful. Me being a vegetarian, had to spend night empty stomach.
Walking inside the hut without slippers would not be a recommendation as the nails might prick your feet.
Overall, we were just glad we had only one day to spend here.
Would not recommend this beach resort.

If you're looking to be cut off from the world, this is your spot. There's only 2 ways to get here, 1. climbing through the jungle or 2. water taxi. There are a lot of mosquitoes and creepy crawlies, which is to be expected when you're in an open bungalow. We actually switched to a closed air conditioned bungalow because we couldn't handle all the spiders we were seeing in the original room.

There's pretty much a curfew here. No internet in the rooms, only the main lobby area. Electricity stops working 6am until night time. So no charging phones or laptops. There's also ants everywhere.

However, the private beach and the water being just steps away from you is amazing.

Having read all the reviews I wasn't sure what to expect & yes there were a few tears on a sheet & a few marks on another but nothing major & a really fabulous place to down tools. You do need to plan your trips into 'town' as if can get expensive. I only noticed afterwards that we'd paid 600baht each for the 5:30pm return I'm assuming as they had no ferry pick ups however on both occasions the man who collected us also stocked up on some supplies. It is a fabulous spot for snorkelling, reading a book or playing games on the beach. Make sure you use their longtail boat within the times provided as it can get really expensive hiring a longtail from the pier also if the weather changes after 5:30pm you'll end up having to get accommodation for the night!
We did a fantastic trip with Roshanna tour. It left at 10am & was back at 4:45pm so excellently times for our stay - that seemed to be the only tour we could do but it was amazing - 1500baht pp & less for under 12's. We saw all the sites around PhiPhi & the tour guides were fantastic too.
We stayed in a 2 double bed cottage on the beach which was perfect for 2 adults 1 child. There are no cupboards for storage so it can get messy & difficult trying to find stuff but for 3 nights we coped fine.
