Firstly, we arrived at Phi Phi with perhaps a misconception that it would be slightly less developed as it was (maybe 30 years ago?).
The room at the hotel itself was perfectly adequate, with good aircon and a comfortable bed. The shower was somewhat temperamental and difficult to set at a steady temperature. The one main thing to note with the resort is that it is built on a slope, so be prepared for a climb if you are given one of the rooms furthest from the lobby/restaurant area.
The staff weren’t really helpful and communication was difficult with them particularly in the morning at breakfast which could only be described as adequate at best. Maybe they just weren’t morning people, but you certainly weren’t met with a smile when ordering your eggs or “secret” bacon that only made fleeting appearances.
The beach area is ok but the a walk away from the town further round the island offered better options.
Two points worth noting are that any decent off beach snorkelling isn’t possible from here and beware of the rocks which are slippery and lethal.
Do take a longboat out for a half day as the snorkelling off shore is great.
Overall the resort was a little tired and past its best, perhaps that could be said of the overall service apart a few staff.More
