The dissapointment started when we arrived with the ferry and all other hotels picked up their guests at the pier. Only 'our' hotel seemed to be missing...
To begin with the positive: The rooms are very spacious and clean. The only problem is that the water of the shower flows towards the toilet and not to the drain. However, if you put a towel in front of the shower, the flooding can be avoided.
Long beach is a dream and really worth to take a hotel on its shore.
Unfortunately, the hotel only had deckchairs on the pool, which needed to be carried down the stairs unless you prefer lying directly on the sand.
The breakfast was okay. Not much of selection, but qualitywise okay.
Staff was quite unfriendly and unable or better unwilling to help.
In a nutshell:
We wanted to stay at Long Beach and looked after hotels. Even as we were off season, the prices were already quite high for Thailand. So we decieded to take a hotel with a fair price-value-ratio. According to this, it is certainly a good choice if you ask after your wishes (even if you feel uncomortable after a few times).
However, if you stay at Phi Phi should be unforgettable and you are not looking at your wallet, we recommend to look for another option.
