Located close to all the action, the pier, travel kiosks, restaurants, clothes shops etc.
During my pandemic affected visit many bars and restaurants were closed. Mon. to Fri. only private boat trips available.
Reception staff friendly and cheerful.
I decided to stay in a Garden Wing room after reading the Banyan Wing rooms and walkways are timber flooring. The Garden Wing is at the rear of property so you have to walk through the Banyan Wing. Quiet time is guaranteed.
My room (ground floor) was large and modern looking. Quiet aircon worked well, comfortable bed with clean linen, wardrobe with hanging space, no shelving for clothes but I used the 2 chairs and top of the safe.
The TV had many channels but only one dedicated english being Aljarzeera.
Seperate shower recess with good hot water and pressure. You know you have hit the big time when your basin has hot water, especially on an island.
The large balcony area has table and chairs plus clothes rack. Of course it overlooks beds of plants. Be aware that mozzies are aplenty. I had my room sprayed when I checked in to my room and they hang around the balcony.
My first breakfast was selecting from 3 options which I put down to lack of guests but following mornings it was a decent buffet setup. My breakfast enabled me to go through the day until dinner time.
The pool was maintained every day hoence the water nice and clear. I take the point from another reviewer re the lack of sunloungers. Must have been fun before the pandemic came along.
As a solo traveler my only disappointment was with the TV but overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Since Koh Phi Phi doesn't allow any vehicles on the island, it is good to have a resort that is at walking distance from the pier. If you call them a day earlier and inform them your arrival time, they send a person to get your luggage. The swimming pool is small but the resort is across the beach and the restaurant is next to the beach. It looks more like a crowded place sometimes and breakfast has limited vegetarian options.

A lovely hotel, just 4 mins walk from Tonsai Pier. We chose a garden facing balcony room, with view of the pool too. We were not really bothered by mosquitoes as we always kept the balcony windows as well as net partitions closed. The rooms were extremely silent with no noise from adjacent rooms. The Daikin split AC was also extremely efficient & silent. Breakfast was nice with an old lovely lady making excellent oval omlettes. Other stuff was also very good. We were surrounded by so many eateries that we were spoilt for choice. Would readily stay again.

A lovely hotel, with fabulous views overlooking the sea for breakfast. A great location, quiet enough from the bars and clubs but walking distance to everything you need (including the pier). Staff were polite and friendly, and because we were getting a late boat out they let us leave our luggage with reception and shower in the gym before leaving the island. Would 100% recommend.

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst travelling for 2 weeks around Thailand.

I don’t know how I feel about this hotel.

The pool is stunning. The location is spot on. The reception staff are lovely.

The experience though, felt dampened by the room. The bed was rock solid and so were the pillows. The air con was rubbish and barely cooled the room down… If aircon is advertised, it should at least cool the room down to a reasonable temperature.

I can almost overlook it as we used the hotel as base for the 3 days, but, I would have been really disappointed if I had planned on spending a lot of time in the hotel.

We made 2 separate bookings because our room was not available for 1st night. We checked out the next day of our 1st room at 7am and went on a half day boat ride, we came back at 1pm and we still had to wait past 1pm before our second room was made available even though we had stayed a previous night. The desk lady argued with us. but what really got me angry is we broke a coffee cup and they charged us a ridiculous amount of 500 baht, which amounts to over 20$ CAD. That cup was worth no more then 2 dollars. Accidents happen, in my country they wouldn't even bother to charge for a broken cup. This is outright abuse. If you book this hotel, don't break a cup or anything else for that matter or they'll take you to the cleaners for it. This is not good service.

Otherwise the rooms are nice and so is the premise but they really have to improve service and not make a fuss for a damn cup of coffee. It took them 2 minutes to find out the cup was broken, but had us wait past 1pm for our 2nd room, goes to show where their priorities are.

Somewhat disappointed

This was probably the worst hotel we’ve ever stayed in. There is one positive-It is in a good location. The rest Is a nightmare and we only stayed one night … losing money for a pre paid room, but at least salvaging our holiday. The room was filthy ! The mattress cover had a dried blood stain. The filthy shower did not drain, the toilet leaked and smells and the rest of the room was dated. Photos are pretty deceiving too! We expected a decent pool area… there are only 7 sun loungers!!! When I explained why I was checking out early the staff said that
Housekeeping checks the room so bedding couldn’t be stained. So basically called me a liar! Head housekeeper accompanied me to the room so I could ‘prove’ my point. She shrugged her shoulders and said ‘well I missed that’ still no apology! I asked to speak with the manager but told she was in Bkk. I asked to speak with a supervisor but told there isn’t one. An apology would have helped but that certainly wasn’t offered. Disgusting room and service!

The location of this property is ideal if you want to be in the heart of the action at Tonsai. The property has a charming 1980s feel to it. The pool is of concern and a serious accident waiting to happen! No support rail into the pool and the support was are chipped so difficult to hold on to! In fact some people thought the diving boards were the only way in! The pool floor is starting to submerge further and goes soft under your feet in the middle which feels odd and somewhat concerning. The tiled area surrounding the pool is also a health and safety hazard and very slippery. The bedrooms are dark and dreary the furniture old and tatty with room facilities average at vest! On a positive note breakfast was good and staff friendly. With some investment and TLC this property has major potential.

4 night stay at phi phi banyan villa bought back out love for the island.

Our experience with some hotels on phi phi don in the past years pre covid have not been great. However coming back to phi phi after the pandemic to banyan villa reminded us why we come here.

The staff were great. Really helpful, very happy and thoughtful.

24 hour security gives banyan Villa a safe vibe.

Although advised against valuables were left in the room on display without problems.

Rooms cleaned to a high standard every day.

Front desk staff were able to book private longboat trips and great prices. Much cheaper than we have experienced in previous years without the need to barter the price.

Buffet breakfast is good.

Complimentary welcome drinks at the beach bar opposite the hotel are a thoughtful touch.

In general the hotel was clean, quiet and welcoming.

When we return to phi phi we will stay again.

Originally booked 3 nights but actually stayed 5. The hotel is in a great location, just off the beach and a short stroll to the pier and pretty much everything!

Our room was comfortable and the balcony was a nice touch for the rainy mornings allowing us to o do so planning in an outdoor setting.

The staff were lovely and the breakfast selection was great. Probably the best omelette on my travels and definitely the best streaky bacon, really crispy, the way I like it! The sponge cake was also delicious, so light and moist. I liked the vanilla and coffee, my husband preferred the chocolate.

My only minor issue was on checkout when they checked our room a small towel was apparently missing. Not to be funny but not sure why I would want to take a small towel. We sent them away to check as we did not have our room serviced every day and on leaving to catch the boat they said housekeeping had not come back so it's ok. Just not the best last impression especially after such a great stay.

Overall good hotel for the price. Would definitely stay again, I might just count the towels everyday! 🤣

The garden rooms face the pool. We had a first floor room facing the pool. There was no noise. I would think there would be more noise not facing the pool as you’re closer to the party scene.
