This was such a great place. We arrived on Phi Phi with nothing booked but a vague idea of area we wanted to stay. We passed JJ's and hubby decided to have a peek. He came back impressed. We looked at another place ad then came back. Good decision! The girl on reception was so kind and helpful, gave us map and advice straight away. We got a large room for 800 bhat.
Great value for the island. The room and bed were huge! Nice new large TV with cable, clean and decent bathroom, air-con, 2 free bottles of water. Nice balcony area with seats. Yes there are cheaper rooms to be found on the island but I doubt they would be anywhere near as nice.
We had no problems with staff, as some other reviews commented on this. Yes their English is not great - but this is Thailand! We can make a bit of effort too! All the staff we dealt with were very polite, helpful and smiley.
Ah, the waste treatment facility - somewhere that must be passed if you want to get to beach and town quickly. Can't complain really as it's a necessary evil. Smell very bad for about 1 min but the whole thing is camouflaged with tropical garden so it's not TOO bad!
Ko Phi Phi is gorgeous, stunning island but we were shocked at the amount of rubbish on the main beach. worrying sign for future. The island itself was full of youngsters on gap years so sometimes felt like we were in Benidorm or Ibiza with the amount of drunk kids out of it on whiskey buckets!
The beach on the ferry pier side of the island is quieter and very pleasant.
