Among all the hotels on Phi Phi island, this one is lcoated at the best area. Being in the central downtown, Palm Tree is surrounded by numerous shops, restaurants, pubs, diving agencies, even an open market where you can buy raw fresh fruits and sea foods, unless you fancy to organize a bbq party by yourself. It is noisy outside, but very quiet inside. Once you walk the stone lane and enter the lobby, the noise is shielded. You can enjoy a nice sleep, meanwhile DJs of nearby pubs are thundering.
Another virtue--it is very close to two beaches. Central Phi Phi is narrow, and two beaches facing north and south make Phi Phi centre like a belt, and Palm Tree is like a hole on belt. You can reach any one of them in 10 min walk.
The staff are nice and helpful. I need to point two persons. One is a burly and kind-looking bell boy, who always meets tourists at the pier and guide them to the hotel. He never hesitates to carry your bags, no matter how big, like ours. The other is the lady cook at kitchen. She usually do the fried eggs and omelets during breakfast. We bought a pineapple at Phuket and brought it all the way to Phi Phi. I went to kitchen one night and asked her a favor to cut it. She dropped her work immediately and took over it. I told her it was good enought by just cutting it into big pieces like people doing a watermelon, but she peeled it, removed all the black remainings of its skin, and finally cut it into slices, all with her big knife, and smile.
Our room is at second floor. It is nice. TV has a good range of channels. I didn't miss the sensational and emotional 4:4 game between Newcastle and Arsenal. How lucky! but I should have watched it at nearby pub with some pints. How unlucky!
One thing: the shower spray-head can't be set on the wall. It's always hanging-down. I supposed to tell it at reception during check out but I forgot. Another thing I forgot is my room number.
In general, highly recommended!
