This was the most expensive accommodation throughout our 2 week trip & the one we were dreading the most having read the reviews.
Staff were not particularly helpful or friendly. Thankfully we didn't really need any help with anything! That said, both check in & check out were fine & there were no extra charges.
PP Charlie is linked with PP Princess (not physically, they probably have the same owner & are adjacent). The pool is over the Princess side & breakfast is also served here. Bit of a walk from the room (we were in A block) which is in turn a little way from reception.
The room was pretty basic but was clean & the a/c was effective. Bathroom was also clean & the shower was fine. Apparently the rooms in the other block (D) are newer. We requested one of these but didn't get it but we did pay the lowest peice so not surprising.
The pool was fantastic - one of the most scenic places we've been to with the backdrop. If you are after a quiet pool experience you need to go up after breakfast until about 1230. During this time the music is quiet and relaxing. After this time for the rest of the day it is very loud and more dancy - fine if that's your thing, but we decided the beach was better for us in the afternoons!
Phi Phi has changed so much since my last visit 5 years ago and the atmosphere, attitudes of locals & the island itself are now almoat unrecognisable. It's still fun and it's still beautiful, but there are far too many people descending on such a small place - it's unsustainable.
