Phi Phi Banana Resort
Reviewed 5 May 2013

We booked this hotel with trepidation after reading the other reviews on TripAdvisor but were plesently surprised once we arrived! The place is a 10 minute walk from the beach, and tucked away in the jungle. The rooms are simple, stand alone bamboo huts that are not flash, but clean and tidy. The hotel has a very cheap and tasty resturant with free breakfasts, and a pool and poolside bar. The rooms are a steep, yet quick, treck up a hillside into the jungle. Staff happily took our bags on arrivial and ran ahead with them.

What stood out for us the most were the friendly staff. The place is family owned and operated. One afternoon we were having a few drinks by the pool and got talking to the staff. After a few drinks with them, one of the younger staff members offered to take us out to some local clubs on the beach that night. We went out with him, and had a great time!
We planned to only stay 1 night at Banana Resort but ended up staying on for three and I cannot wait to return.

This place is the biggest dive I've ever saw.first off you have to walk 15 mins from the pier just to get there up 2 big HILLS and they do not tell you that on booking.com. Finally brought to our room again up another 50 steps stepped into what I could only describe as a smelly Thai prison cell the bed had stains on it the room was tiny could hardly move in it, the bathroom was disgusting it had a big hole in the wall and Mosquitos and cockroaches were buzzing around the bathroom.asked for a refund and they said no way and there's no point in arguing with Thai people because they will just pretend they can't understand you.got our bags and just left.

We booked this on line and it looked quite nice. Well, photos can be very deceptive indeed. The room was sooooo basic it was unbelievable. No bedside table, no shelf or anything. Air conditioning unit leaked and flooded the floor and got the bed soaked. As for the bathroom!!! I had to share it with cockroaches, mosquito’s, slugs, lizards. Again no shelf or anything, but in fairness, you wouldn't leave a toothbrush lying around in there. In all honesty, this is the worst place I have ever stayed in my entire life. It's quite a way out of the town - UP HILL!!! - Absolute nightmare. Please please, do yourself a favour and find somewhere else. This place is minging!!!
