Having filmed a tv series here 'sun sex and suspicious parents' just last July 1013 I have to say the hotel itself was very very basic and very dirty. Although our bathroom was gorgeous, the too and balcony itself was quite dirty. We had to complain twice about bedding having dried blood stains on them, of which the second change also had and large yellow stains. Although all of this is understandable considering the devastation caused by the Tu sunami 10 years ago. The Rea itself is in the midst of restoration. This hotel the film crew put us in PP Princess was unfortunately on a building/ recycling ground. Walking through the courtyard to our room, we had open septic taks and visible sewage piping everywhere. There was also a huge, mountain of recycling rubbish and of course all the building equipment etc etc. on the other side of the hotel was the beach literally on the sea front, this side I cannot fault at all. The vies from our broken balcony were amazing, you could see all the mountains from the island sun mounding Koh Phi Phi and the sea look insatiable.
The hotel staff were very pleasant and couldn't do enough to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We didn't have air con' which was awful as Thailand in the monsoon season is extremely humid. During our stay the heavens opened and monsoon rain came, when this happened the hotel grounds were transformed into sewage. The overpowering small of sewage was unbearable and if ever you watch our episode of this show you will see our reactions. I did unfortunately catch disenty from my stay here at the Pp Princess because we were forced to wade through this dirty water in flip flops and any open wounds your feet or toes might have were at high risk.
The hotel,offer some amazing day trips to Maya Beach and the Boat rides are great. DO NOT TOUCH THE MINi BAR! It's very very expensive and there is also a list of dos and donts so if you get anything on the sheets they change you, this list is extensive.
Everything at this hotel is on your doorstep so I'd say it's perfect for backpackers! Not for couples, definitely not for families or the elderly. There is a pool it's quite nice but very small but it does overlook the island and the sea.
All in all 5/10
