Stayed at the Outrigger Phi Phi from 1/3/14 to 15/3/14 as we wanted to experience the magnificent diving that Phi Phi has to offer. Everything about the resort is beautiful. We stayed in a deluxe garden bungalow ( highly recommended) that are situated at the back of the resort. Yes there was some walking involved to get to the pool, breakfast etc but we didn't mind this and there were always staff with buggies driving past to offer you a lift if you wanted it. The pool is amazing and very clean as is the beach. There are plenty of sun beds and umbrellas to choose from and beach towels are provided daily in your room along with free bottles of water.
After some deliberation ( as they are not the cheapest dive company) we used the dive shop on the resort to complete our Padi Open Water Certificate. Our instructor Jill was excellent and took us to some fantastic dive sites where we saw black tip reef sharks and turtles. She was extremely patient and guided us through the theory and under water skills so that we passed with flying colours.
There was a great choice of food at breakfast in a lovely setting with friendly staff. We didn't eat at the hotel in the evening, choosing to walk to the little village behind the hotel instead where there is a good choice of bars and restaurants. We would highly recommend Mint Restaurant who serve fantastic Thai food at very reasonable prices. The owners are very friendly and can't do enough for you.
We took a long tail boat to Tonsai Bay, and the boat trip was excellent. However, we would not recommend Tonsai Bay as a place to visit as it is dirty with lots of tacky shops and bars. There are lots of people around the streets and it felt a little unsafe.
We had a lovely couples massage in the Wana Spa and although it is more expensive than the shops in the village it is worth it due to the setting and the staff that see to your every need.
We didn't find any of the staff rude so cannot understand some of the reviews written. You have to remember that although they can and do speak English, they cannot always understand.
Would we go back to Outrigger Phi Phi? Definitely. However we probably would not stay as long as although there are trips there is not that much to do unless you purely want to relax. Most people that stay there do so for a few days and then move on.
