We spent 7 nights in this resort and can recommend it on Koh Phi Phi. It situated 10 - 15 minutes walk from Tonsai pier. If buckets of vodka and permanent disco time are not your thing, then the distance to the village center will please you. The beach is right in front of the breakfast area - we have not seen any other resort with this advantage so near Tonsai village.
Our room was in the new wing, clean, spacious and nicely decorated. Perhaps the price does not indicate a "backpacker's" resort, but we wanted some comfort and it stays absolutely correct compared to anything in Europe. Some guests complained about mosquitos in their rooms, but they seemed to have stayed in the older part of the resort - and have probably not always closed their windows at all times.
Some little room for improvement in the room would be to install some more options to hang up your clothes, but that's rather a detail.
Breakfast is quite simple, but you get fruit, thai noodles, rice, bread - enough to start the day. You'll be eating anyway soon - the food is omnipresent on Phi Phi and very cheap.
When you come in to Tonsai by ferry from Phuket, watch out for Andaman staff who will take care of your luggage to the resort.
There are safe deposit boxes, but only in the reception hall - they cost 20 THB each time you open (automatic locking system). In 7 days we had to open 2 times.
Note: Wifi is for free.
Globally and from an eco (and diver's) point of view, hotel staff should be instructed to not let plastic bottles and other rubbish accumulate (too much) in the very nearby area around the beach.
There is a dive center connected to the resort: Harlequin scuba. The have a small boat that took us out to the dive sites in no time - with lunch on a beach: fantastic. When they do not get out with their small boat they get on one of the bigger boats of other dive centers which was not a problem. We can really recommend diving on Koh Phi Phi and also to do it with Harlequin scuba. Note that near Tonsai bay, Harlequin scuba is one of the few dive centers connected directly to a resort with the possibility to start right off the beach after breakfast. No walking needed with your equipment at 35 °C !
