“Expensive but nice enough”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

The thing about Phi Phi is that even the more expensive places seem to be run down. This was by far the nicest place we stayed out of 4 in Phi Phi but to be honest it just wasn't worth the money in my opinion. It was nearly 100$ and for the amount of time you spend in the hotel, I preferred to spend 30$ and have a clean bed in a small room somewhere.
If you were traveling with kids then it would be a good place to stay because there is a small pool and you might end up spending more time at the hotel but if you are on Phi Phi to explore than don't bother spending more money than necessary for a place to sleep because all of them are over priced and get away with it. One thing to note, breakfast is TERRIBLE, not just bad!

Some have complained about service in this hotel but I did'nt find any problems at all. Rooms were quite big and clean, but yes, the bathrooms were little less tidy and there was some smell from the sewer after shower. Noise from the bars at night was not too bad, you could still sleep, and thats a plus in PhiPhi island:)

Reviewed 5 June 2012

Me and my bf were looking for a budget place on Koh Phi Phi and checked several accommodations for not more than 800 Baht for a doubleroom (that seems to be the price for which you can get an average aircon room in off season on phi phi island). The guest houses we checked were really disappointing (tiny rooms, really bad bathrooms, bad smelling rooms,...), so I ended up checking the Chao Koh Phi Phi lodge and was really surprised. Although the regular price for a deluxe fan room was 1.000 Baht, they offered me 800 Baht as a special off season rate. Amerikan Breakfast Buffet inkluded! As it wasn't so hot and the building was very good isolated, a fan room was totally enough for the time we were there. The room was very nice and spacious, had a good smell and was very clean. The furniture was a bit old, but still a lot better than in the other guest houses I checked. We felt very comfortable there and all people there (especially the room cleaning ladies) were really friendly. Furthermore we could use the pool, which was also nice. So really good value compared to other places with the same price on phi phi island. Ps: The breakfast was also good and fresh, but a little bit monotonous (at least they could change the type of fruits every day).

Koh Phi Phi lodge was very nice, not a bad word to say, rooms were clean, had a pool and was right next to the beach and the restaurant food was very nice. Phi Phi has no roads, an amazing place, a must see destination. This hotel is a 2minute walk from the jetty, not far, saying that you can walk from one side to the other in 5minutes.

The staff is horrible welcoming you talking on the cell phone and ignoring you, The rooms are terrible with a very very bad smell in the bathroom, and they're dirty. The water in the swimming pool was nothing but clear, I guess they don't know that the water must be purged.. The area, Tonsai bay, is a king of tropical disneyland, very noisy and crowdy...

We loved the location, about a five minute walk from the beach. The area was quiet at night and we did not get disturbed whilst staying here for five nights. The outdoor area is very pretty, lovely looking pool.
The rooms are fine, yes the rooms need a bit of TLC etc but at the end of the day you are not in your rooms for long periods of time. I have stayed at five star hotels and you can still pick fault with them!!!
We were happy with the room but would definately up grade to aircon if I stayed again. Also there was no fridge.

Rooms was cleaned daily, clean towles/beds made. We have breakfast everyday at the htoel and it was lush. Loads of choice.

Would recommend this to anyone, ignore the negative comments and go enjoy the island.
We booked prior to arriving through booking . com . There are definately worst places to stay

Room Tip: go for aircon
