After booking at Krabi Port with an agent we arrived with high hopes of our 'Deluxe Air-Con Room' at the Lodge @ 1600 THB Per night for 2 nights. We were greeted at the port by a mute porter who took us to the reception on the main drag of Ton Sai Bay.
We were greeted by rather kurt staff who were only interested in telling us we had to leave a 500THB deposit for our room key. We were then taken to our room and were frankly shocked at the 'deluxness' of it all. The room was damp, badly decorated, poorly furnished and the bed sheets were clean but stained.
The bathroom was frankly awful. The toilet had a constant leak that made the place smell, the water was salt water, the shower was a salty dribble - in fact you had to get out of the bath and stand on a ledge to catch the dribble. There was no shower curtain and the sink was cracked. The tinted windows gave the impression it was always dark outside and the gaps in the door and fan allowed Mosi's in all night. When we enquired about the non-working safe we were informed 'a lot are like that' and another 20BHT would buy us a locker in the open foyer at reception.
We were so happy to leave, and the one redeeming act of kindness we received was being given a rain-mac to walk to the ferry in the morning.
On the whole, it matched our experience of Phi Phi, overrun, under-managed, expensive, unfriendly and lacking personality and soul. Not a sniff of the famous Thai hospitality and we didn't look back.
