Budget Phi Phi resort reviews
There are many Phi Phi resort reviews focused on mid-range and budget travellers. None of these mid-range and budget beachfront resorts are large and often have simple or family run managements so to expect full mainland or Bangkok style service is unrealistic. What you will get is an informal easy going island style of accommodation, a style typical of the islands in Thailand. Some travellers find this the ultimate experience, see Phi Phi Relax Beach Resort. Some find this stressful so it is important to check out your reviews in advance.
There is a very fine line between the 'island laid back style' and poor service. There are no roads and everything needs to be physically carried into the resorts. On top of this, it is primarily an outdoor lifestyle so it is hot both for guests and staff. This creates a slow pace for every aspect on the island. Slow is never good if you are running for a ferry, a tour or just itching to get something done so you can get on enjoying yourself. The trick here is to give yourself time to get things done. All these factors are evident in the variety or reviews and scores on phi-phi.com and Agoda and Tripsadvisor.
At the very simple end of budget accommodation there are backpacker resorts like Phi Phi Rimlay Resort. These and many ">cheap guesthouses are not on resort comparison websites, depend on walk in off the ferry customers and alter their prices depending on the demand. This means that if the island is full they will put the prices up to way beyond a better quality resort. This leads to many poor reviews. This however can be sidestepped if customers book in advance of their arrival.
