It really is a beautiful resort in a gorgeous setting. You need a private resort boat or taxi to reach this part of the island. However, it is worth the hassle. One perk is that the beach is more secluded and you don't have to deal with peddlers. I went with friends (20s, 30s), but it is very much a couple or family resort. You can find the "young" crowd in the main village, however, the hotels there are a bit "backpackerish" for my taste. I should mention the spa, great service and value. And of course, the food! The continental breakfast each morning was very extensive and our dinners were always impressive. I cannot stop raving about the welcome Thai buffet that we had on our first night. Overall, it was a beautiful experience.

Major tip: the private speedboat trip to/from airport offered by the hotel might be pricey BUT it saves you a lot of time. If you are staying there for 3 days or less, I suggest you pay for it. However, if you plan to stay on Koh Phi Phi for a longer period, then you can afford to waste time with the ferry and multiple boats.
