P. P. Palm Tree Resort
20 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Great hotel in great location on fantastic island
"We travelled over a great deal of Thailand during our three week holiday and Ko Phi Phi was our favourite location with this great hotel providing the perfect base for a wonderful stay. Spacious and comfortable, the room included a small balcony overlooking the sun-drenched pool area. This hotel benefitted from being right in the middle of all the bars, restaurants and shops that Ko Phi Phi has to offer and was just a short walk to the beach. Despite this central location, it still felt lovely and quiet throughout our stay. Highly recommended."

no frills hotel in the village centre
"A quality 3* hotel, the room, breakfast and the service were good (not excellent though), located in the centre of the village, hence the great choice of restaurants"

"The hotel was in a perfect location- close to the beach and all the action but quiet enough to back and unwind after a long day or night. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were decently sized, with a spacious bathroom and enough living space to feel comfortable. Definately recommend this hotel to anyone who doesnt want to stay in a guest house, likes a little comfort and doesnt mind paying a tiny bit extra for it."

Great Location on Koh Phi Phi
"Very clean on arrival and rooms are not too small as others have posted. I think the pool access rooms are a little smaller than the ones on the other floors because they have a bigger balcony. The reception desk is accommodating, but they do not put up with foolishness. The breakfast buffet is ok, but there is a lady there making pretty good omelets. I really liked the location. The room is very clean on arrival, but they just do an ok job when cleaning the room during your stay. I would also like to suggest the Lemongrass restaurant. Great Thai food at a good price! We also used Adventure Tours to go on a snorkeling trip. They are very eco friendly and you go snorkeling on a long tail boat. The only negative I have is that they do not have any internet access at the hotel. Big plus is that it is really quiet and laid back in the middle of Koh Phi Phi. It is no more than a 4-5 minute walk to either side of the island. Next time on Phi Phi, I will stay here again because for the price, you cannot beat it. If you are a big partier and plan on partying in your room. Do not choose this place, again.. they do not put up with foolishness and will call the police. They tell you this at check in. There are plenty of places to have a good time, but just be done before you come back to the hotel."

Phi Phi Palmtree was a Fantastic Hotel to Top off a Great Trip
"My brother & I (both mid-20s) stayed at the Phi Phi Palmtree for only 2 nites (sadly- not long enough!) and were both quite pleased with our choice. The Palmtree is central to everything, right next to a friendly tour office that can book your snorkel/diving trips as well as bus & ferry tickets. The pool area is really beautiful and also quite relaxing- was never overcrowded. The front desk was super friendly and accommodating- welcome drink upon arrival. Our rooms had a liltle balcony facing the pool so you could sit in the shade and read. Phi Phi is a really fun resort island where you can be as active or as chill as you want. They do have breakfast buffet but unfortunately we slept through it both mornings! Palmtree fit the bill perfectly."

Mini boutique packed in the middle of everything
"I stayed at the Phi Phi Palm tree last week with a friend and other than a slight hiccup where the front desk took more than 30mins to check us in - which was pretty fustrating after a long ferry journey - there's nothing else to fault about this small hotel. I would think that having 2 personnel at the front desk instead of one would definitely improve this process. In addition, the room wasnt clean up probably and the room rates are rather expensive. Other than that, the hotel is located in an excellent location - right in the middle of town and accessible to all the resturants, shopping and ferry terminal. The room is pretty small though (we stayed in a twin beds room) so if spacious room is the thing for you, you might want to consider upgrading to a bigger room. Check out the beach bars at night, especially the stones bar where there are heaps of fire show. My friend had a go on one of the fire skipping rope and got his hair burnt lol. We went to Maya bay too and even though it was mid afternoon, it was packed with lotsa tourists and long tail boat, which kind of spoil the beauty of this tiny bay made famous by the movie, "The Beach.'"

Private but in the middle of everything
"My husband and I stayed at the Palm Tree for 2 nights at the end of October and will definitley be going back. We chose the hotel due to it's close proximity to the beach, ferry, bars and restaurants. It was all of this and more. You simply stepped out and had a miriad of options at your feet yet at night we could not hear any of it. The room was very tastefully decorated and overlooked the pool and the bathroom was a generous size and very modern. It was a short walk to the beach which you could take the pool towels to, however it was too hot on one of the days so we chose to retreat to the hotel pool. Breakfast was simple. If you like hot dishes and eggs you are fine but other than that there was toast, one cereal, some fruit and juice but sufficient. No real complaints though a lift would have been nice after a late night or climbing to the lookout but there is only a few floors. Was glad we didnt' get a pool access room as they definitely lacked privacy so go for the rooms with a balcony."

Perfect place to stay
"My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Phi Phi Palmtree. We kind of prefer being close to the action when we travel (as opposed to being isolated), so the location in the middle of Tonsai Village was ideal for us. But even though it was in the middle of town, we didn't have any issues with noise or anything...the hotel was set back from the street enough that it was a nice oasis from the hustle and bustle. The beach (Dalum) was just a short walk away (maybe 5 minutes?). The hotel's infinity pool was very nice, although there weren't too many lounge chairs available around it. We're not the lay-around-the-pool type anyway, so it didn't bother us too much. Our room was very clean and nicely decorated, and we had a lovely balcony overlooking the pool area. The hotel didn't have wireless or any computers available to use, but there was an internet cafe right at the entrance of the hotel which was very cheap. If we ever find ourselves back in Phi Phi, we would definitely stay at the Palmtree again."

"Out of everywhere we stayed in Thailand, Phi Phi was the only place we hadn't booked in advance (despite this being my second time to Phi Phi). I was therefore panicking the entire boat journey to the island! At first we were a little aprehensive about staying in the main town, however, we luckily came across Palmtree Resort. Although the main town of Tonsai is bustling with travellers and tourists, due to the fact the resort encapsulates a lovely pool area and shields the sometimes busy streets, you wouldn't know it. The rooms were very clean and nicely decorated with a touch of Thai class. Our room had swimming pool access which i would definitely recommend. The only negative point i would mention is the fact there are only 8 sunbeds. The plus side is the beach is only a 5 min walk away. If you are going to stay in Tonsai village - this is the place to be."

Best place to stay on the island!
"We stayed at Phi Phi Palm Tree for 1 night and we found it to be the perfect place to stay in the main village on Phi Phi Don. The hotel overlooks the inner courtyard with a nice and refreshing pool area. It's close to the boat dock and the hotel did pick us up there, which was great since they also handled our luggage. And the hotel is supringly quiet given that it's in the main village. As for Phi Phi, here are my recommendations: - Phi Phi town itself is not the nicest and full of backpackers! But the boat excursions especially to Maya Beach are a must! It's truly beautiful there even though it's jam packed with tourists. - We ate at Ciao Bella and the food was good as was the atmosphere and setting (right on the beach front). - We did a 4 hour morning snorkeling tour with The Adventure Club and it was fun and... quite the adventure, actually! At times the waves were pretty strong. We saw some cool fish and turtles."

Beautiful hotel, good location
"Beautiful hotel, very modern and nicely decorated rooms. I chose a room with direct pool access, which allowed me to walk from the room directly to a small swimming pool at the center of the complex. The resort has a wonderful tropical feeling and I would definitely stay here again. After visiting other island destinations, I was a bit surprised that this resort was a bit smaller than I expected. This is mostly due to the fact that Phi Phi is actually quite a small island with limited space. The hotel is located just a few minute walk from the pier where the ferry arrives and departs."

Nice rooms, hotel centrally located.
"You are smack dab in the middle of everything! Easy to get to everywhere. We were not greeted at the pier so we had to find the hotel by ourselves. You walk off the pier, head right, walk until you see phi phi scuba divers, make a left, walk straight until the end, slightly to your righthand side (about 5 minutes). The place is surprisingly quiet despite it central location. The rooms are new and nicely decorated. The breakfast was mediocre and the egg cook was hardly present if you go eat really early. The pool was small and barely staffed at the walk-up bar area. The front desk people were very helpful and friendly. Well worth the pricetag, recommend booking directly on their website."
