    There is no value for money at all
    The resort's location is breathtaking. The beach is clean and beautiful (though very rocky). Fantastic sunrise view. However, we did not feel that at the price we paid we received adequate value. We booked the garden cliff house and the way to it was very uncomfortable. It is located up a steep hill. The balcony should have looked out to the cove but it was not. In addition, the room was dirty, little worms on the walls, the toilet was with a remnant of shit and there was bad smell. We asked to change room and the staff offered us the bamboo room on the beach - was much better but the rooms are of a fairly low standard - reflecting a 3 star resort but not the price we paid. The food served at the restaurant was not very tasty (but not so bad) and it was also expensive in relation to what we got. Breakfast is poor - no vegetables and cheese at all and for normal cappuccino they charge money. The toaster that was the most attractive thing about breakfast was rusty and wrinkled. The omelette was good. The resort is isolated from the center and therefore you will depend on the resort's boats that depart at very specific hours and at a frequency that is not satisfactory to our opinion. You will pay 200 baht per person for a ride to the main port and if you dont catch the last ride back to the resort you will pay much more. Return to the resort is not guaranteed due to the wind and waves. Not sure if prices have jump b ecause of the new year - but it was just overpriced!

    Exceptional 10.0
    A Great 'Exprience'
    Reading other peoples reviews of this hotel made me nervous, but I really needn't have been. Upon arriving on the island from the speedboat, there was someone waiting for us on the pier with the sign for the cove (A professionally produced one. Please don't be persuaded by one of the scammers on the pier) The longtail boat took us round for free (there is no cost for the longtail transfer at check in and check out) Arriving at the hotel, there were people to meet us and help with the bags, and then a welcome drink and check in. All a very simple and friendly process. We had a beachfront bamboo hut (number B03), and it was very clean (as clean as a bamboo hut can be), and no bugs at all, as other reviewers have said. The beachfront position was fantastic, however, it can be quite noisy at night in these with the longtail boats passing by. The bed was firm but comfortable enough, and actually helped fix my back after a bed that was too soft for the previous few nights. The food at the hotel was fantastic. We couldnt fault it, as long as you stuck to the local Thai dishes. The drinks were pretty good too, and not overly expensive. Certainly less than expected from the reviews. 60 Baht for a beer and 200 baht for a cocktail. The hotel had that personal touch where the people there actually cared about you enjoying that, and I really liked that even after spending the previous few nights in a suite in a 5 star hotel.

    Not so great stay at the Cove
    I wouldn’t stay here again. The room itself was good. Doesn’t seem like it has really been kept up to date as there were lighting fixtures broken and burnt out, also had a broken shower head. At the time of booking I didn’t realize it was only accessible by boat, the location is really far from everything. The staff weren’t helpful and the food at the restaurant is overpriced and average.

    Fair 4.0
    Definitely not worth it
    Hotel check in procedure says to go to Klong Jilard pier in Krabi, we were in Ao Nang. We took a grab to the pier (650 THB) then spend another 900 THB to get ferry tickets only to find out there was a ferry from Ao Nang. The check in instructions didn’t say we were taking the ferry it just said to go to that pier. Upon arrival to Phi Phi we took a long tail boat to hotel, which broke down for 15 minutes. We kinda got running but took us 45 mins to get there due to the engine problems. The hotel was very underwhelming. We tried to inform who I am guessing is the owner about the communication issues with how to get there but he seemed to care less. The property it’s self was ok, only one restaurant and bar and one menu for lunch and dinner. The restaurant was dated. Our room was very disappointing. AC was weak, room was definitely not as nice as the pictures. WiFi and cell service non existent. The beach is only swimable at high tide, in AM. Few patches of sand, a lot of dead coral and more sea urchins than I’ve ever seen. There are free kayaks so that was nice. Also it is not an 18 minute walk to Tonsai pier as it says, it’s a 30 minute boat ride which cost 200 THB per person each way. When we expressed our being unhappy to the owner/manager he didn’t seem to care or even ask why. We checked out a day early and headed to Phuket because we were so unhappy. For about the same price we got a beach front pool access room right on Surin beach.

    Very good 8.0
    Beautiful and authentic (but transport expensive)
    A wonderful, beautiful and secluded location that we would definitely recommend. The only issue with the hotel, is that there are only two free shuttles into the main area of Phi Phi per day. If you want to stay out in the main area past 4pm it will cost you 800THB EACH way. On our first day we were totally unaware of this and had to pay almost 3000THB in total purely for transportation to and from the hotel (almost £75)
