Old grimey sheets and towels. Food was very bad and expensive

Booked two rooms at this property: a cliff villa and a beachfront bamboo hut. The villa was huge, large bed and very comfortable, except for the steep hill. Although they have cart service to drive guests to their villa. Our villa was set back from the beach and has more of a forest view with part ocean view. The bamboo hit was amazing and highly recommended. Cute and right off the beach. However, due to bamboo structure, its doesn't retain the ac very well. The bed in the bamboo hut was a little old and on the small side, but then again you will choose that for the cozy and nostalgic reason. Hotel sits on Rantee beach, which felt like a private beach most of the time. Staff and manager were super nice people and we highly recommend this place. They provide shuttle service from hotel on Tonsai pier, as well day trips. What's unknown is that you can find a shuttle right from Krabi to this beach without having to hustle through Phi Phi town. Just contact the hotel manager for details. This hotel is just the right balance for rustic and modern convenience.

The hotel seems unfinished. It is very remote, you can only get to it and leave by boat. You can't walk to the city or to other hotels. When there is high tide the whole beach disappears. The rooms have no chairs, no tables, no TV. The "amenities" are a single restaurant, a poorly stocked minimart, masks and snorkels, two kayaks for rent, and whatever books people have left there. There is also a very poor Wifi, both the speed and signal strength are mediocre at best. So if you don't want to get in the water, and there's high tide, there is really nothing to do. You can eat or drink, read a book, or pay a lot of money to go to the city, but there's no TV, no board games, no pool, no gym, nothing really to do. I have to say that the staff was amazing. Every single person there was great, specially the younger employees that did everything they could to make our stay as good as possible. I feel like this will be a great place in about a year, but right now it just feels empty and unfinished.

Do not get crammed in with the rest of the tourist and budget travelers on the main area of Tonsai. Just hop on a longtail and quickly find yourself in a secluded area perfectly carved out for your stay. We went on our Honeymoon and everything was as pictured. Food was great! Was smart and only ate local cuisine. I was worried about the limited food choices being a distance from the shops and restaurants of Tonsai.. well only one hotel restaurant, but was amazed with each plate and the view. Great view from the room and the restaurant!

We stayed in this hotel for two nights in December 2016. The idea of a bangalow at the beach is great, but not so practical. The only way to get to hotel from the main pier is through water. The hotel provides a free pick-up service, which is always late (according to other hotel guests too), and it kept us waiting at the pier for over 30 minutes. If you need to go to the main pier and all the shopping/bar/restaurants in that area, you need a private taxi boat which costs 800 Bhats (about $25US) in daytime, but there is no limit when you want to get back at night; could be 5000Bhats (about $150) since you have no other choices! And be aware that the boats drop you off 40feet away from the sand and you have to walk/swim in the water - 3-4ft or deeper. Go there is you want to stay at your room, hotel restaurant, relax at the beach for all day long.

the private bungalow i stayed in, was amazing! the staff were all so friendly and helpful. food was good too. beach was raked every morning, and lovely!
