Phuttachot Resort Phi Phi2.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
DO NOT STAY HERE !!! I cannot stress this point enough and you can take my word for it that absolutely anywhere on phi phi island would be better to stay than here. If I could give this "resort" a -1 star rating I would as that would be most fitting for this absolute sh**tehole. Me and my best friend arrived at the Phuttachot "Resort" having travelled the short ferry ride from Phuket to the stunning island of Koh Phi Phi Don. It was a 15 minute walk from the main pier to what I will now refer to as just 'Phuttachot' as the resort part of the title is unfitting. On the walk there we passed the island sewage waste tanks and what looked like faecal matter overflowing from drains running down the street the stench was vomit inducing. We were located just on the outskirts of the main town centre of Phi Phi . From outward appearance the place looked run down and overgrown with vegetation. We entered the reception which was more like a small shack which was filthy and very disorganised. The owner/receptionist was unsure who we were when we arrived and it took him several minutes to find our booking despite the fact that we were almost certain we were the only guests staying at Phuttachot on these dates. He then proceeded to tell us that he needed to go and "check the room" and disappeared carrying a large stick with a pointed end. When he returned after 10 minutes looking a bit sheepish he told us "the room is ok now". Having now read previous reviews I suspect there may have been guests of another species staying in our room before we were given the ok to enter. He handed us a dirty old key and we went to our room. 5 MINUTES was the total duration of our stay in this room. The room was : -dirty and poorly maintained, dusty and dated -the beds resembled camp beds and sheets were old with weird stains on them -the mirror in the bathroom was dirty and completed cracked -the bathroom window was held shut by toilet paper that had been stuffed around it - the bathroom door was broken -the lock on the room door didn't work -various insects on the floors and on the beds The decision to leave and find other accommodation was made within 30 seconds . We had to trudge about the island for several hours looking for other accommodation which was difficult as most hostels had already filled up for that evening. I'm very aware that this is Thailand and that accommodation is often a hit or miss but my friend and I have had our fair share of very basic hostel accommodation around the world and in Thailand itself and still I have never experienced any place quite as awful as this. We felt unsafe to even stay here for the night the location was secluded and the road to here was pitch black. The accommodation itself was not lit at night and it was very dark. When we eventually found alternative accommodation we returned for the "great escape" to grab our backpacks and get the hell out of there. The owner/receptionist was sitting outside our room with 5 of his friends drinking who had all evidently had a bit too much and they stared at us as we returned to our room and started laughing amongst themselves. This made us feel very uneasy being two young women in our 20's we could not have got out of there quick enough. After a brief encounter with a bat and lizard trying to find an alternative exit to avoid going past the gang of men again we fled to our new hotel. To summarise this place should be shut down it was an abomination ,there is more wildlife in the rooms than in a zoo and it is not safe for young travellers to stay here. To finish with a quote from one of our male friends who we tried to take on a tour to prove how truly awful this place was. "I don't like haunted houses they scare me" ~ step hen 2017
Had to bring my girlfriend to the hospital after 1 day in this room, she got an alergic reaction to all the bugbites. Doors dont close fully, everywhere buggs and salamanders in the room. This place is a mess.
Worst place I have ever stayed in would prefer to stay in a tent next time! There's more wildlife in the room than there is in a zoo😳bed was like laying on a concrete slab inside a room that's the heat off a sauna plus have to walk up mosquito lane to get to the place but other than that she's not bad 👍🏻
this place is away from all the loud music. i slept fairly well but there was allot of bugs. the staff was somewhat helpful. it isnt the worst place but its far from being the best. You smell the sewage treatment center on the way but you cant smell it once you are there.
This hotel was the worst experience in my life. Luckily we get our money back and found another, better hotel at the same price. There was holes in the floor, air condition didn't work. Dont ever, ever go there!
This place was very clean and the staff were extremely friendly. It has amazing air con & fan that works. Great value, best place to stay in Phi Phi as I had stayed at a few other hotels/hostels that were a disaster. Also private balcony
This place was filled with bugs: ants, geckos, bedbugs and some wood eating crawlies that had destroyes the wooden mirror and the cabin. Hard and dirty beds, dirty bathroom and overprized. We left after one night. You can find places that are cheaper, cleanier, with better location and don't leave your legs filled with bug bites.
A bad hotel. For the same price, book a bungalo. The furniture is old, mirror is so old that the reflecting surface has melted off, bathroom windows are stuffed with toilet paper, the doors lock but are in such a poor condition that they can be broken down with just one hit. Bed was rock hard. It has a fridge, a good AC but no safe. There is a balcony but it has a view on the next house. The hotel is surrounded by trash. It is located off the main streets (walking home in the dark was a bit scary) which meant that it was quiet during the night. Staff was nice. I guess it is OK if you just need to sleep off your drunken nights and just have a place where to keep your suitcases (DON'T LEAVE YOUR VALUABLES THERE) but other than that, pick another hotel. Also, you can book a bungalo for a better price for just storing your things.
this hotel is in a perfect location, right by everything that may be an attraction to you but also very quiet. Comfy huge beds and perfectly working air con made our nights sleep amazing! the wifi works well, it's always very clean. however the tv didn't work and it says on agoda you get a free shuttle to the pier and back but we didn't get any and when asked the man replied only 1 person today. very pleasant staff however and always smiling. you get what you paid for!
The place itself was maybe nice many years ago but..... Ok it was in a quite area but the shower was not a shower no water and if you was lucky to get out some water was it cold or hot. The place is ok for a short stop.
