“Piece of a real paradise”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

We spent in Thailand 3 weeks and Long Beach was definitely our best stay. Paradise Resort was fine but I would recommend to pay more than standard room as we did. The beach is just perfect - not crowded as on Phuket, absolutely great sea, very quiet location easily accessable from the Rassada Pier - 5 min by long tail boat or 10 min by walk - very easy especially during the low tide in the evening. The staff in the hotel was helpful and organised everything we needed.
Long Beach is not for the turists looking for a nightlife but for those who preffer relaxing vacation. On the other hand the city is just a few minutes away...

In spite of 2 cockroaches we killed in our bathroom:-) we can only recommend this location. Such small "animal" is always something you have to take as a fact in destinations like Thailand.

Room Tip: Don´t buy the basic or standard rooms. It is much better to pay more for higher level.

Best location on ,Phi Phi. The Antares was very busy as most of the guests of other resorts along the beach appeared to be eating here, however service was excellent, a young man Aum, in particular could not be faulted. We never had a meal mix up or an excessive wait for food. We often booked our evening table around 5.30 pm for 6.30 to ensure a front row beachside table with no problems. Twice we managed to stuff up our safe within hours of being there and both instances were responded to promptly. We paid $100 a night for a seaview bungalow and it was well worth it. I would not hesitate to recommend a stay at this hotel, our 6 nights there was a highlight of our trip. There are no money changing facilities on Long Beach so take plenty and bring some water as the small shop is quite expensive compared to Tonsai prices.

Room Tip: Book a seaview bungalow

Good Location on Long Beach, which is indeed a stunning beach.
If you have an extra budget, take the bungalow with a sea view, as those ones are new - otherwise, just go for another hotel as rates for the basic bungalow are really overprices.
Here is a summary of the few issues we had:
- Staff: unfriendly, but we did not really care
- Room: We had the Q7 bungalow. Terrible.
Not even clean: sheets were stained and walls with some disgusting stains as well.
A/C does not properly work. I makes a huge noise and stopped at night we did not know why.
- Bathroom: Terrible. Flush was not working, shower was so disgusting that you felt even more dirty after having taken a shower.
- Facilities: there is a restaurant at the hotel which is good. However, it closes at 10pm; so do not even think having late drinks and then come back to eat. Breakfast is OK.
Good thing is the massage area, next to the reception. We had a very good aloe vera massage, much needed after being sunburnt.
- Beach: stunning, clear water, white sands. However, if you want a chair on the beach (free), go early around 9 am otherwise they will be all taken by people that are not event customers from the hotel, as no one is cheking. We had to go to another place further down the beach and pay 100B for 2 chairs.
- Transport: you will have to take a boat to go to the hotel. It is 100B per personn on daytime; 150 at night. Put some flip-flop as you will have to put your feet on the water.
Transportation to go back to the main pier is free when you check out (boat every hour).

Overall, I would not recommend this hotel. I am still trying to understand how it can be in the top 10 of Phi Phi hotels on Tripadvisor.
If you are on a small budget, have a look at Viking Hotel, and if you have some extra, either take the sea view bungalows or go to Phi Phi Beach resort, which is also on Long Beach.

Room Tip: Sea View Bungalow

First impressions were very good. The room was lovely and spacious and clean, set back on a beautiful beach. However with closer inspection we could not sit on the balcony because it was alive with hundreds of ants.we also discovered half way in the first night that we had two ghekkos as house pests. These kept us awake and when we mentioned it to the reception she said she could do nothing about it and if we didn't like then we could leave but makes sure it's before 11am. The food was good here however the staff weren't. Wouldn't stay here again if you paid me too as felt it Was very bad value for money

I have been to Koh Phi Phi twice and my second experience on Long Beach at Paradise Pearl Bungalows was much better than the first. Long beach is quiet and relaxing and far from the feel of the party scene in town. The rooms here are nice and we really enjoyed our stay. The included breakfast is great but otherwise the restaurant service was just okay. Worth the stay and the money!

We stayed 2 nights in Bungalow P8. This is a charming beach hotel, and it's right on Long Beach. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. We had a few issues though:

First, they charged far too much for a private boat excursion. When we have gone to Phi Phi in the past, we have paid about 5,000 THB for an all day boat that took us around to snorkeling and beach spots. This hotel charged double that (10,000 THB). Plus, the boat they set us up with was terrible. The driver was hungover, and fell asleep when we were at Maya Bay...we had to swim out to the boat to wake him up. I'm not kidding. Plus, he was so hungover, he could hardly communicate...my wife is Thai and she still couldn't make him understand what she was saying. Also, he drove the boat like a maniac, bouncing us all over. We kept asking him to slow down, but he wouldn't. We told the hotel, but they seemed unconcerned and made it sound like it wasn't any of their business what the guy did. For the price of our room and the tour, they SHOULD have cared.

Also, when we booked the room, we were guaranteed a beachside bungalow. However, after a few days we were sent word that the one we were guaranteed was already booked, and that our bungalow was actually going to be in the back of the resort. Quite a difference, as you can imagine. While a short walk, the difference between a beachside bungalow and a backside bungalow is immense, though they charged us the same amount, which seems rather ridiculous. We could not see the water from our room, and could only see it after a short hike. Why get a beach bungalow that is not on the beach?

Finally, the breakfast was terrible. I would've rather ordered from a menu. The food was cold and miserable. Disappointing.

That said, the rooms are nice and the location of the resort is very good. We enjoyed a great dinner on the beach, and the water is spectacular.

Room Tip: We were in bungalow P8, in the back of the complex...no point in getting a beach bungalow that is no...

You need to take a boat to get to this hotel, which some may find inconvenient. However, we found it perfect. The main town is loud and busy late into the night, so staying a short (less than 5 minutes) boat trip away was perfect for us because it feels secluded and private. The hotel is lovely. The hotel staff could be more friendly, and could be a bit better trained in good customer service. But the facilities are great. Have a massage, the Thai massage ladies are excellent. The restaurant is lovely, and well priced. The beach is clean and private, and there is a nice snorkelling spot just a few metres swim from the hotel beach. We booked a beach front bungalow, number A1, and felt that it was slightly below what we expected for the price. It was not all that luxurious, and I saw some of the other bungalows which looked exactly the same, just slightly smaller. But that said, it was nice to be able to open the front door and walk directly on to the beach, with out own deck chairs and table.

Room Tip: Room A1 is not as nice as the other beachfront bunglaows which have been rebuilt recently.
