I was very pleased with my choice to stay at the Paradise Pearl Resort. I couldnt decide between something closer to the main town or something more remote (usually prefer being in the center of things). I must be getting old because Long Beach was perfect....a few places to have drinks at night; while Tonsai Bay was waaaayyyy too much for me! Long Beach is amazing - not too crowded and fantastic views of Koh Phi Phi Leh. Our room - Q2 (2nd story room) was nice. Bathroom was a little dated and beds were overly firm (as was typical in every hotel I stayed at in Thailand), but there was a huge balcony with a nice table and views of the ocean. I found the staff to be very friendly. They helped organize a private longtail trip to Koh Phi Phi Leh (an hour before we wanted to leave even). Restaurant was very good (lunch and dinner) and the drinks bar made fantastic smoothies and daquiris! Breakfast was just okay....though hard to complain when you are sitting along the beach with such perfect views! You have to pay for wireless and only one of us was able to log on at a time (we would just buy for an hour at a time). I booked through Agoda and had sent a request for pick up at Rassada Pier. No response, but there was someone waiting when our ferry arrived (maybe they just have a guy waiting when every ferry arrives? No idea, but it was free). The day trip to Maya Bay was fantastic. Yes, its crowded, but sooo pretty. We hiked around the interior of Koh Phi Phi Leh and found many secluded swimming areas. One note of warning - at Maya Bay there is a very nice little beach not too far away that looks easy to get to and you wonder why it is completely empty (especially considering the hundreds of people on Maya Bay beach). It is easy to get to as the bay is so shallow you can walk there, but the bay is full of very sharp corals, sea cucumbers & thousands of microscopic jellyfish surrounding that little beach!! They just stung a little bit...not too bad...but they get pretty thick as you get closer to the beach. Clearly we really wanted a break from the crowds becasue we sucked it up and made it through the jellyfish! Overall, I found Long Beach the preferred location on Koh Phi Phi Don and the Paradise Pearl was definitely my favorite hotel on the beach.
