Best resort on Long Beach”

Best place to stay on Long Beach, which is the best beach to stay on Phi Phi. Relaxed, quiet, clear water & good snorkeling, great beach (not so many longtails) and far away from the destroyed Phi Phi "town". HIP Seaview has nice bungalows on stilts, with nice shaded verandas. The soundscape is superb, like being in the jungle (no disco, longtail or party noise). Very nice staff (good English). The only drawback is the stairs up from and down to the beach, but it's just good exercise.

Hip seaview resort is really good choice if you want to stay close to Phi Phi long Beach and far away from noice coming from other Side Of island. Pros : awesome view from lobby, really good breakfast, nice and helpful personel, free transport from and to pier (2 ways), free snorkelling mask, Clean and cosy bungalows. Cons : really far away from the Centre (approx 50min walk partially via Beach, partially through jungle), really long stairs from Beach; you better plan for one walk Down and return during the Day or you will get really tired reapting

Great!”

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon on Phi Phi. The location is fab, at the end of long beach but so perfect for us! Nice walk to the main part but not too long (we’re happy with the exercise). After reading reviews on breakfast I was a little worried but breakfast was lovely!! I got really sick during our stay, a cake down with a bad case of food poisoning from a place along long beach and the hotel staff arranged for a taxi long boat for me and the hospital to pick me up from the pier. Two staff members even took me and my husband to the hospital after ringing ahead and stayed with us! It wasn’t until I was told I was being kept in that they left. They really went above and beyond for us and made us feel less worried about it all. Hotel is quiet, not much going on at night but the hotel next door had entertainment and a restaurant which suites us well as it kept the hotel quiet. The steps really are not that bad AT ALL! Collection from Pier by hotel with free taxi long boat to hotel. Great place, thank you!!

Best location on Koh Phi Phi”

Very nice, helpfull, profesionall staff. Amazing view on the bay, settled on top hill on the best Long beach in Koh Phi Phi. Bungalows, accomodations, equipment is the best. Breakfast perfect with service. The stairs up and down twice a day is ok. Firstly we stayed only for 3 nights, after we extended our stay next 5 nights. Really very nice, kind and polite people there. I highly appreciate their attitude and recomended this resort to spent your holiday in a piece and relax place.

Excellent”

The hotel is very beautiful. It worth its name Seaview. The location on Long Beach is good for staying for several nights : it has OK beach with a little of snorkeling. It's quiet here except a lot of boats (like everywhere in Phi-Phi). The disadvantage is that you have to pay 100 THB (150 in the evening) or walk for 30 minutes to get to the civilization. E.g. there's no money exchange at the beach. Bank cards are rarely accepted, and with commission 5%. ‎ What concerns accommodation: The minuses are : VERY little of furniture; no place to dry cloth at all; absence of the door to the toilet. But there is a lot of advantages! Like these: * Beautiful and clean territory around the hotel; * Perfect breakfast: very big and tasty; * Very friendly and helpful stuff.

Thanks for staying open!”

We spent four nights here from six November. It’s a really nice place, fresh, lovely garden and great views. It was quiet as there isn’t much tourism on Phi Phi now. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful and really made us feel welcome. The food is good and reasonably priced. They organised 2 longtail boat excursions for us. You can use the beach next to the neighbouring resort. It’s about 40 minutes easy walk into town. If you have problems going up steps it’s probably not for you with 150 steps but we enjoyed the exercise. We would go again and thanks again to the great staff.

A quiet getaway with the best view”

Don’t let the climbing of stairs turn you off. HiP offers the best elevated view among all the available hotels. All we can ask for in a package. The place is quiet, remote, exclusive and equipped with some of the friendliest staff. We enjoyed our walk from long beach to tonsai town. Wasn’t even a hike... just a walk. Recommended unless walking up 5 floors is a major problem to you. That would mean you can’t even swim or snorkel and enjoy phi phi as a whole.

No complaints about this place. The bungalows are nice and clean and the resort is in a prime location. The view is great, and its on the nicest beach on Phi Phi. Its also located only 50 M away from Shark Point where you can easily swim to if you want to see black tip reef sharks in the early monrning (8 am) We would definitely recommend Hip Seasview

Relaxing atmosphere”

We really liked our stay on a long beach in Phi Phi Island. Hotel is in the end of the beach and has quite a few steps to the reception. Anyway, it gives you calm atmosphere, hotel was really good choise as we wanted to relax from the chaoss of touristic streets in Phi Phi. Room was simply but well designed, depending on the room you get more or less of the sea view. In our case, window view was partly to the constructions (I think this hotel is expanding).

WONDERFUL ”

This was one of our favorite places to stay in Thailand. It’s relaxing and clean and the food was great! The staff was SO accommodating and kind. It is on the quiet side of Phi Phi which is (in our opinion) the best side. Beautiful clean beaches, lots of places to eat and drink and great massages close by. We recommend doing a private boat tour of the islands while you are there. The staff will help you book everything. Can’t recommend highly enough!

The best views on Phi Phi Island”

Simply the best views on Phi Phi Island. But yes you have to work for it as it is 150 steps from the beach to the reception. It’s ideal for anyone in their 20’s to late 40’s due to the physical level of fitness required to go up and down the steps each day...but it’s worth it! Easy access from Tonsai Pier to the end of Long Beach via a longboat...staff are exceptional but don’t expect the room to be cleaned until late afternoon each day

Costly spot up the hill with nice views ”

Stayed for two nights only, here is our summary: Pros: close to Long Beach which is fantastic for swimming, snorkeling, restaurants, etc; nice breakfast with good coffee; you can rent towels and snorkel equipment for free; good bar serving dinner and drinks; resort is spacious with a park-like vibe; the rooms are clean and quiet; staff is friendly and polite Cons: transport via longtail boat to/from the resort was difficult - one day we waited for about 2h at Tonsai pier to get a boat; communication with resort was slow - we were asked to provide a time for pickup the day before arriving at Tonsai pier, but never got a confirmation, once we arrived no HIP staff could be found and we only reached the resort after many calls; you should be physically fit to climb up the stairs (your luggage is taken care of by the staff though); description of HIP stated there was a pool, but there is none. Overall: nice place with great views, but given the value for money, we’d chose another spot at Long Beach next time.

Great stay at HIP sea view resort”

The staff here were really helpful with ideas of how to spend our time on the island. The location at the end of long beach is great as this part of the beach is not busy at all and it right next to some great snorkelling at shark point. Some of the other reviews say that the walk up to the hotel is a problem. The steps are steep but it only takes a couple of minutes to walk up them so this wasn't an issue plus the location of the cabins is lovely - away from the busy island. We really enjoyed our stay here.

We did a fair bit of research before we committed to staying here. We wanted to visit Phi Phi but wanted to be away from the main town, all the loud parties and an awful lot of the clientele! And we nailed it, Hip is located at the far end of the island, just 5 minutes away from town on a longtail boat. The beach is clean, there's a few restaurants and bars and the snorkelling is great (saw a shark!). Yes, to get up to Hip there are 100 stairs...but really, if you can't climb them, you're doing something wrong in life and we actually learned to enjoy the little work out after a Pad Thai and a Chang! Once you're at Hip though, it goes downhill a little after all that uphill. It's basically unfinished, and not afraid to show it. The reception is unpainted and looks more like a booking counter at a ferry terminal, whilst the restaurant area almost looks like an afterthought and again, you're surrounded with unfinished walls, outbuildings and kitchen area. It's a shame as it wouldn't take much to sort out. The rooms are actually pretty good though, they are spacious with decent AC and nice hot showers. There was a lot of construction work going on on new bungalows but it wasn't too bad (although they should have been focussing on finishing that restaurant area). finally, breakfast in the morning was a random affair. we made a few different requests over our 3 mornings and most of them never showed up. sometimes fresh fruit came out for one of us, but not the other. Sometimes the omelette would be plain, other times it would be bursting with vegetables. All in, I think we'd maybe stay again, mainly because of location, but they could definitely help themselves by spending a day or two finishing the place off.
