Hotel is clean and staff extremely helpful and friendly. It's worth your money to book a room a bit higher so you can see the breathtaking panoramic views. We stayed in the C-section of the hotel which meant 160 steps on the stairs.. Good exercise.

Yes there is a lot of steps to climb to your room but they help you with your luggage and give you a fresh towel with orange juice at the reception. Great attention! The standard room we had is small but was perfect for short stay. It was clean.

Regardless of the long walk and painful climb up the stairs to our room, it was always worth it. The staff are friendly and helpful. Our room had an amazingly breathtaking view. I would do it all over again.

    Good view of the sea”
    The resort is very near to the viewpoint. There are many flights of stairs to the reception and rooms. Because of the height, the view is beautiful; you could see both the Tonsai and Loh Dalum bays. Room is clean, simple and basic. The location is good - town, restaurants and beaches are within walking distance and yet not noisy. But, you do get noise from people stamping their feet next door/upstairs. Breakfast is room service; there is no restaurant in the resort. The choice is limited - alternate between mueslia and eggs. We stayed there for 6 nights and for some reason, we had mueslia almost everyday except for 2 days - once we ate out and another the eggs. There are many monkeys and mozzies. So, be prepared if you plan to breaskfast at the balcony. We had monkeys on our last day. Of course, they came without invitation! As it was Christmas period, they gave every guests a mini xmas gift. That's a very nice touch!

    Totally amazing experience”
    Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 13 nights and it was a really great experience. The view from the room is almost as wonderful as from the View point because the hotel is just below the View point. There are a lot of stairs but even though I am not the fittest person in the world I got used to it, because noting can bit having your morning coffee and breakfast with such a view. The staff was more than friendly they pick you up at the pier and carry your luggage to the room (and back when you are leaving) which is more then necessary if you are traveling like we did for 27 hours straight. You have drinking water that comes with the room and they refill every 3rd day when they clean the room, and there is coffee in the room as well. The hotel gave us a complementary bottle of wine, and when we checked out a graphic drawing printed on recycled paper which literary brought tears to my eyes. Overall it was a great experience and would go back if ever on Phi Phi again. Thank you Papaya!

    Papaya is a lovely place to stay. We got greeted with bottles of water on arrival, after walking to the hotel you need it! The staff are lovely and helpful, location is great as it’s away from all the caos on the beaches yet the stairs are a killer walking up to your room. The view from our room was wonderful and the balcony had monkeys on most mornings.

    Good!!!”
    We booked 2 times this hotel. The 1st room we’ve got (A1) was big (the room was for 3 persons and we were 2), everything was working perfectly, we had a big balcony and we couldn’t see the sea, but it was ok. We had breakfast and it was bread, butter/jam, coffee, juice and fruits with yogurt. The second time our room was smaller (C3), but it was ok. The only problem was the yellow water but the staff told us the water was good and the color was ’cause of the rain. The AC was also dripping water. The view was better!! In general the hotel is good, far away from noisy areas, but close enough to go walking to the beach and restaurants. They offer a pick up service (to help you with the bags from the pier to the hotel - inform the time that you will arrive). Everybody talks about the stairs and it is true. There’s a lot of stairs and it is a good exercise. It was 141 steps to get to our 2nd room. So if you book this place, I guarantee that you will step up at list 98 steps (room A1).

    Amazing views!”
    We chose Papaya for our stay on Phi Phi as we wanted to be away from the busy centre. We had a room at the very top of the hotel so there were a lot of steps to reach it, but the views from the balcony were worth the climb. We could still hear some noise travelling up from the town centre but it wasn't loud enough to keep us awake at night. Upon arrival at the pier a member of staff if there to help with luggage and upon departure they offer bag transfer back to the pier at various times through the day. Our room was comfortable with a double bed, private bathroom, air con, mini fridge, a safe, tea and coffee, free bottle water for each day of our stay and a balcony. WiFi worked ok most of the time.

    Good place to stay”
    The first thing that really stood out within our stay at the Papaya Phi Phi Resort was the location of our Bungalow at the very top of the property right underneath the viewpoint enabling us to see both bays. Nonetheless this also meant that we had to climb A LOT of stairs to get there, 196 to be exact, but it was worth it. The staff was really nice, the atmosphere was good. The breakfast was not that great unfortunately, however this isn't a reason for me not to recommend it. When I return to Koh Phi Phi I would book it again.

    Great hotel with lovely views across the island on the higher rooms (although lots of steps to get there!) breakfast is lovely and is brought to your room. A little out of the way of the centre of the island so not too noisy at night but only takes a couple of minutes to reach so an ideal location :-)

    Amazing view, good value, and monkeys!!”
    Yes, there are a lot of stairs but it's nothing terrible - my room was fairly high up and for the view I got, I didn't mind. You could ask for a room closer to ground level and then you won't have as many to climb. But if you're in decent shape and don't need to go back and forth to your room a lot, you'll be fine. Room was very basic but clean. The view was amazing and the monkeys put on quite a show in the morning! Could hear music at night from a club down below (which was surprising because this place is set back a bit) but not loud enough to bother me. All around, glad I stayed there!

    Enjoyed our stay very much ”
    We were a bit nervous when booking here for the hike up the staits that everyone spoke about; we were pleasantly surprised as it was not that bad. We were very happy that we were greeted at the pier with very helpful employees who carried our bags. We liked that the location was further out from the party scene as we could not hear the partying into the night. It may have been a walk to the main town but it was well worth the good nights sleep. We originally booked for two nights but ended up staying four and the reception staff were very accommodating in making the changes; especially considering how full the hotel was that week. The rooms were nice; not luxurious but great value for money. I would highly recommend to anyone who is relatively fit and does not mind a bit of a walk and does not want to be partying every night.

    The view from the room was worth every step up the hill! And there are some steps to climb, believe me! The room was really small but clean and enough to go back and rest. The staff was really nice and did their best. We saw monkeys several times, but not so much as I was expected. If there is no food left in the balcony they are not bothering coming down, so you shouldnt be worried.

    The resort offered the best view of the island. Was amazing view to wake up to every morning. However it did come at a cost of having to climb up the stairs every night. My wife and I didn't mind as it made up for all the amazing food and beer were enjoying all day.

    Suitable only for mountain goats and Tour de France champions”
    How many stairs is "a lot"? A 10 minute walk uphill from the beach, 88 stairs to the lobby, another 124 stairs to the rooms with the best views. Really, that many. I read the reviews when booking and saw that people had said there were a lot of stairs. I just figured that would mean more like climbing a 5-story building not a 15-story building! Every time you want to go back to your room! There wasn't even a phone in the room to call the lobby if you needed something. You had to trek down 124 steps to the lobby. To be fair though, the room smelled nice and the views were beautiful; however, not worth at all worth the stairs. The front desk staff was not very helpful or friendly, either. Don't stay here unless you're a mountain goat or a Tour de France champion! It's just not worth it.

    There is gonna be the bell boy wait to pick you up at the pier, helping you a luggage. After that you have too walk a little far to get to the hotel. The room were super clean. Btw bewear the monkey but they don't gonna do anything to you. Lastly, I appreciated all the friendly staffs . As my phone drawing into the sea, they gave me their laptop for me to run the necessary things also give me the advice which is I did not expect that such a kindness of them. I would wrap this stay as a fabulous one and I would definitely go back! That's all I can recommend 👍🏼
