Nice view, near view point

The only disadvantage is that you get a lot of loud music from the bars around. And for some people maybe the fact that you have to walk 120 stairs until you reach the hotel from the main road

Great staff. Great view, far enough from all the party noise so you can still sleep, but close enough to be a short walk from all the food and fun.

We stayed in family room (There are 3 family rooms. They are located in one place). I absolutely like panoramic view and location on a hill - you can listen to music from all over the island ;)

If you are travelling with friends , Its recommended to opt for a hostel in Phi Phi . But if you are with a couple . Very good location of the hotel , and very nice staff !

          Very good”
          After reading some of the reviews prior to booking at Arboreal (some unbelievably nasty), we nearly didn't book there. Well I am very glad we did as the other reviews were mostly absolute rubbish! Yes, I will agree that there are a number of steps to get to the resort, however they are by no means insurmountable and really if you can't even make it up a moderate amount of steps then you seriously need to do something about your general health fast! The view from the resort is amazing, the rooms we had were their budget option and were comfortable, clean, and had a recent makeover by the looks of them. Very close to the shops, bars, back beach etc. Also the remaining steps to View Point run right past Arboreal, we highly recommend making the effort to go to the top, best 30baht you will spend in Thailand I assure you. Restaurant prices were quite cheap by resort standards and fairly good value, staff were attentive and polite, games, books and WiFi is available in this area also.

          Dangerous! Stay away! This is not a hotel!”
          This dangerous place must get close now. stay away to protect yourselves This old destroyed place is out in a bad poor neighborhood. We were waiting 40 min until someone of the staff come and escort us there. After arrived they gave us an old key and we went to the room. An old dirty door could open by anyone very easy. When we opened the hell was behind. A very old place with dust everywhere , the most dirty room i have ever seen. Mosquitoes, flyes, two lizzards and cockroaches were there to welcome us. A bed hard as stone with dirty sheets with holes ,yellow stamps and blood stamps everywhere. Towels and bathroom - the same. 35 degrees hot inside as the AC didnt work and a terrible smell of shit. When we asked for help they show us another room same terrible as the first. No wifi in the room. Their law was wifi only at the reception. They refuse to offer us breakfast because of their mistake. Finally bf was 2 toast slices, coffee and pineapple. Bad staff. Rude and dirty.

          Really nice rooms that are well worth the price. Very nicely furnished and well equipped. Lush garden surrounds. Only drawback is that its a little out of the way/hard to find, and you'll be sweating after the climb up the hill to the hotel!

          disapointment”
          it is on the hill. So you need to hike up the hill and down the hill to reach any signs of civilization. You even have to hike down to the front desk to borrow a hair dryer. I've upgraded to a room with a view...but it is just a slightly better view than the other hotels in Phi Phi. There is no glass or anything between the shower area and the toilet. So you need to carefully shower so you don't splash water all over the toilet. The hotel is kind of in the woods, so i had to shared the room with a few mosqitos ....The only big plus for this hotel is...if there were a tsunami, you don't need to run for your life.

          I had a lovely stay here, I was well received, my room looked over the island (not far below the viewpoint) it was very clean, it does have many steps to get up to the hotel but it’s worth it for the view. The restaurant here is also well worth checking out, I had a good food every time I ate there, I would book again.

          Awesome resort. The lady at reception is very kind and helpful. I was supposed to stay only 1 night but decided to stay one more night, since I loved it so much. Definitely sit out and watch the sun set! Your balcony will face the entire island so you can see everything. Will definitely be returning!

          Large room with big comfy bed, decent quality for price paid. Shower pressure is good and made up every day by housekeeping on request. Free bottled water, coffee/tea etc. Free beach towel use. Really friendly and lovely staff. Greeted with a welcome drink and someone met me at the pier and carried my bag all the way to the hotel. Location itself is good - can see the ocean and most of the island for all its beauty and is very close to main streets for loads of choices of food, drinks etc. Negatives - WiFi is only available in the public area which is a little annoying. There are a lot of stairs but after a day or 2 you’re used to climbing them anyway. No hair dryer.

I have a superior room. good for room and beautiful view in morning and night . Everything looks peaceful with nature. Accommodation near the scenic spot. And not far from the beach. 10 minutes walk. But far to the harbor. I am a woman thai traveling alone. It is very safe and everyone is friendly.

          Be prepared to climb, climb, climb and CLIMB ! ”
          Cons: The resort is located uphill which means you need to walk rather far from the Pier to reach this resort. Before you can even see the hotel, you need to climb at least 80 flights of inclined stairs which is very tough especially if you have lots of luggage with you. But the receptionist is really polite and friendly. They will help you to bring your stuffs to the Pier when you are leaving the hotel but you should give some small tips as the hotel is rather far fro the pier. For those of you who are interested in climbing the Phi Phi viewpoint which I personally think is rather worth it, it is just nearby this hotel. You already climbed 1/4 of the heights to reach the 2nd viewpoint ! Please provide shower gel instead of soap bars as the thin soap bar is really hard to use.. Thank you!! and your aircond is not cold..

          The location of the resort requires you to walk up the stairs. The resort was located up the hill, so guest have to walk up to the resort. The experience worsen during heavy rain and the walkway up to the resort are uncovered walkway.

          This is a great place to get away. It requires some hiking up and down the stairs. If you're planning on getting drunk every night, I don't recommend. I love this place because it's serene and the sunset view over the beach. You'll get to see monkeys on the rooftop as well. Staffs are attentive and friendly.

          Nice view but not for the unfit/lazy”
          Great view, clean rooms, friendly receptionist. Was picked up from pier without asking for that.
          We were picked up from the pier by a guy who carried our bags from there to our rooms, even though we hadn't asked for that service. As other reviewers have mentioned, there are A LOT of stairs to climb up, so if you are unfit or can't do lots of stairs for whatever reason you may want to give this a miss. But personally I looked at it as good exercise and tried running up whenever possible. When you do get up there it's a really good view of the side of the island we were staying in. The rooms are not as nice as the photos suggest, but they're not bad either. They were clean and I didn't have any problems. I didn't have breakfast as part of the deal so can't comment on that or the food they serve. Mosquitoes are a problem generally in this part of Thailand and the world, so I wouldn't blame the hotel. I got one of those plug in mosquito repellers and it worked great, so I wasn't bothered when I was inside my room. Small point to mention is that all the plugs are sideways not vertical.. It is quiet there, so you don't get disturbed by the noise from the bars like some other hotels that other reviewers complained about. That was one of the main reasons I booked this hotel and it worked out well. It's close enough to everything in town, maybe 5-10 min walk to most places. If you really want to be right in the middle of the action this isn't the place for you. The bathroom was okay. I personally hate the showers right next to the toilet without any barriers in between. This one was across from the toilet but there was still no barrier or shower curtain, which irritated me. The receptionist was very friendly and welcoming. I didn't interact with the other staff. She was very helpful when we wanted to check out late and keep our bags there while we looked for travel services off the island. The hotel can arrange tours but it is more expensive than going into the town and shopping around. However she was happy to give advice and information

          the room was great and cooled down fairly fast. however to get to the room we had to hike up 200 stairs. also, beware of the resident monkeys, if you leave a door open they will sneak in and try to steal food or toothpaste. the restaurant is very good. the servings are authentic, delicious, and large. added bonus you'll only have to hike up about 100 stairs afterward.
