Room was spacious, decor was very Thai indeed yet nice and pleasing! Housekeeping attendant was attentive and cleant up all our mess from the night before! The small pool cum jacuzzi at the rooftop was a hidden gem, nobody seems to know about it as we seem to be the only one up there everytime!
Location wise, it's still not too far from Bangla Road or the beach.. probably about 5 to 10 min walk, rent a bike & everywhere would be near! Would definitely recommend this to other travellers! Great place for great value!

The rain was consistent until after lunch so we chilled in the bungalow and watched a film and then when it eventually stopped we headed out for a walk and got some lunch.
We did a walking tour of our side of the island before sneaking into one of the nice hotel pools to cool off.
We headed back to get changed and went out ...
... where all cocktails were 100 baht each (£2). We sat in there for quite a while making our way through the cocktail list- needless to say we were quite drunk by the time we left to go back to the room (at 8pm!!). After calling my mum and my dad, I found Paul was asleep. He'd wanted to get changed and go back out but I'd has enough- especially as we were getting a boat to Phuket the next day- stuff being hungover on a boat!! I'd just got into bed (9pm) when Paul woke up ...
... for a chill. They do some great pizza on the island for 80p a slice, which fills a hole at lunch time. We headed back out at 7.30pm to meet Nicky and Graham for dinner. Only Nicky showed up as Graham was sick. This was a shame as we didn't get to say goodbye. Nicky left after dinner. Me and Noel stayed out to sample the notorious Phi Phi night life. We felt very old!!! Some of these girls were 16/17. We decided to embrace it and ordered a few famous buckets ...
... again and headed for several beaches. One was Monkey Beach, which boasted several monkey sightings and chances to interact with the monkeys. Fiona and I imagined a beach similar to that we visited in Costa Rica. No such luck. There was not a monkey in sight, and not for lack of trying... People were feeding the empty jungle floor, whistling and a lot of monkey impressions were happening- which was entertaining in its own right! A beautiful ...
... like we could capsize at any point. The boat stopped in a bay where we were told to get out and swim to some rope where you have to pull yourself up a rock. Getting to this rope was scary as there were so many big sharp rocks and the waves were pushing you into them. Luckily we all got onto the island ok and walked across to Maya Bay which has beautiful aqua blue water, the whitest sand, surrounded by huge square rocks. Unfortunately it was so ...
