    Hi.

    Any recommendations for accomodation on Ko Phi Phi? We are looking for something on the beachfront, very basic. We are not interested in mod cons like tv's etc, just a nice shack on the beach front. I have already tried Phi Phi relax beach resort but all their beachfront accom is fully booked for when we want to go. Any suggestions guys?

    Thanks

    My advice is just show up and look, that's how you'll find the best rates, if you don't mind walking a bit. and show up early just before check out time. I never book in advance online...

    Thanks for your reply. I forgot to mention I will be in Phi Phi from either the 10th or 11th April through Songkran. So thats why I was asking for any recommendations so I could book in advance. Was really hoping for some beach front accomodation. Any help? Or do you think I will still find a place by just turning up? Quite fancy long beach as we can have peace there but also get a longtail into town for partying (best of both).

    Cheers

    Beachfront accommodation in Thailand is very limited (all beaches are public land and cannot be legally built on) and Songkran is an extremely busy time. Phi Phi is always very busy full of tourists. You should take anything you can get.

    Perhaps try Toh Ko bungalows? They might also be booked up, but are right on the beach which is what you're looking for. But they're nowhere near Tonsai - you'd need to get a longtail every time you wanted to go somewhere else.

    Yep, Ao Toh Ko is a possibilty. Also google for Pooh Bunalows. Back near town have a google for Phi Phi Sand Sea View Resort on the unexpectedly nice far western end of Ton Sai beach. Although their front rowers were a bit above budget when I stayed.
    Long Beach Bunalows is budget but you are more likely to end up with a back-rower on this popular beach.
    Nearby Viking is a possibility.

    Note you may be shocked by the price of budget bungalows on Phi Phi. I've just travelled the Eastern Gulf and noted how a 300 or 400 baht place would be pushing 1000 on Phi Phi and some other Andaman locations in high (not peak) season.
