Sprawling and popular
P.P Casita is owned by Phi Phi Hotel and offers a broad selection of rooms, with small cosy bungalows through to larger chalets, along with classy rooms in a hotel-like block structure.
On our latest visit they were full, and when we returned to try to see a room again they had no staff to spare to show us a room. Very friendly and welcoming, nonetheless. All are air-con, have good beds, stylish but small bathrooms, and mini decks with a smattering of garden surrounds. Most of the rooms are in close vicinity to the walled-in-by-bamboo swimming pool which is quite the envy of the surrounding resorts, with its suave infinity edge and flashy sun loungers. The pool does seem to be packed at all times of the day, so ensure you grab your spot early. One bonus is that this resort is set back from the beach a little so that evening beach party noise pollution isn’t quite so savage. Popular with twenty-something couples; children under 10 are not allowed. Try to steer clear of the rooms at the rear as the footpath drains overflow and can get rather pungent. For the prices, WiFi in the room should be included but it’s only available at the reception and restaurant areas. Better rates are available online. Booking ahead is essential here since it’s busy year-round.
