I loved it, we had a great balcony view. The rooms were clean, and new enough. I was glad to be away from the noise of the bar area down below us. I recommend staying here for 2 or 3 days, well worth it. For a longer stay, maybe get a resort on Long Beach.

Owner Chris was very helpful. Even walked us to the pier to make sure we didn't get lost. There a many steps to get up to the hotel, but the views are worth it. Rooms are excellent. Definitely would stay again.

Awesome views, and the hotel has a resturant right out side your room! It's really nice to be away from the beach at night if you're not a huge party goer. Bring mosquito spray for the night as it is close to the national park/ jungle

The staff is very friendly, always smiling. The rooms are gorgeous with a great view for the money. Very close to the Pier, taxi boats and beach. The restaurant makes good food and very fast. Great place to stay!

          So Phi Phi Arboreal Resort was a very basic room. Could of done with a lick of paint and a bit of love! However.. the view was incredible. The hotel is located half way up the Phi Phi view point steps (DO NOT STAY HERE IF UNABLE TO CLIMB MANY STEPS) which for some people would be a negative but for my partner and I was a positive - super easy to get to the view point (which is not to be missed) and close enough to the action; you can be in Tonsai Village in 5-10 mins but without the noise - if anything it is very peaceful up there! It’s not so much of a “resort” - no pool or other facilities but very cheap and with a view to die for! I would recommend.

          I stayed here 4 times in a row. If hundreds of stairs doesn’t scare you, is a very good place to stay. You have a panoramic view over the island, this is just brilliant. Room is clean, bathroom is ok. Breakfast is not the Best, but you can find an option Compared with other accommodations at the same price, I preferred arboreal. But again, take into consideration the stairs :))

          This hotel was fantastic, with an amazing view of the beaches and cliffs of Phi Phi. We spent our first night in a small room in the middle of the noisy, party atmosphere of town. After that night we immediately booked this hotel in a quieter area. The only downside is that there is a fairly arduous uphill climb to get to this hotel, but the view is well worth it.

          Would choose it again”
          Got two adjacent rooms in the sixth floor, with a magnificent view and exactly as depicted in the site pictures. Staff is incredibly helpful and friendly, breakfast is somewhat limited but very good. Many options in the menu for lunch/dinner though. The noise from the partying in the beach was almost inaudible and the aircon worked perfectly. We already knew from prior reviews on the accessibility issue from the number of stairs to our room (255 to be precise :), or about 10 floors in a normal building). Definitely not suitable for someone with limited mobility or very out of shape. The great view comes at a price, and by the fourth day my calves were not hurting anymore. Again, if I have a chance to go back, I will pick it again. Thanks for the hospitality!

          The views are spectacular. And staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The resort is located far enough away from the night life that you can escape the noise. However, if you are not willing or able to climb 100+ steps to get to and from your room, this is not the resort for you. In hindsight the workout was well worth the views and quiet, but it’s definitely something you should take into consideration when booking.

          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.

          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.

          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.

          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.

          First I had problems with my booking through Agoda, but I fixed it by contacting the hotel as Agoda were slow. There was no information about the hotel having over 100 steps I went with my parents and my dad has bad knees. I wouldn't have booked the hotel if I knew. It felt more like a motel than a hotel. The view was nice from the lobby. My room description said mountain view, but was mostly covered by the building in front of my room. The staff were nice and very friendly. the shower and toilet were next to each other, so I had to dry the toilet after every shower. and the ceiling was only about 2 meters it made the room feel a bit cramped. No WiFi in the rooms (not mentioned until check in). And the satellite TV didn't work properly sometimes it froze and the picture quality was bad. I had problems sleeping at night because of the loud music from the bars and clubs and in the morning i was woken up some rooster.

          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..

          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.
