Wow!! This place is like a dream! We only had 1 night here, but wished we had a couple more. Every single staff member was so friendly. And the beach hut... love, love, love it. Rustic I suppose, but everything was clean and well kept. It was even better than the pictures online. We were in B04 right on the beach. Views from the restaurant are also amazing. It’s not a fancy place, but food was delicious and the cocktails were yummy and a little fancy!! This place is seriously unreal!! We had no issues at all. Longboat meets every incoming ferry so no need to arrange in advance. Transfer both ways was included in price. Beach is absolutely beautiful and the water is so warm, we could have swam all day!!
Amazing stay. Beautiful Get away location. Quality staff, restaurant & amenities. If looking to go into town often can be difficult & expensive & may not be able to return from town later than 11 pm. If just staying at resort, outstanding.
Completely isolated. Literally nothing to do in the (non existent) surrounding area. Dodgy wifi service. No phones in room? Food prices higher, food portions smaller. Only two shuttle boats to town daily. Far over priced. "Laundry service" consisted of doing our own laundry and then having to hang clothing around our villa due to dryer being broken "after less than 6 months" - 3 star rating would be generous.
Sure will come back”
It's a nice location if you want a very quiet place to rest and relaxing. It's isolated from phi phi island and you have a private beach to enjoy. Dont stay here if you want to be close to main attractions. The staff were sooo friendly and grateful. The ataff took the time to get get to know all his guest. Good a good restaurant with fabulous food.. Surely will come back..
Not worth money ”
We booked ocean view cliff villa, but actually cannot really see ocean because there’s many trees in front of balcony. Then the first room we got, V05 the shower was leaking electricity, so they changed us to another room, but lots of ants in shower room, and shower head is not adjustable...WiFi is not working at all during our stay also. I would say hotel outside look good, but indoor facility really need to be taken care of...very disappointed stay, hope they could improve
The restaurant prices is expensive but it’s very nice and delicious.. the air condition was very disappointing I was sweating all the night.. The staff are amazing .. the sea view is exceptional and the restaurant taste and menu is so good
Much too expensive for the service and the facilies. ”
This hotel is only reachable with a boat and has no facilities around, so nothing to do and if you want to go to the hillage you have to book a boat for arround 20 usd per ride. The rooms are not really well maintained. All in all maximum a 2-3 star accomondation never 4 star and for that the price is utopic
There was welcome drink provided. My boyfriend and i reached rantee beach in the noon. The weather was too hot. Suggest to have a fan in the room. Even tho the air-conditioning was working, but its kinda stuffy. They provided half day and one day trip to other island with reasonable price. Gentle reminder: the one day trip and half day trip start at 9am. We woke up early trying to reach the cove to join the afternoon trip, but we only knew that it was only available in the morning. Very nice view near the restaurant. There is no other water activities near the beach. But you can take alot of photos there.
Christmas Holiday in PP”
We loved staying at the cove. The restaurant/bar is fantastic. It is a short 15minute boat taxi to this location. If you are trying to do the nightlife in PP be warned that the taxi companies work together to charge you outrageous rates to get back to The Cove late in the evening or early in the morning. We avoided this and made our own cocktails on the beach at The Cove and met some very nice travelers and had a blast. The mosquitos are pretty bad but the gift shop sells the best repellant. The bed was comfortable enough. The wifi was not great but worked well enough for our needs. We were able to book a Maya Bay excursion with the friendly front desk team. They picked us up at 4:45am to get there for sunrise. This place is great! It was really relaxing.
Nice but alone ”
this is a very nice place to stay one night but not easy to access (only boat) and so not easy to go out ! nice room with sea view and good food (expensive and no other choice except walk in the jungle in the dark to come back to the pier or to book a private boat)
Far from the pier”
Getting there: The Cove is about 30 minutes boat ride from PhiPhi pier, last shuttle boat at 4 PM. So, half of your day is wasted! However, you can avail taxi boat at 800THB per couple (one way). About the room: We had booked Villa with Ocean View (Ocean Cliff Villa). View from the room is beautiful, but the room would be boiling hot if the AC isn’t switched on (unfortunately this was the case when we checked in). There were lizards all over and a foul smell! About the Food: Food was amazing, but no room delivery. About the Location: Private beach, calm and most relaxed atmosphere, with nothing around other than the hotel guests n staffs. Away from the hot and happening island (pier)!
Ive been too phi phi 3 times before. the 4th time was a charm ( The cove) . it's private, quite,and why you visited the island. Staff are great. the manager will guide you anywhere. The food is wonderful ,freshly prepared on the spot. FYI the beach bungalow was so nice.wake up, look at your toes and the beach is the backdrop, REALLY? Wow! Men you can't loose with your girl. Enjoy,The Texan
We stayed in the bungalows for the first few nights and we were eaten alive in our sleep even with bug spray and the provided mosquito net. Once we switched to the ocean view deluxe villa, the stay was outstanding. The view wasn’t as ocean view as many of the other villas, but its only a two minute walk down to the beach. The staff was great and very helpful.
We loved our stay at The Cove. Two whole weeks of sun , sand, water and relaxation. ”
The staff made us feel right at home from the minute we stepped off the longboat. My husband and I were looking for a holiday to unwind from our busy year. Remote , picturesque, fantastic snorkeling and romantic. We stayed in an Ocean Cliff Villa and were able to see the sunrise every morning. Magic sunset vistas to match . So great full for the opportunity to have found this gem. The restaurant offered a a great selection of traditional Thai dishes . We also had our fair share of cocktails to choose from. Cocktails are a must whilst holidaying in a tropical island!!! Thanks to all the staff for looking after us. We hope to return one day .
Me and my partner spent Christmas eve and Christmas day here and it was one big anticlimax. The room itself was really nice and the location is a perfect retreat from the phi phi party town. The wifi was non existent and being Christmas day we wanted to contact family but couldn’t so had to get a taxi boat back to the main town to access wifi. The restaurant serves good food but the service is dreadful, one couple next to us waited over an hour for food and it came out wrong which didn’t get changed until a further hour later. This place could be amazing but just isn’t. Overall very disappointing for the price.
Beautiful place but needs maintenance ”
The Cove is a perfect place to relax. Beautiful private beach, quiet and peaceful. You can reach it only with a boat. Food was very nice. Excellent customer service. We booked Clif villa. It was pretty nice BUT... the showe was not working, toilet was leaking, in the toilet was huge spider net. Generally the bathroom was smelling very bad. In the fridge was opened, half empty bottol of water. The sheets very smelling bad. The is no TV and the WI-FI was very poor. Low quality for quite expensive place.
What a peaceful and beautiful place in Phi Phi. ”
I was pleased about the whole experience. The resort is away from the crazy crowds and nobody was trying to sell me anything. Pure relax. Walk right in to the shallow corals for some lovely snorkeling as well. The WiFi was a bit on the slow end, but I felt it wasn't needed for this trip away from the hustle and bustle of mainland Thailand. The staff is friendly and helpful as well.
Quite, beautiful and away from the crowds”
The resort itself is well located away from the party areas, on a small beach with smallish but comfortable bungalows. The staff were wonderful and the ocean nearly perfect. The resort seems a little over priced for the experience but we had such a nice trip we were able to overlook that. The boat transfer through the hotel however was a joke. We arranged a boat transfer from Krabi's main pier to the resort, which was not cheap though is a pretty short longtail ride. When we arrived at the pier around lunch time there was a guy holding a sign for the resort who told us we wouldn't be heading to the resort until evening as we had to wait until the other hotel guests arrived... that was hours away. So we opted to find a boat taxi who took us to the resort for half the price of the hotels transfer. Overall we had a great experience and if we go back to Krabi for some reason would probably stay here again.
The Cove is absolute perfection. It’s peaceful and relaxing with stunning views. Staff are friendly and helpful. The food is beautiful - I recommend the beef in oyster sauce. The only downside was that our beach hut wasn’t cleaned during our two night stay (however was spotless when we arrived) we didn’t request for it to be cleaned - I’m sure if you asked they would.
Amazing destination ”
Beautiful beach, amazing service and hospitality
