“Location and value is perfect”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

Located in the centre of town, but not noisy at night. If you keep the door/window closed, you hear nearly nothing from the party outside which is going on till 4 am. It’s just a 5 minutes stroll to Tonsai pier or another 5 minutes to Lohdalum Beach. Furthermore I have no reason to complain about the kindness of the staff.
So, if I should complain about something it would be the pool area, which looked not well maintained during our stay AND a free WiFi would be really nice.

This bungalow is definitely a gem for the price we paid. Not expecting much from the price, we were very surprised by the calibre of the room and service!

The rooms were very spacious and very clean. And the pool is definitely a lovely addition.

Location? Can't be anything but brilliant. Phi Phi island is a small island, so the moment you step out of the bungalow, the shops are just around the corner. Everything is in very close proximity.

Phi Phi Island was beautiful and this bungalow just made it a much more pleasant stay.

I realised that having a hotel near to the ferry port in Phi Phi is important bec the only way to arrive Phi Phi is by ferry and then you have to WALK in this scorching heat with your heavy luggages. Luckily I had some help with the large wheelbarrow that they carry luggages for everyone going the same way. JJ residence was good enough to be near the Port. When entering the hotel you have to take you footwear off and leave it outside the hotel entrance in which I don't like.. The room is lovely and have this wooden style interior feature and got everything. Although the shower was weak running water. It is good value and yes I would stay there again. The receptionist are strongly Thai and cannot speak good English and are not that helpful. When I wrote something down for info they don't understand it. No lift and walking barefoot up three floor is not ideal. Swimming pool too cold but lovely looking. Can see the beach but it had alot of tree's in the way

We stayed here for 4 nights. The room was very good: spacious, very nice shower, good airco and a nice porch. Everyday cleaning and the pool was great. The location is very good: just 3 min. from the main beach and main bar street - but very quiet, we didn;t hear any music, which you think is impossible if you walk on Ko Phi Phi at night.

If you want to stay on Phi Phi town, JJ Residence is an expensive but excellent option - good value for money. But think twice: we hated Phi Phi town, which is like a paradise, but raped by clubs, bars and puking english and swedes. The diving/snorkeling is great, so I would advise staying at Long Beach - which we went to everyday (longtail = 100 THB/person).

Unfortunelately, we had to stay one day less than anticipated at forehand, due to some family issues. The room was paid for, and they would not give some of the money back, even though they knew it well in advance. In my opinion very poor service.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent, but if you want to splurge - take the pool room.

We really enjoyed our stay at JJs. It is in a great location, just a few steps from the beach, around the corner from the shops and far enough away from the noisy bars that you got a decent nights sleep. I would recommend trying to book one of the ground floor rooms, as this gives you access to the pool from your balcony. I doubt any occupants of the higher floor rooms would go into the pool, as access is not that easy, so you almost get a private pool.

You need to use the computers in reception, as there is no wifi access in your rooms.
