Everything was amazing. The location is perfect within its own private beach (so keep in mind you'll need to ride a boat to get to this hotel). They offer free speed boat rides at specific times, but be sure to book ahead of time with the concierge as space fills up quickly. Once there's no more space you have to book a long tail boat and pay for this service per person.
You can borrow paddle boards or kayaks and take them around free of charge. This was pretty nice! They also offer complimentary daily activities for guests such as beach yoga, boot camp, beach volleyball, etc... The ocean-facing rooms have amazing views, so recommend staying at one of those.
For breakfast, we recommend booking room inclusive of breakfast as purchasing it onsite is 700THB per person. They do not offer a-la-carte breakfast so you're pretty much stuck with this expense even if you just want some fruit and oatmeal. They do offer an in-room dining option for breakfast, but the price is pretty close to the buffet, so we preferred to go for their buffet option.
Their restaurants are quite pricy and not so spectacular so perhaps try and eat some place within downtown Ao Nang.
Definitely use the monkey trail to go to downtown Ao Nang, it's quite amusing.

We (a family of 3) stayed 4 nights at this hotel and enjoyed it very much. Even it is a bit outside from everything it is a perfect place to relax. As we stayed during the world cup semi finals the hotel staff arranged for us a possibility to watch Brazil vs. Germany at the Hemingway room at 3:00 am in the morning, as TV reception of the game in the room was not possible.
The location was absolutely fine because they provide free shuttle Bas to Ao Nang beach. Secondly, you don't have to bargain price about trip package to the beaches because the hotel has already few package with fixed price which is reasonable. Me and my partner took the 4 Island package. We had so much fun with the tour guide and the facilities provided. And last but not least how sweet the hotel is suprised me with a complementary birthday cake in my room on my birthday. Me and my partner definitely have a great stay there.

After reading many negatives reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. All I can say is it was a fantastic place to stay, the staff always helpful, friendly and polite. The grounds were fantastic and the setting in the bay is like a slice of paradise. If you don't want to walk through the water or carry your own bag, spend the extra and book a transfer through the hotel. I will be staying there again in the future.
When you arrive, the lobby and the view are breathtaking. And the rest of the hotel lives up to this first impression. Our room was lovely - spotlessly clean and well-appointed. The staff were universally pleasant and helpful throughout the hotel. The facilities (pools, bars, restaurants, beachfront) are great. All-in-all it is a lovely hotel. My only gripe (and this is the same with all top-notch hotels) is that you have to pay (an extortionate sum) for wifi. Stay at a cheap hotel (even a backpacker hostel!) and they throw wifi in for free. Expensive hotels rip you off with that. That said, at least they give you free wifi in the lobby area.

We took the ferry from Krabi to Don Phi Phi Island and the Bay View Hotel, our trip was supposed to be 2 and a half hours but took about 3, it was very pleasant. The Harbor was quite busy but the sun was shining and the water was very clear so I did not mind waiting for the crowds to stop pushing to get off the boat. Everyone has to pay 20 BHT which is approx 35 to 40 pence to enter as this money is used to keep the beaches clean. I found Phi Phi one of the cleanest I have visited. We were then put into a longtail boat and transferred about 5 mins to the hotel. Our first thoughts were PARADISE, a truly wonderful setting, right on the beach. Our bungalow was part of the new phase that had been built and they were still working on the landscaping in our area. The room was small, with 2 single beds, a TV, nice big terrace and the bathroom was a wet room style. Very nice, comfortable and clean. We were very happy with our choice of hotel. The breakfast buffet was a little limited for me but perfectly adequate. The beer at the bar was quite expensive but there are lots of bars and restaurants nearby which are much cheaper. If kayaking out to a deserted beach and swimming and snorkeling with no-one around is your thing then this place is for you. I will be booking again for next year. Downside, hotel a little bit hilly if you are not able bodied.
