We planned to stay 3 nights and then go a bit cheaper but ended up staying for a month. We switched from an AC suite to fan rooms which are very nice, very comfortable beds and nice facilities. Nok, Julia and team are wonderful. They are so helpful and genuine, you feel like a member of the family. The breakfast...

This hotel is located very central to everything around the island. You can reach beaches and restaurants within minutes. Aside from the strategical location, the hotel has wonderful staff who helped with our request. The rooms are clean but the bed was slightly hard but overall I had a pleasant experience staying here and would recommend it to anyone going...

As a solo woman traveler, The Reef was my calm and peaceful home for 6 nights in February 2017. Koh Lipe is gorgeous and The Reef is a great base to explore the island. The rooms are clean, the staff attentive and efficient and soda the cat will keep you company for the price of a belly scratch. I found...

The local staff here are very lovely and try their best to help you. They are the main plus point of this place. However I was quite disappointed with the hotel itself. The communal areas and 'garden' need a lot of work, as does the outside of the hotel. It is located right on the road which can be noisy,...

I liked my hotel room - it was clean, bright, comfortable, the a/c worked great. Breakfast is good, with a decent amount of options. The breakfast space is quite limited for seating, so my advice is either go early or go late - I was up for diving usually early, but on my last morning at around 8am, it was...

Room is small but clean and everything needed is provided. Comfortable. Very good service with good breakfast. The price is very reasonable. The location is great too, 3 min walk to walking street. Not very near to beach.
