    Great place to stay”

    If you’re looking for a local and natural place to stay, Gecko’s the right choice! Be aware that there are a lot (!) of mosquitos (but that’s for all Lipe in general) and it can get quite hot in the room. As there’s a lot of nature around, it also can get quite noisy at night! Location is perfect (right at walking street, 5 min to Pattaya Beach), Staff very friendly and helpful. Always happy to stay there!

    Great for island experience”

    Really loved my stay, the bungalow is clean and bed is comfortable. Just get a little hot cause the fan flow did not get to us because of the mosquito net, need to open that net to feel the wind. Water pressure is great, very cooling shower in that hot weather. Very important. Location is great, very near to the Walking Street, in the middle of the island, so its very easy to get to walk to all beaches. At night, we can hear people talking at the common area, but it is fine, can still sleep cause too tired. Not a place for people with small baby and kids, please, for the sake of your kids and other people staying there.

    We stayed for 4 nights in Gecko Lipe. At first I was quite skeptical of this place, but upon arrival I was in awe. The place is located just behind the shop rows in Walking Street but the ambiance is so serene and peaceful. The room is simple but clean. The staffs were friendly and caring. They cleaned our room everyday and they will put mosquito repellent in front of your door every evening. They also provide bananas, tea/coffee/water, books in the common space. Would definitely come back to this place.

    cute bamboo bungalow in the middle of the island, easy walk to everywhere. They've taken great care setting up the surrounds, feels like you're staying in a tropical rainforest. Very handy having a water fountain available & staff were considerate to lit a mosquito coil at our front door every night. The bathrooms are quite basic though & there was a bit of noise at night from the nearby road

    Had a great stay here, the bungalow was very comfortable and clean. We even got to sit outside and enjoy our decking because of the mosquito repellent incense they put out, which is an added bonus. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location is great because it’s right in the middle of the island just off walking street. Great for exploring!

    Only downside was the wifi. Very spotty and slow most of the time. While you’re not there to browse the net all the time, it’s nice not having to wait 4 minutes to load a page to book a ferry or trip.

    Location was ok, 5-10 minutes walk from the beach. Stayed in a deluxe room, had hot shower. Room only had a fan but it was ok. Room was small but acceptable cos only needed a place to sleep. Toilet was ok but water pressure not too strong. Water, coffee and tea provided in the common area which was good. Price was ok as well. Would definitely stay here again.

    We loved staying here, if you're a nature lover you will enjoy this place too! Their focus on sustainability is such a great thing, with their great idea of providing re usable water bottles and free water. The common area is very comfortable, and the WIFI works well. The deluxe bamboo bungalows are very comfortable and unique, and listening to the crickets and frogs at night is lovely.

    location, cleanliness, nature

    Nestled in the middle of walking street, you enter a quiet and somewhat peaceful space into Gecko. Where our room was we could hear faint music at night, but it was okay as it wasnt thumping loud. The only thing that really bothered me were the mozzies! even with the net, it still isnt 100% mosquito-proof. So really you need to be equipped with a good anti-mosquito spray or be prepared for the mozzies to feed on you. Weather gets pretty cool at night so it's still do-able without the a/c. I have to add that the bed was surprisingly comfortable. Sheets and towels all smell clean- definitely a plus point. Overall a good experience at Gecko.

    Cozy room, homey feel, clean

    I love this hotel! It's very relaxing and you have your own cottage. I love that the bed has a mosquito net and has a thick mattress. The bathroom is modern but still makes you feel like you're in a jungle. Shower area has no roof. One time while I was taking a shower, a frog jumped off to my face, literally. Every morning, you'll hear birds chirping loudly. This hotel is very close to restos, travel agencies and spas. I'm already missing it as I'm writing. Beaches are walking distance. Wifi is really poor. I had to go to a coffee shop just to do my business online.

    new, clean bungalows, very friendly owners

    This place is recommended for those, who wish to stay near the main walking street and enjoy the natural bamboo-bungalow-style. The bungalows are new, clean and smell well. The owners are young, enthusiastic, very friendly and welcoming. Gecko Lipe is located in the center of the island, close to the shops and restaurants, but still offers you a guiet sleep-time in the night. Some mosquitos are present. Due to the building process in this resort, the restaurant does not exist yet, therefore for your breakfast&lunch&dinner you will be going to the main street nearby.

    Very nice basic bungalow with everything you need. Only cold shower but it’s ok bc it’s warm and sunny :) Also the place is very close to the Main Street but normally pretty quiet (except if there is a big party - in that case you can clearly hear everything’s happening in the village). We loved it and would definitely go there if I’m back on the island one day !

    The price is way too much for what you get for the standard bungalow: a fan, a cold shower, half outside bathroom and wifi that doesn't work. The English speaking staff is very helpfull. The location is nice, at walking distance from everything, but so is almost every stay in Koh Lipe. The cleaning is good, every day and you can get free water at the common area.
