Best Vibes and Location on Koh Lipe”

I originally booked The Reef for its location and value, but the staff and atmosphere brought me back for additional stay with no hesitation. I was very keen to explore all of Koh Lipe during my time on the island so The Reef's central location was perfect. It was always a short walk to the room to drop something off or pick something up in between activities. As for the staff, Nok was an exceptional host who easily boosted our experience to 6 stars. She always greeted us with a smile, offered suggestions for activities in the area, and she kept us smiling and laughing. The rest of the staff were always very friendly and helpful as well, including the owner who took time out of his day to chat with us. The rooms were clean, with comfortable beds, nice hot showers, and sufficient AC. The reception and breakfast areas block most noise from the road so even as a very light sleeper I had no issues. Breakfast each morning was substantial and delicious. I can't recommend The Reef enough.

A cosy place which absolutely deserves a mention.”

1) Spacious room with plenty of storage space. 2) Fluffy pillows and duvets. 3) Friendly and efficient staffs.

Excellent. For a traveler on her first solo trip, I felt very much at ease staying at the Reef. There's even a full length mirror right outside the bathroom. For minor improvements, a pre-cut mosquito netting for the small holes on the bathroom wall will be good to keep the insects out. Mini fridge in room requires servicing of some sort as the compressor noises woke me up in the middle of the night. Overall, I'll definitely recommend other first time solo travelers to stay here throughout their entire trip in Koh Lipe.

Chic little hotel with amazing breakfast!”

Really lovely little spot, off the main drag so quieter, but still walking distance to the whole of the island. Breakfast super nice, staff lovely. There were some mozzies in my room - couldn't figure out where they came from - maybe a can of mozzie spray in the room would have been good! (No. 6). Also can hear some noise from neighbouring rooms. Actually preferred the "cheaper/smaller" one I moved to for an extra night after this booking - quieter, no mozzies! Definitely try the Indian restaurant just down the road!!! Good aircon, nice terrace, wifi worked OK for me/fairly stable (I work online). I'd go back! I would note Koh Lipe seems more pricey than other places in Thailand but once on the island, the price is what the price is! :)

Nice little hotel”

Good location, Spacious room, Friendly staffs

We stayed for 2 nights. Nobody picked us up on arrival and we had to find our way to the hotel. Check in was quick and smooth. Our room (Room 8) was clean, spacious and comfortable but there was no table & chair. The hotel's location was good. Near to Walking Street, 5 minutes to Sunrise Beach and 10 minutes to Pattaya Beach. The hotel staffs were very helpful and friendly. They lend us a 3 pin charger to charge our mobile phones. Beach towels were provided upon request. Breakfast was okay but we did not really enjoy it because there was many flies and cats which made us really uncomfortable. Overall we had a pleasant stay and wonderful trip at Koh Lipe. Would recommend this hotel if you are on budget and don't mind not having sea view.

Comfortable stay, all within expectations ”

Satisfying breakfast, accommodating staff, great location

When it's Koh Lipe, we need to adopt a different set of expectations in hotel accommodation. In Koh Lipe, the hotel stays are definitely on a high side, hence, staying at The Reef was within expectations. Even though the aircon was leaking and was not cold enough, the Reef made up for it by providing a fan. This provided enough comfort for us as the weather was extremely hot in Koh Lipe. The room was comfortable enough for us to have a good night's rest. The water pressure was too low so we took a longer time at bath. However, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. They were full of smiles and ever ready to assist us. One thing that is superb about The Reef is that it is very near sunrise beach and I must say this beach is the best compared to the other two.

Easy access to main 3 beaches, Clean & quiet.

Best island left in Thailand for quietness, super friendly local people. This comes from me who has lived in Thailand for over 15 years and travelled everywhere. Two cheap Thai local restaurants nearby , plus a mini mart.....that's far cheaper than 7/11 in walking street. Italian restaurant at bottom of walking street 5 mins from the reef is great, called Lemoncella. If you stay on Koh Lipe please take part with Monday mornings Trash hero....helping to keep beaches clean. OR do as we did....do your own beach clean up late afternoon...cos we hate waking up early on holiday.......every bit helps !!!!!!

10% discount for Adang Sea Divers package. Friendly staffs. Warmly breakfast.

We went in group of 4 people, stayed only one night in Family Deluxe room. The room condition is OK if you r not fussy. Cleanliness and tidiness are there. The staff especially receptionist is very friendly and helpful, and no problem to communicate in english. Free warmly breakfast is a plus. The best is, Reef hotel guest get 10% discount on any snorkeling/diving package with Adang Sea Divers, which is just about 3 minutes walk from the hotel. The dive shop is one of the best dive shop in Koh Lipe. The only downside is the location, some may found a little far to walk to a beach, which I am not so mind about.

Location, staff and price for value

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a 5 night stay at The Reef. We were very very happy with this hotel. We booked the deluxe room. The room itself was big and it had a huge and very comfortable bed along with a flat screen TV, DVD player and aircon. The main reason why we booked this place rather than stay in a beach bungalow is because both of us had to be able to do some work through out our stay, so internet and a common space was important. This place was perfect and we were more than happy with our stay here. It's also a nice break to be in a cool and cozy room after long hours in the sun and snorkeling. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable. ;)

The bathroom was not as clean as I want but acceptable. There wear many mosquito in the bathroom so make sure you close the door. The breakfast was not buffet but good and enough.
