We got upgraded because the hotel was fully booked. The staff (I forgot her name) was very helpful. She recommended us a great place for lunch and booked us for our island-hopping tour. Also, please know that the hotel do provide free transfer services once you arrive. Do inform them earlier so they can come and pick you up for free, and save 50 baht per person for the tuktuk
Good rooms upstairs”
Do yourself a favour and spend a little extra for one of the balcony rooms upstairs. New rooms are added which makes a fair bit of noise but only 10:30-17:00. There is a mosque next door which makes a brief morning call at 05:20 am. Unusual breakfast options, very pleasant breakfast area but should be strictly non-smoking!!!
Nice room in good location”
Reef is a small building in the centre of the island at the back of Walking Street. Modest breakfast. Staff are friendly and attentive. Taxi service will pick you up from the beach where the speed-boats land. Room 12 has a large bathroom and an external balcony where you can chill in the shade. Only negative was some expansion work going on next door with continuous noise during the daytime. Guess this will be complete in a couple more months.
Great place with great location!!!”
We stayed in the deluxe balcony suit for 6 nights. Very big with awesome balcony. Staff was beyond helpfully and spoke good English. Breakfast was good well worth it. Everything was super close and walking distance. Rooms where very clean. A/C worked awesome. would definitely recommend !
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! :)
Very nice friendly n helpful staff. Breakfasts were nice too! Also loved the cats there! It was also nice that the staff used motorbike with sidecar to send us to the departure pier. One negative comment is I saw staff wiping food debris down to the floor while cleanning up the table at the dinning area.
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.
Very satisfied and recommended”
The Reef's location is excellent as it is very near to the walking street. Walking distance to all 3 beaches. The staffs are very friendly and helpful, making us feel welcomed. Very comfort environment which suit for all type of travellers. Nice breakfast too. The only drawbacks being the water flow in bathroom a little slow and sometimes little insects are found inside the room. Anyway, these are just very minor issue and did not ruin our pleasant stay in The Reef.
Nok and the team..Thank you”
Having a nightmare start to this trip. With TIGERLINE loosing my luggage. (Please do not book with these cowboys) I was greeted by the friendly staff at the hotel. The room was clean but very small with no storage spaces. As I had no luggage. It was so much of a problem. The breakfast is good. Nok was amazing. She tried 2 or 3 times per day to see if my luggage had turned up..So a HUGE kudo to her. Thank you Nok.. You are a credit to that hotel.
Very nice and happy”
The reef is a nice hotel. The hotel close to the walking street, easy to go to sunrise and sunset beach. The staff are very nice and friendly, breakfast is simple but nice. I went to koh lipe last year, I meet two orange cats in bar. this year I met them again, because they stay in the reef hotel, I was so happy to see them .
Everything else is good. Our only problem is there were too many ants in the room. They are all over the walls, doors, bathrooms and on the beds as well. We have to remove all the ants from our beds everytime we want to land on the bed. In fact, we have to clean the ants all the time. And those were red ants.
Ko Lipe is awesome, too many travelers, hi priced”
We came to hotel from the boat at 11 am. We've been told the room will be ready by 3 pm. Left bags in locker and went to the beach. Room was spacious and clean. Staff was helpful and always smiling. Location is good, in the middle of the island, just a few steps off the walking street, and few minutes walk to Sunrise Beach, which was the best.
Good standard ”
It's a good solid hotel for the location it's clean and well situated. I overlooked the fact that the bathrooms were shared so the rooms turned out smaller than expected. Make sure to try to get a room with a bigger window if you get a fan room, otnerwise it could get hot. It's nice that each room has its own table and chair on the shared deck outside.
breakfast should be improved, good location”
Cleanliness of the cafe needs to be improved. A lot of flies buzzing around when we were having our breakfast in the cafe. Breakfast provided was disappointing as not many variety offered. We had the same breakfast 3 days in a row. Staffs were very efficient to help out our needs at the hotel.
Great location within easy short walk to everythin”
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 !!!!!!
Very nice family room”
We book 2 standard room and 1 family room. All room very nice and clean compare to other hotel I staying before at koh lipe. The family room very comfortable and big. The drinking and eating area at the hotel very relaxing. The only bad thing about the hotel is too far from walking street and no direction sign a bit difficult to find.
I will return”
I really enjoyed The Reef. They staff was very very kind and helpful. The rooms were big, modern and comfortable. Nothing special about the location except it's convenient to walk to all the beaches and the main walking street restaurants. If you are not attached to the idea of staying right on the beach, it's great option.
A home away from home, a lovely place!”
We stayed here for 2 nights, it was a very pleasant stay and we will highly recommended this place to others! Compare to the second hotel (Mali) which we stay, The Reef Hotel totally stand out for it's great services and value! We miss Wang the cat and the friendly staffs at The Reef!
A great hotel in Koh Lipe”
We really enjoyed our stay at the Reef Hotel. The room was spacious and had air con, free movie rental and a fridge in the room. The bathroom was great- we had just been in two places whose rooms did not come with a washbasin! The breakfast was amazing- great eggs and bacon! The room was serviced everyday and they supplied fresh drinking water daily. The staff were very friendly. Overall, a great place to stay!
Value for $$ & location”
