    Very good”

    Nice hotel, we booked the cheaper room which was tiny with a little window on the side alley, as it was low season we were able to pay for an upgrade. I would say the difference in rooms was worth the extra money, the smaller room was like a cell but the larger room was much better and had a table and chairs on the garden area, definately go for the better rooms if you stay here.

    We were received warm welcome from the staff while arriving for check in after a long journey to Koh Lipe. The room was clean and cozy for stay. Great location - less than 5 mins walk to Walking Street and some restaurants with several choices of delicious food. Just bear in mind you have to walk up on a slope to reach the hotel.

    Excellent location as it was only walking distance to Walking Street. Their breakfast was super delicious with a fantastic view. Their staff was also very warm and accommodating as we reached before the check in time and the rooms were available. Everything was very neat and tidy. Overall will definitely book this place again!

    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.

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.

    Great location for koh lipe. Quiet (at night), spacious room.”

    I've had the room with the balcony (city view). Spacious and clean. Great breakfast (a la Carte). Location is the best. In the middle of the 2 beaches and 1 minute away from walking street. quiet at night. Free movies to watch in your room 👍🏼. Hard bed. Safety box doesn't fit a small laptop. They are building new rooms next to mine, which means that the noise of drills began in the early morning and remained during the day. Staff didn't mention this at all. Staffmember at the reception was cranky and didn't understand my questions, but was helpful in the end.

    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.

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.

    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.

    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.
