The Reef was an excellent choice for us. We found it conveniently located to everything on Koh Lipe. A short walk to Sunrise and Pattaya Beach and an even shorter walk to 'Walking Street' with all of it's restaurants and shops. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly at all times. The Reef environment seemed like an oasis where there... More

Lipe is not a cheap island to go to and The Reef is one of the better value for money options compared to many other places to stay. It's in a good position just around the corner from Walking Street but closer to the nice end of Sunrise Beach that was our haven for over a week Very friendly, helpful... More

This place was expensive for what it was - a windowless room with just a bed and a bathroom off it but then everywhere we looked up on Ko lipe was expensive unless you want to go for a beach hut (my boyfriend was worried about security which is why we didn't go for one of those) and at least...

Overprised hotel with very friendly staff and bad cleaning. The location is good: 3 minutes walking to Sunrise Beach and 3 minutes to Walking Street. Sunset beach is a 10 min walk. The price is far to high for what you get. Every day there are sewer flies in the rooms and there's a smell (sewer). The showerhead and walls... More

The room was fine size-wise with an ensuite bathroom. Everything was clean and pleasant even if quite basic. The staff were friendly and helpful and picked us up from near the beach. In terms of value for money I would definitely recommend it. The only downside was the distance to the beaches (which we knew about in advance). It's quite... More

we stay 3 night over the reef hotel, clean room and friendly reception. no much great view from the hotel but it is locate at middle of the island, so you can reach each beach between 5 -10 minute. For me friendly staff service is most important, and the reef staff done a great great job on this. well done
