Friendly staffs, good cleanliness. Spent 3D2N in Koh Lipe, the Reef is strategically located at the end of walking street... Easily access to most of the tourist spots, 10min walk to Pattaya Beach by passing through the walking street, 5min walk to the Sunrise Beach... Good services, with complimentary breakfast, free drinking water (in bottle) everyday, and free taxi transfer... More

The staff at The Reef were really nice and very helpful. Delicious breakfast, with your choice of eggs, ham/bacon, yoghurt, cereal and fresh fruit. We had... More

If you are looking for a comfortable and good location resort,it is The Reef Resort. Not in the walking street but very near to it. You can enjoy your shopping or dining at walking street several time in a day. The staff are super nice and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable.

Stayed here for 1 week and had a very good time. The location is convenient for quickly reaching all the beaches, but we covered the windows to not look outside. All you see is construction sites. The air conditioning is a life saver since, being a bit far from the beach, you don't get much air. Taking a shower requires... More

The Reef hotel offer a pick-up service from the immigration hut on the Pattaya Beach, but we thought we would walk it..... I advise to take advantage of this service. Lugging backpacks and... More

Ko Lipe, what can I say. It is a little hard to get to but once you have stayed here for a few nights you will love it. Only pack your t-shirts, shorts, flip flops and your suncream that is all you will need. It is a great place to relax. The Reef is in a great location to access... More
