The food is excellent. Good wines and tapas, trendy popular spot. The rooms are cozy and sweet. The owner personally escorted us from the mainland all the way to the island. The hotel/bar/resto staff are all extremely friendy and sweet. I felt all my things where very secure. English or Spanish speakers will feel at home here too. Its in... More

Overpriced for what it is, essentially shipping containers converted into rooms. Uncomfortable bedding, doors are sliding balcony doors, not really doors, and never seem to close well so I was always concerned about my things. No safe provided in the room either. Also, the box is both a restaurant and a hotel so you often find yourself competing for space... More

I have eaten at The Box a lot, and have never had a less than wonderful experience. The tapas menu is diverse and reasonably priced (Pata Negra is amazing), and the burger has got to be one of the best on the island! The staff are so attentive and thoughtful, and always make sure everything is up to standard. One... More

Room is cleaned and makes me sleep tight. The owner and staffs are very friendly and kind. They told me how to go where i want e.g. diving. Price is ok. It's a good location. U have 3 choices of breakfast. It's delicious. The great bar where i really like is so good. I'll come back there again.

It has a great bar and great staff. Rooms were clean, with a fridge, shower and aircon, but very plain decor and the blanket smelt like it hadn't been washed, so we changed it. I expected more for the price, £40 per night... Koh Lipe is awesome though.

Stayed here a couple of nights and quite enjoyed it. Location is great on the main road and just a couple of minutes from Pattaya and Sunrise Beach. Rooms are OK, a bit dark and could be a bit cleaner. But in general everything was OK. Wifi only in restaurant area and not in the rooms. Breakfast was included but... More

Went to the box with four friends the other night. Saw that mojitos were on special that night as written on a blackboard so we ordered a round and they were delicious.

Hello Dear I feel sorry for this confusion. On the black board is written the time happy hour. And I think you did not see. The time is clearly written on both sides of the table. I have the feeling that you just saw the one behind the bar. I appreciate your honest opinion and at least I am happy... More
