The atmosphere is just great. Very lively, energetic and good fun. Positioned halfway up walking street so is well positioned to do anything you want on the island. Love Thai food but after 3 months was a very welcome change to come across a mediterraen chef and a good one at that. Staff were efficient welcoming nothing was too much.... More

Overall, it's value for money. Location: Just around 5min walk from Pattaya Beach and the distance to Sunrise Beach around 5~10min, to Sunset Beach around 20-30min. Service: Although most of staff not able to speak well English, but still able to communicate well. Just need to be patient when listening/speaking. Room: with air-condition, but no TV (not necessary). There is... More

Went here just for the coffee, food and cocktails, all of which were great. Western imported food understandably very pricey. Staff very friendly but a few lads could be a bit more attentive re further orders (this may not suit the laid back atmosphere here though :-) Will happily return.

Room was ok,but no door to bathroom. Wifi horrible,but it aint fast on Ko Lipe overall. The thing i missed,is the lack of space in this so called Tropical garden. U cant sit anywhere,would be nice if they did some effort. Put up a nice table or two with some chairs or a few hammocks atleast. Make it more cosy... More

I knew that the hotel wasn’t at the beach, but the hotel booking site (booking.com) mentioned ‘2 rooftop lounge areas’. Unfortunately these lounges don’t exist (at least I couldn’t find them). So the options where to spend those lazy tropical afternoons are pretty limited. There is no sitting area in front of the rooms. If you want to sit outside... More

The hotel itself looks really cool, the restaurant and grounds are well maintained and the elevated walkway to the rooms all look nice. However, upon entering the room the illusion is shattered. We stayed in room 8 and on arrival there was no bed linen, reception had warned us, however, the mattress was heavily stained and that pretty much set... More

We stayed for 3 nights at The Box in Room 2. The owners and staff were very welcoming and throughout the stay were always aiming to please. The Good - Room was very clean and spacious. It has all the amenities you would expect at this pricepoint. We do recognize that we were traveling over the Christmas holidays and that... More
