I stayed 2 nights there... it is really well located... By the sunrise beach and at one side of the walking street.. The bungalows are nice and even if i was the farest possible from the beach it remains a good option.. The only negative points are the lack if charm of this 70 -80 bungalows in one place...

We stay in the new building, thus, everything inside the room are new. The aircon is very cold also. the resort is conveniently located beside the walking street where you can find food, 711 stores and restaurant. The downside is the breakfast. Not much variety and must go very early, if you go after 9am, left only pancake, bread and... More

I went every morning but only had the fruit which is always pineapple and water melon. I used there laundry service which is twice as much as anywhere else on... More

The Varin on Pattaya Beach is a big, overpriced, mass tourism destination. V-rin's on Sunrise Beach is on a lovely beach with less long tail boats, roped areas to swim safely, bars, restaurants and lots of tourists posturing and posing with their cameras enjoying the view in their own obsessional way. This eventually caused us to leave our beachfront bamboo... More

We came here for a valentines break. Staff were friendly until they asked for our passports as deposit. Obviously we were uncomfortable as no one likes parting from their passport. Next to our room was construction and no one wants to have their sleepy dictated by construction on holiday! When we explained we wanted a swap they got angry and... More

This resort have bad maintenance. During our stay, there has been no housekeeping, the accommodation seems to be very unpleasing especially the price considering if I pay a night in Nepal or Korea, I get 4-5 times better in terms of comfort, service and environment. Even the wifi in NOT FREE. You have to pay RM30 (300 bath) for 24-hours... More

Sadly, this hotel is located in one of the best locations on Koh Lipe & DONT THEY KNOW IT. Five star rates over the "Festival Season" with -5 Star service. Don't hand your passport over at checkin, they reluctantly offer a 500Bht deposit instead of the passport which you get back when you check out, again reluctantly. Don't expect to... More

We stay here for 3 nights for company trip. Overall the resort is quite ok... Hotel room is small but it's clean. There is no housekeeping everyday and therefore we have to tidy up our room and keep our room clean. Air-cond is not too cold and the water heater also not too function well but still ok. Walking Street... More

The staff, meaning even the front desk, displayed very base and immoral behavior of which they should be ashamed. After very blatantly cheating me out of a small amount of money, they threatened me with violence, gangster-style, when I complained. It is my guess that many positive reviews are unaware of being ripped off, don't mind being ripped off, or... More
