“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We booked in advance gipsy resort for 8 nights, but after reading the latest reviews here we were very scared about what to expect.

BUT! It is now almost night number 4 and what can I say, it is great.. We (still) have View beach bungalow (V1) and this one is really amazing, the sea is within 5 meters, the bathroom is partly open air (there is some cover for the toilet), we didn't have problems with the shower (there is water coming out, which it is not warm, but definetely not really cold! We have a sink (with water dripping out, but there multiple other water supplies in the bathroom area to get some water). The beds are good, the fan is working properly and because it is always windy the heat is getting out of the room before you go to sleep, there is also a mosquito net in the room.

About the owner, he is a Spanish guy and is really nice and helpfull (the same goes for the rest of the crew). Our breakfast (which is not included) from the restaurant (15 meters away) is brought to our veranda, the same for drinks :)
When we arrived our room was not clean yet, due to a lot of checkouts that day, and the owner apologized for 5 times (so we waited for 20 minutes with a cold drink).

I am not sure how the other bungalows are, but this one is really amazing and for the price of only 1100 baht it is really heaven on earth!

Room Tip: Definetely pick bungalow V1

1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

The resort is absolutely well setted on the beach, directly on sunset beach and just few minutes walking from the walking street, but it is overpriced for for the service and comfort offert by the resort.
750 bath for bamboo bungalow with a fatiscent bathroom where hot water comes and not every time you want to have a shower! No flow on the shower.
We been here for two days, but we meet lot of people that said us that in the walking you can have a room with airco emwith 300 bath x days, with nice and well furnished bathroom. No cleaning or change for our towells in 2 days, absolutely overpriced! Also the manager are both unfriendly and I suspected they was triyng to move the price up, cause the rest of resort in the beach were full except than them.
I m sure I m not come back here anymore!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

We arrived unexpectedly on Koh Lipe 2 days earlier than planned. We stumbled upon the Gipsy Resort and booked a 950 bht/night bungalow with porch, fan and private bath for 2 nights. I peaked into the bungalow and accepted what I saw as it was only a couple of days, I should have looked further into the bathroom. Where was the sink? Nope, no sink found, brushing my teeth in the shower that barely dripped water it is. The bungalows are along a very pretty path to the beach with gorgeous flowering shrubs cascading over the bungalows which make the location very inviting. There is a restaurant located on the beach that has the BEST shakes on the island (try the coffee shake) and pretty good food. The staff was also very helpful, kind and friendly. The rooms are small and basic. Be sure to look into the bathrooms if you want a sink and check the water pressure if you like to get wet in the shower. The "resort" is pretty well right on Sunrise beach and close to town.
