We stayed here for 3 nights. The room was clean and very comfortable for 3 of us. The breakfast was very tasty. If you want to go snorkeling, you may consider to book with them as they offer cheaper price compare to others in the walking street.

We spent 3 nights at family room with balcony. The room is exactly what they promoted, except the view from our balcony. It is much better because we can see partial seaview. I didn't expect that :) The breakfast is great at Mojo cafe (nice presentation and also taste good). The location is peefect (5-10 min to other beach and far enough from walking street which can be quite noisy on the weekend. The only disadvantage is that there is a mosque next to the hotel and it could disturb you sometimes when they prey. But, overall, I really enjoyed our stay and had a good time there !

We were fortunate to stay here for a week in March, just days before they were forced to shut because of the current crisis the world has. What an absolute diamond of a hotel. We generally try and avoid staying at hotels if we can as prefer smaller more private accomodations. The best decision I made before coming to Koh Lipe was booking our stay here. We stayed in a balcony room overlooking a small road and a mountain. We never got tired of soaking up our surroundings whilst sitting with a Chang on the balcony. The breakfast which was included in our price has to have a special mention. It was just oustanding. This was by far the most pleasant breakfast experience we have ever had when staying in a hotel. Whoever choses the music every morning has seriously good taste. The breakfast itself was just as amazing as the music choice. You have a choice of about six options. Beautifully and carefully presented and cooked. I really cannot say enough how much breakfast time was such a lovely experience in every way. The staff clearly have care and enthusiasm for thier jobs here. The hotel is perfectly located, quick walking distance to the hub of bars and restaurants and even the beautiful sunrise beach. I dont recommend staying in the thick of it on Walking Street and you neednt spend a fortune staying at hotels on the beaches as The Reef is so close to everything anyway with much more class and style than the expensive hotels dotted along the beaches! I wouldnt hestite in returning to stay if I every go back to Koh Lipe. Thanks to the whole team for giving us long lasting memories of a wonderful place. We miss being here!

We stayed here for four nights. Everything is within walking distance. Walking street 2 minutes. Sunrise beach 5 minutes. Sunset beach 15 minutes. Pattaya beach 10 minutes. The room was smallish in a small courtyard. But the reception area and bar were gorgeous, bright and airy. The breakfasts are amazing, the best in Thailand. Koh Lipe is the most amazing place in Thailand. Powder white sand with crystal blue seas. Hard work getting there but so worth the journey.

The reef is a perfect spot to unwind and discover Koh Lipe. We had a very pleasant stay and enjoyed its beauty a lot. The location is perfect and the service excellent. Hidden in a bit of a side street you get quiet nights but still you are close enough to the beach and the walking street. The hotel provides even a motorcycle shuttle to smoothen your travelling with your big bags. Ps. The breakfast served at Café Mojo is amazing.
