Jack's is just plain awesome. The people who run it are great, the place itself is well-kept, clean, and beautifully laid-out, and it's just a few steps from some of the best snorkelling and swimming on the island.
I got sick the day we moved in (obligatory day of travel sickness, from 6 weeks in SE Asia), and could not have asked for a more comfortable place to convalesce. Beautiful open-air showers, thoughtfully-prepared food and juice brought to your room (with little flower garnishes), and very kind hosts made it a speedy and comfortable recovery. The rest of the time, it was a great base for frolicking around the island, swimming, eating, or shopping. It's a wonder to think that all of Koh Lipe used to look like the land around Jack's, before they cut down the trees. Definitely not a place to be missed, if only for a very good Thai dinner at their restaurant!
