Remember the old days in Thailand, when no a/c bungalow were available and it took a couple of days to adjust to dark and spiffy (full of holes) wooden bungalows with straw roofs? well this is such a place twenty years on, with hardly any maintenance work done to the property.
What has changed is the cost, in 2007 those bungalows went for 100 and 200 bath, now they are close to 1000 in just 5 years! I dont think it cost more to run them, and considering the sharp increase in tourism, the profit seem to have gone in building 6 more bungalows near the restaurant that rent for even more, failing to upgrade the exhisting ones.
On the plus side this resort was often chosen by Lipe regulars because of its location on sunrise beach about 20 or so bungalows stretch on the best and pictoresque beach on lipe shaded by pine trees, very often getting the night breeze to keep you fresh while you sleep. Is 20 minutes walk from bar and restaurants on the paved road to pattaya beach.
The alternative to stay close to this beach is mountain resort, just above through a steep staircase, if staying there ask for the best view when you book though around 3000 bath.
Otherwise try to lower your standard and enjoy Andaman.More
