Found this place online after days of searching through overpriced hotels on Sunrise Beach. This place is very basic - the room is built of wood and the floors are wooden planks nailed together. We stayed in a second row bungalow - still very close to the beach and we could hear the waves crashing at night. The bed is decent and big enough for two. Fan and cold water shower but the shower is spacious. 1800 baht in peak season is a bit pricey - you can get the same on Koh Phangnan for half the price.
The staff - very friendly and accommodating. Always had smiles on their faces and were just genuinely nice.
The restaurant - one of the best on Lipe. We tried a few others on walking street but they didn't compare to Zanom. Try the grilled squid - it's fantastic.
They have free wifi but it's very spotty at best. My iPhone could get the signal most of the time. My Macbook could not get a signal all week, while my wife's iPad got a good signal throughout our stay.
The beach - beautiful but windy during high season for some reason. There is snorkeling off the beach but it's not great. Best to go on one of the tours.
I'd stay here again - great food, and the view can't be beat!More
