We been staying at deluxe sea view room in Mountain resort for 2 night. Good view and good beach. very relexing place. If you just want to have a stay with amazing view and clean room, then mountain resort definitely is your first choice. they provide shuttle from 6.00PM to 9.30PM everyday to the walking street. we happy with this service, but its good to improve to make customer more convenient to travel around the island. the island hoping package is around 1800 baht to 2000 baht for a boat that can fit up to 7 person. But we went to Koh Lipe on May 2013, due to bad weather and almost off peak, we not manage to join any tour. try to avoid off peak season as many shop is closed. :( , during our trip, half of the shop in the walking is closed!

But just like all other review, we are not very happy with their services. firstly, we reach at 11am and we been ask to wait until 2pm to checked in while we aware that the room is available and the staff just take too long to clean up. :( and during our visit, the resort is having expanding construction work, construction worker is everywhere and this is a bit annoying. on our first day, their staff knock our door at 7am morning to wake us up LOL, to deliver the breakfast, and this is a wrong delivery! and, they come back to inform us and collect it back at 8.30AM. :( second day, no room services. we went out and we come back, our room stay untidy. haha. buy we saw 2 extra compliment bottle of water in our balcony.

as a conclusion, i will say this is a good resort run by guest house owner! They need improvement in their hos[itality in order to move on to bcome a better/ the best resort in Koh Lipe someday. no doubt, they have the best room view in Koh Lipe!

Room Tip: try the deluxe sea view room - i think this room have the best room view in Koh Lipe.

I consider it fair to bring up the pros before the cons. This resort has a beautiful beach and a wonderful view from the lobby. The room I stayed in was very new and had a working air condition unit (something very important as May temperatures are so high). They also had quite a variety of food for the buffet breakfast which consisted of both elements of an American breakfast and some Thai dishes. The green curry was very tasty.

Now for the cons. The staff in general clearly lacked proper training. Upon arrival on the island, there was no luggage carrying service or bellboy. We had to walk a considerable amount before reaching their shuttle vehicle. My friends and I went on a snorkeling tour booked through the resort in advance but the resort did not have any snorkeling gear for us to rent. Going to a dive shop to rent the gear was a waste of time and was inconvenient. The room was never cleaned while I was there for three nights. Shuttle service to the night market was only available until 9:30PM. I booked the return transportation (ferry and van) and paid for it through the resort but had to pay extra for the van upon arrival at the pier. There's something fishy going on here.

Last but not least, the ferry the resort had booked for us, Lipe Ferry and Speedboat, had even worse service. They had no regard for safety as the number of passengers on the boat had clearly exceeded the written maximum capacity by a considerable margin. Thank goodness the vessel did not capsize. The lead staff in charge of the tickets was also extremely rude and did not care about customer satisfaction. I look forward to seeing this company getting its operating license revoked.

I went for koh lipe in last 4 days, there view is very nice and enjoyable over there.
Even though the Mountain resort hotel is very far distance with immigration centre, but we
can take a taxi boat over the sea, and went over there.
So far the hotel is very nice service still have snorkeling package just the English language a bit poor for them and the breakfast of hotel is very delicious to enjoy it in the morning, specially "curry chicken''....

If you are not coming with a tour group, then no one will take care of you. From the escorting driver to the lobby to the waiters.. well, except the bell boy that would take care of you only when they want some tips!! Not worth my money at all!! Just good location and view but resort service offered me nothing good! They didnt pick my family up from pier upon arrival because they thought there's no guests left and it took like an hour to come back picking me with actually 10-minute drive from where i am to the resort.
They kept me waiting for an hour for the dinner cause they were cooking for a tour group and not informed me anything till i cancelled an hour after, they hadnt even started cooking my order then they talked so badly to me when i cancelled but i couldnt wait no more!!!
Wont suggest to anyone!!

I went to Koh Lipe in November 2012 with a group of friend. we stayed at Moutain Resort. We got to know about Moutain Resort from a friend who stayed the resort and given us good review about it. The resort was facing a paranomic sea view, which truly amazed us during our arrival at the check in counter. you can enjoy the view during your morning buffet breakfast too. we stayed in bungalow villa, accommodate 6 ppl in a double storey bungalow. the room is very clean, bed very comfortable, and feel so warm under their comfortable blanket.love their bathroom. they provide 2 toilet in 1 room. Very good service, all the worker there very helpful , friendly and polite. They will try their very best to fulfill all our request. This is what I must appraise them. We feel like home during our stay.The resort located a bit far from the walking street but I feel more private,no worry,they provide transport to the walking street. Even though I never stay in other hotel in Koh Lipe before, I still would strongly recommend Mountain Resort and will back to this resort during my future visit.

We stayed two nights at this hotel. We picked this hotel based on price and not on comments. The hotel itself is situated away from busy areas such as Pattaya beach and Sun rise beach where there are many hotels and boats. We took the speedboat from Langkawi and arrived on main beach (Pattaya) where the immigration office is. After got back our passports, we took a long tail boat to this hotel and upon our arrival, we were stunned by the view and colour of the sea and how quiet the place was (Amazing!!!!) There were far less tourists on this part of the island. There was a complimentary car from the hotel to walking street every nights ( free of charge) from 18:30 to 21:00pm. Breakfast was nothing special. Ah, this place gets very packed during peak seasons (Nov. - Apr.) please avoid! Overall: RECOMMENDED!
