Gipsy Resort
Reviewed March 17, 2013

I stayed 6 nights - first in a concrete bungalow with a huge, spotless bathroom and then moved to a bamboo bungalow. Both bungalows had mosquito nets, good quality bedding and towels, sinks in the bathrooms, mirrors, great hammocks and comfortable beds.The bungalows are a good size with useful shelves and hanging space and seating on the verandas.
The food in the restaurant was very good and the staff were very friendly. Run by Roberto and assisted from dawn til late at night by his Thai staff, they are a fun bunch but will give you plenty of privacy if you want it.They are also very happy to help you practice some Thai and were patient with my rubbish accent.
Ignore the bad reviews - there are NO bedbugs here. It's a great resort and extremely good value for money. I will stay there again if I return to Lipe.

We had a very nice and priceworthy Bungalow on the beach just 10 meters from the sea. The bungalow was clean, half of the bathroom was under open sky so we had a cat as a extra feature wisiting us occasionally. There was only a rather small blanket in the king size bed so we didnot sleep that good. The restaurang and the service was just avrage.

It would be very hard to think of a better location, the staff were very friendly the big problem was the facilities. Our concrete bungalow was not n need of a complete overhaul and a deep clean. There were cockroaches in the bathroom, no warm water and not even a sink to wash in. Friends who had a Hughes problem with bedbugs which entailed an expensive visit to doctors. This place could be paradise but some serious investment is urgently required.

We booked in advance gipsy resort for 8 nights, but after reading the latest reviews here we were very scared about what to expect.

BUT! It is now almost night number 4 and what can I say, it is great.. We (still) have View beach bungalow (V1) and this one is really amazing, the sea is within 5 meters, the bathroom is partly open air (there is some cover for the toilet), we didn't have problems with the shower (there is water coming out, which it is not warm, but definetely not really cold! We have a sink (with water dripping out, but there multiple other water supplies in the bathroom area to get some water). The beds are good, the fan is working properly and because it is always windy the heat is getting out of the room before you go to sleep, there is also a mosquito net in the room.

About the owner, he is a Spanish guy and is really nice and helpfull (the same goes for the rest of the crew). Our breakfast (which is not included) from the restaurant (15 meters away) is brought to our veranda, the same for drinks :)
When we arrived our room was not clean yet, due to a lot of checkouts that day, and the owner apologized for 5 times (so we waited for 20 minutes with a cold drink).

I am not sure how the other bungalows are, but this one is really amazing and for the price of only 1100 baht it is really heaven on earth!

Room Tip: Definetely pick bungalow V1

The resort is absolutely well setted on the beach, directly on sunset beach and just few minutes walking from the walking street, but it is overpriced for for the service and comfort offert by the resort.
750 bath for bamboo bungalow with a fatiscent bathroom where hot water comes and not every time you want to have a shower! No flow on the shower.
We been here for two days, but we meet lot of people that said us that in the walking you can have a room with airco emwith 300 bath x days, with nice and well furnished bathroom. No cleaning or change for our towells in 2 days, absolutely overpriced! Also the manager are both unfriendly and I suspected they was triyng to move the price up, cause the rest of resort in the beach were full except than them.
I m sure I m not come back here anymore!

We arrived unexpectedly on Koh Lipe 2 days earlier than planned. We stumbled upon the Gipsy Resort and booked a 950 bht/night bungalow with porch, fan and private bath for 2 nights. I peaked into the bungalow and accepted what I saw as it was only a couple of days, I should have looked further into the bathroom. Where was the sink? Nope, no sink found, brushing my teeth in the shower that barely dripped water it is. The bungalows are along a very pretty path to the beach with gorgeous flowering shrubs cascading over the bungalows which make the location very inviting. There is a restaurant located on the beach that has the BEST shakes on the island (try the coffee shake) and pretty good food. The staff was also very helpful, kind and friendly. The rooms are small and basic. Be sure to look into the bathrooms if you want a sink and check the water pressure if you like to get wet in the shower. The "resort" is pretty well right on Sunrise beach and close to town.
