“Don't stay here!!”
Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

We booked this over Internet unseen and unfortnally for 9 Days. Its overpriced and the bungalows are disqusting for the Price. We have lived better for 400 bath excluded aircon in same time period i.e. peakseason. We paid 3500 bath for this bungalow with aircon.

The staff is so rude, ignorant, lazy and unwelcoming. They didn't welcome us at all and they didn't clean the room until we asked them to do so even if they Said they Will do it Every second day. Evertimes they just made the bed and we had to ask again to make them clean the bathroom, and ask them again to empty the trash bin!!!
We hardly seen anyone from the staff smile and we have never ever met more incompetent and unfriendly staff.

The room include nothing more than a bed, no furniture at all. The floor is made by wood and have centimeter of Space between the planks, a highway for mosquitos. The bathroom is really in bad condition and not clean no hot shower. We and our nighbours had rats in it. The resort doesnt have a safetybox. They have some bungalows in better condition but still not worth the Price.

We are used to live in this standard of bungalows but not for this Price

Under our stay 2 couples left the pre paid bungalows becuse they couldnt stand the conditons.

Worth to say is that the bungalows is nice on the outside and the position on the Beach is perfect.

Dont stay at this resort is our recomendation. You Can find so much better for this Price or below. Best regards from Sweden.

Koh Lipe is a great spot and these new bungalows offer great value for money and are jointly owned and managed by a local group of families - whilst basic the bungalows are clean and functional. The bathroom is a little dark, but has flush toilets and the shower is only cold water but then again it's very hot!
They are located at the quieter end of the beach and the sand and water is just outstanding, you can snorkel just off the beach. The new Sealon restaurant on the beach offers great breakfast and lunch options and I think by next year dinner will be offered in a similar way to many other beach resorts.The beach is literally steps away and the resort has sun loungers and parasols available - you will need your own beach towels.
We had 6 nights here and loved it - Lipe is very special but may change soon, we were surprised by how busy it was and the constant long boat noise can be an issue - walking street is great and there are so many little eating places to choose from.

After a disastrous first night on Lipe (we stayed near Mia Luna a ridiculuously loud bar) we went searching for a place to stay. Sealon is at the far end of Pattaya beach (next to Daya) , the very quiet end, no noise at all at night. Sometimes a little noise from next doors dive compressor in the day, but not intrusive. There are about 10 sturdy wooden bungalows in two little rows facing each other and then towards the sea. The beach here really is fantastic (and we have been travelling 8 months in SEA). White white powdery sand and turquoise water. It is possible to swim all day though not deep at low tide. Good snorkelling offshore. The bungalow was basic but fine. Bathroom wasn't great but adequate. For this location 1000 baht was very good we thought. We spent a lot of time lazing around on our balcony or on the sunloungers on the beach (literally 10m away). There are also parasols. The restaurant food was good, we mainly had lunches there, it is not really set up for evening when other nearby places do good fish BBQ's. The family who run it are nice enough but keep themselves to themselves, mainly asleep under the tree. The other end of Pattaya beach has a few bars which can be noisy. I think Lipe is still stunning and mostly quiet. Come here soon though, before it is too late, in a couple of years time I fear it will be getting more like Phi Phi.
