“Not far from the Beaches and the nightlife”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Great location and service. Very nice staff. Only the manager at the counter has good english. Very nice and clean room. The internet is so-so meaning sometimes it disconnected, wifi not strong. Breakfeast included which is pretty ok. The hotel is close to everything, store, can also clean your clothes and drug store. Nightlife is walking distance and its not chaos like Phuket. Its very family oriented, family with small kids.

We have seen this hotel on our first stay at Ao Nong one month before. The location and the beauty of the hotel have attracted us. Perfectly placed in the center and quiet because the room was in the beautiful garden behind the street. Minus on the breakfast (simple and not really good), and the WIFI doesn't work well. Friendly staff and helpfull. Fast check in out.

Room Tip: Check the location of the room and don't forget to precise twin or double bed.

We stayed in Tika house with beautiful view.
A lot of walking because the house was on the hill but was worth it.
Minus of this hotel was breakfast.
Big plus-fantastic location in the centre but set back from the busy street.Supermarket on the corner where you can buy almost everything.

The position is good as it is set back from the busy street where there is an array of shops and places to eat and is only about 200 metres from the beach front.
The rooms are clean and wi fi is free and available in the lobby although i found i was able to receive it in my room.
Check in was fairly straight forward but staff not particularly helpful.
When you arrive check your room to make sure that all the items supplied by them are actually there. There is a price list of charges for anything missing at the end of your stay. We did not do this and we were told we must pay for missing laundry bag which we had never seen and they were a bit unpleasant when we refused to do so and only accepted that we did not have it when we asked them to search our bags.
The restaurant used for breakfast was very bleak and the food uninspiring. Plenty of places to eat in the evenings outside.

Room Tip: It is best to avoid ground floor room as you have no view or sunshine. We chose what is known as th...

We've just stayed 2 nights en route to Ko Lanta. We've read the other recent reviews.
All are true in their own ways:
Definitely not a place to stay if you want to chill out and relax, enjoying on site amenities, good food and some luxury.
A more than acceptable place to stay if you want a relatively inexpensive base which has nice rooms (interconnecting if you want) is set back a bit from the town so quite private, yet only 3 minutes walk to Ao Nang beach.
I wouldn't stay more than 2 or 3 days here, I wouldn't eat here, I wouldn't swim here: but I wasn't really planning to given its location.
Would we stay again? I very much doubt it, but then I don't see us staying on Ao Nang Beach again.

Room Tip: Up the hill behind the swimming pool.

Absolutely wonderfully, Krabi was a very nice surprise, TIPA Resort was perfectly placed with many eating places and shops virtually at your door step and yet it is set far enough back from the street to give you a noiseless sleep, the staff were very polite and helpful (speak slowly and clear will help). Thank to Air One Aviation in Singapore, for a great suggestion, will definitely be back and will happily stay at TIPA again. The four island tour was the best highlight, feeding thousands of fish by hand while snorkeling was unforgettable , motor scooter hire at 200bht per day is the go, the roads are well signed and in good condition. Great for couples and families. From Melbourne Australia .

Room Tip: Stay main complex for wifi
