Reviewed November 10, 2012

we stayed at Daya Resort for 3 nights in early November. We where lucky to get one of the beach front bungalows, where you can sit in the shadow on the veranda under the trees. The Daya is located on the end of Pattaya Beach, where it is not so noisy as futher up. Unfortunately, the rooms need a decent cleaning. The bed are rather sub standard, our one even broke down in the middle of the night, but we fixxed it our selve the next day. The Beach BBQ with freshly catched fish was nice and reasonable priced. We enjoyed the snorkeling trip for 650 Baht pp.

We arrived in this beautifull Island,but we was really unlucky to find our accomodation...
the big mistake was no booking in advance,all nice hotels were fully booked,so we walk down the beach and find an accomodation on Daya resort....
We pay 1200 bath for a beach front bungalow:outside looked ok...but insede was terrible.
The bungalows was stinky and rotten,all inside was old,dirty...the bed was broken and matress you can feel springs.The bathroom was not usable cause too stinky..on the back of the bungalow have all black water coming from the near hut..even on the beach you can not stay because the wind blows this nice smell all around.
We stay one night and we left in the early morning this nightmare place,my girl didnt sleep for all the night cause scarry from bugs walking out from the toilet into the room.
A place like this is not acceptable even for 100 bath.
Stay away from this place!!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the beach are old stinky and rotten!

I'm giving the accommodation a 4 star based on what you get for the price which is a little over £10 a night for 2, a steal. It seems that Koh Lipe is a relatively expensive Thai island and that it's difficult to get rooms for 500 baht a night which is what I paid here (the closest, nice bungalows were just behind Pattaya beach, Billa Beach, for 700 baht. If I returned I'd probably book there, but the average seems to be 1000 baht min).

The brick bungalows are basic, with a shower-loo situation rather than a flush, which meant a few flies and ants, but this all added to the authentic/rustic charm. We had one about 20 metres from the glorious Pattaya beach and overlooking a pretty garden. You're given fresh towels as often as you need them, though seeing these reviews I'm disappointed I wasn't offered free coffee in the morning! I did also have to ask for my room to be cleaned - once done it was fine but I'm not sure they would have done it all during my 5 night stay had I not asked at all.

The bungalows are located at the end of the beach where it starts to get quieter, which is nice if you want a retreat from the hustle and bustle. It's not a long walk to Walking Street and the restaurants/bars on the beach itself, where all the action happens. Because Pattaya beach is the busiest (though in my view the prettiest, if you don't want rocks), it's nice to have a quiet corner of it yet remaining close to all that you need, and liveliness as and when you desire it.

My main complaint was that it wasn't the friendliest of places to stay, and sometimes even had a bit of a strange atmosphere. I didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening for example, as I didn't really like the vibe.

Other than that though I really recommend this as a budget option for travellers and holidaymakers alike. No luxury, obviously, but great price in a great spot.

NB I almost forgot....waking up to the cockerel at about 6.15am I actually found rather lovely (and would rather do than sleep on hol) but bewarned of the gacking (for want of a better word) man/men at the same time. Lasts just as long but a trillion times less pleasant. The horrible spitting from back of your throat/lungs that only men seem to be able to do thing. I wish I'd mentioned it to them. GROSS.

We wandered around Sunrise beach for an hour trying to look for a cheap, nice place to stay, but the cheapest we could find was 1000baht a night. So we decided to look at Pattaya Beach we tried nearly every Guest House, Hotel etc.. but still the prices were higher than we wanted to Pay. After getting to the end of the Beach we saw Daya Resort as it was the last place we thought well we might as well just ask we thought as it is on the beach they wont have any cheap accommodation but to our surprise they had brick bungalows for 500Baht a night. The Resort is right on the beach, the Bungalows are decent sized and clean the bathroom could do with sprucing up a bit and it did have a stench in it apart from that it was fine. They have nice terraces with chairs so you can relax outside. They have a choice of the Brick bungalows and Wooden Huts which were higher priced but still very reasonable. They give you free Tea or Coffee every Morning this was great.

It is about 20mins walk to the Main Street, Walking Street but its a lovely walk along the nice sandy beach past all the lit up bars they all close around 12pm so it is very quiet and Peaceful here. Would recommend to stay here.

This part of the beach is much more quiet than the rest of Pattaya Beach. There are no more cheap Beach Huts at Koh Lipe directly at the beach.
Daya Resort is one of the oldest here at Lipe and also has build up concrete wooden Bungalows instead of the cosy Bamboo ones who have been here years before.
For travelling on a budget Daya can be your choice. Beach Front Bungalow is 1000 Baht (1500 in very High Season), behind is about 500 Baht and you can bargain when you stay longer.

The Bungalows are not very clean and the personal is like Thais are - a little bit unfriendly, it takes time to get a smile sometimes. But in front of Daya is the desk of a girl called Nee where you can book Snorkeling Tours. She is very nice and friendly and she will help you if you need something!

Also eating at Daya is what you can do there but be aware its just the BBQ fish why people came here!

After wandering around Sunset and Sunrise beach for about 2 hours trying to look for a cheap, nice place to stay, we stumbled upon a family run guesthouse - Daya Resort. We haden't thought about inquiring here because the prices listed in the Lonely Planet were ~1000 baht/night. However, the first price quoted to us was 300 baht/night for a double bed - perfect for my sister and I!

The rooms were very basic but clean. The staff offered us free tea and coffee during our stay and at night, the kitchen would cook fresh fish on the beach's bbq from the day's catch.

Overall, I had a great experience at Daya Resort and cannot think of any negative comments.
