Blue tribes was great value for a beach front property on Koh lipe ..... Very basic ammenities - no air conditioning in bungalow. Lovely staff members and relaxed atmosphere at end of beach but 2 min walk down the beach to walking st. Bundhaya ferry right next door so very convenient location for island hopping.

We had a lovely two week stay at The Blue Tribes. It has the most fantastic location - just by the water. The owner Luca and the staff were very nice, and they were really nice to our kids. The bungalow, we stayed in, was perfect. There is no aircon, but after 2 nights thats really not a problem -...

this hotel has a great location - directly on Pattaya beach next to everything ! Its an eco place, with a nice garden. The garden and the restaurant are the centre point. No luxury, no warm shower, no daily room cleaning - just eco - but what you need more on LIPE !! prizes are reasonable and the restaurant is...

I love these places they remind me of the good old days where trying to hard didnt matter because you were in such an amazing location the weather was hot and the beer was cold. We had large clean bungalow literally on the beach, amazing sunsets, hammocks, charming service and wifi which these days is great. The price was so...

Old school vibes and a spacious well appointed bungalow right on the beach made this great value for money. The duplex looked fantastic would try that next time. Their beach bar was not operational probably a blessing as it was very close. Usual patchy service but I love that as much as I love the hilarious spelling mistakes on the...

It was amazing to wake up to the transparent waters of the Lipe coast, and the white sandy beach right on our doorstep. But. But but. A fan is just not enough. I do understand that air conditioning is not very 'green', but we just sweated and sweated all night long. With four of us in the beach garden bungalow,...

This is a beautiful spot on the beach, with lots of local scenery with all the longtail boats and fishermen. But it was rather dissapointing. Rooms worn out. We had to ask for them to clean it, they didnt do it themselves. Girls who worked there didnt even at any point bother to say Hello or good morning. The just...

We wereshocked how basic this hotel was. There is nothing in the room bar a bed and a small hall table, (which has seen better days) with no drawers. Bathroom is a challenge. Toilet was spewing out water when we arrived, but they stopped the water within the hour, however the toilet seat was never fixed all the time we...

Resort has very few English speaking staff during the day, so if you need help or direction on what to do then you have to visit other places. I'd say use the free wifi to do your research but it doesn't really work. There are too many dogs around the dining area - one scratch a tick on to my...

Fair price, good location at one end of Pattaya beach, where boats come and go all the time. The lush garden is very nice and the place is cozy. Get yourself to a quieter beach if you want to swim. Good restaurants on the beach near Blue Tribes, so didn't try their food, and the allure of cocktails on Walking...
