Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The best place about this place is probably the vibe. The manager was very warm and welcoming. The food was overall very good. The meat ball wasn’t heated well before being served to us. The center was still cold. Other than that it was all good. Would definitely go back there but will probably not order the meatballs again 😄

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Box for just 2 nights but we wish we stayed longer. It’s a nice spot if you’d like to be right off walking street. It is amazingly not noisy in the rooms because it is set back from the restaurant and walking street and surrounded by jungle. The rooms are cozy and have good style for a basic room. The bathroom is spacious! The restaurant is bustling at night for good reason. The food is incredible, if you’re looking for a change from Thai food. Everything was delicious and presentation was beautiful, even breakfast. The staff and the owner, Havi, are all so friendly. This gave it a welcoming, family vibe for our first landing in Koh Lipe. They even helped transport us to our next accommodation for free. Even if you are not able to stay in the rooms because there are not many, I recommend the restaurant for a nice dinner out!

spent eight nights at this lovely little resort on walking street. Very nice the driveway to reach the rooms like the whole structure. Room very clean and comfortable for a good quality sleep. There is also a good restaurant with Mediterranean cuisine and a bar for pleasant aperitifs. Very convenient to reach all the main beaches of the beautiful Koh Lipe. But what really makes the stay unique is the staff. Always smiling, extremely available and friendly and attentive to the customer. A special thanks to Pey with whom we made a nice friendship. We felt at home and therefore highly recommend it to those lucky enough to visit this beautiful island.

Very good ubication, we went my wife, our 2 year old son and me. It was attended by owners, always taking care of us. Staff at restaurant also speak amazing spanish ( si eres español o latino). Rooms are cozy, clean, not to big, but enough if you are just using it for sleeping, shower and resting. All staff were very helpfull and happy all time! WE THANK ALL OF YOU FOR A GREAT CHRISTMAS VACATION ! Did I say the food at restaurant is great? Also in the center of main street but rooms are on the side that is calm so rooms are very quiet😃. And 3 min walk to beach.

We had a group of around 20 people over Chinese New Year eat at The Box. Not only was the food great, but the service for 20 people spot on!! Thank you for a memorable time. And a big thank you to Jabi ( hope I spelled the name correctly) for making it happen!!

I looked at staying at The Box hotel however it was full for the dates I needed. Having seen the rave reviews for food I decided to check it out, in short the food was wonderful. If you fancy a change from Thai food The Box would be my recommendation. They even sell sangria which was a nice surprise. We went for the tapas and had 5 dishes to share between 2 of us which was plenty and the food was very good quality. The staff were also very friendly and funny!

Been to this place several times over the years, and they still manage to deliver high quality international cuisine. Few places manage the tuna test i.e. being able to deliver a rare tuna steak with a red core, but this place does ( together with 11 moons and Serendipity. You may however want to make sure, and emphasise ‘extra rare’, when ordering. Nice jack fish ceviche to, even though it more resembles the tuna tartar, than a Peruvian ceviche with white meat dorado marinated in lime. Good wagyue beef, but it’s served Spanish style , just with vegetables and no sauce ( neither bbq or wine sauce). Thick juicy burgers. Also a great number of Spanish tapas. Decent house wine for 700 per bottle.

Great location, really pleasant and clean rooms, but the thing that makes this such a good place to stay are the staff. All of the people are incredibly helpful and generous with their time and advice. The location is perfect. Not too far to walk from the beach and it is close to the convenient store that's sells cheap beers, groceries and even fresh fruits and vegetables! All the major sights are all in walking distance (even the tuktuk place is nearby). The room was not big but it was fine. The breakfast was nice. Even if it is central (center of Walking Street of Lipe), it is still quiet. The service was very good.
