Worth for the price you pay, i stay at Deluxe aircond room, room are clean & spacious! Although it need to walk for a distance when u arrive at Pattaya beach, but it is very close to Sunset beach, if you prefer more relax & quiet environment, i strongly recommend your choose The Reef, and the hotel self provide island hopping package and got discount summore, I'm so satisfied with the hotel i stay at, really much enjoy =]

Stayed here for 1 week and had a very good time. The location is convenient for quickly reaching all the beaches, but we covered the windows to not look outside. All you see is construction sites. The air conditioning is a life saver since, being a bit far from the beach, you don't get much air. Taking a shower requires a little prayer beforehand, sometimes water comes out, other times not really. In this case just wait a bit and try again.
All in all, great price, convenient location. You get what you pay for.

Our group of six had been travelling for over 24 hours by the time we arrived at Koh Lipe. But when you arrive it is worth it. The Reef hotel offer a pick-up service from the immigration hut on the Pattaya Beach, but we thought we would walk it..... I advise to take advantage of this service. Lugging backpacks and suitcases over sandy tracks, over boggy puddles and up a hill is no easy feat.

Once there we were made to feel welcome. The staff are all so fantastic, helpful and friendly. Breakfast is basic - eggs any style with bacon, etc. but it is nice. Rooms are clean with big firm beds TV and air-con with stocked minibar. There are a few dozen TV channels, but no English. But the reception offer a choice of a few hundred DVDs.
The owners were there and seem proud of what they have built - and they should be.

Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Ko Lipe, what can I say. It is a little hard to get to but once you have stayed here for a few nights you will love it. Only pack your t-shirts, shorts, flip flops and your suncream that is all you will need. It is a great place to relax.
The Reef is in a great location to access all three beaches and walking street. You can get picked up from the beach to the hotel and this is probably well worth taking them up on this offer as you would not be able to walk with your case.
We had 10 nights here with no complaints at all,all the staff were great. We even had the chance to meet both of the owners while we were there, Simon was one of them but I am sorry I have lost the other guys name for the moment.
The room was spacious with air conditioning and a lovely bathroom. Rooms were cleaned daily and fresh towels every day. You can also have a beach towel if you ask at reception so no need to pack one if you are staying here and each room also has a safe, hair dryer, tv, dvd player with a selection of dvds on reception, digi box Breakfast was served from 7.30 - 10.00 It was a great choice and was freshley prepared for you each morning. Cooked breakfast,fresh fruit, toast, fruit juice, tea coffee, cereals.
A great place to eat is the OMG bar you can see it off the balcony infront of you where you eat your breakfast, also Tigi sea food restaurant on the beach is great to.
I would not hesitate in recomending The Reef to anyone, as everthing was nice here. The lady who looks after you in the morning along with her two beautiful nieces I dont think i have ever seen so many smiles for everyone. Simon was a lovely dutch guy who also helped us out when our 'speedboat turned into a ferry' and we had to leave a day early. Thank you for that - you have a lovely place for travelers to stay and your staff are wonderfull, everyone is full of bright white smiles and nothing is too much trouble. Keep it up and good luck for the future

Room Tip: maybe ask for one at the back of the courtyard

Stayed for 3 nights early April. Check-in was fast however we were supposed to have 3 individual beds instead we got a double bed and a roll away bed. We were inform that Agoda did not inform them(the Reef) that we have 3 guest so they put in the roll away bed last minute. The room we had was small to have 3 ppl staying in. More like 2 guest would be fine.
Other than that the place is pretty decent and cozy. It's a few minutes walk to the 'walking street' and beach(sunrise beach).
Would recommend this place if you are on a budget.
