Cool place, nice bungalows, great music on the restaurant, professional and laid back dive center, amazing food. Everything was close to perfect. Noisy neighbors next door, a bar that makes a ton of noise, and the ever present engines from the long tail boats.

Right on the beach.”
The location is perfect. 2 steps and you are on the beach. There isn't much beach during high tide, the water goes up very high, to the edge of the restaurant / bar seating area. You can chill at the restaurant and then go for a dip in the beautiful, clear water. Love the food at the restaurant, fresh, decent price and the staff are friendly. The green curry, phad thai and apple crumble are my favourites. Oh and the lemongrass drink! The single story room has enough space for 2 people. Tastefully decorated. They provide water and change the towels daily. My only problem was the bats on the tress were quite noisy throughout the night...but I got used to it after a while. There are a lot of mosquitos on the island especially when the sun sets. They are very vicious. Luckily there's a mosquito net. Not having hot water was no problem, with the hot weather, a cold shower felt good. All in all, I would definitely recommend this place.

Eco friendly hotel”
Hotel ticks a lot of boxes. Rooms are very well though of and trying to adapt to the area. Reception area, restaurante and chill out area is very nice and staff are very helpful. WiFi was non existing to say the least, but hey you are there to relax so no biggie. Bed is comfy and the way the room is built in a 2nd floor you don’t feel the need for air con, A+ for that. LOVED the shower. Beach area when the tide is high is non existing and within the sunrise beach area it is not my favourite to be honest. The path to the hotel is through some local houses and a seems to be dumpster. Not ideal, but to be honest we were in other hotels and it’s the same scenario. It’s the islands and developers fault. Would I recommend it? Yes, lots of positives.

A beuatiful bungalow you can't enjoy :(”
While Castaway has high quality and great service (especially check-in, thanks Pim!), there are “three strikes” which keep us from recommending this property/returning to stay there. The three strikes: unfortunately, some decisions were made that mean actually staying in your bungalow is unbearable. Strike 1: there are no screens for the doors or windows. Given the mosquitoes, plus a laminated warning that there is a cat burglar about and you need to shut the doors when sleeping at night, the nights are roasting hot, even with the fans on. Strike 2: the cold-water shower’s flow is restricted to a trickle, literally! Although ostensibly to save water, you cannot rinse shampoo out of your hair—ridiculous. (And if they really wanted to be so eco, why give every bungalow 2 plastic bottles of water everyday? Why not separate trash? etc etc.) Strike 3: though we knew the wifi would be poor (as reported by many here), in Castaway it is non-existent. In 3 days it never reached our bungalow

Cool and artsy right on the beach”
We loved this hotel. The design is nice and artsy with recycled wood and beautiful Thai fabrics. The bungalow was very romantic and chill with a view of the ocean. As a new couple the toilet situation wasn't ideal as there's no door (and only cold water), but it's fine. We will definitely go back again!

Has potential but let down by noise and unfriendly staff”
The hotel is located right on the beach which is great. However, we arrived at 9pm after a day of traveling and could hear the bar next door playing loud music as we checked in. We were reassured that our room was on the other side of the resort but it was still audible when we got into our room. Generally we found the staff to be unfriendly, there was also a sales pitch wrapped up into the check-in when we arrived. This was not the relaxing retreat we were hoping for. We stayed at a nearby hotel for the rest of the trip and it was far better and the same price.

One of the nicest hotels in Ko Lipe”
The Hotel ist directly on the Beach. We were lucky and had seaview even in the 4th row. The food is good, a little bit expensive and it takes time. The Bungalows are nice. At the groundfloor you have thr bathroom, on the top the bedrooms. Ko Lipe itself is not that nice, because the waste is everywhere and very very crowded. There are much better island in the sourrounding like Ko Tarutao or the Trang Island Group. If you go be sure to go to the plancton swimming at night.

4 nights in Castaway”
Receptionist was not helpful. Reluctant to pass message to Castaway diver center to cancel diving booking as I was unwell and the shop was closed at 7pm. You are signing up for entire 'bungalow' for a room and a bathroom. Queen size bed and modern toilet. Low shower pressure and the toilet doesn't look clean. Food is more pricey compare to others on walking street. No hot water and air-conditioned in the bungalow. Make sure to spray yourself with lots of repellent.
