                Fantastic resort, great service”

                Friendly service; easy access to both main beaches; quiet and relaxed

                We just can't be more satisfied on our decision of booking at Gecko Lipe. We originally booked here for 1 night to freely explore alternatives once in the island, but once there and doing a little research, we didn't think twice and stayed all our time (9 nights) there! The resort is located roughly in the center of the walking street, and from here is a truly short 5 min walk to either Sunrise Beach or Pattaya Beach - important since this allow you to freely explore both "sides" of the island at will, plus having all restaurants and stores at hand. Sunset beach is also easily accessed, 10-15 min walk. The resort opened last Dec so the facilities are brand new. They have just made a TERRIFIC work in the ambiance and decoration of this resort, with well maintained gardens and trees that provide a nice and refreshing spot when the sun hits. We noticed several guests that, just like us, stayed in their bungalow terraces after beach time, to enjoy the tranquility this resort offers. We upgraded to a Deluxe Bungalow; it had a really good mattress, a very large bathroom size plus a really nice terrace overlooking the garden with hammocks. I checked also the standard ones; they are very reasonable, and located (perhaps) in the more secluded and nicer half of the resort - so don't get fooled by their standard status! People at the front desk were really friendly and smiling, and took care of providing you the best time while at their resort. There is beer garden being built at the entrance of the resort as well as the expansion of the "main building" where a nice bar and terrace is projected. I also appreciated much that owners engaged their local workers in English classes and cared a lot about their living conditions, something doesn't occur frequently. I would not hesitate a minute to refer this resort to my friends and anyone. Thanks for making our stay at Gecko Lipe a marvelous time!!

                Charming bungalows with really friendly staff”

                calm atmosphere, "green" and leafy, clean, close to "centre"

                Gecko Lipe Resort was the perfect place to be during our stay at Koh Lipe. It is really close to sunrise beach as well as pattaya beach. And if you leave the resort you are directly in the center of the island the "walking street", where you find all the great restaurants, shops and massage salons. The resort itself is settled in a beautifully green and leafy atmosphere.... and it's really peaceful. So perfect for relaxing. The arrangement of the bungalows, the plants etc. ... it's just perfect. You can see that all the fancy bungalows (with terrace) are made with love. Macarena and her staff are really friendly and they take care that the rooms as well as the whole facility are cleaned up every day. I was sad to leave and would definitely go back any time.

                Great little place...”

                Great Hosts, secluded spot, clean rooms.

                The Gecko Lipe Resort is a great little place and the owners are really friendly and accommodating. 5 minute walk to the beach, perfect distance to escape the noise but within easy reach of bars/food/party when you want it. We stayed in the standard bungalow, it was clean and cute. It is basic though, no flushing toilet etc, gotta use the bucket... but that's standard practice. The price is great and the beach is beautiful. Highly recommended!

                Bungalow Resort”

                new, clean bungalows, very friendly owners

                This place is recommended for those, who wish to stay near the main walking street and enjoy the natural bamboo-bungalow-style. The bungalows are new, clean and smell well. The owners are young, enthusiastic, very friendly and welcoming. Gecko Lipe is located in the center of the island, close to the shops and restaurants, but still offers you a guiet sleep-time in the night. Some mosquitos are present. Due to the building process in this resort, the restaurant does not exist yet, therefore for your breakfast&lunch&dinner you will be going to the main street nearby.

                room,

                gecko resort was really good except for one thing...mosquitos.even though the beds have a mosquito net the mosquitos still got inside the net and i ended up with about 50 bites over my legs which made my ankles swell up quite bad.so i would recommend for sure mosquito repellent.apart from that gecko was so good to stay and a would stay again.but..my main complaint is with lipe island itself.dirty beaches and packs of loose dogs numbering 20 or so just roamimg free all over the beaches.to fly 8000 miles to have this is unacceptable.pattaya beach is also too busy with boats,people and dogs,so its not a place to relax on at all.and because of all these issues i wont be coming back to lipe island again.but gecko resort is perfectly good.

                Peacefulness, cleanliness, central location

                I would recommend Gecko Lipe to any traveller who is not hung up on energy intensive modern trappings such as air-conditioning, tv, radio etc. The room was basic, but very clean, and therefore extremely good value for money. The food at the restaurant is of good quality and quantity, however it is marginally expensive than the shops in the high-street. The setting of the rooms within a mature and well tendered forest garden is fabulous, and the dreaded mosquito problem never materialised thanks to mosquito coils. I love this place and will be staying here the next time I am in Lipe.

                We stayed for 4 nights in Gecko Lipe. At first I was quite skeptical of this place, but upon arrival I was in awe. The place is located just behind the shop rows in Walking Street but the ambiance is so serene and peaceful. The room is simple but clean. The staffs were friendly and caring. They cleaned our room everyday and they will put mosquito repellent in front of your door every evening. They also provide bananas, tea/coffee/water, books in the common space. Would definitely come back to this place.

                Clean and Relatively Quiet Bungalows”

                Central on the island, Away from the loud nightlife, Close to restaurants and tour bookings.

                We enjoyed our stay. The way to either side of the island is only a 5-10 min walk and all food/shopping/tours are in between. Bungalows are clean and well kept. We booked one night in a Deluxe Bungalow and decided to stay another acquiring a Standard Bungalow (their last one available). Koh Lipe was very crowded and near to capacity in early Feb which was not to our liking but the snorkel tour nearby was quite nice. I would recommend Gecko Lipe Resort to stay if you go to Lipe!

                We were welcomed by the friendly owners and given drinks and a tour to our bungalows. The bungalows were brand new and very tastefully decorated. the hot shower and bathroom were very much appreciated as we spent a lot of time swimming, snorkelling at the island's many beaches.The bungalows are in a jungle setting and arranged to give each verandah privacy. There are good concreted paths to each bungalow and a excellent lighting system . After our initial 3 nights we extended for another 4days because we thought it was the best accommodation on Koh Lipe .

                Very nice and quiet surrounding, very good location between Pataya and sunrise beach

                Very nice, cozy and clean rooms. The surrounding of the hotel is amazing, hidden in the jungle. The location is perfect, one street up from the walking street and 5min walking from Pataya and sunrise beach. The staff is very friendly. During on stay on the island we saw a lot of places that were much more expensive and not comparable with gecko lipe. Only minus point is that the wifi doesn't work in the rooms and very bad connection in the reception.

                From what I could see, this is definitely the best budget accommodation you will get in Koh Lipe. Lipe is a bit more expensive than some places but definitely worth it. It really is paradise. There was maybe one place cheaper but apparently this place is budget standard to go with the price unlike gecko which is very comfortable and quite charming in fact. Thanks

                Great experience staying in a resort in jungle”

                Located in walking street of pattaya beach, so can easily take a walk at the street. This resort is special for me, its design and the facilities. A great experience when u chatting with friends in front of your room and sitting on the sofa chair provided in the hot afternoon time. However, too many mosquitoes around but the room has mosquito net. And, I think a conditioner room is better than the fan one, as it was very hot at koh lipe, even at night.

                We enjoyed our stay so much that we decided to stay for longer. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The bungalow was tidy and cleaned every day. We were given also water containers in order to save the nature from plastic bottles. The mosquito net above the bed works well against any bugs. Wifi is available only in the common area. The location is basically at the main walking street but allowing enough privacy from the street noise. Definitely an excellent accommodation and we would choose it again when visiting Koh Lipe.

                koh lipe is an expensive island so not as cheap as other islands for budget accommodation but as soon as you get there and see the place this will go out the window, it really is paradise. There is one place cheaper I think but from what I heard, gecko is 5 star in comparison. Really comfy bed, definitely recommended.

                Our stay on Gecko lipe Resort was very short and for one night this hotel are perfect. For a longer stay I had chose another one. The rooms was very small, the bed took the most of the space and it was very dark inside. The bathroom was at the other hand both light and really nice. It felt like you took a shower outside when you actually was inside. Hotwater was good. The internet sucks btw and the fan didn't really reach us when we laying in the bed, so it was a little hot. The mosquito-net was fresch and clean. Good value for your money!
