Unfortunately they're charging rates that are simply not applicable to their hotel conditions. There are worn out stairs, ants, sewage smell, our sliding glass entry door was dislodged from the frame and wouldn't lock (they did come and fix it). Additionally, we were there for 5 nights and they literally didn't come to clean our room or check in with us once. We finally asked for more toilet paper and trash bags. We could go on and on. I feel sad about this review because the staff was trying really hard but they couldn't make up for the poor conditions of this hotel. If they were charging much less our expectations would have been aligned.

When entering our room I was struck by the good look and scent of a very clean room. After our first night I must post this review after reading earlier review about sewage smell! The sewage on this tiny island isn’t 100% top modern, tourist flush paper and issues appear. There’s no issue with strong smell when writing this on december 31 / january 1. So I guess the plumber has fixed the problem in room 2006. The stairs are a challenge indeed! Irregular, sometimes steep or leaning. But we found the shortcut to the beach passing room 203 to be very nice indeed and after adjusting our wifi to connect with restaurant the younger son is also happy staying here! The breakfast buffet was a nice suprise, since we got the impression that breakfast wasn’t included. Eggstation was great. I appreciated the seabreeze when having breakfast. Our view from balcony was the best on Lipe when the new year 2023 greeted us with the fireworks from Sita resort next to us. Some loud beach club music reached us but we could sleep anyhow. The staff is kind and good! Today we received a lovely new years greeting with a card and homemade cake. The bumpy road is a heaven in dry december comparing to state of the roads when rainy season is doing it’s work. Then you must get of the ride and push! You get stuck in the mud! In general the waste management has been a headache for Koh lipe for a long time. To many visitors on a tiny island. But as a guest I try to contribute by not littering and avoid touching so not destroying nature in sea or on land. I recomend Chareena hillside for people enjoying a balcony with views and a private feeling when watching the world go by. I spotted some lovely birds just next to the bungalow! Maybee a kingfisher! I would’t recomend this hotel for partypeople or familys with small kids or disabled.

Koh Lipe revie We really wanted to give more stars for this stay but unfortunately the little things really added up and detracted from our experience at Chareena Hill. We had great service upon arrival, however the drive up to our accommodation was sad. Terrible mud roads, rubbish everywhere and nothing looked after - a stark contrast to the touristy front of the island. This can not be helped, but is such a shame. The resort is poorly maintained - uneven stairs, rotting timber pathways, mouldy bathrooms. We were originally in room 206 and while the view was breathtaking (truly the best on the island) the smell from the sewage and septic system was unbearable. We couldn’t sit on our veranda to enjoy the view on the hammock because the smell was so potent. The entire walk up the (many many) stairs smelled of faeces and drains. We put up with it for a night but after that decided to do something and ask for a refund to move hotels. They wouldn’t grant this and suggested we swapped rooms. We agreed and down graded views to escape the smell. The bathroom in this villa had no shower drainage accept beside the toilet so when we showered, the whole bathroom flooded. No alcohol at the bar which meant a decent walk to any drinks. No pool/ extra ammenities, which for the price point, was disappointing. Positives - the view!! There is nothing else like it at Pattaya Beach. It’s about a 5 minute walk from the hustle bustle and nighttime noise which meant restful sleeps! Staff were generally helpful, organised our transfers and carried our bags up the stairs. Thank you for our stay. It’s a shame really, this place could be fabulous.

The location is perfect and the staff are very helpful & friendly. I requested massage in the room, snorkeling and call the taxi. They supplied good service and reminded me the time schedule. They arranged the transportation for me so that I was not upset for a long journey. I spent 4 days and 3 nights in the island. I chose the correct place to live. It led me to a comfortable life even I got sunburned. Overall, I hope I could spend more time there and go back again ASAP.

The Grand Sea View room provided me with an amazing view of Pattaya Beach. I enjoyed chilling in the hammock all day. The wooden bridge in front of the resort is also nice with a stunning view of the ocean. I do love their location, quiet and private. However, the food was a bit salty (both room service and breakfast). The staff told me that they have lot of breakfast menus to choose but when I went there I could choose either fried rice or American breakfast set. The pick-up car was dusty. The A/C took longer to cool my room. TV signal was weak at night. I also smelled alcohol from the technician who came to fix the TV.

I stayed here 2 night (5-7 Nov 2021). I feel so upset with the room and staff here. 1. I book family room which should have hammock in balcony, I haven't got one. I've asked the staff there and he said just it doesn't have for some room. 2. The bathroom is so dirty and smell terrible. 3. When check-out. I've moving to The Rock Serendipity. I'm the first group to come to check-out​ in lobby but they mamage us to go last one. We've to wait 1.30 hours to wait 5-6 groups of people to go first just because they're going to another direction. We were just left waiting like that and they just gave us 3 can of Orange drink fir waiting almost 2 hours!!!! After a lot of complains from me, The staff name "Nam" call a taxi for us otherwise we must wait longer. Thanks to Nam, only one staff here who seem to have mamage​ment skill. Worst customer support. Poor man​agent​ skill. Such a nightmare.

Response from Kris G, Marketing at Chareena Hill Beach Resort
Responded 8 Nov 2021
Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your honest and valuable feedback. Let me assure you that we take our guests' reviews and complaints very seriously and that we will make sure this does not happen again in the future. We would like to send you our deepest apologies for not being reactive enough, our front desk staff should have offered you, without delay, another option for your transfers to your next hotel. All our double rooms are set up with a hammock on the balcony. Our family rooms do not offer any hammocks. We are very sorry you thought the room would come with a hammock. One more time, I would like to apologize on the behalf of all Chareena Team for not meeting your expectations and I hope that despite your disappointment you enjoyed your vacation on our beautiful island.

Very good place to stay in koh lipe and enjoy the sea right under your feet. The room is cosy and clean. Food is very good too. If you like snorkelling and kayaking they can’t rent for chez all the equipments you need.

This hotel is all about its location. We stayed here based on the Bungalows with hammock perched at the end of Pattaya Beach. The hotel came and picked us from the ferry in a pickup and drove us back to the hotel. The staff was friendly and gave us a desirable room. The room was nice enough and inline with 3-star accommodation in remote setting, though the price is somewhat high. The bathroom features a wet shower. Breakfast was unexceptional. The hotel can charge a premium price given travelers' desire for the view with a hammock.   The hotel is on the quieter end of the island except for noise that carries across the water from a club at night. The island is mostly walkable and it is about 10-15 minute walk down the beach to “walking street.” Unfortunately, across the island at the end of “walking street” is the Art Beach Club that on multiple nights had its music blaring until midnight or later. The music carries across the water to the hotel. It would be nice if the noise from the club was regulated, as it benefits a few and impacts many others trying to enjoy their time on the island. The only way to avoid the noise would likely we be stay on the north side of the island so the hill would block the noise. We would consider staying here again given the Bungalows settings, but would consider looking for somewhere more protected from the club noise.
