We have recently stayed in Simple Life resort for 4 nights. The location is GREAT if you want to be right in the hub of the back packery area of Koh Tao. It is set far enough back however to have absolutely no problem with noise apart from the occasional drunkard strolling home after a night at a local beach... More

1. Room: spacious, comfortable, well-decorated. We even added one extra bed for the kids, and it still felt roomy. One of the kids (9 y.o.) slept on the couch, it was big enough. 2. Staff: speaks good English, very helpful 3. Pool: great large pool 4. Location: it's perfect. Not beach front, but only 5 min walk to the beach,... More

Loved our stay at simple life. Easily our favorite hotel on Tao. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the pool was beautiful with a nice balance of shade and sun. The breakfast was always nice. Our room was perfect with a massive and extremely comfortable bed, perfect big bathroom. The only thing I wasn't crazy about would be the... More

We booked Simple Life quite last minute and luckily got one of the few remaining rooms and a good price. The rooms were clean and spacious, also including very large showers. We found the staff to be very helpful, especially when my boyfriend lost the back of his watch and we looked absolutely everywhere and we were at a loss,... More

The room was nice and spacious but the moment we walked into it we noticed a smell, walked into the bathroom and smell got worse. It was from the drain in the bathroom, went to reception... More

The location of this hotel is good as it is close to Sairee Beach and we got picked up from the ferry port. The hotel itself was average. The room was clean but nothing special and the bathroom smelt of sewerage. Pool was large and plenty of sun loungers and there is a small pool for children. Free breakfast is... More

Location, rooms, staff were all great. It's not right on the beach, but the walk is literally 4 minutes. It's in the middle of the main street on the island, but very peaceful once inside the huge room. The AC was perfect. Amazing bathroom. Really helpful staff. Definitely recommend.

Travelling with family and friends, we had 3 rooms - very spacious, bed a little hard but I think that's typical in Thailand. Breakfast was great and the restaurant staff were all really friendly. Great location, only a couple of minutes from the beach and central for all the shops etc but not too noisy. Free pick up/drop off to... More

I stayed here for 3 nights with a friend I was travelling around Thailand with. The room was absolutely amazing - clean, spacious, and well decorated. The staff at the check-in desk where very friendly and were happy to answer any of our questions. We didn't spend much of the daytime there as went out to do things. However, we... More
