My 3 nights stayed at the Simple Life was great. Free pick up from the pier was wonderful after the long ferry ride. Room is clean and good in size with all the amenities you needed. Buffet breakfast is acceptable and they serve very good Thai dishes and Pizza in the evening. Pool is quite small but it's only 3... More

This was our third visit to the island and we always stay at this resort. Even though the Simple Life empire is expanding, I'm pleased to say it is not affecting quality. There are mixed reviews on here regarding facilities at this hotel and this is probably because they do offer different standards of accommodation. We stayed in a deluxe... More

Only time we had to pay a deposit and were quite worried because of this- we needn't have worried! Rooms are lovely, pool is a nice size, there are enough sun beds, location is good. Had massage at the massage place- was pretty good. Worth the money.

Stayed here for 3 nights in a Superior room with a pool view. It is worth paying the extra to upgrade. The room was in a quiet spot, the air con was brilliant, bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was awesome (even had urinal), fresh bathroom & beach towels everyday. The staff are very friendly & will help u book... More

apparently the room is good, the bed is large, has tv and ac! the bathroom is also good despite not having hooks to hang the towel! the problem is that the room has a very strong sewage smell that comes out of the bathroom, and has a horrible noise coming out of some machines that are running non-stop just behind...

Hotel needs improvement. We ended up with a basic room right at the front entrance in view of reception, meant we could never let natural light in. Asked to upgrade but was told it couldn't be done as we were only staying three nights. Room smelt, very basic, shower barely useable. Not worth the charge. Pro: Location good right amongst... More

We decided to stay at this resort because we were diving with Simple Life Divers and while we loved our diving experience, we really did NOT like this hotel at all. Our room smelled of mildew and moth balls, the bathroom was small and poorly maintained, the towels were old and looked unclean. There is a path outside from the... More

I really enjoyed our stay at the SimpleLife. We only got to stay here for one night and I wish we stayed longer. Pros... We had a room past the pool area and it had a lovely veranda with tables and chairs which was nice. The room was really big and had so much space and the towels were really... More
