Stayed 10 days at simple life resort with my husband and 10 year old daughter. We loved it. Big room, very clean, excellent staff. Anything we needed from scooters to bookings the receptionist always helped us with a smile. Breakfast was also perfect. Great hotel, recommend it to all. Anything negative about our stay? ABSOLUTELY NOT!

I stayed here with my cousin in January 2014 and we were both delighted with the hotel. We had two huge comfort rooms, with beds big enough for a whole family (!), a lovely little balcony where one could sit and have a view of the swimming pool, a huge bathroom with walkin shower, a couch and coffee table, a...

Rooms were OK, we upgraded to the deluxe room and the balcony was nice. Not what you'd get in a 4 star resort, but the room and the bathroom were clean and spacious. The breakfast was not good, but the staff at the hotel was excellent and the location was phenomenal tons of great restaurants in walking distance and just... More

This place is perfect to stay. The rooms are large and bathroom is great, although you the walls are quite thin. It is in the perfect location, you step outside and you are in the main part of Swairee beach, surrounded by restaurants, shops and spas. The beach is only a two minute walk. You can leave your key at... More

Great location on the main road at Sairee beach. About a minute walk down to the beach. I took the basic a/c rooms right at the front near the restaurant. The rooms were very spacious, neat, clean, comfortable and very well maintained. Big enough bathroom. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. I'm not sure why Ive read reviews stating...

So after travelling in Thailand and booking hotels as we go, I've had no problem thus far (firstly because its quiet season and secondly because all the staff I have encountered were more than happy to help). After booking our room through booking.com we arrived at the hotel and the receptionist staff were rude and stated that they had not... More

Perfectly located - a walk from the beach, room was fantastic (we had the upgraded room) with lovely balcony. After being in the hustle and bustle of samui it was a welcome relief to get to Koh Tao. The room was lovely, very clean and the pool was sooooo hot. We went for cocktails at simple life a few nights... More

Nice place! Good clean rooms, aircondition and wifi works, breakfast is nice. Staff is super friendly and helpfull. Good location as well. Bit of noise from the bar, but that is almost imposible to avoid that close to the center and the beach. Would stay again!

We stayed in the superior room as most of the rooms were booked and we had arrived last minute. It cost a little bit more than we had planned on spending however the room was gorgeous. Huge comfy bed and huge shower room. It was simply stunning. The location was pretty much perfect. A 5 minute walk to the beach... More

After arriving from Koh Phangan and being spoilt at the Le divine Comodie we were disappointed with a lot of the hotels on offer on Koh Tao. After vewing no less than 9 hotels we came to the Simple Life which offered a high quality room, super air conditioning, a really nice environment and great value (1,600 bht per night... More
