Stayed for a week for a beach holiday. We were given a free upgrade although no one mentioned this to us. Room was very nice - large room and massive bed with a balcony area and even a drying room at the back. Reception girls were lovely and very helpful helping us arrange our further travel plans. Pool was good... More

A great place to stay if you are visiting koh tao. We had room number one right by the restraurant and near to the road but you couldn't hear a thing when in the room. Rooms are very comfortable, air con is not that powerful but works none the less. Outside space has a large drying rack for your wet... More

If you don't want to be right at the beach front then this is a pretty good place. The rooms are spacious and beautiful and comfortable - big beds. The balconies upstairs are nice and the pool is lovely too. The only downfalls are that there are no beach views and it is a little walk to the beach. However... More

My brother and I stayed 3 nights at Simple Life in late March 2014 and we really enjoyed our stay there. The reception staff (3 ladies who were almost always there!) is very friendly, warm and helpful. Some of the friendly restaurant waiters double up as porters for the shuttle rides so do tip them well - it's a tough... More

The two ladies on reception are extremely helpful, they assist in booking any flights ferries and coaches. The room was lovely, very clean and spacious! The location was perfect near the beach but away from the noise! The restaurant is great lots of cocktails, burgers, pizzas, thai food. Fab hotel! Free wifi and they organise transfer from the ferry free... More

pretty good hotel. there are some things I didn't like - We upgraded to boutique standart room and they were pretty old. Breakfast buffet is average. nice pool though. Free WIFI. When you come to the island from the ferry , hotel's staff take you to the hotel and you don't have to take taxi , which is nice.

Didn't stay here but came for breakfast a couple of times as it was the only place open at 6am (before diving). The buffet has a range of food but it was pricey. The service is attentive and friendly.

Stayed at Simple life hotel for 2 weeks! Service was good! The breakfast that's included every morning is decent but not a lot to choose from! Rooms and pool were good! Nice and central in Koh Tao! Only down side is that Koh Tao is being developed so there was 2 construction sites going on while we were there! Besides... More

This was a really lovely little hotel in a great location on Koh Tao. Only a 2 minute walk to the beach. Pool was lovely, with a nice area to sit and read a book. Wifi worked well and there were TV's with cable in each room. We had to move rooms once as our airconditioner broke. The hotel staff... More

We didn't book anything when coming to the island so when we first arrived, we were staying at the hotel across the street in a horrible upstairs apartment room! We decided to switch in the morning and so we walked over to the Simple Life (across the street, so no beach access) and it was perfect! Their pool was open... More
