We stayed for 7 nights for the beginning of our trip around some of the Thai islands, and what a way to start! The villa was spacious with a huge, comfy bed! The room came with a TV, safe and bathroom. We had the villa at the end of the row which looked directly onto the little beach and onto... More

I will definitely be staying here again

Bit of a let down after Ibis Samui. Not very friendly staff, dirty rooms and pool. Staff looked as if they tried, seems more of a lack of management problem. Tatty here and there and grounds open from the street. Noise from the street and restaurant and neighboring buildings. Beds were comfortable and short walk from the beach. Breakfast: food... More

I had never been to Koh Tao and booked this hotel online at Hotels.com I was skeptical, after reading all the horror stories on the island with bathroom issues, a/c issues, and overall cleanliness. That being said, I expected the worst....I couldn't have been more wrong! This place is way better than expected. The a/c worked phenomenally, he room was... More

Exceeded expectations. Was a little unsure at first since it's near the night life at Sairee Beach but my room was towards the back and very quiet. Couldn't hear anything and slept like a baby. I came for diving and Nang Yuan Island so I needed a good location without the party atmosphere. The beach is 2 minutes away and... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and unfortunately we were expecting a little bit more for the price we were paying (7,500 baht). For that price I was expecting a more modern hotel with better facilities. The wifi was not good enough not even for Thai standards. No you don't go to Ko Tao to use the Internet... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for a few nights and while the most of our stay was enjoyable, there were a few issues. When we first arrived the sink had a drainage problem and the toilet didn't flush, however the staff were very nice and told us they could either fix it in the morning or we file change... More

We had a nice time at the Simple Life Resort, and the front desk staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. Though not a particularly fancy hotel, the rooms were nice and clean and the pool was great. The only downside we experienced was the weak air conditioning; it could take 2+ hours to cool the room. The heat in... More

We visited this hotel on our honeymoon. The girls at the reception were nice, but otherwise the hotel was a disappointment comparing to the pictures. The location is great with many good restaurants close by. It was quite a surprise when the waiter on the second morning asked which morning breakfast set we would like to order. During our first...

Okay, remember this hotel is on a small island and costs between £30 to £40 per night. It's never going to be The Hilton. It's a little rough around the edges in places, it could possibly do with a fresh lick of paint in some areas but it is well maintained, it's cleaned more than regularly and the most important...
