We stayed here for 8 nights in a deluxe room, which was nice, big and comfortable. I wanted a place with a decent pool, walking distance to the beach and dive shops, yet quiet at night without people walking past your room. The nice girt Les on reception recommended Oli's Motorbike rental, which turned really well. They don't keep your... More

I moved here from another place that had noisy building work going on. While it's not on the beach I chose Simple Life because of its quiet location, and got exactly what I wanted. My "boutique" room cost me 2000B per night but had a hot shower, great aircon, a fridge and a super-comfy bed, as well as a nice... More

Stayed at Simple Life for 5 nights, initial little mix up over room request but this was quickly sorted. The hotel is quite small and set back from the beach, still close to everything but quiet at night to sleep. You have to leave a deposit when you arrive and they will deduct anything you spend on the mini bar... More

I'm amazed this place gets quite solid reviews. Stayed here one night, then moved to Coral Grand resort on the beach (which itself wasn't perfect, but much much better for less money). There are 10 or so beach front resorts on the north side of Sairee beach, all of them look better than Simple Life, and half of those are... More

Simple life resort was great! We did our open water dive cert and our instructor Steve Cochran was amazing cannot recommend him enough! He is a great teacher and you can tell he loves what he is doing. All the staff were super helpful and the rooms were nice and clean.

We stayed here for 4 nights in January. The hotel was ok, was about a 5 minute walk to the start of Sairee beach which is the main part of Koh Tao with plenty of bars and restaurants. The rooms are average, they are clean but not much to them. The pool needed updated it was outdated with cracked floors.... More

I stayed here for 6 nights in January and enjoyed all of it! The standard room was fantastic, with comfortable beds, and a fridge which sells beer and water for almost the same price has 7/11. The room was quite clean, and had hot water and a/c. The staff members at both the hotel and the restaurant were great! I... More

We arrived at the hotel via taxi as they did not inform us of the shuttle service they provided, taxi wanted 400 baht for a five minute ride. Hotel is pleasant enough, looks nothing like the photos that attracted us in the first place, rooms are very small, but clean and the bed was excellent. Wifi was very annoying as... More

Stayed here for 4 nights over new year. Arrived super early and had to wait for room, but the staff were very friendly and got our rooms made up to check us in early. They even gave us towels so we could spend the morning on the beach! Great location - easy walking distance around sairee village. Wifi is free,... More

We just spent 5 nights here in a pool view room. The rooms are clean and spacious with a large bathroom and balcony. It's a mid priced resort with all the amenities that you expect, however coffee making facilities would be nice. The pool is nice with plenty of sunbeds. It is at the northern end of Sairee beach (no... More
