Myself and three friends stayed in the Simple Life Resort for 3 nights earlier this month. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised with the hotel as the staff seemed friendly, the rooms were quite big and both had balcony's and we seemed to be in an area with a lot of amenities. We made our way down to the... More

We stayed in a deluxe standard room which was good, it was spacious and had everything you needed. The location of the hotel is spot on but not on the beach if that's what you are wanting. It is conveniently placed at the top of the main walking street on koh Tao (middle of Sairee beach)and opposite a 7-11 shop... More

Overall this hotel is great- rooms are decent- staff are friendly- great location. The bed sheets didn't get changed the whole time we were there which was 7 days- although the room was made up everyday. The wifi wasn't great at all- as soon as you locked your phone it logged you out- so you had to fill out log... More

I would definitely come back there, staff especially Kee has been amazing with us, taking care of everything in advance and caring for us!! She was exceptional, really. In addition, the rooms are spacious, quiet although right in the center of everything, clean, comfortable, relatively reasonable pricing.

Just moved on from a 6 night stay here. Everything about it was amazing. The staff are all so helpful and most speak very good English. The manager especially is so lovely, speaks very good English and will always try her best to accommodate you. I can't eat gluten and she was very helpful with this. The 'bell boys' were... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and loved it. You have your own "bungalow" with a porch. The location is within walking distance of everything. The receptionists were very kind and helpful. The brekky buffet is decent. The Simple Life Restaurant has amazing Pad Thai.

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

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
