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 of charge which was great! Staff were lovely/friendly. Only down side was the breakfast wasnt great

Room Tip: We were moved as construction site at at the back so request room on the front side away from buidin...

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 that very happy!

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 were more than happy to help us change rooms to a room with a working aircon. Was no trouble at all.

Hotel is right next to/adjoined to a restaurant/bar where breakfast is served. Okay food. Would probably stay again.

There is a free shuttle to where the ferry leaves. Keep an eye out so you don't have to pay for a taxi!

Room Tip: We booked into a Standard Boutique room. Well worth the extra money, as the Standard rooms were a l...

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 for much long than the other hotel, they were willing to check us in early and she gave us a discount because we were staying right next to the restaurant. The room next to the restaurant was a little noisier, but it closed at 10:30pm and we could pick up some wifi from the restaurant when normally I don't think the rooms had wifi.
Breakfast in the morning was good - just your average egg, bacon, toast, sausage and then you got to go up and chose from a buffet your cereal, fruit, yogurt, Thai breakfast... Etc.
The reception was great, I was using the wifi (and getting eaten alive by mosquitos) and the lady at the reception gave me some of her bug repellant lotion! They also helped us book our bus to Bangkok - for the exact same price as the ferry company had it posted so they didn't charge an extra fee for booking. Also, renting a motorbike is just right across the street for a reasonable price and the reception gave us a helpful map to find different places to go around the island to snorkel.

Little things like that are what made our experience as memorable as it was!

Room Tip: Anything really, I think there was construction going on so the rooms further away from the restaura...

We had a great time staying here. The rooms are big and pretty much all of them have a view I think. The staff were very helpful, and lent us cutlery and plates on the nights we ate in. We hired a moped to get around as it was cheaper than using the hotel taxi. Lots of great beaches only minutes away. Great restaurants close by as well. The infinity pool is lovely (if a bit of a trek).

Room Tip: Not sure, we stayed in the lotus building, and we could see the sea, but I think all the rooms have...
