Nice little hotel, not the best location and the pool isn't great but the reception team kept me there a week rather than 3 days, they are exceptionally helpful, very funny, make you feel like you are VIP the entire stay . The restaurant staff are all great too, had a lovely time here .

Originally booked for a week, extended to two. Moved chalet as during night occasional shouting and yelling woke me up. A short distance away from the path sufficient to reduce the problem. Reception Staff extremely helpful, from general enquiries and translating to booking return trip to Bangkok. Very convenient for bar, restaurant and simple life diving. Beach small and basic...

Hotel from the outside looked very average but when you get inside its nice but you won't use the hotel other than to sleep & shower because there is so much to do on koh Tao. Staff were friendly & very helpful & told us the cheapest & safest way to get around.

We stayed in the hotel for a couple of nights and had a pleasant stay. The hotel is very well located and the service is pretty good. The room is nice, but the bathroom need some updates. It has a nice swimming pool and you get a discount on massages at the hotel. Ensure you let the hotel know when... More

I came to simple life to complete my open water certificate - which was fantastic, but sadly the resort itself was very far from this. The diving and the accommodation seem like entirely different entities. The staff working in the hostel / resort were rude and often didn't seem to want to help. Although the dorm room was not that... More

Stayed for one night, thank god for that. Very basic place to stay, no hot water in the room and when we informed staff about this we got a rude response back. Very basic, ok for one night but wouldn't stay again.

Stayed here for two nights in a standard room. The place has pros and cons. Pros It's in a good location, central close to all bars, restaurants, beach etc. They collect you from the pier which is nice after you've been travelling. Cons Bedding was very worn, had holes in it. Shower was old and water was cold. Staff in... More

Nice resort. Good value for money. The rooms are large and spacious. The breakfast is very rich. They have a pickup from the pier that saves the taxi cost of 200-300bat. The most important thing is the staff. They always were keen to help. We had great time!

We chose Simple Life Resort after reading the reviews and the quiet location. We were very pleased with our choice and had a very comfortable 9 days. The communication prior to arriving was prompt and informative which made our arrival at ease. The boutique room was as described and true to the pictures. The bed was super sized and comfortable...
