My friend and I loved our stay here at Simple Life! I learned a lot during my Rescue diver course with Jamie and even though I was the only one in the course everyone was very attentive and helpful. I had time for three fun dives after my course which were a lot of fun and Sebastian the dive master...

I could not be happier with my experience at Simple Life Resort. I was so impressed by the enthusiastic and helpful service from reception (especially one of the lady staff who was super bubbly... but unfortunately I don't know her name). The staff really made sure that I enjoyed my experience at the resort and made the effort to remember...

We decided to stay in Simple Life during our vacation in Koh Tao but it was our worst choice ever. The rooms are big but the structure is horrible! They have some parts under construction and the staff (with the exception of a woman that I believe is the manager) don't speak English very well. The breakfast is horrible and...

Me & my boyfriend stayed here for 6 nights during our 3 week holiday in Thailand. It was our favourite resort so far! The location is a perfect walking distance to the Sairee beach and great nearby restaurants. The rooms were a good size, kept really clean and the staff couldn't have been more delightful!! Nothing was ever a problem...

This is rated as a 4 star resort when I think it is 3 star. The rain in December caused our roof to leak, however, the staff was quick to respond and give us a different room. Rooms were basically stand alone and there is no real view except from one room at the end of the row.

No major complaints with the resort, aside from the price doesnt quite match the expected conditons. For approx $100/night in Thailand you'd expect full blown luxury, but maybe in peak season this is a normal price for such a place? That said, the room was nice, tv/cable worked, shower toilet fine, nice bed, its a long walk to reception but...

We had read the reviews and noted someone complained over stolen laundry. We decided to give it a go anyway. The lady we dealt with on the desk was horrible when we checked in, she wanted a cash deposit for the key but not to give us a receipt for it and then became very rude when we asked for...

The entire stay was at the resort was relaxing and fun. Our room was clean and spacious, with a great balcony for enjoying the weather. The staff was friendly, helpful, and funny. The location is excellent, close to many good restaurants and far enough from the partying to be quiet. Sairee beach is a short walk from the hotel, so...

We stayed here over Christmas when visiting the island. It's right in the thick of it, surrounded by other bars and restaurants so if your looking for somewhere quiet to retire look elsewhere. About a five minute stroll to the beach. Our room was a good size, we had AC and hot water and a small balcony area. There was...

Very central located in Sairee and surprisingly quiet inside the compound. you hardly hear the traffic noise when you are relaxing at the pool. The staff is nice and friendly, my room was more than okay considering this as a backpacker spot. The breakfast then like a backpacker spot. Try to avoid it.
